    Ask an INTJ a question.

    There's a thread like this in the ESTJ forum, and I thought it would be beneficial here. It might help clear up some preconceived notions and stereotypes of INTJ's while also reducing some unnecessary threads.

    So here, any type can ask a question. Any INTJ can answer.

    But remember, we are people too. We eat, sleep, and piss like everyone else.

    So ask away!

    I'll start? : )

    I've always wanted more T to my F...so why do you think you fall more on the T side of things or..what sort of tendencies do you have that make you more of a T? (A little vague of a question so I apologize)

    Things that make me more a T than an F. I can start off with decision making situations. I strive for efficiency on all things I do. If it's quick and easy I'll do. I guess my only suggestion is make more of use of your T on non-personal things once you've done that make it slowly into you personal life, depends on how sensitive your F is really.

    This is pretty much a textbook answer, but I usually make decisions based on logic and what's "fair" rather than on people's needs or my values.
    I try to find logical explanations for why people feel the way they do, even though there may not be one.
    I don't really understand why people ask for the truth and then get offended when they receive it. If people want a lie or a sugarcoated statement, they should ask for it.

    Hope that answered your question sufficiently.

    Thank you! Makes a lot of sense. :T I don't think efficiency is the word for it. I think objectivity is clearer...I like being fair but at the same time, I can't ignore the needs and sensitivities of other people. What a struggle.

    Also, why the name change?

    Efficiency seems more like a J thing. Also, detachment is a...trademark of Thinkers. Or maybe that's just introversion. :x

    Another part of T vs. F is remaining calm and collected - if you're flooded with emotions, you won't be thinking objectively. Interestingly enough, it seems that when I experience the rare emotional fluctuation, I still dissect it with logic - but I think that's because the emotion isn't strong enough to be overpowering.

    No, that type of detachment (it's on borderline indifference) definitely a T thing. ; ) Introversion is more of a in-my-own-world detachment. Which sparks me to ask, how do you do that? Is it not just a mechanical answer and you actually do have your own biased opinions or is it just that the most 'proper' answer is the one you take as your opinion..? Sorry, I'm just guessing around here xD

    Hmm...when I am overwhelmed by emotions, I lose the ability to think rationally. Or I do think rationally, but not in the average, 'sane' person way. Sometimes it affects my ability to do everyday tasks and I have to work everything out before I can move on. I do however, have the capability of shoving my lesser emotions aside when I feel that they might start affecting me negatively.
