1. They make more money than you.
2. They are more popular than you.
3. They are more stable than you.
Gotta hate 'em.
1. They are more frugal then most people, and they have a tendency to acquire skills that make them valuable, but that doesn't necessarily mean they make more money. I know a few that are unemployed and or trapped in blue collar jobs that are not high salary.
2. This is interesting. I think it is true that on average, an SJ can come across magnetically (because they withhold themselves which attracts people like crazy), but once that wears off and the outer layers of the onion have been skinned, some SJ's are revealed to be completely different people than they let on. it's usually the ones who are not able to connect emotionally with other people that are actually revealed to be cantankerous and anti-social, because they over value their so called "privacy".
3. This might be true, but it's also true that by being "stable" that they are unable to see beyond their own limitations, expecting others to behave the way they do, which is not very proactive. What's good for the goose is not always good for the gander.

Of course, those things don't only apply to SJs, but I'm sure there are many SJs to whom they do apply.
1. "Cross" can have different meanings. If you behave in a way which appears contrary to their own value system, you can also "cross" them, even if their interpretation is wrong. For some, there's no amount of explanation that can change their mind once you have been branded in some way, which is kinda unhealthy.
2. They think they are being high-minded, of course.
3. Why change when the SJ majority hivemind is in control??
ps. I actually like you guys for the most part (when you are being nice.. lol). It's the ENTJ way to point out flaws though so don't take it too personally.
1. It doesn't make sense to me either, but that's the answer the standardized test making people put on the practice test, so that's the answer you should get. (More or less a teachers words in reply to a student correcting her. It didn't help that I already sucked at this particular subject.)
2. Rules, familiarity, and rigidity ON MY TERMS, damnit!

Said grass-cutting or lack thereof has an OBVIOUS alterior motive; why can't anyone else see it?
Rely on their own experiences and their own interpretations of those experiences. If an idea doesn't match up to their experience, they discard it.
Get stressed and distracted easily.
The ones I know can be bi-polar in how they act around me. I have a hard time reading them (then again, I have a hard time reading everyone...). I think they hide how they feel and what they really think about certian things, especially if they think it will offend someone or give them the upperhand. This bothers me.
