    Default What happens if you correct an INTP?

    I mean no offence. I love INTPs! But I’ve seen a few alleged INTPs make spelling mistakes and generally misunderstand what people are saying (all while they're talking about being incredibly logical and rational ). So... how would an INTP react to being corrected? And do you think that most of the people who claim to be INTPs on the internet actually are INTPs?

    Bruises our ego to be called out, coupled with a brief flash of inferiority -- Yet we'll never say anything as that would be acknowledging that we let someone get under our skin.

    Don’t know. I don’t believe I’ve pissed one off by correcting them. I usually don’t correct people unless they’re being an ass.

    I don't think I have ever experienced anything of the sort. I find any criticism I give is usually well-received because I hate giving it and go out of my way to offer suggestions and make it not seem harsh.

    It probably varies from person to person. And also on the type of criticism. Is it a friendly suggestion like "Hey I noticed this problem, and I think it might be helpful if you looked at it this way/did this." Or completely disregarding or insulting whatever it is that the other person sees as negative or needing improvement. Generally, people regardless of type tend to react better to the former than the latter. Everyonce in awhile, I have encountered someone that only responds well to very harsh critiques. But I can't remember one ever striking me as an INTP.

    I would think that a really mature and well-developed one would be willing to admit their mistake and make adjustments as necessary.

    From my experience, limited as it is, intps are receptive to constructive criticism.

    Perhaps more so [tentatively] than INFJ's, INTP women are quite an enigma.

    Look at Charlotte Gainsbourg or Winona Ryder:






    Perhaps they tickle the quizzical part of me because I don't see as them often as INFP's.

    Ti is a very underrated function I feel.

    The INTP becomes wiser.

    Personally I like any opportunity to increase my knowledge base, and sometimes that means being corrected.

    They would rather be corrected from a book than by another human being. Perhaps say 'I've read that' and then correct them. They can't handle it otherwise.

    Or maybe say 'could this be a better explanation.' I think that has worked too.
