INTJs and Other Personality Types

Kindred Spirits

People of the following types are more likely than most to share the INTJ's values, interests, and general approach to life. They won't necessarily agree on everything, and there's no guarantee they'll always get along, but they're more likely to feel an easy rapport and have plenty of things in common.

Intriguing Differences

People of the following types are likely to strike the INTJ as similar in character, but with some key differences which may make them seem especially intriguing. The INTJ may find people of these types particularly interesting and attractive to get to know. Relationships between INTJs and these types should have a good balance of commonalities and opportunities to challenge one another.

Potential Complements

INTJs may not feel an immediate connection with people of the following types, but on getting to know each other, they'll likely find they have some important things in common, as well as some things to teach one other. Although people of these types may not attract the INTJ initially, their relationships present a lot of potential to complement and learn from one other.

Challenging Opposites

People of the following types present the most potential for personality clash and conflict with the INTJ, but also the best opportunities for growth. Because people of these types have fundamentally different values and motivations from the INTJ's, initially, it may seem impossible to relate. But because they are so different, their strengths are the INTJ's weaknesses, and if they are able to develop a relationship, they can learn a tremendous amount from each other.

INTJs in Love

In relationships, the INTJ is loyal but independent. 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. They often have clear ideas about what makes for a solid relationship and are unwavering in their pursuit of this ideal.

INTJs often have a passion for self-improvement and are encouraging of their partners' goals and intellectual pursuits. However, they do not usually see the need for frivolous affection or romance, feeling that their devotion should be evident. They are more focused on serving their partners with hard work and resourceful problem-solving than they are on showering them with attention.

INTJs' partners often find them difficult to read, and indeed they do not show emotion easily; they find the process of discussing emotions much too messy and disorganized. They enjoy solving difficult problems, but are often out of their depth when it comes to illogical, unpredictable personal issues.

INTJs value a partner that allows them the independence to achieve their goals, and one who appreciates their efficacy, insight, and ability to offer creative solutions to problems.

INTJs as Parents

As parents, INTJs are devoted and supportive. They set firm limits and provide consistent reinforcement, but within that structure allow a lot of latitude for their children to explore their own interests and potential. They are encouraging of their childrens' intellectual pursuits and enthusiastic about sharing knowledge.

INTJs enjoy the process of developing a young mind, and get a lot of satisfaction from parenting. They want to develop productive, competent, and self-sufficient children who think for themselves.

INTJ Communication Style

INTJs are direct and detached in their communication. They often naturally see how something could be done better and usually communicate their criticism in a straightforward, logical manner. They are typically independent and calm; they are not so much concerned about being liked or appreciated as they are with being competent and thoughtful. Their communications are typically well thought-out, insightful, and strategic. They often plan well into the future and offer big-picture analysis for improving systems.

I alternate between INTJ and ENTP, so I've basically got it all figured out.

Someguy (not verified) says...

I hate being an INTJ. It feels like I'm in a constant battle to break free from myself and my mind. Just wish I could get out there and live life without needing to analyse, you know maybe give someone a smile every once in a while and let them know I am actually a friendly person and not a threat lol.

I can totally relate!! I love salsa dancing because it's a high energy "game" that requires constant focus outside of my mind.  Dance is one of the few things that does that for me.

Same here. Hard to date. Especially being new to the country where I live now, people don't approach that easily. 

I'm like, I'm really funny on the inside...

Hanee (not verified) says...

You can somehow twerk the things you wanna do. Though INTJs are serious, you cant blame this personality if you are not smiling most of the time. Teach yourself to smile once in a while.

DogwoodTree (not verified) says...

I totally hear that. We are, it seems, the most misunderstood personality type--to the point I don't even tell some people my profile when they ask because I know they'll think what they always think --- "I have no idea what this person is talking about." For real. It sorta sucks.

oh, i start feeling normal now. 

Ramaswamy Adisesh (not verified) says...

Yes, you are right... INTJs are the most misunderstood.  Mau be because, they come to conclusions after analysis and stick to it?  Also,  they do not worry about what others think (about them)... So they don't waste time trying to explain themselves.  Sometimes they are left with "Why don't people understand this? type of feeling.  Because some it comes to them very easily and others stuggle with it.

so what's stopping you - SMILE - especially right now - SMILES are infectious in a good way - if you're thinking this way - you *are already* a friendly person, person with a good heart and good intentions - don't be lablled by this - choose how you want to live YOUR LIFE -
I do understand about the battle to break free of myself and mind - OMG my head hurts at the moment - all my plans for the weekend, next 2 weekend changed on Friday morning (I'm in New Zealand - last count, only 28 - all infected come in from overseas - not spreading in community yet - everything closing down to prevent this from happening - you can find balance - live your life - I find helping others helps me - too busy focused on them - espeically LISTENING to them (really listening - not just waiting for a pause to say what you want to say - listening to them) helps me.  been listening to a lot of elderly recently - oh they have been through worse - great depression - war - really highly infectious epidemics like polio - (this - this one is "weak" *experts* say - simple soap and water kills it - simple precautions).  common sense and we can end this.  stay safe.  take care. have hope.  Julia

I believe that intj personalities were described as the least likely to believe in God, not unable. Deep rational arguments for the existence of a greater power or intelligence (God) have been put forth quite well. Each individual has the choice and should be allowed the choice regardless of personality type, or anything else.

Will nunya (not verified) says...

Listen, there is no logical argument for an omnipotent and all knowing God that is also described as loving or caring.

If it's all part of the plan than the plan is evil and so is God.

By that logic everything unfortunate happenstance and human action or inaction, not any higher being.

This is why INTJ's will not subscribe to most Faiths, faith requres beleiving without proof and most INTJs, are not idiots.

The_Grey_Wizard (not verified) says...

I thought a Mastermind analyzed all the data before formulating concrete universal laws? Don't you know that the universe by mass is 95% composed of unobservable matter and energy? If we can conclude that everything anyone can possibly know is only 5% of everything there is, then we can conclude that we are unable to conclude anything! Least of all the existence of an onmipotent God that is good.

 

P.s. I'm greatly looking forward to a lasting debate.

Unicorn woman INTJ (not verified) says...

INTJ is approaching the God thing all wrong, by their own contemplative nature, which is why so few believe. God is a spiritual entity and should be discovered in that manner, not through the mind. "You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13.  ALL of your heart. Not part of it, 100% of your HEART.  Not seeking with your mind. This one is between you and God.

Unicorn Believer (not verified) says...

I'm an INTJ, female.

I just think it's unfortunate that most of these sites just state that we're unlikely to be religious because it's "irrational." Sometimes it's a matter of survival to do so, sometimes very beneficial. I lived most of my life in Baltimore City, a warzone by most metrics. People who are connected to a faith group (like mine, Evangelical Christianity) are less likely to die, more likely to reproduce, more likely to have stable lives and sizeable bank accounts. 

From my perspective, in my location, a lack of belief in God does not denote intelligence because those of my neighbors who don't practice often wind up on the wrong side of the law, or the wrong side of the ground. Faith has a utilitarian factor, and though I truly believe in the redemption story of Christ, I can say my faith is about relationships, and not just about blind belief. When you're part of a church that actually practices what is preached from the pulpit, faith makes more sense.

Also, our definition of faith is different from the secular one. Non-believers see faith as blind belief in something for the sake of believing it (any random "higher power"). Christians see faith as evidence for what is unseen (lives turned around, relationships fixed, goals in life reached). 

I think it's more accurate to say that INTJ's ascribe to belief in a higher power where it is more logical to do so.

JasonK (not verified) says...

Label INTJ "The Mastermind", and all of the sudden everyone sees themselves as an INTJ.

 

Here is a protip: If you are here saying you are an INTJ, and then try to describe how you are an Extroverted INTJ, an INTJ that appeals to authority (Sensor) instead of iNtuition, try to describe how your "know" anything because of your Feeliings instead of Thinking; then you are not an INTJ.

This forum is full of wannabe INTJs. 

General and Special Revelation (not verified) says...

I think our use of faith is the water for God’s crop of life (i.e. glorification), but God’s crop of life gives us the hope to amass our faith (John 12:24; Galatians 6:8). Here's how I metaphor my revelation from when I was a physics major with my salvation (Like Paul made Armor metaphor with God’s Power; Ephesians 6:10-20).

⚛️Physics (General Revelation) ≈ ✝️Salvation (Special Revelation)

Example (Romans 1:20 ≈ 2 Tim. 3:14 - 17):

🌾E = m × c^2

🌾Love = (Spiritual Growth) × (Faith) × (Jesus Blood)

 

Our providence for love in God shines until we have lost our faith in Him watering His love, but we persevere to love Him by His grace to continually give us faith. Pray for grace (Luke 17:5). 🙏

 

This is not gnosticism, pantheism, or sabellianism. I’m sure this could be flawed; but here.

 

Writing these equations has helped me write papers in my classes that make sense.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

We need God's grace to get Faith in Jesus for Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8 - 10; Heb. 12:2)

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = - - - >

💧Mass = m ≈ Faith/Salvation (The gift from God who chose you to perform these salvation equations.)

🍇Mass = m^2 ≈ Fruit of Spirit (Ezekiel 47:12)

⛪Mass = m^3 ≈ Flesh/Body of Christ (1 Peter 5:2-3)

🙏Gravity Constant = G ≈ Passion (Job 27:10; Colossians 1:9-14)

[The probable need to pray by humility (Matthew 17:17; Mark 9:29b).]

🙏Gravity Constant = G = F ÷ ((m ÷ d) × (m ÷ d))

🙏Gravity Constant = G ≈ Sanctification ÷ (Sufferer's Mercy × Follower's Faith)

🏞️Mass Flow Rate = Δm ÷ Δt ≈ Perseverance Grace [Romans 15:4; Ephesians 4:7; John 4:10, 15:1-17]

🏞️Mass Flow Rate = Δm ÷ Δt ≈ Hope × Illumination × Spirit (The rate we get our faith from Jesus, the source of the living water (John 7:37-39; Revelations 22:16-21).)

[Example: Hope by Message from Divine Inspiration by Holy Spirit; Romans 10:17]

Wisdom of Gospel needs lead of Spirit (Isaiah 11:2 - 3; 1 Cor. 2:13 - 16).

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = - - - >

💉Distance = d ≈ Jesus Blood (Luke 5:31)

[i.e. Gospel Sufficiency or The Word's Scripture; Truth]

(I think of moving through the Word for Special Revelation. I think the Gospel Seed is planted in our hearts (i.e. Spiritual Ground) by Jesus shedding His blood (Luke 8:4-15; Acts 20:28).)

💉Distance = d = v × t [We want Jesus Blood in our hearts; Ephesians 3:17 - 19; John 6:53]

💉Distance = d ≈ (Holy Spirit) × (Thirst)

💖Area = d^2 = A ≈ Illumination [i.e. Gospel Clarity; Righteous Demands; Planting Gospel] (Isaiah 1:17 - 19)

💗Volume = d^3 = V ≈ Holiness [i.e. Gospel Authority; Provides Good; Giving Faith through Hope]

💗Volume = m ÷ ρ ≈ Faith ÷ Hope

(Interesting to know God has a size with our hearts; Ephesians 3:17 - 19)

🌱Linear Density = m ÷ d ≈ Providence (Watering the Word's Gospel Seed in a heart with our faith.)

[Faith for Jesus Blood or "Gospel" (John 15:4-5; John 3:16; Romans 8:28)]

🍃Area Density = m ÷ A ≈ Mercy

🍃Area Density = m ÷ A ≈ Faith ÷ Illumination

🌿Density = m ÷ V = ρ ≈ Hope (Revelation 22:2)

🌿Density = m ÷ V = ρ ≈ Faith ÷ Holiness

🥛Time = t ≈ Spiritual Thirst [i.e. Gospel Necessity; Heb. 5:11 - 13; 1 Peter 2:2 – 3; 1 Cor. 3:1-3]

🥛Time = d ÷ v ≈ (Jesus Blood) ÷ (Holy Spirit)

[Every drop of Jesus blood to drink distributed by the Holy Spirit is a moment from God's eternal revelation; John 6:27 - 35]

(Person with less Spirit is thirstier than a person with more Spirit. In other words, you drink less when you have more Spirit.)

🏆Time Dilation ≈ Spiritual Thirst Quench = t_(Less Spiritual) = t_(More Spiritual) ÷ (1 − v^2 ÷ c^2)^(1/2) (John 4:14)

When a person gets more Holy Spirit, that person relieves their spiritual thirst less frequently.

🍽️Time = t^2 ≈ Spiritual Hunger [Fruit of Spirit; Gal. 5:22 - 23]

🐑Time = t^3 ≈ Spiritual Nourishment [John 6:53 - 57]

☁️Velocity = v ≈ Holy Spirit (Giving wisdom and commitment after receiving faith.)

[Can't have Spirit unless you have faith, which is your "mass", (John 14:26; 2 Cor. 1:22; Eph 1:13)]

☁️Velocity = v = d ÷ t

☁️Velocity = v ≈ (Jesus Blood) ÷ (Spiritual Thirst) [1 John 4:1 - 6]

🌪Acceleration = a ≈ Spiritual Growth

🌪Acceleration = a = d ÷ t^2

💞Acceleration by Distance = v^2 = c^2 ≈ (Spiritual Growth) × (Jesus Blood)

[Ephesians 4:11 - 16]

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Obedience needs the faith in Jesus for Spirit in Heart (John 14:15 - 30; Galatians 5:13 - 26)

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = - - - >

🌬Momentum = p ≈ Justification [Romans 5:1 – 5; John 3:5]

🌬Momentum = p = γ × m × v

🌬Momentum = p ≈ Faith × (Holy Spirit)

🌬Momentum = p ≈ Faith × (Jesus Blood) ÷ (Spiritual Thirst) [Romans 5:9]

🌬Momentum = p = E ÷ c ≈ Love ÷ (Holy Spirit)

💨Relativistic = γ ≈ Cannot have more Holy Spirit than God. (John 15:20; Col. 3:23-24; Job 33:11-13; Isaiah 40:31)

💨Relativistic = γ = 1 ÷ (1 − v^2 ÷ c^2)^(1/2)

💨Relativistic = γ ≈ Spirit can have a size (2 Kings 2:9). Maybe it is fatuous to guess that the more Holy Spirit we have in us in relation to someone with less Holy Spirit; our faith seems greater to the person with less Holy Spirit than to ourselves. Does it take more love to Spiritually Grow as we get more Holy Spirit in us?

💨Relativistic = γ ≈ We have more Love as we have more Faith.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Sanctification is increasing their Spiritual Growth by giving a Disciple Faith and through sharing the truth of the Gospel (John 12:24; 2 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 2:21).

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = - - - >

🌧️Force = F ≈ Sanctification [i.e. Commission Matt. 28:16 - 20; Ezekiel 33:1-11; John 17:17]

🌧️Force = F = m × a

🌧️Force = F ≈ Faith × (Spiritual Growth)

✨Force Constant ≈ Sanctification Cleansing

✨Force Constant = (F × (d ÷ m)^2 ≈ Sanctification × ((Jesus Blood) ÷ Faith)^2

👪Strong Nuclear Force “Constant” Function = S_(d) ≈ -|(sin(1 ÷ d))^3| ≈ Fellowship Sanctification

[Acts 2 - 4]

👪Strong Nuclear Force = F_S ≈ S_(d) × (m_1 × m_2) ÷ (|d_1 - d_2|)^2

👪Strong Nuclear Force ≈ Fellowship × (Providence_1 × Providence_2)

🎣Electromagnetic Force “Constant” Function = k(d) ≈ |(1 ÷ d)^3| ÷ 137 ≈ Poor In Spirit Sanctification

[Faith is the wealth of the Spirit; Matt. 5:3; Luke 19:1 - 10]

🎣Electromagnetic Force = F_k ≈ k_(d) × ((Q_1 × Q_2) ÷ (|d_1 - d_2|)^2)

💦Electromagnetic Charge = Q ≈ Faith Wealth

💦Electromagnetic Charge = Q_1 ≈ The need to bless?

💦Electromagnetic Charge = Q_1 ≈ |m_2 – m_1| × (|(m_2 – m_1|) ÷ (m_1 – m_2))

|(Anointed Faith) − (Personal Faith)| × |((Anointed Faith) − (Personal Faith))| ÷ ((Personal Faith) − (Anointed Faith))

💦 Electromagnetic Charge = Q_2 ≈ The anointed? A minister or church?

💦 Electromagnetic Charge = Q_2 ≈ ((Anointed Justification) ÷ (Holy Spirit)) ÷ (# of hearts in Anointed)

🐟 - Personal Faith Poor in Spirit

🌦️ ≤ Church Justification allocated by Holy Spirit <

[Note: If Q_1 is positive, Q_1 should be Q_2, and Q_2 should be Q_1.]

💫Weak Force Probability Function = w_(d) ≈ 100 × (d^2 + 1)^550 = % Probability to Humility (Negate Calculation of Poor In Spirit Sanctification)

[Matt. 28:16 – 20; 2 Chronicles 7:14]

🙏Gravity Force “Constant” Function = G_(d) ≈ -6.67430 × (|cos(1 ÷ d)^3|) ÷ 10^39 = Passion Sanctification

🙏Gravity Force = F_G ≈ G_(d) × (m_1 × m_2) ÷ (|d_1 - d_2|)^2

Use your gifts given to you by God's grace to share Jesus's Blood so a disciple can have faith to be sanctified by Spiritual Growth (1 Cor. 10:31; 2 Cor. 3:18).

👑Work = W ≈ Glorification [i.e. Love with God] (John 6:53 – 54; Philippians 2:12-13)

👑Work = W = F × d

👑Work = W = m × v^2 ≈ (Spiritual Growth) × Faith × (Jesus Blood) [2 Timothy 2:15]

👑Work = W = m × v^2 ≈ Faith × (Illumination ÷ Spiritual Hunger)

👑Work = W = P × t ≈ (Bread of Life) × (Spiritual Thirst)

[i.e. Communion]

👑Work = W ≈ Justification × (Holy Spirit)

👑Work = W ≈ Sanctification × (Jesus Blood)

🍞Power = P ≈ Bread of Life (John 6:35; Colossians 1:29)

🍞Power = P = W ÷ t

🍞Power = P ≈ Glorification ÷ (Spiritual Thirst)

🌾Energy = E ≈ Love ≈ The Crop of Life (John 12:24)

🌾Energy = E ≈ Love ≈ a × m × d ≈ (Spiritual Growth) × (Faith) × (Jesus Blood) [Note: Glorification and Love had the same equation of units (F × d).]

😋Intensity = I ≈ Taste of Salt (Matt. 5:13 - 16; Mark 9:50)

😋Intensity = I = P ÷ A ≈ Bread ÷ Illumination [Col. 4:6]

🕯️Intensity = I ≈ Light of the World; Humility (Mark 10:45; 2 Cor. 8:9)

🕯️Intensity = I = E ÷ (A × t) ≈ Love ÷ (Illumination × Thirst)

💥Intensity = I = (E × v) ÷ V ≈ (Love × Spirit) ÷ Holiness

👋Wave Function = Ψ ≈ Preaching the Word (Colossians 1:28)

🌊Amplitude = E ≈ Love from Word (Isaiah 58:1)

🌊Amplitude = E = h × c ÷ λ

🕊️Planck's Constant = h ≈ Predicate of the Word (John 14:6; Psalm 119:105)

🕊️Planck's Constant = h ≈ Love × Thirst

🕊️Planck's Constant = h ≈ Spirt × Faith × Blood

🕊️Modified Planck's Constant = ħ = h ÷ 2π

🗣️Frequency = ƒ = E ÷ h ≈ Word per Thirst

🗣️Frequency = ƒ = E ÷ h = 1 ÷ t

🗣️Frequency = ƒ = E ÷ h ≈ Love ÷ (Spirt × Faith × Blood)

🗣️Frequency = ƒ = v ÷ λ ≈ Spirit distributed by Blood

💓Wavelength = λ = h ÷ p ≈ Blood for Word

✒️Uncertainty Principle = ħ ÷ 2 ≈ Father’s Title (Acts 1:7; Deut. 29:29; Job 24:1)

✒️Uncertainty Principle = ħ ÷ 2 ≤ (Δd) × (Δp)

📜Uncertainty Proportion ≈ God’s Will = (m_2)d_1 × (m_1 × d_2 ÷ (m_2)t)

[Genesis 1:2; 1 Thess. 5:5; Ephesians 5:8]

📜Uncertainty Proportion ≈ God’s Will → d_1 ≈ Subject’s Difference of Blood from God

📜Uncertainty Proportion ≈ God’s Will → d_2 ≈ Amount of Blood per Thirst for Subject

📜Uncertainty Proportion ≈ God’s Will → m_1 ≈ Faith in Subject

📜Uncertainty Proportion ≈ God’s Will → lim┬(+∞→+0)〖(m_2 )〗≈ Certainty/Faith of Instrument of God for Subject

💧Faith ≈ (Love) ÷ (Holy Spirit)^2

🙇Faith seems to be used by the Holy Spirit to water our brothers' and sisters' glory allocated after the Spiritual Growth by Jesus Blood.

🎓I still have a lot to learn even though I’m a senior.

Ayachan (not verified) says...

I think it's really illogical for all of us to assume the traits of one type just because some scientists attempted to arrange them under a certain category . Humanities are never that empirical to start with. I think the aim of this test is to explain certain aspects about our personality and how we differ from other people, keeping in mind that it is just a theroy. Personally, I prefer to read about different theories and combine them. And I found all of them beneficial as they complement eachother. As for the matter of believing, who has the right to tell a type that you should not do it just because of your prescribed type. It is extremly childish and absurd. I am a female Intj and I believe in both but in my own way. I believe there should be an order to dictate what is wrong and what is right and from a higher power since we are limited as beings and our perceptions are subjectibe. Through my own experience I faced an immense amount of doubt before and it still happens time to time if not everyday. I warmly welcome this as an intencive that pushes me to know, to read and to analyse more. I am against the idea of explaining to people about God or religion because it is a personal quest and it is only comvincing when one goes through it. For love, I made alot of mistakes in my choice of partners before, but studying psychology and reading more about my religion helped me to  change and to find the loveliest human being I have ever thought of meeting. The irony is that he is a feeler. I believe that this what makes us a good couple. I had to change a little bit and to take into consideration his sensitivity, and on the counterpart he learnt to give me my own space and understand that I am not harsh on him. I am simply more rational. I tend to seperate feelings from problem solving, No matter how hurt I am or he is I will only think about the solution. We also made a promise that if anyone of us stops being who he is and derives from the goal of our relationship which is to grow and bring the best of eachother we will split for our own good.

Some good points, but what is it that you do to avoid confirmation bias?

MgZedex (not verified) says...

I'm an INTJ-T, but I believe in God. There is obviously a power, that is undeniable. Islam has answered almost all of my questions regarding religion, and has made me believe that there is One True God. Also, I value family and friends. I guess INTJs only care for them when they become too attached to them.

A dude (not verified) says...

Have you checked to see that you might be INTP or INTX? INTP are very similar to INTJ, but however they do believe in higher orders etc. INTX is a combination of INTJ and INTP. Where you have traits from both sides.

Personally, I'm extremely likely to be INTJ. Logic and science is the most interesting to me in arguments. You need to back your argument with facts. If you're not an expert in what you're speaking about, then please do not. Still open to hear your opinion and for being convinced otherwise.

However, unless you can somehow prove that science (bigbang) is false/wrong, I don't see your belief  as compareable as the scientific truth. Yes, Religion has brought a lot of positive things like art, culture, history and a place a lot considers home. However, it had brought a lot of negative things as well. Delaying the society's evolution, ruined potential answers and solutions made in the past, restricting people and controlling people. Let's be real, for people without any answers handed to them, they're likely to find their own answer. The scariest thing is not knowing something without any way of finding the truth. We all understand how religion came to be, but what I don't understand is how it's still so dominant in society. Why are people still being controlled and restricted by it? Go ahead and be religious if it has a meaning to you, but do not let it blind your decisionmaking and make you ignorant of other beliefs (truth).

 I literally spent so much time restructing this comment to make it more suited and worth it.

Sahar (not verified) says...

mate, i am most definetly intj and i most defintetly belive in a higher diety. Having a certain personality type no matter how rare it is, doesnt restrict you're spiritual beliefs lmao. Science itself lacks the "facts" to back some of its core theories that build the foundation of science. The Big Bang theory is a classic example, how could such an immense amount of energy explode from apparent nothingness and moreover cause perefectly balanced solar systems without a higher diety controlling everything? Refute that my guy. How has religion has, what, "delayed society's evolution" ??? do u hear yourself

If God existed,people wouldn't even be arguing about it,it would be known by everyone,the same way we don't argue whether the sun exists or not because it is evident! Why doesn't he just come out and end the debate once and for all?He is beyond human understanding??? How would you even know that he is good,maybe he's the opposite.

Allen Perry (not verified) says...

No, God did come to earth, but even working miracles wasn't enough to sway people into becoming followers. Humanity has a fallen nature.

JasonK (not verified) says...

"If you're not an expert in what you're speaking about, then please do not."

That is a Sensor trait, not an Intuitive. Sensors appeal to someone based on credentials rather than what they say. Intuitives care more about the logic of what is said, and not whether the person saying it has credentials that the person recognizes.

Nesi (not verified) says...

Seams like there is a lot of talk about love and god, so here's my perspective as well: 

I don't believe in god. I just don't. No one has ever been able to convince me and all arguments I've heard were fallacies at best or fairytales. I'm open for discussion though, I challenged and changed my principals and beliefs a lot in the past and I know that there might be a possibility that there is one true religion, but I still find that almost unlikely. 

I do believe in love. However, I don't believe in soulmates or the fact that people can only truly fall in love once. But I have been in love and I have been very loyal and as caring as I could be. Unfortunately, it didn't work out and that's fine. Being in love and having someone special in your life feels nice and I'd like to have that someone in my life someday. But I don't mind being on my own as well.

Oh, there is one true church. :)

Answer (not verified) says...

Hi, I didn't really take what Nesi said as wanting to be convinced that there is a God. However, I am an INTJ and I do believe in God. The thing is people...everyone seems to be thinking their is a huge differentiation in the theories available. Why does the bang theory and evolution have to be separate from creationism? In fact if you are a true INTJ you would have read the Bible and scientific information available and would have come to realize there are key points in the Bible that references evolution. Perhaps people don't read different Bible types or direct translations. The biggest problem now-a-days is the lack of education. Some of the main issues people have with the Bible is timing and the creation of stuff. The timing wasn't/isn’t actually days as the Bible references a single day as not a single day if you read the entire Bible. Also, notice in the book of Genesis it says something like, so and so found women of men to be beautiful. It appeared to be referencing that there were different types of humans. Which there were!

 Lastly, I think there are soul mates as well, but we can love and be happy with many people. Love is not the same with anything in life. You love your parents, children, siblings, lovers, and everyone differently. A soul mate is a lover of the soul and a complete connection. I have had 5 deep relationships in my life and out of the 5 one soul mate, and no one has come close to the level of love I had/have for that person. It is literally like a connection of your soul to that person. All the other people I dated were perfect in all aspects, but when I met my soulmate I instantly connected to the person in around 5 minutes or less. The same thing happened to that person as well. It was really like two souls becoming one nearly instantly, and I completely understood that person without words needed.

i understand that you want to be convinced by the words of someone else.... due all respect i dont think this is a good alternative, the idea of believing in god is based upon knowledge, understanding logical aspects of the matter and of course searching for valuable and trustworthy answers.

"I don't believe in god. I just don't." thats what you said right? well i want to ask you why? 

why would someone believe in God ?

why whoudn't someone believe in God?

as you can see every opinion has a reason for it to exist, to be formulated, to be taken into account so what do you think about answering that question first ?

why don't i believe in God?

why am i searching for answers?

why do i want to be convinced?

who should i ask for information regarding the matter?

you see, we cannot build a  belief  that is based on some unknown person's opinion or unverified facts.

if we want truthful and logical and right information we should better search for the righht source .

what do you think ?

I'm an INTJ that thought heavily about this since when I was young, I was a devoted Catholic. God exists in the area of phycology where if we are left leaderless there is still a governing authority over our actions preventing us from commiting insane acts. This puts our minds at rest when things are looking grim allowing us to remain mentally stable preventing us from commiting acts of theft, murder, suicide and so forth. With the belief of unquestionable faith our minds remain in a state of emotional stability.

I don't mean to demean your beliefs but with all due respect, don't you think that governing authority is your conscience. Being and INTJ, I interpret and INTJ to be a person driven by a sense of morality  who loves to think and share their intellectual ideas and discoveries. We are not A-Holes who don't care about what is right. Being a "mastermind" doesn't mean to know everything but to think before doing anything, in my opinion.

I am 40 years old and have an INTJ personality.  I certainly can see how INTJ's are the least likely to have a belief in a higher power.  I myself don't believe in God, rather I know that there is a God.  It would not be enough for me to simply choose to believe and assume that God exists.  I must know.  How do I know? 

What has helped me with this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Yes, you have to at first choose to have a robust belief.  But unlike some other churches, this is only temporary, just to get started.  This is particularly true of reading the Book of Mormon.  If you approach reading it with a willingness to believe, you will begin to know that it is true.  The best part is that at the end of reading, you are invited to pray to ask God yourself if that book is true.  I have done this.  What I know is the Holy Spirit changed my spirit to know that God does exist and that (among other things) the Book of Mormon is true.  If you really following this church's teachings, you will get real answers; not just belief, but to know!

Youe argument of the BOM being true because you just "know" is 100% based on Feeling. The Mormons even say that "you'll FEEL a burning in your bosom" to know their book true. It is very unlikely you are an INTJ if you are making decisions based on Feelings rather than Thinking. Maybe you are an INFJ. The fact that the Book of Mormon was rewritten 5 times in it's first decade would turn any Thinker off.

Believing in love or god is casting doubts on you being an INTJ (or INTP) haha

JasmineLives (not verified) says...

I am an INTJ and also know there is a God. I believe any INTJ would have had their doubts at some point. Who are we not to question it? The connection came when I had several spiritual experiences. The became stronger as I got older and sought Him more. Once you assess that you are not crazy, and you did have a real experience, you will come into acceptance. At that point, I had to realize that there is a God and there are things in this world we will likely never understand. I also know now that God is faithful and reveals Himself and His ways to us if seek Him.

"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

I also know and believe there's God. Doesn't mean you're not a personality type just because something is "less likely".

Since INTJ's are often known to view love differently than most, I thought I'd give my take on it as an INTJ: The ones that I've observed that are really big on stressing love, usually, largely neglect respect, ironically. To me, respect must be the foundation in a relationship, and any "icing" put on top of that is secondary at best -- this I'd refer to as love -- i.e. If a relationship has respect, can it be said to be deficient?

Anonymous intj (not verified) says...

On the subject of "god" and how truth and love supposebly cannot be together--this is wrong, or sort of. In the bible it says that god so loved the (key word) "world" which means he loved all of us equally. Now, the reason truth and love cannot be together for us is that it's biased--if we love one person more than another, then thats not supporting the truth. It essentially means that we "prefer" one person to another becuase of no good reasoning. That's not what it says in the bible. So, if what we think of love is not the truth, then what kind of love is it talking about in christianity? It's talking about moral love. Love that doesn't neccasarily have to be based off of feelings, but can be based of a scense of truth and decensy.

tatjur says...

I am a Christian, and also believe in plural love. However, although I agree that love and respect are not the same thing, really I believe that both are interdependent, there is no other. And tell the truth is not tied to a lack of respect, truth is gone, and we have to pay attention is with a way to pass this truth, I know it's hard to try to understand how some things can be used either by someone, but what it means to love, to observe the other and CHOOSE to take into account their needs, even when you have no sense (you know it's difficult).

👏 yesssssssss  me every time I'm asked to go to church.

Nicholas carriere (not verified) says...

God loved us all that is the difference you have and the truth is love and JC gave himself because of it but not all will go with him only those who repent and only then can salvation be yours  but it's more than that you must know the word and the word must become flesh and love should be at the center of a Christian heat those JC must be in your heart it will be the best thing you can ever know

a few years ago I tested as INTP, but now apparently I'm INTJ. Well, both then and now my Judging and Perceiving were about 50 50, so I guess they're just in balance? Anyway, I majored in Architecture and it seems like it's a good career path for both INTPs and INTJs. :) 

Oof (not verified) says...

Yeah me too. I was a INTP like, 2 years ago and now I am an INTJ. My perception and judging were almost the same too soo guess we are the same.  

Byron (not verified) says...
