    Default The compassionate INTJ ...



    True?

    False?

    Examples?

    Counterexamples?
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    True.

    Sometimes too compassionate, I think (Fi overwhelm), so that the situation isn't exactly helped.

    Examples:

    When a person (I care about) isn't feeling well, I take care of them and will leave my own fun behind to tend to them.
    When I sense that a person is feeling left out I will engage them.

    I am compelled to do these things.

    True.

    I am often perceived as a sarcastic a-hole to those that dont know me very well, but to a select group of people i can be very caring; I would do just about anything for someone i consider to be a TRUE freind (not many of those).
    In addition to this i consider myself to be an "unconventional" humanitarian.

    ...It's quite true. We may be quite compassionate with the one with the problems and talk it through with them in a more caring manner.

    I do this, I always thought it wa an Fe thing.

    Re the OP, yes the INTJ's I know are quite compassionate, though some try to hide it.

    On the other hand I and other INTP's I know, can often be less compassionate than we like to appear/think we are.

    Of course it's true. Compassion is not limited to type.

    I know very few young INTJs.

    My mid thirties INTJs feel deeply but very quietly. But they can be very compassionate to very specific people or causes. But can look very cold on the surface.

    The older INTJs-they often are much more open about this sense of compassion-they care for larger groups of people. There is a sense of mentorship, inspired leadership, devotion to integrity. Like they tangled their Ni visions up with Fi sorta. They use their strength to drive those goals forward in a sense of stewardship. They still have impossible standards, and but are somewhat more accepting of my 80% half hearted efforts than my mid-30s friends.

    I so love my intjs.

    On more than one occasion, I was compassionate in my own horribly analytical problem solving manner.

    I believe everyone should be able to help themselves first. I hate beggers or people who refused to do anything to help themselves. When someone expect handouts I tell them off, especially if they get pissed off....I love it. But, when I think someone cannot help themself at no fault of their own, I am compel to help them.
