    What every INTJ needs to know

    You despise many people. Alright, that wasn’t it. You already knew that didn’t you. One more thing—many people hate us as well. It doesn’t have to be like this. You are capable of charming the pants off anyone you meet, yet your introversion stifles you. Do me a favor—realize that: you are a good conversationalist, you are extremely smart, you’re a quick thinker, you can command attention, and you’re probably pretty good looking. The point is everybody has a cookie, and you are able to get it.

    Here is a list of my difficulties: I ignore acquaintances as I pass by, I find it almost physically impossible to smile, I keep my words brief, I prefer not to talk to anyone, I wish people would leave me alone most of the time, I wish people would not tell me useless things, the list goes on…

    Q: What must we do to have social comfort and interact well with people?
    A: Suffer to say what you are thinking (consider your words carefully, so as not to come off as a prick)
    Try to smile
    Don’t be so quick to call people retarded (It’s a tough one, I know).

    Here is a real life example. Every morning I patronized the coffee shop in the campus library, ordering a single espresso. Apparently nobody orders this particular drink at my college, so the hot barista lady asked me whether I want it in some steamed milk or an iced coffee. I had to think, It might not be nice to say, “No. That’s not what I asked for, you idiot.” Instead I said, “No thanks, just black.” Ever after, she knew my usual.

    At the end of the school year, I was studying for a final in the library with a friend. We decided to get coffees. I ordered a fastidious cappuccino. The barista and I exchanged playful banter. Back at the books my friend remarked, “Man I wish I could charm women like that.”
    I didn’t do it on purpose, I guess I’m oblivious too.

    You may be INTJ, but you can get social benefits in addition to independence.

    Leave me your comments, observations, and anything I missed.

    Ciao,
    J.M.

    I've never had the problem of charming someone and calling someone an idiot ... I do it all the time. It must be because of that pure awesomeness I'm made of. =D

    Must be.

    Do you have anything to add, critique, disagree, agree, liken unto another type, etc.?

    Yes. Why did you make a Article about INTJs? You should have made this article Introverts in general. I believe that is why people don't like you, I'm Cocky and Arrogant, but you guys have egos the size of the universe. Everything does not have to be about INTJ or something relating to INTJ. I don't mind this because it counters my own Cockiness but if you want to be more "extroverted" then you should really work on taming it; Controlling it. I say you rewrite this article to include all the introverted types instead of just the INTJs.

    I agree on your smile. This is one things NTs have going for them, if you need to get what you want all you have to do is pretend you have some ounce of feelings in your body. This will help you concur your social society in order to better your natural benefits.

    Also, you generalized a bit to much in this. I've met some extremely stupid INTJs, yes it does happen, just like any other type can be stupid or intelligent. You should give vague compliments to introverts in general say "I know that you can be the one of the most intelligent people in the world." Vague, it doesn't say that you're intelligent it just says that you might be. These kinds of compliments are a great tool to add to your arsenal.

    Now, unlike extroverts you won't be able to command as much attention, but yes I agree that if they work at it, the introvert, could command quite a lot of attention themselves. It just takes pratice to keep your mind from going to introvert for the other person to follow. Unless you're talking to say a ENTP then go as introverted as you want We'll be able to follow ().

    I just typed about as much as you did in a reply.

    In ending; Yes, You need to train your mind not to go crazy when people are annoying, but also to be free to say whatever you need to say.

    Woah Lykos. There is no need to get into narcissitic fury over the expressiveness of INTJs. Your ego is smeared across numerous posts on the forum, so rather than attempt to undermine the expressiveness of INTJs. Get onto making your own post on ENTPs.

    We will talk about ourselves as we deem fit. In being introvertive and you extrovertive as you say. The INTJ articles aim to reach introverts, that happen to be NTJ in particular. Sure we could go onto other types, but it was clarified in the title whom the target audience is. You have the opportunity to ignore it, rather than play your oneupmanship games in here.

    However my Ego can be tamed, and If I'm trying to get something I won't talk about myself at all. Infact in real life I rarely ever talk about myself. I'll say "I can do it" or "I know how to do that", maybe even some "Don't doubt my abilities" but I don't talk about myself like my INTJ friend who is so cocky its funny. I'm not in charge of making News Post unless Lance has decided to allow me to do that. I'm in charge of making polls and thus I do so.

    To answer your second part. I'm always striving to make things better, as you know, and I believe this post could be far greater if it would have been Introverts in general instead of a INTJ "Narcissitic Fury". I'm taking my opportunity to play my oneupmanship game in here because I feel that this could be a better post. I'd gladly point out the mistakes of ENTP. I know we have problems and I'm very aware of them myself. I just choose to continue to do them anyway, I guess that could be a problem in itself.

    This post was posted as a News Article on a Typing site for Multiply types. If the site was INTJ central then I'd have little problem with it, but there are more then one type on this site. Which is something Ni users seem to fail to realize. This site isn't about you its about all types.

    Please, when you post be sure to try and not sound so arrogant. If you keep it up you'll make everyone think we've switched mind sets.

    And I guess we should think of the children also? Well Liam, it was laid out in the beginning, and if you chose to come in here complaining about exclusiveness, then remember that it says what it is about on the label. Regardless of how many arguments you have. Besides, I am fairly sure that he posts an INTJ "weakness" on the OP. So we can both give this a rest, k? m'kay.

    Ah, just like a INTJ to ignore a perfectly good argument because they no they will lose.

    *places bait*

    The end of our little spat, neph, is not the end of the one I have with Joe. You got yourself involved when I was obviously speaking to Joe.
