    Or it could be that given the fact their cognitive processes are so similar, there is not enough of a variety for a strong disagreement.

    But the CPs are just that--processes. Life experience and personal uniqueness would mean they can be vastly different. It just means they'll chug through the info in the same manner. It doesn't have anything to do with values/etc.

    INTJ forum is better than here, you make a post here and someone may make a post back an hour later, or even worse. At the INTJ forum at least you get quick responses, and I honestly don't see how it's so much less interesting than here. If you don't like the threads, create a new interesting one.

    Just because you get more immediate responses doesn't say anything for the quality of those posts -- and just because a thread has an interesting premise doesn't mean that it's going to have interesting responses.

    What leads you to believe that there are more quality posts here as opposed to the INTJ forum? I think this forum would be much better if people posted more often, I really don't notice the quality difference either. There are some better sections here than there are at the INTJ, but again they are so slow.

    Yes, I think that's where you're going.

    The INTJ's on the forum, while they are the same personality type, do have very diverse views, and do get into a lot of arguments. But the agreement and "ego-stroking" (not sure what you are referring to) are probably just the result of the INTJ's appreciating that the other INTJ's are thinking in the same way. In the debates I have had on the forum, I have of course had major disagreements in terms of fundamental stances, but I have usual seen that the other INTJ has thought something through rationally, and is actively thinking about my arguments, presenting well-conceived responses. That results in a large number of "respectful disagreements," relatively untainted by emotional reactions.

    What causes your "disappointment" with the forum? Do you think it's much better here? I don't see much a difference, except that INTJ Forum has a faster server and a bit more traffic.

    I guess I feel pretty at home there. It is something of a "comfort zone," where the people tend to think the way I do, avoiding absolutely foreign opinions. They have good insights, presented in ways that make sense to me, and I find the selection of threads suits me quite well.
    I think of MBTI Central as the "lab," or something like that. I come here to get fresh opinions, and see what the other types think. It is a bit less inviting (though perhaps that is just because I am not very used to it), but it is also a nice change of pace if I am especially curious about the perspective of another type.

    This is what doesn't quite sit right with me. INTJ defines a process of thought rather than what people think. The fact that it avoids 'absolutely foreign opinions' just doesn't seem right for INTJs.

    There seems to be a slight undertone of fear of disagreement. I get the feeling that no one wants to disagree, or come on too radical in fear of being called out as "not an INTJ". I find that I get the most sincere opinions on issues at MBTIc. On INTJf the members seem to filter all of their opinions on "What the stereotypical INTJ should say". I have little interest into the facade of "INTJness" conformity that goes on there.

    My wording there is easily taken out of context. I am referring to "opinions" that consist of the thought process, such as an insistence on lots of socialization, or a high level of emotion pumped into debates. The "absolutely foreign" things are those things that are directly caused by thought processes that are drastically different from those of an INTJ.

    i actually get along pretty well with INTJ's (but i'm INFJ, so very compatible especially on tech issues, my fave)

    i actually know an INTJ in person, and him and i are always talking about one tech issue or another... or i'm trying to talk neuropsychology to him...

    anyways, we get along great and i also like the intjforum because of it

    so thought provoking


    you know, i was on a forum started for intros, but it has degressed into nothing but a constant flying flamewar complete with the schoolyard bullies who insult in pacts... none of the thought provoking questions of intj, but just insults and crap...

    like "so-and-so is an @sshole so here's a thread about him/her"


    ah, screw that mess
