    Agreed. My choice of profession and work enviroment goes a long way to mitigate this sort of distraction, but then it comes out all the more starkly in other settings. The older I get, the less willing I am to bother with such situations/people. This would be contradictory to theories of type which suggest we get better and more comfortable with our less preferred functions as we get older.

    Out of curiosity, have any of you tried to prove your abilities (or, as I see it, assert you dominance) throughout school by getting the best marks in the class (especially in classes such as science (in the general sense))? Just curious if my INTJs case is singular or quite common.

    I didn't. I was the classic B+ student who didn't work that hard for As. I'm sure that if I judged my worth on grades, I would have done much better.

    I always tried to do as well as possible in school, but more to prove my abilities to myself than to prove anything to others. Marks alone were never enough, though. I had to do projects and reports up to my own standards, which were often more demanding than the actual assignments, and be productive at my chosen hobbies and extracurricular activities. This was motivated more by the desire to gain useful knowledge and develop useful skills than any desire to show up others, though perhaps it had that side effect.

    So I see this is a case which does not hold true for others. Thank you.

    I have 2 friends I suspect are INTJ that I know personally and they are alright. I have seen an abnormal amount of INTJ on the internet compared to the population surveys per type that I have read. I was curious if it might be due to people exploiting certain fad diets or chemical substances for intellectual performance. Lets say for example a laxative that would flush out the serotonin and increase ghrelin levels or perhaps a Ritalin cocktail of sorts?

    Also of interesting note I have read reports of PTSD (shellshock) victims testing as INTP and ISTP during analysis.

    I'm an Intj, I agree with this in general.

    i struggle communicating, don't know how I come across, sometimes indecisive. Though only on occasion, and am terribly critical. Which I attribute to a habit of mine. Everyone always says "Ask "Why?"" I say "Ask "Why not?""
    So instead of asking "Why are you like this?" I'll think "Why aren't you like something else, why don't you do this? Why not do something else, if it is more effecient, and gets things done?" In a way it really really helps me, since Intj's are naturals at finding faults. So maybe try it out for a while, it really speeds up the thinking process sometimes:p I just need to curb being so judgmental.
