    well whatever....INTJs in general miss out on life a bit too much
    In general, if an extrovert speaks of missing out of life to an introvert you'll draw their ire. I think it's something about being constantly told to "come out of our shells" and being constantly forced out into the bright world outside when we'd rather curl up with a book in the cool dark basement. If you hadn't quantified yourself with "a bit" you might have irked me a little more.

    also, i figure it has to appeal to the Fi of every individual INTJ but what the hell...gotta start somewhere
    Hmm... sobbing?
    That always catches me off guard... and I don't cry in front of my family now because it makes them uncomfortable so they make fun of me and tell me to stop. But basically any time I see someone else cry in a movie or on tv, it might make me cry.

    It's not incumbent on the INTJ to domesticate what he finds personally gratifying against popular social mores, just as it isn't prudent for the ENTP to necessarily presume that his approach will be adopted by anyone other than him - even within his type. Actually, intra-typal friction is often an enthusiastic response to the wide-arching conformism of the MBTI. Individuality is far more relevant than type.

    What one finds meaningful doesn't have to be a universal characteristic for it to have gravity.
    actually ENTP doesn't really care who adopts his his approach..if it gets adopted, thats cool. if it doesn't, well thats fine too...maybe theres a better way

    and yeah...the people who think of type first and the individual second are in the minority


    i come to my conclusions because INTJ seem to have the most regrets in life....call it missed opportunities...and rather than do something to about-face it, they seem to accept it and live with it...even if it kills them

    We are so uninterested exactly because we have too much on our minds so we don't bother that much with things in our socilal environment.
    INTJs are quite alive actually, it is just that we are alive in a different way.

    Based on your answers in this topic, I don't really think an INTJ girl would be an ideal partner for you.

    ... well, unless you're very good looking.

    The latter. Or at least you have very different concepts about "missing out on life".

    A movie to break an INTJ: A stupid person survives, yet all the smart people are killed at random in accidents. Or, a movie where a man is about to structure a new computer system, but just as he presses the upload key, his computer explodes, killing him and his life's work.

    Is it really true that INTJs have the most regrets in life? I'd think that would be INFPs or other introspective emotional types. I rarely regret things because I've always been in tune with myself very well. I think I'm slow to adapt at times, but I don't regret that. I know I needed to go through what I did to become who I am today. Besides the J in me doesn't allow me to second-guess myself or my decisions much. I'm happy with what I am. Is that just me and not INTJs in general? Regret and guilt just don't work on me that well.

    Anyway, to answer the thread question, I have to say that I've never, ever sobbed in a movie, not even as a kid. Sobbing is something I do every couple of years (usually due to sleep deprivation). Movies that make me a little teary-eyed are usually about a kid or an animal or a person with lots of potential who dies. Bridge to Terabithia, A Walk to Remember (when I was 12), The Incredible Journey...
