    Default Why are INTJs so enigmatic?

    I don't get what they're thinking all the time.
    They tend to be so private with their thoughts and only want to share what they want you to know and they hide the rest. They aren't transparent at all and that's what makes them so mysterious, enigmatic, and hard to figure it out.

    I often have a hard time understanding what's on their mind, but not in a frustrating kind of way, but intriguing kind of way.

    Are they? I think they are pretty straightforward albeit private. They don't enjoy being human rubiks cubes.

    I usually only talk when I have something relevant to add to a conversation. I don't like wasting words.

    But if asked, I will share what's on my mind. I just don't offer it up unsolicited.

    They're just trying to shorten the conversations with quick ambiguous answers because they're waiting for the opportunity to leave to use the bathroom.

    They have so few cookies, they only share them with special people.

    I like actual cookies because I'm basic like that

    Almost sounds like you are describing a type 5 and not an INTJ per se.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    INTJ's are so private and secretive, they only communicated with me in clicks and tapped their fingers demonstrating Morse code.

    Anyways, INTJ are normally private because they're type five. Type fives have high anxiety all the time making them hard to socialize. I remember seeing a study showing INTJ's are less likely to watch t.v at all. They must think small talk isn't worthwhile.
