As an INTJ i will omit when i am wrong and or arrogant.
lul INTJs more arrogant for sure. It's because we have a greater propensity to get impatient and annoyed. Sometimes it's legit superior knowledge + impatience, sometimes it's not necessarily superior knowledge but just a lot of ego stroking. Emotionally immature INTJs tend to try to argue that they are correct, and do a really good job picking apart and rationalizing an argument, even if the argument is fail. I've seen some INTJs go so far as to start demeaning the other person, imposing a particular "frame" around an argument, and asking some very rhetorical questions to try to get the upper hand, although this is rare. Most INTJs are not manipulative like this.
More emotionally mature INTJs focus more on actually being correct.
I feel it's more that INTP is "you can't be right because did you consider this and this and this and this [ad finitum et ad nauseam]?" whereas the INTJ is more "but you can't be right because I am right".

The INTP's you know must suck lol.
Even on a subject I know sometimes I look at it again to make sure what I'm saying is right, and then even when I do I never make it a definite statement. I'll say something like "i'm pretty sure" or "i'm not positive but"
So not only do I always try to only talk on things i know but even then I have to recheck myself and unless I'm reading right from something I'm still not confident in my remembrance lol
