More about INTJ's (Insider Bonus Material)
Because I am an INTJ myself, I've done a bit more research and writing on the INTJ so I've pasted one of my older writeups below.
Introvert, iNtuitive, Thinking, and Judging are the four preferences that represent my MBTI Type. INTJs are one of the rarest Type profiles, making up 1.8 - 2% of the US population. Female INTJs are even rarer, reported as low as 0.005% but no higher than 0.08%.
INTJ frequently have to work deliberately to overcome the unflattering characteristics that are natural to their type and female INTJs often feel like they are "swimming up stream" against societies norms and expectations of what women "should" be.
The INTJ is typically characterized as the Strategists, the Rationals, the Free Thinkers, the Masterminds as well as being analytical and highly independent.
Some well known INTJ's are C.S. Lewis, General Colin Powell, Michelle Obama, Susan B. Anthony, Thomas Jefferson and Sir Isaac Newton. On the fictional front, the INTJ type has been assigned to such characters as Mr. Spock, Dr. Gregory House and Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper.
Interestingly, INTJ's are the least likely of all 16 types to believe in a higher power of any kind - nice to know I've beaten the odds!
As described by The Myers & Briggs Foundation, INTJ's have original minds and great drive for implementing their ideas and achieving their goals. Quickly see patterns in external events and develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance – for themselves and others.
INTJs are introspective, analytical, determined persons with natural leadership ability. Being reserved, they prefer to stay in the background while leading. Strategic, knowledgable and adaptable, INTJs are talented in bringing ideas from conception to reality. They expect perfection from themselves as well as others and are comfortable with the leadership of another so long as they are competent. INTJs can also be described as decisive, open-minded, self-confident, attentive, theoretical and pragmatic.
