Refreshing to know this happens to men, too, not just INTJ females. This is also why I work for myself now.
 
Pronoun Problems

I'm curious to know if this bit of behavior from others grates on other +INTJ nerves. Here's the situation:

You spend an inordinate amount of time devising something, or solving something in excruciating detail. This is usually in a group setting, where you end up being the genesis of things. Now, the other people in that group aren't entirely certain what it is you're talking about but they get just enough of a gist about it to be excited for the potential.

Now whenever they present those things to others, the conversation gets rerouted into "our technology" and "our idea". But whenever they are pressed for something of substance that exceeds the script they already have from you, they say they'll get back to them with the answers. Of course, then they get back with you - since the only person that really does understand all of the logistics and context is you, and they ask you to provide those answers.

What happens then is that they go back with those answers and parrot them under the pronoun problem of "our answer is" or just forward everything verbatim from their perspective without the context that they deferred to you on the matter and this was the answer given.

So in the end, it's quite ambiguous as to who is really writing what, and everyone gets to sit under the "our" umbrella.

As an INTJ, I find myself simply saying that a single sentence to preface those verbatim answers would suffice -

Per your request, we were unable to offer the insights that you required at the time and so we deferred your questions to so-and-so who is responsible for that area. This is what they have to offer to the discussion:

To me, that's enough to keep everything in order and get rid of the deliberate ambiguity for who is doing what. But I've found that bringing that up gets very angry reactions, which to me seem completely unwarranted. Of course, stating other things that are blatantly obvious in a situation, but doing so in a calm manner, also garners this response - almost like I have the audacity to pull the curtain back and show the Wizard of Oz.

I could use a little advice about this from fellow INTJ, and if they've experienced similar situations.

That is profoundly good advice, loved it.

Super inspiring blog post today for those of us who find ourselves as culture creators. 
The success of your community, whether it is a physical community or an online community, depends on this small number of community champions. We can be creators in our own communities.

Do not miss Weiland's music video today.
 
Do NOT miss this video. Just skip my rambling and listen to the music. Proud to be a South Dakotan today. (Most days, but many days I'm too worried about how far our state needs to go.)

Always fun to see a champion of Indian Country attend events so vital to a tribal community. He didn't do it for the votes either.
 
Sen. Tim Johnson (SD-US) visits the Cheyenne River Youth Project. Johnson will be attending the rural water project groundbreaking ceremony later at the tribal college.

Pretty much.
 
Do you supplement your social media with online ads?
If not, why?
