    Seriously, tho: yes, of course.

    I think each type has its relative strengths, and that includes INTPs.

    I think plenty of what I've stated in this thread has pointed to that fact.

    Or if you hook the switch up to a TV. If its wired to the TV and your light turns on and off then you have serious problems.

    The INTP claims: "The switch turns the light on" is not true. But, "'The switch turns the light on' is not true" is false, therefore the INTP is wrong.

I still think its anal when the situation is so obvious as a light switch that the whole argument is just considered anal retentive. The INTP is more stuck on teaching universal truths based on whats said instead of what the other person understands. At the end of the day its all a matter of how far pulled into or out of the situation you are.

    The thing is that an INTJ may disregard what was said as important and not even pay attention...hence not learn something outside of the current situation. While the INTP may not realize INTJs know everything that the INTP said and just sees them as anal retentive because there really is no reason as its already known and understood and at this point the arguing is over wording not understanding.

    He actually contradicted what an INTJ said, by providing a fuller Ti perspective.

    And, aside from that, it was good because he offered a rather fair appraisal of the situation.

    But you do make yourself look really foolish by not realizing that that's the reason I said those things.

    Of all the things you could point to, for that to be where you "call me out" on INTP bashing is hilarious/absurd.

    No, it's not really.

    Well, in one sense it is.

    It is me being objective (TeSe).

    I'm sorry you have such difficulty in that regard.

    ETA: Interestingly, though, what you're trying here is probably what I was pointing to with "Fe-shaming".

    It's also completely unrelated to my evaluation of Poki's comment.

    And, as such, as another Ti dom has basically been telling you, Mal: you're being irrational.

    And, as such, once again, your behavior pretty much *reeks* of inferior Fe...

    Off-topic tangent removed. Stick to the Ni discussion.

    them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
