The first function of INTJ is introverted intuition . His second function is extraverted thinking.

In addition to the INFJ, the INTJ is one of the rarest of the 16 types. This applies even more to female INTJs, whose population incidence amounts to about 1%.

INTJs are independent free spirits. They are full of ideas and visions. It is easy for them to identify these underlying patterns behind a multitude of seemingly disjointed information and to derive far-reaching predictions about the development of events. They are interested in understanding the world and its guiding principles. Their dominant function – introverted intuition – provides them with a wealth of information from which to develop their ideas and deep insights into the principles of the world. Comparable to the INFJIt allows intuition to better access the unconscious contents of memory. It is often difficult for young INTJs to realize that other people can not easily follow their insights.

While an INFJ is particularly susceptible to the emotional states of its fellows because of its externalized emotional function, the focus of INTJ is on the generally accepted knowledge of its community due to extraverted thinking. He likes to analyze complex issues and is able to perceive a problem from very different perspectives.

INTJs are masters at pinpointing the information most people miss, but disregarding it affects the effectiveness of our day-to-day operations. They intuitively notice if a system that exists in the outside world has vulnerabilities, and they are interested in eliminating those vulnerabilities to make the system more efficient. INTJs discover these vulnerabilities by questioning those generally accepted assumptions that can not be reconciled with their personal experiences and intuitively gained insights.

(Explanation: Generally accepted knowledge is the knowledge that a community believes to be true, and whose knowledge and consideration by its members in general can be expected.) It facilitates communication between the members of a community and helps us cope with everyday life Unusual, if we can use the experiences of others instead of having to find out all by ourselves Examples of such general knowledge: Water usually freezes at 0 degrees C. Fly agaric are poisonous.The year has about 365 days.If I plug into the socket, there is the Danger of electric shock.Such claims are usually rarely questioned but assumed to be true. This objective knowledge of a society is largely taught at school or passed on from generation to generation. It flows into the methods and procedures that a community teaches its members to achieve specific goals. Also, bids and prohibitions are based on such standard assumptions, and we mostly trust that their underlying assumptions are valid. Occasionally, new findings lead to the abolition of such precepts and prohibitions.Thus, for example, only a few parents feel contented to make their children spinach, after further research showed that spinach contains significantly less iron than originally thought and the abundant in spinach oxalic acid even hinders the utilization of iron. )

INTJs like to check such generally accepted assumptions and in particular the resulting instructions (rules) for their authorization. Practical applicability in the outside world is one of its most important criteria. If an established rule does not appear to be suitable for its intended purpose, INTJ’s view is more than questionable. However, INTJs do not stick to individual rules but consider them in conjunction with other rules and factors that underlie external systems. When an existing rule interferes with the functioning of a system or even jeopardizes the very purpose of the system itself, they notice it quite quickly and often consider it a challenge to to deal with the individual components of this rule, which contradicts the whole system, in order to discover the weak point. In this process, they are also ready to revise their previous idea of the functional principles of a system, if this leads to a coherent integration of conflicting information and an improvement of the system is to be expected.

In order to reconcile their own perception of the world with their surrounding reality, INTJs are forced to point out the society in which they live, the inconsistency of their basic assumptions and the inadequacy of existing systems. While INFJs are committed to supporting other people, realizing their true needs, and willingly contributing to their fulfillment, INTJs are forced to put their rightly recognized system on the outside world. For both types, outwardly bearing their inner visions is a challenge and both find it difficult to make their intuitive insights understandable to other people.

INTJs are interested in using their knowledge because of their second function, extraverted thinking. Here they differ significantly from the INTP. At first glance, both types seem to resemble each other. They differ, however, in terms of the motivation for their acquisition of knowledge. The knowledge of the INTP serves this rather for the own understanding of the world. In the process, the INTP is mostly interested in the concrete applicability in the outside world but is rather a by-product of its knowledge acquisition. The INTJ, on the other hand, has an inner need to carry its knowledge out into the world. In contrast to the INTP, the penetration of matter is not an end in itself but always takes place with a view to the practical use of the knowledge gained from it. The INTJ is happy to provide a method their effectiveness is not clarified, as long as it produces the desired results and other methods are not apparent. He likes to regard the successes as an indication of the effectiveness of the method. He tacitly assumes that sooner or later an explanation of the exact connections can be found. In this way, an INTJ can even side by side seemingly contradictory assumptions. Many INTJs are looking for higher-level laws that consolidate such contradictions. However, they have fewer scruples than INTPs to leave the question of the effectiveness of the method, if necessary, unresolved and to live with the apparent contradictions. He likes to regard the successes as an indication of the effectiveness of the method. He tacitly assumes that sooner or later an explanation of the exact connections can be found. In this way, an INTJ can even side by side seemingly contradictory assumptions. Many INTJs are looking for higher-level laws that consolidate such contradictions. However, they have fewer scruples than INTPs to leave the question of the effectiveness of the method, if necessary, unresolved and to live with the apparent contradictions. He likes to regard the successes as an indication of the effectiveness of the method. He tacitly assumes that sooner or later an explanation of the exact connections can be found. In this way, an INTJ can even side by side seemingly contradictory assumptions. Many INTJs are looking for higher-level laws that consolidate such contradictions. However, they have fewer scruples than INTPs to leave the question of the effectiveness of the method, if necessary, unresolved and to live with the apparent contradictions. In this way, an INTJ can even side by side seemingly contradictory assumptions. Many INTJs are looking for higher-level laws that consolidate such contradictions. However, they have fewer scruples than INTPs to leave the question of the effectiveness of the method, if necessary, unresolved and to live with the apparent contradictions. In this way, an INTJ can even side by side seemingly contradictory assumptions. Many INTJs are looking for higher-level laws that consolidate such contradictions. However, they have fewer scruples than INTPs to leave the question of the effectiveness of the method, if necessary, unresolved and to live with the apparent contradictions.

The INTJ usually has very good organizational skills that help him to develop plans to realize his vision step by step. Due to his vision, he is able to identify problems in the implementation of a project at an early stage and to take appropriate precautions. However, the tendency to make provision for all eventualities can also be a hurdle if INTJ, in its desire for a perfect implementation of its vision, continues to postpone concrete realization.

INTJs are types of thinking, and usually less interested than the INFJ, in maintaining harmony. They are therefore more willing to point out to others the inadequacy of their assumptions, even if they may be hurt in their feelings. The certainty of their point of view, following introverted intuition, often gives INTJs a high degree of confidence in defending their point of view. Moreover, INTJs are usually very thorough in their cognitive process. They spend a lot of time acquiring knowledge and analyzing and understanding theories and systems. In doing so, they are interested in substantiating their claims through demonstrable facts. INTJs are therefore fast becoming experts in their field, which can convince by sound arguments.
Therefore, they often find it unreasoning to demand that someone put into the room a thesis that obviously lacks logic and that is not justified by any facts. In this case, the INTJs can sometimes be perceived as arrogant and opinionated by less people who appreciate the logic and the acquisition of knowledge.

INTJs often clash with types who value traditions (SJ types ie ESTJ, ISTJ, ESFJ, and ISFJ) and whose need for security and predictability is violated by disregard of generally defined instructions. Especially younger INTJs often find it difficult to accept traditions that are obviously obsolete. It often transcends their idea that people, despite better knowledge, want to cling to ineffective methods and actively hinder true progress.

The special skills of an INTJ are felt above all in companies that are open to new developments and improvements and who are willing to give INTJ a lot of leeway in developing and implementing its ideas. On the other hand, INTJs have a harder time working in highly hierarchical companies, where power games often hamper efficient implementation of corporate goals. INTJs accept authorities as far as their power position is based on performance and competence. Conflicts can arise, however, when INTJs are forced to execute instructions whose effectiveness and effectiveness seem doubtful. If the INTJ is not in the position to abolish or ignore the senseless sense of action, This can seriously undermine INTJ’s self-image and create tensions between all participants. However, before an INTJ believes that its environment is in the way of true progress, it should self-critically rule out that it is not its own type-based weaknesses that jeopardize its vision.

Especially young and immature INTJs, whose emotional function is underdeveloped, consider conventions that seek to create harmony between people, often as a waste of time. They mostly dislike small talk and have a hard time expressing their affection with other people. Often they seem cool and distant to their fellow human beings. Because of their direct way of criticizing others’ misconceptions, their desire for constructive change can easily be misinterpreted by more sensitive natures as personal rejection. Ultimately, they also deprive themselves of potential ally for their ideas. By adequately integrating their emotional function, they realize that logic is only a system for achieving personal goals and that not every person chooses logic as the goal.

The extraverted feeling is the inferior function of the INTJ. He, like all dominant intuitive types, tends to downplay the importance of details. Often, INTJs are unaware that they have withheld other important detail information. Such omissions often complicate the discussion of their ideas with S-types, which place more value on unbroken lines of reasoning and which are quickly overwhelmed by the mental leaps of an INTJ.

By improving their communication skills, INTJs can increase their own effectiveness in implementing their ideas. Especially the knowledge of the 16 types can help them to recognize the peculiarities of their methods of perception and judgment. In addition, the knowledge of the other types helps them to become more tolerant of the strangers’ opinions that seem strange to them. With this knowledge, they are more likely to develop effective methods to make their ideas palatable to other people. At the same time, they can constructively consider the particular strengths of others in implementing their plans.
