INTJ – I’ve got a vision for how to fix things, and I’m ready to make it happen!
Written by Catherine Rains
With an Introverted Intuition dominant type, those with INTJ preferences can sometimes surprise their coworkers and/or subordinates when they suddenly announce the direction they want to take their department/organization to. Although often described as a flash of insight, this decision will basically be a done deal in their mind by the time they share it with team members because they will have thoroughly thought it through before saying a word about it. Motivated by analyzing a system and designing creative ways to fix what is broken, INTJ types are attracted to careers that allow them to come up with solutions to problems, and then put the solution into quick practice. But once the solution is implemented, they will be looking for another problem to solve, and leave the long-term implementation up to their Sensing preference counter parts. Careers that were identified by INTJ types attending a MBTI® Certification workshop included: International NGO Manager, Hotel Management, Historian, Writer, Consultant, Film Director, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Graphic Artist, and Human Resources.
For those of you who prefer INTJ – what others careers have you been attracted to? The more we add to this list the better and feel free to repeat what is already listed above. We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that others types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer INTJ.
