Here's a strength! I was friends with the homecoming queen. She liked my boyfriend and tried many times to bang him. One day she felt bad and called me crying and said "why don't you hate me?" I said "What? hate can give me wrinkles!" She laughed ...Since we have a thread dedicated to our faults as INTJs, let's bring some positivity and talk about our strengths! So my fellow INTJs, What are your strengths that you recognize in yourself? How do you utilize and optimize your strengths?
So you decided to keep a friend who was trying to get a rise out of you and betray you? Seems to me like you're just keeping her around for the Apple goods. Guess you gotta get something materialistic out of it after the headache she tried to cause.Here's a strength! I was friends with the homecoming queen.

I have the ability to ignore irrational human emotions and keep friends that I think I might be able to utilize in the future. She is very scucessful and works for Apple. Plus I get to aviod drama. That must count for something ... Plus I just always liked her regardless. I keep friends despite drama. I have many friends that I love.
Sorta but not really. She's a good person from the inside I think. She just needed to find herself ...So you decided to keep a friend who was trying to get a rise out of you and betray you?

Cool! I did it as well and mine was:I did go through an exercise called "Strengths Finder 2.0" that listed these 5 strengths for me:
Learner - People strong in the Learner theme have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.
Achiever - People strong in the Achiever theme have a great deal of stamina and work hard. They take great satisfaction from being busy and productive.
Responsibility - People strong in the Responsibility theme take psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.
Intellection - People strong in the Intellection theme are characterized by their intellectual activity. They are introspective and appreciate intellectual discussions.
Strategic - People strong in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.
As for how I optimize these, part of this is seeing where these overlap or combine to some extent. Learner and Strategic both involve alternative ways of doing things so that can be using both strengths in finding other ways to do things. Achiever and Responsibility dovetail together so that if I say I'll do something, it gets carried through as I do both follow on what I say and work hard to achieve what I want. I enjoy pondering different views on something and seeing different ways that things could work. For example, if someone wants to know what kinds of reactions may happen in a situation, that is the kind of meaty question I enjoy discussing and seeing where a conversation may go.
Alternatively, looking at my Enneagram type of 1w2, the strength there is that I have high standards and seek to meet them, often helping others in the process. If one can temper a perfectionistic attitude so that it is kept in check, there are some great things these tendencies can create. I'm not sure how useful this is to state here, but it is something I think may be useful to discuss here.
All perfect from The Waffle, I would just add for myself:1. I am rational.
2. I can spot BS from a mile away.
3. I think before I act and speak.
4. I can get things done quickly and efficiently.
5. My willingness to learn.
6. I am extremely loyal to the people I care about.
7. I have very high standards and goals for myself.
8. I am not clingy.
9. I don't need other people around to entertain myself.
10. I give good advice.
