    D'awww.

    I don't know that it's possible to have a meaningful opinion about another type's place and progress in the world without also imagining--or discovering--that your opinion is supposed in some sense to be substantial in the world. So, are you sure you want to take over even that much of anyone else's opportunity?

    Answer: yes.

    Actually I like to be in charge of things.

    neither of those involved some megalomaniac dream of changing the world, instead he found his own little niches in his own little world in which he can implement his vision, feel incredibly content about it and move on. yet as small as it might be, by the time he was in his mid 40s, he felt like he has conquered the world, in his own little ways.
    That is exactly right.

    Every INTJ I know looks at their world with an eye to improvement. If any type is especially wired to have a vision and execute it, it's an INTJ.
    Right? Absolutely. Why shouldn't they do what they're designed to do?

    My INTJ said she wanted to be the big fish in her little pond. I know people who have made similar statements but she's one of the few I know that will absolutely make it happen.

    that sentence describes every INTJ i've known so perfectly that it should probably be in their type description.

    Nice idea, but is it possible to trake over the world without doing more than few evil things along the way? And if you are prepared to do them, can you ever be tusted with total power? Is one persons idea of the greater good (See Hot Fuzz) going to fit with everyone elses?
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    Probably not.

    Trusted to wield it effectively? Probably.

    Of course not, which is why we should go with our own. It's better.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    It's very easy really.

    Ni = Loquaciously Lofty

    Te = Efficiently Evil

    The only direction for the INTJ is world domination.
