    Default The last time you outsmarted an INTJ / INTP

    I today just was faced with a life and death situation, so business as usual. But then I needed some crucial information only the biggest jer... genius on the base happened to know:

    What does it mean to outsmart someone? One cannot know everything about everything. There could be a savant with a highly specialized area of expertise that could know more than a person in a given area, but I don't think that is outsmarting the person. And even if by your definition (which I await) it is such that in that case it would be an instance of outsmarting the person, that is not to say that on the whole they outsmart the person (for the person may outsmart them in multiple particular areas). Furthermore, a person of average intelligence who speaks fast can memorize a lot of technical data and fire it at you rapidly so that in creates a dynamic such that if you're not comprehending as fast as their speaking, it can make the person speaking think they're outsmarting another or the person who isn't getting it think they're being outsmarted. But this is false. And on the contrary, it could be the case that, when given the same start time to absorb the information, the other person might do it at twice the speed. Given that, we could hardly conclude that in the first case the person had outsmarted the other. Alternatively, there could be a person who talks at length about very insightful and original things, and another person who says nothing until they find a minute flaw--something many people are searching for to begin with. Would we call the exposition of that flaw an instance of outsmarting the person? Again, I think such an assumption is foolish to make. A comment, a counterpoint, a counterargument, even a lecture made by a person does not necessarily mean that they've outsmarted another. Outsmarting another, for me, means standing someone's logic on its head time after time and in such a way that the person is forced to agree with you (not out of whim or emotion, but understands that the level of sensibility is clearly superior). Given that definition, I've never met someone who has outsmarted me on the whole, and I've only met one person who I'd consider my equal in intelligence (though different).

    I've managed to outsmart an INTJ. I was coxing a crew shell, and he said that I wouldn't be able to dock and that I would crash. I ordered seats two and four to join in and seats eight and six to back it down. I docked it perfectly, and I proved the INTJ wrong.

    The last argument I had with one. That being said I don't argue something unless I'm sure of what I'm talking about, and I mean absolutely sure.

    I don't think I ever have outsmarted another INTJ or INTP. They seem to always outsmart me.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.
