    Default INTJ 8's?

    Do you actually exist? or are you all mistyped ENTJ's?

    I've met plenty of INTJ 3's and a couple of 1's, but I don't think I've met an 8. Then again, I've met a couple INFJ 8's, so I suppose Ni dominance is possible.

    Ideas?

    They definitely exist. I live with one. She's an INTJ 8w7.

    She is definitely more social than most of the introverts I know, and I have often wondered if she is actually an extrovert. But, she insists she is an introvert... I suppose she does like a good amount of alone time, but she also loves being around people. I'm pretty sure she is an INTJ, it fits her better than ENTJ.

    my best friend is INTJ 8w7 Sp/Sx (we considered both ENTJ and 5 for him for awhile, but neither seemed to work as well)

    other than that, most of the INTJ 8s I can think of are fictional

    Well plenty of dictators have been this combo. Moammar Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein both readily come to mind, but I'm sure there have been many others.

    I see no reason why it wouldn't be possible, theoretically speaking.

    They appear to be few and far between. Of the INTJ 8s observed online, they're come across as mistyped ENTJs. Te isn't necessarily social although it can be, if there's a goal in mind.

    I've worked with a couple. They definitely exist.

    Something about that chart... seems off. Where'd you get it? I see zarathustra made it. Are those forum statistics?

    You'd have to ask @Zarathustra

    Yes they exist. I've been working with one for the last year.

    Hello

    Not an ENTJ but thought I was for a good portion of my life. My father typed me as INTP when I was younger, then I self-typed as ENTJ when I rediscovered Myers-Briggs. I've also considered ENTP for a good amount of time, for some reason I always overlooked INTJ.

    ENTJ never quite fit for me because although I can be outspoken and direct, and am a results-oriented all-business person when a task is at hand, that's only in work scenarios -- in life as a whole my focal point is more abstract and removed.

    Thought I was ENTP for a while because I knew I was a perceiver -- I take in information readily and put off judgment until later, I've known that my entire life -- but I just recently learned that INTJs are actually perceivers too, and then it all came together.

    I've got to be the laziest, least 'on top of things' J in existence xD
