    Thank you!
    I don't look down my nose at people, but I love cats and they can be somewhat like INTJs in their independence and aloofness.
    I thought it was a funny picture and rather fitting for an INTJ.

    I'm curious why you would say that. Could you explain?

    INTJs usually interact with the world via Te which makes us look confident and decisive but don't forget that the dominant function Ni is a perceiving function that leads to the contemplation of multiple possibilities so I'm inclined to think that it makes INTJs likely to be inwardly more uncertain and open-ended than we appear on the outside.

    Another thing is that INTJs generally lack the need to seek external validation or to fit in. This individualistic streak may give the illusion of confidence.

    Are you suggesting hugs make INTJs feel insecure? Annoyed, more like, especially in public, or if we are busy, or if we don't know you well, or . . .
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    What you said was: Security is an illusion when there is so much uncertainty. It is said that doubt increases with knowledge.

    And the reason I said - "Usually only for INTPs" is because INTJs don't believe in uncertainty. There's no such thing. We believe in certainty and don't rest until we have it. The more knowledge we have, the more certain we are.

    The first thing I thought when I read your comment is that it sounded like INTP gobbledygook.

    In studying INTPs closely, I have seen them express exactly the sentiment you expressed.

    To tell you the truth, what I wanted to say was, "Spoken like a true INTP." but I think that's against the rules, so I didn't.

    You're not wrong.

    Most of the knowledge NTJs acquire is meant to be practical. NTPs harvest a database of information that seems useless to NTJs. However, dealing with the same piece of theoretical information, we go about it to find conclusions and assert certainly, while NTPs thrive in the open ended questions and the mystery of nothingness that is on top of the accumulated knowledge they have.
    That's exactly why they seem disoriented and unsure while we give the impression of confidence and certainty.
    الخَيلُ وَاللَيلُ وَالبَيداءُ تَعرِفُني *** وَالسَيفُ وَالرُمحُ وَالقِرطاسُ وَالقَلَمُ
    Swift steeds, dreary nights, and the desolate wasteland, all know me full well
    As do the sword, the spear, the paper and the pen.
