    My INTJ friend and I have a great strategy. We ask each other! Seriously, though, INTJs like practical things, they have no use for pretty baubles. In my experience, books from their field of expertise are highly appreciated (or else fiction that you know they like and don't yet have). Practicality, that's the one.

    Your best bet is finding out what they meant to buy for themselves and then getting it before they have the chance to. Someone said that before, but yeah, that's about right.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    This. It's not that hard, really.

    So many awesome ideas! I'm putting together a list of future gift ideas for my INTJ hubby. I know the majority of his passions which helps in picking out a personalized gift idea, but if its some thing he already wants, i usually dont get it because:

    A) he buys every thing he wants himself because its...logical
    B) when he doesnt, i always buy the wrong model, version, type, whatever

    thanks for all the help though!

    World domination.

    So get him a supersecret underground base, nuclear weapons and his own private army of ninjas.

    I like consumables; food, chocolate, wine, whiskey, etc.

    Practical things are good, too.

    I don't novelty things. They take up space and are hard to get rid of.

    Complaining about a gift is poor form in my opinion. At worst the gift is useless, there's no need to complain about it.

    If I am given something I do not like or cannot use (a frequent occurrence), I pass it on to someone else, so at least it does not go to waste.

    I am not an INTJ, but if I was, I think I would ADORE a new pair of socks.

    Nah. It's too time-consuming for a game, I have better things to do.

    Exactly! No useless decoration, and no surprises if possible.

    Yes, something practical and functional is ideal, or informative and enjoyable like a book or CD. It's hard to miss if someone gets me something I have made clear that I would like. On the other hand, nothing compares with a surprise when someone puts the thought and effort into getting it right. It shows me that the giver really cares about me, and understands me. Alas, this is quite rare.
