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.

I am having fun reading all the comments. Seeing so much of myself in them and in the profile itself. Still struggling with finding the right job for myself though. Most people think I am shy because I prefer to work alone and don't do well with your usual chit chat. I just see it as an extreme waste of time especially at work....but then lunches seem to be a bore too....I would much rather work my 8 hours and go home to my dogs and my partner. At 36 is when I finally found someone who "gets me". Either way....good to know there is a place I can go to and feel less like an outcast :)

Are you sure you want to find an "organized group or community"?! Are you sure you're an INTJ? I'd rather stay at home with a good book or chew off my own leg than attend an organized group function.

I know I should feel proud of the fact that being an intj woman, I'm unique. ... like we constitute only 0. 8% of the world's population. But at times I get sick and tired of not finding anyone who understands me and my ideas. My friends find me weird. In fact , a guy once told me that I give out evil vibes. Lawl. And I'm a sucker at relationships , be it with my parents or friends. I come across as insensitive , but it isn't true. I do care. And being a loner sucks. Wish I'd find someone compatible.

I also have trouble finding people who are capable too. It's so hard to find people with the T trait, most people operate on emotions. Being an insensitive and emotionally detached person on a world of "squishies" is hard.

This was awesome being able to read all these comments and realize that there really is someone else like me in the world! (Although it is rare with only .8% other INTJ females). I found that this described me very well. I wish I could meet more of you INTJs in real life!

I think for me I am fortunate enough to have a twin sister who is also an INTJ, so I never felt the isolation that so many others seem to have felt. Having a twin means I already had a built-in playmate; so not wanting to play with dumb kids wasn't as hard because my twin felt the same and we would just play together. It did make things difficult even among intellectual contemporaries, most of them yearned to be accepted so they did not understand our (my twin and myself) yearning to be left alone. I do tend to attract people to me without trying which is annoying. I have this standoffish personality because I genuinely do not enjoy the company of others. People find this intriguing for some reason. I do have a good filtering process in place so only the worthy pass, but it does not make the others stop trying.
