I think the "refusing to apologize for it" reflects the conflict. It's not so much that INTJ females are conflicted about who they are or how they should be as that they are aware of not complying with traditional gender stereotypes and, because of this, sometimes find those who expect them to conform to be put out by their lack of conformity. The INTJ female isn't conflicted about who she is, but many of the people she will interact with will experience a conflict, one the INTJ usually refuses to play into. INTJs in general will feel both annoyed and perplexed when they are cast as "wrong" for behaving reasonably and rationally. So the conflict, is much more about having to deal, or steadfastly refuse to deal, with other people's expectations rather than being at odds with the INTJs own principles. INTJs defining characteristic is personal integrity, which by definition precludes internal conflict because ideals and actions are in complete harmony.

Great to hear from you Chloe. My favorite friends turned out to be INTP, ENTP, INFJ, INFP, ENFP with INTJ coming in last. The problem with other INTJs is that after we get over the initial novelty of finding someone who agrees with us, we get bored. I mean, who wants to read a bunch of stuff we already thought and get agreed with all the time? Not the INTJ.

The thing I've learned from this blog is that INTJs are mostly attracted to ENTP types and a few others, but as much as we like ourselves, any two INTJs together is only awesome in theory. In reality, we spend so much time agreeing with each other and saying exactly what the other person is thinking, that once the novelty wears off, we're actually quite bored.
