I dont know if it is just me, but I can not stand soap operas. They are entirely too fake, cliche, and way too predictable. I can not relate to them. I do not feel at all as if I am in the same world as them. I don't feel for them. Do I feel this way because of my INTJ traits...or do I simply just not like soap operas?

Anyone else feel the same?

This should be an interesting topic... ****eats popcorn****

By the time a person runs a tally on an actress/actor the numbers become quite ridiculous:

1) Number of near death (out of body) experiences: 55
2) Number of break-ups a week: 23
3) Number of affairs: 76
4) The amount of people involved in these break- ups and affairs (with this actress/actor) per year: 6

(exaggerated for emphasis)

IMO it is much more entertaining to turn to the Latino channel and watch it in a language that one doesn't understand with a friend; then translate it out loud in your own "meaningful" subtitles... OMG the PASSION! :crazy:

Yes, same here. Same reasons.

You feel like that because of the reasons that you stated and you happen to be an INTJ. Probably many INTJ's don't like soaps, but it's not because they´re INTJ's. It's because of reasons as you stated. (Once you understand the difference between these 2 things, you'll be less obsessed with being an INTJ and you can be more just yourself.)

well... this is why i was wondering if it had anything to do with an INTJ... my friend is an enfj. she loves soaps. she's more of a feeler than i am. she relates better with other ppl... idk.. i thought that maybe since she is an xxFx...that maybe that is why soaps appeal to her more.

Yes, soaps definitely try to create feelings in the viewers. It's so obvious that it is annoying and it's often the kind of behaviour that we INTJ's find awful. Besides that, the soap actors and actresses aren't the best ones that exist and they don't spend months preparing for an episode.

We notice all those little details. Many people and especially many F's don't have a problem with these little details being wrong. So it doesn't bother them.

But we love the discovery channel, and they don't. :happy:

I cannot stand soaps.

There are good dramatic shows out there. Mad Men is one of the few drama's on TV that is worth watching right now.

I find soaps to be strangely entrancing in a "why is everybody so stupid?" kind of way.

I like a lot of Dramas (like House M.D. and Criminal Minds) but not soaps. To me Soap Operas are like softcore skinemax flicks without the porn.
