We both enjoyed bike riding (admittedly, not a shocker in Brooklyn), were united in our distaste for veggies, and shared a love of junk food that would rival that of any teenager.
The evening had entered phase “banter foreplay” when out of nowhere he asked, “So, what’s your Myers-Briggs personality type?
If they think you're not worth their time, they won't try to push you away, they'll just completely ignore you.
INTJs enjoy thinking about theories, and tearing them to bits, not because they disrespect them, but because they like pointing out what would work and what wouldn't.
I have a working theory that every type in the Myers-Briggs system is integral to social ecology.
INTJs are direct, and if they have a problem with you, they will tell you.
Commonly called "The Scientist." Often seen as arrogant, aloof, or haughty, but in fact, INTJ's just don't give a shit what you think about them.
They value facts and logic above all else, and scorn illogical reasoning.
When we’re trying to figure out our own type it can be difficult when two (or more) types fill a relatively similar role in society.
I mentioned in the article about INFPs vs INFJs that these two types are here to help us gain greater emotional intelligence, but they do so in slightly different (and necessary) ways. Both types blow me away with their ability to manage extraordinary amounts of information while trying to avoid cognitive biases.
