1. I personally smoke
2. I don't personally smoke; it doesn't bother me when others do, though
3. Smokers are either really stupid or really unsure of themselves and do it to look cool
I don't smoke;
I don't like smokers in general... however, it doesn't bother me significantly until it's in a confined space with a lot of smokers. That is to say that if given a choice of going out to a smoking/non-smoking place, I would rather go alone to a non-smoking place than with a smoking friend to a smoking place. Likewise, I would rather spend time with the non-smoker in a situation where the smoker would be smoking.
I think smokers are irrational... But I think we all are to some degree. That's just an observation and doesn't carry over to other parts of their character.
I didn't vote because none really reflect how I feel.
that whether or not you do and how you feel about it when others do has nothing to do with MBTI.
so, basically, my answer is a question, why are you asking NTs specifically?
I wouldn't agree with this entirely - there are different views on things that tend to correlate to MBTI/other models. They can be social, political or economic... I'd be curious how other NTs view smoking, for example, because I've heard both sides of the argument from a lot of people... and there does seem to be some connection to the T part at the very least.
The third response, technically, doesn't distinguish between smokers and non-smokers. And it might read "thought at one time that they looked cool."
If there is anything to introverted feeling's catalyzing a visceral reaction, it's been in my response to smoking since about age three. The habit disgusts me, and I've worked hard to sublimate, into acknowledgment of the addictive properties of nicotine, the cross between contempt and lurid fascination I used to feel for smokers.
Frankly, smokers are rarer these days. I know one definite INTP who is a smoker; another who claimed to be an INTP but in hindsight could have been an ISTP or INFP. Both, last time I checked, were simply resigned to the practice.
