INTJs are analytical problem-solvers, eager
to improve systems and processes with their innovative ideas. They have a talent for seeing
possibilities for improvement, whether at work, at home, or in themselves.
Often intellectual, INTJs enjoy logical reasoning and complex problem-solving. They approach
life by analyzing the theory behind what they see, and are typically focused inward, on
their own thoughtful study of the world around them. INTJs are drawn to logical systems and
are much less comfortable with the unpredictable nature of other people and their emotions.
They are typically independent and selective about their relationships, preferring to associate
with people who they find intellectually stimulating. INTJ AT WORK
At work, the INTJ excels at creating and implementing innovative solutions to analytical problems.
They naturally see possibilities for improvement within complex systems and are organized and
determined in implementing their ideas for change.
INTJs are comfortable with abstraction and theory but gain the most satisfaction from
turning their ideas into reality. They often enjoy working independently or with a small
team, taking measured, strategic steps to implement change.
INTJs enjoy working with logical systems that they can understand in depth. They enjoy the
challenge of comprehending complex ideas, and want to understand how they can improve
the way things work. The ideal work environment for an INTJ is
logical, efficient, structured, and analytical, with colleagues that are competent, intelligent,
and productive. The ideal job for a Mastermind allows them to use their analytical skills
to problem-solve in a challenging environment, and to take responsibility for implementing
their ideas to create efficient, innovative systems. INTJS AS PARTNERS
In relationships, the INTJ is loyal but independent. INTJs can be almost scientific in choosing
a mate and make devoted partners once they have found a match that fits their rigorous
list of requirements. They often have clear ideas about what makes for a solid relationship
and are unwavering in their pursuit of this ideal.
INTJs often have a passion for self-improvement and are encouraging of their partners’ goals
and intellectual pursuits. However, they do not usually see the need for frivolous affection
or romance, feeling that their devotion should be evident. They are more focused on serving
their partners with hard work and resourceful problem-solving than they are on showering
them with attention. INTJs’ partners often find them difficult
to read, and indeed they do not show emotion easily; they find the process of discussing
emotions much too messy and disorganized. They enjoy solving difficult problems, but
are often out of their depth when it comes to illogical, unpredictable personal issues.
INTJs value a partner that allows them the independence to achieve their goals, and one
who appreciates their efficacy, insight, and ability to offer creative solutions to problems.
