Dear member of INTJ:

I bit off more than I could chew when I decided to start this community and I now must bow out due to outside commitments. I'm not sure what to do with the community. I don't want to kill it just because I'm leaving. If anyone would like to take control of this community please contact me. The present mods get first dibs but I'm willing to give control over to people other than them. The main point is that I will be removing my email from the contact email field and I need a contact to replace it with.

Sorry.

Morality

Let me first point out that I tend to use the word "morality" for a belief system, while I tend to use the word "ethics" for a code of conduct.

I think it is important to develop a sense of how things should be. I believe that one's "morality" is something that needs to evolve, but should have some sort of firm grounding that allows a sense of continuity. There are in fact multiple reasons for this. I do not think that you can develop something with too much elasticity and really get anywhere over time. I also think that what other people see had better be somewhat consistent or they will get all confused and effective exchange is hindered. (I note that what other people see is more through the "ethics" level, but I would like to assume that these two levels were related.)

I think that "morality" is not something that comes out of a vacuum, but is actually something that strives to achieve something [which I am not going to attempt to describe in this post right now]. As such, it is not something that ought to be at all static, so a willingness to continue to think and really consider alternatives, and revise with an open mind, are positive traits in my book.

I do think there are several levels of "shielding" related to this: ones ethics are probably less quickly changed than ones morality (to avoid misunderstanding and conflicts arising our of a sense of betrayal etc.), and ones morality is not quick to change at all, but only after careful consideration. Considering ideas, however, is always good, and the potential to find a completely unorthodox method of making sure that what is really important (that underlies all these systems) and the incisiveness to be willing to implement those if it really did matter that much, I consider a strength.

I am not sure in how far this is an "INTJ point of view", but I think that INTJs could be more likely to successfully work through this.

Amoral?

In a podcast I'm following (succeedinevil.com) the main character is an INTJ (I'm certain of it) and has been described as "being able to do anything if he had a reason to do it". The author sees this as a scary concept but I'm not sure if I agree.

True, it means that such a person would do horrible things if there was a reason to do them but it also means that they could be reasoned out of a line of action wherein someone who was going on conviction and emotion might not be able to be talked out of it.

What do you think?

If you want to introduce yourself...

Who are you?
What type are you (if different than INTJ)?
How did you discover MBTI?
Do you have a plan for world domination? (It's better than asking you what type of tree you are.)

I had a conversation with an ex-boyfriend (ENFP) a few weeks back wherein he told me he had to learn that others aren't like him (except me, I've always been alien to him). I, on the other hand, have always felt like the only human in a world full of aliens.

How do you see others? How do you relate to them?

Do you think the characteristic sense of alienation that many INTJs experience is due to not meeting many other INTJs early in life and as a result not having our world view and way of thinking validated?

I realize that it is going to be quiet around here until we hit critical mass of members (sometime after April 30th) but in the meantime I have a few questions for those of you who are here now.

What would you like to see in this comm? Link suggestions for the "link list"? Do you have any suggestions for the profile page? Icons? Eventually, what layout and/or customization (when we get something that doesn't suck as an option)?

We have an almost blank slate here and I'm open to suggestions.

Note: I've added us to [site community profile] dw_community_promo and I'm trying to convince the mod there to add a "personality type" or "psychology" link but I'm not encountering much success.

Welcome
