We all think and we all feel because we are all human. One letter out of four doesn't make you anymore nice than than someone who doesn't have that letter.
INTJs have feelings, strong ones too
If I happen to focus on something besides what everyone around me is feeling does that make me less "empathic" or less nosy? It's not my business if someone's having a bad day. That's doesn't mean I act or speak maliciously. In point of fact it means I'm less likely to even say anything.
@bethdeth @Abraxas @Elyasis and whomever else. I'm sorry I offended you. If it's true that you feel no condescension or bad feeling towards NFs, then that was completely erroneous of me for inferring so. I realize my mistake and I'm sorry. Please forgive me for being so ignorant and for coming to such incorrect conclusions. This was definitely a learning experience, and you can trust that it won't happen again.
many intjs do not know how to live in harmony with nature, any damage to the environment
intj disturb my(intp) life
I had to call you out because you're one of the few people I've come across to actually 'get' the Joker.
Not sure if he's an INTJ though, I'm pretty sure he's criminally insane so he can't be typed. Also, he's a fictional character not necessarily based on a real person's behavior. Still, an interesting character study.
Although, the Joker from the Killing Joke is a different story. I would argue, he's not at all insane. But now I'm digressing from the thread topic..
My apologies, the Joker is actually one of my role-models in life. You inspired me.
INTJ tend to have very different values than for example NF's.
For example if someone in government makes a proposition to accept immigrants from all over the world and offer them social perks like financial support by government because "every human has right to them"
Any INTJ or for that matter any NT would immediately realize that no country is capable of giving financial support for every African and Asian poor human, hence crush the proposition and make a point why did he do it (or the way you put it "walk on the eggshells").
Note:I might've gone little too extreme with my example, however it should make a point.
I have noticed that I have scared others when my actions and words consistently command respect. It is like I am a reliable source of sound reason. A kind of intellectual influence and deference.
My INTJ sis isn't what I'd characterize as 'terrifying' but I think many people who don't know her find her intimidating. She is so because she's sharp as hell, has one of the best bs detectors I have ever seen (and she's still relatively young at 25), and is so mature and driven that people know better than to approach her with stupid-chitchat talk. My sister is one killa INTJ. I'm lucky she's my sister, so I get to experience firsthand just how loving, loyal, and humorous she really is.
Oh, it doesn't hurt that she wears her signature liquid-liner cat eyes, so maybe that intensity of hers is only heightened.
