Hey! This is suppose to be the "INTJ Hater's" thread.
I don't think a lot of INTJs see it that way. If they did then they wouldn't be so insistent on never appearing wrong, at least in their own minds.By taking something like fallibleness in people in that light the emotional response of feeling bad about it is much less powerful and you are less likely to have the negative effects from your initial failure.
That is an interesting way to put it. Although, it isn't "if" a person controls perspective, but "how" they control it. Everyone has the capacity to control their perspective, but I notice many INTJs twist their perspective to preserve their ego, which seems to often put them on the verge of psychosis, if not narcissistically delusional.All perspective is, is the distortion that comes into effect when your brain examines things. Without it personality wouldn't exist and being able to understand it and control it is a huge advantage in my opinion.
Ah, but the question is if that is how you actually behave. If you are actually continually aiming to never be wrong, but you believe that you are always "correcting yourself and taking failure as a strength over a weakness," then you are indeed living in a distorted reality. It is often the case with INTJs, that they genuinely believe that they are acting one way, when in reality they are acting another. They believe they are "correcting themselves" when in reality, they are actually aiming to never be wrong. However, I don't know enough about you to say if that is true in your case.Though being INTJ I must just be distorting my own perspective (which is the result of natural distortion) into thinking you can benefit by correcting yourself and taking failure as a strength over a weakness.
That is true. Of course, the problem with many INTJs isn't "acknowledging mistakes" but realizing they are making them. If they are behaving one way, but continually shifting reality in their mind so they believe they are behaving another way, then they will never realize that they are even making mistakes. If they don't realize they make them, then they can never acknowledge them. Hence, it can be a waltz with psychosis.Though of course your opinion comes from the idea of people not acknowledging their mistakes in the first place. Which if it is the case of course they can't use their own fallibility to their advantage.
