The Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking & Judging Type

Meet the INTJ 'Visionary' Personality Type

To the Visionary, character is of absolute importance. INTJs spend a lot of time working on themselves and seek to be good, morally upstanding people that achieve success in the world by following a morally strict code. Introverted Feeling is the driving influence behind this trait in INTJs.

Importantly, the Visionary is a goal-oriented type that wants to translate complicated ideas and ethical beliefs into practical action. You rely on Extroverted Thinking to set goals for yourself and so your goals are often ambitious and far-reaching.

As a Visionary, it is common to feel a bit out of place in the world. You may sometimes feel abnormal or different from other people. You struggle to follow practical social norms and to relax and have fun in a group. Visionaries are often highly serious, or maybe your mind is focused elsewhere? This is because you have inferior Extroverted Sensing.

INTJ Thought Processes

In a Flow state

In a flow state, INTJs can be highly focused and creative, focused on designing and developing a unique idea to later. be presented to the world. You can lose yourself in your own inner world, thinking over different options logically and determining a strategic course of action. You are always thinking not just about an idea but how it should be executed.

Firstly, INTJs tend to act from behind the stage, preferring to lead from a distance. You prefer to be the one that has the original idea and if you can, you would leave execution and presentation to other people. Tact and diplomacy is less important to you, most importantly, you can be effective and straightforward in your communication.

Secondly, Visionaries tend to need independence and space so that they can work on and perfect an idea fully. It is easier for you if people will let you do things your own way and if other people will avoid to interfere with your process. INTJs are systematic and mentally organised. Your thoughts, while abstract, all follow a specific process.

Thirdly, control is an important part of flow for a Visionary. You want to feel that you are in charge of a project and that you are involved in every step of a process. You prefer to work alone, and if that is not possible, you prefer to have independence to choose your own path and to do things your own way without having to discuss it with other people.

  1. The first time I took the test on MBTI official site and I got INFJ-T. A few months later, I decided to take it again and still got INFJ. During that time, I watched a lot of videos on YouTube about 16 personalities type and differences between INFJ and INTJ. Sometimes I even thought that I'm an ENFJ, ENTP, and INTP. Later I realized that I use logical reasons to make a decision and I can take criticisms well(that means I am an INTJ). Being an INTJ doesn't mean that I'm rude or terribly blunt. Actually, I'm a very polite and respectful person in real life. Yes, communicate directly to solve the problem doesn't mean you have to hurt others' feelings nor cold. I become more extroverted when I'm with 2-4 friends. I crack jokes and laugh too. Being INTJ means I have a goal for my future self and I work hard for it, trying to make the world become better if I can contribute something to it.

  2. I would like to know the difference between a red and blue intj, and the difference between a navigator and a decider.
