    Default General Impressions of the INTJ

    (Recently, I created a similar thread on INTPc and was impressed with the grandeur of (most) of my fellows. Yet, I think familiarity with my "identity" may have distorted some of the objectivity in their responses. So, as I am only slightly better-than-invisible on this forum, I thought I would ask the same question - )


    What are your general impressions of the INTJ?

    I'm curious to hear what others may (or may not) think about INTJs.
    Double-barrel, if you like. I'd like to see how we(?) are perceived by others.

    If possible, I'll also try to explain INTJ behavior, as questions arise.


    Thoughts?

    I'd be very interested in your take on the distribution of results 7-10 in this poll. Uncharacteristically, few of the other INTJs had an opinion on it.

    Well, I would encourage a healthy skepticism towards statistical relays of data. I find that individuals tend to be a bit...permissive...in their interpretation of data as it relates to their endemic experiences. A self-fulfilling prophecy, if you like.

    That said, the poll is interesting. If I am correct, by items #7-10, you refer to the following points:

    I am not an INXJ and I find that practically all INTJs suffer from it
    I am not an INXJ and I find that 50% of INTJs or more suffer from it
    I am not an INXJ and I find that fewer than 50% of INTJs suffer from it

    Clearly, there exists a certain bias relative to Type assumption. The generalities offered by the MBTI create a landscape that can be highly subjective. That said, intimate interpretation should still be reconciled against a standard - ideally, the standard should have a practical basis to one's experience alongside empirical provisions.

    As such, if the "typical" INTJ is narrow-minded and socially flaccid, the profile will reflect this dimensionality.

    So, to be fair, I'm not entirely certain the basis for consideration (MBTI) provides a reliable plateau for informed opinions to arise.

    I can ask the voters to anecdotally describe their experiences with INTJs who suffered from closed-minded certitude if you think that will make it easier for you to try to explain the behavior?

    I've always had high standards and the only person I have met that can live up to them is my INTJ Husband. We go together like hand in glove.

    I've met one other (Husbands friend) that I know of and he is ok just highly neurotic. I think some of the posters on here who think they're INTJ are not. Night I do believe you are not one of those so you're safe

    Hehe...I think their responses are evident of the system to which they are exposed. I think further evaluation would result in a restating of this premise, followed by a recycling of output.

    Is there a specific question you'd like explained?

    There was a hidden question, but you've answered it to my satisfaction.

    Thank you.

    It might interest you to know that I began my life as an INFJ.

    Personal dynamics forced a mutation of Type in my early adult years.
