INTJs at their best

People with INTJ preferences are passionate problem solvers. But they aren’t interested in simply solving a problem; they want to see how a solution could solve many problems.

This often carries over to their personal lives, too, where INTJs are known for helping the people they care about most.

Independent, idealistic, and resourceful, INTJs tend to keenly observe structures and systems so that they can fix them or recreate them later.

Potential development areas for INTJs

INTJs tend to be fiercely independent. They may see this as a sign of strength, but it can leave them stuck in their own heads, unable to see what’s going on around them.

In fact, people with INTJ preferences are often so concerned with solving problems at work or helping the people they care about that it can be difficult for them to make big changes or concrete decisions in their own lives. They may find it helpful to open up to a trusted friend or ask someone they admire for advice.
