The INTJ at Work

At work, the INTJ excels at creating and implementing innovative solutions to analytical problems. They naturally see possibilities for improvement within complex systems and are organized and determined in implementing their ideas for change.

INTJs are comfortable with abstraction and theory but gain the most satisfaction from turning their ideas into reality. They often enjoy working independently or with a small team, taking measured, strategic steps to implement change.

INTJs enjoy working with logical systems that they can understand in depth. They enjoy the challenge of comprehending complex ideas, and want to understand how they can improve the way things work.

The ideal work environment for an INTJ is logical, efficient, structured, and analytical, with colleagues that are competent, intelligent, and productive. The ideal job for a Mastermind allows them to use their analytical skills to problem-solve in a challenging environment, and to take responsibility for implementing their ideas to create efficient, innovative systems.

Top Careers for the INTJ

INTJs are best suited to careers that allow them to use their logical, orderly reasoning to solve interesting problems. Although they are often drawn to STEM fields, INTJs can also be found in business or even the arts. The common theme for satisfied INTJs, however, is that they must be in a career that provides an intellectual challenge.

Top careers for the INTJ include:

INTJ Careers to Avoid

It is important to note that any personality type can be successful in any occupation. However, some occupations are well suited to the natural talents and preferred work style of the INTJ, while other occupations demand modes of thinking and behavior that do not come as naturally to this type. Occupations that require the Mastermind to operate outside their natural preferences may prove stressful or draining, and often sound unappealing to INTJs who are choosing a career.

The following occupations have been found to be unpopular among INTJs, based on data gathered from surveys of the general population.

  • Teacher's Aide
  • Preschool Teacher
  • Home Health Aide
  • Production Worker
  • Advertising Sales Agent

The INTJ on a Team

INTJs are analytical team members who focus on strategy. They are often perceptive about systems and how to improve them. They are thoughtful and clear in their analysis, and good at defining team goals. They are capable of synthesizing ideas of some complexity, and often see clearly to a unifying plan of action. INTJs take a characteristically critical approach, and analyze ideas and proposals with a detached, objective logic. They want to be free to make improvements to existing systems, and do best on a team where change is favored.

INTJs are open to ideas, and will consider the perspectives of the team members with an even-handed approach. However, they are firm and clear in their logical analysis, and have little patience for nonsense. They are unlikely to offer support or assurance to teammates who they don’t perceive as useful contributors. They are persuasive in their reasoning and often get teammates on board based on the clarity of their ideas. However, they may have friction with team members who have a focus on relationships; the Mastermind seeks a free exchange of ideas, not a personal connection.

The INTJ as a Leader

In leadership positions, INTJs are strategic, analytical planners and problem solvers. They are good at making tough decisions and sorting out complex issues. Masterminds excel at managing projects that implement a vision of improved efficiency or innovation, and although they usually prefer not to have to manage other people, they will take over if no other leader steps up. As leaders, they are democratic and hands-off: they generally prefer to share the overall goal and let their reports determine exactly how to complete their work.

INTJs value competence and decisiveness, and may sometimes neglect to listen to differing opinions once their mind is made up. While they focus on creating logical and innovative solutions, they may sometimes leave out the details of their plans, leaving their teams to wonder exactly how things will be accomplished.

a supposed intj (not verified) says...

this whole description assumes way to much in certain regards and blows these traits into extremes. I agree with so much, and I understand why it's phrased as it is, but I just think that it unifies our whole personality type by the most ideal INTJ and not by our basic traits. Maybe I'm just not INTJ enough, I don't know.

Simon Pugh (not verified) says...

INTJ  is not an acronym. It is an 'initialism'. Check the correct meaning of acronym. An acronym is a pronounceable word like radar, scuba and laser. IRA, IBM, IRS and INTJ are all initialisms.

JPS (not verified) says...

Ive taken this test several times over the last few years. The entire description pretty much sums my personality up very well. Im a perfectionist for sure always demanding more out of myself than whats reasonable and expecting others to work harder as well. My ex-wife would always say I drove her crazy with how I have to over analyze everything. I have an inner need to know more constanlty learning and trying to improve. It drives me insane sometimes to be honest. I have been tested and have a genius level IQ and feel sooo seperated from everyone else. I have a hard time finding people who really understand me. I dont understand emotions or relationships. Ive only had a couple of intimate relationships my whole life. Everyone tells me I should be more social and my general answer is, why? I like my alone time. I dont like having my phone blown up all the time with meaningless texts or phone calls just to tell me something you could tell me the next time I see you. Im an artist I paint and sketch and sculpt. I also love music I play guitar and sing. I write songs and poetry. Ive spent my whole life pretty much alone. Its only now that Im getting old that Im starting to feel a bit lonely and sometimes think about finding someone. Though I dont think I'm very good at relationships. I've been in 14 jobs in the last 10 years cause I get so bored with the meaningless futility of the jobs I work at. I crave something that challenges me. I recently decided to go back to school for CIC continued improvement coordinator. I really think that job would be perfect for me. Im actually a little relieved to have read this article. I feel like it helps me to see that I am who I am for a reason. Not that its all in my head.

To me it sounds like you have a well-functioning autism disorder. My stepdad is just like what you discribed. Have you been tested for that at any point in your life? If not, I wouldn't exclude the possibility completely.

FLM (not verified) says...

JPS me too. Nice to be reassured that my strengths are valuable and to be aware of situations requiring my weaknesses eg relationships at work. Not sure on the % of people that meet the INTJ criteria but I have not met that many in my working life, which has always made me feel odd, even though i am a valuable member of the team. 

NLJ (not verified) says...

I've taken this test like 4 times in the past ~10 years and they always add up to INTJ. I never took it seriously (I used to compare it to horoscopes), and I don't know how I even got to this site, but I honestly feel super relieved reading some of these descriptions/traits, because I've known how I naturally tend to act/react, and what exhausts me, but I feel alot better reading that I just may not be "built" for certain jobs or people (meaning that it's "confirmed" outside of my own opinion). I can say that about 95% of the descriptions line up.  After almost 30 years of not knowing what I "want to be when I grow up", the things that bring me joy (operational excellence/business analyst/project managing) kind of line up with a *typical* INTJ IMO. I'm actually really happy to have put 2 and 2 together, and I have a great roadmap of success, without forcing myself to act a certain way for a job I hate/am not a good fit for. Or I could've just lucked out or something.

Rayne Michael (not verified) says...

It's crazy reading these comments and being able to relate to ever single one of you for one  aspect or another. I'm a singer myself so I'm glad to see more musicians in the thread. I also work as a Night Manager at a hotel because I prefer being alone. Almost to a point where it effects my relationships. Going on 6 years single and discovering a lot about myself in that time I know I have to be able to bend a little and be more flexible to the needs of others if I ever want to be in a relationship again. I've always been blunt and direct and often times people don't know how to handle that. So I keep a small circle of friends who get me but don't overwhelm me with drama etc either. I dunno I think I come off self serving or selfish in alot of ways without even trying to. I just like my space I guess. Hope someone else can relate to me the way I related to many of you! Happy Holidays 2019!

Tony B for better lol (not verified) says...

I took an online profile test and the result came back as INTJ. After reading many interpretations of this type I can see some similarities. However, the entire background and feeling I get from this profile evaluation is much the same as when I read my horoscope. Sorry, I am not buying into this 100%.

Bruce Kendall (not verified) says...

Being this way is intensely frustrating. I solved how we, as a nation, are misled in the way standardized test results are presented to the public. And I know how to convert the results to the equivalent 0 to 100 classroom grade scale. The results are horrific. And while I know the assessments have flaws within their design, currently, they are the best snapshot we have of a student's ability to answer academic questions in an academic environment on the day assessed at this time. And I also know that a test grade does not mandate the rest of a person's life in the world outside of the classroom.

Jennifer Miller (not verified) says...

I am here studying character types for a project. I can't imagine where to go out for a night on the town, how, or the reason. If I didn't suck at relationships, why would I need to create characters (a.k.a., invisible friends)? My father said once, "intelligence borders on insanity." It seems less insane, to me, than investing time in cultivating the tree of fruitless love.

John Caviar says...

I'm an INTJ and just like an INTJ, I’ve analyzed both my results and other people who say their results didn’t add up.

1) most people to a high degree grow up trying to be someone else.
and most people spend a lot of their day lying to others so it's safe to say they're lying to themselves or how else would you fit into normal society today. 

This, in turn, makes people not look inward enough to know themselves well enough to take the test honestly, so taking this test is reliant on how honest you have been and will be conscious or subconsciously.

2) An INTJ and other I's spend their life looking inward so for this I find that so many INTJ's find this test to be past accurate cause they have gotten to know themselves.

This test for me has made me think I haven’t had an original thought or attuned towards life, ever smh but I love it still.

NoYourName (not verified) says...

Also INTJ, as tested, once. I feel this list does not very well describe me, in many ways; including comparisons with other posts. There should be more subsets of this personality type to further distinguish the intensity of the introspection and weather or not there is a DESIRE to relate, I am aware of subtypes -A (assertive) and -T (turbulent). That said, obviously, close enough to interest me, even convince me to post this; my third internet post in 15 years. Enjoy. I HATED music, from the time I  was three (recalled) or earlier, I did not see the point in art, I despised social events and concerts, still do, they completely drain my energy, distract from my projects, my life, and it is impossible to think there. I have always been extremely literal, thankfully less now than before. Today, after a great and conscious effort, I can tolerate music, I even have a few pieces I enjoy, but it is always forced, I have to CONVINCE myself to turn on the radio in my car. It will never happen if I don't make a point of it. Personal connections with other people have always been difficult. I want to be certain that nothing can go wrong before I make the irreversible step of considering someone a friend. After that contract is made I expect it not to be broken, usually a 5 to 10 year process. Today most of my discussions are with myself, pacing my livingroom at two in the morning inventing engines, refining legal systems, building city plans, running and rerunning entire books and movies and real situations in the past over and over again, changing them and recalculating and changing again. I find myself to be a fascinating conversation. Who needs holographs and augmented reality? I can project my thoughts on the real world and integrate them, no problem. When I was four years old I would grab a blanket, hide behind a chair or couch, close my eyes, and simply enjoy playing in whatever world I fancied to create that day, for two or three hours at a time. Avid reader, up to 10 hours per day. By age 9 finished Tolkien's LOTR. I can't read a book straight through, I interrupt myself too often reinventing the circumstances and characters and solving whatever "problems" I believe I come across. Sometimes I find it necessary to reinvent my own meanings for words. I consider myself to be reasonable, not logical. "Logic" implies process whereas "reason" implies purpose. One is a means, another an end. Is it logical to be logical? An unbounded process is actually dangerous, often antithetical to success. Is it reasonable to be reasonable? Purpose demands effective process. Therefore self-supporting. I have actually been "accused" of being logical, I conceived this argument to reinforce that analyzing the situation is done with careful consideration of the outcome and not by some useless knee-jerk reaction to information. Lastly, on personalities. I had terrible trouble early in life "fitting in" in any social setting, even my own family. Then I thought, if I can disassemble and reassemble and design systems and philosophies, why not design personalities? Since then I have had great success contriving personalities to fill specific needs in my day to day life, giving each so much time and resources as would be necessary to complete its task. Because of this, people who have known me for six months to a year are often "surprised" to all of the sudden figure out who I am. I am not even sure INTJ classifies as my original personality. I feel like there is an older, gentler, and more delicate personality, that is only allowed to come out and play when all the problems have been solved, all the tasks completed, and the safety nets erected. Devout christian, engineer, male, if someone is keeping tally. Apologies for emphasis, added to deepen understanding. Why did I write this? If someone like me is reading this, it will be worth it to them.

KM (not verified) says...

I'm INTJ, Female, and also persue a wide range of interests - especially now that I'm retired.  I am confused by the number of people advising others to persue their dreams, vs calculating the cost/benefit of any major life decision. 

In all situations, I think through the logical sequence of events, likely to occur based on any decision I make, then assess the pros and cons of each, to arrive at the best likely outcome for me. 

I also loved music & art (who doesn't), but I never considered either as a plausible endeavor, because the sheer volume of others who also love music & art. That coupled with the miniscule number of people who make a living in music & art, suggested it was not a good bet I'd be successful. (I'm good, but not great.)

Additionally, I considered the actual lifestyle of people earning a living in music, and decided that was not a lifestyle I aspired to. Nor do I believe most INTJs would like it, in the long run. Aside from being introverted (the first letter in INTJ), uncomfortable on stage (or even in front of a few close friends), I can't imagine what would be the allure of such a life.

Especially long term.  Do you want a family? Will you abandon them to go on tour, or even to do local gigs - all of which would be in the evenings, or on weekends? How would that work with spouses and children who live in the regular world, where nights and weekends are family time?  

Have you checked out how much money a musician in the local house band makes? Can you afford a quality of life for yourself and your family on that kind of money? I doubt it. If you think you are Beyonce, or Bruce Springstein, and you would love that level of scrutiny and lack of privacy, then go for it.  But if you self assess, and deem you are not really at that level, then you need to consider what the local band at the hotel down the street earns, and what their lives are like, before making that decision. 

It's very easy for others to cavalierly say "Go for it", or "Follow your dreams", but they have little to lose, as they sit back and watch you live out your life, alone, in one hotel room after another, & never having enough money to afford the family you could have had, if you'd factored in the likely money and success you'd have more likely gained with a different decision.

Frankly, I question if any of these people even are INTJ, given the cavalier attitudes expressed in their decision making process.

Art is a much more solitary persuit, so I could see the fit better for an INTJ, but unless you are a Davinci level artist, your odds of making a living in art are nonexistant. Even Davinci would have trouble making a living in art nowadays, because art has become so bastardized, that museums show an orange canvas, with a black dot, and call it art.  Seriously, How much talent did that take? It's not art, & I have no idea how one would arrange to pass off such idiocy as talent, and make a living at it.   Do you?

Be realistic. Think it through. Consider the lifestyle of the practicioners of any carreer path that interests you, and then decide.  I seriously considered being a Doctor, and was accepted into an Ivy Legue medical school, but walked away. I considered that a Doctor has to actually see, and touch patients. Every day. Sick people, too, and I knew I could never do that in real life. Prior to acceptance, I'd only considered if I could do the work to become a doctor, and I knew I could.  I had calculated the cost of the education vs the earnings of Doctor, in deciding my path, but I'd forgotten the actual day to day life of a Doctor, until I was injured, and had to go to the hospital on multiple occasions for treatments.

Fortunately, that woke me to the reality of what a Doctor does, before I spent years and considerable money, just to get that degree. (And yes, I did consider becoming a Doctor that doesn't see patients, but there's no Doctor that has zero contact with patients, and I knew that was not my calling.)

Just be aware, and decide based on Likely outcomes - not fantasies. You probably are not Beyonce or Bruce, but if you really do aspire to be the local house band at the hotel down the street, then make your plans accordingly, & be the best house band that hotel ever saw.  : )

INTJ, Chemist... I'm always dealing with an overwhelming sensation of unfulfillment.  The mastermind/systems designer role suits me well, but I'm looking for ways to allow my personality to articulate with other compatible personality types. My cognitive preference Te > Ni > Si > Fe> Ne >Ti = Fi =Se and my temperic blend is choleric sanguine. 

These tests are a good assessment of my character, but at the same time I feel a little bummed that the results condemn me to the fate isolation.  I'd like to become better at building teams, or at least work with someone that can help me build a team!

I’m a female INTJ. I thought I would never meet other INTJs since we make up only 2% of the general population (3% of men, and 1% of woman), according to the report.

Now, I’m meeting other INTJs like me. I’m elated. Why don’t we form an online social platform group for INTJs to support one another?

Jrdillon (not verified) says...

INTJ females,  just curious if you have always felt different and/or found it difficult to establish meaningful relationships with other women?  This has a been a problem for me my entire life.  Mainly in the workplace as an adult - on my own time I am not obligated to attempt to socialize with them.  Don't get me wrong, I don't mean all women but pretty much the majority.  I have a few close female friends but it took me a long time to find them (and them me, much to our mutual relief) and the rest of my close friends are men.  As a young adult and into my twenties (just turned 49 last week) I stopped even attempting to fit in because at the end of the day I really didn't want any part of it anyway - I simply could not relate to them, didn't think like them, and wasn't a 'follower' in any way shape or form (quite the opposite, not intentionally but just how I am).  Soooo, to try make a long story short.. they almost NEVER like me (again, quite the opposite, haha).  Honestly this doesn't bother me as I accepted that I am simply different a long time ago but as a Nurse (as listed in the occupations to avoid, figures) it can become a problem really quick when I am surrounded by them at work.  I have tried everything but find it excruciating to try to fake it and they still seem to sense I am different anyway so I am at my wits end.  I am starting a new job next week and my mother actually said to me 'you need to figure out what it is you are doing that makes them dislike you and change it before you start' .. if only it was that easy, I was pretty much speechless :/

I guess I am hoping someone can relate and it isn't just me.  Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.

Side note - I am also a music fanatic but just listening not actually playing.  I was surprised to see how many here love it as much as I do - I couldn't live without it.

EM4 (not verified) says...

I think that many people here are not INTJ because many of them tell their life, a behavior which is very uncommon with INTJ (it is one of the most introvert type). It is very hard to find his real type because we have naturallly a lot of cognitive bias: for exemple, we can answer to the text as we would like to be and not like we really are. Also, it is important to not forget that there are no superior type, an INTJ is not necessarly more clever than an ESFJ.

A person who mistype INTJ for a long time.

Shreekunj (not verified) says...

Um..Hi ladies here. 

I am also a INTJ female. But fact is I am a lot younger than you guys like I am 16. So, few days ago I was watching youtube and saw few words about personality types. I, most likely all INTJs, searched about it and I finally understand that I am neither sociopath or psycopath. I am INTJ female. Kind of rare to find people I can totally interact with so I would really love to share my thoughts with my fellow INTJs.

I am currently confused about a certain things. Firstly, I personally feel repelled while socializing but I still try to be open. I really love taking with people but the way I explain situations and interact seems like pathetic to others I guess. I try to be open minded but the people just don't have time to listen what I am saying or to consider me. I tried to open up and gave a green signal if anybody wants help. Like selflessly. But now I am being used for their growth. It is hurting now.

So I am thinking to become a little bit my real cold self, who would not be regarded as granted all the time, but still approchable in real need. I am also trying to learn how to say no. 

Is that a good solution or should I try something else? Please help me.

RAR (not verified) says...

Ahhh, the last part you wrote about.. 

I am also struggling with that. 😶 

It seems my being always kind and available to others has made me come across as a fool(?) or a naive airhead?

So I have been considering going back to more of my cold nature.. 




But I don't want to hurt peoples' feelings, which is why I changed to be more lackadaisical in the first place. 🥴


Anyway, I will try my more serious demeanor and see if things improve. 

I have become so drained by people, so I hope this works.

As an INTJ who is struggling with her work environment (busy, high energy, loud, lots of leaders), I truly appreciate finding this information.  Luckily, I am able to work 2 days a week at home with my dogs and, in my spare time, to do research to support community organizing (that's where the "mastermind" comes out).

For those INTJ's wishing to work in the Corporate World, these are some jobs worth considering:

  • Business Analyst
  • HR Business Partner
  • Project Manager
  • GM/EGM in an area focusing on improvement and/Or change
  • Accountant
  • Workforce Manager (forecasting)
  • Union Field Organiser
  • Policy Manager

As mentioned previously, INTJ's should steer clear of roles in Marketing, PR or in leadership roles that require constant contact with reports (typically in lower management).

Best wishes for the future.

I cried when I read this. 

Nothing in my life has ever explained me in such detail.  I've lived 34 years thinking something was wrong with me. I couldn't understand why people didn't think like me. I tend to understand and learn much faster and can't shut off my analytical brain. I come to conclusions that no one around me does and it has led to an exhausting life, having to explain everything to people over and over again...thinking they were ignorant while they thought I was crazy. I'm not self taught in 5 instruments, sing and write my own music, I have 7 skilled trades and 6 certifications and almost 2 college degrees. Student at life. I can't quit engaging in articles that stimulate me. I have to remain constantly stimulated or I feel dead. It makes building relationships with others very difficult.

HL (not verified) says...

Hi there, I very recently took the test and discovered I am an INTJ-type and what a revelation it was for me. I've always thought there is something wrong and weird with myself in a lot of ways and it was just comforting to know that I belong to a rare and unique type of personality and that there are other people that can understand. Everything about here rang so many bells to me but this particular description really hit me hard, "INTJs can be almost scientific in choosing a mate and make devoted partners once they have found a match that fits their rigorous list of requirements." I am 23 and still haven't experienced being in love. I've been attracted to a lot of other people but the feelings weren't all, sadly, mutual. It's just that I tend to have this very structured and concrete idea of love that when I find it, it has to be something I was mostly prepared and definitely knew how to handle. It doesn't help that I am an antisocial, easily overwhelmed by crowds, and talking to people I don't know that I rarely go out and meet new people. These could be the reasons why. Has it always been this way for other people of my personality types? If so, any advise you can give for an INTJ-type seeking for love? Thanks. 

Cipheos (not verified) says...

It's always funny how accurate MBTI seems until you read a few other profiles and realize about a third of all types would suit you fairly well.

I sincerely envy any creative INTJs here. I doubt it comes natural to an INTJ to stick with a creative hobby. God knows how often I've tried art and music.

For some reason I stuck with software development from a young age. I'd like to punch that brat in the face right about now. I wouldn't recommend it at all, most work environments seem to suck.

I just wish I could play the violin 😢

I'm a musician and do various computer/tech related things (graphics, video editing etc) and have a seriously difficult time finding and holding onto meaningful realtionships with people. No one really seems to understand me at all. I feel like a damn square peg in a world full of round holes. I just can't relate to 99% of humanity it feels like. I won't lie. It's been quite miserable much of the time. I thought I must be some strange, broken weirdo. And then randomly I take some test and stumble across this. Who is this person that wrote this and how did they get into my brain? I guess it all makes sense now. The problem is apparently that I keep seeking out people that clash with my needing of space and not being good with outward emotion. Apparently there actually are a couple of types that work with us INTJ oddballs. Where are these extroverts that actually work with us? I've never met a damn one.

Grey Fox says...

And I have a neurological condition effecting my head and neck causing spasms, tremors and these sort “ neurological “jolts from my neck to my head. These symptoms no doubt effect my functional stack, especially Ni, which requires you to be in a placid state of what I would call “ mindful mindlessness” or what online sources call “ flow state”. To me Te alone is a hollowed out function without access to Ni.

Grey Fox says...

I’ve got the MBTI result of INTJ on this site and on many other sites. But from all that I’ve read about this Type, I think to myself: these are really big shoes to fill, I’ve never came up with it any groundbreaking systems or idea that are applicable in the real world. I mean was able to explain what “matter” was before having ever read about it, same goes for time being relative and the principal of action-reaction. But these theories/concepts have been discovered and well established, despite that I came to these conclusions through my own thoughts and observations. There are other examples, like one day I was able to tell my father that he would get into an accident and he did. Anyway I feel like I don’t have the merit to deserve such an acronym in reality. Though it’s hard to assess because I had a rough childhood and poor education, so there is the factor of nature and nurture.

My results came up INTJ on this test and on a subsequent test performed by a different company. After reading the posts presented here and information on our type, I would say that any one of us can accomplish great things in any field as long as we maintain our focus.

Pretty cool to be one of 2% of the general population!  With this many of us.  We can possibily solve many problems that our society is dealing with.

A test does not make an INTJ nor any other type - it's the descriptors, traits and functions that tell the tale, and how you interact with your environment and people.  You don't just take a test and become this style or that style. It's the lifestyle that you lead that reflects more about who you are. Get over yourselves.

In addition the MBTI typing only really works when peoples preferences are sufficiently polarised - a person scoring 52% INTUITIVE will behave differently than someone scoring 92% INTUITIVE - yet neither person scores as SENSING, and therefore both have teh MBTI type "xNxx".

I hvae a degree in Nursing and a Masters in Theology and in Public Health, currently pursuing advance degree to become NP.

I have this desire to dismantle the current higher education system and rebuilt from the scratch since the day I started senior high school. I kept dreaming about it, I have plans on how to do it and until now, the desire is still here.

Let me rant in here, I know you will all understand. We were all under the same inefficient, inadequate, soul crushing, numbing education system. What's the point of learning some filler subjects that are not relevant to the degree that you are pursuing? For any bachelors degree, 2 years theory and 2 years practicum/clinicals.
