    Something I noticed when I first started reading INTJ blogs was that some of male members would often try to exaggerate the stereotypical traits through their own behavior. For example, one guy would arrogantly jump to a confident conclusion on a topic with minimal data. The antic was almost embarrassing to watch.

    I think these clowns are responsible for a lot of misconceptions about the species.

    Speaking as an INTJ female who eventually would like to have a few kids one day, because I want to get married/pregnant/raise kids, I feel like I'm meeting every stereotypical expectation of me.

    If the expectation is that I'll become an ISFJ mommy: I'll fail.

    I got my grandmother to take the test and turns out she falls into the INTJ world. Wierd thing is that I would have never guessed that. She seems too much like a sweet heart to be the cold hearted bitch that some INTJ's pretend to be. I think that I am going to have to agree with "Not Me" and say that a few retarded INTJ's blew the stereotype out of the water and made us all believe that you were all dead inside.

    Well, considering that I was pretty much the only androgynous-looking female in my grade, I think that's a yes. However, I think I was too busy hugging my graphic calculator to notice (classic math nerd, heh). I believe society in general is much more forgiving than the bunch of stereotypes I went to high school with.

    I think being an INTJ female makes me more misunderstood and others more confused.

    Here are my random thoughts...

    If I was male I would possibly get called bitch, mate and feminist a lot less.
    I also think that people wouldn't be so worried that I don't smile enough/to their liking and not take that to mean I'm not happy but that I'm just not being a typically expressive female. I wouldn't be called cold because I don't cry at funerals - men aren't cold if they don't cry at funerals. My opinions might be more easily accepted. A female challenging a male in front of a group and winning the argument is sometimes frowned upon though some men find a strong minded female attractive. Being an INTJ female might be an advantage in that I get along with men better than other females do and more men climb the career ranks so they may help me up there.

    If females do have a greater need to fit in and be socially accepted than males do then I can see a potential problem there esp. if you take Maslow's hierachy into account. I probably dedicated a lot of time to being accepted in my younger years whilst the male INTJ's were probably more likely to be pursuing some better aligned INTJ activity. Building their skills instead of working on a percieved weakness. Then again I was never really accepted by my family so I had a greater need to be accepted by my peers. As a consequence in my latter years I tend to get along quite well with a very broad range of people which is kinda cool.

    It might be nice to be a bit less shocking and to have some real bonding cos I never REALLY bonded with the females and although I was more like a boy the gender divide meant I never REALLY bonded with them either.

    So yes I do think society expects me to portray myself as more feminine than I AM. Now I'm not so young I tend to exagerate my INTJness and deliberatly use it to push peoples buttons, which is fun. Despite finding some of the things above irritating, at the end of the day I love being a misfit and am attracted to the underdog image. I'm glad I don't feel the need to exert so much effort into being like other females. I have learnt that as long as they can see and feel I understand them they don't care that I am so strange to them. On an end note some people find it hard to believe that my interier is as calm cool and collected as my exterier - people don't believe this is me - now that's annoying. On the other hand for the ones that do get me they don't always believe I am upset when I am because I will just say I'm upset as opposed to acting upset. They may even be jealous as I appear to cruise through life without taking much to heart.

Just walk up to her, put your hand on her shoulder and say "You act so mean sometimes... But I know that you're so much nicer on the inside". If you play it right, all puppy eyes, she should go all teary and shit. That's when you should slap her across the face and say "Sucker!"

    Ha ha . . . that is like the opposite of what I get, which is more like "you act so nice sometimes, but I know you're just a mean witch inside"
