Forced to live in an unsatisfying, irrational world full of people clearly less intelligent and less deserving of happiness than themselves, the typical INTJ will kill a puppy or two every other weekend as a way to relieve stress.
... or is that... just me?...

Generally, yeah And I'm saying this without shifting blame onto others, or saying other INTJ's are like this. I, myself, am. Many of the INTJ posters here I find quite admirable, and in many ways I find them to be more mature or balanced than myself.
I often get annoyed with myself in how self-absorbed and how much of a solipsist I can be, and often it is in a somewhat boring and unexciting way, at least from a 3rd person perspective. I know we INTJ's can have this ability to zap enthusiasm for things, or analyze all the intrigue away, or make it boring (I sure can...) It's actually a relatively common feeling for me to feel insufferable and annoying. I talk about myself way too much (as can be seen...) and sometimes I can't think of anything to discuss outside my (admittedly self-intentioned/solipsist) field of interests. And I often feel the need to maintain some competent facade, and I erect many layers of walls and barriers to keep people from knowing me. I'm often actually surprised my friends are actually friends with me, since they often strike me as better people than myself.
So, yeah. There are actually some things I could perhaps relate to type, that I'm not so crazy about. I'm not a huge fan of the whole social thing being my Achilles heel. I recognize my responsibility over it, but so often there's this lame dualistic division between my inner world and the world outside, and it's hard to breach the divide, or meaningfully express myself. Let alone actually compromise on some of my internally held standards/ideals! It's naturally easier for me to self-isolate and daydream than it is for me to meaningfully connect with others, and live in the moment/reality. This strikes me as running contrary to my attainment of happiness/ social satisfaction. And it does honestly scare me, when I think it's very likely I could die alone/lonely, if I don't fix some of these tendencies.
And, yeah, I'm not trying to sound all pitiful or modest or anything... I think it's possible many INTJ's may sort of feel similarly, but haven't become comfortable with recognizing weakness within themselves. I actually sort of have an inferiority complex, and I think it's more constructive for me to be aware of/accepting of these feelings, since they tend to make me more genuine.
thank you sincerely.
im happy to know that im not loosing my mind.
currently im in the process of revisiting my whole point of view about my self.
