    ...am I the only one that thinks the thread title sounds like an unholy cross between a Douglas Adams book title and a new-age porn flick title?

    Dunno about Se, but every single INTJ I've met is pretty much a natural at social strategy, getting maximum benefits via minimal effort/self disclosure. I mistake them for extroverts often, especially the ladies.

    Yeah, this reminds me of the repressed librarian trope. You know the one, the one where inside that virginal, rigid, intellectual librarian, lies a sensual woman panting for attention, if only the right man would come along to free her. I know a lot of librarians, and can say with assurance that this also does not correspond with reality.

    There is this general trend to portray INTJs as cool, but the reality is that we were probably the kids who got swirlies. I suspect that this is an attempt to revitalize the idea of the INTJ as cool. You notice that you never see ESFPs be described as having a hidden talent for great artistic insight or spiritual wisdom, even though they should by this same train of thought. It really does seem to be an effort to drum up the It factor of the INTJ.

    There is also a massive ego boost if you are the one to transform a person. That's an old idea as well - think Taming of the Shrew, or a ton of romances, in which the love of a good woman gets the bad boy to find his inner responsible self and settle down. It seemed like the guy in the video was giving himself credit for loosening up an INTJ, so that she was now fulfilled, relaxed, and a great dancer and great in bed. It was all due to being with him.

    Or the general trend of portraying socially awkward or dysfunctional people as cool... in a way which 'non-awkward' people enjoy. I've always been sort of irritated by that since I've noticed it - the popularity of "Napoleon Dynamite" and "Big Bang Theory," for example.

    It's like, screw you, you would treat those people like shit if you knew them in reality, yet you think they are so charming when its on a screen.

    I've had SJ coworkers compare me to Sheldon, and they are surprised when I take umbrage at it. Most people don't want to be likened to a caricature of a dysfunctional nerd. The only thing I can think of is that they genuinely think that those characters are accurate representations of what people inclined towards scientific interests are like. What's worse is when someone self-identifies as a nerd on the basis of having watched Big Bang Theory.

    After seeing a video from C.S. Joseph basically talking about how to sabotage an INTJ's career, I don't entirely trust him. During the video, he seemed to have a vendetta against the type. He had a condescending derision as he explained how to take advantage of us and our character flaws, and modify our personality, "social engineering" as he called it. I challenged him about it in the comments section, but he just responded with an amorphous platitude about the "greater good". At this point, I wouldn't consider giving him the time of day.

    I see he also has a video on social engineering INFJs. It seems like he is not the most scrupulous of people.
