Illustrations of Type – INTJ

Illustrations of Type – INTJ

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction -“Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

The TJ approach used by INTJs in the outer world is clearly seen in the emphasis on quick, concise, decision-making and logical arguments and impatience for others taking too much time discussing off topic matters or building consensus.

The dominant function, Introverted Intuition (Ni) is less obvious (which makes sense, because it is an internal process), but is hinted at when they mention that they like frameworks and models.

Last week, the first page of this poster provided a succinct, tongue-in-cheek summary of how this group sees themselves.

If you are interested in more information on communicating with someone who has these preferences, check out my Is there a INTJ in your Life post.

You may also want to look at previous Illustrations of Type posts.

The INTJ tag will link you to other posts that mention this personality type pattern.
