Within the course of my life I've learned many skills, physical, mental, etc.. Physical skills like walking, playing soccer, riding a bike, dancing, running, and so forth. None of these ever came very naturally to me, I even taught myself to have greater balance. Now a days, after time and effort if put into it, they're 2nd nature. I still use a little conscience effort in order to perform them.
Mental skills like, Math, reading, writing, and so forth. Most of which I don't put forth too much energy to do.
What I never had to learn, nor sit around and figure out, is how to come up with a plan of action. It's always come natural to me. It's the only thing that's come natural to me, aside from breathing or something that's natural for nearly everyone.
Of the INTJ's I know personally, planning is something they naturally do as well. So, now, I am doing research online. Is this just the ones I know, or is it most INTJ's?
What are the natural abilities of other types?
A better description of INTJ planning as a natural ability is: The ability to think of ways to get to an end and know a proficient order for the means to get to that end.... Okay, not the greatest description.
