    Your opinion.

    ISTX men, mostly. Few women would percieve say, an INTP as the "strong, silent type".
    And your opinion.

    Anyway, my point was simply that there are both pros and cons to being an NT male, and that there are pros and cons to being an NT female. Arguing as though there are only disadvantages to being an NT male and only advantages to being an NT female is plain dumb. For every time an NT female is admired, she will be called cold and arrogant. For every time an NT male is called a "smartass" he will be called smart. Srsly.


    I will bow out of this thread now.

    ADont know too many INTPs, and dont actively judge people as to their perceived MBII type particularly NTs so it is kinda hard to compare. Feel bit of a paradox in that have been called the strong silent type or aloof by many people who don't know me. Have attended some college classes and gone through the whole semester without hardly talking to anyone except the teacher. (limited to those classes that don't encourage interaction between the students). Some times just shut down verbally and will not talk.

    Am tall and medium build so often I am considered "strong". Also a bit of a rebel in being separate from most group think and that is seen by some as being strong.

    Not naturally good at small talk (although I have mostly overcome this hurdle in my life)

    Not one to be into spectator sports or cults of personality (although am always interested in strategy, systems and tactics, nevertheless find a lot of the emotion and fluff of spectator sports to be off-putting). A NT girl can get away with this prejudice and not have this be an instant rapport killer.

    In general NT females have a harder time with because in social pressure for females tend to be more group oriented in western society. This has pluses as well as minuses but it would personally drive me a little batty.

    Would be more dangerous to be a NT female because I like roaming wherever and with whoever and my size keeps me safe from most physical threats. If I was a woman I think there would be likelihood that I would be raped, physically attacked maybe event killed for roaming on my own in darker more dangerous situations.

    Have been able to turn my "weakness" of being socially inept by appearing to be a social butterfly, an "in between" person, a balance shifter as I appear to get along with all sorts of people. Its not that I want to be social it just a viable alternative to avoid falling into any "clique" which I find rather repulsive (at least as far as most of the "cliques" offered so far.) If forced into a clique have a preference to the anti social clique.

    The irony is that once a person gets to know me I am pretty verbal "about issues I think are important". Most things most people are talking about are not important it just makes them feel a certain way when they are talking about it. Thus if there is an attraction for being strong silent it is usually dispelled.

    There are definitely some men that drool over the icy, aloof women. I don't know how prevalent they are though. And eventually, I think they get tired of it when they see that the woman is always going to be that way and never really "softens."

    INTJ men make pretty good strong, silent types, IMO.

    Of course it's my opinion, what did you expect? Nobody has real statistical data to back up their claims, we're talking about experiences and personal preferences.

    You mean she WON'T change after you marry her? Alleluja!

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    One thing I've wondered is if NT men sometimes masquerade as ST men as a way of fitting in? Especially during the "fit in or be singled out" years of high school?

    I guess that really depends on whether or not they cared to fit in. The ones who did I've noticed put effort into the masquerade; the ones who didn't, didn't. Then in some places the ones who didn't found groups they wouldn't have to act around together.
