I have a question about INTP's and authority. I read, frequently, that INTP's tend to dismiss it, rebel against it, overturn it, and so on.
As a potential INTP, I've noticed that I have this pattern where I deeply desire some source of authority, to be in contact with some individual or institution that has everything figured out, and so I gravitate towards religion, or philosophers, or even other such social establishments as the military, but never affirm or become part of them because of realizing how imperfect, flawed, or irrational they are. Such fictive scenarios as Good VS Evil exemplified in books like LOTR or Star Wars are extremely appealing, but only because the author is basically a god and has conferred unequivocal "rightness" to one side over the other.
Can any INTP's relate, or do you all chafe at the notion of some absolutely correct being, institution, etc? We're assuming that the being IS right, as far as the system of the constructed world is concerned.
Of course, entirely hypothetical, unless you're religious, I guess?
