Well, I've done three of these, so you are on the right track . . . or am I. Does it matter?

I talked with an INTJ that teaches English at a college. He has his masters in English. It all depends on the individual.

Well, then you are pro INTJ. :)

INTJ like INTP and ENTP love Computers and Science in general but we are known as a famous science fanatics. ;)

INTJ are best in Science specifally Chemisty, INTP with philosophy but they tend to be physicist or hard-core programmers , ENTP with Computers and ENTJ with Economy :)

INTJ's can do anything as long as its theoretical or conceptual and not overly practical (inferior Se).

My INTJ dad worked for over 40 years as a legislator.

I would suppose scientist or doctor. Being a lawyer could also work well.

Most of I have known have been in computer science, military strategy or finance. Scientific research would probably also be a good fit.

By default yes. But when they can balance with Se, they can also be practical. However, not all theoretical work. Only with mathematical, psychological/spiritual. They can perform as a professor of mathematics also, but ENTJ should be better, because professors are obliged not only to teach, they also perform service to their student like giving examination.

I happen to have come across this list yesterday and had to laugh because it was so long. I don't think I'd want to be a building inspector but I have done a few of these things, have thought about doing many others, and could do many more. From that perspective, it seems like a decent list.

Why only mathematical, psychological/spiritual ? My dad is a 70 year old INTJ and he gives guided city tours with emphasis on history, now that he's retired. He's pretty good and passionate about it. He was a law maker in his carreer at the ministry of employment. I think you're selling yourself or INTJs in general short ;) I supose every job or career has aspects that aren't necessarily a perfect match.

I should have supported it with some data that all INTJ would have only successful career as a mathematicians and psychologist. Unfortunately I didn't have the data. So you may regard it as an empirically unsupported opinion, that deserves a scientific doubt. It is interesting to note that your fathers career, although I may not agree with your identification.

You may imply that I was referring to myself. I realize that even if I identified myself correctly as the type, it would not follow, that what I say about the suitable job is also correct. Even if the person correctly identified himself as his type, He/She, might not be correctly identify his best suited jobs either, nor he could be correctly assigned to his best suited job. There are many external factors that we should have considered influential to the conditions that a person is assigned to his best suited career. The person may be assigned to the job that is not the best fit for himself although in fact he was successfully offered the job and eventually accept it.

I suppose every job or career has aspects that aren't necessarily a perfect match.
Yeah, I agree with you. But personally I have concern the best fit, that being assigned to a job, will not be harmful at least for me. One of The best job for a theoretical person like INTJ is arguably an academic position.

I'm a maths major, with an interest in typology and other aspects of psychology. Spirituality is of course above both.

And guess what... I'm an INFJ, not an INTJ. I doubt that INTJ would be as you described. Ti, maths, Fe, psychology. INTJs are good with technology, like computer science and designing nanobots. I'm not sure where Ni-Fi is utilised, but it sounds like an artistic and spiritualesque combination, though I don't know of the actual presence of INTJs in that sort of area.
