When I discovered MBTI and my type, I was like: "Oh! Cool! There isn't anything wrong with me, I am just rare, there are a lot of people like me, I am not alone!". But then I started to search more info about INTJs, and then I found in sites like tumblr people saying: "Oh, I am an INTJ androgineus/genderfluid/queer/pansexual/omnisexual/transgender/bisexual/aromantic/asexual/demisexual/demiromantic/otherkin/a snowflake trapped in the body of a human, HOW SPECIAL I AM?". INTJ wanting so hard to be unique, like begging for attention, which is very distant of my perception of being part of a personality statically rare.

Examples:
The INTJ Explained
The INTJ Explained
(Her responses are lovely nihilists)


The responses in the INTJ group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OfficialINTJ/344926259036741

Yes, people claiming to be INTJ and asking for attention, just trying to be the more "unique" possible. This phenomenon happens also with the "INFJ" too. Take this poor needy guy for example: INFJ Death Stare Meme | Know Your Meme

Why people wants to do this? They are INTJ? I always though that our types hates this kind of attention. If it isn't an INTJ, which kind of person would try to be so hard to be a "special snowflake"?

For more information of this kind of people, I recommend you to watch Tumblrism: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1tSBZx2ZvvuvfC8VlBznTxNx31CnTzTq (Specially the Otherkin, headmates and Cis Scum)

I think Tumblr culture tends to draw in the neurotic and the personality disordered. These posts seem quite narcissistic. Either way these people have too much time on their hands because they chose to sit at home and navel-gaze rather than step outside and interact with other people, gain some actual experience and cure their tunnel vision.

The Culture of Superiority.

I should write a book on it. How often and subtly we look for ways to place ourselves above others in some way. Whether it's through blatant arrogance, or it's under the guise of humility, or even analysis...

That sounds very ironic...

That message in OP gave me shudders.

I roleplay on Tumblr quite often but when it comes to social matters or things mentioned in OP I don't take anyone seriously. Bluntly speaking, the majority of people in those communities are there because they are miserable and other miserable people enable them to believe that their misery is justified and excused. "I hate people, I have trouble with society everyone sucks and no one understands me." "Really? Wow, I have the same problem! Yeah there's nothing wrong with you, everyone else is just lame!"

I'm not exaggerating. It's actually very worrisome to think that so many people are ignoring self-growth and understanding in favor of simply believing that their own unhappiness is the cause of other people. I am willing to bet firstly that a lot of them are mistyped, and secondly that they are only using it to further excuse their negative outlook. I have actually had people tell me, "I will probably say things that will upset you, please understand that I am what is known as an 'INTJ' which is why I act like this, so I can't really change."

I have a lot of feelings on this subject.

Anyone with Fi is going to inevitably find themselves measured on the special snowflake spectrum. INFP's being the highest and ISTJ's being the lowest.

From specialist snowflake to least specialist snowflake:

INFP ENFP ESFP ISFP ENTJ INTJ ESTJ ISTJ

IMO.
I just gave you a like because I love your signature.

Back to the point... are not the INFJ the ones with the Messiah complex? Thinking that they are the choosen one?

Fi is more concerned about identity whereas Fe is more concerned about humanity. Why would you give up your actual, genuine emotions and values for something as artificial and people-pleasing as Fe? I hear this a lot from Fi users.

Special snowflake syndrome is all about ME and INFJ's are some of the most people oriented types I know. Some of them don't even seem to have an identity because they're so focused on other people instead of themselves. Most of them don't view themselves as messiahs, because what they're doing just comes natural to them. Other types tend to view them as such.

I'm glad you like the signature ^^

Seriously, this is Fi-stereotyping.
