Yes! Intj

So I took the official test, and it was just as I had thought. INTJ. What I find of the architype true of myself... almost all of it. It's not enough to collect knowledge, it's fun to apply it. I like to make plans, contingency plans, plans A, B, C, flexible plans meant to be broken. I respect authority only in I deem them competent. If not, I don't respect rank, title, etc. I'm not a very emotional person, and I like to keep my head in the drivers seat, not my heart.

The only thing I found a bit wonky is that it seems generally said that INTJ's are scientist or engineer types. I couldn't be further from this, I'm an artist and am *terrible* at math or anything related. Just because I like to apply a scientific outlook to my life, doesn't mean I literally want to be a scientist.

I just read a good book that breaks it down even further, but in a more general way. Has anyone ever read Please Understand Me? In that book I was typed into the NT group, and would guess many INTJs would fit here as well.

MBTI is a fun test, and you can really learn a lot about yourself and other people!

We share intuition. I'm an ENFP. I find the MBTI to be very interesting and the results seem to match me well.

I'm an INTJ as well. And though I am very rational, I'm very creative. I write music and play a few instruments. I've also read Please Understand Me, and I found it very helpful in understanding myself. Knowledge is power.

You're a graphical engineer. ;) I'm INTP myself. Same as you except collecting data IS enough... just gotta keep doing it nonstop.

You do know that INTPs and INTJs have zero cognitive functions in common?

You don't have to be a scientist to apply it to everyday life.

For me it`s also exciting reading, despite it tells you what you are. More important is informing you about other types and how spread they are. I.e. I thought I`m nice, but I now consider what if I am too sarcastic or uninterested?

INTJ's are smart in an an applied way that is quite rare. This is funny to me, but about 10 years ago I was an INTJ (with a split on the I/E part). Currently I'm an ENFP. I think it's fun to take the test at different stages of your life...just to see. I couldn't agree with you more about the anomaly of INTJ's being mostly scientists as I have always been an artist. Although the authority figure part you mentioned...if we don't deem them as such...SO TRUE! Although, I still feel that way. A title or a rank means nothing to me if I don't deem it so.

I remember that test. It is fun, but useless. It tells you what you already know. But it is fun, and more scientifically plausible than horoscopes.

I was an xntj. I was 50/50 split on the intro extrovert questions.

Make your friends take the test.
