I love the man dearly but I know he is a bully, like many of the ENTPs on this forum.

    Do you think it is acceptable for you to make generalizations about INTJs when you are unwilling to hear them made in reference to ENTPs? That certainly doesn't strike me as very NT. If you're going to say things like "INTJs are (x)" or "INTJs do (y)", you ought to be prepared to entertain the same treatment of ENTPs.


    Oh my goodness... I never said you couldn't criticize me or an ENTP, I just asked if I had said something offensive because you said something about a pot calling a kettle black.

    I know we can be seen as assholes. There have been countless threads about it. I've also apologized countless times for being an asshole. But this thread asked a question about INTJs specifically. I made a comment in reference to genes and had my intelligence insulted. I don't do that to people.

    Most ENTPs would at least want to hear your arguments while most INTJs are content with saying that you could have no possible way of understanding the argument. And this is why people seem to dislike INTJs. But of course there are reasons for people to not like ENTPs or INFJs or ABCDs...

    And no offense but coming from an ENTJ this is comical. We're all a bunch of pricks, just in different ways.

    ^ I would PM you for details, but it's 3am and I'm going to bed.

    That said, I would like to emphasise that I don't dismiss ENTPs. As I said, I chose my current boss PRECISELY because I knew that he is an ENTP, and hoped that we would cover each other's blind spots. I know that I tend to dismiss ideas almost as quickly as I generate them, and that's why I don't easily get excited about them. Everyone, myself and my supervisor included, thinks that we're a very good fit. He is a whole lot better at selling ideas, and explaining possibilities than I am. He's also a lot better a communication and building collaborations. He sees the possibilities and sells the sky, I see the limitations in techniques and try to be conservative.

    While I was a lot more comfortable working with my previous INTJ supervisor (we had a deep and instinctive understanding), I have no doubt that my current boss helps me to develop more as a scientist. So I think you're mistaken when you think that I dismiss ENTPs. I believe we cover each other's blind spots, even if his do irritate me (as mine irritate him, I'm sure).

    However, from the NJ/NTJ point of view, discussing something that is obviously not the case and inherently flawed or unrealistic is pointless. To them, it's akin to someone arguing that the sun really does revolve around the earth. No time should be spent on its discussion at all.


    Hmm.. I'm not so sure that'd apply to all INTJs.. I've known a few IRL to enjoy discussing/debating the most ridiculous, outlandish & nonsensical concepts/topics/hypotheticals to the extreme [all in fun, of course].
    It's actually pretty hilarious when they create/apply some 'rational' line of reasoning to the imaginary..

    The difference is that this is in good fun and speculation when there's not a particular goal that needs to be reached.

    If you want to understand how to instinctively dislike 80% of the so-called INTJs, just go to their forum. Visit them, it will teach you a lot.

    Most of them are neurotic, misanthropic, narcissistic, pretentious, and severely lack humour.

    And unlike the ENTPs, where arrogance is only a facade, a game, a kind of comedy, most INTJs usually are exceedingly serious when they think they know everything better than any other people.

    A lot of them are irrational, irresponsible braggarts who are not even aware how ridiculous some of their claims actually are.

    ---

    Now the curious fact is that most of my close IRL friends are INTJs.

    And even here. But the INTJ subspecie you meet on Typology-central seems to be a very different breed, far more concise, polite and agreeable (1)...

    :[ That would probably be because you state that it is a "fact" without backing that up? I don't know. It seems like an unbacked assumption.
    I wasn't being serious. I was just playing along with the thread. I like INTJs. Overall they are good people and not malicious at all. Both my brother and my cousin have this temperament. And they are great.

    INTJ just seem cold cause they live in their heads most of the time. Alot of people think my brother is cold and judgemental but he's not even paying attention to anyone.


    (It occurs to me that I write so dry...that other people can't see I'm playing around. sorry about that)

    That's right: they are not malicious at all, but rather insufferable. Most of the time, they are way too self-absorbed and selfish to bother slander other people for fun.

    Too bad. (They don't know what they're missing!)

    Because that's usually the reality with INTJs who are debating a subject they have researched.

    Exactly. They are perfectly harmless. All they care about is themselves, their minds, and their perfect way of doing things. As long as you give them a book and something to analyze, they will leave you alone.

    And every now and then you can chit-chat with them about their new theories.

    (P.S. the above is a gross generalization)
