    Default INTJ's, conquering the world, why?

    i have noticed that trend, but i still wonder if its all evil selfish, or are there good intjs too? Although ive noticed all tertiary feelers are evil, for intjs case its by being at the top manipulating those beneath.

    Is that behavior\thinking healthy for intj's?
    healthiness is all about appreciating other peoples inferior function. its like the sore spot no one ever notices, but we desperately wish they did, and if you focus on doing that, youll have many friends. and also learn to appreciate your own inferior function, others wont find it stupid if you show them how cool it is.

    INTJ 4w3 Sp Sx. (i dont believe in tritype. i do believe in learning traits from others.)

    mistakes happen. expect them, and grow from them. look for them, and avoid them.

    they do it because they love the world very much, and want to take good care of it. right? well that's what they said.

    It is as much a joke as reality; a charicature that people have fun with. The reality for most INTJs is the only world we want to conquer is our own: our own time, work, living space, knowledge base, etc We want autonomy in all we do, which involves some tailoring of the environment to bring that about in many cases. Of course we do have visions and make plans and implement them, often with great success, but that involves improving, enhancing, and problem-solving more than conquering. We really don't want to be in charge of things (we're introverts, after all), we just want them to be better than they are.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    A question of great importance is what you intend to do with that ultimate control. For example, if you were to shine a new dawn of universal enlightenment upon the world, it could lead to world peace, and a greater light to guide our ways towards the top of the mountain. In use of such altruism, world domination could indeed be a noble goal.

    Of course, there is also the evil and more selfish side as well, but at least the man in charge is more likely to make wise decisions for the betterment of humanity than the regular people would themselves, even if the means of its achievement is more controversial.

    They talk a big talk, but it amounts to nothing more than most people's big talk. Most who do this are barely out of adolescence. Just concentrate on learning how to control yourself and leave the world domination talk for your gullible friends.

    The above quote is why even if what these people talk about seems great and impossible, to direct one's life towards such an objective, even if not of immediate production or importance, may in the end shape our very destinies, as those who come can build upon the foundation greater monuments in an ever evolving construction, in the end possibly proving to be a triumphal success.

    I used to plan on conquering the world, then I took an arrow in the knee but now I'm just planning to write a book series where the plot is world domination.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    usually it's less "conquering the world" and more "conquering a tiny little corner of their own tiny little world".

    a good example for an INTJ doing so might be my father:
    • he was quite content in having transformed the way Israeli timeshare businesses operate by catering for local market needs and thus creating an economic opening for local companies to compete with the larger international ones coming in. he looked at it, his vision was implemented, smiled, and sold it.
    • before that he was working in a high school, until he was very happy in having transformed the way the science and technology has being taught in that school, opening whole new departments, and created a local program for helping kids overcome difficulty in math in their own pace. when he felt his job was done, he went onto look for the next thing he wanted to do (figuring out how he can combine his love of travel with business).
    • apparently he did something similar in some kind of airforce program which he was very proud of and yet never share the details, but all of his old army buddies thought he's a freaking genius.


    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.

    so youre saying my plans to become the most emotionally expressive musician (thus the bethoven of my own time) .. _And_ a voice actor who has his voice starring in the popular video games isnt in vain? Nice to know, nice to know..

    I think ive already proven my potential for such achievements, maybe its time to actually start acting towards them?

    Hm yeah, theres certainly some huge arrogance in Ni function, INJ's aiming for great achievements and ENJ's just that, arrogant.
