So, apparently INTJs make up like 2% of the population. Anybody out there?

Yep, here's one! And plus I'm a girl, which is even rarer to find. Well then, are there any other females apart from me?

dantelidium says...

I'm a girl too, despite my user name. And I am INTJ. They said all four trait were about 99% accurate. Lol. No wonder, i have always been a weirdo.

Guest (not verified) says...

Yes, I am an INTJ too :).

Guest (not verified) says...

I'm a girl and an INTJ as well. Nice to know the other 0.5-1% is indeed out there. :) This test is pretty spot on. I really have been wondering why connecting with others is hard or why I have a hard time explaining my thought process.

sammydoh says...

Not that I know of. Maybe one will come along. Haven't seen one before this

Hello Laujeanne.

sammydoh says...

Wow! That's weird. So why is there only the female gender 'out there?'
Are the men just more introverted? Or do they not want to admit it?

pmorgaine says...

Female INTJ here.

sammydoh says...

So, first person who replied. YES

Phoenix Morgaine (not verified) says...

Sammydoh, I'm learning that it takes a certain type of topic to get INTJ's to talk, lol!Check out the FB page Real INTJ.

dantelidium says...

Lol, if what they say is true about us. We need to talk ISSUES.

sammydoh says...

ASD! I'm going to put this thing in the refuse receptacle.

Phoenix Morgaine (not verified) says...

Same here.

Hello,

Male from South Florida.... When did everyone find out their personality? years? I found out maybe a year 1/2, actually found out by mistake watching a TED speaker (Susan Cain) that is an Introvert and from there got me curious. Read her book, and in summary Understanding who you are can really make a difference in your life. Glad I did, too bad was not earlier in life.

Cheers

I'm twelve tested about 5 weeks ago.

Two wrongs are like a U-turn. You need THREE wrongs to make a right.

I am a female INTJ. I don't think I feel superior to others. People who like to get along with other people like me. People who have to spread rumours and make trouble don't like me. I can attract a man if I want to, but haven't wanted to for quite some time. Am more on the mystical side of life, and mystics of course crave practicality. I sure Saint Teresa of Avila says somewhere she'd rather have one good scrubber than ten mystics any day. If u want to know more free download Evelyn Underhill's Mysticism. Can't see what I'm typing as on kindle fire HDX and site has not been adapted to that yet.

Hello SAMMYDOH we are around although if they are anything like me I know I am quite reserved most of the time and would much rather have my attention on a book or something that furthers my knowlege than put myself in the spotlight or participate in social norms.

Knowledge is power.

Jay.

Cool. I agree completely.

Debi (not verified) says...

Also agree. Hello from Maine.

dantelidium says...

I just want to say that I am proud to be a INTJ, especially since they sugar coated it and said that women are rare in that personality. I've never been too girly, maybe that is why. I'm sure all of you are proud too, because that's just who we are. I wish I could meet more people like me, but to be honest we probably wouldn't get along with each other. At least not at first. Two introverts who like to think instead of act or talk and are very strong willed decision makers. Sounds like boring or possibly trouble.

legojack88 says...

Where, Perhaps, would I be most likely to find an INTJ in the United States (namely in the state of Arkansas)? Being the only INTJ I know, I was thinking maybe I could find another INTJ, perhaps to exchange thoughts and befriend he or she.

charlenejallison says...

British female INTJ here living in the Scandinavian realm of Denmark....

An under-challenged school teacher who turned 50 in February (Jackpot: not only INTJ but also Aquarius, making life even more interesting)...
I seem to be hugely popular amongst my students. They know me as a force to be reckoned with and tell tales of 'strange mystical powers' my eyes possess that 'mesmerise children into obedience without the utterance of a single word'....

On a social note: It has taken me many a year to find out why I always seem to be The Alien In The Room...

You will find a lack of INTJ's in everyday life, but you certainly won't find a shortage of us on the internet. It's like our perfect way of communicating. You only talk to who you want to talk to, and there's no crazed energy bounding around the room trying to wipe you out. I've seen some people criticize how many people on the internet claim to be INTJ, but I'm really not surprised. it's the perfect place for us.

That being said, I have met three other INTJ's in real life (Two of them fellow females!), but it was while I was at college, so I suppose that makes sense. One was a teacher, and such a marvelous lady.

I am a female; I tested as an INTJ, along with my late husband. I had a really stable marriage. It would probably seem dull to lots of others, but it was stable.

Now I'm in a relationship with an ENTP. I see that's supposed to be the optimal pairing, but the way he sees the world is really odd; not based in reality some of the time. At least, not based in the rational world's reality. I have learned not to respond to some statements.

I would like to say I reached my potential in life, but I can't say that. Lacking guidance, I sort of fell into my career (graphic production -- not design) but I am good at the technical part. I have no skills at office politics, so I am still at the bottom of the heap. I only have a few years till retirement, so I am looking to start a new career teaching yoga. BTW, I highly recommend the practice to all you other INTJs. You may learn how to be more in the present, and it will engage your mind as you explore your bodies capabilities. Try it.

I would also advise most of you young INTJs to look into jobs/careers where you can work for yourself. My late husband was a land surveyor, which is very technical now, and gives you a lot of freedom. It helps if you like the outdoors, but you can also do computer-assisted design (CAD) and hire out the grunt work if you don't.

All the best to you young 'uns.

I struggle with office politics as well. I was once told by my boss that while I am very skilled at my job, I am "unlikeable" and should focus more on my soft skills if I want to succeed. I sought professional help to develop "soft skills" and I am now achieving much more. I took the fake it till you make it approach and made a list of small talk items to practise. Things like, asking people what they are doing this weekend, or pointing to a picture on their desk and asking about their children. These are topics I find redundant and unnecessary but if they serve a practical purpose toward increasing my likeability or soft skills then I am willing to make an effort.

Hi all,

Yep, here's another one: African (from Namibia), female, Virgo, 41, never married, no kids....oh and recently confirmed that I'm also a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)....now that was the epiphany of all of my life-long struggles, doubts, confusion, questions....made complete sense and explained why many had said I'm weak, unwell, strange blah, blah...It's been a soul-defining journey through hell.

Still, we're here for a purpose and making up 2% of the world's INTJ population, feels pretty exclusive and cool to me.

I'm so used to being "...odd, different, not normal..." What I find is that it affords me much-needed breathing space and room to re-calibrate so that I can create whatever the hell I feel like!

Not bothered so much by what others think/say of me: those who know me, know me and those who hate me, won't believe the truth anyway, so why bother?

It's all within our power to make the most and best of who we are and can become.

Love,
B
