    Default Common INTJ Issues

    A lot of issues that INTJs have relate to Ni taking an overly dominant role in their personality. Some examples of this:

    Don't listen to other perspectives - At times, the INTJ can quickly dismiss things that others might say and have a tendency to come across like they think they are always right. Even if they do listen, they may not come across like they are. The explanation for much of this is that the INTJ can use Te to cut off new information rather than the more productive use of Te, which is to judge their insights against the external world.

    Overly critical - INTJs are prone to finding fault in things and situations to an excessive degree. They can tend to blame others for things that go wrong or apply judgement towards others rather than themselves.

    Don't know know how they come across to others - INTJs, especially when young can be pretty oblivious as to how they come across to other people.

    Unrealistic expectations - INTJs can have excessive expectations of others as well as themselves. Nobody measures up.

    Hard time communicating - They can have difficulty communicating what is in their mind to others. Sometimes, they are vague and cannot easily express the reasons for the way they thing.

    Occasional indecision - Though this is not usually a problem, at times the INTJ can be overwhelmed by all of the different pieces of information, scenarios and sides of an issue making it difficult to reach a decision.


    Edit: So, a lot of this is standard INTJ profile stuff. Do you agree with this? Do you see other issues? The thread is targeted at both INTJs and non-INTJs to comment on.

    I'm sure the non-INTJs should have plenty to say.

    What prompted you to open this thread? Your post is mostly a redescription of the standard INTJ profile.

    Have found that INTJs are REALLY good at reading intentions of others' actions but aren't good at READING the feelings of others. (Am I being rude etc?) A common INTJ issue this is? Not sure. I find them generally to be concerned not to hurt others intentionally though.

    Also as Nico the Visigoth said, this seems to be a standard INTJ description thread.

    Maybe @highlander you should ask other INTJs to include issues they believe they posses which they have realized?

    It depends on the INTJ. Some INTJs are so mature and balanced and full of pertinent information and insights, and others are convinced that the mother ship will land any day now, and that nothing that I know nor am good at measures up to their superior (but oblivious) preferences for thought.

    I find that I really like INTJ wimminz, even, like on another forum I noticed that a couple of the females I converse with regularly are INTJs.

    I don't know if it's my function order or what, but I find xNTJs in general to be very extreme, like I love them or hate them. I have very strong reactions to xNTJs for good or ill.

    But anyway, sometimes they have really good insights into other people, and sometimes they are having Ni/Fi tunnel vision with Te oversimplification, and they are so used to being "right" that they can't see how wrong they are, or what they're missing,%

    Read that initially as 'wizards'. Rather disappointed.

    Are you trying to demonstrate INTJs being over critical?

    I guess its the indirect attempt to talk about what the problems are for intjs and for starters the general profile is quoted so one doesnt take side too much.

    I guess he wanted a sticky thread.
    Within a year, he'll be called a visionary.
    Legions of confused ENFPs will thank him for all the gathered knowledge.
    Legions of INTJs will deny that they fit the description.
    But, for now, we can call the thread useless/dumb.
