    It's not that bad but sometimes I have to squeegee that shit off me. I'm sure that puts me in the asshole camp.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I wouldn't personally consider it to be 'out of touch with my emotions'. Rather, I would consider it to be 'having control over my emotions'.

    On average, the NT values emotional willpower more than the other Keirsey temperaments.

    There are some NTs who will intentionally target-practice an F's sore spots.


    But some Fs are extremely quick to assume that's what an NT is doing when he isn't. And even when the NT tries to explain he was merely speaking candidly and meant no harm, some Fs refuse to believe it.


    I think they assume that because that's what they do.

    If not, then why would you be so proud to be cold.


    This signifies one of two things to me,

    A) You're not an NT
    B) You think it is cool to be disconnected


    Now both of these theories seem really interesting to me in that they probably signify some other deeply rooted emotional issue. Which in itself is ironic. No?
    Who died and made you god? Seriously...

    I consider myself to be a good person. I know a lot of other INTJs and they're all great people without exception. Some are shy, all like their own space, all are hard working and studious. They care for other people, but mainly for their own family for whom they'd do anything to help. They have a small circle of close friends and don't equate how good they are as people by how many friends they have on their MSN/facebook list (like a lot of exfxs do).

    However, we don't tend to walk around all day with big stupid grins on our faces, but I don't think that makes us assholes. It reminds me of a Bill Hicks sketch:

    "Don't you hate those people that come up to you and say ... 'hey you know it takes less energy to smile than it does to frown?' 'Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone?'"

    Yea, one of the few games in which it's probably a really bad idea to hit bullseye..

    Like ThatGirl, I find it annoying sometimes to read the frequent posts by self-proclaimed assholes. Sometimes it's funny, but it gets old fast. I'm an INTJ, and that crowd, in particular seems to have a lot of people who try to play up their assholery. It seems so superficial sometimes. Like, I can't count how many posts I've read from INTJs claiming to have no soul and wanting to take over the world from their garage.

    I partly blame Myers-Brigg for this. Some people read the type descriptions and then cling to them rigidly. Their type becomes a huge part of who they perceive themselves as.

    I think it's the nature of the internet to encourage gratuitous self-obsession and the belief that our little differences are incredibly important. Some NTs who are looking for a unique public identity may latch on to their asshole-ness and try and magnify it. Maybe for some it's better to be an asshole than unnoticed. Of course, I'm talking about the NTs who take a great deal of pride in their supposed heartlessness. I think it's a case of people looking for an identity. And I think that there are certain immature or lost people simply imagining themselves to be NTs because NTs seem so masculine, strong, and disconnected from emotional pain.

    Sure, some NTs are genuine NTs. Some are also genuine assholes. But when some of them constantly mention what big assholes they are, I do have to wonder about their agenda behind it. Like, yeah, you've told me 100 times that you're a heartless bastard. Why do you care enough about that fact to constantly bring it up?

    I don't agree that an NT has any more "control" over his/her emotions than an NF (for example) on average. They just have less emotion to "control".

    I definitely think that's the reason a lot of younger folks do it.

    Being "mellow" is much more self-satisfying than being icy, and is most likely much more appreciated by the world around us. Different strokes I guess, but I do think the internet has a HUGE influence on our perception here. I rarely meet other NTs in the real world, and they're almost always easy-going.
