    I think INTJs are just as (if not more) likely to look outside of academia for personal development if they decide that it would be useful to develop non-"nerdy" skills.

    Then again, we're also pretty stubborn, so if an INTJ decided there wasn't any point in doing anything but attending LAN parties and pwning math and physics, then yeah, they'd be nerdier.

    I tried to fit us into boxes, but dammit, it's not happening. I still voted INTP though, nyeh nyeh.

    In my opinion the thing is that intj looks out of academia and intp looks into academia.

    This is because intps develop non nerdy extravert function before intjs, when theyr growing up. Talking about Ne and Te.

    I was making a statement about how there a chance, however small, that all of scientific knowledge as we know it is wrong. Simply because it's well-tested and accepted doesn't mean it's true. Newton and Einstein merely said a few words and wrote down a few things. They are merely two men with some ideas that seem to be credible.

    Skipping forward a few steps in my train of thought, I wouldn't justify science by those who "proved" it, and vice versa. Einstein building off of Newton's ideas is a moot point.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Yep, i bet every scientist learned atleast something from other scientists(or from other people that made some discoveries).

    *sigh*, you people. And on a typology forum too.

    INTJs and INTPs aren't suitably compared by describing what the different T's will do. It should be Ni (backed by Te) vs Ti (backed by Ne). Different ball parks altogether.


    And once you realise Ni is the a priori, conventional social terminology just no longer applies. Other people can apply it. Knock yourselves out.



    Blah blah blah, and Ni is destined to desire to escape from fixed and settled circumstance, so whatever prison you have for the person today, it's not going to be there tomorrow. I'm fwee!

    why don't you just compare the thickness of your glasses... or a good old fashioned drinking contest, whoever hits the ground first in a drunken slop is a big NERD.
