The Myers – Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test is a type of personality test which was developed by popular psychiatrist Carl Jung. Based on this test I am an INTJ = Introversion, iNtrusion, Thinking & Judgement. I took the test here.


According to Wikipedia, INTJ are one of the rarest of the 16 personality types, and account for approximately 1-2% of the population.


I – Introversion preferred to extraversion: INTJs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy).

N – Intuition preferred to sensing: INTJs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.

T – Thinking preferred to feeling: INTJs tend to value objective criteria above personal preference or sentiment. When making decisions they generally give more weight to logic than to social considerations.

J – Judgment preferred to perception: INTJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability, which to perceptive types may seem limiting.
