I came across this on a feed that I could at least trace back to a company for credit. So time consuming, but so important, in my INTJ opinion.
I don’t think this is a problem for INTJ’s because we have a tendency to have all possible scenarios worked out in our head – and then some. It is the many other people that find the idea scary that we have already considered that an idea. I don’t consider my goals or dreams high reaching, by any means. But when I try to explain what I do or where my career path may lead, that is a concern for them. (Notice who it is a problem for…)
Sure, there is stuff that scares me – gives me nightmares! Like the thought of shopping at a large discount chain store during lunch hour, or on a weekend. Ok, anytime.
I shared with a relatively new friend what I use to go yacht shopping. (I lived near water, then.) In his INTJ way he puzzled over it but couldn’t process it – Why did I do that? Because I could, I explained. I wasn’t buying a yacht, just looking. I liked sailing and what better way to learn about the sailboats than to go in a someone purchasing the boat. He was honestly shocked and amazed. No logic, no sense to doing that.
To me, it was one less flame to fear, one less thing to worry about. More data in the databanks.(I realize I am interchanging yacht and sailboat. Sometime we looked at one, sometimes another – mostly very large sailboats. Maybe I better go back for some more “test drives.” )
What do you think? Odd for an INTJ? Do your ideas or dreams scare others?
