I'm very interested in reading a lot more about INTJ and INFJ types. Can anyone recommend an author

When I was 28 I'd paid off my house and was running a main-frame computer for an oil&gas company. With no training or formal qualifications I was doing ok. But then I got into a relationship and had two kids. I quit that job just before 2nd child was born. 20 years later I've lost the house but gained a divorce. Now I find out I've got an INTJ personality with an INFJ partner who is a senior lecturer at a University. I've got work with a big mining company and its the best money I've ever earned. However I'm just driving a great big haulpak truck and while I get paid well I hate the job and know I'll have to leave soon.
I've got some big decisions to make soon and thought a little INTJ / INFJ reading might help me

Hi J, Did you make those decisions you were talking bout? I'd love to know how you got on?
I have been there....
I had a senior job trouble shooting for a health agency. Finding out all the gory details, until it ruined me. I had my children, life deteriorated.....not because of the children but because of a poor choice in the personality pairing with their father.
I'm now with my new partner who is a Prof at a University and he lets me go crazy, as I call it. I get to put my plans into action and watch these projects support us financially. I can now raise and provide for my children all whilst 'staying' at home. I have to say I am often really busy at times in my role as the 'Mastermind'. Love it!!

I have a YouTube channel discussing INTJ's, and I strongly recommend the "Please Understand ME II" By David Keirsy because it's in depth about ALL the types, including INTJ and INFJ.

My INTJ YouTube channel is MBTigress if you are interested in checking it out.

I strongly recommend you read the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. I have a strong suspicion he's an INTJ, and his contribution to the science fiction community is staggeringly exquisite.

Ayn Rand was a INTJ. Her most famous book was "Atlas Strugged." I have read it and think it would give you insight into INTJ.
