Hi, glad you started a blog. And I wouldn't worry about being 'evil.' That's just subjective anyway. Besides, without evil, there's no good - so you help us ENFPs indirectly even if you don't intend to! LOL j/k
In all seriousness, though, I wouldn't worry about other people's perceptions.
If you are interested in language, words, linguistics, or foreign languages, check out my blog and read, post, and/or share.
I think that we didn't get this reputation just like that. I think that it is somwhat desrved actually. Since biologically our "job" is to organize the "tribe". Which can mean sacrificing an individual for a greater good.
I am sure that that human history was full of situation where you simply had to suffer loses in numbers. By this I mean that what not matter which choice you made someone will die. Because of this I think that we for the most part
have a "gift" or lacking empathy by quite observable degree. Since empathy can prevent us from making a good choice.
I usually try not to show my NTJ side to its full potencial because I have nothing to gain from social perspective.
What I don't understand about the concept of good and evil and soul and what not is how on earth can you judge any of these without a common basis for what they are?
It's usually the people who go around saying and meaning rather than joking "this is evil... you are amoral..." who can't tolerate any other definitions of good and evil but their own. Nor are they incline to explain what they mean and to work out their differences with you.
In my book, evil is a bad word because it's used as a label to indiscriminately feather and tar something without doing something fix it. (Unless the fix is to destroy it... which in this case isn't the act just as nonconstructive and thus evil?)
NTJs aren't evil... People hell bent on their own ways and ignore all other opinions are
This is the truth. It's better to just keep it to myself most of the time.
In todays world this "skill(s)" are not that much important because we have plenty of resorces. But in the past, critical/dangerous situations and cases when you are low in amount of resources NTJness can be quite useful.
"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Evil is a religious concept. And as such I tend not to buy into it. People are people. We can try to force everyone to be on their best behavior all of the time but it's an exercise in futility. Define best behavior. People have different ideas about what is acceptable or "evil". It's a fight against human nature. Opposing forces eventually meet somewhere in the middle and things usually balance out.
