I had worked under an xNTJ's orders (not sure if he was a misanthropic E or socially skilled I, but I'd go for the latter) and it was awesome. It grew into an unofficial partnership as he was according me a total trust to do whatever I wanted without consulting him and I had no problems following his orders without asking why, most of the time we were totally on the same page. However, I have to say that the few times we weren't... well it wasn't pretty to see.
i just started working with someone i figured (correctly it turned out) was an intj
she is fab to work with; we get on really well, get each other's jokes and work really well together, its been a really good experience for me so far especially as i do feel my brain gets really charged becuase i dont have to constantly explain slowly to someone what i am doing and why all the time, our logic seems very similar and well.....logical
the two of us also think pretty much the along the same lines about our colleagues, which is often really funny, we dont even have to say anything but we know what the other is thinking....however i have no idea what our other colleagues must think of the two of us....
(disclaimer: typing from a phone) this is exactly why I joined percafe--to sharpen myself from getting to know other INTJs. I really want to develp a frndshp w/one or more so that I can "bounce ideas" and have someone else in my life who understands me. additionally i have been looking for a potential business partner, and thought this a great place to start.
I personally don't see that many problems with the idea. Being surrounded by logical, analytical people who I can relate to sounds too good to be true though.
If everyone has similar opinions/ ideas on how to get a particular task done then its going to be the most effective team ever.
If not, then well, a chaotic (and too logical) argument with people yelling will be the least of highlights.
It would be very interesting. Alas, we seem to not have problems online in group dynamic but reality poses thorny problems sometimes. I think it's best if we're all working together to achieve an objective...if we have to socialize it could go awry. It wouldn't be awkward because there wouldn't be any social facades present; rather, it would be an honest ineptitude.
something else amazing that i have discovered, is that i can 'be myself' at work for the first time ever!!
if we have some piece of work to do, we just book a side-room, and blast through it, and i dont feel drained by the social interaction and pretence that i did when i have worked with some other people, i dont have to dumb myself down, or be 'tactful', its just such a lot less exhausting and such a lot more fun
I wish I knew another INTJ. I have the feeling we'd work splendidly together as long as we agreed on the same basic ideas. If not...well, that could be fun, too, because I could debate with them without worrying that they were taking it personally. But not very productive. ;;>.>
So I found this in the INFP section and thought it would be useful for my fellow INTJS. Courtesy of Nova.
Take issue with something going on in society?
Having a bad day?
Have something on your mind that wont go away?
Experience something so fabulous you just have to express it?
Sometimes I experience strange situations where people suppose I have zero "street knowledge", or that I am socially and romantically naive, so they are overly cautious about those topics around me, like I am a kid or something. :ROFLMAO: Is this just me? I recently asked a friend about it, and...
Here are updates from my daughter who is an Internal Medicine Physician at a major USA University Medical Research Hospital. They are treating many covid patients. I spoke with her last Saturday about the pandemic and did not hear from her until this morning. Here is what I received from her...
