INTJ Personality – Conclusion

Armed with a powerful intellect and strategic thinking, INTJs can overcome or outmaneuver obstacles that seem unbeatable to most. At the same time, their many quirks, such as often unconstrained rationalism, lead to many misunderstandings. 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 INTJ personality type.

At some point in reading through your results, you probably hit a tipping point. You went from trademark INTJ skepticism to “huh...” to “wait, what?” You may even be a little uncomfortable because you are really not used to being understood, even by the people you’re closest to.

Chances are, you’ve accepted that as part of who you are, and maybe even grown proud of it. But embracing that disconnection isn’t a requirement for INTJs. It’s a misused defense mechanism, leading you down a lonely, inefficient path – gaining insight into yourself and others is so much more rewarding.

Architect (INTJ) personality

This is no date-of-birth gimmick, and no, we did not spy on you – rather, we’ve spent years studying INTJs’ life stories, experiences, and patterns in hundreds of our surveys. Step by step, insight by insight, we discovered how those who share your qualities and outlook have overcome the challenges they’ve faced. You are a unique individual, but you are not alone in this. It’s wise to learn from others’ experiences – and we’d really like to share those insights with you.

As you move forward into the e-books and interactive courses we offer, we go much deeper into the INTJ mind. We answer not just “what”, but “why?”, “how?” and “what if?” Why do you act the way you do? How do you find motivation and inspiration? What if you moved beyond fear to pursue what you secretly want to achieve in life?

We can show you how to use your strengths to unlock your exceptional potential and avoid common pitfalls, while also staying true to who you are – after all, that’s the point. To see how you can grow to be the person you know you’re capable of being, in ways that finally feel right – read on.

Moving around a lot growing up I thought making friends was just hard for everyone but now I know why it was so difficult for me and why I don't like people in general, not bad at all for an accurate test.

Same here - a few hours before reading this I wasn't sure if I'm mad or not - I think about things in such a different way from others that I rarely bump into someone who can confirm my conclusions. It's lonely for sure. It's nice to rest your head on some certainties, like there are other people out there who came out the same way and to have all the good (and not so good) things laid out like this :). I moved around a lot too growing up, never lived in the same country let alone school for longer than a couple of years, had one hell of a turbulent adolescence. Probably does play a part in our development though, just this is the combination that came up!

Bad in social situations? Your only bad if you choose to be so. With practice, you are able to master anything.

Several writeups indicate that the INTJ's can "mask" their tendencies by learning techniques and behaviors to help them fit in better. Certainly we all develop coping mechanisms. People are often surprised that I'm not an extrovert, because after twenty years, I've struck a balance on forcing a certain level of extroversion on myself, and then taking a whole lot of me time to recuperate from the drain it causes. What is annoying is when people (including vast segments of my family) assume that I am depressed or lonely, when in fact I just need time away from all the stupid in the world. Which can include my family.

I feel you. Since INTJ s find solutions to every challenge they face, coping with people and being social is not a problem that can't be solved. But it takes a lot of energy. And to do this again needs recharging.

Yeah, I do the same thing. People have often mistaken me for shy. No, I just find people exhausting.

Being an INTJ can be difficult but I really don't care as long as I can retreat into the world of ideas and reason. I wish there were more women of my type in the small town I live in because my relationships here haven't lasted as long as I would like but ce le vie. But as long as there is good conversation about things that matter I am content.

I had the same problem with relationships I couldn't connect with anyone on an intellectual level. But then I found my current boyfriend who is extremely smart and we hit it off almost naturally which was a first for me been together three years. longest one ever. The only downfall is his constant need of coddling and emotional duress that never seems to cease. which is quite irritating.

Frighteningly accurate! Anybody else here who thinks we live in a parallel universe ruled by logic and common sense?
