    Angry NTs being too critical.

    So today was the first day of school. I'm a junior, and I'm taking an AP English Composition course.

    The class is NT dominant. To guess, I'd say 75% of the class is NT.

    We were having a discussion on books we've read in past years, past teachers we've had, and authors we like/dislike. Except, it wasn't really a discussion. It was more like the NTs criticizing and making fun of almost every single book we brought up, hating on a lot of the teachers we've had, and thinking they are better than half of the famous authors we covered. God, must be such an ego booster, being in that class. Thinking you are ahead of the game, thinking you know it all, when you can't back that up.

    Immature NTs piss me off.

    And it seems to be a common trend. They are so closed off to anything that they do not find logical, right, true, mathematically correct, or physically possible. They seem to make fun of teachers the most, and they have some of the biggest egos.

    But I'm only talking about immature NTs.

    I love my NTs here
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    hmm NT's young ones can be a bit precosious..

    One I know reflected on a story - he was in hospital when he was about 7 and the nurse was testing something so she asked him who discovered America...

    He replied... the answer you want is Christomer Columbus, but there are theories that XZ person found x number of years prior to that...

    Yes NTs, young NTs can be bad... really bad...

    They don't get much better with age but people put up with them better

    I would have thought English Comp would have a fair few NF's in it too....

    Sorry you had a lousey day

    PS -- why not start a thread on how insane NT's are.... :P

    this is more a function of being young vs being NT.

    In any case, just enjoy the class and good luck on the exam !

    Now just you wait a minute. 75% of your class is NT? Astounding. and you conclude this how?

    Fixed.

    Sounds like a fun course!

    Seriously? Interesting...I can't remember some of the people that were in my AP English Lit class, since it was a while ago, but the main ones I do still speak to are all NF (about five). Which makes sense since most of the time we were reading novels and analyzing poetry. I don't see what a bunch of NTs would be doing in there, unless they were just in it for the challenge.

    However, the teacher of the course was an INTJ. The best teacher I've ever had and I still keep in touch with her.

    Some of them are probably ISTJs. There were quite a few in my class.

    Haha! I'd love to be in a class like that. I was 1 of about maybe 3 people that I'd have typed as NT in my graduating class. 3 max (it was a small class size, 60 grads total, very small school).

    But, in all seriousness, high-school's going to have more immature people than mature. Just the nature of the place.

    Are you sure you aren't saying they're NTs because they are critical?
