    RE: So, what is your Personality Type?

    What it means to be me, an INTJ.....

    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.

    RE: So, what is your Personality Type?

    Thanks to all of you for your continued additions to this informal experiment/data-gathering exercise. I doubt anything like it has been attempted before, so with more participation this could be of significant value to us all. Please don't be shy, my aim is not to pick your brain apart; just to amass enough information to posit a hypothesis or two which could help us understand our own love as well as the triggers which guide the parallel interests of others in this realm.

    ORIGINAL: Wangan

    Actually it said INFJ,the protector,which I dont believe.[8|]
    From wikipedia:

    "INFJs tend to be sensitive, quiet leaders with a great depth of personality. They are intricately and deeply woven, mysterious, and highly complex, sometimes puzzling even to themselves. They have an orderly view toward the world, but are internally arranged in a complex way that only they can understand. Abstract in communicating, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. With a natural affinity for art, INFJs tend to be creative and easily inspired.[16] Yet they may also do well in the sciences, aided by their intuition"

    Affinity for art, like your music? Care for family? Puzzling to yourself? Seems to fit, but that by no means that you aren't highly developed in other areas, and wouldn't obtain different results at another time or using another test. It doesn't define you, rather, you alone define yourself. This informal experiment is just for general informational purposes.

    RE: So, what is your Personality Type?

    On a whim and with a fresh chaw between check and gum I decided to allow you all into the innermost sanctum. I have had these tests before thanks to the V.A. and sundry animal experimenters along the sodden line delving into my cranial catbox. The results? ENFJ. Intellectually I score on recent neuropsychological tests to be in the 99th percentile in communication skills despite the litterbox sustaining cracks from the merrymakers school of hard knocks. The neurosurgeon said I had the thickest skull he's ever cut into and immediately placed me on grand rounds. Thanks Texas Jack.

    Vocationally, the tests (all 12 hours of them) indicated I'd be best as a journalist, attorney, or hitman. I've successfully undertaken all three professionally and garnered my fare share of detractors along the way. A teacher? Ferchrissakes! Pendantry, perhaps. Most certainly I pride myself on my rarified ability to lead persons into the dankest recesses of perdition all-the-while singing my lilting swan-song of stultifying snobbishness.

    Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
