    Who of the INTJ sub-forum actually has a friend that is an INTJ?
    I have an in-law who is an INTJ, and I don't know him too well. He is very smart and computer savvy.
    There is also a girl at school who I suspect to be an INTJ, which is astounding. Two females in a performing arts school. However I can't be sure.

    If you do have a friend/acquaintance that is an INTJ, how do you two fare? What's your friendship like?
    I know a number of people who have told me they are INTJs:

    1. Roommate/Friend: Tested as both an INTJ and ISTJ. (I believe he is actually ISTJ, though). I consider him a friend but we aren't particularly close. He annoys me with his anal tendencies from time to time. He tends to act quite irrationally and emotionally and I believe that is another reason we aren't close.

    2. An acquaintance from Church. I have great conversations with him and respect him but rarely are able to meet up.

    3. Roommate/Close Friend: Another college roommate. We had a lot of great debates on politics among other things. It's great with him, because we skip a lot of the social conventions that aren't truly needed. Be both respect each other in our disagreements. We are both stable, though is much more excitable than I am.

    We have developed a ton of our inside jokes and our humor includes everything: dry, sarcastic, witty, etc.

    Ahh, kind of new, and am just jumping in without wishing to disrupt. I got to this thread because I was looking for the MBTI advisement on what types are compatible with INTJ's specifically in friendship. Monty Burns said that to succeed, one must slay; family, religion and friendship. I thought having an MBTI coordinate would reduce a lot of the oblique difficulties of relating at this level if the non-INTJ's type was known, or judiciously estimated from a target type.

    I have a few INTJ friends, although some are in other countries or are out of contact.

    The friendship is easy and fairly direct. I can talk about just about anything that comes naturally and they are usually up for hanging out if they aren't too busy.

    In full-on 3D, I know one who is confirmed INTJ but may have mistested on the I/E part due to circumstances at the time of the test. She keeps getting mentioned in the Everyday Conversation thread for her sheer entertainment value. She's way too much younger than me to be a genuine friend and when it comes to values/goals she's probably everything in the world that most irritates me. We have almost nothing in common, actually. But there is still the fact that we clearly recognise the way the other's mind works, so there's a certain sense of affinity in spite of that. Conversation and interaction with her tends to be weird due to this extreme known/foreign configuration with us. I think you could say we don't really like each other, but we understand each other extremely well.

    I probably work with a whole bunch of them. I've never asked what their MBTI number is since I take only the most polite forms of 'interest' in most of my coworkers' 'personal' side. As far as workplace collaboration's concerned we usually get along extremely well.

    I have one who is either INTJ or INTP; she says she's tested as both but it's been coming up more and more J for her over the past several years. Never met in physical person, but we're on the phone all the time. Get along great. We have the same quirks, neuroses, worries, ruthless mindset in everything from hairy decisions to our sense of humour. I think we both understand the more emotional vulnerable side of each other well enough to be genuine friends too. I'd tell her things I wouldn't say to most folks simply because I already know she won't need it explained - she'll get it. And I'll make jokes to her that I know are far too heartless (however funny) for many others. I think the same's true for her.

    My dad is an INTJ, we have a great relationship that I would call more of a friendship now that I've got my own family. I can pretty well talk to him about anything without him getting offended which is nice, and he always has helpful suggestions.

    ESFJ - The Caregivers

    I have a best friend who's an INTJ. I've known him since middle school, great guy. I also have a friend who's an INTJ too. We get a long pretty well. She feels so far away, yet close at the same time. My math teacher is also a INTJ too. I would say hes one of my favorite teacher in my school so far.

    My best friend since I moved is an INTJ. We get along very well, but we don't talk as often as I do with some of my other friends. Most notably, we don't have arguments. We have periods of time in which spite and disagreement run rampant; not a spat on a particular issue that can be simply resolved. I imagine its something like a menstrual cycle.

    INFP - The Idealists

    I used to work with an INTJ male. We were definitely different on the exterior, pretty much on different ends of the social spectrum. But once I talked to him more, I realized we actually had quite a lot in common. He had this dark, cynical sense of humor and I found him absolutely hilarious for some reason. Some of the things he said would be so outrageous but subtle at the same time (he'd say these little remarks that no one else would notice except for me - I think he appreciated me for that). I don't think I've ever really clicked with someone that well when it came to sense of humor.

    He brought out this deep thinking, quirky side of me and I brought out his warmness and found that he was seemingly twice as social with all of our coworkers when I was with him. I noticed we were always on the same "page". If a coworker said or did something stupid, we'd pretty much have the exact same reaction and feelings toward it. I felt like I'd known him my entire life when in reality it had only been a few months. He ended up getting a job elsewhere and I haven't seen or talked to him since, but I really should have asked for his number or something. I think he was waiting for me to, but I never mustered up the courage. Wish I would have! I miss him a lot.
