1-3. Because we get involved in threads like this.
Woe is me, the world isn't fashioned for INTx's, we're all misunderstood, etc.
Sometimes I stand back to consider if my INTJ perception of the people around me is fair. It probably isn't. So I suppose they're misunderstood. So I have no right to complain (logical enough? )
I found an absolutely fantastic quote somewhere which I have, unfortunately, lost...something at the back of my mind tells me Kant wrote it, but I'm starting to believe that I've made that up. At any rate, it ran something along the lines of this:
Apologies to the females in the room. But I think this sums things up quite nicely, and it seems to me to be a very, very INTx trait.The root of all evil is man's ability to treat himself as a special case.
P.S. If anyone can tell me who actually wrote this I'll marry them and/or give them all of my worldly possessions (whichever is less painful)
