    Why do you think they'd rather be corrected by a book? Does that stem from some sort of disinclination to direct human contact, you think? After all, books are written by people. (I'm not trying to be aggresssive; I'm just wondering what you think about that.)

    Maybe because people sometimes correct others for assholish reasons and that dynamic isn't present when getting information from a book. That's why I would prefer the book at least.
    Do not assume.

    Do you mean reasons like wanting to intimidate or discredit?
    I've adapted to situations with people who enjoy criticizing me, in attempts to do one or both, although I won't say I'm happy that I had to get used to them in the first place.

    I do it quite often. Still here . . .

    Some people deserve to be discredited - or more to the point, those around them deserve for it to happen.
    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...

    If an INTP is running in the wrong direction of interpreting what someone said, you'll get an OHHHHHhhhh out of them and sincere appreciation if you course correct them- though it might take some initiative to cut them off, stop them, and get them going in the right direction.

    However, if you correct an INTP on a spelling mistake for a word you understood perfectly well, he or she is going to be irritated that you're wasting their time with such boring and unnecessary things like 'correct spelling.' Please. Save that DMV accountant crap for the TJs who care.

    I think that there's a misconception about INTPs. I used to date one and he was very open to debate and talk about alternatives. He loved to argue, but he also always listened to other people and tried to understand their point of view. I think that a lot of INTPs are far more open and flexible than they might look like at first.

    I agree with you. However, not everyone does it for the same reasons. Sometimes they just want to be aggressive, even if they fail to discredit their target reasonably. In that context, discredit refers more to slander.

    hey guys, you've got to hear this cool story...
    A man said to the universe:
    “Sir, I exist!”
    “However,” replied the universe,
    “The fact has not created in me
    A sense of obligation."

    The Most Liked Member is always right. The Most Liked Member gets to write history the way they desire. Just like the Kings of old.
