    Default NT's, arguments and attitude to other NT's in debate

    Would you protect some other NT at any cost in an argument the person is in? Even how good friends you are with said person? One scenario being they are not completely right in their reasoning.

    Do you feel the need to protect other NTs, that might be friends/might not be, that are being criticized or being unfairly put on the spot? This does not include the need to tell the person putting them on the spot how illogical their criticism is. But it does include criticism that are decently fair, but a bit harsh in its wording.

    No, I wouldn't protect any type from decently fair criticism. I'll even let criticism that's "a bit harsh in its wording" slide if it's decently fair.

    How would you defend someone from fair criticism?

    No, if someone is off-base (myself included), that person should be called out on it, if we're having a relevant discourse. I mean, there are many ways to disagree with someone that don't include being a jerk - and type should make no difference.

    I'd let anyone get blasted as much as they deserved. I'm more likely to intervene if it goes across the line.

    Nope, NTs get the full force of my own NTishness. I know they can handle it, and would be insulted if I held back.

    No, I primarily go on issues and the principles I believe in, not the mbti type of the people involved. I'm sure a lot of the people I've clashed with in my life have been NT's.

    So you wouldnt go in "sidekick mode" to an NT? What if they where wronged, would you then tell off the person that wrong them? Would you help them, even if they where what you consider your friends?

    It depends on the concrete situation. If my friend is wronged then I'll help him I guess, whether or not he's an NT. Otherwise I might try and mediate the situation if I think there's been a misunderstanding. It depends...are you thinking of a specific case here?

    Depends. If they're right, you point that out. If not, let them deal with it.

    I'm not really sure why I would want to defend anybody based on their MBTI type alone. If they're wrong they need to be criticised, if they're write however, I will voice my support.
