Just pointing out the symmetric observation. Neither argument is particularly compelling, except insofar as tert (and inf) are somewhat useful for pointing out blind spots, but the relationship to "open-mindedness" per se is a bit of a stretch. The tert doesn't make one feel or think that one is open-minded or that it is good to be so, but rather points out those areas where, no matter how open minded one really is, one doesn't see the blind spots. Other people upon encountering those blind spots might make an observation of close-mindedness or stubbornness.
W/r to "open mindedness" in general, I have found that regardless of type, those who believe that they themselves are open-minded and chide others for being close-minded tend to bring up the topic on precisely those matters about which they themselves are quite stubbornly resistant to changing their own opinions, and are quite unaware of the unintended irony of their assertions. It's definitely a human foible, kind of like the Dunning-Kruger effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning...3Kruger_effect), where those who are competent tend to underestimate their competence, while those who are incompetent tend to overestimate their competence. Similarly, those who are close-minded tend to overestimate their open-mindedness, while those who are truly open-minded tend to worry whether they're being open-minded enough.
This makes a lot of sense.
And after reading more of this thread I have to agree that INTP is more robotic on the inside (if that is the question the OP is asking).
And I have actually been accused by my INFP cousin many times of being a robot...
This and this.
Tsk tsk tsk. Now I'm gonna summon a horde of INFPs to gang up against you and Rayne.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
INTJs look more robotic just because of that walk and how they look at you and stuff like that. INTPs think more like robots though
Robots dont think They do as they are programmed. They act like the results of thought.
I would think an INTP built robot would be more like a human because of the complexity of logic given to it. Even acting like other personality types as the programming becomes more and more complex. Thought is what gives logic life.
An INTJ robot would mimic the choices of the INTJ
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
