Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test? You should–and then tell me what you are! The Myers-Briggs tests are usually not free, but there are some that are free and probably just as accurate. You can try here or Google something for yourself.

INTJ = Introversion, iNtuition, Thinking Judgment

I found out only 1-2% of the population is INTJ. Really? I am not alone?? I mean, I like to be alone–a lot–in a physical sense. After discussing certain INTJ traits with another INTJ, I stumbled upon an INTJ website written for you to help you deal with me. (Oh the beauty) LOL

I couldn’t stop laughing when I read the FAQ’s. Here’s one. If you don’t know me, you won’t really understand this. If you do know me, you’ll laugh as hard as I did. (The truth is always funniest, isn’t it?)

Q: What are the pet peeves of INTJs?

A: Thanks for asking. Our pet peeves are:

  • We dislike surprises.
  • We hate having decisions made for us. We’re INTJs; nobody is more qualified to make decisions than us.
  • We dislike getting gifts, as it burdens us with the need to reciprocate.
  • We hate small talk, gossip, and relationship/people talk. Really anything mundane is beneath us.
  • We get particularly annoyed by attacks on our intelligence, competence, and integrity.
  • We hate it when people try to manipulate us.
  • Insincerity and lying.
  • People interfering with our alone time.
  • People who are chronically late.
  • People who talk incessantly. We will just engage our “nod and smile” autopilot and mentally go somewhere else.
  • People who are stupid, arrogant, opinionated, and/or closed minded.
  • Crooked/badly placed pictures.
  • Superficiality (body piercings, pimped out cars, brightly colored anything).
  • Salespeople. INTJs are immune to emotional manipulation and have zero tolerance for lines of bullshit.
  • Incorrect grammar and word usage.
  • People who waste our time (see Salespeople, people interfering with our alone time, etc.).

And seriously–I agree with 100% of the above.

  1. LOL!!

    1.) I think my sis in law is probably an INTJ also, or something very similar on the scale.

    2.) I would probably annoy you TO DEATH in real life because I. Can't. Stop. Talking.

    3.) My results always very a smidge on the last two letters but I know that the first one is ALWAYS an E. 😉

  2. Ok, I took it again, I got ESFP. After looking at the types, I could recall the the other one I often get is ESFJ. It goes back and forth between the two, depending on my mood when I take it.

    I've blogged before about my multiple personalities. 😉

  3. Thanks for this (Candid Karina sent me here). I took the personality test & discovered I am ENFJ. The profile is eerily correct!

    Now I want to find a website that will tell people how to deal with me! lol. Fun post this was. Thanks for sharing it.

    Uh oh. I was supposed to be working.
