  • You have strong preference of Judging over Perceiving (89%)


By judging they mean the way I orientate myself to the external world. Judgment preferred to perception. INTJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability, which to perceptive types may seem limiting. I sought clarification about that.
I took this test when I started college back in the day. I believe it was rather similar if not the same.
This what the site that explained it (Wikipedia) had to say:
"INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake ... INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait of combining imagination and reliability. Whatever system an INTJ happens to be working on is for them the equivalent of a moral cause; both perfectionism and disregard for authority come into play. Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be the INTJ's Achilles heel ... This happens in part because many INTJs do not readily grasp the social rituals ... Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that INTJs really want people to make sense."
I don't know I agree with all of it, but most of does describe the way that I think and feel. I try very hard to understand "correct" social behavior but I never seem to get it. I have never understood people and so wish that I did. I am also a perfectionist, especially in regard to myself. However, even if I don't like or respect my boss I will still do what I am supposed to.
