    I doubt there was one ISTP who drank Jim Jones' Kool-Aid.

    Yes. We have to wade through it's projections from others daily.

    All I know about this is that lots of people think I have a distorted reality because of what they see as a 'TiNi loop' - this could be evidenced by things such as the thread link in my signature and all of the crazy places it leads!

    people with ni and ti loops are usually quite rare. i think.

    Reality distortion is about preying on people emotively and with The Vision™. I think the types who use it are highly dependent on Ni and Fe or something to get their points across. I'm not really one to follow something because I was "inspired" or emotionally coerced. I call bullshit at step 1, I think. The first rule of salespeople is to "create a weakness" in the person. Making them think they're in need of something (which brings us to step 2, "fulfilling that need"). Besides sales, both mainstream religions and cults rely on the same tactic.

    I agree with KDude

    Also, for me, whenever someone starts talking super enthusiastically and passionately about something, I immediately get suspicious and skeptical, trying to figure out what they're omitting from their speech.

    I think "reality distortion field" was first coined in reference to Steve Jobs and his keynote speeches at Mac Expos. Anytime he announced a new company strategy or product, the audience were like cult members. No matter how insignificant the subject, Jobs had everyone under his sway.. "Ooooh... Ahhh.. Woooo!!" It's become a general term for how well marketing personalities and cult leaders can entice their fans and adherents.

    I could be mistaken about the OP, but this is the standard definition. And I think ISTPs are fairly immune to it.
