    INTJ Introverted Intuition with Thinking


    People with INTJ preferences are relentless innovators in thought as well as action. They trust their intuitive insights into the true relationships and meanings of things, regardless of established authority or popularly accepted beliefs. Their faith in their inner vision can move mountains. Problems only stimulate them--the impossible takes a little longer, but not much. They are the most independent of all the types, sometimes to the point of being stubborn. They place a high value on competence--their own and others'.

    Being sure of the worth of their inspirations, INTJs want to see them worked out in practice, applied and accepted by the rest of the world; they are willing to spend any time and effort to that end. They have determination, perseverance, and will drive others almost

    The Scientist


    As an INTJ, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you take things in primarily via your intuition. Your secondary mode is external, where you deal with things rationally and logically.


    INTJs live in the world of ideas and strategic planning. They value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in these regards, which they continuously strive to fulfill. To a somewhat lesser extent, they have similar expectations of others.


    With Introverted Intuition dominating their personality, INTJs focus their energy on observing the world, and generating ideas and possibilities. Their mind constantly gathers information and makes associations about it. They are tremendously insightful and usually are very quick to understand new ideas. However, their primary interest is not understanding a concept, but rather applying that concept in a useful way. Unlike ...

    People with the INTJ personality type have an enormous capacity for creativity. They can produce ideas about the world around them, making associations among dynamics that most other personality types miss. While others are confused by abstract ideas and new concepts, INTJs have a unique intuition that allows them to understand new ideas and conceptualize their results easily. They relate to the outside world thoughtfully, yet show little compulsion for thinking without action. Instead, INTJs prefer to take action to settle matters before moving on to other pursuits. Below, we'll explore their penchant for theory, fondness for applying their ideas, and a few inherent limitations.


    Appreciation For Theory
    Ideas come easily to INTJs. Not only do they understand unfamiliar concepts quickly, but they tend to form their own creative ideas and solutions to problems. This tendency is consistent with this type's appreciation for theory. In effect, while others around ...

    What does Success mean to an INTJ?

    People with the INTJ personality type are serious, analytical and perfectionistic. They look at a problem or idea from multiple perspectives and systematically analyze it with objective logic, discarding things that turn out to be problematic, and evolving their own understanding of something when new information turns out to be useful. There is no other personality type who does this as naturally as the INTJ. They are natural scientists and mathematicians. Once given an idea, they are driven to understand it as thoroughly as possible. They usually have very high standards for their own understanding and accomplishments, and generally will only value and consider other individuals who have shown that they meet or surpass the INTJ's own understanding on a given issue. INTJs value clarity and conciseness, and have little esteem for behaviors and attitudes that are purely social. Social "niceties" often seem unnecessary and perhaps ...

    Whatís it like to be you?
    I often feel I am missing something, that I have a perspective or viewpoint that isnít widely shared and that I am decades ahead of my time, maybe more. Itís like being caught in a time warp.

    I tend to be someone who looks at all the what-ifs, thinking way ahead with a vision of things and anticipating. Iím always interested in extending myself into areas I donít do well in. Iím a good problem solver from that perspective. I like to go through anything I can think of before I actóthe implications, what others have tried before and their effect, my options and their consequences, who to mobilize and in what time frame. I like coming up with new ideas about how to approach a situation until I find a solution that feels right. And I like to think that solution will be something that works for everyone. I experience problems as challenges, not as things that canít be dealt with or accomplished. Challenges can always be dealt with. ...

    Conceptualizer Director: INTJ

    Relationships
    INTJ is a type steeped in independence. Many of their relationships will develop slowly due to a perceived arrogance. In the family as well as all other fronts for the INTJ life can always be better. They expect people and performance to get better everyday, which means they ultimately become frustrated with others. A battle of wills within the family is not unexpected when INTJs are involved.

    The same need for improvement can make for difficult friendships with INTJs. They are slow in developing due to their perceived arrogance and will not tolerate stagnation. They enjoy learning through arguing or "friendly discussions" but these scenarios are often interpreted as obnoxious behavior.

    In love relationships the INTJ runs the risk of being misunderstood. They will challenge a mate to improve and view it as the ultimate act of love, to foster development. But INTJs need ...
