    I think it's important for making connections and deciding if someone can relate to who I am and how I view life.

    I'm an NF and I do this, it helps with communication.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Intelligence, when I test for it, goes hand-in-hand with the other thing I look for: whether the person is interesting.

    There are plenty of smart people that are as dull as fuck.

    I'm not into that "throw a bunch of opinion and intellect in somebody's face" method of intelligence testing. I don't like it when guys pull that crap on me. I'm not incredibly opinionated - at least, I prefer not to take a definite side in an issue I'm not familiar with - so I hate when I feel like I'm being goaded into taking a side/developing a thorough argument against my will....

They are drawn to complete, deep argumentations and admire people able to keep on agrumentating with them. I feel some NTJness.
    They are more sensitive to the ideas than the way to express them.
    Late to the party one this one. This is one of my favorite topics. I love to learn about and test people, especially potential mates. I am working with a fascinating group of people right now--an understatement. I'm not so sure what INTPs do is all about "intellectual" testing. More like our way of getting to know people. As an ENFP, you should be pretty good at that in your own way. Life is like a giant puzzle for INTPs.

    What do you mean NTJness? I am an INTP with some J; I would say my temperament is icy cool, but definately not stone cold like INTJs. INTJs I have known are often very ridged and inflexible. INTJs are masters of order and like to be in control of everything. INTPs are masters of organization. We are very flexible and don't usually like to control people. I am usually better at expressing my ideas visually than with words.
