    Are INTJs Right-Wing or Left Wing and Are INTJs Racist?

    ARE INTJs RIGHT-WING or LEFT-WING?

    I ask because of a chart I saw a while ago indicating INTJs mostly leaned Republican. I can't seem to locate the chart anymore.

    I found this somewhat hard to believe.

    Sure we embody conservative values (isolation, order, structure, etc), but I believe our ideologies, especially socially, tend to lean left making us left-leaning Democrats as opposed to Republican.

    This is all provided there is a black or white spectrum and not the more realistic spectrum of varying degrees where most, if not all, INTJs would likely be centrists with a left lean.

    The poll indicates black or white for general data.

    ARE INTJs the MOST RACIST TYPE?

    I came across this poll a little while back and thought it must be mistaken due to improper (subjective) coding behind responses. It stated INTJs as the most racist type then ISTJs and INTPs. So I thought I would seek some clarity on this. There may be some racist INTJs out there, but I believe our acknowledgement of certain truths will cause others to view us as racists, fallaciously.

    Anyhow, let me know what you all think.

    Political leaning has nothing to do with type. If anything I’d say the intj would be a rather unpolitical type.

    Loud, angry men that identify themselves as INTJ online tend to be very right wing and "traditional," especially those MGTOW-ish guys. As for racism: don't put that past anyone, no matter their type.

    Above all else, I’m a pragmatist / realist. Therefore, from a dispassionate perspective, I can tell militant ideologies can lead to erratic and irrational decisions. Contrary to what SJWs preach, political action must not be crafted based on feelings, daydreaming, wishful thinking or political correctness. Instead, it must meet the key strategic criteria of statecraft: convenience (for the national interest), feasibility and legitimacy.



    I reject all expressions of racism or discrimination (including what’s euphemistically referred to as "affirmative actions"). I favour meritocracy, i.e. judging people based on the content of their character… and the effectiveness of their results.

    Neither, I hate politics because it's politics. Nothing but a popularity contests that is full of lies & corruption.

    I'm definitely not a racist & can't imagine why someone would be one. The only logical conclusion I can come up with would be ignorance.

    I would argue MBTI can be used to assess political lean generally.

    I used to be very unpolitical. Very. Until I realized that if one has opinions, one is political whether one realizes this or not. And INTJs have opinions aplenty. So I studied up on topics and became more wise to the world I am a part of. It’s all about strategy.

    Of course, being a 1w9 might also be part of the equation.

    Hmmm, argument data inputted. Though I suspect those loud angry men right-wing traditional men are likely mistyped ISTJs.

    And I completely understand every type can be racist. The article just stated INTJs as being the most racist type, which struck me as odd.

    I used to be much more interested in politics than I am now. I kept seeing the merit of both sides and slowly drifted from left wing to the centre, but still to the left.

    Now I barely follow politics at all, I understand that it is important in human terms and will affect me, either positively or negatively, but I just feel completely apathetic toward the whole concept of human advancement, of which politics plays a large part.

    If I voiced my political opinions I would likely be viewed as right wing and racist by the far left. But I think most people can relate to that.
    So I just don't bother with any of it any more, it's boring to me.

    A few years back I talked about being active politically with a friend of mine. He said something like: "Of course politics is interesting. The problem is I frequently have the impression that only those of my acquitances who were the biggest bastands got really into politics and are active in political parties".

    I remember I argued that it wasn't correct and that "of course, normal, good people" go into politics.

    Now several years later, I've met plenty of politically active people and most of them have had some character traits I consider "issues" (manipulative, amoral, liars). Basically, if someone told me today what the friend told me back then, I wouldn't quarrel with them :D
