Who doesn't just jump to conclusions, assume false things or react irrationally?
The really nasty thing with NTs (at least with me), is that I'm trying to cover it up, especially to myself! Trying to find a logical sounding explanation for an irrational decision, thereby upping the ante instead of just accepting the loss when it isn't a question of "your're being irrational" yet...
Most recent case. Hubby asks "would your parents be okay if we arrive earlier than planned?" I was writing and I was REALLY immersed in the story, that's why I didn't answer. He was miffed because he wanted an answer, even if it was the honest "I don't know". Cue to a half hour discussion about why it would be logical to assume that "would your parents be okay..." was not a question directed at me!!
Argh, if I just had asked what time it was, or telling that I didn't know, I would have had half an hour more to write! Or just saying sorry when he called me out on it and then answering the question, instead of trying to explain my behavior. I'm so angry with myself.
Got questions? Ask an ENTP!

In fact, we NTs hold a monopoly on logical thinking. The other types use a pseudo-logic that is either compromised by feelings or an overall lack of ability to systematize.

A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
