    I suspect that there are a multitude of reasons why INTJs are treated negatively. For example, INTJs are a bit of an Internet meme at this point, which consequently means that their portrait to the uneducated is of the exemplary traits hyperbolized, often in a negative light. Those who lack skepticism, or just don't care to know better, will hold this stereotypical image in their mind and will judge INTJs with it. Also, it's easier to judge people by their affiliated group than by their merit, so those who, again, don't care to learn about the type or just want to get someone's knickers in a twist will go on making ungrounded assumptions and accusations. This general hate is through emotional thinking that lacks any maturity or rationale.

    That's one reason I could think up of, anyways. There's also people scapegoating, being too lazy to analyze someone individually ("This person must be an INTJ, that's how they all act!"), etc, etc. Not very respectable actions in my eyes, and clearly not in other's either.

    Funny.

    What's funny about it?

    If you were to interact with INTJs in real life, you'd likely have no clue what they were thinking on the inside. INTJs wear a poker face, much like ISTJs.

    It's only when you start getting to know INTJs that you see another side to them. I think I'll call it pathos. I think aggression is too strong of a word and not entirely accurate.

    You are confusing being private with being passive. INTJs activeness is seen in our actions much moreso than in our words.
    A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
    A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, and a word that shall echo for evermore!
    For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, through all our history, to the last,
    In the hour of darkness and peril and need, the people will waken and listen to hear

    -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I am one and I'm in no way passive. Neither are any of the other INTJ's or ISTJ's that I've met. They may act uninterested or like they aren't paying attention. Likely because they're uninterested and no longer paying attention.

    Active/passive is much better indicated by Enneagram type, not MBTI. A type 8 INTJ is going to be rather different than a type 9 INTJ.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Because njs in general are not straight forward people
    In order for society to survive, we must all pitch in and cooperate with one another, split the resources fairly.
    If we get greedy, everything will fall apart
    The main reason why there is no long peace is because everything is set and stone.
    Another is that resources are limited and the ones who had the most goes bad because they are in control.

    D'rrrat (rolls 'r'). You beat me to it. As usual.

    Incidentally, regarding your quote from @whatever -- history is a series of people fighting over which anecdotes to use; and then fighting over who gets to write the account of *that* fight (repeat ad nauseum).

    Mostly, I was addressing this quote...

    No. INTJs, like ISTJs, are extremely passive people.
    Extremely passive people? None of them I know are. Coriolis is a 5, does she seem extremely passive to you? I place more emphasis on enneagram for the most part, because it helps polish and refine MBTI type. I just don't see any of them as extremely passive, regardless of enneagram.
