    Does anyone know what this stands for? People claim they are this but I can't seem to find out what they mean when they say INTJ.

    It's the personality test.

    I'm a INTJ, other times I've taken the test it says INFJ. I guess only a small percentage of people fit this personality description.

    I see the Myers-Briggs thing on too many gay profiles now. It makes me not want to make contact with these guys for some reason.

    Probably because everyone claims to be INTJ. When you read the rest of their profile, they're not even close to INTJ.

    i don't see how INTJ stands in any more value than other personality traits, even if you are INTJ that does not mean you are perfect or have no traits that others would find unappealing or help to succeed more in life than other personality traits and how that helps for the dates anyway? How is that a benefit to potentially get a date?

    I'd think it not a matter of "more value than other personality traits" with regard to dating but rather "less of" in the world so just as a gay person might have to announce themselves, to come out to freely find similar, so might feel the lesser occurring personality trait for reasons of finding a similar mate if that is their desire. Or if they simply feel the need to get that out there to not be misunderstood.

    Why would someone have a problem with that? Just as I often refer to all the lucid dreaming I've done, which is fairly rare for most. It's not just in offering explanation as to how mind might work, not just in showing what's possible for any mind, but also for the possibility of finding a compatible other. I don't require that, but don't we all seek some commonality: Oh, you like going horseback riding, I like horseback riding too. Or at least some acceptance: Well, I don't ride but I don't mind if you do. And just because most people are not practiced in dreaming, never mind in thinking, should I go back into the closet on that like some would have gays do?

    And curiously, what might be co-existing, in other words, I'm not saying one causes the other or being one is better than not, but while I don't know of a scientific survey yet, enough of us have been outing ourselves and a pattern seems to be arising, that it might be that the INFJ's as myself (and I've tested numerously online and professionally with the same results) and the INTJs as well as other IN's seem to be more likely the lucid dreamers among us, which does make some sense, those who tend to live in or explore more their own minds.

    Someone has a problem with that? Well news flash: We're IN's, we swim like we got fins and if you don't like it you can go fuck yourselves.

    are you kidding me? that would the same as if an individual would look only a partner with hazel eyes in combination with ginger hair and no freckles and even that would make more sense that looking for someone with some test result personality combination traits that overall do not represent the person in any detailed way or define the person or bring any value to potentially dating someone
    your comment makes no sense

    That's not true at all. Besides that someone might fetishize eye color, not my thing but I don't give a fuck that someone else might, personality traits would be a tad more relevant to social intercourse than would most physical traits, because you are who you are inside regardless of who you show outside.

    If you removed your arms and legs, aside from dealing with that and what changes that might affect your mood, you'd be for the most part the same person inside. So what you've just said, that personality "traits...do not...define the person" is, frankly, ridiculous.

    What you seem to be focusing on is some idea that someone is by coming out of the closet as gay, as a practitioner of dream yoga, as a certain personality, whatever have you, that they'd be bragging or in some way asserting superiority, when the motive might not be that at all. Your misperception might just be your own insecurities.

    It might not be that someone is advertising superiority, so you can stop being paranoid about that, but rather that they seek understanding or as I already noted that they seek simply to not be misunderstood (which is too often their experience).

    Ok, well pretty sure that 99 % of the population do not give a flying crap about some internet test and NTJFNTF, most of the people don't care, have no clue what is it nor they are willing to think about the interactions between those classifications and nor really should they, so the intention that someone is posting that to not be misunderstood is ridiculous in my opinion. And I am not paranoid about that at all, because in reality 99,9 % of the population do not care about NTJFNTJN's maybe you are a little bit paranoid and place value in things that most people have no connection with regardless of their NTJS

    Stop being such an asshole please.

    I was born awake in my sleep so my life has been one of living it. I don't have to wait on you. The only limits to the expansion are what we place upon ourselves. Otherwise infinite, everyone will have died "by then".

    INTJ is very rare actually.

    (me)

    -------

    they are very hard to date actually.
    More so than most introverts.
    They are both introverted and Judgers, so they tend to watch everything you do and note it for later, you will never know what they really think about things, because they dont really react to much externally. They will spend a lot of effort making plans a-z for everything that will go wrong because they will think nothing will go right and are usually right.
    They are really really bad to piss off. They will do what they say, say what they mean, and will not talk unless they KNOW. Maybe, is pretty much their answer to everything, because they wont commit unless they know something but when they say yes it is written in stone. They do not like changes or flightiness or going with the flow. They will plan everything to the second and you better tell them ANY data that changes their plans for omitting data is the biggest sin to INTJ

    If you say next week you are going to Restaurant X at 730, the INTJ will have planned the route, accounted for traffic, reviewed the menu online or in person, scouted the tables, checked the dress code, and moved money to pay for it to the right account (and more than likely looked up coupons). If you were to say, show up at 7:38 and say you kinda feel like going to a movie or something instead, you go in the BAD BOOKS, pretty much FOREVER as untrustworthy. You might think nothing of it, but the INTJ spent a lot of brainpower internally on the commitment, and you just made him one more step back from trusting humanity, which is DIFFICULT. The only thing worse than that would be to let him plan something, go along with it til the last minute (knowing full well that you dont really want to do that) and then at the last minute after he is excited PLAN A is going to work, saying "I dont want to". YOu become sub-human at that point.


    Just sayin'

    OMFG that sounds like a slightly more jaded version of myself. I always come up as INFJ though when I take the test. T I am not. This is really the biggest problem I have with gay men. I hate flakiness. I hate when people suddenly change plans (gay men love to suddenly change plans for a date and opt for sex instead with me). The world won't end win it happens but the more it happens the less I trust other gay men.

    I = Introversion (as opposed to "extraversion" or "E"))
    N = Intuition (as opposed to "sensing" or "S"))
    T = Thinking (as opposed to "feeling" or "F"))
    J = Judging (as opposed to "perceiving" or "P"))

    These are "preferences" and represent polar opposites--for example, introversion is the polar opposite of extraversion. MBTI is a psychometric test that puts people in various "baskets" based on their preferences as reflected in their answers to a number of MBTI personality tests. Your "personality type" is represented by a four-letter code, thus, INTJ.

    If you're seriously interested in determining your personality type, you should talk to a certified MBTI practitioner. It's not as simple as some people believe. Don't believe what you read on the Internet either. BTW, I am MBTI-certified (which means that I can administer, score, interpret, and evaluate all types of MBTI psychometric tests), so email me if you have a compelling question.

    Took various versions of the Myers-Brigg Personality Test, and I mostly fall on the INTJ too, but I veered into ISTJ a lot. I guess many on here already said what that means, but here's reading material if you want.

    Even in my psychology text books, it says this test shouldn't be taken seriously because people tend to answer the questions more or less dishonestly, answering more pessimistic or too optimistic; if you are honest the better it works I guess. It's interesting to see the ridicule, as if intj's are special and better than other personality types? Just like it says, we are introverted, so naturally we live in our minds, combine that with thinker judger and intuition, you have an excellent chess player who thinks ahead right? I mean what are the downfalls? Well probably overly self-conscious, overly pessimistic, more susceptible to neurosis and nervous disorders, what's so glamorous about that? There's a thin line between madness and genius like they always say.

    Pfft everyone's an INTJ online. It excuses their anti-social tendencies as qualities of a brilliant but misunderstood mind.

    ^That is a good argument. I wonder how INTJ's function in a society let alone a website that is almost entirely based on outward beauty and masculinity, especially since introversion and intuition are feminine characteristics

    I mean, excuse me for the audacity to indirectly refer to myself as a genius. But the point I'm trying to make is INTJ's are know as philanthropists because they look at the bigger picture and empathize with people. I can't help but be disgusted and feel alienated from an overly materialistic and superficial society/world. Maybe that's because I can't get laid easily or feel like I'm ugly and have low self-esteem maybe because I live in a society that values extroversion, I dunno maybe I'm just too neurotic lol

    Or maybe I'm just a jaded piece of shit that just gone done drinking a six pack and throwing a piece of plastic in the trash that will probably kill several seagulls and now I'm going to eat some cookies and pizza because I saw an ex in the grocery store this morning
