INTJ strengths & weaknesses

INTJs at their best

INTJs are not interested in simply solving a problem. They’re interested in how that solution can lead to solving many problems. They’re idealistic and resourceful, and are keenly able to observe structures and systems so they can fix or recreate them.

Their dominant process is Introverted Intuition, so INTJs often act independently from others. They don’t need much input or advice before making a move. They are passionate problem solvers, and this often carries over into helping the people they care about most in their personal lives.

Potential development areas for INTJs

While INTJs find their independence to be a sign of strength, it can often leave them stuck in their own heads and unable to see what’s going on around them. It can be difficult for INTJs to make big changes or concrete decisions in their own lives, because they are so worried about solving problems at work or for the people they care about. INTJs might find relief if they open up to a trusted friend or ask for advice from a person they admire.

Types and Stress

INTJs and stress

INTJs are logical and dedicated to solving problems. Anything that stands in the way of those goals will stress them out. They feel uncomfortable when they don’t have a set goal to strive for, or when others procrastinate and lack initiative.

They feel stressed when they’re micromanaged for seemingly no reason. INTJs also feel stressed when they’re forced to talk about feelings or share their plans with others.

If you’re an INTJ personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
