    Well, in one sense, yes, but in another sense, not exactly.

    I didn't want the thread to go in that specific direction, necessarily.

    I just wanted, in general, to develop an intelligent discussion.

    His post just happened to move it in that direction.

    So true on the assigning you motives... whether or not you have those that I see, that I still leave open-ended.



    Regardless, it was not necessarily addressing motives I saw, so much as motives I didn't want developing.

    I think that's what INTJs LOOK more robotic on the surface (you're seeing their T function in the aux position focused externally, and we tend to see extroverted functions more, even in introverts...which is why you also get that surface impression with ISTJs, possibly) ...but if you get to know the INTP, you get more and more into that Ti, which to me as an Fi type, seems very "dry."
    & @Fluffywolf -

    I do agree that INTP / Ti on the inside is very 'dry' and internally, INTP's are more rigid and computer-like; and obviously dom-Ni is not. I also don't think dom-Si is, and don't know why dom-Si would be viewed in a light drastically different than dom-Ni.. at least in terms of this 'robotic' concept.

    I simply think it's a very slanted discussion to keep it restricted to the internal process being what absolutely defines 'robotic-ness'. And to me it's relevant to bring ISTJ/ISTP in the discussion, and I don't understand why the logic would be different for ISTJ/ISTP than for INTJ/INTP.

    Both robots and computers would operate on Ti it's true. Te gathers data and responds to the physical world, like a robot. Te organizes the environment and decides which actions are more logical and efficient.

    Ne gathers data like all the internet users giving information to a computer, and a computer just stays in one place and thinks. Also a computer responds to people (Fe), while a robot is less interactive.

    In general, of course. INTX's would be like a computer-robot hybrid, and atypical INTP's and INTJ's would be their own unique thing.
    Still, the fact remains that regardless of my other cognative functions, my descision making remains true to a certain method that can be best explained as computer like. Where the descision making for INTJ's is largely influenced by a factor that can not be explained as such.

    Hmm, I mean, just because a chicked appears similar to an eagle, doesn't mean it eats mice as well. Just because an INTJ appears robotic and that appearance is caused by his cognative functions, doesn't mean he operates like one. And even though an INTP might not appear like a computer at all, internally his congative processes still have a lot of similarities.

    I understand where you're coming from, but this is basicly my take on it.

    It's not. You see a touch more Se or Ne even in an IxTP, making them APPEAR EXTERNALLY SOFTER (P) ...same principle applies to Fs...like how IxFJs seem to be the "judgers" in terms of social norms or polite behavior or organizing the group...but you get to know an IxFP and prepare to see some personal moral judgements that may make your head spin.

    It just depends probably on your own function order (like Te probably seems "harsher" to Fe types than it does to me, and Ti probably seems drier to me and other Fi types than it does to a Ti type, even an IxFJ with Ti) ...as well as if you are talking about the external appearance and how that person functions or judges or perceives internally.

    External cog functions are also cognition, but we're supposed to agree that we're not supposed to be looking at the external to determine robotic-ness? Why?

    But then there's a lack of consistency, because I don't think it's the dom-Si that makes the ISTJ robotic - in reality I think it's more the Te that defines the robotic-ness (ISFJ wouldn't be viewed as robotic). And incidentally, I'd put ISTJ as more 'robotic' before ISTP. So I do look to the external cog functions more than internal when assessing robotic-ness, and I did look through the whole thread.

    Or is it instead the tertiary Si of INTP that makes them more robotic than INTJ's, and that way we can tie off the fact that both INTP's and ISTJ's are robotic? Still wouldn't solve for ISFJ's NOT being robotic, though....
    I was going to respond to your post Cascadeco, but, yeah, Fluffywolf already covered everything I was thinking of saying.

    Exactly.

But since Zarathustra came with the comparison of INTP's and INTJ's specifically, it stands to reason he means the MBTI differences between those two types on a general level, making it obvious that in this case this thread in particular points to the cognative process differences between those two types. Based on that, INTP's are the more robotic ones.
    Exactly.

Also, I just mentioned ISTP's and ISTJ's because Riva asked if I thought what I said about INTP's and INTJ's would also hold true for ISTP's and ISTJ's, and I just made the point that I think it does not.
    And I agree with this.

    I think he's just saying that Si is more akin to how a "machine brain" would work than is Ni.

    Frankly, I think it's an accurate statement.

    This is exactly my take on it.

    It's why I changed the OP to "this is not about appearance, this is about how they are (i.e., how does their mind actually function)".

    The term robotic means the unthinking functioning of a machine (by the standard definition).

    A robot requires programming and commands from 'without' and functions without *any* original thought.

    The terms robot and robotic do not describe INTP or INTJ.

    Using my old thread:

The words "playfully inquisitive" are never used by other NTs to describe INTJs. When not using their only mode of humor (sarcasm) the INTJ seems intent on taking the stick up their ass and ramming it up everyone else's ass. Fortunately most NTs know how to cover their asses. Watch it! There's one behind you right now!

    INTP "The Whiner"
    Everyone has problems. Most people attempt to rid themselves of those problems at some point. Not the INTP! That would remove the greatest pleasure the INTP has: bitching about their problems on the internet. God forbid the INTP ever actually does anything, just the mere fact they think they could do something is good enough. Little known fact: the "c" in INTPc stands for cheese, to go with the whine.
    I'm going with INTJ (plus years of experience).

    I still think Te = part of how an INTJ's mind actually functions, even though it is an external manifestation of cognition and preference. Do you disagree?

    Because I view Te as a very important aspect of the INTJ, and I place more emphasis on the external aspect/definition of 'robotic' than the internal, I voted INTJ.

    Neither are robotic. INTJs lean towards being E-mo and INTPs, calm.
