Learning about INTJ personalities:Part 2
Here are some of the questions and answers that I picked on my most recent test. Now, I’m not saying that all people with my personality will pick the exact same answer but it is usually pretty close with what I have seen.
Most agree is 1 to most disagree is 7. I know… kind of weird numbers to use but it is what it is!
You find it easy to introduce yourself to people?
6 Definitely! I’ve built up so many filters because people who I trusted in the past that I thought were good, didn’t turn out to be. So as you can imagine, it does take me a while to not only introduce myself but have a conversation. First I observe how they interact with other people.
You often get so lost in thoughts that you ignore or forget your surroundings?
3 I did say I’m a thinker. I am constantly thinking so I do sometimes choose to ignore or don’t pay attention to what is happening around me. Although, I am now able to think and at least what it is happening around me.
Emotional movies can easily make you sad
5 Most of those movies do not make me easily sad. Most of those “sad or drama” kind of movies seem fake to me compared to what my life or other lives that I know went through. If anything, with those movies that are based on true events (say World War movies) just make me mad that people could do those things to other people.
You like to leave matters undecided for as long as possible as there may be better options down the road
7 This is something that I strongly disagree with. I never leave matters undecided. I am always a person who constantly thinks about something so I can come to a logical solution and move on to the next problem. I am never one to linger.If a better option comes down the road, then my solution will usually bear that in mind so I will be able to improvise on my plan. You could say that this is why I’m way more mature than a lot of people my age because I’ve discovered the solutions to many problems.
You do not mind being at the center of attention?
7. Even when I’m with my friends and all extroverted, I will not be the center of attention. I will always try to put the attention on someone else. Never try to continue to make a person with my personality do something they definitely don’t want to do. By the 5th time of you asking them to do something, they will 1. Probably have strong resentment toward you. 2. Definitely won’t want to do it. So it’s best to just drop it! I also do way better with a person one-on-one.
You find it difficult to start talking when you do not yet know how exactly you will present your idea?
2 I find this to be very true. I never open my mouth unless I’ve thought about something so much. I would have to come up with something so concrete and true/logical that when I open my mouth, I am telling the truth and only giving wisdom. It definitely helps to be a very deep thinker.
You are often envious of others?
6 No way am I envious of others. I don’t really care what other people have or are. I don’t really care to be like another person. I am a person who prides himself on being unique. The best thing about me is that I am not you but me!
An interesting book or a video game is often better than a social event
1 By Far! Notice a 1 on this answer. Anything that concerns a big social event, I will try to stay as far as possible. I don’t mind being with a couple of my friends playing a game or whatever but social events are. *sticks finger in mouth* Yeah, part of it is because I analyze people and with so many people, it gets kind of tiring, which is why when I get home, I’m usually exhausted and to think that my mom (ESTP) the exact opposite wants to do some more social activities. Yeah, we clash a lot!
Being able to develop a plan and stick to it is the most important part of every project
1 If you can’t stick to something, don’t even bother starting it. I am a very committed person in everything in life including friendships. If you can’t put in the effort, then I don’t even want to bother with you because I always put in all of my effort.
It is a challenge for you to look at criticism objectively
6 I will take any criticism that I receive, even when it’s harshly said as long as it is logical. In fact, any logical criticism that I receive is probably something that I already know about myself and am trying to work on.
If the room is full, you stay closer to the walls, avoiding the center
1 I am always at the sides of the walls talking to my friends who I am comfortable being around. In fact, if my parents want me to go somewhere, I always ask them if [insert name] is going so I can talk to them. I then quickly get to them and have meaningful and funny conversations and sometimes, we watch other people and discuss how they (the partiers) can do some of the most stupid things and then laugh about it.
Is justice more important than mercy?
This one was so hard for me because I think justice is so important and yet I believe in foreignness and I have forgiven people many times for their faults in yet if another person kills, abuses, or
rapes (sexual abuses) another person – I will go with justice every single time. Things like that should not be allowed PERIOD If you let a person go, then they will do the same thing again and again until you kill “stop their beating heart” is probably a nicer way of saying it and yes, I believe in Capital Punishment for major crimes. So this is a 3 on most agree. Anything else happens, I will definitely show mercy.
