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.

For real INTJ people felt this in there heart knew this wasnt made up, if this artical dosent discribe you to a T, YOU ARE NOT A TRUE INTJ.

Troy W (not verified) says...

I didn't feel it in my heart. I thought it to be logical. 

Woody1967 (not verified) says...

I hate to be cynical, or perhaps not, but you are not a true INTJ if you consistently misspell words and improperly use words like saying "your" when you mean "you're".

More than likely, the poster is an ELL, or English language learner. I'm an educator  and see this type of writing  on a daily basis. Don't be so quick to judge.

I took the test 3x because each time I thought of Different answers each time I was putting my past to much in perspective answering the test questions,but I don't think you should put too far of a past in perspective when taking this personality test by the 3rd time I realized to answer the questions based on who I am at the current moment or what I've become in the time frame of over a year to answer the questions and not to reflect too much on past reactions because we are who we are and who we once were we will never be... if your a true intj,🙇🏾‍♂️ point i was trying to make is, 3x i took the test injt was top2 all 3x but i didnt want it, i wanted something rarer but it stuck to me call it god but this artical helped me be feel understood for once and told me consious truths that came to life through another persons words

im ready for a new personality type. this is just ruining my life lol and the description is really overly smug for this personality type. its too accurate and too lonely.

steven a weber (not verified) says...

After reading the comments of fellow INTJ's, I find numerous startling similarities often regarding uncommon traits, yet see how we are all shaped by numerous factors: some genetic,environmental, organic, etc. And it wouldn't surprise me if one's type is genetic: I see this type to a good extent in my father and son. Also there are obvious degrees involved in each individual. I'm likely not your average INTJ in some distinct ways: I'm a virtual misanthrope. I despise convention, tradition, formalities, pomp, Guru's(or other revered individuals), mainstream mentality, and so much more that passes as socially acceptable. Ironically people can mistake me as gregarious at times--moods and energy play a part in this. I feel myself a fish out of water here and have since childhood. I rarely identify with another on deep issues. I've virtually given up trying to meet a partner after living almost 40 yrs alone(was married 10 yrs happily) and prefer to live alone at this point. Life seems an absurd and cruel joke and given another shot at it, I'd pass. It's likely obvious now how I differ from many INTJ's, though I acknowledge our undeniable(and often uncommon) similar traits. Spending so much time alone and in my head has undoubtedly made me a bit extreme in my perspective. Last, but not least, I'm a militant minimalist: it permeates every aspect of my life: less is better, to the extreme good in nothingness. Conversely, "Somethingness" or the world as we know it, detracts from it. Do I care what anyone thinks of all of this? I think that you know the answer to this, but I am curious how this strikes other INTJ,s. 

ChillMusicianDad (not verified) says...

I have been alone my entire life. I would not be surprised if I was told I was the first human alien Hybrid because that is more plausible than being related to these creatures that can wash their pain away and put on a happy face around others. We should not have to change ourselves to fit into their square hole. That is what i want to know, Are we the first intj`s? I don`t think so. Have these "humans" ever given a minute to changing for us?

Others have expressed the same regarding life: Jack London wrote, " Life lies so as to live" and "Life is a perpetual lie telling process". And regarding it's "purpose", he wrote(in a conversation with the "noseless one"), "...certainly it was not all in vain?!"to which the noseless one responded, " It was all based on a lie", Jack replying, "But it was a vital lie!", to which the noseless one retorted,"And what is a "vital lie" but a lie?!"[ Re: John Barleycorn,circa 1913]. Tolstoy expressed a similar sentiment,"One can only live when life intoxicates them-- once they are sober they cannot help but see that it is all a stupid and cruel joke". And Henry Miller, "Life is a cosmic joke"...the joke is on those who love and validate life(correctly spelled, lief--since it is based on the root word "lie"!). I hope that you find this edifying

I found it comical when you said "I'm likely not your average INTJ" and then proceeded to list a multitude of things that I can relate to despite the fact that our demographics are probability 180 degrees apart. I'm Caribbean, F, 24, and I am very alone in my family (even extended) as an INTJ. 
The one thing that I couldn't relate to is minimalism. I understand why it can be a good thing, but I like to invent random things or fix things in innovative ways so I end up collecting things that I find useful for future projects.

steven a weber (not verified) says...

Minimalism doesn't seem to be a characteristic of INTJ's

Godot (not verified) says...

Dostoyevsky wrote,"If someone proved to me that Christ is outside the truth and that in reality truth were outside of Christ, then I should prefer to remain with Christ, rather than with the truth." (Christ representing to him the most glorious embodiment of love). This statement well illustrates what all face in life: Truth vs Love. The incompatibility of the two. Unamuno echoed Kierkegaard when he said,"Truth for truth's sake?!! This is inhumane!!" Inhumane, as truth stands naked and indifferent to man and his world. Thus, truth isn't vital, as it has no need for life - no need to validate it. It is the dispassionate rationale of an INTJ that leads them to see this, and thus see that this ultimately ends in despair, via negation. Thus, leaving only love (via faith/hope) to save themselves. Love, thus proves itself vital. This impersonal rationale of the extreme INTJ is at odds with empirical reality, showing man and his world to be absurd. Absurd, because the two cannot be reconciled. Because Love and Truth cannot be reconciled. Is not this dispassionate, impersonal rationale of the extreme INTJ their guiding light in life? Is it any wonder that "Love" may feel questionable to them? Yet, whom can accept and endure despair? May it not be that the "purpose" of life is detachment -- to let it go-- to die to it, trusting in the innate and eternal good of Truth at any cost, validating only the resultant stillness of nothingness, valuing the eternal peace of it over Love/ attachment of life? And naturally this 'Knowing' of peace, via Truth, is an unknowing of the unrest of the duality of consciousness, as the self, or the subject( in the subject/object consciousness), has been negated. Metaphorically: the drop returns to the ocean. Nothing is more real than Nothing

This was beautiful to read. Thank you. 

JT1225 (not verified) says...

I thought it was interesting that the INTJ is the least likely to believe in a superior being. Being and INTJ and Christian myself, I have read a lot of arguments for and against God, creation vs evolution, and many other topics. I think that the rational argument is more easily made for God than against. I suggest reading books from Gary Habbermass about the historicity of the resurrection, or some of C S Lewis's works (also an INTJ). I disagree with your post that we love and truth are in some way against each other. Jesus called himself the truth (John 14 6-7), and without reason, I don't think people can make a good judgement on what is true out of love. 

Myra says...

Dear my INTJ Christian friend, 

I thank God for the wisdom, knowledge and discernment he's given onto you to speak the truth so that no one is being misled. I believe in Christian doctrines: God the Father, God the Son Lord Jesus Christ and God the Holy Spirit-our triune God-is Love himself; without God/Love(John 3:16, For God so loved the world, he gave his one and only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes shall not perish but have everlasting life.) eternal salvation/redemption/deliverance are no where to be found; humanity would have been doomed to hell for God's wrath. Since Jesus Christ is the truth, light and way, Christ as the God in flesh finds those whom are lost and gives love to those whom are needy in love. I believe in what you shared and agree with your theological claim that indeed love and truth are inalienable in Christian doctrines. Glory to God, amen. 
 

Your Christian INTJ friend.

I'm also a christian. I know a few atheists and agnostics, and they usually take joy in pointing out to me how everything has an answer or explanation. I point out that everything being cut and dry, neatly packaged and answered, is just too easy an answer for me. I believe obvious answers are to test faith. 

purpleperson says...

@Godot

I have been thinking about what you call "truth vs love" alot lately. You just called out all my deepest thoughts online lol. I feel like, to enjoy life to the fullest I would have to stop being so obsessed with finding the cold hard truth in everything. But for some reason it seems irresponsible to not. I'd be a happier, lovlier person if I wasn't so cynical tho. yeet.

Godot (not verified) says...

Your honesty is appreciated and refreshing. Naturally if one loves truth in an absolute sense ( i.e. as their salvation), they will hate it's antithesis, as this negates it. And naturally the antithesis of truth is a lie/deceit/deception, which via justice, is worthy of hate. Only qualified, relative, incomplete "truth" can embrace love --The two aren't compatible, as they are exclusive (in their complete form). Truth/justice vs Love/compassion

greg says...

Hey Brother INTJ,  From what I have gleaned from your writing, I can say that I truly know how you feel.  I have been in that spot already but I had to face my emotions.  I know you,  I know you are very reluctant to go there. If my assessment is correct we are close in age,  I may be your junior, but I feel it is essential that you make peace with it all. I am in this process,  actively for about 4 years,  it is not an easy task. I'm a much fuller person,  I except that I'm flawed. Each day presents a challenge to feed my spirit (my internal me) by bettering myself personally. Please,  as the inquisitor, do not accept that it was all for naught. 

Hms34 (not verified) says...

The INTJ does have a quick wit, but it's very dark humor. People can't tell when I'm joking vs being serious, and are often offended. There must be some other Coen Bros fans among us.

I do think we pick our battles; I don't fight the losing ones just because it's the right thing to do.

Sometimes we have to give up more than a little to move forward.

Traditions, while mildly reassuring, don't mean very much, and are very over-rated.

As for Clinton, I'm not a fan, and, I do think she is an INTJ. I've seen some reports that JFK was also among us, but that's not conclusive. 

Finally, INTJ are immensely resourceful under adversity. It saved my life, in fact. I take no credit, born that way.

I seeked out a way of figuring out myself, I already knew myself, but did not notice the extent of my skills. I knew that my perosonailty was very differnet from everyone else I thought about the future, concepts, ideas while everyone else it felt like where stuck chasing material. I felt unknown or unheard, my ideas to big to people to understand. I constanly had to remove infromation to help people understand yet, to me they dont't. I understood then that they and I were diffenrent, they could not see what I saw in spite of themselves. I understand how great minds must feel because I may as well be a weaker one to some extent. 

HelenaS06 (not verified) says...

This article is basically tbe blueprint to my brain haha. As a female INTJ I often struggle with finding close female friends. The friends I've maintained are all those I've known since childhood and whom understand who I am to a T. The rest of the time I find the people around me too shallow and I get bored of their company extremely quickly. I'm currently studying dentistry where I expected to meet alot of likeminded individuals, but somehow I've yet to meet anyone in my cohort that I can closely identify with and its honestly extremely disheartening. The same issues I have with friendship also extend to relationships. While I can easily socialise/talk to someone, I find it difficult to form meaningful bonds due to my rigid expectations and my fickleness. My social anxiety is well-disguised but when it comes to ending relationships (since I know they wont work in the long run) I find myself having constant panic attacks while worrying I'll hurt my partners feelings and trying to construct a breakup timeline/plan of action. I'm thinking of breaking up with my current partner due to the same reason each of my previous relationships has ended (feelings fading, disparate longterm goals).

At this point I'm pretty sure I'm just not meant to have relationships, as they cause me more trouble and anxiety than confort/joy. I would also contemplate a career change due to boredom, however from a practical standpoint (employment, moneh, lifestyle), there arent any alternative careers I can pursue without having effectively wasted 2yrs of my life in uni.

As pathetic as it sounds, the freedom of the internet is my sanctuary

-A resigned INTJ

ZugZwang__ (not verified) says...

I am a female INTJ as well and everything you have stated, I too struggle with.

I change my life every 2-3 years, break ups are filled with this weird process of "building the wall" of separation, I find it hard to relate to others...especially females. Often, I feel like females inherently DONT like me. I don't know if it's an inability to relate or whatever, but it's odd. 
I recently changed my career from Nursing to Data Analysis and I couldn't be happier. I threw away years of schooling and money for a chance and it worked out extremely well. My advice would be master or at least feel like you have gotten everything out of the current career you're in and make your next move. You can always go back if it doesn't work...but I think our INTJ-ness makes us more resilient. 

I find sanctuary in the internet as well...it's so comforting to know there are others writhing in their own existence trying to figure out why we are the way we are. 
Best of luck. 

R.S. (not verified) says...

I too am INTJ female. It is nice to read other INTJ females challenges and patterns in career and relationships. I change my career path every 3-5 years. I’m in computer science right now, heading back to school for physics. I am WAY more comfortable around men then women. I am tired of people telling me that my being just fine alone , living life to the fullest alone, means there is something wrong with me. There’s nothing wrong with being ok with myself. I often get the same responses stated here about being ‘intimidating”. I think that if I’m intimidating it has nothing to do with me or what I’m doing, and that it’s other people’s issues.

I am a Christian. BUT my views on Christianity are so far from mainstream. I often tell myself “Please Jesus, save me from your followers. They don’t get it”

R.S.,

I identify with a lot of what you said. As another female INTJ, I struggle to foster long-term friendships with other women. The women I do have long relationships with have similar personalities to me, as many women fail to identify with me whatsoever. I also live alone and independently support myself, financially and otherwise, and have had many family and friends comment on how odd they find it (I'm a 23 yr old woman living in the South, so these kinds of comments are unfortunately expected). I have been single for the majority of my life as almost every man finds my independent and strong personality 'intimidating' but those that feel that way about me usually have very boring personalities from my point of few.

I am also a Christian, specifically a Southern Baptist Christian, and wholeheartedly agree with not identify with mainstream Christian views. I live in the 'Bible Belt' and have found many of the Christians that surround me to be too judgemental and ignorant, with an unwillingness to listen to reason or reconsider their thoughts and interpretations of the Bible. I do find solace in my own personal relationship with the Lord, as he can understand me in ways me piers cannot. This may be why I am such a devout Christian—only he knows!

Nostradamus (not verified) says...

I'm a male INTJ, and it's really interesting to read these female INTJ perspectives - especially about relationships and work.  My wife and I have been married for 23 years, and have two great HS teenagers.  My son is an INTJ, so it's been really interesting for me to watch him grow up, and exasperating for my wife, because he's me, version 2.0  :-)

My wife is most certainly not an INTJ (she's an E-something), but it was abundantly clear when we first started dating that we were wired very differently.  We were both in our late 20's, had been thru some previous relationships, so were savvy to the ways in which we were different.  I recognized that she drew energy from interacting with people, and she saw that I don't care for superficial interaction (small talk).  I recall one instance when my wife was in college (she went to school late, and was 30 when she graduated), and we had some of her female classmates over for dinner.  I cooked and we had a great time, but after about 3 hours, I was tapped out on playing the role of extrovert.  We lived in Miami at the time, and the group decided they wanted to go out to South Beach and hit the clubs.  NOT my idea of fun, but I agreed to drive them to the club and wait until they were ready to head home at 2 AM or whenever, and drive them back. My wife's friends thought it was really kind of me to do this (pre Uber days), but in reality, I knew I'd have several hours with a good book at a coffee shop with nobody bothering me so I could think.  My wife knew exactly my motivation, and we've been on the same page for a long time:-)  I go to social events with her all the time, which I generally enjoy for a while, but she knows I'll get to the point where I've had enough and need to bail out.  Depending on the circumstances, I'll Uber home on my own, and she doesn't view that as a slight towards her at all.  She knows I'll be doing somethign like working on one of my vintage cars, or listening to an audio book while I work on an old dive watch when she gets home - even if it's 1:30 in the morning.  In fact, if she sees that work is getting to me, she'll tell me to take a weekend off and go surfing or take a class of some kind to clear my mind.  She's a very independent woman and doesn't need me hanging around all the time, and totally knows when I need to recharge. 

 

We both have very similar views on raising kids, finances, religion (or lack thereof) and a balanced partnership, which makes things pretty easy.  The professions I've chosen are ones where I get to do a lot of long range thinking, analysis, and building fixing other people's poorly considered solutions (mechanical engineer by trade).  Similar to you, I move roles every 2-3 years, just so that I have a chance to go back to the beginning of the learning curve, which I find intellectually stimulating.  I make a good living as a strategic planner and consultant for large corporations, because for some reason I have the ability to conceptualize and see things on the horizon that others don't.  When I was younger it used to exasperate me that no one else seemed to see what I thought was obvious.  Over time I realized that I was going to have to champion the things I thought were right at work, since no one else got it.  Learning to navigate that dynamic has been a lifelong apprenticeship.  The area of leadership that has been the toughest part of being an INTJ is managing large teams of people who are not INTJs.  It's super frustrating to see people making decisions based on feelings/emotions when the facts are right in front of them.  They also don't seem to look to the horizon very often, which means that they make a lot of tactical/short-term decisions that I know will need to be redone at some point down the line.  The remedy is finding a few managers and Sr. managers who get it and let them work closely with the teams to coach and develop decision making.  It's still mentally exhausting dealing with a staff, so whenver possible, I prefer jobs that allow me to to work on small teams or by myself.

I've heard the "intimidating" characterizatino before as well - same as you.  I never try to intimidate people, I just like to understand their thought proces and underlying assumptions.  I'm told I can be pretty direct when asking questions, but I'm not in to flowery language - would rather just get to the point. 

I delight in watching my wife and daughter participate in the things that they enjoy, and that energize them. It's just not for me.  As an example, my daughter is a cheerleader for her HS, and I go to the games to watch her cheer.  I hang out with one or two of the other dads, but there's no way you'd catch me with the cheer moms who sit in a monolithic block of seats at the games.

OK, that was kind long and rambling, but I weighed in to make the point that I've been happily married for over 20 years to an awesome woman who gets how I'm wired and hasn't tried to change me.  I like to think I do the same for her.  In terms of a venn diagram, I'd say we overlap about 70%, but the other 30% we do our own things to keep ourselves sane :-)

You don't need to know (not verified) says...

I'm an INTJ that was often praised for my work but find it difficult to find a place to work that doesn't understand what I'm trying to do. I studied in Mechanical Design but graduated durring the recession and found it hard to find work. That was a crippling blow but then I got a job where I became a shift manager which sparked my interest on how inefficient companies can be. I started looking into to psychological and sociological cause and effect outcomes of the employees and their work based on the companies training and morale of the employees. It's terrible watching the bad desicions what bosses make and what they cover up with no apparent ability to do anything about it. My sister is an INTJ and she is in the same boat. If she leaves her company it will be nearly impossible to replace her and her employer does not realize that.

Hmmmm (not verified) says...

Just curious- what specifically do some people think disqualifies HRC as an INTJ? Interesting! Thanks.

BLG (not verified) says...

Spot on. I'm within the 1% of total female population, and fall within that overrepresented female business owner catagory, and am also a doctor. I'm kind of relieved to know that there might be a reason that I cannot relate to women who are outside of my peer group, which includes basically all of them. It's a lonely place to be, but then again, I sort of like it that way :)

Lewis Cooke (not verified) says...

The description is pretty much spot on in almost every aspect, to the point I am wondering if I should research the other groups to ensure this is similar to a horoscope where every category overlaps to degree so people buy in to.

 

Fortunately I've found my way into a corporate environment early on where at a senior enough level the traits described are encouraged and valued.

 

Interestingly as a child/ teen I struggled to be motivated at school as I wasn't convinced learning within the constraints of the schooling environment was the most efficient way, so much wasted time. 

As I started working and had the same thoughts, the winner for me was having the ability to present my findings without ego, to offer opportunities for improvement and operational excellence without painting myself as the architect to be praised.

I've only had 1 long term relationship which I've maintained for 10+ years, I often think I would have struggled relationship wise if I hadn't found someone compatible so early on.

I cut out both parents before I was 20 as I felt they would only be a negative influence on my life, and my circle of friends can be counted on one hand and has been the same for 10-15 years, I socialise easily, but keep people at a metaphorical boundary whereby dealings are transactional.

I recently tried to introduce OKRs into my personal life, yet to see if it brings the benefits I hope for.

steven a weber (not verified) says...

I'm 66 yrs old and I don't remember ever being confronted with such startling information before: you've virtually described my life to a T! I always assumed that I was alone in the world(abie normal), a true "fish out of water" here. Why the great consolation in this new epiphany, I'm not sure yet, since life won't be any easier or pleasant. Upon reading the other entries, I find to a large degree similar revelations, but yours was particularly uncanny. This will give me plenty to contemplate for quite some time. Thank you, my dear clone!

RnR (not verified) says...

Have you noticed - there arent as many blogs out there on ESTPs, or the other tyeps. they are too busy doing stuff, to bother about analysing everything.  Think its telling that there are so many intj blogs out there. 

Enjoyed reading the posts - they are reassuringly like my own thoughts.  I had exactly the same thought on the "INTJ  is not an acronym. It is an 'initialism'" comment.  Agreed Hilary Clinton is in no way an INTJ. 

I am glad to have found a source of like minded people - If anyone wnats to start a whatsapp group i would be interested - i need another intj contact to start one, and as a typical iNTJ, i dont have that many ;)

Hi, guys. It was really interesting to read your comments and feel i am not the only one struggling from myself , "Don't know what to be when grow up" and have an issues with relationships. 

Would be great to talk to each of you more to know ourselfs better through experience of similar people. If you are reading this, you can add my whats up +380973908328 and we'll make a group chat or just have a private talk whatever. It is not easy to be an INTJ, so use this info as a key to yourself, your career options, improve your relationships part and other weaknesses. Be good, take care.

Chuck INTJ (not verified) says...

Seriously, why do all these INTJ blogs say Hillary Clinton is an INTJ? She isn't. Do you all just copy and paste the same content?

Buster (not verified) says...

Thanks Chuck, totally agree. HRC really enjoys the limelight and the attention - these things are not so important to an INTJ. 

Heather26 (not verified) says...

I cringe whenever I see that Hillary Clinton and I share the same type, so I appreciate this comment very much.  Thank you.

Wait a minute... (not verified) says...

She strikes me a very much being the female version of INTJ. She smart, sharp & quick witted, takes things seriously, knows what she is talking about & presents it all as factual logic with zero charisma. If that's not an INTJ thing, then I don't know what is.

IN BW BG SH USG (not verified) says...

As INTJ we can read other people, it is ironic that the people who think they can read us think that Hillary Clinton is one of us. 

Macdub (not verified) says...

I'd dispute that INTJ's are quick witted; INTJ's are intelligent and have wit but I don't think that we are naturally quick with it. We don't like to use quick-wit (unless we are absolutely 110% sure we are correct) - we'd prefer to examine, think over, logic-check what's been said and then respond fully and with rationale and reason. We don't like giving quick-wit because for us it feels wrong as its too spontaneous. 

BLG (not verified) says...

True. I do not like Hiliary Clinton because of her poor character, but she chose to nurture that independent of her God-given personality type. Her character does not encompass all of who she is as a person, and neither does INTJ. 

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.

Yes, the 16 are over-arching character types - it includes both the "basic" AND the natural extension of that into stereotypical ideals, the "ends" of typeical/average trajectories.

 If you want to understand all the details, possible variations... More study would be neccesary than one website for starters!

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.
