I Am An Intj

For those who were typed as INTJ via MBTI. 743 People

    I always have a hard time making friends

    because they don't communicate on my level or have the same loyalty code of ethics that I do. Somedays it's like I run on a completely different wavelength.

    Dear INTJ's, I know my "P"ness can be

    frustrating to you. It can just be too much for some of you to handle, I know. But I'm grateful that I can have your respect and appreciation for what I can do with it. I love you my fellow NT's. :-) -Zach, INT"P"

    Ive found that most people fluctuate between

    two jung types in tests. I first got an intp, then an intj- but the second test I got showed me that "j" barely won over "p". So I joined both the intp and intj groups. Both groups only make up a bit of the population, and considering how picky I am with friends, I think id...

    It's really hard for me to keep friends

    because I feel like everyone just is not at my level therefore everyone leaves me because I'm not as fun as everyone else.

    Every bit of any INTJ description I've ever

    read is me to the core. There's an ebook out there called The Secret Lives of INTJs. It explains a lot of stuff that I couldn't quite put into words.

    Fake intjs bother the hell out of me .

    Most people tend to think that it's the only smart type . A person could be from any personality type and still be very smart or smarter than an intj

    I took the MBTI personality test

    and it said that I was an INTJ. When I read the profile it was uncanny how similar it was to me. It felt like I was reading a biography about myself. I'm very glad I'm not the Only one like myself.

    of "INTJs" believe in the outdated statistic on Wikipedia to feel special, actually read about the functions, and know they are INTJ with extended information a poor online test couldn't provide.
