    [–] Anyone else have a hyper realistic imagination? PM_me_Venn_diagrams 17 points ago in intj

    Not really because I want to lead, but because everyone else is incompetent.

    This. This so fucking much.

    [–] Anyone else have a hyper realistic imagination? PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in intj

    As I replied to someone else, there is an absolute shitload of INTJs at the top of the music charts.

    For instance, the head of the Wu Tang Clan is GZA, who is an INTJ nicknamed "The Genius" by the rest of the clan. Tom Petty was an INTJ. So is Eric Clapton, Seal, Moby, and Chris Cornell(was). The brains behind Led Zepplin, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Fleetwood Mac, and about two dozen other bands/singers are INTJs.

    I think INTJs really underestimate how much that field is dominated by INTJs, despite our love of music.

    Music is incredibly complex, and there are actually quite a few successful INTJs.

    I'm not sure I would call it that, but very accurate.

    Example?

    Two aircraft crashes, one that broke the aircraft in half on its maiden flight and dumped the pilot's body on the airfield in front of the whole crowd, and the second was a race plane that was essentially built using incomplete blueprints of an untested aircraft from the 1940s.

    In both cases they were encouraged by fellow engineers who essentially said "they're engineers, you're not, they automatically must know what they are doing".

    Also called the fall of Enron and the rise of GE and Tesla/SpaceX.

    I also started my own business by breaking off of my employer and doing what they refused to even consider. My last contract was one of their best former customers. So it worked out pretty good.

    But these aren't even good examples. This is Amateur mode. Elon Musk is an INTJ himself, and there are quite a few immensely talented INTJs. Musk often talks about his hyper realistic nightmares of problems that can occur with products.

    Most surprisingly, James Cameron is an INTJ. He shows incredibly detailed imagination that brings his movies to life. His imagination is perfectionist and hyper realistic. He even updated the stars in Titanic after being told they were inaccurate for the time.

    The list goes on and on. Tesla, Nash, Newton, Rand, Hawking, Zuckerburg, Asimov...

    Having hyper accurate imagination was key to all of them succeeding.

    ENTJs can be similar if they really concentrate on their technical skills. Werner Von Braun was a prime example. But they can also be massive obnoxious pieces of crap as well. There doesn't seem to be much in between.

    [–] Interesting method of trans PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in GTAorRussia

    Definitely not a Mig-25. Almost certainly a Mig-23 due to the nose shape AND HAVING ONLY ONE TAIL. The Mig-25 is also too heavy for a Mi-26, as its empty weight is 44,000lbs... exactly the maximum capacity of the Mi-26, leaving no weight for fuel. Fully fueled, its going to be several thousand pounds overweight.

    [–] How to get rid of 99% of sh*t recruiters. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in recruitinghell

    I dont get why any salesperson would do this. Not only will they lose the contract, theyll lose any further business they could have had by being honest.

    Its almost like there might be a reason they cant get a real job...

    [–] INTJs, describe your parents PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in intj

    Very similar here. Mother was a narcissist, father was very nice but incompetent and generally not around.

    [–] INTJs, describe your parents PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in intj

    Hands off and narcissistic. But not well taken care of.

    [–] "Do I look like an idiot!?" PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago in intj

    Its an inhaler. It also has directions. Its pretty clear how its supposed to be used.

    [–] Is it me or are all INTJ’s underracters. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 31 points ago in intj

    This is my main issue with the general public. It comes across as unstable.

    When people say Autistic people dont understand how to deal with social situations, it makes me laugh. Because "normal" people are soooo much better at getting along, right?

    No, they bicker and fight constantly over the pettiest things. Just look at the comment section on many reddit subs. A shitload of people are unstable, jump to conclusions, and unwilling to compromise.

    And people wonder why so many people want nothing to do with being normal. Or why many Autistic people dont want to be "cured".

    Why would someone want to willingly be like that?

    [–] TIL The Black Panthers started what later became U.S.'s School Breakfast Program which feeds nearly 13 million students every day. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 4 points ago in todayilearned

    Ya, because we all know none of our own people ever kill. Those Aryan brotherhood people are just as gentle as can be. Right?

    And we just got along fine in the early 20th Century, with those two world wars and tens of millions of people killed.

    But a few angry black people killed a few people, so apparently the whole organization is bad now.

    [–] Does anyone else respect villains more than heroes? PM_me_Venn_diagrams 13 points ago in intj

    Ya, Speer built Hitler's headquarters while he was actually using it, rotating the workers through the building, and getting it done in just a year. Hitler was like "Holy Shit, this guy is good" and appointed him to war minister after the previous minister died in a plane crash.

    If you look at production numbers from when Speer came to office and compare them to the next 3 years, its mind blowing. Even after the USAAF started bombing the shit out of them, production soared.

    He was so effective that the King Tiger tank actually cost less than the Tiger I. And the Panther cost less than its predecessors. The man was incredibly effective at making things efficient.

    His guards reported that he survived prison by imagining his dream home. They felt bad that he would never be able to build it.

    He did. And he retired in it afterwards.

    Did I mention his former slaves helped him in prison because they credited him with diverting them from concentration camps? They snuck him supplies and he wrote his memoirs with them.

    That alone says a lot about him. That even his former slaves looked up to him.

    [–] TIL that the infamous "balloon boy" hoax may have genuinely been a legitimate mistake. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 2 points ago in todayilearned

    The guy actually did some legitimate inventing. Ended up creating a crane for pickups that rolls out over your cargo, lifts it up, and then rolls back into the bed with the cargo.

    I'm astonished I haven't seen one in real life yet, it's a brilliant idea.

    [–] Falcon Heavy has a successful launch!! PM_me_Venn_diagrams 2 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago) in space

    I just screamed repeatedly inside a salt mine. Everyone is looking at me like I am slightly more crazy than usual.

    At least I'm not going to be drug tested this time, like I was when I tried to tell them I saw a Virgin Mothership fly over me in the Mohave desert at like 500 feet and land.

    [–] TIL a nautical phenomenon known as "dead water" can occur when fresh water settles on top of salt water without mixing and can reduce a ship with a propeller to 20% of its normal speed. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 1 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in todayilearned

    It would still slow it down. The reason there is more drag is because the fresh water is less dense and so the ship sits deeper in the water to get the same buoyancy. It gets buoyancy from the mass of water it displaces.

    Salt water is much more dense than fresh water, so ships have to displace less water if they are in salt water in order to get the same buoyancy.

    The drive systems also reduce effective power by the same exact amount because it's moving less mass of water,, so it both drags more and pushes less.

    And lastly, in an attempt to overcome the drag, turning up the power may cavitate the props and make them even less effective. Especially if the ship is unloaded, this is much more likely.

    [–] TIL a soldier's home was foreclosed on by his HOA over unpaid dues totalling $800. While he was in Iraq. PM_me_Venn_diagrams 210 points ago in todayilearned

    Actually, Texans are by far the most likely group of Americans to support this kind of thing.

    "You should have known better" is basically the unofficial catch phrase of Texas, and youll hear it even in cases like this.

    For example "Its not their fault, he should have known better and paid up front".

    Real example.
