    What INTJ stereotypes do you not fit/contradict?

    At this point the INTJ stereotypes are well worn ruts in the road of intellectual discussion of our type. I'm personally bored to death with the ever-revolving door of threads asking how much we personify this that or the other stereotype (see the 101 threads asking to what extent we're sociopaths, autistic, geniuses, capable of love, able to care about others, arrogant, assholes, etc).

    I'm in the mood to turn things on their head, so let's talk about the ways we don't fit or defy or are the polar opposite of any of these popular stereotypes.

    Share your uniqueness, and feel free to go as in depth about it as you want or just state it. More in depth discussion might include: do you think the stereotype you defy is invalid, do you think the stereotype is valid as far as generalizations go but think you have a particular developmental path that led you to be different, do you think the stereotype is valid but only tells part of the story and you occupy the other part, do you think your apparent opposition to the stereotype is really only a surface level understanding and you can explain how the apparent contradiction actually fits perfectly into the stereotype, etc.

    Pop culture paints us out to be like this...

     


    ...when we're really more like this.

    Almost all of them.


    1. INTJ(s) are also commonly depicted in a masculine light/stereotype. Nerdy awkward or mysterious intellectual quiet guy trope. I am neither male nor fit those other stereotypes.

    2. I also rarely debate/argue much [in spite of isolated cases online]. NTJ's are not debaters. ENTJ will rarely debate either. Debating is all TP/FP. When some tight ass offline attempting to debate/open a debate, I am done before it began.

    evidence before the court:

     

    hey, it's void!!!!


    i'm perceptive. i'm a world-beating slob. i'm far more interested in people than protons. i read fiction almost exclusively. i'm not interested in 'technology'. i don't need anyone else to translate or mentor me through most interaction with other people, and i do not live in a fucking 'shell' just waiting for some rescuer to 'break into' it.

    and, yeah. i'm at least no less-nice than any other person i've met.

    I'm not arrogant nor judgemental.
    I'm quite charming.
    Planning everything? Nah. Not me.
    I don't suppress my emotions.

    The only stereotype of the INTJ that I don't fit is the being successful at work one. INTJ's are supposed to make great employees and are supposed to do pretty well financially, at least compared to other introvert types. I haven't had a regular job in decades, and I haven't made much money on my own, either.

    Saaaaame. And I’m social and feel, not great, but fine socially.

    Adding: I’m not a take-charge decision-maker that has my whole life trajectory carefully made through a master plan

    There is no interesting time to debate outside of academic setting(s). Most things are a matter of opinion/anecdote (&) tedious to argue. You are perhaps bored.
