    It doesn't help much though.

    Hmm...

    I don't think many people pretend to be INTJs, they just pretend to be cold and bad ass.
    Thats pretty much it....faux gangstas.

    They could just as easily apply to an übernerd or even someone like Holden Caufield.
    people think Holden Caufield is a bad ass.

    I don't think INTJs are bad ass, I'm trying to explain to you why people do.

    Holden Caufield is not a badass. People who think he's a badass obviously did not understand the book at all.

    I guess it makes sense from the descriptions, that by going solely by those, it would sound like they're pretty badass, but when one sees how these traits fit into an actual person rather than just an image (such as, badassery), they don't really look badass at all.

    In my opinion, INTJ's appear stand-offish a lot (particularly younger ones) for the same reason that many counter cultures appear/act the way that they do. They have an inherent fear of whatever they can't prepare for, so they act preemptively by trying to ward off any threat. It's easier to appear intimidating than to try to win over everyone socially. See Enneagram Type 5. It's when they finally realize that eventhough it doesn't feel like it, they are more prepared than 95% of the population...so they begin to act on instinct without preparation and they begin to ascend to Type 8 traits and become more comfortable with themselves and their self expression.

    Personaly, I see that most people think Intj's are badass...I went to a private school, that was packed with them (intj's), and people in the outside community thought all of us were cool. We gave short answers, we had dry humor, we made a lot of people look like fools...In a society where "Mtv kids" are all too common...people are starting to give Intj's a little credit.
