INTJ Study Notes

INTJ Study Notes

By Donna Dunning

During one of my MBTI® Certification workshops I noticed a participant taking detailed notes in an interesting way.

The participant agreed to let me post a sample page of his notes so others can get a glimpse into his mental processing. He made several such pages during the four-day workshop.

The content depicted here was not introduced in this manner. I introduced type dynamics first, then development, and then the stress response.

His study notes show how he interprets and integrates information using his dominant function of Introverted Intuition (Ni).

I use the term Visionary to describe people that, as their core approach, take in and integrate information deeply and conceptually.

Many thanks go to my participant for sharing his notes. I appreciate examples like this that show us the integrative process that is most often used in the inner world for someone who prefers INTJ.

I will share another page soon where he summarizes the topic of using personality type at work.

    That’s really cool. I did something similar when I was in grad school. Usually, it wasn’t quite so neatly organized, but my notebooks would generally consist of diagrams or even cartoons inserted among many pages of scribbled notes, some of which were information from lecture and some of which were my own mental tangents and questions. I find it easier to do when I’m reading than when I’m listening to a lecture though. When I’m reading complex material or trying to sort through an idea, I’ll frequently draw a diagram or image to process what I’m thinking.

    Hi Donna,
    Wonderful example. I have tried to explain the different manners of processing information by the different types in my book and found the Ni dominant the most difficult to do, so I resorted to referencing a wonderful description Jung makes in his 1923 “Psychological Types” at page 568.

  3. This is a really interesting approach to the dominant function of Introverted Intuition. I’m an INTJ and have occasionally created diagrams when taking notes. Perhaps I should do this more often. He covers all the material very well.
