  1. How to spot a pseudo NT? With Textbook example.

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Usually, I couldn't care less when I meet hateful people online or when they horribly mistyped themselves. But today I'm stepping my foot into this muddy water because I recently had too much dealing with SFJs therefore I'm certainly not in an openminded and peaceful state so pardon me if you...
  2. Is It More Rewarding To Be Liked Or To Be Powerful?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I saw this question in an online test...16 personalities I think it was. It made me sprout more questions, specifically, I wanted to know an NTs answer to the question and the logic behind why they think so. I will put up a graph too, so lazy people like myself can see what majority of NTs on...
  3. Is this Ni?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Something I always do, but hardly notice I do until I "snap out" of it, is zone out and start creating scenarios in my mind. This could be triggered by remembering something that happened, or seeing something in the external world. I can be busy driving, reading, talking to someone, and I'll...
  4. "Don't Like To Be Put Into A Box"- What Are Your Thoughts On This

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I was struggling to come up with what exactly this is- is it a mentality, is it a belief, is it a subconscious defence mechanism, is it a perspective, is it deeper- is it a survival thing? I've heard this "I don't like to be put into a box" and "I don't believe in putting people into boxes"...
  5. What happens to a type when they are brought up in an opposing environment?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Basically what happens when a child of a certain type is brought up by people who dislike their type and discourage them from being the way they are? For example, what would happen to an NT brought up by NFs who continuously criticise them for not being emotional enough or for being cold...
  6. How Do You Feel About Saying 'Sorry'?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Sorry seems to be the hardest word. Yes, it's a song. But is the title something which NTs can relate to? Or are you guys generally okay with relinquishing this word?
  7. Is it just me, or is society a pointless hellhole run by sjs?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Maybe that's just where I live. I love informal debating, and anytime I raise a point, my conversation partner's rebuttal is 'because those are the rules.' Is it inaccurate to expect more of them? I think not, but maybe this is just the folly of humankind. Everyone is domineering...
  8. Dear Thinkers, What Are Your Emotional Triggers?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Heh, that kind of rhymes. Anyway, I've known some thinkers to get emotional. Tell me, what sets you off to react emotionally? Whether it be puppies to something personal like family, friends, or feeling incompetent. You name it.
  9. Which do you value more: Intelligence or Kindness?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    I saw this question in an MBTI test and I was surprised by my answer. I feel like I may not be a true INTJ (or NT) for this, but I value kindness over intelligence personally. I was wondering what everyone else thinks of this?
  10. [ENTP] Ask an ENTP! Ask anything you have ever been wondering about us, the Visionaries!

    ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    Hey everyone! I am Octopus1 and I am an ENTP-A. Like any extrovert, I like talking and prefer to answer questions, than to make them! And... Like any MBTI with a tendeny to Narcissistic Personality Disorder, my favorite topic is talking about myself! So go ahead and ask me ANYTHING you...
  11. What each temperament judges a person most on/looks for most in a person:

    Myers Briggs Forum
    What each temperament judges a person most on/looks for most in a person: Idealists (NFs): Character, Values Rationals (NTs): Intelligence, Independence Guardians (SJs): Status, Competence Artisans (SPs): Appearance, Personality A generalisation, of course, and not intended to say some groups...
  12. [INTP] Intp//entj

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    first off, how do intps approach love and dating? i know entjs are "aggressive suitors" and since intps are our opposite rational i was extremely curious. do intp males have any attraction to entj females? list them below please
  13. [INTP] Female (and male) INTPs and indulging/developing their Fe

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello INTPs, I've been struggling with my understanding of INTPs and their inferior function. I assumed inferior Fe most often presented in a repressed way, such that the person seems to lack empathy and emotion, but now I've encountered three INTPs who I've known for somewhere between 12 and 3...
  14. Temperament Allocation in Population

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I was having a conversation with an ENFP on the topic of dealing with Guardians (SJ) and Artisans (SP) and noticed that they make up a larger percentage of population by a large margin. My main question is that why do you think that is the case? I was theorizing that it could be the...
  15. A Caring Rational?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Well, I dunno about you guys, but I kinda get worked up over little things. I rarely give things to my friends usually just relying on how well we get along. Usually I just pick a random gift, but the real gift I emphasize is the presentation. Usually I somehow tailor the gift to the person's...
  16. The Most to the Least Self-Aware NT (Rational)

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    So among the NT (Rationals), which do you think is the most/least self-aware and why? Personally, I think the most self-aware would be the INTJ while the least would be the ENTP. INTJ because technically speaking, their four primary functions are Ni>Te>Fi>Se, and well, not really sure about...
  17. Brain on constant overdrive?

    NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects
    Hi there, I think ENTPs will agree that we very much constantly have our brain in overdrive. But do you other NT's feel the same?
  18. Is there any merit to X type is Smarter than Y?

    Cognitive Functions
    For instance. Which Is The Smartest MBTI Type? | Slayerment INTP/INTJ INFP/INFJ ENTP/ENTJ ENFP/ENFJ ISTP/ISTJ ISFP/ISFJ ESTP/ESTJ ESFP/ESFJ This goes into a complex system breaking down WHY it ranks the order but honestly, when I see these sorts of things I can't help but to think, " Some...
  19. Names and Descriptions for two-letter Type Groupings (e.g. ES__, I__P, _N_P, __TJ)

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Kiersey organised the sixteen types into four major groups, _S_J, _S_P, _NT_, and _NF_. Myers preferred to organise them as _ST_, _NT, _SF_, and _NF_. I've seen various nicknames applied to Kiersey's four groups and to the individual types, and descriptions of the groups' shared characteristics...
  20. [ENTJ] ENTJ asking to confirm my type due to possible type inconistencies

    ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Hello, everyone. I'm fairly certain that I'm an ENTJ though I still have some lingering doubts. My thought is that I'm an ENTJ with unusually well-developed Fi (the inferior function). To me, that seems to explain the totality of my behavior. But someone asked me to create a thread to confirm...
