    You wouldn't happen to operate a corporate think tank I could come "work at," would you? Then I'd feel lucky.

    Yes I do... @ "Uni-Force". We are currently implementing your brilliant concepts into world domination. Unfortunately, the irony is we actually enslave you in the process. Should have consulted a trusted INTJ before releasing such classified information....would have pointed out such a possible scenario.

    Jung actually said in his work that Darwin was an Extraverted Thinking type, and proposed Kant as an example of the Introverted Thinking type. For some reason, those were the only two examples he gave.

But suppose a Cuvier be contrasted with a Nietzsche: the antithesis becomes even sharper.

    I've never found any type to be boring in total. My INTJ friend is usually quite interesting to talk to as he's often got an innovative look on things. I think it's more to do with how private the person is and whether they'll open up to you.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Possibility vs. Practicality.

    Reality is boring. Possibilities are endlessly engaging, provoking, interesting. So there you have it!

    I dunno...while I agree that INTP's seem to talk about a lot more subjects and toss ideas around, I wouldn't call the INTJ boring. They tend to be focussed on a limited amount of subjects though, and be very very knowledgable about them. Also, when it comes to humor, INTP are good, but INTJ's just rule Theirs is extra dry, I find *grin*

    INTJs are built for speed. INFJs too.

    You slowpoke XPs make do with breadth and depth.

    As such, I suppose, INTJs are there to be utilised, not to be actual human beings.

    It's a curse.

    I blame Ayn Rand.

    I think IxxJ's can sometimes be perceived as boring. It's that combination of being introverted and J driven. We're internally driven and so focused on what we're trying to do, we sometimes appear uninteresting. But take us out of our comfort zones and you'll find something interesting, I guarantee it.

    Great thread.

    If you're into the same subjects as an INTJ, they are definitely nice to have around. I wouldn't really call them boring, but I see how through some lenses they can be viewed like that.

    The area where some INTJs seem to fail is: recreation.
