    You made a very interesting post and said some very inspiring things, but I disagree with one of your fundamental analytical points. Let me begin by contextualizing this. Suppose there is a chessplayer and there is a chessmaster teaching the chessplayer. Let's say the objective is to make the chessplayer the best he or she can be. One approach is to reveal the weaknesses and build on them. Another approach is to build on the chessplayers strength.

    Your philosophy seems to be predicated on strengthening weaknesses whereas I think one should always play to their strength. If one is a boxer, and you're fast but fighting someone more powerful does the trainer tell (in between rounds) to sit down and unload more powerful punches. No, he will say use your speed because that is the boxers strength. Is Mayweather going to stand still and trade with De La Hoya? No, he's going to punch and move and use his footwork and agility (his strength). In matters of warfare, whether it's physical, intellectual, or psychological warfare one ought to play to their strength and focus on refining their strength rather than strengthening their weaknesses.

    Naesala: Oh no, that I could never do. You see, humans are essential to the fulfillment of my ambitions.

    Reyson: You've changed, Naesala. If this is the path you've chosen, I've nothing left to say.

    The good thing about iNTj's is, you can say you hate them and you do not have to feel any guilt about it.

    Agreed that it would be too difficult to turn weaknesses into strengths... but such does not mean that weaknesses should not be identified so that you're at least aware of them. If you can't take the hits, move and don't get hit. You wouldn't think to move so much unless you know that you can't take punches very well.

    The difference between a specialist and a well-rounded individual... I guess times have changed... the Renaissance man is a rare breed nowadays. People aren't trained in the same way anymore... Like those thoroughbred race horses... a pity.

    You may even get some respect for your honesty.

    But as a mere earthling you would be pitied for your inability to harness your emotions. And they'd use it to their advantage at a later date

    Exactly. I'd laugh in amusement. Double so, if we knew each other.

    *skims thread*

    So, basically, this thread devolved into actual discussion?

    INTJs ruin everything. Seriously, you guys are like humour vacuums. Just sucking the fun out of everything.

    An INTJ may realize that they said something wrong and be so embarassed that they desperately try to save face by pretending that it wasn't a mistake. Even though they knew it was wrong, well, to a lot of INTJs being wrong is something that leads to a lot of torment -- a lot of friends and family exploiting the fact that they were wrong once, showing it off as a badge of honor. They know they're wrong and they don't want to be reminded of it.

    Still a personality flaw (maybe if they didn't try to cover up mistakes so much like this, people wouldn't feel like they could exploit this as weakness?), but not quite the the one you're thinking of.
    Ha! My brother and I tease my mum unmercifully when she makes a mistake. You should see her squirm! It's the only time you will see her flustered. But it's really a compliment because she isn't often wrong, so we take advantage of it when we can .
