INTJ Personality Type
The Mastermind

The INTJ personality type is known as “The Mastermind.”

INTJs, as introverts, are quiet, reserved, and comfortable being alone. They are usually self-sufficient and would rather work alone than in a group. Socializing drains an introvert’s energy, causing them to need to recharge.
INTJs are interested in ideas and theories. When observing the world they are always questioning why things happen the way they do. They excel at developing plans and strategies, and don’t like uncertainty. They are insightful and quick to understand new ideas. They value intelligence, knowledge, and competence.

The Intuitive and Thinking traits form the core of the INTJ personality type, making them highly intelligent, open-minded and utilitarian individuals, capable of amazing intellectual feats, especially in scientific or technological fields. People with this personality type tend to firmly believe that they are intelligent and capable of many things. Their quick and versatile minds allow them to enjoy intellectual challenges and they will feel bored when not intellectually stimulated.

INTJs are ambitious, self-confident, deliberate, long-range thinkers. Typical INTJ career choices are in the sciences and engineering, and some find enough challenge within the business world in areas which involve organizing and strategic planning.

Others may falsely perceive the INTJ as being rigid and set in their ways. Nothing could be further from the truth, because the INTJ is committed to always finding the objective best strategy to implement their ideas.

People with the INTJ personality type are ruthless when it comes to analyzing the usefulness of methods or ideas. While some other types would happily accept the argument that things have always been done in this way, INTJs would question and challenge the existing procedures. This makes them efficient and impartial decision-makers, often at a very young age.

INTJs are usually brutally honest, direct and rational. They will say what they really think and give solutions that they believe are right, without sugarcoating their words. They rely on their head rather than their heart, and they tend to suppress or safeguard their emotions.

Many INTJs are likely to have difficulties dealing with anything that does not require logical reasoning and this weakness is especially visible in interpersonal relationships. INTJs find it very difficult to handle romantic relationships, especially in their earliest stages.

INTJs are certainly capable of caring deeply for others, but they only bestow that care on a select few. They are willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship that they consider worthwhile. They prefer to develop a few significant friendships rather than a large group of acquaintances.

INTJs are likely to be in positive, healthy relationships because they’re likely to leave relationships that don’t work for them. INTJs believe in constant growth in relationships. The INTJ’s strongest interpersonal assets are their intuitive abilities and willingness to work at a relationship.
