INTJ – The Scientists

The long-range thinking and individualistic type. They are especially good at looking at almost anything and figuring out a way of improving it – often with a highly creative and imaginative touch. They are intellectually curious and daring, but might be hesitant to try new physical and emotional experiences.

The Scientists enjoy theoretical work that allows them to use their strong minds and bold creativity. Since they tend to be so abstract and theoretical in their communication they often have a problem communicating their visions to other people and need to learn patience and use concrete examples. Since they are extremely good at concentrating they often have no trouble working alone.

They generally withhold strong emotion and do not like to waste time with what they consider irrational social rituals. This may cause non-INTJs to perceive them as distant and reserved; nevertheless, INTJs are usually very loyal partners who are prepared to commit substantial energy and time into a relationship to make it work.

Common satisfying careers: occupations within academia, research, computer programmers, system analysts, specialized consulting, engineering, management, science, and law.

Notable INTJs: Mark Zuckerberg, Jane Austen, Iscaac Newton, Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bobby Fischer, Jodie Foster, Isaac Asimov, Martin Luther, Nikola Tesla, Elon Musk and Palpatine.
