Why people with an INTJ hate the culture!
“Don’t just follow the crowd but think for yourself so you can be yourself while being passionate and committed at what you do and believe.” – Steve (that would be me)
In today’s world, following the crowd means that you go for the most popular thing to do, which quickly loses its luster when someone comes up with something more exciting else to follow. *nudging all people with an ESFP personality*
After studying the INTJ personality and people who have this personality like me, I’ve realized this belief is at our very core, which is why we are filled with repugnance (disgust) for people who follow the crowd and don’t think…causing us if we’re honest with the world to hate the culture since it is “the root” of why people are trapped with this idiotic mentality.
America’s culture is the worst of all thinking that whatever they believe is correct. Whatever you hear, don’t trust it right away! Think carefully if it makes sense and look it up! I don’t care about the media of America. They say that Russia, China, North Korea, and other Communist countries are the only countries that only give their citizens what they (government) what them to hear but I’ve found out that the United States is sort of the same way. If I watch the news, then I always watch BBC’s News programs since they seem to discuss all of the events…plus, I just like hearing their accents. 😛
Anyway, everything you hear or see should be questioned. Don’t just accept it! According to the 16personalities and I totally agree with this, it says that “At times it will seem that INTJs are bent on deconstructing and rebuilding every idea and system they come into contact with.” This is very true! Many people just except ideas but an INTJ will test that idea many times over and over. Even when that idea has been proven true by them, they will come back to it at a later time and test it again. You ever wonder why people with my personality don’t have a problem with discussing those controversial topics? We are constantly testing them and talking to others and we use and test the information that we receive from those people.
Anyone who says something, needs to stand up for what they believe…if they can’t, then they shouldn’t talk to someone as strong I am in my opinions. Yes, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the meaningless things of life (it doesn’t take me long to realize those things) so I think about all of those other deep subjects. “Anyone who doesn’t have the talent to keep up with INTJs’ processes, or worse yet, doesn’t see the point of them, is likely to immediately and permanently lose their respect.” This is very true as well!
Rules, limitations and traditions are anathema to the INTJ personality type – everything should be open to questioning and reevaluation, and if they see a way, INTJs will often act unilaterally to enact their technically superior, sometimes insensitive, and almost always unorthodox methods and ideas.
People just like to accept what they want to hear (this is called the Misinformation Effect) or they just accept it so they can move on with their life not thinking about the consequences of what those amazing answers could show. People with my personality don’t necessarily need you to actually believe what we do, just think about it and look at all of the angles. If you do this, you will have a huge amount of respect!
