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..
I love doing this. Pretty much all of my day is filled up with nonsense. I tend to wallow in the idiotic and ridiculous things that make most people shake their heads at me. What is more fun is making them stop and wonder if it could:
- Be True
- Not Be True
I tend to dislike getting into discussions with people I don't know very well about things that are important to me. I get very passionate and excited in those conversations, especially if I'm talking to someone who 'gets' me. Knowing my tendency to get all philosophical and wordy, I try to keep it under wraps for most of my interactions during the day, especially at work.
I actually think I come across as an airhead sometimes, a bit of a nut, but mostly its a kind of amusement that I play with all day to not get bored. Those moments when I let the intellectual barrier down and say something witty or really on the mark I get looks from people like 'I KNEW it!'. I think they sense that in my joking demeanor and lighthearted playing that the wheels are turning and the thoughts are just waiting for the right time to present themselves.
