    Default Do INTJs often get into fights?

    Is it a rare or not-so-unbelievable occasion that an INTJ loses him/herself into (often mindless) physical altercation?

    How does an INTJ handle potent belligerence from others?

    I wouldn't say 'often,' but it's happened to me before.

    However, these were less of the 'actual fight' variety and more of the 'forcibly move you out of my f%*#ing way' variety.

    My dad and brother are INTJs, and I know eight other confirmed INTJs. The four I know very well have never gotten into a physical fight and they rarely engage in verbal confrontations. I have never seen any violence from the others either. INTJs do have tempers when they get competitive. When my brother is losing a game he will bite himself to save those around him from his 6'7" 260 lb. worth of fury. He has broken two bones in his hand from punching things when he has gotten made a me and he has broken a few chairs (mainly due to his size), but he has never laid a finger on anyone. The only time my dad is less than a saint is when he is being nagged by one special ESFJ or when he is losing, and at that point he never loses it physically.

    I don't know about INTJs, but I can share my experience.

    I've had several brief situations where I impulsively hit someone in fear or frustration, froze up, and then let them strike a few times before they realized I wasn't fighting back. In the worst one, I was blindly trying to spit on, bite, scratch, and kick the person for a moment before freezing up. Luckily someone else stopped that situation before it got out of hand.

    I'm just too freaked out by conflict, and too reactive/confused in such situations to seriously fight someone. I'm pretty sure my defective instincts will get me killed someday, though.

    I knew an INTJ who was always starting verbal altercations, probably because people act stupid under pressure and it amused him.

    When I was younger and angrier, I'd get into some fights, but I couldn't imagine it happening again.

    When I was younger, I used to lash out at my brother, but now? Not so much.

    When I was young I once struck a fellow but I felt awful about it. We shook hands afterwards and became friends.

    Normally I'll keep my mouth shut if I judge someone to be the type that will resort to violence, or if someone is hell bent on fighting me I'll run away.

    I despise people that need to use violence against others to solve arguments.
