The INTJ Personality Type

INTJs are analytical problem-solvers, eager to improve systems and processes with their innovative ideas. They have a talent for seeing possibilities for improvement, whether at work, at home, or in themselves.

Often intellectual, INTJs enjoy logical reasoning and complex problem-solving. They approach life by analyzing the theory behind what they see, and are typically focused inward, on their own thoughtful study of the world around them. INTJs are drawn to logical systems and are much less comfortable with the unpredictable nature of other people and their emotions. They are typically independent and selective about their relationships, preferring to associate with people who they find intellectually stimulating.

What does INTJ stand for?

INTJ is an acronym used to describe one of the sixteen personality types created by Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers. It stands for Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging. INTJ indicates a person who is energized by time alone (Introverted), who focuses on ideas and concepts rather than facts and details (iNtuitive), who makes decisions based on logic and reason (Thinking) and who prefers to be planned and organized rather than spontaneous and flexible (Judging). INTJs are sometimes referred to as Mastermind personalities because of their strategic, logical way of thinking.

INTJ Values and Motivations

INTJs are perceptive about systems and strategy, and often understand the world as a chess board to be navigated. They want to understand how systems work, and how events proceed: the INTJ often has a unique ability to foresee logical outcomes. They enjoy applying themselves to a project or idea in depth, and putting in concentrated effort to achieve their goals.

INTJs have a hunger for knowledge and strive to constantly increase their competence; they are often perfectionists with extremely high standards of performance for themselves and others. They tend to have a keen interest in self-improvement and are lifelong learners, always looking to add to their base of information and awareness.

How Others See the INTJ

INTJs are typically reserved and serious, and seem to spend a lot of time thinking. They are curious about the world around them and often want to know the principle behind what they see. They thoroughly examine the information they receive, and if asked a question, will typically consider it at length before presenting a careful, complex answer. INTJs think critically and clearly, and often have an idea about how to do something more efficiently. They can be blunt in their presentation, and often communicate in terms of the larger strategy, leaving out the details.

Although INTJs aren’t usually warm or particularly gregarious, they tend to have a self-assured manner with people based on their own security in their intelligence. They relate their ideas with confidence, and once they have arrived at a conclusion they fully expect others to see the wisdom in their perceptions. They are typically perfectionists and appreciate an environment of intellectual challenge. They enjoy discussing interesting ideas, and may get themselves into trouble because of their take-no-prisoners attitude: if someone’s beliefs don’t make logical sense, the Mastermind typically has no qualms about pointing that out.

Well I'm an intj too. I have a reason to believe that there is a God. The world seems to be so coordinated and there must be a coordinator. The Jewish God has proven to be so real. I take a look at the harbinger by Jonathan cahn it was an eye opener. How things are so coordinated. The exact date timeline and patterns its like the universe has been run and program by this Deity. My thoughts

" incompability" (as you put it), and faith, is at best an overreach. Deserves a rethink.

Because of the God debate, I have decided to post about this

The excistence of God cannot be proved, but it cannot be disproved, one personal idea that I had about him was that he exists in more dimensions than us (not parallel universe, but more like up and down). If he did exist in more dimensions then it would make sense because he would have complete power over this univrese and be able to control it at will, it would also make sense of why it says that the Earth is a disk in the bible, because it would appear that way to him, he would ba able to travel through time, and be able to enter and leave our universe at will. While the idea of 5+ dimensions cannot be proved physically, Math has rarely ever failed when it comes to physics, so even though it cannot be proved 100%, it cannot be disproved 100%.

The reason for the name was because I didn't feel like typing something real in.

Vulcan (not verified) says...

So many like minds in one place. Must post. 

Religion: Tough concept as our personality needs proof. See something you can't explain (ghost, spirit, etc...) and after much thought opinions change in to belief in a higher power. 

Organized religion is still a "no" for me. Waste of time. Lemmings. 

Emotions: Yes. Rarely shown and surprising to us when it happens. Depicting sheer beauty in an abstract way. Some odd examples are the green day musical when channel surfing on TV, a thought provoking passage in a book, a outdoor scene in a foreign land, a dog's behavior, etc...

Less than 10 of these come to mind in a lifetime.  

Love: Yes. Difficult to choose a mate. Very selective.  Dated a large number of playthings before being able to find a woman that was more of a challenge and fun to be with and make fun of. Very loyal. 

Have a son that is an INTJ. Glad to be here to coach. Wish I had that in my youth. It is tough being the "alien" outsider that has different interests than other kids and bored with structured curriculums. 

Work: IT Executive. Great pay. Bored. Find interests elsewhere.  Important to have work / life balance. Took many years to discover this. 

Rock on INTJs. Embrace it!

 

 

 

 

 

Coffeerat (not verified) says...

Vulcan: your post resonated with me on so many levels. At nearly half a century old, I'm proud that I'm learning to find and embrace more emotions and over time have learned to be more of an extrovert. Also as a female INTJ, I've had to become more adept at reading and empathizing with other people's thoughts and emotions. I'm out to prove that INTJ's are capable of lifelong growth and learning to manage the more troublesome & rigid aspects of our personalities.  (The only letter off-the-charts firm in my own testing is the N--that's not budging).

Extrapolator (not verified) says...

@ vulcan - sounds like me almost to a T.  I do have emotions, sometimes quite intense, but try to mitigate them since they lead to most of the problems people have if you let them rule you. Nice to hear from others who are like me.

Paul Sacco (not verified) says...

Interesting that you go by the handle "Vulcan". I see Vulcans as ISTJ. 

Doomed (not verified) says...

I took the test several times. I'm an INTJ. Unfortunately. This is a burden because I do not see human relationships as worth while and only have friends to seem normal, and those only every 6 months. If i go to gathering, I look for the dog. As they seem to understand me. And for some reason I'm very good with animals.  Emotions are always in check (if any). Most of the time, I feel netural. I always look at people that react emotionally as inferior. As emotions are a burden and don't produce favourable outcomes. Definetly need intellectual stimulus, find things boring very quickly. New things are a must constantly. I'm also greedy.

  I also internalize a lot of things and only share my thinking to quality check my logic. Intelectual disrepect from others in not percieved well, I of course an engineer, already proved my intelect just by doing a tough job. People also dont get away with disrespect as I retaliate is some form, not immedietly of course. That would cause to much a scene.  

I typically enjoy chaos, tough situations, complexity (but not detail as that is tedious, repetative and boring). And finding a solution. I'm defyant of the norm, and enjoy pointing out people's flawed logic, or unreasonable beliefs like GOD. 

I look at weakness in others to fix. Sometimes this comes off insensitive as I look at others and go, dont you know you need to live like this or be this smart.. Big ego and superiority complex is promenent. I suppose with all master minds.  

Having said this. My service to society is to help others as I am forever not needing help. I fix the people all around me and we grow as a team. It is easier to fix them then listen to their problems. Which is paintstacking and I hate it. Always forward. I will create systems that either make me and others money/ create jobs. I also must be ahead of the norm. The normal way of life does not interest me nor can I fit in as I'm meant for greatness. Which I already have. 

Joanne H (not verified) says...

I'm an INTJ female and believe in God.  I read the Bible cover-to-cover and think it's logical and matches historical and geographical evidences, not to mention the amazing accurate fulfillment of prophecies.

The birth of Jesus Christ fulfilled more than 300 scriptures down to his birth place (Bethlehem - Micah 5), where he'll flee to (Egypt), where he will grow up (Nazareth) and where he'll minister (Sea of Galilee) and finally how he'll die (Pierced for our transgressions - Isaiah 53, Zechariah 12).  I truly believe in the future prohecy of how He'll come back (in the sky where everyone will see him - Zechariah 14).  

Of course, nothing beats having a personal relationship with God himself, and Him answering my prayers throughout my life and working His miracles of healing and blessings.  

This leads to true faith and belief, and once internalized in the INTJ's values and belief system, is something that no one else can cause the INTJ to refute.  

 

 

   

Caligirl (not verified) says...

I should've known I was an INTJ when I dumped my high school boyfriend for misspelling his love letters to me! I always dated men who were polar opposites- very much extroverts with high intensity and married my complete opposite for sure but it somehow works. I think I got lucky in being an INTJ woman but being 6' tall seems to make people take me seriously from the get-go. I'm super self-aware and constantly analyzing my actions which I don't think really fits but I do love a challenge, don't wear my emotions and like logic - definitely a weirdo! 

Annatar (not verified) says...

ReDesign (not verified) says...

Amen Joanne!! I too am a female INTJ and agree with everything you said. Prophecy is being fulfilled now to this day and you & I will see Jesus soon it seems. 
 

For those who reject the idea of a Savior who came and sacrificially died to redeem us of our sins on a cross and rose from the dead 3 days later... to you I challenge that you pray and ask the Lord to help you see(believe) and He will. And my transformed life only happened 14 years ago (in 50s now). So I know firsthand the power of believing in a Living God!!! Wouldn't go back for anything this world has to offer. 
 

As for the INTJ profile - it's fitting to a T for me. My greatest challenge is dealing with people who can't and won't try to understand me especially not comprehending how I'm ok with me as I am. I'm not needy nor do I need spotlight nor do I need a big fan club of friends. I understand the value of life that I was created by God with these characteristics and am valuable in His eyes. That's the only validation any of us need. Know your true identity and trust in the Creator who gave us air in our lungs and hung every star in the heavens.  Life is always about creating something with meaning and purpose that serves a greater good. 

God said - Those who hope in Me will not be disappointed. Isaiah 49:22,23

     To add to that in the book of Daniel the coming of Jesus is prophesied to the exact year. The Angel Gabriel tells Daniel that 62 weeks will pass from the temple to the coming of the Messiah, and it was 62 weeks of years from the laying of the temples foundation after the return from the exile to the birth of Jesus.

Joanne, I'm an INTJ female and also believe in God.  I wholeheartedly agree with you on the following:

"Of course, nothing beats having a personal relationship with God himself, and Him answering my prayers throughout my life and working His miracles of healing and blessings.  

This leads to true faith and belief, and once internalized in the INTJ's values and belief system, is something that no one else can cause the INTJ to refute. "

Goju Ryu says...

The big problem for an INTJ in meeting God is the analysis habit. I have education in geology, forestry and electromechanical engineering technology, so I'm a scientifically thinking guy. Before my moment of faith, I went out of my way to refute any Christian I could find. It was all bullshit and couldn't be proved. Then, I met Jesus Christ. Two visons within minutes of each other; one where He looked me straight in the eyes and knew everything about me, and the other as He walked away, looking back over his shoulder as if to say, "You coming or what?" I wasn't looking for these. It shook me right up. And then it got worse, gifts of the Holy Spirit, healings, demonic possession and having that fixed, Christians just popping out of the woodwork (like showing up in the most remote bushcamp I could find in northern Ontario where I got to do my INTJ thing by working alone doing forest engineering, and along comes some intinerant pastor) and "It's God! Hey, how ya doing?" I went on to work in Fiber optic research and development, white board manufacturing, glass window r&d and manufacturing etc. with minds that dwarfed my own. And then I discovered that I could write, 12 novels later I determined that it was the only pastime that covered all my bases. A solid 30 year marriage with 2 launched and successful daughters...and love. Wow, that love thing. I hate to admit it, but the best things in life defy analysis...God and love. But, in 1 of my novels, in the first chapter, a little girl dies, crosses the universe, meets Jesus, comes back to life, and gets to see her body made up of the northern lights...because hey, I'm INTJ.

 

Doomed (not verified) says...

These are not INTJ traits. INTJ's do not feel anything. They don't find god. The concept of God cannot be proven in a material world. You had a hallucination. 

Bazinga (not verified) says...

Now you seem to be a man who appreciates what we can prove and disprove. Now, explain to me how you can prove that he had a hallucination? You can neither prove or disprove the existence of god so stop trying, I'm getting a headache from this comments section

Yeah but also can't disprove him either considering that he would be all powerful and could control everything scientific

Aiko (not verified) says...

I've taken this test repeatedly, and on all but one occasion, tested as an INTJ (the other time was INTP, and I usually end up with a J rating of 1%).

An interesting conversation overall, but for the most part, I find it frustrating to be this personality type.  From what I have observed, the traits I have would work better, or at least be taken more seriously, in a male.  People, at best, don't seem to know what to do with someone like me.  I have never dated--partly because my standards are apparently high, and partly because most of the people who have been interested in me were...poor intellectual matches.  Among other issues.

A lot of this thread seems to be devoted to a discussion about our spiritual beliefs.  So I will put it this way.  Do I believe god exists?  Yes.  So do other so-called 'higher powers'.  However, I see no need to worship him or any other deity I have studied.  The mythology behind most faiths is inconsistent at best, and I cannot bring myself to support it.  On the one hand, I envy those who can place faith in something beyond themselves; it seems like it would be a comfort in a world on the verge of going off the rails.  Yet I do not fear death, which lessens the need for that belief.

I am spiritual, but my thoughts do not fit a specific system.  It works for me.  And though I enjoy a good debate about this and other topics, it's usually unproductive if the sole purpose is to convince the other party.  To explore the whys and hows of belief, and to examine the simlarities behind its structure and internal logic, is fun--but only if all parties are receptive.

Tami C (not verified) says...

It was frustrating for me as well. My quest to find someone equal in intensity and depth has been challenging. I find companionship in authors and interviews of leaders. The people who understand me best are people I haven't met. What has helped me is shifting my desire for mirroring to a desire for acceptance. I understand now I am not the easiest person to be friends with. I enjoy my space and I am very self-reliant. This is off-putting for people who enjoy more interdependence and even codependency. The people I enjoy the most accept me even when they don't understand me, that has been the greatest gift. I offer the same now. I've learned to be less critical and accept my idealistic expectations are not practical. I accept that mirroring in not necessary for a healthy relationship, but it does make a more interesting one lol. I've learned healthy is good enough for any relationship. Intriguing is a bonus.

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.

Unicorn woman INTJ (not verified) says...

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...

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.

 

spicy (not verified) says...

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.

 

Julia Connell (not verified) says...

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

Maggie Hamm (not verified) says...

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.

sweet pea (not verified) says...

You sound like a real INTJ, just like me! But I need to remember that I was once young and naive and tried my hand at faith -- being a true INTJ I failed miserably! So I must not be ruthless dealing with the "faithful" as they will likely come around if they are indeed true INTJ's

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.

Doomed (not verified) says...

The concept is yet to be proved. A book is not proof. It is written by people. The problem with god is that, the concept is immaterial not bound by universal law. Since we are, we can never observe such a thing as god. The laws of the universe do not suspend for you to experience "God". if you do it is part of your imagination and cannot be repeated or observed by someone else. I mean what is more likely? Universal law being suspended when Jesus died and rose again or the story being made up. Death is terminal for 100% of the people. Same for the Quran, what is more likely? Universal law being suspended and an illeterate man (Mohamed) getting possessed by God for 30 years reciting the Quran or it being made up? t It is all a lie. Logical, man made, lie. Designed for comfort. Any INTJ worth their salt does not believe in god. Logical systems do not allow faith in the supernatural. 

The Big 5 (not verified) says...

"Any INTJ worth their salt does not believe in god." - Doomed

So, apparently Sir Isaac Newton is not worth his salt then.

Newton was an INTJ, and he spent more time studying Theology and Christianity than Science. In fact, he even tried his best extracting scientific theories from the Holy Bible (I forgot if he had failed or succeeded). A ton of scientists, both in the past and present, believes in the possibility of the existence of God. This is because science cannot prove or disprove his existence, it only provides arguments both for and against the idea. Just like how science does not prove or disprove the idea of a 4th dimension, but it provides compelling arguments for both sides. Neil Degrasse Tyson and a lot of other scientists said that humans probably will never understand what dimensions beyond 3d will look like (such as 6d, 10d, and 11d). The twelve dimensions exist beyond time and space. Perhaps a higher deity does reside in one of those dimensions.

"Death is terminal for 100% of the people." Yes. But there are plenty of examples of people who have died and came back to life, however, they died again within minutes, days, or weeks. 

Do you know what makes a topic controversial? It is when both sides have compelling arguments. So it is recommended that everybody should take the time to know the arguments for both sides before saying anything. If not, they will say things which sound ridiculous like "Any INTJ worth their salt does not believe in god."

All INTJ are not the same, and they certainly do not all have the same opinions (Michelle Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Felonius Gru, and Jay-Z are all INTJ even though they seem to be completely different people with different opinions on certain things). It is like a mindset or attitude. If you are an INTJ and you do not believe in God for a, b, and c. Okay. You have other INTJ who do believe in God for x, y, and z. Both of you believe your reasoning is logical. Which what an INTJ would do (most of the time), believe in what sounds logical.

In fact, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator is not accurate. If you wanted to find out more about who you are, use the test that Psychologists recommend and are scientifically valid: The Big 5. The Big 5 is one of, if not the most accurate personality trait indicator. If you are a big fan of logical reasoning then it should make to you that using a more accurate test is best.

Cheers

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. 

Girl In The Desert (not verified) says...

This is a really good point. Additionally worth considering is the fact that so many people fail to contemplate the logical inconsistencies and the blind religiosity in their own statements. If all you've got is your own made up INTJ religion, then you have no real understanding of cognitive functions and attempts by real professionals to define them. Hint: INTJs utilize all cognitive functions in varying degrees as compared with other types. If you lack the capacity to use all of yours or else choose to come across as an intellectual purist you are clearly choosing to remain psychologically inept for your own very maladaptive I might add purposes. Do you really think a real INTJ really cares about your pathetic attempts at logic when you've already declared you can't fully reason? Do you really think an INTJ really cares about your attempts to create an ill-conceived system of group think? And all in the name of true logic and reason and science. Really, good luck with your self-but you should know, glorifying intellectualism? Is a VERY far cry from Te. 

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).)

💉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)

🌬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 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

🎣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)

👑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.

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.
