I was going to say the same, except in my case it's "find an INFJ to kick your butt." :laughing:Hook up with an INTJ business associate. They make a good balance. I'm an ENTP and my husband is INTJ. the reasons we make a good team are the same reasons he and his ENTP business partner are so successful. ENTP has great organizational and people skills, great with big concept ideas and innovation. INTJ has great practical knowledge, works hard, sees the finer details, and keeps the easily distracted ENTP on task. They make an unstoppable team. Ever since my INTJ husband hooked up with this ENTP at work, their careers have gone on the super fast track and they're doing innovative things and making a name for themselves in their field.
Oh, right. I'm married to and business partners with the same INFJ. He's great at prodding me in the, er, buttocks when we need to get things done, I provide the visionary bit and manage the creative side of things. Admittedly we're both slightly impractical in some ways, so our business teeters from the brink of one nearly missed disaster to another at times. I'm better at coming up with strategies but shit at implementing them, he's more planned but slightly unrealistic at times... somehow this works and we mostly balance each other out. And our third business partner (ISTP) does much of the routine crap we both find incredibly boring-- I'd rather brainstorm and design, my husband would rather play around with code all day long.What for an INFJ? As a great wife? Yeah that would be too darn cool! But maybe you meant as a kind of 'counterbalance' in business, which I d be glad if you could precise a little bit. Thanks
I know an engineer INFJ (systems engineering) and a coder INFJ, they're a subgroup but definitely there. We have an office in theory, my husband does most of his work there while I prefer to haul my Notebook around and get things done wherever. Our problems, such as they are, have mostly to do with being more interested in figuring out tangentially related things than with dealing with the routine everyday part of business, which is unfortunately the foundation of any successful business. Our ISTP is very helpful! But her business sense is frankly shit, so we try to make up for this. :laughing:Interesting how the INFJ is the one who codes, I thought it was more a xNTx realm. I am myself learning coding and I will be the one in charge of customer relations and the ecommerce plateform. I know an INFJ though she tried learning Webdesign but didn't make it through yet Sorry if I m too quick in generalizations.
Do you have office hours or you kind of are free to do whatever Ne pushes you to do?
Right now? Not much. I'm actually pretty kick ass at sales and customer service, but right now we have the ISTP run most of that side of things. It's... probably going to change at some point.ENTP, INFJ and ISTP coworking must be fun What your comment about her protesting attests very well. Do you personnally deal with customers? I know I could be good at it, but I m afraid it could be very time consuming and frustrating in the end.
