Well, I'm not sure what I've done lately to earn that title, but you're certainly entitled to your opinion.
Don't do that... tell him to buggar off and stop being so judgemental
Ok if I have an issue with a situation, I will explore several motives for that person behaving in that way - kind of like exploring possible jigsaw peices... I will turn out more and more peices until I find the peice that fits the best, which rings true with my intuition... with people there is never a true answers, but better or worse answer
If Newton was an INTJ he definitly used induction after the apple fell on his head .
There is that neverending discussion, if induction at all is possible. It's like the big box that falls into smaller and smaller and smaller boxes thing or cause and effect. Therefore critics say at some point you have to be deductive to be inductive at all, cause theory or the abstract is nothing you can empirically experience.
Therefore the question remains, does induction exist at all ? Or do we watch to much mystery shows ?
"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
The difference usually is that the xNTJ requires more evidence to get to the right answer, while the xNTP isn't as precise in getting to the right answer, even if the gist of it has been understood more quickly.
I am very much a user of deductive reasoning. I think of everything in terms of if and then. I tend not to make definitive claims about anything; rather, i put things in terms of "if one takes these things as truths, then these things must also be true." The nature of deductive reasoning is not to make any judgement about something else, but to explore the relationships between assumed truths.
I am very much a user of inductive reasoning. Every time I hop out of bed I assume the ground will exert a normal force upon the soles of my feet, thus negating the downward force due to gravity. I never worry about falling through the floor (not breaking the floor, falling through it). I feel this way because every time I have hopped out of bed in the past, it has exerted this normal force. The nature of inductive reasoning is to make judgements about the environment to more efficiently and effectively utilize resources.
This being said, I would challenge any NTJ to match my ability to deductively reason.
