As an INTJ I think I'm quite effective at playing a 'long game'. I openly admit to colleagues that people will get the better of me in the short term as I don't have the wit they have. However, I set myself medium and long term goals and doggedly work towards achieving them. I tend to do this covertly in the background, on a one-to-one level, usually winning over individuals with the power of my arguments and vision. I have effectively influenced a number of policies at work without anyone identifying them with me (this is good as some of them are quite unpopular such as including performance measures in appraisals, re-writing job descriptions for a layer of management for example). It is quite amusing as staff subsequently come to me to complain about measures they think others have introduced. However, I try to be very positive and manipulate people for the good of the organisation. I generally like to motivate others and win them over but have sometimes resorted to machiavellian tactics to undermine, discredit or worse seek to constructively dismiss people. However, if you were to ask anyone I work with, they'd say I was a nice guy
I should also say, that I almost never need to lie as I'm not very good at it. I just with-hold information.
