I think I've found INTJs to be quite quirky in general, compared to the rest of the population. The hiding-in-the-cellar story is f**king hilarious, btw. I can just imagine the INTJ weirdo hanging out down there with his miner's cap on.

INXJ, have to sell his house, his agent is having another open house, and apparently the agent is not doing his job effectively, because it *shouldn't take that long, too many open houses*. Solution? Well, since it's not allowed by law, for the owner to be present during an open house, he decided he will hide out in his cellar (which apparently has great echo of the rest of the house - yes, we ran experiment to find this out) during the open house, to spy/see how the agent handles potential buyers, and issues that potential buyers have with the house. (he didn't want to spend money on rigging the house with recorders and such)
When I inquired how he'd keep himself entertained for all the hours, inside the cellar, he told me that he has one of those flashlight-headgear-thingy, and he'll read all the letters that's been piling up since he had gone on his last tour.
And, then, with a dead-pan face, asks me, "Why, too weird?"
Efficient + Direct = Best course of action
I don't understand why it would be weird. Unless, you're inferring it's negative to take illegal action.
Of course we're all quirky. Ni helps us think of things other people would never think of. The Te and unconventionality frees us to actually do it.
For instance. I like cotton socks. There are occasions where one should wear colored socks as opposed to white socks, but I've never found colored socks that are as comfortable. So I took a bag of comfortable white socks, got some RIT dye and colored them blue.
Now I have comfortable cotton blue socks. I also like bulk so I don't have to fold them together. I can just make a pile of white cotton socks (all the same type so I can grab any two), and a pile of blue cotton socks.
Efficient, comfortable, unconventional -- perhaps even quirky?
I mentioned this to an INFJ friend yesterday and she laughed very hard.
Finally a thread that helps me sort out the real INTJ's from the posers. "Quirky" is really the best way to describe an INTJ. Really when they come up with the title of those INTJ descriptions it should look like this:
The Mastermind The Visionary The Scientist
The Quirky One(Winnar!)
