My soul mate (and I didnt believe in soul mates til I got hit over the head with him!) and bestie is an INTJ and I think he is the most beautiful creature ever, inside and out. How can anyone generalize and say NT's are ugly? Or any type for that fact. ugly/beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The following quote has got to be my most favorite quote all year long:

“I mean if you just look inside the brain, it…..a very complicated organ but it’s 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses so a lot of neurons talking to each other but just take it down to one neuron right, it’s looking for an input and once it gets the input it fires and that firing causes another neuron to fire and that’s how the brain works, right, how do you get conscious will, freewill into that system, it’s just inputs and outputs on a vast massive scale where we’re incorporating lots of information and we’re making simulations and calculations but it’s all happening in neurons right there’s nothing directing the neurons there’s no ghost-in-the-machine that’s telling the neurons how to behave and each individual neuron isn’t a mind where it says, you know I’m not gonna fire this time I’m deciding not to fire right, that’s what the brain is so it’s hard knowing that’s how things work how do you get in a conscious choice into that?” – Dr. Thalia Wheatley, from the Youtube video “Alan Alda gets hypnotized” between approximately 9 minutes and 20 seconds and 10 minutes and 19 seconds.

“There is something within me that might be illusion as it is often case with young delighted people, but if I would be fortunate to achieve some of my ideals, it would be on the behalf of the whole of humanity. If those hopes would become fulfilled, the most exiting thought would be that it is a deed of a Serb.” - Nikola Tesla

“Out of this war, the greatest since the beginning of history, a new world must be born, a world that would justify the sacrifices offered by humanity. This new world must be a world in which there shall be no exploitation of the weak by the strong, of the good by the evil; where there will be no humiliation of the poor by the violence of the rich; where the products of intellect, science and art will serve society for the betterment and beautification of life, and not the individuals for achieving wealth." - Nikola Tesla

Still think INTJs are all "evil?" ;)

Yes, the INTJ female actually does exist because dominant Ni is not totally masculine as it can be quite dreamy. ENTJ females on the other hand might not actually exist at all because dominant Te is completely masculine.

I really admire the internet dictionary’s definition of what “dreamy” means as well as the thesaurus:

1. Resembling a dream; ethereal or vague.
2. Given to daydreams or reverie.
3. Soothing and serene.
4. Informal Inspiring delight; wonderful.

1. vague or impractical
2. resembling a dream in quality
3. relaxing; gentle: dreamy music.
4. wonderful
5. having dreams, esp daydreams

1. of the nature of or typical of dreams; visionary.
2. vague; dim.
3. inducing dreams or a dreamlike mood, esp. pleasantly: dreamy music.
4. given to daydreaming or reverie.
5. abounding in dreams.
6. wonderful; marvelous: a dreamy new car.

1. vague, abstracted, absent, musing, preoccupied, daydreaming, faraway, pensive, in a reverie, with your head in the clouds. His face assumed a dreamy expression.
2. relaxing, calming, romantic, gentle, soothing, lulling a dreamy, delicate song
3. starry-eyed, romantic, sentimental, utopian, quixotic, over-optimistic He's like some dreamy kid
4. impractical, vague, imaginary, speculative, visionary, fanciful, quixotic, dreamlike, airy-fairy full of dreamy ideals

1. Given to daydreams or reverie:
moony, visionary, woolgathering.
2. Informal. Particularly excellent:
divine, fabulous, fantastic, fantastical, glorious, marvelous, sensational, splendid, superb, terrific, wonderful.
Informal: dandy, great, ripping, super, swell, tremendous.
Slang: cool, groovy, hot, keen, neat, nifty.
Idiom: out of this world.

Ethereal is defined as follows:

1. Extremely light or delicate: "An ant lion ... is lovely, long-bodied like a damselfly, with a pair of ethereal wings" (Jennifer Ackerman).
2. a. Of the celestial spheres; heavenly.
b. Spiritual or otherworldly.

And yes, there would technically be a difference between an INTJ female and an INTJ male as the biological composition of those two may be slightly different.
