    This thread is one big illustration of why INTP's are not objective. It's both hilarious and sad at the same time. Ultimately I think pt is right when he said (somewhere in this thread) that there can be obective people of any type (and of course subjective people of any type as well).

    You stole my idea! Or maybe we just had the same idea.

    I'm not sure what's the funniest though, the idea or the not noticing of the whole irony.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Objective is in relation to the object no? Well then you'd be better off first looking at those who deal with the object than the self no? So that's INTJ or ENTJ... shocking...

    Btw if testing is irrelevant then details are irrelevant... as is this discussion and many others. Kinda removes the point of interaction if you ask me.

    Anyhow the most objective person is one who recognises their own inability to be objctive. That is more likely to be INTPs admitedly but the whole obsession with some fine distinction way past when it is of any use kinda of makes them a little too driven to be all that objective.

    To make it about the ball you have to be able to put the damn thing down once in a while so you can see it.

    Anyhow... may I ask why this even came up? Is it for predictive purposes or merely a mine's bigger than yours?

    Rather than giggling away, it might be more constructive to explain what you mean....for the ironically-challenged amongst us.

    Please expand... need detail.

    The way I was looking at it was from the point of view that objective is discovered where as subjective is more extrapolated. Hence objective is more directly linked to the object (okay it should be "the subject of whatever" but that's crossing object and subject over which tends to confuse). If I am considering a rock then I can consider what it means to me but that's making me the focus where as to consider the rock as a rock is more objective as it retains focus upon the rock itself.

    That's not very well explained.. I'm tired.

    It's not supposed to be a competetive statement you know..

    Like INTPc it's amusing to read a lot of stuff written by objective robots (not that this is what's going on here, merely an extreme case to show the contrast) when what you're reading has such emotion laced within it.

    Also part of this thread is devoted to defining the nuances of what is this "objective" and also defining other items as well. Surely if all the INTPs were objective then agreement could be reached very quickly as to what things were to be labelled as. The fact that there is disagreement kinda shows that either it's not yet been found (a favourite stand of any decent INTP) or that it's mired in subjectivity.

    Perhaps I'm being too perfectionistic about this? It's common.

    We are equating objectivity with impersonality here (not with OBJECTS).

    Perhaps we should change the thread title to the "NT impersonality scale".

    NTs are often described as robots. Doesn't get much more impersonal than that.

    Proposed revision:

    Most Robotic: ROBOT...INTP...ENTP...INTJ...ENTJ: Least Robotic

    Your rock is object to the subject.

    The rock as such is beyond perception.

    I saw that in the beginning but decided not to smart ass Jack and try to "correct" his definition. However perhaps an INTP 5 is very detached... but not particularly objective. The most objective in such a way I'd guess as being an ENTJ. They are the ones who are most likely to decide what an entire organisation SHOULD be doing according to their grand scheme and then reorganise people as they see fit. Sure you may not see the detachment first up but it's evident in the process which happens before they get embroiled in the whole hammering square peg into round hole process.
