What is up with INTJs? What makes them so special? I've been lurking around on this forum for awhile, and I've seen far too many comments and replies kissing the asses of the INTJs. Every time INTJ is mentioned, everybody starts to spew out comments like "wow, they're all total geniuses!!!" or "Every INTJ ever is totally better than every human ever to walk the earth!!!!!" That's an exaggeration, of course, but I'm not exaggerating very much. Personally, I'm tired of this. Besides INTJs being glorified and treated like gods, ENTJs are at the opposite end of the spectrum, as for the intellectuals. It seems like the general consensus is that the INTJs are the most intelligent people ever to grace the world with their presence, while the ENTJs are... well... they're good at telling people what to do. This makes no sense. There are plenty of ENTJs out there who are indisputably geniuses. Has anybody heard of Edward Teller? or Carl Sagan? We're NTs too, and nobody seems to take us seriously. Another thing I've noticed is that it isn't just other people glorifying INTJs, but the INTJs themselves being narcissistic assholes. There is only one INTJ on this website that I've seen not being a complete narcissist, but I can't remember the username. Some guy with Axl Rose as his picture. Whoever you are, thanks for not being a total jackass. I can be arrogant myself sometimes, but all of these INTJs take it to a whole new level. Here's a thread that demonstrates one little bit of the INTJ's conceitedness: (since this is my first post, The website would not allow me to post the link. Just google intj stereotypes. It's the first result)
I know those lists are all made in a lighthearted manner, don't get me wrong. I'm capable at laughing at myself and not taking things seriously, but come on. Look at those lists. Compare them to the entj. Nobody gives us any credit. If there was some kind of award ceremony for the types, INTJ would win smartest, and ENTJ would win the meanest and most unethical. All I'm saying is that you guys need to start looking at individual people's skills rather than grouping people into one big lump. In my sophomore year of high school, I had a class where I sat with an INTJ. He was a total idiot. INTJs may be naturally more intelligent, but in the end, some of them just aren't very smart. So many of the stereotypes out there are just wrong. I'm an ENTJ. I've never been domineering in my life, I usually don't see myself as a forceful presence, I'd rather stay home and read than go out and conquer Europe, and I'm not just some guy out to get money. I'm still in school, but when I do get a job, I would it to be a high paying one, and believe me, I'm working for it. I don't want it to buy fancy cars and diamond encrusted swimming pools, I want it to be able to spend money on learning every bit of knowledge there is to know.
Like I said before, don't lump people into groups. There are INTJs who are geniuses, and INTJs that are complete idiots. INTJs are not gods. On the other hand, there are some types that deserve to be taken more seriously, like the ENTJs.
That is all.
