The differences between the INFJ and INTJ personality types come down to their cognitive functions.
Exercising your “aspirational function” brings great satisfaction and even breakthroughs. For INTJs and INFJs, that function is Extroverted Sensing.
What you’ll notice first about an INTJ is his or her data-driven mind.
“Thinking” personalities make decisions based on logic. Often, people wrongly assume that thinkers are cold, robotic, and void of emotion.
INTJs: the robot. The mastermind. Always in control of ourselves and, supposedly, our world — which should include our desks, right?
ISTJ Sarah likes to stick to established rules or processes, whereas INTJ Nicole learns about established systems to work to improve them.
INTJs are complicated people who have many layers, and we can be full of contradictions. How do you know if you’re truly an INTJ personality type?
What I do understand, however, is that despite some similarities in our approach to life, you see the world in a unique way.
I’m a huge fan of Myers-Briggs personality types, but I come in contact with a lot of MBTI fans, and sometimes, what I see worries me.
I can’t help but fear that the constant villainization of the INTJ personality type will only cause further misunderstanding of real-life INTJs.
