    Couldn't this question be answered with "Yes, if it were fact."? If they can't except this they are either 1. Stressed, or 2. Not NT. Facts are irrefutable.

    But the real question is, are NTs intelligent by definition, and the answer is no--there is no reason to regard them as intelligent by definition. Does that answer the thread question?

    Apparently they were hired because "they're reliable, intelligent, hard-workers". To me, that's all that matters as it relates to mcb's issues and her reasons for starting this thread.

    That she really has no idea what their real type is, kind of loses the meaning and thrust of the thread itself. It's fine that she's frustrated with coworkers. Had she not targeted the "intelligence" of NTs, I would have responded in a different way suggesting methods to help her manage.

    And anyways, its kind of silly to suggest that all NTs react the same way in work situations. Take entropie, Jennifer, InvisibleJim and myself. ENTP, INTP, INTJ and ENTJ, respectively. Can you see the difference? I most certainly can.

    As far as assumption of intelligence in NTs, NTs are more likely to score higher on standardised IQ tests since many of the measures, are strengths of NTs. Now to suggest that every NT is intelligent as defined by standardised IQ tests, would be inaccurate. So then we move onto whether or not standardised IQ tests encompass universal understanding and agreement in what defines intelligence. And the answer to that is that human beings can't even agree on the definition of "belief" so what makes anyone believe that we can all agree on the definition of "intelligence".

    I said my *employees* were intelligent. Not all of NT humanity.

    And I'm out of here. This is a waste of time. Whether you have better things to do than nitpick and overanalyze some stranger on the internet or not, I don't care. Knock yourself out.

    Yes you'd be surprised at how many INTJs are insufferable and how many ISTJs are perfectly lovable.
