INTJ – Who are they?

I was looking through some random blogs and came across a blog focused on INTJ individuals. I had never heard of it. My first thought was that it had something to do with the LBGTQ population. Well, I was wrong and I may fall into the INTJ category.

INTJ = Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging

I checked out this website https://www.personalitypage.com/html/INTJ.html and it seems possible that I fit many of the “qualifications”. If you know more about this, please fill me in. I am thinking right now that it is a group that you can fit yourself into if you choose to do so. That being said, not everyone belongs there.

Then I stumbled on this website https://www.truity.com/personality-type/INTJ and it has 16 combinations of personality traits. There is a quiz, I am assuming to see which category one would best fit. With a closer look there are actually 5+ tests you can take. I guess that would really narrow things down.

Let’s see what it’s like…..

The Typefinder Personality Test – Myers and Briggs: https://www.truity.com/test/type-finder-personality-test-new

ENFJ – The Teacher 

VERY GOOD MATCH 

ENFJs are idealist organizers, driven to implement their vision of what is best for humanity. They often act as catalysts for human growth because of their ability to see potential in other people and their charisma in leading others. 

The Big Five Personality Test

Two 
95% MATCH 
Type 2 can be described as The Giver. Twos want to be liked and find ways that they can be helpful to others so that they can be loved and belong. 

Type Finder for Career Planning

So now you know what kind of person I am! All of the tests only show partial results, they want you to pay for the full report. I don’t know if it is one price per test or if it is one price for all tests.

Have fun!

    Dear Christine. So nice that you found me at Ironwoodwind. It is nice to be followed by a person of depth and substance. I found this article by you first and will be exploring the links you included. I believe I’m an INTJ though I have to retake the test to see. I’m looking forward to exploring your blog. How did you find me? I’m curious because I cannot imagine anyone finding their way to such an obscure blog as mine. Did you use search engine tags, etc.? In any event, thank you for reaching out and following Ironwoodwind. Enjoy the days. Cheers, Doug

      To be completely honest, as I read blogs I go to other blogs from the comments on that page. It helps to broaden the group of viewers. Other times I have searched blogs that have something in common with mine, or something I am looking to learn about. I can try to narrow it down more to find exactly how I found you but I have realized by doing this I found 1000’s of blogs I would never have known existed. I found a few I wish I didn’t know existed, Lol! Anyhow, thanks for stopping by and I hope we find more in common.

        Hi Christine,

        I apologise for not getting to this reply sooner. Up to my ears in alligators here and only got the swamp drained in the last few days. i hope we find more in common also. You seem like a wonderful person with a probing intellect. A rare combination. Cheers, Doug

    Many of the agencies in the US government like the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory and I have taken it a number of different times and gotten consistent results, which show me as an INFP. I think that these kinds of general indicators are good, but sometimes people go a little crazy in trying to analyze results and put people into nice neat boxes. A lot of this is about preferences and tendencies, and many times we act against those tendencies and do things that go against our preferences for a whole range of reasons. One other thing that is really important is to understand the definitions used for Myers Briggs. For example, the first letter is either I for Introvert or E for Extrovert. A lot of people make the mistake of conflating this with social skills or the public speaking–e.g. they assume that if you have social skills or skill in public speaking, you must be an extrovert. Not true. Myers Briggs defines this category more as being related to the source of your energy, so it’s more about whether you recharge your energy more by being by yourself or by being with others. When people observe me, they assume that I am an extrovert, because I am outgoing and am ostensibly comfortable being on a stage. However, most people don’t know that such interactions wear me out and that I need a significant amount of “me” time, so from a Myers Briggs point of view, I am clearly an introvert. Sorry I went off on a tangent, but I was prompted to do so by your posting and by some of the comments by others.
