Reflections For All Seasons
The blog of a twenty something year old INTJ.
❝ Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being. ❞

— Albert Camus, The Rebel

❝ I am hopelessly in love with a memory.
An echo from another time, another place. ❞
❝ So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. ❞
snowystranger :  Got another for you. Noticed you told that you seem to be stubborn sometimes as am I. So I wonder if this is common for INTJ to be fairly stubborn and not changing their mind until something is proved incorrect to INTJ? And not even always then.

intj-thoughts:

I think that this is a typical INTJ thing. We value informations based on how well the research has been done and we usually don’t trust every information easily.

Additionally we tend to rely a lot on our own views, because we ourselves see them as rational and therefore way more appropriate and “true” than informations coming from others. Which is why we don’t easily let go of our opinions, if the whole discussion is about an issue we know a lot about. As I have mentioned so very often in my answers so far: INTJs know what they know. This also means that we can accept informations of others more easily, if we don’t know anything about the issue, but as soon as we know something and we know that it’s proven to be right, we won’t give in quite so easily.

Yours,

Sandra

❝ There are some things about myself that I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail, the whole thing gets scary. And if I get scared, I can only think about myself. I become really self-centered, and without meaning to, I hurt people. So I’m not such a wonderful human being. ❞

— Haruki Murakami (via psych-facts)

❝ For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again. ❞

— F. Scott Fitzgerald  (via makelvenotwar)

What good does being judgmental do?

I think all it does is build resentment. No one feels good when you give them that look or when you talk to them in that tone.

People are too quick to judge things that they don’t understand.

Come back down to earth. You ought to learn how to see life in ways different than your own point of view.
