    This seems to be a common irritant for NTs.

    In college, I would fluff them out to meet the minimum. When I was older (35-40) and taking classes for the hell of it, I stopped doing that and my papers were invariably at least a page and a half short. But the writing was better and the professors considered them A+ papers. I was never docked for the paper being less then the minimum.

    I did invariably lose half a grade point for being a day late.

    a 4 line long single sentence that was the summary of a long poem.
    1.5 spacing made it so much easier to have a one pager summary of a book.
    teachs/profs definitely had a preference bias for this propensity

    Yeah, I always loved the teachers that were smart/relaxed enough to realize that I'd covered the subject thoroughly, even if I didn't meet the page quota.

    It seems like this thread is dominated more by INTPs than INTJs, so I don't identify with quite a few of the things that people mention. I can't generalize for INTJs, but for myself, I almost never turned things in late (too much of a J in me). Anyway, I think INTJs and INTPs are markedly different (but there's already a huge thread devoted to that idea).

    My three reasons:

    1/ There aren't enough of us. Hence, the feeling of "not fitting in" or "being an outcast" carries a heavy burden through our entire lives.

    2/ Over-thinking and under-doing is a major source of conflict.

    3/ Our genius is severely underrated by the society at large.


    (I'm glad I limited myself. I could probably come up with a thousand reasons if I thought about it long enough. I guess this is an example of reason #2.)

    1. Social anxiety
    2. love/hate relationships with people in general- gah! they confuse me.
    3. Terrible at focusing- i never pay attention to real time conversations.

    We will never fully understand emotions in all its nuances despite feeling them strongly at times.

    We are accused of being unloving because we express our love in practical - not saccharine - ways.

    We tell it like it is and no one loves that.

    3) Some real social issues... for myself, for others and in groups.

    INT's are built to be seperated from others who aren't. Sure we can relate logically, but not very personally.

    1. Many view us as having "social problems", whereas we see them as socialy corrupt and annoying ourselvs.

    2. We think everything sucks, we question everything, for better or worse

    3. We like to take credit for our ingenius ideas in order to make up for being social/personal outcasts.

    don't much mind though.
