INTJs are only 2% of the world’s population, and female INTJs are the most rare of all types. However, the most common type on this blog among women is INTJ, which is statistically amazing. Maybe every female INTJ in the whole world reads this blog. And almost all the super high-level men I coach are INTJs (Mr. Famous is an INTJ.)
Sometimes I feel like I know more about INTJs than about my own type, ENTJ. In every job I’ve had, the person I’ve worked most closely with has been an INTJ. I realize, in hindsight, that even as a twentysomething I would seek them out. Melissa is an INTJ, and she reminds me of that every time I suggest that she has done something wrong. She is incredulous. She reminds me how rare it would be for an INTJ to be incompetent. And she’s right. Which is probably why I always want to work with INTJs.
Of course this means that I am always the front person. I’m the one who raises the money for my startups because my INTJ thinks the song and dance is BS. I’m the person who has to hire all the entry level people because the INTJ would rather do the work himself than have to deal with people who have no experience. I am the person who has to sit in the office with no windows because the INTJ says he would never have agreed to rent that office and I shouldn’t have either.
My oldest son is an INTJ so I’m obsessed with reading what makes INTJs fulfilled in adult life. Melissa is one of my son’s favorite people, and I learn so much about INTJs from watching them together. For example, that picture up top is Melissa and my son having a great time.
And this picture is what it looks like when you ask INTJs to make it look like they are having a great time to other people. (Yes, that is my son pulling out his book at a meal.)
So often when I’m coaching an INTJ, I find myself wishing I could introduce them to each other. When Melissa’s recruiting business took off so that she didn’t really need to work for me anymore, she kept doing courses with me because she loves interacting with all the INTJs. In fact, it was her idea to do a course for INTJs. She said everyone would sign up because it’s so exciting to not have to deal with the other types.
This, of course, is a uniquely INTJ perspective. ESFPs, for example, would love to meet any type in an online course. And we will talk about things like this—how INTJs think really differently from other people, and how to prevent that unique perspective from getting the INTJ into trouble. After all, this is definitely not the most well loved personality type in the office.
In fact, it might be the most loathed type in the office. So we will talk about how to get those coworkers on your side while continuing to keep those people on track.
Now, I’m going to tell you a story:
I am starting a program where I email people information about their type each week. I wanted to make sure the information I selected is what that particular type would like, and then it occurred to me I should just hire someone who is each type to write the emails about their type. So I wrote a very short description of what I’m looking for. Basically ten separate paragraphs about five positive and five negative traits of that type that most people wouldn’t know.
Here are some examples of what people sent back to me after I hired them:
The ESTJ decided she should critique someone else’s list, she wouldn’t generate her own.
The INFJ was insulted by all the negative traits so there were ten positive traits on the list.
The ISTP didn’t write paragraphs. He just made a list of positive and negative traits.
The ENTJ’s assistant called to ask if she could get paid double what I offered so she could outsource it.
The INFP couldn’t find personality traits that seemed on target. So he came back with one paragraph.
The ENTP sent twenty paragraphs because she had so many good ideas for what to write that she couldn’t stop.
The ISTJ said he did research about personality type and decided it was stupid.
The INTJ was absolutely the ONLY person who was able to just do the assignment and send back ten paragraphs.
That’s when I knew I definitely had to do a course with only INTJs.
So join me and Melissa and a bunch of INTJs I admire, and we’ll show you best practices for being an INTJ, avoiding personality type pitfalls, and finding the best way to structure your life to get what you want.
