    No. I don't have any idea if this is specifically part of my personality or other INTJ's nor do I care. It is something I'm guessing younger INTJ's do. I find it irritating and childish and if you really want to push my boundaries...go ahead. I don't recommend it though.

    You have to make it VERY, crystal clear how you feel to your friend. Don't do the S thing and be polite because that's what you do. And don't answer with - I get upset and you know this blah blah blah. Say shut the fuck up assclown. How many times do you need to be told you are being a fucking douchebag?
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    That is what I meant to say as well, in case it was not apparent.

    I guess the agreement means it is also the way to go.

And I don't know if I want to let her do that the number of times that it would take her to figure it out.
    Yeah, IDK. I don't do that with people who don't react well. I stop as soon as I get a hint that I should stop, and then I never do it to that same person again. I think we're less annoying than Ps who constantly take the conversation off topic with their little jokes--they're the same games to me, just exercised differently. The endgame is being lighthearted, in my experience.

    Default Ask an INTJ!

    I'm not an INTJ. But there are plenty of INTJs (or MBTI enthusiasts) on the forum and hopefully atleast a few of them would be kind enough to take their time to answer questions directed at their much hated glorious type.

    So if you have random questions that you don't believe need an entire thread dedicated for, make it known in this thread.

    I'm shocked as to why a similar thread doesn't exist. And I have some questions of my own.

    Hmmmm.... I should probably begin?

    Why is it 'on the forum' and not 'in the forum'?

    What differences do you IMMEDIATELY see between yourself (INTJ) and an ISTJ in -

    (2) Online?

    I have seldom seen INTJs defending another (INTJ) or defending 'the INTJ personality' against offensive remarks made. Younger INTJs are the only ones who tends to come to the rescue. Why is this?

    I could very well imagine why, but I need to know whether I am right or wrong.

    Ps -

    I hope eventually one of you will start replying.

    I don't have any observations online. IRL as a gross generalization, I find ISTJs tend more to linear thinking. When confronted with a problem or decision opportunity, they look first at past example, while INTJs are more likely to jump right away to something new. In conversations, even on intellectual topics, their focus is more on facts than implication or interpretation, though older ones seem more able to expand on facts. The ones I know are more above-board and transparent than INTJs. You know where you stand with them, and you couldn't ask for a more loyal friend.

    If my own experience is any indication, it is because we (I) aren't really offended by such comments. They are just words on a forum - big deal. If the mood strikes, we may reply with sarcasm. If there are facts to correct, we may do this if we have time. That said, we do sometimes speak up for each other. I've done so here for Engineer and Zarathustra on occasion (not that they need it), and others have done so for me. INTJs can take care of themselves for the most part.
    Though the ground was burnt and everything turned into ashes, we will revive again. The sky is still blue, the crashing waves from long ago are unchanged. This is Earth, our planet. This dream is in the hearts of people; so long as they do not abandon it, it will not fade away. For the sake of tomorrow, keep a song in your heart. For the sake of our future, let us stop our crying and stand on our ground firmly.
