    Default Do INTJ's generalize?

    If you're an INTJ, do you tend to generalize?
    Do you like and use generalities and general principles, rules, and trends?
    Do you dislike it when other people reject your generalities?

    1.yes
    2.yes
    3.I am not dicussing such matters with people for which I know that they can't handle it.

    The thing is that you can't talk about big picture without using generalities since you need the to create a framework if you are talking about something complex.
    Once you have that you can start talking about details and specifics. (if they are important for the topic/conversation)

    I definitely do. Then Ss pick at the details saying it isn't possible and miss my point, it gets frustrating.

    All INTJs generalize. It's a fact.

    You INTJs really have to STOP giving responses similar to what I would have given.

    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Do you naturally want to apply them to people?

    I think they generalize mostly because they can tend to limit the possibilities in their own minds. They construct set behaviors for certain groups and usually lock down that descriptor indefinitely.

    I wondered if I was the only one to have spotted the irony of the title, then read a bit and realized I was not. So that's good then

    *Tut* .. By picking apart the details, we could possibly establish new ideas/theories etc.

    I think NTs in particular have the habit of generalizing ideas/object/people/etc.
