    If anyone goes out of their way to directly endanger me or anyone I deeply care for, I go on the attack. I'm very focused on reaching my goals, in every arena. Many have called my mindset relentless and aggressive. Outwardly, I'm aggressive in pursuit of girls where there's mutual interest and in sexual intimacy.

    My enneagram is equal 5w8. I think I'm an atypical INTJ.

    From the kinds of things like this I always hear about INTJ's, it proves that NT is Choleric and Keirsey was mistaken about NT being Phlegmatic. (The ENTJ also sounds like this, while in the NTP's, the Choleric is tempered by the role-informative Interaction Styles of the more open ended [N]P preference. Yet the dogged determination still does surface).

    Choleric is the temperament most associated with aggression. Then you also have the Choleric Interaction Style groups: EST and ENJ. So these types also can be pretty aggressive. With other types, aggression will be more slower or reactive.

    I'm pretty aggressive when I am in a situation I find stressful, ie in a crowd. Or obviously when I get backed into a corner and the fight or flight instinct takes over, I will opt for the fight 9 times out of 10.

    Other than that I am a pacifist.

    I don't think I can actually consider myself that aggressive.

    There may be people out there who think of me that way, but it doesn't really seem that way to me, I guess.

    I get the descriptions from posts like that, as well as from profiles.
    Since the INTJ is introverted, they will not be as aggressive as an extraverted TJ. But it's still there.

    With the INFP example given, it was reactive as I said, in contrast to the normal pacifism.
    (Is the point of the OP who is EVER aggressive; or normally? The key phrase I was focusing on was "I'm very focused on reaching my goals, in every arena. Many have called my mindset relentless and aggressive.")
