Yesterday I read something on INTPc that made me sick.
"Do you ever get bored with them? My friend made a good point when he said once you have analyzed someone enough, there isn't much new to be offered there. I think he is also an INTP and would rather talk to strangers for the sake of fresh perspective then people he already knows. I can't help but agree. What do you think?"
This indignation by an anonymous INFP could not be any more pertinent.
"INTP and ENTP are my least favorite types -- I don't even like to be in the same room with these people. They seem to enjoy constant conflict. I've had several as close friends for a time, but when my intellectual appeal wore off they got nasty. From my experience, they are amoral, sadistic, colorless in personality with no concept of empathy. They seem like poorly designed simulacra of a human, inverted into constant self-worship. Their single-minded goal of 'appearing right' seems impossibly empty to me, not to mention dull and draining."
Its almost like the NTPs depicted above see no distinction between ideas scrutinized to their impersonal end and individuals. Or they see people as no more than entities to manipulate around in their system.
I am afraid I cannot respect such an approach.
Have you had similar experiences with such NTPs?
Introverted Judgment, if had not found a higher purpose will be radically ego-centric. If the NTP does not discover an internal higher purpose to commit to. He will turn inwards anyways, as Introverted Judgment cannot go anywhere else, thus there will be nothing to find but his own ego. Thus, self-apotheosis is nearly an inevitable consequence of a malfunctioning Introverted Judgment.
So, this, it seems to me, is what that INFP was getting at here...
"They seem like poorly designed simulacra of a human, inverted into constant self-worship. "
I think healthy NTPs will not have their ethic orient around their ego and will very much be willing to commit to principles bigger than themselves.
