    As much as I love you guys; i have a few questions. A very good friend of mine, who is an intj, seems to have difficulty with admitting mistakes. I mean, I dont know if she feels like shes wrong, maybe she just doesnt. But anywho; We often end up in like small stupid "discussions" where one of us have misunderstood the other. And I do a lot of mistakes. I read things way too fast, I dont keep up, blah blah blah. But there are certainly moments where she has misunderstood me, and I try to explain, and she just goes on and on. Like she wont stop until I either ignore the discussion (these will usually happen while we talk about something else, so i just dont answer to the topic and continue on the other), og just "admit defeat". I'm sorry I cant give much context. I'm trying to be a little anonymous :D But yeah, I'm just wondering if this is a "typical" intj trait.

    And this isnt really an issue in our relationship. It doesnt ruin anything. I love her to bits, lol. Its just a little annoying to be the one who always "cave in".
    No, because I don't have any.
    Ya gotta do it logically, rather than from touchy-feeling social shunning methods.

    It's not hard, as long as you have a sound reason of why exactly I have a fault. Volunteering to admit it would be a little harder, I would need a little push. :)

    Yes, I'll usually become angry and insult/troll before admitting my errors.

    It's probably a Fi thing.

    If I had a problem admitting a made an error if I made one, that would prevent me from ensuring I don't repeat it. Which doesn't benefit me.

    I try to always admit my errors.
    I guess sometimes when I put a lot of effort into something, I lose objectivity and I need a while until I realize if I have wasted my time. So, for a while I may refuse to believe I have made mistakes and cherry-pick reasons why what I did really made sense. Once I am presented with logical arguments, I admit it.

    One downside of admitting errors is how other people perceive you. You will be perceived as making more errors if you always admit them and that may have negative professional or personal consequences.

    Nopes. I can admit my error. I have no pride in me. Lol
    XD well my pride is very low. Which is actually good because i can handle and control life easily
