Let me first start out by saying that when I come to a decision/opinion, it is after a long period of time--thinking, researching, pondering, observing. The decisions I come to are well thought out, and reasoned. I am open to new information, and will adjust my opinion as it seems merited by me, but I do not speak as though I've concluded anything until I have.
My husband is an INTJ and spews opinions and decisions like a box of varied fruit fruit popsicles. One day he decides we should retake the Bar exams and move to NC. We look at houses online and rebudget to save for taking the exams. The next day, no, we'll stay here. Then he's decided to move to Montana (???). Oh wait--gotta take the Bar there too... nah.
He decides Obama will initiate Armegeddon. He will probably be elected, but it will be the end of the world. He will vote for McCain. Then he hears about McCain divorcing his wife after she becomes disabled in a car accident (and after she waited six years while he was in a POW camp) and feels he is disloyal, but still the best choice. Fast forward a few months... Now he loves Obama and hates McCain...
Do INTJs just think outloud in declarative phrases? How do can one tell when they are serious??
