    Question INTJs & burnout

    I recently read a psychology book and in the section on INTJs it indicated that INTJs are most suseptable and likely to experience 'burnout' (in the emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, cynacism sense) than any other personality type....have others experienced this?

    In every professional job i have worked in I have expereinced 'burnout', mainly due to working long and hard, but also feeling an acute sense of all the problems in the organisation and feeling somehow responsible for try to fix up the 'system' and all its ineffiencies (both human and otherwise).

    How to prevent 'burnout' and why is it prevalent amongst INTJs (we can'rt help being masterminds afterall)?

    Oh, indeed (Specifically in INTJs). How to prevent it reliably though, I'm not sure. Few jobs are awesome.

    Welcome to the Forum!
    Heh, I know what you are talking about. I have that quite often too, mostly because I am such a freaking Perfectionist and others aren't. Burns me out, because I always have to do all the Work when I want it done "right". Welcome to the Club.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O
