    I've never heard or read that.
    As an INTJ, it's one of my goals in life to make sure I never have any regrets.
    I hate having regrets, so I avoid them at all costs.
    And I suppose I have a few concerning my marriage, and maybe my children,
    but I did the best I could at the time, so there's no sense in beating myself up over that.

    I've never heard of INTJs having the most regrets either. It seems to me that what happens has happened and there's really little use beating yourself up about it besides for a bit of catharsis unless that self-flagellation will help with your invention of a time machine.

    I have however heard that INTJs are one of the types that's most likely to seem unhappy when they really aren't. Perhaps that's what you're mistaking it for?

    Yeap that was my frst thought when I came across the question.

    Which is because I and T make you reserved, cold and distant what Es often see as depression.

    N can greatly help in making you look lost and J can often be interpreted as a denial.

    i did consider that...i've been told by some INTJs that they have issues...in that randomly tears started leaking when they are by themselves in their 'safe areas' like their rooms

    Well, maybe they're wounded INTJs then. I don't really think that typifies all of us. I'm a girl INTJ, I come from an extremely emotional family, and I still almost never cry... I'm a robot! I think healthy INTJs are happy in our own way and we don't have a lot of regrets. We have too much T and J to wallow...most of the time.

    I assume that that ThisGuy is referring to the sometimes weak connection between planning and doing that one can not too infrequently see in an INTJ, especially perhaps when the INTJ is moving into areas that are outside his usual competency. Where thinking things over does not always lead to action, and sometimes even a weak sense of ability to act alters what will be planned. Thus, theoretically, regrets and missed opportunities.

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.
    What you said...I'm very good at turning negatives into positives or opportunities.

    IME male INTJs are a bit more prone to regret.

    You know, however, of course, that as ENP, your role isn't to break down the poor sucker INJs, right? But maybe only if they've got a T on their J, I guess.

    Dude, we don't do Fe. If you want to start digging in with the probes and the pushing, and eliciting feeling, best you'll do is turn the INTJ inward. Not outward. Not looking back at you.

    It's a frailty, sure, but hello Joy Division.

    i was just thinking that...appealing to the Fi


    im not as much probing as i want understand her...i can somewhat predict her actions but not completely honed in on the intent yet...theres nothing in our convos that i can decidedly identify with a positive or negative on the romantic scale (well not quite true, but its vague)...so i turn to my Ne and when that sucker goes crazy trying to figure out her intentions
