Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

INTJ - imagine that.

  • moderately expressed introvert
  • slightly expressed intuitive personality
  • moderately expressed thinking personality
  • slightly expressed judging personality

Odd note: "They are rather rare, comprising no more than, say, one percent of the population." But, in my trade and the people I associate with, I'd say 80% are INTJ. (Computer programmer and system administrator)


Quotes I liked:
Anyone considered to be "slacking," including superiors, will lose their respect -- and will generally be made aware of this


[...] are not at all eager to take command of projects or groups, preferring to stay in the background until others demonstrate their inability to lead. Now there is an understatement for me! Very very true.

pragmatic about the present, skeptical about the future, solipsistic about the past,

solipsistic - The theory that the self is the only thing that can be known and verified. And here I thought I was just slightly psychotic

[...] tend to be individualizing as parents, mindmates as spouses, and learning oriented as children. Ah yup, right again
