You are an INTJ!

As an INTJ, you are Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging.
This makes your primary focus on Introverted Thinking with an Extraverted Intution.

This is defined as a NT personality, which is part of Carl Jung's Rational (Knowledge Seeking) type, and more specifically the Mastermind or Scientist.

You aren't as openly affectionate as some of you NT counterparts, and this may cause other bloggers to assume you aren't as friendly. Your ideas and actual applications for these ideas are brilliant, however, and you might be more likely to create something masterful on your journal.

i'm an INTJ to a tee. i do come across as not friendly, but it isn't intentional or snobbery - just me being me - heehee!
zalary on June 4, 2002 03:30 PM
I'm totally like that...I've taken the personality test before, and I came up as the Mastermind, which is really weird.
Liz on June 4, 2002 07:09 PM
Mastermind. Yeah, that's me (riiiight). This is a cool thang, however!
Solonor on June 4, 2002 09:34 PM
Wow, pretty neat. I'm definitely an introvert and can come off as not friendly. Cool test!
Geri on June 5, 2002 07:43 AM
I'm not sure if it's me to a tee, but I can definitely see how some of this would apply to me. I even retook the test to make sure the answers fit me. :-)
Kymberlie R. McGuire on June 5, 2002 08:31 AM
I'm an INTJ in real life, so this makes sense - very cool!
Donna on June 5, 2002 09:01 AM
I'm sort of shy and this causes people to think of me as unfriendly or stuck up...Once you get to know me though, i'm obnoxiously outgoing and funny. I'm also always trying to come up with new, cool ideas for my blog layout...that's why it's constantly changing!
jen on June 6, 2002 07:07 AM
I never thought of myself as a mastermind. Dang.
Marilyn on June 6, 2002 07:44 PM
I've tested more strongly INTJ every time I take these tests, so this didn't come as much of a surprise, but it was a nice confirmation of something I already knew.
Matthew on June 6, 2002 09:48 PM
ENK! Wrong. I took this test before -- first, the original test from a Psych book my friend had during a party... the next, online. Both mentioned I'm an ENFJ. And I agree. An Extroverted Intuitive Feeling Judgemental person I am. :-)
Lea on June 6, 2002 10:25 PM
Some people would say that the most interesting thing about my weblog is the code I wrote to make myself one... typical INTJ.
Rob Carlson on June 7, 2002 06:04 AM
I take this test once every five years, with consistent results. And yet I'm a writer, who considers herself more creative than rigorous.
Nathalie on June 7, 2002 11:48 AM
Great Test...now leave me alone so I can be alone! Joking. ;)
Bink on June 9, 2002 11:39 AM
this is the second time i've turned out to be an INTJ. but, really i am thoughtful and friendly! well...at least i try to be.
juli on June 11, 2002 12:38 PM
My significant other always said I appeared standoffish to other people. Hmph. I just think I'm a touch shy. Perhaps this is why.
Shannon on June 15, 2002 05:08 PM
Woy! ... this is me totally! I am very tenacious whe it comes to seeing projects through. I'm a systems enginer, dealing with solutions! :) Spot on!
Jon on June 24, 2002 03:29 AM
At least I know I'm not crazy and don't have to try so hard to fit in! I like being an INTJ....
ann on July 27, 2002 12:08 PM
Not only am I INTJ, I am an Aquarius. Nope, not openly affectionate, but I really *am* friendly. Really. : )
kayjay on July 27, 2002 04:54 PM
Same result as the Kiersey, with which I totally don't agree. I'm friendly, silly and creative! Really, I am! Hmph.
Carbeth on July 28, 2002 04:24 PM
I always used to test as an INTJ, but lately have tested lots of different ways, most often INTP. I'm not sure I believe this stuff...
Prentiss Riddle on August 2, 2002 02:39 PM
I'm a INTJ is everyone here a INTJ?? Heh; us INTJ's gotta stick together; maybe take over the world.
redwolf on August 7, 2002 12:47 AM
Im a very strong INTJ but I am also a very unconventional INTJ. Some aspects of the descriptions do not apply to me. I think it's because I have an older sister who is an ENFP and another who is INFJ. I think some of their Idealist characteristics have had a great influence on me.
Peter on August 7, 2002 07:13 PM
Wow. Nobody has ever called me a Mastermind before. Thanks!
That Girl Behind The Door on August 7, 2002 10:17 PM
I used to think I was weird till I discovered I was INTJ. Now I know it.
Savonarola on August 8, 2002 09:57 AM
Very close. I've taken a similar one and got the same results.
Alexis on August 10, 2002 11:29 AM
We rule the world! The rest of it just doesn't realize it yet.
darksyde on August 10, 2002 02:09 PM
Hardly surprising I'm an INTJ, since I've consistently tested that way on other tests administered years apart. Nice to know I'm still consistent :)
Jenny on August 14, 2002 11:15 AM
Absolutely INTJ! since the first time I took the test in fifth grade. It's hard for me to find people who can understand this personality of mine, and I'm always spread too thin among my interests, but, hey, "Mastermind"...you can't beat that label! hehe. :D
KasiaLou on August 17, 2002 08:49 AM
All I can say is that the being an INTJ and needing to find some systemic pattern existing within the personality and resulting behavior of people, the keirsey Temperament sorter kicks much anus and never leaves me feeling dissapointed.
henry on August 24, 2002 02:00 PM
Whoops! is this Keirsey or Myers-Briggs?
henry on August 24, 2002 02:03 PM
Am a classic fit of INTJ. And I like it! Woohoo. :)
Jasmin on August 25, 2002 02:59 AM
Completely. I run an INTJ email list, too.
JoAnne on August 26, 2002 10:04 PM
I tested INTJ five years ago and I test INTJ today... since INTJ describes me almost exactly the test must work. INTJ is less than 1% of the population; that makes us all unique freaks!
JDH on August 26, 2002 11:34 PM
Could never understand how I have this weird personality and be a female at the same time. Now I know, I can stop struggling to fit in all the time!! Way to go!!
leeia on August 28, 2002 06:45 AM
I'm an avid reader, a student of philosophy and a writer by nature. Every time I take one of these tests the result is INTJ. It fits my personality like a glove. Discovering the Myers-Briggs sorter and reading Kiersey's books has helped me understand myself better.
Roxanne on August 28, 2002 01:26 PM
I am...
Bill Andrews on August 31, 2002 11:25 AM
This is fantastically true!Fits me like a shoe. And once I feel comfortable around people I am exceedingly outgoing and funny. I made one girl pass out from laughing once. so... anyway...
Lincoln on September 2, 2002 10:09 PM
Every time I take one of these tests I'mINTJ
John on September 8, 2002 06:18 AM
Every time I take one of these tests I'mINTJ
John on September 8, 2002 06:18 AM
Knowing more about oneself is like gaining totally new knowledge, it's like understanding what you know and realizing what you are aware of. I'm a web developer, graphics designer, (and musician and writer in my own ways). I decided to revise my site entirely to keep my writings and personal ideas about anything. I just relaunched my site today: 9/11. I hope you check it out. When I found out I am an INTJ, well, what can I say? It's nice to have one community like this where members' minds connect!
Larrimar on September 11, 2002 09:00 AM
Interesting. it fit's almost perfectly.
MKM on September 12, 2002 04:10 AM
cool! I'm a Mastermind. Hey, I already knew that. LOL!
DivineJoy on September 12, 2002 12:43 PM
I feel comfortable talking to my imaginary friends. I'm schizophrenic and don't appear friendly. I have looks that could kill. I like reading freud and like an office away from everybody else. I'm a webmaster and I excel in the sciences. I'm not too friendly at first and pick up lots of information about a person just by studying their handwriting, the inflections they use when they talk, and though patterns.
Desiree on September 16, 2002 03:21 PM
i suppose this fits. hmm.
Abigail on September 30, 2002 03:16 PM
Wouldn't really call myself an introvert, 'coz I can be quite an exhibitionist sometimes!
The Queen of Arabia on October 4, 2002 05:51 PM
I'm am so much happier now that I can understand myself from an outside view. So many people think I am so wierd and mean!
T Burton on October 6, 2002 11:19 AM
BWAHAHHAAH, of course. I'd have to be a mastermind to takeover the world!!!!!!!! Now all I needzzz iz a secret underground lair, and a buncha henchmen!!!
Maximus3!!! on October 6, 2002 05:04 PM
WOW...I used to be an INFJ...but some really tough times has made its impression on me! This really does sound like the me I've become!!
calistasky on October 6, 2002 08:10 PM
I im a complete INTJ. Most people think i am unfriendly and hard to ttret, but the people that know me have come to understand me. I am the Mastermind behind all.
Pinacate on October 7, 2002 08:49 PM
I've had many people say I'm INTJ... but I guess if it's on the Internet, it *must* be true!
Travis Seitler on October 8, 2002 06:24 AM
From ENTP to INTJ. I have to admit, I really don't have any social inclinations.
Ederlyn Lacson on October 8, 2002 11:59 AM
Great test. Describes me to a tee!!!!!!
Hannibal on October 12, 2002 07:20 PM
I've always gotten INTJ over the years of re-taking the test. heh ;)
Nina on October 14, 2002 06:30 PM
I agree that I'm an INTJ but Mastermind? I prefer the title in the older editions of Keirsey's book "Scientist"
doctorrickb on October 15, 2002 11:29 AM
INTJ describes perfectly, eventhough im a little shyer than than the normal INTJ
Hannos on October 17, 2002 12:31 PM
Intuitive, Thinking, Judging - well that about sums me up! But introverted? That only applies to me 50% of the time. Very cool to see this test "alive" again.
LadyD. on October 18, 2002 02:29 PM
I'm torn between T and F - tested as INFJ for years, but I think I'm compensating for my very F husband. I blog F-ly in some ways - I take criticism too personally and badly to launch it at others, even if it's just their ideas I have a problem with.
Davey's mommy on October 19, 2002 09:48 PM
Reading the notes are almost like reading things posted by myself. (intj fits me well)
Ivy on October 21, 2002 01:35 PM
I've taken tests for this about 7 times and keep getting INTJ, plus my friends agree with me the results are freakily true. I love being an INTJ! Masterminds..hehehe...
Eternal Supernova on October 26, 2002 04:01 PM
Whoo-hoo!
Chris on November 2, 2002 02:34 PM
My junior high girlfriend and I both tested INTJ long, long ago. We're stll best friends, still in love, still both INTJ. Make a few good friends and keep them forever!
Prospero on November 8, 2002 11:31 PM
Being a female INTJ, it has always been very frustrating for me to see and accept how I fit into the social realm. I have been depressed and confused almost my entire life because I have always had a hard time with any kind of relationships. Men are usually intimidated and turned off by my seriousness and directness and women just don't like me period! The only women friends I have are an ENTJ and ISTJ. I know I'm an INTJ, but shoot, I NEED love too!!! :)
Jennifer on November 9, 2002 06:06 PM
hmm.. maybe is due to my horoscope (pisces) that i am a INTJ.. the character traits of a INTJ is the similar to a pisces
Gary on November 10, 2002 12:38 AM
yeah i don't really show my affection and i love to learn things
biks on November 11, 2002 06:39 PM
I don't understand how I got pigeonholed like this. I love everybody, I really do.
Kyle on November 14, 2002 12:12 AM
i think therefore i am .....fits alot of me though the test here is pretty general, 4 block questions..seems oversimplified
james on November 18, 2002 09:54 AM
I've taken these tests several times and always gotten either INTJ or INFJ. I think I'm pretty evenly split between the two.
Charlie on November 18, 2002 02:28 PM
I used to be more of an intp but now I'm more of an intj with still some intp characteristics. but it's definately cool to be 1% of the population!
me on November 18, 2002 03:29 PM
Definitely accurate as to who I am.
PJay on November 27, 2002 01:29 PM
I'm borderline I/E, but all-the-way NTJ.
j.s.f. on November 28, 2002 06:45 PM
I love working alone, I hate working in groups and having to satisfy mediocre agendas.
Tara on December 6, 2002 02:42 AM
I was originally tested to be an INTJ about 10 years ago. Nothing has changed. I showed my husband a list of the characteristics and he said that the author seemed to be writing exactly about me.
Chewie on December 9, 2002 04:41 AM
The "I" part is the only one I quibble with - I can be introverted or extroverted, depending on the situation. The rest (NTJ) is pretty good.
tenrec on December 9, 2002 12:17 PM
This profile fits me well, but I am always trying to decide between INTJ and INTP.
Julie on December 17, 2002 02:01 PM
Its an interesting fact that INTJ's have the longest colum of comments. Think about it and reflect. Come to your own conclusion on why.
sum guy on December 20, 2002 06:28 PM
My employer had these tests administered recently and I knew I was a 'Mastermind'. I was surprised that what at first glance appeared to be a very generalized version still turned up an accurate answer.
Truth on December 27, 2002 01:03 PM
I sound like Spock. But that's the truth. Introverted, intuitive, judging, thinking... sometimes I piss people off.
Lorena on December 29, 2002 10:50 AM
Yup, that's me. I'm pretty sure that's how I tested when I took the M-B full tests a while ago.
Lisa, Gal of Unix on December 30, 2002 08:06 PM
like someone else in this section mentioned, i too am said to have 'vulcan' mannerisms. nothing wrong with logic, i say....also, this oversimplified version of the M-B test seems to have worked quite well, as i have tested INTJ 4/4 times with the standard M-B test and bastardized versions thereof.
tuesday on December 31, 2002 02:16 PM
INTJ...hopefully this means I'll sooner or later get somewhere in life!!
giorgia on January 2, 2003 10:53 AM
'strue. everyone thinks i hate them when i first meet them, as i'm very cold and calculating. my friends generally think of me as "the guy that knows what he's talking about."
Loren on January 4, 2003 10:17 AM
Wow. This fits me perfectly. I studied Jung in one of my honours seminars, but I never really bothered to take any of the personality tests because they were, "a distraction" to the theoretical connection of evolution and pyschology. :-) I'm glad I did take it, though.
lashlar on January 7, 2003 02:42 PM
This is me to a tee. Methodical and calculating and wants it done..chop, chop!! And if you can't get it done you're an idiot, but I like you anyway. Yep, that's me.
Frank on January 14, 2003 09:44 PM
INTJ is me completely! At work I get bored easily....I need to be doing creative things and using my skills. If I am not, or if people challenge what I am doing, I get super competetive. I don't listen to authority for authority's sake. I need to respect the boss. I go above and beyond my job description, and I have my immediate supervisors feel threatened, even though I wasn't meaning to do that. I disrupt "The old way of doing things" and I come up with ideas that seem wacky to my peers. I end up sumitting these wacky ideas to the higher-ups in the company even though it probaly makes me seem "out there". I can't hold back, It's almost like I can't stop myself, because I think my ideas are so cool. Why can't everyone see what I see?
Nikki on January 18, 2003 04:14 AM
Well, I have no idea if this fits me or not, but I guess we'll find out, won't we now?!
Ren on January 21, 2003 02:13 PM
I'm an INTJ, and I can't argue with that!
Curious on January 25, 2003 06:54 PM
This fits more so than the last test I took. This time a professional administered it and I was pleased with the results.
MusingsJ on January 31, 2003 10:27 AM
Yes, I am brilliant! I am a mastermind! My mission is what it is every night, TO TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!
LOGOS on February 1, 2003 08:58 PM
Hmm, calm and collected except when in love... sounds like me.
Ed on February 2, 2003 09:23 PM
I am a INTJ. Reading my test results was like reading a biography of my personality. Its a very accurate test, and very fun to take.
Carrie on February 8, 2003 01:56 PM
It is totally accurate. It meshes with the test I was given by a Psychologist.
Musingsj on February 10, 2003 06:50 AM
Its great being an INTJ... except when it comes to relationships. I suck at relationships! Ever job I've ever had I've been able to do the work more efficiently than past employees. At one job I did all the work that it took three other workers to perform in the past. I am fairly introverted... I am willing to talk but prefer to keep to myself if its just going to be small-talk or rambling about un-important things. Ask me anything, if I know the answer I'll tell you. If not I'll tell you where to go to find the answer.
pyoor on February 16, 2003 09:04 PM
Close enough.
Don on February 17, 2003 09:27 AM
The definition of an INTJ fits me more than I'd like to admit :~)
KateyScarlett on February 22, 2003 10:15 AM
it's been a year since i took this test. i retook it and had gone from an isfj to an intj. i think the latter is certainly more fitting for me these days and at this point in my life. bravo!
ericalynn on March 3, 2003 01:23 PM
I just took the test again after 6 months, and i'm still a Mastermind. LOL!
DivineJoy on March 17, 2003 11:42 AM
I'm an INTJ. I took the real Myers/Briggs test about a year ago and i was an ISTJ. -shrugs-
Jen on March 28, 2003 03:03 PM
Well...I know I come off as both blunt and unfriendly at times. But I don't care, darn it all...
shelly on March 31, 2003 11:05 AM
Absolutely, 100% me, just like the Keirsey test. Check out my web site with weblog and more personality info!
Aaron W. Benson on April 8, 2003 02:53 PM
Actually, I cheated. I knew my type due to other tests. I thought this one was not varied enough, since few people fall into one catagory or another. But the information supplied about my personality far surpassed any other web location I could find-so I am now much more certain that INTJ is in fact me. And I'm damn proud of it!
Mark on April 9, 2003 08:20 AM
WoW! I wish I could say being 1% of the population makes me feel good but I wish there were more of us. Being a small portion of population makes it difficult to fit in. I have no friends because no one "gets" me. I wish there were a place for all of us INTJ's to talk online. All sorts of groups have conventions why can't we? I would be willing to be friendly and open to someone "special" like myself.
Jodie on April 10, 2003 01:39 PM
I'm an ENFP male. Supposedly, an INTJ is perfect for me. I'm 25 and live in Ohio. Come find me. eliasclay at yahoooooooooooo.
eliasclay on April 11, 2003 12:21 AM
OMG...this is me! I am definately introverted exteriorly and extroverted exteriorly......and i do have creative bursts of genius!! lol
Kelly on April 12, 2003 07:56 PM
I always test as an INTJ on these things, I mostly enjoy it, but it's sometimes difficult for me to feel really understood by others.
Marina on April 15, 2003 04:40 PM
I must say INTJ sounds very much like me (not just in blogging but real life)... I feel the uncontrollable urge to lern more! Come and visit me!
MAM on April 15, 2003 08:07 PM
INTJ? The answers/options were too black & white.. no grey area whatsoever.
Noc on April 16, 2003 05:19 AM
Like the sorting hat in Harry Potter, the test gives proper directions. Anyone follow their type and have successful results?
gregt2 on April 16, 2003 11:19 AM
Am an INTJ, it is clear to me. Am a writer. I speak spanish. Am always reading, and of course, people think am weird. Am very talentous... to get misunderstood by people. But my sense of humor saves me always..
andrés on April 18, 2003 10:13 PM
Yeah, give a boss an "INTJ" and they'll beg for a mile...
donna on April 25, 2003 07:49 AM
I am definitely an INTJ. It's exactly how I and others would describe my personality. It's kinda a weird personality isn't it... Oh well :) we're unique!
stephanie on May 2, 2003 03:24 PM
Me? INTJ? that's rather unbelievable. anyways, hello to fellow INTJ-ers!
janet on May 3, 2003 11:29 AM
I've taken similar tests about 8 or 10 times.INTJ every time!
steve on May 4, 2003 03:03 PM
hi guys mee too from ur gruop hahaha ! i am intj mail me ..
sachin on May 8, 2003 10:52 AM
sachin_y_1999@yahoo.com
sachin on May 8, 2003 10:55 AM
What can I say? I am certainly an INTJ.
Brian Shaver on May 11, 2003 03:21 PM
I am very definitely an INTJ it fits me exactly
Sarah on May 14, 2003 05:27 PM
I am definitely intuitive, logical, thorough and assertive. And sometimes this comes off as ruthless or intimidating to people who don't know me well. So yeah I'm an INTJ
Anit Agarwal on May 15, 2003 11:31 AM
It was somewhat accurate.
Joe on May 15, 2003 04:01 PM
It's nice to know I'm a Mastermind. Now I know why very few can understand me. We comprise only 1% of the total population.
Fatima Monteverde on May 22, 2003 11:26 PM
Very interesting. The more I read between the lines of the intj description, I feel more at ease. I like my personality, it is fun to be living in an introverted world(as well as frustrating.) I guess that is the price I pay for being a mastermind. (ha ha).
Maria on May 24, 2003 06:34 PM
Yup - definitely more of an INTJ than an INTP (though I have some qualities of the latter). Took test in college and at work. For both, I had an "INT." First time though, it was INTP and now INTJ.
Greg on May 26, 2003 07:01 AM
i never really felt like i fit in and thought i was a freak until i took the first keirsey test that informed me that i was an intj. i'm not a freak. i now realize why few understand me (we're only 1% of the pop). as i grow older the desire to right the wrongs and save the world has worn off and i'm desiring to hermit more and more. so with that, i'm off... trudge, trudge, trudge
granola_girl on May 26, 2003 10:58 PM
I have no doubt I am a INTJ. So miss-understood, so bold, and always so happy. I have always understood myself, didn't feel the need to make others know me! Typical INTJ!
Lisa on June 1, 2003 08:35 AM
I really fit in the description of INTJ! Now I know who I am, why I have difficulty to have friends, etc. Reading this gives me an idea of which career fits well with me ! In fact, I have been thinking about my future 3 years ago, and still I have any idea of what I really want to do. Learning that people with this people find satisfaction in sciences gives me confidence to go in that area!
Anna on June 1, 2003 08:44 PM
Yeah, still an INTJ..Just checking to make sure i'm still on point :-)
redwolf on June 2, 2003 11:29 PM
Still an INTJ--seems to get stronger as I get older
TW on June 3, 2003 12:21 PM
Yep, I was an INTJ the last time I took this test too. Funny how that works.
Kevin Drum on June 4, 2003 10:20 PM
I learned about these 16 types in a grad research class where the test was given to us to find out what kind of researcher we were. Discovering I was an INTJ shed light on the many parodoxes of my life. Though introvert (drained by too much people contact) I come off as an extravert and people come to expect the extraverted action oriented personality. My strongest ability: my intuition. I view the world as interconnected systems with the parts inseparable from the whole; People with power, fame or authority don't phase me one bit....I don't understand fanclubs and ... the most impressive description of a trait was understanding that my preferred position in life was being second (with lots of freedom) behind a strong, credible leader who managed centre stage while I could be in the sidelines doing what I do best: analysing and improving whatever.... enough for now.
ArtAide on June 10, 2003 12:50 AM
It's a relief to know there are other female INTJs out there struggling to fit in. I think I understand why I just can't seem to get along with other women and why men are always telling me to lighten up!
Linda on June 15, 2003 08:03 PM
This test is bogus. 4 questions to figure out your personality??? Rounding it down that far, you might as well spend 30min per question to make sure you don't screw the test results over. If you all want to know what your real personality is then take a test with more than a few ?'s.
Adam Wood on June 17, 2003 09:13 AM
INTJ or ENTJ baby! It's all true, except for the bad things.
Jeremy Greenwood on June 24, 2003 06:43 PM
oh yeah.... this fits me in so many ways...! i've been called aloof, and critical. i have sooo many things i want to learn about that i don't think i'll ever learn all of it... pretty much the whole description is very much me.
november on June 25, 2003 03:45 AM
this is very good, I'm INTJ and I feel good about it hehehe... :)
Ranyta on June 26, 2003 08:10 AM
The word "system" isn't a word.. its a world. I have yet to form an intimate relationship with the opposite sex (never kissed; SPD-like sometimes). I feel like I'm a doppelganger. The people that are my close friends think I am smarter than I really am, and those who don't know me think of me as ~distantly dull. Perfectionism vs. Excellence is always a hard thing. Making a career choice, etc. is so excruciating and inexact.
Vandrian on July 1, 2003 12:04 AM

Lusy on July 13, 2003 09:50 AM
after 20 years and 10 tests I am still and *NTJ and mostly happy about it. I used to test as a strong E but as I get older it's going to I.
Dave on July 16, 2003 02:09 PM
I take the Meyers-Briggs over ten years ago, as a Johns Hopkins fellow, and curiously my type has moved, shifted from ESTP to INTJ! I can follow the change in mode, activity, feedback/reflection, conclusion, action and say evolution is possible. I would enjoy talking to others whose profiles have shifted? What lead us to the changes? What have them meant in your life? Are there conflicts? More peace? I feel I have grown, and become more mature. Maybe this links to Erik Erikson's life stages, too. I am open to chat, enjoy input.
walterrhett on July 19, 2003 01:56 PM
I'm an INTJ and I want to know what non-INTJ idiot created a website where you have to scroll down the screen to read what other people have written in a narrow column.
Rob on July 21, 2003 09:18 AM
Right on! I think I've always tested INTJ and I suppose it is comforting to know that I'm not really alone in that 1% of the population :) I liked the short test format (took me 1/10 the time of the last two online tests I tried), although I think it would be a little hard to use for those who don't alreayd know more about the MBTI. P.S. Please make the note window larger, it is only about 1.5x3 cm on my display and it's pretty hard to keep track of what I wrote 1 line ago. Oh, anyone know if having a great 'poker face' is a common trait of INTJs?
Woody on July 26, 2003 09:18 AM
Possible. I don't see it this way. Perceptions can be confusing and outright wrong though, especially of yourself.
denizenGT on July 27, 2003 05:44 AM
i'm a true introvert, but some tests say i'm a INFJ. Who knows???

Jonathan Wise on August 1, 2003 12:34 PM
I've long known that my personality was not in the majority. After taking the MBTI a few years ago I knew why. INTJ explains it all and fits like a glove.
James Landrith on August 1, 2003 02:26 PM
I first took the Myers-Briggs test my senior year in high school and found out I was an INTP. I took it online a week or so ago and now I'm an INTJ. Both categorizations fit me to a T for the times mentioned. I'm a writer and a true perfectionist - to the things I feel are improvement-worthy. People always misunderstand me for "snubbing" them (as I was told by my EFTJ mother) when really, I'd rather just observe than part-take. Glad to know I'm not the only one!!! :-)
Leanne on August 19, 2003 02:05 PM
Interesting. The two other times I took the Myers-Briggs test (once professionally administered) I've always come out very clearly as an ENTP.
Michelle on August 20, 2003 02:56 AM
Yep. This is me.
alice on September 1, 2003 07:40 PM
even though the result i got on this (bloginality) test was completely inaccurate, the Jung test has had more luck placing me in this category. i still think these types of tests are crap because if people was so easy to categorize then society would be a lot different than it is now. havent you read Brave New World? its all there

This is me, and it's not. In Myers-Briggs I test out as INTJ, but I work to overcome the limitations of the personality type. I'm not nearly as sarcastic anymore.
Zesmerelda on September 16, 2003 08:34 AM
i'm an INTJ, you're an INTJ, she's an INTJ, skyte, my dog is an INTJ. whatever. one/two/million application[s] of any waterdown online test is bogus. but wait! as an INTJ, you knew that!
rew on September 18, 2003 12:30 AM
seems there ARE alot of INTJ's here... you're all to busy mental-masturbating to understand the word 'humility'. 30mins on google an anyone can get the INTJ-gold star.

HGH on December 17, 2003 01:22 AM
Hey INTJs. How do you all deal with intrapersonal relationships? For as many hours as I love my type, there are twice as many during which I wonder if life would be better had I been born a bit different. I'm sure God has a perfect plan for me just the way I am, however life can be quite hard with few or (in my case) absolutely no friends. I consider myself attractive (I'm a former gymnast and muscular), and cordial (yet by no means do I let either of those opinions be known) and yet I STILL have noone that ever calls me to ask me to do something, or just to talk.
M on December 17, 2003 07:32 PM
I am a loner who makes his living as a salesman. Go figure! My very intellligence isolates me to some extent, although I have been fortunate to surround myself with other intelligent beings. We are a depressingly rare breed. Be glad that you are different, and revel in your singularity.
jim on December 19, 2003 09:26 PM
A LONG, RATHER DISORGANIZED, AND HOPEFULLY INTERESTING ESSAY… AND SOME QUESTIONS TOO. Yes... Interesting how many INTJs are geniuses. When I took my IQ test as a child the “gifted and talented” lady re-scored it because she didn’t think it possible (I made some kind of elaborate picture out of a few shapes that apparently boosted my score). I’m only mentioning it on here because I’m among fellow pundits and hopefully you won’t think of me as a braggart for saying so. BTW, that lady threw a temper tantrum and threw a clay model that a friend had given to me thus smashing it to pieces. So I embarrassed the heck out of her by quitting her little club and not hiding why (an exclusive club isn’t so special if its members don’t care to remain in its membership), and she later tried to manipulate me by catching me alone and being all sweet. In your face sucka!!! I digress… I am proud of the intelligence I've been blessed with, and am happy that I'm able to discern and imagine things that many of my peers are incapable of discerning or imagining, however, that, in itself, puts an automatic wall up. At school, for example, though I don't advertise my grades, people started to notice after a while that I was the kid asking a lot of questions, I was the kid answering a lot of questions... and after asking around as they usually do, I was the kid getting 99s and 100s. All of a sudden I'm "the smart kid" and its like **BAM BAM BAM BAM** I can feel the metal cage shooting through the flooring and I've got my label; "the kid that is over my head". I have befriended two of the strangest characters... who really I barely relate to except for our seemingly similar dispositions. One is a very shy introvert who loves his art and shows people regardless of whether they care of not. He has a deep wild imagination like me, but seems incapable of relating to people on a normal level, and while he is on a similar creative level, I'm not sure he relates to me when I talk theory (he seems to listen and sometimes sums up what he's heard with "you're crazy man"). The other is a rich kid who seems to be a complete druggie, and I think he likes me because I treat him like a human rather than "the druggie". I'm kind of on a tangent, but while I know all humans have feelings, and I should most definitely not "shrug off" these relationships, I strongly desire some type of normalcy in my friendships. I have a few questions for you all: (1) Did it get better in college? I mean... it seems like at least then a lot of the deadbeats will be gone (as well as the unfortunate poor). It seems as though to relate to someone on an intellectual level, they will automatically be weird haha... Seems like the smarter you get, the weirder you are. There is also the total environment change… I’ve heard people act different in college, and that becoming close friends with people isn’t nearly so difficult because of the close-contact relationships forced upon college-goers. I just hope I will make friends that will partially pull me out of my shell, for otherwise I will probably “hermitize” myself into my private room (this campus has a nice dorm layout) and entertain myself with the knowledge gained from the internet, and the lacking, yet existant interaction it provides (2) Tell me your experience with dating/courtship/whatever. While I could easily get a date with a number of girls I know, I have absolutely no desire to date any girl except for the choice few that I've liked over my lifespan (I've only been attracted to 3-5 girls over my life, most of those probably being foolish crushes because they showed a shred of kindness to me) I currently like a girl I've known for about 6 months. She is a total sweetheart; always positive and uplifting (I believe she's an INFP), and is also a Christian like I am. She's beautiful, ingenious, and hardworking (she's been on her schools top honor roll "the principle's list" every year) While it might seem like I'm gushing, I'm really only stating what I believe to be true. She is a former high-level gymnast like me. We do a weekly 1on1 Bible Study together, and both greatly enjoy our time together. Here’s the weird thing… Throughout the week she never calls, she rarely EVER gets online, and when I write her the occasional email (like once every few months) she never responds, yet usually mentions it to me when we meet face-to-face, and says she’s sorry for not responding. She’s very busy with her academics, so the lack of contact is understandable during the school year, however that is maintained throughout the holidays (which can also be discounted due to the fact that she might be with family or doing activities, or working her job at the gymnastics gym). I think the whole lack of contact via the internet can be easily countered with the idea that she probably doesn’t like impersonal contact. The whole Bible study thing can be for me or against for, after all, I am the ONLY person she is spending time with over that 1-2 ˝ hours and she loves it, and at the same time she could simply think of me as a cordial friend and peer, who has the most authoritative voice on theology, and who is kind enough to spend more than an hour every week conveying it to her in easy-to-understand speech (of course its more than that for me… I do have a desire to study the Bible, so why not do it with the very girl I adore?) Anyway, I think you can see my dilemma. For every “good sign” there is another contrary possibility that seems just as likely to be true. I’ve analyzed it much deeper, but I think I relayed my thoughts as well as I can without writing a novel and for the sake of length I’ll stop here. Ladies! Let me know what you think about all of this hullabaloo. Meh, its late and I’m tired. Sorry if I filled too much of the page. ***Announcer Voice*** "And so...

Hmm... I have taken various personality tests and all have myself pegged as an NT. Although being argumentative, introspective and bullheaded could be anyone . I would like to point out a FAQ in regards to this personality type and the people who think they're associated with Spock's vulcan mannerisms and how misleading it may very well be.

Fascinating. This is the fifth time I've tested INTJ. The personality description is always like reading a description of myself. I never thought of myself as terribly arrogant though. (However, I do know a select few people who would disagree here.) :-) I've always been a scientist, but a mastermind? I'm not sure about it, but I'll take it as a compliment.

deej on February 27, 2004 05:58 PM
Five years ago when I took the same test as a college student in therapy. While in my private life I still hang on the cross that bears the placard "INTJ", I have developed alternate Briggs-Meyers test personae for interacting with people at work, at parties, and through hobbies. Does that make me a multiple peronality? No. I say the Briggs test is worse than the Rorshach blot, lacking the latter's flexible and creative interpretability. Briggs test simply classifies me into any of numerous pigeon-holes, depending on the social situation. I'm so much more than an INTJ that I bawled out the therapist who wasted our time and my money on the "official" more detailed, costly and time-consuming version of the Briggs test. Was it Kierkegaard or Dick Van Patten who said, "If you label me, you negate me"? That test made me feel as though I had passed a "duh" exam of my self-knowledge, making my unique personality into a horoscope for diagnostic purposes. The happy ending? My therapist extended my treatment schedule for free, and used my case in his doctoral thesis. That's all the good this test ever did me.
James Dohring on February 27, 2004 08:07 PM
INTJ fits me in every way, I've read some the "potraits" of the INTJ type and, I find that it is totaly like me. Of coarse there are things that I haven't read yet, but I've only just started studying my Meyers briggs personality results. Since I'm this type I tend to make little sence of things to other people but I try sometimes if people wanna take the time to listen and try to understand. But i know what's going on and i don't care what people may think.
Bonnie on February 27, 2004 08:54 PM
I first heard about the Myers-Briggs personality tests three years ago, and I think of it as a nice general classification system. Every time I take it, I come out as an INTJ. However, I don't necessarily feel bound by the 'laws' of my INTJ class. The most obvious difference in my life is that I have a very extroverted job. I am in outside sales and daily interact with dozens of people. I enjoy it a lot. But I still maintain many traditional INTJ traits. I don't care much about the opinion of others, and generally feel pretty good about myself regardless of whether or not my last sales trip was 'successful'. I am sincerely grateful that the percentage of INTJs is low. Think of it guys...not many of our cherished 'systems' would function if the people working in them did the same amount of questioning and critiqueing that we do.

The description is so accurate, that I feel exposed. On the other hand, it was a relief to know that I am not crazy and not the only one in the world. I dont really have friends and being a female INTJ makes things worse with interpersonal relationships. Being religious(orthodox christian) and a scientist is too much for the world to handle. And, yes, I am arrogant.

to zero vector, you are wrong, because I am the most arogant selfish brilliant bastard in the world, and you are the jackass!
Kingshitz on March 17, 2004 02:48 PM
Reading all the things on the INTJ, it's inescapable: it's me. Sometimes unintentionally unfriendly, sometimes intentionally so, and almost completely clueless as to the difference. We're supposed to be difficult in relationships, and I'm working on 2 simultaneously. I say we should all band together and make 1, massive political and military assault on the world to finally impose order. It would be for the best, and you know it.
Virus-X on March 18, 2004 09:45 AM
INTJ type seems to describe me perfectly, I read this page mainly because it's nice to see other people in the world don't get other people either:p Relationships I have had before are always distant, and I find dealing with people highly difficult. I can be nice and get along with everyone fine, but it's just not how I like spending my time, and I never seem to find anyone that is my "type". So, after that rant, my question is how do other female INTJs feel men view them? It seems to me guys want to get in my pants but other than that they seem afraid to come anywhere near me like i'm going to zap them or something.
becky on March 23, 2004 01:52 PM
To Becky: Men are somehow afraid of us. They know we are not going to admire them or need their help. Can that make them feel useless? I dont know. My adress is alexos_gr987@hotmail.com Whoever wants to have a little conversation (and not small talk...) is welcome
maria on March 24, 2004 04:41 AM
I have a definite Extrovert/Feeler quality and have no trouble expressing my emotions at all, being the HUGE romantic I am, yet I never use emotion as my final arbitor in decision-making... very "rugged individualist" type
Antony on March 25, 2004 04:46 PM
To Maria: Not all of us are afraid. My INTJ girlfriend and I have an AMAZING relationship (going on two years now), and it was her "mastermind" mentality, drive, determination, sharp wit and creativity that made me HAVE to pursue her (and the fact that she is stunningly beautiful is a major plus... not the same attraction without the brains though).
Antony on March 25, 2004 04:56 PM
The INTJ description describes me almost perfectly. If I really want something a certain way, I'll bust my butt to make it exactly the way I want it and theres nothing you can do to stop me. Oh, and if you want the world's largest collection of pointless facts and thoughts, then find a way to tap into my brainwaves and dig in!

Most definitely an INTJ. Too intelligent and driven for most people to handle. M, I feel your pain. College does get better because of the amt of opportunities available. Although relationships never get easier, from my experience. To Becky and Maria: yes guys are definitely afraid of us. I think they are not used to encountering girls such as us, and as a result they don't know how to respond. But all I can say is that they are missing out!

Kieriahn on April 15, 2004 05:16 PM
To Kingshitz: I love you, you arrogant bastard! Only you would have the nerve to say such a thing. Perhaps someday our paths will intersect. Well met.
Zero Vector on April 15, 2004 07:13 PM
I thought I was just shy and a little odd until I read the description and It had me down to a tee. That was in 8th grade and I've gotten the same results ever since. Proud to be a mastermind...So when do we start conquering the world?
Robert on April 16, 2004 07:37 AM
I've known that I'm an INTJ for a few years now, but it does not stop me from learning more about myself or others and their types. I find it interesting to see how other people think and act after I figure out their type by observation.
Chuck on April 16, 2004 08:53 AM
I don't think this test is accurate at all. Maybe if you take the test somewhere else and come back here, it's better. I am an INTJ and I've tested this way more than twice. This test said i was an ISTP.
ruby on April 18, 2004 11:16 PM
I'm an INTJ, it says here. Eh. It kinda fits. Not too much. This test needs more questions to back up answers.
Lybi on April 25, 2004 11:24 AM
Like Robert, I've known I was an INTJ since I was about 13 years old. But being shy and confident kind of freaks people out so I did sales in college to learn how to express the confidence I felt inside. Next thing I knew I was testing as an ENTJ, but always borderline "I". It's a relief to know I can just be what I am without all the pressure to be friendly. My husband is a wonderful ESTJ. Now if I could just figure out what it is I am supposed to be masterminding....
Melody on April 27, 2004 07:03 PM
After testing as an ENTJ when entering college, but borderline Introvert, I evolved into an INTJ while in college (must have been all those hours along with the books). Anyway, the INTJ profile fits me very well, but I am also very money-oriented (strictly for the freedom and security it provides). Is anyone else here driven to accumulate wealth? What high-paying careers are best suited for INTJ’s?
Matthew on May 2, 2004 10:48 PM
thanks
dvd on May 10, 2004 01:02 AM
INTJ! Gee and I thought I was supposed to be friendly, yay! Guess that's my true nature somehow and it's not my intentions though. Hope I can be more friendly!
jeremy on May 12, 2004 08:10 AM
This short test gave the same results as another elaborate one I took months back !!! Creepy !!!
Ria on May 12, 2004 03:37 PM
I love solitude, fantasy, myth, speculation, theory, ideas, ideologies, beauty, and order.

Jen on May 19, 2004 07:12 AM
Typical INTJ. Work with rejuvenation theory. I think that INTJs should support each other, Than form 1% in general population we will move not to 20% in management as at present but to 90%. Make things happen.

Sometimes I think it sucks. No one understands what its like. Sometimes its like being totally alone. But other times, I am deeply grateful.
White Fang on May 19, 2004 03:52 PM
"Its an interesting fact that INTJ's have the longest colum of comments. Think about it and reflect. Come to your own conclusion on why." Someone wrote that on this page. I have only read half the comments, but I wonder if anyone else found that, that was by far the funniest comment on this page. I suppose I don't have to explain the humor to bunch of other intjs. Muahahaha
sgglaze on May 21, 2004 03:03 PM
I am an INTJ. I was shocked when I read the description because it describes me very precisely. They said that INTJ should have a mate who is a ENFP. My significant other is also an INTJ (even more extreme than me). I hope it works out for us.
Belle on May 23, 2004 05:53 PM
Pretty Much Totally it- Anal Retentive to a Tee, Forever searching for knowlege and understanding, as knowlege is the only real power to effect change and growth.
Aleks on May 26, 2004 12:06 PM
it says hir im an intj, but another test in another dyt tells im a ENfp, a social philosopher, kinda confused, really..........:-)
john on May 27, 2004 12:57 PM
I am a strategic thinker, like to conceptualize, and only a few really get to know me.
jc on June 1, 2004 08:58 PM
It says I am an INTJ. And its true.
R.Balaji on June 9, 2004 04:14 AM
M, I have gone somewhat through the same thing you have. I guess what your wanting is situational. I have made some very nice friends who are highly intelligent but perfectly healthy - mentally and socially. As far as the girl goes, I think she only views you currently as a friend. If you are confident, ask her out and see what she says. Don't fear rejection, otherwise your chances for a date with a girl you want goes down. You have to want to take chances. Don't get hung up on a girl who is not going to feel the same as you do about her. The ones who are interested in you, and you in them, are the ones that you should spend your time on. Also, I would say that viewing oneself as intelligent has the potential to make them arrogant. Make sure you don't fall into that trap. NOt only is arrogance unattractive, but it also limits oneself. When one begins to do that, they are less inquisitive and learn to believe in themselves above all else, instead of consistently learning.
caterina on June 12, 2004 09:36 PM
I'll be honest sometimes I just hate being an INTJ...Is that wrong?
Kasey on June 14, 2004 10:35 AM
I am an INTJ who often experiences a phenomenon called sleep paralysis....Does anyone else here have this disorder...just curious to know if it is consistent w/this personality type
Hello on June 14, 2004 09:20 PM
So.... mastermind eh? Could be true. I never care to become a leader and prefer to work behind the scene, and I absolutely am not a team player. I hate team sports - much prefer solitary sports where I can develop and improve my own skills as opposed to having to constantly deal with other people. If I had to play team sports, I would be more happy if I performed well and the team lost, than if I performed badly and the team won. 1% of the population! No wonder... I always thought nobody else in the world that thinks like me. I guess it's good thing there are a few of us... this world is only big enough for 60 million INTJ's... BTW. does anyone here think that there is 'something' about those free-wheeling party freaks ESFP's? Each time I run into one I have this urge to hang out with them even if (correction: ESPECIALLY if) they act like total clowns.
carl_godiva2000 on June 17, 2004 12:35 PM
I'm always an INTJ, over many years and many tests. I think there's a lot of us in the blogosphere.
Mel on June 19, 2004 12:52 PM
Knowing I'm an INTJ hasn't helped me at all.
jyplex on June 20, 2004 06:11 PM
I know that at least I'm definitely an NTJ. I rely entirely on Intuition and Thinking, and like a Judger, I'm a control freak and love organization. But I'm usually 50/50 on Introversion and Extraversion. When I'm out and about, I have no problem speaking up and making friends like an Extravert. But a lot of times I feel more like an Introvert and just want to be alone. So, a lot of tests I take say I'm an ENTJ and a lot say I'm an INTJ too.
David on June 26, 2004 04:16 PM
No doubt INTJ here.. Every test i have ever taken comes out the same, does describe lots of my quirks. People do think I am stuck up or snobby at first, but warm up t me over time, or maybe its I warm up to them... Only people who have been around me a long time really understand me. because I am still quite young (22), I am not that great of a communicator. Sometimes my feelings towards a situation are so complex, its not even worth me trying to explain them because it would take so long, my points would be lost in the process. That leaves me in a state most of the time that most people think I am a little wierd, I think.
slaiche on June 30, 2004 07:45 PM
It's who I choose to be, not as a product of my environment, but rather a product of spiritual tendency, and inspiration. Pretty cool test though
Jacob on July 3, 2004 04:06 PM
Yup, definitely INTJ. I was in a tour group with a psychologist and she had me pegged pretty quickly. I'm currently reading " Why Should Extroverts Make All the Money?: Networking Made Easy for the Introvert" and they're dead-on about INTJs expecting everyone to read their minds. lol
Alex on July 5, 2004 03:43 PM
i have taken this test a 100 times and i always score either intj (80%) or intp(20%). i like both types and i am happy with myself. i am not sure whether others are happy or not but i find the sf centered life boring and meaningless.
lilit on July 6, 2004 11:09 PM
another test.. another INTJ result..lol
Jun on July 13, 2004 12:23 AM
Me a T h i n k i n g M a c h i n e and as tested by few I am an iNTj.
Thinking Machine on July 13, 2004 02:05 AM
i fully agree. Im INTJ too.
scott on July 13, 2004 05:55 PM
i am an extreme INTJ myself, 90% in all three I,N &T, about 55% on the J side. Almost all my friends who took the test came out to be INFPs, ENFP , INTJs or ENTJs. In theory, INTJs are supposedly more drawn to other NTs and NFs, as those two categories tend to have abstract thinking in common (the N side kicking in hehe). I find myself particularly attracted by the INFP personality type and also the ENFP. I was wondering how many of u ppl agree share this attraction? Also i wonder how INFPs or ENFPs really perceive us. Why do i have the feeling they are as much put off by us as they are fascinated? :(
haris on July 27, 2004 07:58 AM
Do any other INTJ females here tend to look at women into traditional gender roles as somewhat weak? I tend to get defensive whenever I hear "women in the home" and men being the provider and protector. My usual response is I don't need a man I need some pepper spray and a job.
Becky on July 28, 2004 12:23 PM
short test...
Nick on August 1, 2004 07:41 PM
'Hello' - you mentioned 'sleep paralysis' where you questioned whether it might be common among other INTJs - myself borderline as an INTJ/INTP. To answer your question (after researching it a bit) I defifnitely have sleep paralysis. Crazy. I didn't even know what to call it until now. I think it might come from having a strong sense of intuition and judgment. Not sure, but very interesting. Observation I made about the INTJ posts which may or may not be worth thinking about (kind of like the thought: "look how many comments the INTJs have!" hehe) But.. notice how, for the most part, the grammar and spelling of the posts aren't that bad. Just thought of this when I read a post by John where he said on this site he was analyzed to be an INTJ, but on another test as an ENFP (noting his spelling was pretty terrible), and I thought.. "Eh.. yeah you're probably an ENFP." Yes, terrible to say, and I don't mean to offend.. but just a thought.
Lin on August 4, 2004 04:30 AM
yup.
linus moke on August 5, 2004 11:00 AM
Every test I take calls me iNTj and I do agree with most of the details about this personality type. I can be the life of a party when I want to but I usually love to sit in a corner and let the show go on.
April on August 13, 2004 07:50 AM
Female INTJ's are HOT!!! dunno why, but i like them a lot. :)
INFJ guy on August 13, 2004 06:16 PM
Wow...people always say I'm a big planner and now I know its soooo true. This would explain why my career choice fits me...I'm studying nursing.
Eliza on August 14, 2004 08:26 AM
Yeah I'm an INTJ for sure ... I did a lot of these MBTI-tests with the same INTJ-result and I really fit in the INTJ-profile. I often feel overwhelmed by thoughts and information. I also constantly analyze everything, putting it all in the giant framework in my head. However I prefer to make use of what I know instead of just understanding it. In my case this "making use" refers to programming, writing, drawing and a spiritual quest. I quote: "The INTJ is the only NT who has an enormous willpower" and that's more then true ... if I set my mind to something, I become a machine only living for that one (or more) thing(s), I love that crazy energy ^^. I live more inside my own head then in the "real" world and I'm often happier there because I sometimes feel like no one understands me or my ideas. I'm only 18 years old and I'm really glad I already know what my personality is, it really helps me to understand myself and why others react so differently, it made me happier. :)
Sébastien Jacobs on August 17, 2004 02:42 PM
I am quite definitely an INTJ. people think i am arrogant and rude but thats just cause they have lost my respect. i have respect for people until they make me lose it. I used to think that i was weird, now i know i am weird and am proud of it. INTJ peoples rock!!!
ansell on August 21, 2004 06:17 PM

Nelson Ferreira Alves on August 25, 2004 03:17 PM
I've been lost for a long time. I rarely understand others and I know that they view me as the outsider. I've taken this test many times with the same conculsion and now I'm really trying to find myself. I've turned to drugs and other self destructive behaviors to cover up years of what I would consider failures in my career choices and love attempts. I feel that my mind is perfect, but that I live in a broken world. I've got to get it right in order to make this experience (life) a worthy one. I just wanted to express another side to this "type."
John on August 27, 2004 12:06 PM
I've always wondered if Bill Gates "NT networking systems" are named specifically after this Jung organising concept.
GEEKS.US on August 27, 2004 06:09 PM
I've never really appreciated psychology as a science, but WOW does this ever describe me.
Ken on September 2, 2004 03:48 PM
Some people´s replies are idiotic. you are what you are. INTJ or not. Judging by some of the replies here, I find it hard to believe that some of them are INTJ´s.
Sebastian W. on September 12, 2004 05:14 AM
Either I'm a scientist because I'm an INTJ, or being a scientist has made me into one. The results from this test are consistent with every other one I've done, proving that selling my soul to product marketing would be folly.
Sparrow on September 12, 2004 02:19 PM
INTJ fits me in every way. I find it funny though that I didn't think people would see me as aloof and unfriendly at first. People probably do though and I've just been in my own world and just plain do NOT stop to care about what other people think of me. Relationships suck!
FREAKMASTER on September 13, 2004 08:20 PM
Yup, I am an INTJ alright!! I am very happy with my personlaity EXCEPT in the love relationship aspect. Feelers are drawn to me, yet I am soooooo terrible at being empathetic and sensitive. I just found out that there are only 1% of INTJ. PLEASE HELP!!! How do I know what personality type will fit my personality??? I AM SO CONFUSED IN THIS FIELD.
Alexis on September 23, 2004 10:22 PM
Heh, I remember being younger and always having trouble in school, not in the form of grades or concept understanding, but more-so in the form of being misunderstood (not a *sob story but just saying it how it is--if you INTJs know what I mean ; p). I recall at an early age being accepted as gifted and given the chance to advance through school, taking math, sciences, and English etc years before others. I was literally always in a class on my own, with guidance from the special school tutor of course : ), but that wasn't the disabling point. The true disadvantage was being so logical as a child and curios to understand the depth of what made every interaction and piece of information tick that I would often avoid other children as not understanding why they would want to play 'stupid' games such as monkey bar battles, or tag football, or the girls with dolls and boys. In addition, when my world shifted to the academic landscape my curiosity had me asking 'whys' and 'hows' so often as they annoyed my teachers. Every new teacher I had would say "It's ok to ask questions, ask all you want" yet soon enough I could sense with every question I asked, or topic I corrected : ), their patience slowly fading unto the brink of insanity. Eventually I would end up in the same spot everytime, the principles office. For always the same reasons: I wasn't getting along with other children or my teachers thought I was being smart-aleck, etc., etc. To be completely honest, I was even sent to psychologists for my behavior while some thought I was bipolar, or ADD since I was rather unemotional most of the time until they would push for my emotions and them when I did outcry, they would outcry in response "Look! Bipolar!"...Lol...This may be just me, but I honestly believe that there really are less that 5% (1% from some sources) of people like us in the world and because of the tribulations that we all endure during our earlier childhoods, I believe that each school or district should have some sort of support for people like us. Although not necessarily a disability, it can be and quite a dangerous one at that during earlier years. I can push past my pride as being intellectual and independent and accept the possibility that since we are a minority, and most minorities have special support, that we should have such at earlier ages. This type of cause and effect happened until high school where I finally decided to perfect my art of the hermit and was considered by most to be a 'gothic'......Lol...Yet far from the truth. Being an INTJ I did take interest in things less apparent to others, didn’t bother to go with fashions, and show(ed) little emotion. So all-in-all quite understanding from where others were perceiving such an idea : ). Still though, the labels did become worse as the adults labeled me as such and although I did perform in school my attitude once again had me labeled as a 'disruptive' student for sitting quietly in class...?..Lol...Now, though, that quite time produced many more authoritative instances, it also yielded me a tremendous amount of time to think things through in life. Now still at an early age I started college as a junior, and can finally take advantage of all of the persecution my INTJness preluded others to falsely see. Ha! Although I may be an INTJ I have been able to progress through most stages in life with a seemingly keen ability to understand the importance of all activities around me. Not to say that I, or anyone to that effect, can ever know everything about a subject, or that I never experienced and practiced the art of the hermit (I still do sometimes) but more precisely that the average mill person who may briefly skim the ideas in life will leave or give up without truly finding that deeper understanding or meaning. I am referring to the ideas such as group interactions, impact of all forms of knowledge, and the one we all 'love’ the most--emotions. Yet, although I may recognize the importance and interaction that each one holds, I do not necessarily outwardly express as such. Being an INTJ I may consider myself to have a deeper understanding than most, but am unable to put the complex ideas into words or actions appropriately or in a timely manner for human interaction. As stated before the prior post "Sometimes my feelings towards a situation are so complex, it’s not even worth me trying to explain them because it would take so long, my points would be lost in the process." I will be honest, though, in saying that with every situation I more entirely understand, the more I feel driven from the INTJ type. Because I am now able to share feelings more openly, interact with greater ease, and provide emotional support more appropriately--I sometimes feel as thought my INTJness is slipping away. But there lies the beautiful exception, that it doesn't matter or affect my INTJness to be more understanding because the INTJness that makes everyone of us up is in the ability of how we 'think,' not as much in as how we 'act.' To be an INTJ that can truly step outside of the known boundaries that can limit our full growth, our ability to apply our mental prowess, and the simple truths of the universe must be taken out and above all our known limitations to express its essence in ways which no non-INTJ being ever can...IMO...Lol : ) I am an INTJ, and I am proud.
Logan on October 13, 2004 01:33 AM
Once an INTJ, always an INTJ. I think we're the best kind. Seriously.
Sara on October 15, 2004 11:19 AM
Interesting...made me look at myself from a different point of view. I saw some things that I hadn't recognized before now. Fun test. But then I love tests like this.
Ammie on October 19, 2004 02:58 PM
I totally get you slaiche...I'm an INTJ and just got to know about it. In many ways it help shed some 'positive' light on how I viewed myself. Hey, I'm INTJ and loving it...hehe
eka on October 21, 2004 06:44 AM
I'm definitely an INTJ. Learning my personality type has changed my whole perspective. I always thought I was some kind of anomaly. It's nice to know there are others out there like me. I suppose it's a good thiing we are rare or we would probably take over the world. (just kidding)
libbie on October 24, 2004 12:15 AM
What I don't understand about many of these responses is the way people (mostly women) seem to think that they can't be fun, creative, or a pleasant person if they're an INTJ. That's nonsense -- all it probably means is that you're not a flighty nutjob. Denying who you are only causes trouble in the long run.
Tim on October 24, 2004 07:47 PM
I am not a lovie dovie kind of person. Thought it was just me. How wonderful to find out that you are not alone and there are people out there like you. People think I am a (E) because I talk but I make myself sometimes while privately having a panic attack. (I try to overcome who I am.)Is there a intj chat room?
Joyce on October 26, 2004 08:49 AM
it's all fitting together perfectly....mooohoo hooo haaahaaahaaah (maniacal laughter)
redwinerum on November 4, 2004 11:06 AM
To 'Hello', I looked up sleep paralysis on Google and it says that it may also be partially caused by disrupted sleeping schedules, I have those too, but no paralysis. I wonder if any other INTJ/P's ever felt like they had ADHD as a child...
Zeroangel on November 9, 2004 10:02 PM
to Carl_Godiva: Yes! I have problems making friends with girls but I did make friends with an ESFP. She doesn't seem to worry about anything, I agree their freewheeling style is attractive as far as wanting to hang around them. I'm always shocked to see how little she seems to care about anything but fun but everything always seems to work out for her!
Becky on November 18, 2004 05:51 PM
intj - it fits. if computer surveys can be this accurate, does that mean termiators of the future have our number? i guess we can have fun masterminding the resistance.
scott on November 28, 2004 12:09 AM
It fits to a T wow!
Stormiee on December 13, 2004 07:00 PM
Yep that's me alright. Never really liked to small talk or care much to flirt. Never understood why people bothered to do either. Still don't. But I've learned to small talk decently to people after i was accused of being arrogant and snobby. That really sucks cuz I'm really not. I'm still not much of a flirter though. I really don't like conforming to society all that much but i do what i have to to get by. The last thing i want is to be put in a mental institution.
KC on January 2, 2005 12:20 AM
i have taken this a few times, seizing the description of an intj didnt really come as a shock to me- the description fits, it just bugs me that supposably the rarest of all types has the hugest posting section of all, if you ask me, half you guys are fags looking for extra attention and embarrassing the hell out of me by claiming to be of the same personality type; anywho good test, i guess, (btw, for introverts you guys talk alot)
kev on January 6, 2005 06:42 AM
It describes me quite a lot. "Mastermind", that's too flattering but I take it.
Tomio on January 6, 2005 03:19 PM
I used to think that I was alone. Wow, that's great to find out others.
ricercar on January 8, 2005 05:40 PM
"INTJ" I somehow expected this rating. I often get noticed for being quiet and watchful as opposed to loud and oblivious.
Tony on January 21, 2005 03:15 PM
The test came out good, this is who I am.
Iuhos Tunde Noemi on January 22, 2005 01:42 PM
I'm an INTJ and a woman and have found it difficult most of my life to have good friendships with other women. I definitley don't know or care about small talk and that doesn't seem to work for me in a social gathering. I don't like having the stigma of hangning out with men because other women feel threatened by that and it just compounds the problem. Even the women in my family don't care for me too much. I have had to learn how to support myself emotionally, because my ENTP husband isn't much on noticing or caring about my emotional needs. Any advice would be appreciated.
k on January 24, 2005 09:46 AM

Steve Jerman on January 26, 2005 10:10 AM
As a writer my family and fans have a tendency to think of me as an eccentric genius, which is a little scary...
DawnGale on January 27, 2005 12:48 PM
Total explains me to a T. Most people don't get me and they don't understand how I can be brutally truthful or how I can go months without talking to people, but its just how I am. Everything is systematic for me, I have a system for everything and I am constantly working to make those systems more efficient, that drives my friends nuts! But Whatever! I'm fine with being me.
Laura on January 28, 2005 06:07 PM
like a glove. after hearing others i think i need to hook up w/ another intj
jdkvision on February 6, 2005 11:18 AM
Mastermind? not sure about that description, but I *am* introvert, I often come across as cold, ... :-) But I think I'm pretty friendly in my writing. :D

I have done 30 or more of these tests over the last 11 years and ALWAYS get INTJ
Jon on February 19, 2005 04:20 AM
Cosistantly test INTJ. Wouldn't have it any other way. The best world to live in is the one in my head.
Sheppard on February 19, 2005 08:20 AM
Tested INTJ in this one again, overall I get 75% INTJ, 25% INFJ. Anybody else here who is similar? Would love to hear from you.n :)
TheSphinx on February 27, 2005 08:35 PM
Now, I'm an INTJ? Hmmm must be all the absorbtion dealing with humans.
AainaalyaA on March 2, 2005 12:54 PM
Everyone's an INTJ! My profile turned out to be an INTP. I read through it all and it matched me, so I guess this test worked. Strange.
Reagan on March 11, 2005 11:13 AM
Being a true INTJ, I didn't bother with the quiz. Concur with Rob, Jul 21, 2003. Manifestations would be an online mapserver at http://asbdc.ualr.edu/maps/. I know little of GIS but I strung together a Yahoo styles map server using GIS files. Another manifestation would be the online news and training events on the same site. They come from a behind the scenes MIS system. Happily married and living with a teen INTJ daughter.
Timothy on March 12, 2005 12:21 PM
I don't date and I have no friends outside of work. INTJ anyone.
dg on March 19, 2005 05:24 PM
I enjoy playing chess a great deal,and as an INTJ I see the world as a giant chessboard looking for patterns in everything. How true that is.
Ben on March 20, 2005 03:17 PM
I guess if every single test I take says I'm an INTJ, I guess I really am. Cheers!
Chandra on March 24, 2005 03:28 PM
I usually type out at INTJ, but sometimes INTP. Guess it's the "time of the month"... hah! I relate to almost every comment everyone says here. I too felt I didn't "fit in", and it's difficult finding your "soul mate" when you make up such a small percentage of the population. But, I am INTJ, and hear me ROAR (in a logical, analytical, precise way, that is....).
Laurie on March 27, 2005 05:15 PM
I've taken several tests and they all come out the same. I aks too many questions, I always look like I have no emotions. I never have an expression on my face. I'm considered a book worm by most. I'm definetly a "Master Mind". I love tactics and battles and the like. Definitely an INTJ.
Gaijin on March 29, 2005 01:52 PM
Such a relief to read that so many of you also have a hard time with other people. Being 1% of the population explains a lot.
Jazzki on April 4, 2005 02:35 AM
this is totaly me.. wow i never knew that there was such a thing that would tell me who i am and how i would react to things..

Sahara on April 7, 2005 05:01 PM
perfect, i can say these people know what they are saying. Pretty cool, i can say
ricky on April 15, 2005 02:19 PM
Yeah, my result is accurate. Most people I meet at first get the notion that I'm unfriendly, sometimes scary, but somewhat a genius.
gray on April 17, 2005 12:06 AM
This isme - the parenting bit wanting to make them independent, and the aloof bit, just have to find that 1% that understands me!
Jim on April 23, 2005 02:48 PM
Now I know why we're kind of different from most people.. In very unique ways..
Esther on May 2, 2005 03:15 AM
Yup, that's me!
Miss O'Hara on May 4, 2005 01:12 PM
im an INTJ to the J...lol... im so different beyond my friends and family....being a rare type is GREAT...and I am so MOODY...but its just me HAHAHA
David Brown on May 20, 2005 07:01 AM
i've always wondered why it is that i'm an INTJ yet i'm one of the best writers in my entire school...shouldn't i technically be the worst?
eyeronic on May 24, 2005 07:25 PM
This is pretty much me, except that I don't always value my opinion over others. Most of the time I value the opinions of a select group of people over my own. But the rest fits me pretty well.
Jason on May 27, 2005 01:41 PM
Wow... Am I surprised, I'd think not. Yes this is what I expected I would be!
Braggs on May 28, 2005 09:53 PM
this is SO me, but i think i apply this side of myself to specific settings. i may be a little split among other types, too, but i think i'm predominantly just as difficult to understand verbally and emotionally as these interpretations say. i'm going to show this to my parents so they can understand why i get so withdrawn and argumentative at times, while i'm so humorous and "fluid" at others. OMGOSH YAY GO INTJS, YO!
lana on May 29, 2005 09:49 AM
I've tested INTJ three times out of five different tests over a two-year period with very similar but differing results for the other two times. My question is-- what defines an INTJ the most? All I see are people relating with the introveted side of INTJ, which does make a significant contrast when compared to extroverts, but it does not really distinguish the INTJ from others like INTP. The question then is what is the most characteristic of the INTJ personality scheme?
RampageAI on May 30, 2005 05:06 PM
Ive stayed up all night to take 11 tests, each one denotes that Im classified INTJ Scary thought. Im a former model (F) and force myself to be nice and friendly to people I meet. But I always feel drained after too much people contact and am thrilled when I get home. I dont feel elated to be put in this stratum. I may be unusual in my thirst for learning and my disconnect with other peoples' lives, but I still want to be happy. And it is now obvious that my long term bf is also INTJ. Not good. Guess Ill go find a cute little ENFJ to run roughshod over. I havent met him and I feel sorry fo rhim already. One thing I know is that the career categories should be expanded. Im a Jewelry Designer now and don't see that listed anywhere.
Selkie on June 1, 2005 02:29 AM
I've taken the battery of personality tests before and I almost always tested INFP, which I felt never really described my personality, the one that I knew was inside. Well, in the past year I have had some major changes take place in my life (got divorced, started own business and began taking charge of my life). Then a strange and wonderful thing happened; I took the tests again and I came up an INTJ. It was as if some one inside my own head finally got it. I think backward in my life and it all makes perfect sense. I've always had the mind of a scientist, I've always been the one pursuing knowledge so I can integrate it into my own world view. i too have been looked at as being aloof or stuck up but I am definitely not. I just don't have time to spare dealing with the mundane, watching or doing things I feel have no intrinsic value. This includes friendships and/or love relationships that don't stimulate some part of my intellect. One strange aside is that I usually find myself becoming involved with the artistic types. Could it be that they are as far from the norm as myself? I too am driven by the quest for more knowledge. Knowledge in a multitude of subjects but my favorites are psychology, political science, history and economics. Lately I've been drawn into the infinite possibilities of quantum mechanics and what effect these theories can have on psychology, teaching and a whole host of other topics. If you want a crash course watch What th Bleep Do We Know? I highly recommend it.
ted on June 4, 2005 12:50 AM
INTJ fits me to a "T." I'm always theorizing about everything and finding ways to make the world a better place. My wife doesn't understand how I can read so much philosophy and seem to care so much about the world, yet when someone asks me to do a favor I analyze it and often tell them that they can figure out a way to do it themselves! I have to admit I don't quite understand this aspect of myself. I like the idea of a caring world where people help each other but I don't actually ever ask for help myself and usually don't give any either. For a long time thought of myself as selfish and didn't see anything wrong with that - but still tried to "do unto others as I would have them do unto me." Now, I'm starting to see that maybe I need to do more small things to act on my grand theories of how the world should work. Am am also very analytical and pretty much a loner. The funny thing is that most people really like me but I don't really want to make time for them so after a while most of them give up. The ones that don't end up being my friends, girlfriends, or my wife! Generally, I like who I am but some of the negative aspects of the INTJ thing definitely apply to me and I'm working on changing that. As far as relationships, things seem to go well until the other person starts to realize just how analytical, egotistical, and standoffish I really am. The wieird thing about that is that I seem to be attracted to very "nice" girls who are totally opposite to my cold analytical self. I think I want to become more like them in some way - haven't gotten there yet. I defintely have always felt "different" than other people but I must admit that I like that and don't really want to "fit in" if it means doing things that don't make sense or that don't interest me. I kind of like it also that I'm somewhat mysterious - there's a lot more to me than what most people would guess. I like that aspect of my personality.
David on June 5, 2005 02:37 PM
I am seriously bothered by the fact that this comment thread goes over 3 years (let's archive anything more than 3 months old!), and it's sorted from old to new. Get with the program, Bloginality!
Gregory on June 9, 2005 02:18 PM
Yep, this is pretty much me I guess, though I'm not as 'introverted' as my INTJ profile suggests. Interesting!
Chris on June 14, 2005 01:57 PM
How common is the INTJ personality? Interestingly, www.socionics.com notes that the "Type distribution statistics" show that it is one of the highest personality letterings that is submitted to search engines. However, there are several things to consider: Not all people who search for INTJ may have tested for that personality type and also I wonder if an INTJ would be more likely to research their personality type and/or more likely to use the Internet for that matter. What do you think?
RampageAI on June 16, 2005 10:34 AM
Erm, I have to say that I'm not an INTJ, but I'm really close to it. I'm an INTP, with only a slightly expressed perceiving side. One of my main strengths derived from being an INT is the ability to throw away emotion and do what I have to do to get what I want. It's also a weakness, though, since I suck at relationships and can't understand women for the life of me.
Jeff on June 18, 2005 09:57 AM
Like a true INTJ, I always test positive for it. Consistency is key with us! Go figure. My INTJ quirkiness is probably quite clear in my blog. From reviewing it, I am starting to notice that the most odd things amuse me. Hmmm.
Miss Jackie on June 21, 2005 04:25 PM
i would write it as INTj - the first three letters are clearly me, but i find i'm more flexible on the j/p aspect. eventually, i HAD to pick j because i always have a plan - even if i am more comfortable and, in fact excel, at performing on the fly. ultimately, i need structure - even if it's just so i can chuck it out and go with the flow...lol... incidentally, my twin brother is and ENTp...
sbeviltwin on June 26, 2005 11:57 AM
"Mastermind" is commonly used to describe the leader of a group (usually the ruthless leader of a criminal group) who plans the group's actions. This is not the meaning that would apply to INTJ consciousness.Rather,INTJs tend to a comprehensive "theory of everything" in which mind is the master.
John Hickey on June 30, 2005 06:59 AM
i now know better about myself.. oh i'm a INTJ, cool i love to play the game mastermind, so i really am, haha
irene on July 3, 2005 06:18 AM
I am an INTJ. What I want to know is why almost everyone who has posted is an INTJ. Purportedly INTJ's are one of the least common personality types. Perhaps it is the case, as already noted by a previous poster also named Al, that INTJ's are more likely to delve into finding out about their personality type?
Al C on July 3, 2005 03:02 PM
I think that this personality type fits very well. I especially agree with the statement that it is difficult to translate internal thoughs to others. I do not think that the part about not caring about others' fellings fits me. I think that the first link shows the personality type in the most correct way. But no matter how accurate a typing is, there are always parts that won't fit and they can change over time.
candcchampone on July 14, 2005 04:43 PM
Of course INTJ will be the highest in serch engines. This is because INJs want to know about themselve. And this is because INJs are interested in everything. Other types are too stupid or too meek to know the truth or to use the knowledge. They do not want to know anything . They want to have fun. INTTs do not have fun. I hate this word. They CREATE. Create big things.
al on July 22, 2005 06:35 AM
Perfect. People misperceive me as egomanical and shy when really, I'm just confident in my ability to know when and how to use them for my plans of world domination.
Dirt Wednesday on July 22, 2005 03:34 PM
I wonder if this personnality isn't just peoples desire to be in control. The mastermind sounds cool, makes you feel like you're the man, and the description is grand and uplifting compared to some of the others. Plus it's supposedly rare, which makes you want to be part of something special and different. For those who've taken the test before and liked who they were, they don't want to change into something less interesting, and subconsciously know what to answer in order to stay in that category. If you want to be a mastermind, choose it as your personnality, emmulate and become it. Mastermind means you don't accept the standard of what they tell you you are....
noname on July 29, 2005 01:03 PM
This is the 3rd tst that called me an INTJ. I have always knew i was different somehow. The description of INTJ's seems to be written about me. I dont like one aspect about being one. Its time I change this.
Robert on August 13, 2005 07:40 PM
I am INTJ! I'm somebody! Blah Blah Blah! What a bunch of nonsense.
AssClown on August 15, 2005 07:51 PM
First of all, I love all of you INTJs!!! For the past 2 years I thought I was going crazy because the way I think and behave is completely opposite from the norm. Now I realize that the main reason why I haven't met anyone like me is because INTJ's are 1% of the total population and that we tend to be somewhere consumed in our project of inquiry. (Today, I'm the only one at the office!!!) :-) Be encouraged!!!!
Marcie on August 20, 2005 02:39 PM
Well I guess I'm not the only mastermind...Darn I thought I would be the one to take over the universe. Guess I have lots of competition.
melinda on August 21, 2005 09:15 PM
In every way. I have been an INTJ since the first time I took the full MBTI test 20 years ago and every time I have tested since. Since technically it is a preference test I find it interesting that I have maintained my preferences and continue to be an INTJ as passed 55.
William Meisheid on August 25, 2005 08:44 AM
I'm Just going to be brief and straight to the point, intj personality desciption fits me perfectly, and i'm sastified and happy now being able to idnetify who i'am more, now.
DARRELL on August 27, 2005 07:07 PM
Those who prepare for the future get to create it.
--Bill Brent on August 29, 2005 03:44 AM
INTJ all the way . . . but I am also creative: a writer, poet and artist. I am reserved and competent even if no one else realizes the fact that I am friendly, open and honest. I also love large projects, intricate problem solving, and building organizational systems. Anyone can contact me through my site. Thank you for the opportunity, DL Mullan
dlmullan on September 1, 2005 01:19 PM
i took 3 different tests about this today (one at the guidance office, another at another website, and the last here). 2 times i got to be labelled as an INTJ. fine. i believe now. heehee.
renee on September 6, 2005 02:26 AM
I am a fellow rational. Although an INTP my P is weak so I can sometimes become an INTJ. I ask that we INTP's and INTJ's unite to take over the world. Yes! Muhahahaha.
Erick on September 7, 2005 10:26 PM
Is it me or is everyone else incompetent.
Sean on September 13, 2005 11:58 AM
I'm a bit sceptical about the whole thing, I'm not convinced my ideas are all brilliant. Should I take this as proof?
r on September 14, 2005 12:54 AM
I am an INTJ. I took the test twice. well, when i was reading the type, i confirmed that yes, this is 100% me.
Subhasis Behera on September 16, 2005 01:47 AM
i'm an intj, it suits me fine...but, it can be kinda dull :P
ME on September 27, 2005 12:17 PM
Interesting and no, I'm not shocked by the result. I am an INTJ, which is the Mr Darcy personality; well; that's me.
TD James on October 8, 2005 04:41 PM
It has become apparent that any test given on the INTERNET is going to turn up with INTJs as the majority. All the extroverts are out getting wasted and raping chicks at frat parties to take an Internet personality quiz. I tested INTJ and I am majoring in chemical engineering!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111 Exclamation points to make up for my introversion!!!
Foober on October 9, 2005 05:42 PM
They say we make up only one percent of the population....I guess that makes us something extra special
Ray on October 12, 2005 10:42 PM
... I am so an INTJ. But I'm not quite independant, just yet. I don't have my liscense yet (18). But... heh, I have a HUGE anti-conformity streak... as anyone would recognize if you were around me. So I guess that checks out... I suppose that also justifies my views on love; I see my views being "different" and "better"... yet still an ideal...... that I wish to make real!! hahahahah INTJ POWER!!!!
The Contradiction on October 23, 2005 12:11 AM
It's great to see so many fellow INTJs all in one place! Since our personality type is so rare, I found it comforting to know others think and feel the same way as me. Be yourself with pride my INTJ brothers and sisters!
Tom on October 24, 2005 10:43 AM
I finally started reading more about this INTJ stuff...It's really quite interesting, however I have found that my aura being INDIGO and my main chakra being sahasrara(crown of head)after taking THE TEST. It does even better to explain deep down, who I really am... I would suggest to all on this sight to look into an aura and chakra test, personally...THANX
anjel on November 5, 2005 06:26 PM
Is it just me or do alot of these comments not really pertain to much??? No offense...please do not get mad at me fellow INTJ's.......
anjel on November 5, 2005 06:38 PM
Ever notice how there are more INTJ boards than any other type? Seems, as unsocial as we appear, we are very...VERY... e-social. I wonder why this is. :)
Troy on November 6, 2005 02:49 AM
I understand why others seemed so different and illogical after I took this test. It was interesting to finally figure out why most people never planned anything and then acted surprised when they found themselves s* out of luck later on.
patrick on November 8, 2005 02:08 PM
INTJ through and through, no bones about it.
Te󦩬o on November 13, 2005 04:57 PM
I recently took a MB personality test and found out that im an INTJ... Wow! I never thought about myself but everything i read really did suit me. I never knew me so well. "If i cant find a way, Ill make one"
Joe on November 15, 2005 11:52 PM
i think im more in between but i can be a bit of both depending on my mood.cool test!
Robyn Davies on November 16, 2005 12:11 AM
I am one!
Steve on November 18, 2005 07:27 PM
For being 1% of the population, there certainly seems to be a lot of us. Are we REALLY one of a hundred?
Joy on November 21, 2005 03:27 PM
I am an INTJ but I don't agree that I am unfriendly and judgmental and of course I am affectionate--far contradicting with the result. I just have a different way of showing that I am a good person.
Misty on November 22, 2005 07:02 AM
IN search for a INTJ like my self. I'am cerious if I'am the only INTJ that is so differant or if what I typed here makes good sence to other INTJ's. I beleave that for the most part the INTJ in wrighten from is extreamly corect. The most acurate read-outs out there are the ones who claim the INTJ is the mastermind. Reading over a few of these posts I noticed one in pitickular. Name of the person who posted is john Hickey. I agree with these 2 quotes "I especially agree with the statement that it is difficult to translate internal thoughs to others." "I do not think that the part about not caring about others' fellings fits me. First Quote I agree with because people tend to misunderstand me alot. I tend to explain to much at a time wich can be to much for a person to retain and therefore misunderstand. People like things to be simple rather then complex. Thats is why I have observed that people tend to leave hiden comon sence with in their speach and through that 90% of what is comming out of most peoples mouth is not what their explaning and you got to look at body language and understand their emotional feelings. adressing the second quote. Just because I do not act on how I feel or act on what people feel they need to feel from me does not mean I'am not emotional. I dont understand emotions verry well but I do feel them. I generaly find most people I know and most people I live around includng family to be a waste of my time and therefore have no need to fowered any emotion outword. I find emotion almost usless to express inless its reasonable. To me reasonable is when you have a true friend you can express yourself to or a sexual partner that you are truly in love with. Byond thoes 2 reasons I dont understand why people need things like hugs inless they simply dont cair if they love you or not they just want the feeling. To me people who desire to have hugs for feeling is trying to steal from me when they ask for a hug because its not theirs and if they become upset that is their problem. Take for instance instead of a hug make it a car you cant take that from me I'am going to need it to transport me places. When you take a hug from me its just like taking my car. Also with it being an emotional need rather then a need from that specific person it more like dry masturbation in my opinion. Masturbation is a emotional need rather then being in love with yourself. I personaly do not know anyone who is in love with themself and practices masturbation for the love they have for themself. If a hug is no differant then masturbation for a person them why should I let them have that. Its not my job to make a person happy. Making people happy should be a willing act not work. To many times i see people working to impress other people and forget to impress themself. I find people in general decusting. There are other things I find listed in the intj wrighten from that are illogickle like when they clai mthat the INTJ tends to feel there always right. Thats not the case at all. The issue to that misunderstanding is the fact that INTJ like my self tend to prove things to themself long before they present their knoledge wich is also another reason INTJ dont say a hole lot of things intell something is needed to be done because they dont want to asume something. Anyways Once something is proved to oneself it is hard to change their mind because profe is everything and if a person trys to say otherwise in an argument with an INTJ they better have logic to back them up because otherwise their not going to prove their point and even if the INTJ is wrong the evidance points to what apears to be true rather then beleaving their right just because they feel their right. As mentioned several times in many INTJ documents the INTJ is not verry emotional and does not understand the emotional world verry well so why would an INTJ (FEEL) their always right. Just dont make sence. I also beleave that the hole thing about not accepting blame follows with the hole thing about INTJ's tend to feel their always right wich is also wrong. I personaly accept my faultys and constantly think of ways to improve my faultys. INTJ's have just as many faultys as any normal person except the INTJ trys to improve so much that when another person brings up an problemitac issue the INTJ looks to the logic and sees the reaulity that the person adessing this problem is looking at the surface of things rather then the hole picture. Example: I personaly rather spend time with someone I cair about or talk to someone I cair about over an aquantace anyday. Most people I claim to be my friends to others are actuly just an aquantance to me just to I have something to do with other people even if I dont exactuly desire their presance. So when I'am on the phone with a real friend and a aquantance drops by to say hi and spend time with me I'am not going to hang up the phone for that aquantace. I'am going to go about my buysness doing what I enjoy rather then pleasing someone I generaly dont like and just use for company. People become angry at me for this but its not my problem. No plans were made to do anything with the aquantace and they just droped by to say hi to bad I got better things to do next time make plans I dont cair if your mad at me dont hurt me none. Its as simple as that. People who are not worth the time may become offended and feel like the INTJ is being rude and and blame the INTJ for the emotional stress when they fail to reconize that they caused their own pain for not reconizing how much the INTJ dont give a shit about them in the first place. Generaly the INTJ will hide that they do not generaly like aperson but if the person asked that means their ready to know the truth and there fore they have earned it and will receave it and learn the reality of how their thought about. The reason for waiting for the question to come about is for 2 reasons . One if things are told to a person they dont like to hear they will retalieate and feel bad and hate you wich is most undesired by the INTJ and the second is that when an INTJ tells a person who askes their ready to be told and the situation is so much better. Much less problems involed. INTJ find it illogickle to just tell a person they hate another person while giving a reason because most people just scream I hate you while the INTJ trys to explain the best he/she can and ends up destroying one self for trying to make thing right because the INTJ receaves more punishment for trying to explaining the reality of a problem or why it is that the INTJ hates a person. Logic and thinking of an INTJ is way byond most peoples comprehantion even other INTJ"s because the way of thinking between the 2 is so differant. TO understand how an INTJ alalizes things I will go over how I analize things. In a situation where a people are uptight after an argument its alot for the INTJ to think about and things can be emotional espeshly when other people are being so emotional. I personaly feel what other people feel rather then feel ofr my self for the most part. When I hve real good idea I dwell on it intell I can present it perfictuly and with a perfict understanding. While thinging I might make a noise or something from such though kinda like when a person drawing stitcks their toung out. By doing so People ask are you ok, things will be fine because they think your having emotional problems as well when its not the case at all. The next thing to dwell on is how to explain you were not having some sort of emotional breakdown or anything knowing the explunation would never make any sence consittering the situation involed it just wouldent seem logickle to a person. INTJ's are generaly emotionless but have alot of emotion for the right people wich is unsean by most people. A normal people would say the INTJ is emotionless but would also acuse an INTJ of denying emotions or just trying to hold them back when its not the case at all. Because of this the INTJ like to stay generaly quiet and loves to listen to other people and laugh inside how stupied most people are being when it comes to conflicts realizing that 75% of the conflicts that people have with oneanother are ushly illogickle because both partys (argur and argue) are along the same lines and ushly both partys are corect about their point of view but the conflict persists because neither of them can see the other persons point of view because they dident experace the other person point of view only their own and can not look at reality but only what they feel and see in their point of view. No analise involed no proving to them selves that their conclushion is logickle just asumes because how things played out made something aprear as such. IF anyone agrees with me on all of this I would love an E-mail because I would find it interesting to relate to a person that views the same views i have consittering the INTJ popluation of the planet is 1% witch answers one of the previous pots on this page.
thedarkbanshee on November 23, 2005 03:28 AM
The more I read about people's comments on intj leads me to wonder if they were more interested in posting a comment or reading about being intj...It seem's to me they don't tend to make sense on purpose...I wonder why that is???An understanding of this would help...I did not think the personality test was all just ONE big GAME...I assumed(my bad) that the intentions were to find out more about your personality...I guess not though,for most???And what does planning or finding yourself s# out of luck have anything to do with an intj personality...I guess it pertains to "if i can't find a way,i will make one".Things that make you go hhmmm...

fits me around 94 percent .I am an INTJ.
brandon on December 16, 2005 11:15 PM
Your test description fits me around 95 percent. I am an INTJ and feeling more proud of it. Nice to see so many more. Best wishes to you all.
brandon on December 16, 2005 11:16 PM
I am trully an INTJ and here's why. I am very creative and logical. Sometimes I can be too direct about something. I also tested out as a 5w4 wing and that has a connection with my profile. Characters and people of this type include George Harrison, Spock, Egon, Chevy Chase, and Einstein (He can also be an INTP). I can be an ISTJ at times ,but the INTJ I think is the most accurate.

Hi, are there any message boards for us?
Monda on December 22, 2005 10:49 PM
I wasn't suprised when the first 10 posts I saw were about the same reactions I had after taking the test. It was feeling weird (kind of special) and feeling proud (kind of special) LoL
Peter on January 2, 2006 05:08 AM
I am an INTJ and 14 years old, so at times it is hard for me to find people around my age group who are like myself. My group of friends in school are all F temperments, and myself being an extreme T feel that I can not relate much. I love being an INTJ very much! :P As many other INTJs I often mistake myself as an INTP, but have found certain sites that cleared that right up. :D
Nada Awad on January 5, 2006 09:10 AM
If you are in fact an INTJ cheak out the pathological lyer and if not look at it anyway. Its good knoledge. Here are some links. http://www.dvorak.org/blog/?p=2954 http://www.usc.edu/uscnews/stories/11655.html Link to a vidiohttp://www2.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/200503/tows_past_20050301.jhtml this fits me well and in the first lin kI gate I left a message so you can look at that and see my opinion on the subject. I was just cerious if any of the INTJ's fit in the discription of the pathological lyer
thedarkbanshee on January 12, 2006 08:28 PM
INTJ fits me perfectly, down to every detail. It's been difficult sometimes - I am a US diplomat, and come from the last generation in which women were supposed to be 'womanly' (read, girly, obedient, unambitious, self-doubting, non-working except as a clerk or cashier) rather than strong, certain, professional and self-assured. Still, I've made a way through the world, sometimes with difficulty. I wouldn't be anything else for love, money or peace of mind. Love your note, INTJohn!
Kathryn on January 15, 2006 05:14 AM
Unfortunately, I do tend to be undemonstrative and to misunderstand social mores that everyone else understands. Occasionally, I have been able to be more spontaneous and outgoing but all that does is highlight the extreme differences between what I find appropriate and funny and what other people appreciate. It is a lonely world for the independent intj. It's lucky we're hearty enough intellectually and intuitively to stand it.
Leslie on January 17, 2006 01:56 AM
OK, you lot. I've come up with a plan. So listen carefully for a moment while I tell you all what we're going to do... ;)

I am always working toward a goal. The process of seeking a goal makes me as happy as achieving the goal. As long as I am making progress.
Mike on January 19, 2006 06:39 AM
i sued to like people thinking me a wierd, i even used to intentionally do wierd things just to get rid of people. i realised the consequences of that soon after :) but you just become friends and they accept you are what you are which is great. yet never for a moment i doubted that someone out there would know exactly what i was doing. reading socionics sect on uncovered INTJ's made me realise how this wierdness is really incomprehensible even for other intj's. that crushed my hopes and brought me closer to isolation and loneliness in this world. but it also snapped me into a reality which now i better in.
bleake on January 19, 2006 06:56 AM
well, i can get critical and skeptical about things...and I like exploring possibilities!
jetskiters on January 24, 2006 02:29 AM
A fellow INTJ looking for feed back. I'm an INTJ wondering how many other INTJ steriotyped people are also psychological lyers. Here is a link to a page describing a psychological lyer http://www.usc.edu/uscnews/stories/11655.html there are many others and you should look up the psychological lyer if your actuly interested because there is lots more info then just the page I pointed out. I also think the analigy on the psychological lyer is a bit edgy or wrong but you can determin your own thoughts apon it jus take a look. Even if your not a psychological lyer this is something you might want to educate your self on its most interesting to learn about. If you desire to contact me my E-mail is thedarkbanshee@mail.com
thedarkbanshee on January 31, 2006 12:54 AM
I dont think this test is very accurate... there is a much larger one at http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp if you really want an indepth one.
does it matter on February 1, 2006 03:34 PM
I believe in truth over tact. And that most others require tact to sustain harmony. A break in their balance may yield harmful effects in their mental health, which then affects their immune system which results in poor physical health (or occasional illness). Life concerns itself with preservation and vitality. That being so, we INTJs sometimes counter protocols life implemented via most societies formed by linguistic capacity from evolved minds. INTJs seek/demand truth to empower us, but not for social reasons. We approximate the social concept of 'individual' more than other p-types. That being so, we can't help but to feel lonely sometimes. We exist in 1 percent of the population (sometimes less taking the % of the four factors into account: I N T J) so it comes with the territory. This page is not meant to give a detailed description of us INTJ's but a concise description of our blogging style. Even if you don't blog, you critics should have noticed that. INTJs are also known as Prometheans, Masterminds, Rationals, Aggresive, amongst others. This is the most thorough description of INTJs I've come across: http://theorem.ca/~mvcorks/intj.html My blog sites are: http://paulmerc.iblogs.com/ http://spaces.msn.com/drevilmaycare/blog/ If you're an intellectual INTJ, feel free to contact me.
Paul Merc on February 12, 2006 02:43 PM
I would agree the last post from (does it matter) I found I was an INTJ so I looked it up and found this page. The test here says I'm actuly not an INTJ but most other tests say I'm and the test I took on the site (does it matter) posted also says I'm an INTJ and most descriptions describe me well. I beleave the http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp site is worth the look I cheaked it out it was good
thedarkbanshee on February 12, 2006 03:43 PM
I am a true blue INTJ, but lately Ive been not wanting to be one. I was happy that I was considered "achievement oriented" , "independent" and "organised" , but sometimes, I can be heartless and cruel to the people I care about without meaning to. And its something I can't control. I dont think I like myself too much right now.
Lena on February 16, 2006 08:21 AM
That's pathological, not psychological. Learn to read.
James on February 17, 2006 06:47 AM
Also, I don't think INTJs are very prone to lying. (Not this one, at least.) If anything, an INTJ is more like the autistic people mentioned toward the end of the article, who have much trouble lying. However, if lying would come in handy, it's probably not outside of the moral sphere of a typical INTJ. The only "research" I've done about this is reading that short article, but it seems to me the pathological liar might fall under ENFJ or ENFP. Just a guess.
James on February 17, 2006 07:10 AM
Found out I was an INTJ about 15 years ago and it was a revelation. I was half convinced that I was dropped off on this planet by some aliens because I could just never make sense of other people. Then to see it written in black and white, wow. I'm not an alien, I'm just a freak! People have commented on how many notes there are here, and how many searches there are for INTJ even though we are such a low percentage of the population, it's probably because we are more narcissistic than others. Or, the fact that we find there are others like us is so fascinating, as I've known very few INTJs in my life. (I didn't like most of them! They were too cold and aloof!) Lena, don't despair. Being an INTJ is tough, I call myself a "recovering" INTJ because I am trying to fix the more caustic sides of my personality. I love the originality, the thinking, the wackiness of me, but I wish to be more socially acceptable. Dark Banshee, if English is your first language, you probably aren't INTJ. If you have to ask why, they you definitely aren't an INTJ. The thing I noticed about this blog is how well written most of it is, and how few grammatical or spelling mistakes there are. Well, I have to go and try and blend in with the masses for the rest of the day...
Jim on February 24, 2006 01:09 PM
I used to feel like I was strange/weird compared to everyone else, but after reading others postings, I can take comfort in the way I am.
NPK on March 4, 2006 08:20 PM
I only recently found that I am an INTJ of extreme magnitude. For years I wondered why I felt so different from everyone I associated with. At times I felt almost ostracized, due to my unique perspective and thought pattern. I do take comfort, however, in knowing that there are others who share my perfectionist tendencies and social ineptness. In a way I truly enjoy the INTJ personality type. It is unusual and I, for one, am pleased to stand out.
Lindsay on March 10, 2006 05:34 PM
To Jim specifickly I admire your judgement about my posts. I know my spelling is offel and I do use spell cheak. Spell cheak does not catch everything. It is only common sence that a INTJ would only be a perfectionist when it comes to spelling. I do what I can to make it perfict however I only have a 3rd grade schooling education. Thats part of why I teach my self everything I need to know on the computer. Also my asking I found to be of good reasoning. A wrighten statement from a professional is not anything like getting the real facts from real INTJ's. It does make a differance. I like to be acurate rather then inacurate. If you read most intj profiles there are many inconsistancys. Look them up you will see for yourself. I have also found a few that almost discribe me just as I have explained in this blog above. Also there has been an INTJ personality type who has agreed with me E-mailed me and consittered about being more like I have discribed my self above in this blog. Its interesting to know you took the time to read what I typed up. You seem to be as cerious as I'm my self you clearly apear tpo be an INTJ to me. I find it funny how you stated in these words. (I didn't like most of them! They were too cold and aloof!) I like the INTJ's I have met personaly. People take the feeling things compleatly wrong there is feeling for the INTJ just that its generaly not projected because its near to usless most of the time. INTJ feel and know when their projecting themselves as COLD HEARTED but do not cair if its going to hurt a person because the INTJ knows that projecting something other then what will come off as COLD HEARTED is of falsehood wich is something most INTJ's dislike. Obiviously the people you met that are also INTJ did not find you worth a squat to give any consitteration to cair about wich is why they came off so cold towered you. You seem much like an INTJ however you dont seem to be extreamly cerious to know things like most INTJ's I find that a bit strainge. Also what do you mean by a recovering INTJ? Do you mean recovering from being one or do you mean recovering to become one more so then previously. What does saecasim or as you put it caustic have to do with anything? To other INTJ personality types I wonder why it is that most posts on this blog tend to have something indicating that its a good thing to know there are other people like themselves and their not so weired after all. I liked being so uneak and to find others like my self was quite strainge to me altough I do stand out from most INTJ's as it apears I'm also not so far off but I like being far off as possable because I like the idea of being uneak. I like the idea that the INTJ is only 1% of the worlds population. The smaller the number the better. I dont want to be some drone that acts from chemical reactions and that my every move is do to my chemical basis rather then my self or who I'm. I want to be me. I dont want others to be like me because its natural I simply want to be me. Can any one els explain why they must fit in because I seem to be the compleat opposite except with the people I cair about. Even the people I cair abot I dont want to be exactuly like me I just need them to understand me and have simular views. I dont need a 1% population of people I dont even know to be like me. Makes me fell insunificant like there is no real meaning to who I really I'm. Does any one have an explunation?

I have not been "here" for a few months as I've been abit busy. Glad to see that there are some comments that have been posted that have some intellectual depth & substance to them. A comment I would like to make to the younger aged INTJ's - your individulaity, independence, intelligence & intellectualism ARE NOT hinderences unless you allow them to be. Also, its time to quit with negative type self descriptors like "weird",etc. We are NOT weird. As NT's "We" are RATIONAL - the other 95% of the population is "weird" -"might is rarely right". Just because "We" are an extreme minority does not makes us negative-GET WITH IT-accentuate the positive and eschew the negative......become wht you are-perhaps the salvation of Mankind . Also, to Kathryn of 15 Jan.'06- I too have been to a few Embassy State dinners in my life-would like to here from you. Get back & we'll figure something out for communication. INTJohn
INTJohn on March 14, 2006 11:38 AM
... hmm, normally i wouldnt respond to such nonsense, but i have read many of these putative documentations declaring the withdrawl and intellectual unbias of the supposed supreme...- right! like any human in nature could apply themselves to the expansion of knowledge! if you only know one language you are not an intj, [gah], if you claim such a boast then you have logically found what you believe placement to be! and how weird and strange it must feel... most of the time i am in neglect of belief.- you see, most individuals are not honest with themselves and to believe they answered a test in the form of truth? well, i pity those that believe in such. introverted i am. intuitive i am. thinking i am. judging i am... but i am much more as well. my ideas are products of the self. and myself is that of true reality and that of your cognitive delusion is only that of a wretched automaton. all humans are lies raised by lies. intj? you decide! justin caseidie

Banshee,I would plunge into explanation,however like you I also get bored with typing...Unfortunately,due to the perfectionism of I N T J,I like my editing to be as precise as possible...Given that,I also do not FIND(except for that one),the need to use punctuation and capitalization to express a SENSE(oh,and this one also)of superiorty..What are we doing with the english language??Regardless of age,does the intj description really fit with you all??No,the immaturity factor does not pertain to bad english...With that,please note this,"everybody is weird in their own little way".If you give them an inch they take a mile!!!Then turn around and shove it in YOUR(oops,there would be another,my bad!)face as forthright as possible.The only one so far,with a comical sense not immaturity,that strikes me as an intj would be Mr.Banshee...Congrats on the concept of uniqueness,you get a cookie...As for the foundation of our society based on conditions,which we are raised by...Do not adhere to the category of product of your enviroment...That would defeat the purpose of hereditary dysfunction...I prefer,like it states,to find the flaws in the system not in the people!!!I also would like to type on the idea of nonsense and name calling...Why can we not just let it be!!!Enough of this,I have studies to do and knowledge to attain,it's to bad I gave up on the strategic planning of being man's salvation years ago...Hey,it's not my fault man is dammed,that happened way before I was born.I do believe it had something to do with emotional immaturity though...
RaNge on April 1, 2006 02:33 PM
INTJ, INTJ, INTJ... I've always been one. I really wish we weren't so anti-social and strange as compared to the general population. I have found the Classic INTJ description fits me to a Tee, and I have accepted it. Now that I am "mid-career", I am finally capitalizing on my God-given INTJ gifts, which are my rare and unique systems design and telecommunications network planning skills. Thankfully, these skills, of which I am really just learning how to market, have been the key to providing a modest living for my family. A message for the INTJ's of the world, "Don't give up! Strive to make the most of your talents -- strive to accept who you are, while improving the weaker social areas of our rare personality type." To be successful, we must capitalize on our strengths, while improving the social deficiencies that plague us. Best of Luck to us all…
The Planning Engineer on April 3, 2006 12:33 AM
This test is gay. I looked at another site to get descriptions of the personality types, and they all fit everybody. It's like the horoscopes: "you have a tendency to mask your feelings sometimes" or "sometimes you feel others dont see your potential". Whatever.
johnny on April 3, 2006 10:50 PM
Roughly a week ago I left a message on this board.To my dismay it has not yet shown up...Am I to assume it was intercepted,due to the context of it??I was not aware that I had used foul language.I attempted to plunge into explanations for banshee,however I also get bored with typing...Unfortunately given the perfectionism factor of intj I find myself typing with proper english.If there is such a thing,that is.Especially given the extreme usage of punctuation and misspelled words on this page...That also leads me to question how many of you are in fact intj...I would like to give banshee a cookie,it seems as if he(minus the spell check)has the same views as I on certain subjects...I would much rather be different and not a drone or robot myself...Check this,not only do we have to deal with chemical reactions in our head we also deal with the chemical reaction of other heads around us.Then we delve into industrialization and jet fuel,before you know it we have so MANY chemical compounds that make up the air we breath,what's the point of breathing??With that as very factual data it really leads me to want to stay in doors and not have to deal with the monotony of chemicals gallore!!!Good job banshee,I figure one day mine will inevitably end up outdoors with the need to get more smokes!!!Ha Ha Hee Hee

I hate people in general. They just seem so alien to me. Interestingly once someone introduces me to someone, I have no trouble interacting though. But that first initial introduction is the only thing thats keeping me from becoming the next Steven Spielberg.

I have tested as INFJ and INTJ, but I think at present INTJ fits me more. I'm always trying to fix and improve things. I have been told by male bosses to "soften" my approach. Any guys had that said to them by male bosses? Hermetia

If you want to know why your MBTI personality description seems to fit you so well, go to Wikipedia and read about the Forer effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forer_effect). Jung's four dichotomies are so arbitrary as to be useless. Like most psychology, the MBTI is more interesting than it is accurate. Taking an MBTI test gives people an excuse to talk about themselves, which everyone loves to do anyway.
tim on April 22, 2006 08:29 AM
I have been dating an INTJ male for fuve months now. I have for some time not understood the lack of emotion expressed by this wonderful person. It is hard to understand at times. Any input would be very helpful to me. I am a female INFP.
meeeee on April 27, 2006 02:01 AM
YEAH!!!!Tim get's a cookie also!!!That and more less the generalization of creatures of habit.Regardless of the idea of a strict regiman or habitual lifestyle,we all still have our own unique thought patterns.Unless of course you are more prone to hopping on the bandwagon(advertising marketing strategy).Just a way to explain the woe's of our ways and talk about ourselves.I prefer to talk about intellectual data,like per say Stanford and Binet's studies of IQ...
range on May 1, 2006 09:04 PM
Being an INTJ is really nice. It's just that it's hard to relate with us (btw, I'm an INTJ too). Since INTJs are thinkers, it would be a bad news for feelers because we tend to seem insensitive. I think, the only thing that will help INTJs when it comes to being sensitive is to use their heads in order to know how others feel. That's how we thinking in order to feel or something like that ;)... hehe

John on May 10, 2006 05:23 PM
I am a ISFJ and at times an INFJ. I have always thought I was weird from another world, but now I know I am very unique. People that I associate with really don't know how to take me. They mistake me as anti-socialble person and a loner. Personally I enjoy my time to myself it allows me to breathe. I have always been a very caring and concern person always about others feelings. But hey that's me and I'm not complaining I finally have understanding about who I am and why I am here. Praise the Lord because He does not make mistakes.

Interesting insights here. I always knew I hated being a conformist or a lemming, even though it constantly makes my life difficult. My parents have always worried about me, but I always somehow manage to succeed at what I do. Most people who have watched too much 'Star Trek' describe me as a 'Vulcan'...way too concerned with logic, justice and ideals. I think I'm secretly just autistic. Lol...people suck anyway.

christopher j. on May 19, 2006 06:50 AM
I found out about Myers Briggs two days ago and did two tests (on two different sites), both showed that I'm an INTJ. I've read various descriptions, and it's all me, it's almost scary, I could have written that descripton myself. I'm not much of an engineer or scientist though, as many INTJs apparently are. Not quite sure what to think of my recent discovery. Apparently less than 1% of the population are INTJs which makes us a very small minority, and that explains why many of us feel a bit "odd" and don't really know how to relate or "fit in" in the society. I'm not sure if I like being an INTJ though. Reading the description of myself I could not help thinking that some things are just a bit sad, like my difficulties at expressing feelings, keeping a bit too much distance to other people, and the problems of never being completely satisfied and always having a thurst for more knowledge. Oh well, can't really change personality type can you?! At least the good thing about knowing what personality type you are is that you can idenfity your weaknesses and and work on it.
Jacob on May 21, 2006 05:12 PM
I know the feeling of testing as an INTJ and not really wanting to be one. Get over it. You have been role playing. It is nice to play extrovert when in reality you miserable playing it. Start being yourself(INTJ). Just learn all the ways of coping with this personality.
Franz on May 23, 2006 06:20 PM
I often feel that I'm the most misunderstood person in the world. No one gets me... because I can't communicate to them. So I've started trying to do this... going through some of the midlife INTJ problems a bit early in life I suppose... HMMM Let's plan this out...

Raúl González Zorrilla on June 9, 2006 03:23 AM
Given there's so much variation in the third or fourth letters for an individual taking the test (well, I'll speak for myself, anyway), it's best to be skeptical about the Myers-Briggs. Although by training and temperament I'm an engineer I'm also a musician so there are so many reasons for me to enjoy interacting with people, even if most people don't see me as spontaneous. It does make it difficult to make good friends, but I've always been optimistic about that, ironically.
Eric on June 9, 2006 01:29 PM
I am an INTJ. I took this test first when i was 17, 22 then 28 and it has remained the same aside from the scores are coming closer to 49/51 with the lean twards INTJ. This test is interesting and as with anything shoulc be a learning tool, not as a crutch to describe who you are and how you should be, you are in charge of that. There is still much to learn about personality and thought patterns but until emotional and personal progression is aired out through society and understood widely this test is fitting. I believe any profile can be successful at anything they choose no matter how unconventional. The first time i took this test and read the portrait i realized i needed to improve my communication skills because the only people that appeared to understand me were ones that took a strange interest in trying to understand me through much explaining resulting in a secret near cryptic personal language between each other. Most people crinkle their brows with a complex look on their face and shake their head whe i try to explain a deep thought. I've worked on many aspects of myself and the test as mentioned has come out the same over a 10yr span regardless of how much my personal growth has manifested. If you don't know me i come across as a social butterfly but when alone or in thought appear aloof no matter what my feelings truly may be.
Angie on June 21, 2006 01:23 AM
Ever since I read about the Myers Briggs Test and took a few versions of it myself (getting INTJ on all of them), I've been having my friends and family take the test in hopes that somebody I know would be an INTJ like me. Strangely enough, the kid I've liked for years tested the same as I did. I had always noticed in classes how alike we were. We would always get frustrated in our Social Studies class for example when all of the other kids proved extremely incompetant and we were the ones stuck doing all of the work. Also, something my mother told me I said when I was little made me laugh when I realized that I must have been an INTJ even at a young age too. She told me that I would always come home from school complaining that the other children were stupid. But then again, that's not really my fault, they just were.
Kasey on June 28, 2006 07:05 PM
I am going to find an INTJ group online and see if I can stand them! LOL This whole thing explains my obsession with Google.
Lisa on June 30, 2006 12:25 PM
Just read a profile and you'll know me, I'm just lazy.
Melissa on July 6, 2006 07:03 PM
I just made a INTJ section of my slashdot like blog, see above link. I'm thinking about starting a scholarship for INTJs, right now just for the extended family, because I don't have a lot of money, and they probably don't know about it because they are in India and wouldn't try to cheat on the personality test.
Naveen Garg on July 8, 2006 01:47 PM
Do you have a link for your site as I'd like to link to you?
Kathy Berman on July 20, 2006 12:37 PM
Now I know why I think of most people as idiots. I really don't mind. It's not that I'm evil or don't wish them all the best, I just can't be bothered with listening to them. I think that's quite ok. I read all the time, work as a writer, researcher and scientist. I am very cynical and indeed snobbish but in a leave-me-alone kind of way. I go out a lot, but am permanently bored and restless. The best thing is meeting somebody who is above average and extremely intelligent. That makes me happy. However, that doesn't happen often. I am a very loving and caring person for people who deserve it. I am loyal and extremely honest. What about you?
Cloe on July 28, 2006 07:46 AM
I always get INTJ on these tests. But I seem to act like an ISTJ in many situations... and like an INTP in others. Could it be that this is all twaddle, designed purely to make money for the MyersBriggs foundation?
MattM on July 28, 2006 11:46 AM
Finally I understood why some people are very nonsense. I used to discard immediately ideas or theories of people, sometimes friends, just because they seemed to me irrational and pointless. oh, almost forgot, with my loved ones, sometimes I have hardtimes discussing with them the reality of the relationship, rather than let them know they be right and me responding to their feelings, I was trying to give reason and sense. Now I understand where these wave-lenght differences come from; my personality type!
Magnus on August 8, 2006 11:47 AM
I really understand the comment "permanently bored and restless". I seek NOT to be "permanently bored and restless", however, so it remains my constant challenge to find ways not to be. Skydiving worked for a while - I started when I was 36. 222 jumps and a 'D' license later I was bored again and the search continues. I suggest periodic testing. I tested ENTP into my late 30's and then tested several times again when I was 42 (a few months ago) and it really does change as we grow. These classifications help us in understanding who we are AND how others may see us. Ciao!
Alexandria McConocha on August 23, 2006 08:38 PM
Idiots!! humanmeterics.com has a much better test and diagnosis, yes I'm INTJ, I shouldn't even have to put it
B on August 23, 2006 11:01 PM
INTJ couldnt define me more perfectly. I think EVERYTHING out, and have it all planned out, but then I sort of forget the little detail of actually doing it. I wouldn't say I'm a "Mastermind" though. My grades are not bad at all, but nothing out of the ordinary, I more or less have the absolute potential to be a mastermind (and plan on being one, just haven't gotten around to that yet).
Carl on October 5, 2006 07:45 PM
I see alot of coments on my posts here and over 90% have them have been positivce towered me. I was not sure other people were INTJ for real on here or if it was me who was not the INTJ. I knew I fit well and I see a select few who are absolutly INTJ right along with me weather they made a coment in my favor or not I can clearly see certian people are totaly INTJ. I would take the time to point out who I see is INTJ in the most of defenance however i nolonger have the time like I used to. I'm creating a book I see alot of you are interested in just what I have typed here. I will post here where you can get my book when it is done. I have a real long way to go. Its not just INTJ related .Its on humanity its self. I know my grammer and spelling is CRAP however I have a great editor and it will be PERFICT in every way possable. Pleave leave input .I'm interested if any of you would be willing to pay for a copy at prudction cost.
thedarkbanshee on October 6, 2006 12:09 AM
I was always treated like an alien, as long as I can remember, and felt like one. After reading my personality-type, it all makes sense now. I'm unique and normal after all. Wonderful!!!!!!!
Ramiakin on October 11, 2006 04:39 PM
Not reallly. I wish you guys would stop with the back slappping and get over the 1% mystique. Remember, none of the types is better than another, and all this INTJ's are so cool. bla bla bla, is getting. And the Test is not accurate. You might be experiencing developent in a tertiary or secondary function, making you think that your type changes. And INTJ's aren't smarter than everyone else. INtuition isn't better than sensing, and you use both. Thinking isn't better than feeling, and you use both.
blaaaaa on October 21, 2006 06:07 PM
i know being a woman its really difficult to fit in...i used to ponder over it a lot during my childhood..then i settled thinking i was different and unique...and it stopped bothering me...this fits it perfectly...what i did't know was, we are the rarest breed....the most unique...simply, we are not meant to fit in...so behold you all, my fellow men...for we are the rarest and unique...!!!
shrynakesavan on October 29, 2006 04:37 AM
I am an INTJ, always have been always will, although I've trained myself to be a bit more extroverted to get closer to fellow humans. Surprise surprise though, I Fell in love with a fellow INTJ, and he and I loved each other from afar for years, both never fully getting over it. We just found out we were both INTJ's the other day, I said "Hey guess what I got my myers briggs results professionally read today!" and he posted INTJ, and I was going to brag too! 1-2 % of the population, and my former best friend beats me to the punch. Oh well. I'm still having relationship problems though, however being a girl, I find it useful to look a man in the eyes and tell him, "I care for you, but I am so unexperienced, I don't know what to do. I dont understand relationships, but I want to find out with you". It makes some guys MELT. <3 and its all true.
Jesseh on November 13, 2006 07:37 AM
I am an avid reader of a variety of subjects. Psychology,Science, Arts, History, Philosophy,Mythology, medicine.....etc etc. etc. I am gonna complete the Unified Field Theory, which Mr. Einstein cud not!!!! LOL .Only an INTJ can think & accomplish that. Cheers!!
axisjump on November 13, 2006 02:32 PM
I like the comments on this site. Most comments I find on the internet are simple and without depth. It's comforting to read comments that were at least thought out and make sense. I don't have time to read all the comments right now but I would like to try and take a stab at the last comment I read which was the thedarkbanshee's. But It's 5:37 in the morning and I haven't slept a wink since 6:00 yesterday. So it's time for me to sleep. I've been deprived long enough. Seriously though add me to you mycrib if you have analytical traits described in INTJ. I'd like to scrutinize and dissection any obscure topic exhaustively with you. PLEASE : ) peace
Alex on December 11, 2006 05:51 AM
This is me. INTJ romance: I have always had difficulty initiating romantic relationships. It's not that I don't understand the dynamics; it's that I value my individuality and tend to have difficulty finding compatible mates. INTJ career: I am a business systems designer currently managing a complex multi-year project which will enable multiple product line and differentiated revenue recognition querying from a relational database for an aggressively expanding organization. I have bitten off more than I can chew because I found the existing systemic inefficiencies to be intolerable. Even though they didn't directly affect me. ;) I am very impressed with the Myers-Briggs model - it's actually the first psychological model that I haven't deconstructued and dismissed after a first review. I am currently analyzing the implications of my personality type and plan on implementing a strategy for self-improvement. I am clearly, consistently, undeniably INTJ. Yours, Art
Art on December 12, 2006 07:17 PM
Two INTJs falling for one another, the male strays and hides his heart, he looks for someone exciting to complete him. The female, she is loyal to the end, as long as he is happy, I am content with misery. Two INTJs, their hearts entwined, only drugs may open their hearts... and share their search for love.
Jesseh on December 28, 2006 02:22 AM
Not Mastermind, Mind Master
intjmm on December 30, 2006 08:55 PM
This personality fits me almost perfect. I love to read about things that interest me, espially technical things(race cars). I am glad to know what my strengths and weaknesses are so that i can work on them. I do come off as shy, but I have great friends that know me. After reading about me I feel like i could accomplish anything i want to because of my capacity to learn.
Brandon Walker on January 24, 2007 11:34 PM
All INTJs are very proud they are, i am so i also am. However i think alot here think they are supermen now becuase they have got this score. At the end of the day we are all people :-D
Kyle on February 12, 2007 08:29 AM
I'm an INFJ, 100%... I thought it was interesting that only 1% of the population is an INFJ... are those statistics still standing or what?? Also, I wanted to make the observation: THERE SURE ARE A LOT OF INTJ's here. You guys must be into self evaluation or something.
Jenny on February 25, 2007 04:50 PM
Calm down people, ITJ doesn't mean perfect, or that you need to flaunt it if it is. It seems the most logical to me, but I'm biased there. It's creepy though how sometimes they word thing perfectly (from other sources aswell, all INTJ might be interested to google 'INTJ'). I find the more organized I am the more successfully things ensue. Remember to not get caught up in a logical loop when your stressed, just stop. Think/do something else, it beats not getting anywhere/getting depressed. Also, I think that these sorts of things should be taken with a grain of salt, I find myself focussing on an INTJ's supposed weak points, but it is a trait of this type to be extremely focussed and determined. These psychological writups aren't necessarily calling you arrogant or telling you who you should be. Just how people of this type frequently become, 'tendencies' should be stressed. For myself, love is quite another concept to wrap my head around. Biologically it works, psychologically, statistically- but in application it's another world altogether. Sometimes a little muddle, a little crazy-stepping outside the system can help your life. Learning to feel I supposed is what I'm doing.
Davey on March 7, 2007 07:42 PM
I answered all questions and I'm actually happy with the results. This is me, now I want to move on and continue to grow while using my personality strengths.
Ron "Gine boy" Swoveland on March 19, 2007 07:23 PM
Alex it clear to me you are interested in my thoughts. Several people have come to me through this website and I have discussed a great deal of my things through E-mails. I'm most interested in knowing your thoughts are you are mine and would enjoy a E-mail from you. We could discuss a great deal of many things just as you have asked for. my E-mail is thedarkbanshee@mail.com
thedarkbanshee on April 18, 2007 12:36 AM
Why is it that there is such a high proportion of iNTj's (ahem...Masterminds) discussing their personality (type) on the internet? Could it be a made-to-measure answer for all those computer nerds who have ever wondered why their party invitations are...lost in the mail all too frequently? INTj's represent 1% of the general population; the majority of you are not introverted, irritatingly logical and argumentative, but simply socially inept or bores to be around.
Skeptic on April 21, 2007 06:29 PM
People think I'm a cold hard bitch, but really I'm just a harmless li'l bookworm!
Kelly on April 22, 2007 10:58 PM
RaNge Its obvious to me I made an impression on you. Indeed my spelling is bad. Clearly enough you deal with it to understand me. I have a program that better helps me now. I do try my best. I had horrible schooling. RaNge if you get bored typing you could E-mail me at thedarkbanshee@mail.com so that you can save your progress and get back to it anytime. I would love to read your input. for your efforts I would be willing to give you my book for free after completion. I clearly see you made efforts and this website never posted it just as my last 4 posts have not been posted here.
thedarkbanshee on April 22, 2007 11:44 PM
I agree with most of you, people think I'm cold and distant, but I'm really not. Just a little "shy", I guess.
Teri on May 23, 2007 01:41 PM
I broke up with an INTJ months ago. He is smart, handsome, successful and has a quirky sense of humor, which I appreciated. But he really does not know how to work on a relationship. Do most of you INTJs have this 'my way or the highway' attitude with your significant others? This man was extremely lonely when I met him. And he's lonely now. He says that he is dating someone, but I know he isn't. How does anyone get through to an INTJ and keep him/her from quitting a relationship the moment it gets a little uncomfortable? Are all you INTJs that accepting of your loneliness, as if it's your lot in life to be lonely? If I could find the right woman for him, I would do it, just to see him happy and contented with his life. INTJs, please give me your feedback; it would be much appreciated.
xtremegeek on June 5, 2007 06:10 PM
I'm definitely an INTJ, but I also lean toward INFJ. I do personal coaching and this makes a nice combination because the INTJ helps me see systems while the INFJ helps me be moer empathic. Studying personality types and understanding my type and those of others had a big impact on my life!
Howard on June 7, 2007 05:29 PM
well, im not as affectionate as i should be... and i really dont consider the emotions of others... something i wish i could change...but i love the way i am...
raquel on June 19, 2007 12:13 PM
Cool people like me : ) Though, I aint a writer or smth, I'm a fighter(boxing), competitive, luv strategy, narcissic, too focused on myself ,shy,unfriendly(No friends)... Well I just have my dreams I'll do everything to suceed . Nevertheless, I have read that we are sometimes purchasing for unrealistic stuffs... dam ouch :( Hopeful i am, like said Twista .
Tony Lee on July 11, 2007 01:33 AM
If INTJ is only 1% of the population, why are there so many people posting on this page? I don't know too many INTJ's personally, only my best friend Rebecca, and probably my dad.
Cryophytia Kryptos on July 20, 2007 04:22 PM
Hi everyone! I'm a female INTJ, which i think has made me oppress my true personality somewhat. It's a shame i've wasted so much precious time being all depressed, but i'll make up for it. I truly believe that i am God, after all ;)
Eleanor on July 26, 2007 08:34 AM
As INTJ, I live a great deal of time in my mind, forgetting there is an outside world with which I must interact. Actually, I like that about me! I love my books (librarian), my thoughts-- I'm my best buddy. Never have a problem with loneliness because I have the most interesting conversatons with myself.
Susan on July 30, 2007 12:47 PM
1% of the population, really. Well, what do you know- they all showed up. Crazy huh? Now, something isn't exactally clicking in here- brag on our uniqueness but look how far the scroll goes. Your not really alone, are you? ...Perhaps this 'test' needs some tweaking..since it's convincing so many people to fool themselves with 4 misleading letters. I'm typing this because? I think you are all very interesting and should take my advice, because it's right, and close your eyes then take a look in your mental mirror- there you will find yourself. Why would such beauty need classification?
Shantel on August 14, 2007 04:35 PM
This is the second confirmation that I am an INTJ. My first confirmation came came from a sight where I had to answer a 100 or so questions. The sight was a functional analysis copyrighted © in 1996-2005 by Marina Margaret Heiss and Joe Butt. I was skeptic but when I read it..... my jaw dropped. i had to stop and say OMG on numerous occassions. It detailed everything about my way of thinking. I kept it...if you are a true INTJ you need to read this. To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don't know. INTJs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake. INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait combination of imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause to an INFJ; both perfectionism and disregard for authority may come into play, as INTJs can be unsparing of both themselves and the others on the project. Anyone considered to be "slacking," including superiors, will lose their respect -- and will generally be made aware of this; INTJs have also been known to take it upon themselves to implement critical decisions without consulting their supervisors or co-workers. On the other hand, they do tend to be scrupulous and even-handed about recognizing the individual contributions that have gone into a project, and have a gift for seizing opportunities which others might not even notice. In the broadest terms, what INTJs "do" tends to be what they "know". Typical INTJ career choices are in the sciences and engineering, but they can be found wherever a combination of intellect and incisiveness are required (e.g., law, some areas of academia). INTJs can rise to management positions when they are willing to invest time in marketing their abilities as well as enhancing them, and (whether for the sake of ambition or the desire for privacy) many also find it useful to learn to simulate some degree of surface conformism in order to mask their inherent unconventionality. Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ's Achilles heel. While they are capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that make them so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead them in interpersonal situations. This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, they tend to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense. :-) This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete', paralleling that of many Fs -- only instead of expecting inexhaustible affection and empathy from a romantic relationship, the INTJ will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness. Probably the strongest INTJ assets in the interpersonal area are their intuitive abilities and their willingness to "work at" a relationship. Although as Ts they do not always have the kind of natural empathy that many Fs do, the Intuitive function can often act as a good substitute by synthesizing the probable meanings behind such things as tone of voice, turn of phrase, and facial expression. This ability can then be honed and directed by consistent, repeated efforts to understand and support those they care about, and those relationships which ultimately do become established with an INTJ tend to be characterized by their robustness, stability, and good communications. ________________________________________ Functional Analysis by Joe Butt Introverted iNtuition INTJs are idea people. Anything is possible; everything is negotiable. Whatever the outer circumstances, INTJs are ever perceiving inner pattern-forms and using real-world materials to operationalize them. Others may see what is and wonder why; INTJs see what might be and say "Why not?!" Paradoxes, antinomies, and other contradictory phenomena aptly express these intuitors' amusement at those whom they feel may be taking a particular view of reality too seriously. INTJs enjoy developing unique solutions to complex problems. Extraverted Thinking Thinking in this auxiliary role is a workhorse. Closure is the payoff for efforts expended. Evaluation begs diagnosis; product drives process. As they come to light, Thinking tends, protects, affirms and directs iNtuition's offspring, fully equipping them for fulfilling and useful lives. A faithful pedagogue, Thinking argues not so much on its own behalf, but in defense of its charges. And through this process these impressionable ideas take on the likeness of their master. Introverted Feeling Feeling has a modest inner room, two doors down from the Most Imminent iNtuition. It doesn't get out much, but lends its influence on behalf of causes which are Good and Worthy and Humane. We may catch a glimpse of it in the unspoken attitude of good will, or the gracious smile or nod. Some question the existence of Feeling in this type, yet its unseen balance to Thinking is a cardinal dimension in the full measure of the INTJ's soul. Extraverted Sensing Sensing serves with a good will, or not at all. As other inferior functions, it has only a rudimentary awareness of context, amount or degree. Thus INTJs sweat the details or, at times, omit them. "I've made up my mind, don't confuse me with the facts" could well have been said by an INTJ on a mission. Sensing's extraverted attitude is evident in this type's bent to savor sensations rather than to merely categorize them. Indiscretions of indulgence are likely an expression of the unconscious vengeance of the inferior. If you are not a believer after reading this...well..you did not answer the questions truthfully/honestly enought to get a true personality reading. As for Shantel, who left the message on August 14th 2007. There are numerous personalities...it is just how you are packaged. Oh and douting is an INTJ trait (especially yourself). INTJ's are smart--don't fight it! Like me coming to this site for a second opinion, I bet you went to another sight to confirm what you were told here!!LOL
Christine on August 29, 2007 06:53 PM
Shortest MBTI test ever! I started an INTJ forum in case anyone is interested in meeting other INTJs.
Jezebel on September 15, 2007 03:27 AM
Yeah, this site really doesn't make a lot of sense to me. You should maybe expand your empire and include an actual blogosphere, or something else actually useful. Oh. Obviously an INTJ. Glad the internet exists, so I have some place to openly be a self righteous asshole, rather than actually having to attend to beneficial social niceties.
Meh. on September 16, 2007 09:03 PM
Most of us aren't even INTJ's, were just somebody WITH INTJ's caracteristic's. I like strategy, to say be honest strategy is the only thing I play, my family see my as "intellegent". But I do have that "quick" reply though most times I get in trouble for that. Anyway's I like being alone nobody bother's me when I read, or think, I just ignore them. But I don't like those INTJ "careers" I wanna be an astronomer, studying the Universe, though Im just 14, Iv'e been called more genious, nore times that i can count. Guy's just keep going and study harder.
Joshua on September 19, 2007 03:02 PM
My other test that has about 150 quesstions or something like that, said that I am a mastermind. Mastermind in what? Robbing banks? *_*;; I could see why I am INTJ, but I don' t think I am 100% INTJ. I could be 100% I, and T. But not sure about the N and the J. ^_^ One point that is truely truely correct though, I use my brain more than my heart in romance. Never get into relationship because of that. Because my brain said it will be too troublesome!! Only once my brain said it was okay. I ended up married and still happily married. hahahaha GO BRAIN!
tenshi on October 17, 2007 07:39 PM
LOL, was just having a conversation with someone who insisted I was an extrovert, this proves that he was wrong! Hi everyone! Love you! Don't call me! LOL!
Beth in Michigan on October 24, 2007 03:57 PM
I've read and thought lots about the INTJ personality since I tested INTJ a few years ago. Though it also important the the probable developement path of an INTJ is to become more social and extrovert. I never went to parties before I quit high school. Now I sometimes visit parties and I'm also member of a political party. I also believe that the more introvert charachteristics become more active in small groups or when an INTJ are alone. I've become alot more extraverted among other people though iäm still introvert in small group with good friends or when at home in the weekend.
Gandalf on November 3, 2007 01:14 PM
OH SHT!! i finally found peeps like me!! INTJ`s in tha ma fkn HOUWS! contact me if ur an INTJ !! rg32024@hotmail.com
RYAN on December 7, 2007 05:16 AM
weird it seems this is now the most popular personality. Is it that intj’s are more interested in learning about them selves more than any other personality and leaving comments because they were finally understood. Or just pretending to be an intj because the mastermind title seems appealing… or just depressed and lonely at the time the test was taken? Weird…I had a hard time finding some one like me.
Leticia on December 9, 2007 10:05 PM
I am definetely an INTJ, it's not a bad thing, alot of people just don't understand us! We're cool and very creative.
lillian on December 19, 2007 12:21 PM
Actually, the dominant function of INTJ is not introverted thinking, but introverted intuition. The auxiliary function is extroverted thinking. Intoverted intuition has to do with philosophy and predicting the future, and it one of the most difficult functions to describe. We share this dominant function with INFJs. Extroverted thinking has to do with leadership in times of crisis and organizing people/things in the outside world. The term 'Mastermind' applies to the INTJ's capacity to manipulate people and to lead with ease, but with a firm grip. INTJs have one of the highest IQ scores of all the types, paired with INTPs, and therefore have a great capacity to 'figure out' abstract concepts and ideas.
Ellen on December 19, 2007 02:02 PM
M. Scott Peck (author of The Road Less Traveled), who is an INTJ as well, says that if you are bent on crushing one, convince them that they are incompetent. As an INTJ, this is SO true . . .
Ian on December 20, 2007 06:43 AM
I'm very easy to get along with.
c1040 on December 31, 2007 03:53 PM
The only reason I am posting this excerpt is to make this list of responses from all you INTJs seem longer so you all won't feel so alone...a more appropriate word actually, MISUNDERSTOOD. (We do only make up about 1.5% of the population.) I am always alone but I never feel alone. Well, to all you INTJs out there, when you feel alone remember...you're not alone.
strangle on January 4, 2008 01:49 AM
yeah..imma shy mastermind ;)
nataliet on January 11, 2008 09:27 AM
It is pretty much me in a nut shell, but i dont agree with the feelings part - yes im detached and keep my feelings to myself, but I havent always been this way! I was created by bad experiences and horrible unhealthy relationships. I didnt choose to be this way. I had to, to protect myself from others. Who knows if I might have turned out slighlty different if circumstances had been differnent. Yes, i prefer to be alone and do not like many social situations, BUT I KNOW that i have feelings. I just prefer others to not know them. And i do not appreciate or believe that i am unaware of the feelings of others.
eeh - yep im INTJ on February 16, 2008 02:15 AM
its a bit of a shame really. Not the mastermind bit. But i used to be quite a happy person. Friendly, talkative ( still am - just about .... weird things), entertaining....... then over the years.... things just changed. I am now the most melancholic person i know. Im depressed and lonely. Not that u dont have friends, I just dont respond to them anymore, and now they are slooowley putting most and more distance between us. So i am a perfect match for the intj. i just want people to realise that we wernt always like this.
rose on February 16, 2008 02:22 AM
I fit the INTJ profile. The only other profile that had a slim possibility of fitting me was the INTP....I like to plan and strategize. I set goals that I must achieve. As others have said the personality does partly come from protecting yourself..It can be lonely but I wouldnt want to be anyone different.
Mel on September 6, 2008 06:48 AM
I'm an INTJ, not surprising as I keep having the same results. thank you very much.
ice-maiden on October 5, 2008 10:45 AM
I definitely gain energy from being by myself. :)
Myers Briggs Test on October 6, 2008 06:01 PM
I am a perfectionist and i need achievement and autonomy. I'm real happy when I read the INTJ profile coz I found myself there. I was always wondering why I am totally different from people that I meet. Now I know, because I am an INTJ. Love that! :-*

INTJ pretty much fits me, i am seen as very quiet/shy which is true but mostly i cannot be bothered as there are more interesting things to be doing in the world than making idle chit chat! sorry, if that was a bit too INTJ of me! i think people nowadays place too much value on some personality traits, e.g. being socially adept, and not enough on others, e.g. rationality...

xtremegeek seems to me the person you claim to love is not an INTJ. Perhaps he is a loner sure however the things you describe throw off the hole aspect of him being an INTJ unless he used you. INTJ's are honest so if he is lying to you its only because he knows you can not accept the truth that is if he is truly an INTJ as you say. INTJ's generally don't waste there time with relationships and when they do they sure as hell do not backout unless they find they were deceived. INTJ"s are hard to deceive and for how much you tend to care for this person tells me you were no deception for him what so ever. if this person had a hard time with your relationshit and was an INTJ all it means is you were trying to hard when all he wanted was for you to be yourself just as he is. The icing on the cace can last for only so long espeshually when the INTJ can see right threw you and say to himself why waste the time on someone who is PRETENDING to love me. You really want to make him happy prove to him your not some crapy pushover who has feelings of love for him but on the otherhand hates him with out believing so unless he is not an INTJ. All you really done here is asked to be text atacked by all INTJ's or be told that your man is no INTJ

This test is pretty poor. The real test has more than 70 questions. This "lite" version just misleads people, which gives the science behind this test a bad name.

INTJ Mastermind? Fits my childhood dream of being a researcher, and my current passion to be an entrepreneur. I like being a fiercely independent thinker, and being extremely driven. I totally understand everyone who commented.. For energy, environment and economics

Yes, like every other MBTI instrument this confirms me as an INTJ. Traits? You name it, I got it. But the correlation between my "type by nature" and my "type by nurture" is much closer than is true for many respondants here. Some of them might profit from a deeper look into the MBTI model to see how more subordinate functions within a given personality type will come out under stress (or via personal growth for that matter). Some might be INTJs in truth but be stressed in other directions; some might face the reverse situation.

I have taken many different versions of this test with the same results: INTJ. I am happy, other people just need to understand us better, it would be nice anyway.
EricKa on February 1, 2009 12:07 PM
Tested as an INTJ. Read the profile - Wow, I said. This is me. My life's planned ahead two years and I've got two alternatives for each option! I'm single - but never lonely. I've got books, thoughts, plans..and if people think I'm cold or proud, who cares anyway. I now know that I'm a Mastermind! One of the 1% of special people out there!
Romayne on March 3, 2009 10:22 PM
I tried out the test 3 times and I am still who I am, INTJ. the discription is somewhat me, but I don't think that I am half as confident as what they claim INTJs are. the rest is quite accurate other than the fact that I am not as "cold" as what I am supposed to be. In fact, I get along with many people around me.
ATY on March 7, 2009 05:26 AM
Haha, that's me alright. Yeah I'm rather distant to people... except to maybe 2-3 close friends... but even w/ them sometimes the things I say are so cold =_=;;; but I'm just being logical haha... kuz I really can't wrap my mind around the irrational decisions people make.
PowersWithin on March 16, 2009 04:53 PM
I'm an INTJ too, but they got a lot of the stuff wrong in that description. MBTI INTJs operate on introverted intuition and extraverted thinking, not introverted thinking and extraverted intuition. That's the INTP. Socionics INTj uses those functions, but Socionics and MBTI are completely different.
Arkady on April 27, 2009 04:34 PM
I took the personality test when I was 13 and I took it again 5 years later and once again INTJ. I'm reading that many people here are saying that they weren't always INTJ. That isn't the case for me. I mean I only have 18 years of experience to draw from...when i read the personality description I was outright mad! "How dare someone try to describe me!" I don't ever remember being different, my personality has always been this way. I remember being six years old and telling my classmate to go somewhere else because I couldn't help him on his math problem. About the romance of an INTJ.... I just broke up with someone because he would call me all the time to tell me how his day was going. My other friends think that the reason for the breakup was unreasonable..but to me it was justifiable. I think I need to work on keeping relationships because right now I think like this: "If the relationship is destructive, cut it off." This way of thinking even extends to my own immediate family.. currently i'm not talking to my sister because she would try to use me (car rides, large sums of money, wasting my time). Does anyone have any advice for me? @ this point It is likely that I will never have a relationship with anyone :(

borderline INTP and INTJ here
miguel on June 15, 2009 01:47 AM
Good heavens--I just took the BM test and have discovered I'm an INTJ--it explains so many things--good lord we are different. Now i sort of "get it." And now I don't feel so alone. When i read of how an INTJ's mind works it fits me to a T and explains why I'm successful while having these faults that have gotten more ingrained over the years. It's like I've seen the light.....
Baynerector on June 24, 2009 09:59 AM
Well, I've taken similar tests before and they have all come out as the Rational type. At this point, I know I'm an Architect...so I guess one letter off isn't so bad. I hope I'm not repeating anyone under my post (I don't always take the time to read everything), but if you buy the book called Please Understand Me II, by David Keirsey, you'll have an easier time figuring out your exact type...since the discriptions are much better.
Sandy on August 25, 2009 02:59 PM
this is incorrect; INTJ utilizes introverted intuition and extraverted thinking. What is described is for INTP.
J on September 11, 2009 10:59 AM
i'm an INTJ!.. its a unique type of personality.. thinking outside of the box! globar thinker... globally sees the big picture... we must save the world.. its our existence of all INTJs!
jochrstphr on October 3, 2009 06:40 AM
I am definitely an INTJ. Every test tells me this. Cerebral, Individualist, Non-Conformist, Loner, Socially Awkward;Direct Wow... And I would never want to be anyone but me...
Kevin McCloskey on March 30, 2010 09:19 PM
That describes me perfectly ! I hate fashion, publicity and small talk. And I love to build realities within my mind, where I do really cool stuff, like saving the world and constructing really awesome machines.
Alexandre Dubé-Pakenham on July 13, 2010 10:39 AM
it seems to fit me very well, i also see me being an INTP kinda. but idk. im an Aquarius too. i do seem to focus on details, however depending on the situation. altho, i do seem to almost "change" personalities based on who im with. im not trying to be "accepted" or whatnot, its just how i act based on my comfort level with people and oddly, i act more open with people im not as close to. also, the more i get to know a person, the more i realize their quirks, differences, and annoyances and i want to push them away :|
brittany on July 20, 2010 05:18 PM
I am an INTJ, have taken the test many times over years with same result.. thankfully now the IntroVersion seems to go down. :-) it does fit me very well. My *shyness* is not at what it seems, I feel an inner Intellectual Superiority which hinders one to one close ties with most, so whats the point. At-times I do wish to have more friends, there is an Inability to Express Emotions ..:( which is not Lack of Emotions, but just that emotions seems a difficult topic.. other than the emotional talk inability, I am very happy being who I am, very intelligent, highly quick mind and sharp Intution. I think INTJ should put more value on INTUITION than on Thinking, now I am starting to vet my Intuitive and trust its voice. what do you other INTJs think (hahaha.. intuitively think) about it??
Aisha on October 10, 2010 06:20 AM
intp
mike on October 22, 2010 05:14 PM
This explains so much! INTJ seems like the best thing to be but that might just be because I am one. :) Maybe I can be better now at the whole feeling thing. It's nice that someone else things I'm funny to. <3
Naty Nat on November 27, 2010 01:34 PM
I am only 14 but i finally feel like i am not alone. i am terrible at conversations and dating, but its incredibly comforting to know other people are the same way. :)
mergi on January 22, 2011 07:28 PM
