1. Depends upon the circumstances. If I have pertinent ideas or questions, I share them; otherwise I listen. One thing I do not like is to be in charge of the meeting, and to have to tease input out of the truly shy, or the marginally engaged. Occasionally I am bored out of my skull, the meeting is pointless and irrelevant, and I make notes on my notepad about entirely unrelated matters.INTJs:
1. In a conference/meeting with many people - would you be the person actively participating and sharing your thoughts, or passively listening and taking in all the information?
2. Are you more comfortable with small-talk? Or getting into a deep conversation with one person you really know?
3. When working with other people - do you stick firmly with your principles, or become flexible and reasonable to accommodate others suggestions?
4. When you spend a lot of time alone or in your head - are you perfectly OKAY with that? Or are you craving and itching to find someone to share your thoughts with?
2. I despise small talk. Utilitarian conversations are necessary, and hopefully brief. Deep conversations are the ones that are truly worthwhile, and a joy to partake in.
3. I am much more willing to compromise on action and implementation than on ideas and values. In other words, I may still think my idea is best, but will go along with a second-best idea in the interests of getting things done. Of course, I may later try to steer the situation back in my original direction.
4. I have yet to spend so much time alone that I am itching for company. Occasionally, I have the desire to share specific thoughts with a specific person, especially if it relates to a recent discussion or ongoing collaboration.
