    Neither of my parents are NTs. One is ISFJ and the other is (I suspect) ISTP. My sisters are all NFs. The only one I remotely understand used to be the ISTP, the rest I just enjoy their company because I love them, even though THEY are weird. (Not me!)

    There are a whole lot of NT's where I work... but its a small software company. Seems like good congregation ground. Lots of liberty to think on their own and apply their creations, lots of other INT's lurking around just all wanting to be left alone to do their work in peace... and when one of us breaks loose acting like a nut, the others are happy to join in. We feel such... such comraderie! *sniff* Its like, a big circus of social retards!!



    I think the breakdown here (in 20 people) is:

    INTPs - 4
    INTJs - 4 (and one suspected INTJ who is too smart to be tricked into testing)
    ISTP - 1
    INFJ - 1
    INFP - 1
    ISTJ - 1
    ENFJ - 1

    Not sure about the remaining folks.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    The good thing to do is to have children with an ISFJ or someone of a similar type that will take great pleasure to rearing them so INTx parents can have their quiet.
    Then, if one of the kids turns out to be INTx, then the INTx parent can help bring it up.
    Otherwise, well, other kids can be good too, and the ISFJ parent will love them anyway.

    Of course ideally, the greater the number of INTx, an INTx parent could lead their non INTx child to suicide before having children by being the uncaring person they can easily be.
    But I think this kind of cruelty is foreign to all types of humans, even NTs.

    I'd like to buy some INTJ sperm, so that I can shun my child with cold indifference.

    I work in an academic (science) setting, and I (from my personal observation and a few known typings) see a LOT of INTJ/INTPs. Like a good 1/3 of the people I might see today. Actually more INTP than INTJ, or maybe that's sample bias because I hang out with the slackers. There are plenty of sensors in science too, and it's easy to pick them out just because their problems with the way science is done (No one is doing the correct statistics! Who messed up my laser/PCR machine!) is very different from the N's (Everyone does small, meaningless, incremental science!). There is a small proportion of NF as well. But I think in science there are a lot of INT, so that would naturally make them more deficient elsewhere?

    Of course I can also answer the basic question by saying we're more evolved - away from the emotion-driven animal brain towards a higher rational brain. But that's just not nice, and I have no proof.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    I honestly think this is brilliant, as long as the plan works out that way.

    I'll take care of the rejects if I'm part of the process that makes them.

    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.

    Maybe some INT's have (a) legit reason(s) for not wanting any children (like me)!

    I don't want children - I'm not even sure if I ever want a husband! - b/c I want to live for myself. I don't want to compromise my freedom for anyone. Children (and possibly a husband) will probably get in my way. What if one day I get this random urge to travel around the world (not altogether likely, but this is only hypothetical)?

    Oh yeah, I ABHOR house chores (and routines in general) too.

    Same here, hence why it's good to have a partner to do it in our place (of course you'd have to do some stuff in return, but I am sure there can be compromises).
