Are you an INTJ?
If you are an INTJ, you will relate to all of the following traits:
- 1. A Highly Sensitive nature
You are easily overwhelmed by the real world, and find it most recharging to be inside your own head. You are trying to learn to put yourself out there without becoming stressed.
- 2. An eye for intensity
The INTJ Personality Type takes nothing lightly, and is known to be a deep sea diver. You are not satisfied with just the quick summary or simple one-liner. You want to understand things fully and completely.
- 3. A dislike for distractions
The INTJ Personality Type prefers focus and mental discipline. You train your thoughts and your thinking. You dislike being interrupted in the middle of your thought process and like to tune out distractions when possible.
- 4. A Sharp Mind
The INTJ Personality Type always carries a sharp mind with them. You are always learning and practising and polishing your thoughts to make sure that you are as accurate as possible.
- 5. Everything goes in a system
You need all information to be internally consistent and coherent. You systemize information using visual tables, graphs, and illustrations to make sure that all relationships and rules are clear and applied correctly.
- 6. You question and criticize
When there is conflict or discord, you try to see who objectively did the wrong thing. You seek justice and for people to follow the rules.
- 7. You predict the future
INTJs try to make sure that their system and data can be used to predict future events. You use either consciously or unconsciously, the experience and knowledge you have gained to come to an understanding about what will happen next.
- 8. Stoic temperament
INTJs do not show their feelings to the outer world. If you are upset, you are more likely to withdraw than talk about it. The INTJ approach is to accept whatever happens and to put on a strong and positive approach. You don't let anything get you down.
- 9. Logical imagination
The INTJs have a big imagination, but everything you imagine has to make sense somehow. While the logic is your own, and often messy, there's an explanation for anything crazy happening inside.
- 10. Nervous disposition
The INTJ is notoriously easily startled and sensitive to sudden sounds and sensations. If things happen that are outside what the INTJ expects, they may become nervous or rattled.
