As of now, I'm 25 years of age.Do you believe age defines (or at least provides an adequate insight into) subjective intellectuality
And people like that become kind of cult hero's for INTJs instead of the cautionary tales they are. I think many of us would secretly like to succeed in spite of ourselves rather than by developing in the necessary area's. It's not enough to be brilliant in the head, one must also have some practical way of getting those idea's off the ground. And that obstacle is often the limiting factor for many introverts with good ideas.I just read about William Shockley, a Nobel Prize winner and the founder of Silicon Valley. He sounded like an INTJ to me. However he's a failure in work place and personal relationship (his children found out his death from the newspaper).
Completely agree; I give about 1% for the idea itself and 99% to the actual implementation. I'm experiencing this firsthand now that I've started a company. Actual product itself along with good marketing triumphs over the novelty of the initial idea by a great margin. There are probably a thousand people who had thought of the same idea, yet only a few are courageous enough to attempt it, and even fewer have the right resources and grit to actualize it.The ability to generate idea's alone isn't all that great.
