We could... I for one will enforce the stereotypes we are percieved as having. It makes not having them seem even more drastic when they realize they've been wrong about us having them for quite some time. All part of the bigger plan.
I wonder if any of the other 15 personality types would have patronized this thread for 36 pages. Probably not. Come to think of it, would there have been another thread? Is there any other personality type that's more fun to hate on? hahaha And there are certain people on here who have none of the proclivities associated with being a prototypical INTJ. If you are one of those people, my apologies.
Oh, and you're right about my punctuation, sentence structure errors, of course. I'm just using lazy, online, short hand.
My mom taught Latin for 23 years, and she's the head administrator of the highest performing high school in Texas. Sure, I got a seventy in her class - because I was always just dicking around with my friends and making a joke out of her class and the dead language - but that's beside the point. The point is that I am know a good, sentence, structure (when) I want to.
It's not like I'm expounding for an entry level Oxford essay. It's typology central. lol
You have a done an excellent job of describing what I mean by emotional. They can use logic but the base becomes all emotionally charged. They are so rigid and dismissive that their minds become narrow. and they take it very personally that people don't share their vision.
I have perceived this in the INTJs I know in two ways:
1) More an unconscious response to trying to force them to take in new data when they have already formed an Ni construct and are in Te deployment. Z has comments somewhere that directly address this...Let me find for you...It seems less personal and more simply an effort to keep the vision narrow-but exceptionally implementable.
2) When you have pissed them off though, they can become cruel. This is bad.
