    One of the most open-minded people I know is an ENTJ.

    IMO, it depends on what's at stake: Te or Ti. NTJs can be inflexible regarding the external results (i.e -- what "should" occur), but open-minded about the internal processes necessary to arrive there. Conversely, NTPs are flexible on the results, yet steady-fast on what is considered the "truth".

Switch the tables around, and NTP's are more prone to being meticulous about logical precision. Both types aim to make sense, but in a way the other individual doesn't value, or recognize.
    So, you're saying NTJs care more about soundness, while NTPs care more about validity?

    Interesting...

Many prefer to experiment and fix them as they go.
    So NTJs actually change their opinions if the facts no longer corroborate...?

    And this is close-minded how...?

    In the end, it's a matter of when you want to see how stubborn someone can really be.
    I don't know if I necessarily agree with what Sim says there...

    Just consider how Sim can hold so rigorously to "his model" in the present -- how is that being "flexible now"? And isn't that just an aspect of Ti (at least when wielded in a certain way?)

    I feel the same way about his NTJ-NTP not-understanding-one-another bit that he always reposts.

    I critiqued it a while back, but I'm not sure whether he understood it.

    He's too stuck in his box.

    Agreed.

    So there are open minded and close minded NTJ's and NTP's. Open mindedness has nothing to do with type. If any of the types are naturally inclined to be either open or close minded, I have yet to see arguements for it.
    Along with Lethe's post(s), this was the only one that really dug into the issue in the way I'd been hoping for.

    I very much agree with what you express here wolf, but I don't think it tells the whole story.

    The part it does explain, it explains correctly. But I think there is more.

    Lethe does a pretty good job explaining the other part: that each of us -- NTJs and NTPs -- can be close-minded in our own particular ways.

    Just being a certain type doesn't make one close-minded or open-minded: that much is obvious. There are open and close-minded NTJs and NTPs.

    We can, however, identify how each type is close-minded in different ways (Lethe said that the difference was more temporal, which, I can somewhat understand, but I don't think that really gets to the crux of the issue).

    I certainly think an NTJ can be open-minded in the present, and an NTP close-minded, so... I'm not sure where this explanation gets us...

    Obviously, Lethe's notion and the following one intersect at some point, but I think it would be more useful to focus on the manner in which Ne/Ti and Te/Ni thinking differ in how they can be close-minded, not just the "when" (of course, if she clarifies how this "when" relates to Ti/Ne and Ni/Te differences, then she'd be doing just that *nudge*).

    Aside from that, there's also the obvious "which type is more likely to demonstrate close-minded tendencies", which was kind of the lower-common-denominator impulse to which this thread was aimed, albeit solely in the hope that we might actually get a more fruitful discussion going regarding the above-mentioned topic(s).

    Don't worry, Jag.

    I'm 26, and I got it.

    You're not too old...
