    both of my parents are NT's so I am quite qualified in this area.

    1. they are warm and fuzzy on the outside and cold and hard on the inside
    2. tell you you are too sensitive if you feel anything
    3. they make fun of emotional events and people

    I must confess to being extremely guilty of this.

    I'm extremely guilty of this, as well, but I don't feel guilty about it!

    Ok here is why I think OTHER personality types think INT's suck:

    1. Arrogance- We can't help the fact we are better than you in most ways, if you were as smart and capable as us you would be able to come up with a better argument. That not our fault that's your fault for trying to engage and intellectually superior animal, my cat doesn't try to debate me so you shouldn't either.

    2. Lack of emotion- If more people would actually analyze a situation maybe they wouldn't react like a complete retard when things don't go there way.

    3. Lack of social skills- We have social skills we just don't choose to use them on you, I like interacting with people I deem worthy of my time, not some worthless borderline ape that barely knows how to put together more than monosyllabic sentences.

    There's my 3 I'm sure it will piss off more than a few people but ask any INT what they think of intellectual inferiority and see if they don't agree.
    Question everything especially yourself.

    There are many of us here who do not agree. Sorry.

    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    I have, many, but it is a good observation, because it often happens.

    I think the whole tone of this post is indicative of why other types don't like certain INTXs.

    Honestly, you don't sound unemotional to me or as if intellect is your primary motivation; you sound like you've barely managing to restrain a lot of inner anger and frustration based (I suppose) on past interactions with other types of people.

    A poor reaction to this sort of approach is not really indicative of emotionalism stemming from the listener but from the speaker.

    (I suppose I could pretend to be an NF and try to empathize more with you, but I'm not much in the mood today and figure you'll better appreciate a direct and generally uncushioned approach.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    The worst sin in the world is incompetence, it causes stagnation and lack of creativity. My point was not just to show my frustration but to explain to other personality types, especially sensors, why we have a hard time with them. I don't believe in being politically correct and I don't believe that "everybody is equal" just because they happen to share some of the same genetic structure as myself. Deep down, don't most INT's get tired of having to pretend to care about what others think, and that we are the anomalies and not the standard? What do you think would happen if the actual producers did just quit as in Atlas Shrugged? Don't you think our superiority might be more apparent to the rest? I don't believe in discrimination of most types but I do believe that discrimination based on ability should be practiced voraciously. If logic and rational thought were actually held to the regard they should be we wouldn't need to have a thread that asks us, "Top 3 reasons INT sucks?" Which in my eyes is really asking "Top 3 reasons that INT's don't get the respect they should."
    Question everything especially yourself.
