    Default Observation Statement: NTs seem to be hard to please.

    I seem to get this from a lot of NT people I know. Where I can be excited about something for one reason, they get irritated at something for one reason. If they've seen it before, even if it's in a different form, they find it very boring. They pass it off as some sort of "generic plot with x blah blah" as if it was an experiment...

    Maybe they see the world as an experiment? INTJs and ENTPs I know seem to be that way.

    Discuss?

    They aren't irritated at the "something". They are irritated at you for getting excited at the drop of a hat.

    'At the drop of a hat' in NT standards I guess.

    I don't get irritated, I get apathetic.

    I have similar experiences, but with humor. And not just with NTs, with everyone.

    I appreciate wit, but what really makes me laugh are funny facial expressions and funny words. So people say I laugh easily and at stupid things.

    But I don't care, because I like to laugh.



    So basically, if you get excited and they don't care....well, that's their loss, because you're excited and they're not.

    I think it might happen with NT's more because we like to think of ourselves as "intellectuals," so anything that isn't "intellectual" isn't worth getting excited over.

    Hmmm, I don't get it. Are you saying that they get irritated when you get excited? Or that they are in general less apt to be excited about things? Or something else entirely?

    It depends on what it is. I had an older ENTX brother and he got passionate, not just excited about science. When we were younger he would lock the door and literally "force" me to listen to him talking about space, bodies, technology.
    Brother, that smile was stuck on his face.

    i'll bet this can be interpreted/viewed as irritated by some really sensitive people.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
