    Thats pretty much exactly what i said. What i didnt say was the part that Te has in executing the drives that Fi gives and Ni shapes into ideal image.

    This is how I see INTJs too however all intuitives are idealistic. The difference between NTJs' and NTPs' idealism is that the Ni-Fi leads to internalisation and attachment to ideals and Ne-Fe leads to depersonalisation of ideals which is explains why NTPs are less cynical.
