“No escape from patterns and systems, no exits. Nothing, and no one, resides outside a system; that’s the way it is.”
Armed with powerful intellects and strategic minds, Architects (INTJs) can outmaneuver obstacles that seem unbeatable to most. But their strengths, when misunderstood, can turn into weaknesses – and keep them from reaching their full potential.
Those misunderstandings end here. What you have read so far is just an introduction – we have a great deal more to tell you about the Architect personality type.
In reading through this personality profile, you probably hit a tipping point. You went from trademark Architect skepticism to “Huh…” to “Wait, what?” You may even be a little uncomfortable, because you’re not used to being understood, even by the people closest to you.
Chances are you’ve accepted this as part of who you are and maybe even grown proud of it. But embracing that disconnect isn’t a requirement for Architects. It’s a misused defense mechanism, leading you down a lonely, inefficient path. Gaining insight into yourself and others is so much more rewarding – and effective.
At 16Personalities, we’ve spent years studying Architects’ life stories, experiences, and patterns through hundreds of our surveys. Step by step, insight by insight, we’ve discovered the challenges that people with your personality face – and how those challenges can be overcome.
Our specialized, research-based offerings for Architects can show you how to use your strengths and avoid common pitfalls – while also staying true to who you are. Because that’s the point, isn’t it? To see how you can grow into your full potential, in ways that make sense for you.
