No one gets pissed off when people say SJs are helpful, SPs are spontaneous, or NF are dreamers. But say NTs are intelligent, and you're in a world of trouble. Fact of the matter is each of these is a description of the type. These are Types not constants. There will always be variation, but there is a pattern within the type that was apparent enough to be put into the general description.
Yeah, there is such an obvious correlation between NTs and intelligence, it seems silly that people want to disregard it or call it a wash.
Maybe the NFs feel left out... You guys are smart too, intelligence relates more to N/S than it does T/F.
Well there are a few N/S questions on the MBTI test that do totally depend on intelligence.
It could be said that virtually no stupid people "easily understand new theoretical principals", so if a stupid person answers that way on the test, they are almost certainly mistyping themselves.
But other N/S and T/F questions aren't directly related to intelligence, so it's conceivable than a stupid NT could get away with a low NT score and not be mistyped.
That just highlights the subjectivity of the term (stupid) as most sensors will tell you that that theory without application is stupid. A sensor could easily point to the sensotard thread as a sign of stupidity, but we are more forgiving than that.
stu·pid (stpd, sty-)
adj. stu·pid·er, stu·pid·est
1. Slow to learn or understand; obtuse.
2. Tending to make poor decisions or careless mistakes.
3. Marked by a lack of intelligence or care; foolish or careless: a stupid mistake.
4. Dazed, stunned, or stupefied.
5. Pointless; worthless: a stupid job.
1. Note it doesn't define what isn't being learnt or understood. If an intuitive cannot understand or learn the importance of details, or learn how to interact with the environment physically then they're stupid by definition.
2. See sensotard thread (oops not so forgiving afterall )
3. Sensors and intuitives tend to care about different things so they might both look careless to each other
4. Intuitives can be like this when overloaded with sensory detail
5. The worth of something is subjective, Sensors and Intuitives place value on different things, so they will see each other as "pointless".
Also there is a reason that the test isn't depended on it's own and usually what is considered to be someone's "true" type is found through self-analysis. So a stupid NT may not test as NT but could very much fit the "whole" type.
The fact that an ENTJ like myself questions your post, clearly shows I am unbiased. A biased NT would agree with any bullshit that flew out of your mouth.
Frankly, I think your OP comments are irrational.
If this is the best of possible worlds, what then are the others?
