Andrew, INTJ. Biochemistry & Molecular Biology is my thing. I like to think of this blog as a visual embodiment of my inner world and thoughts. If you like what you see feel free to follow.

What I Hate About Being an INTJ


This was originally going to be the pros and cons of being an INTJ, but the cons list got too long :P

  • I am either overwhelmed with emotion or I really don’t feel anything. There’s no in between. Every time I experience an emotion, I’m surprised by its strength. 
  • I am either super competitive or I really don’t care at all. This is probably why I don’t like sports - I can never get myself to care. 
  • Hugs are extremely uncomfortable.
  • Whenever someone is crying, I want to go hide in a broom closet and never have to see them again.
  • Whenever someone comes to me with relationship problems, I sound and look like a jerk even if I’m genuinely trying to help them. 
  • I cannot give compliments. I can only critique. 
  • Even if I do try to compliment someone, it ends up sounding fake and forced (and it probably is)
  • Often, I actually do want to connect with people on an emotional level. When I do, however, I feel really awkward and back away. 
  • I have the memory of a dead goldfish.
  • I am daydreaming/thinking 65% of the time in class.
  • I’m too hesitant and indecisive when it counts. 
  • Procrastination.
  • Even when I’m going up to the checkout line to buy food, I plan out what I’m going to say beforehand.
  • I get stressed out over something that’s going to happen a month from now.
  • Getting motivated to do something is harder than actually doing it.
  • I bring books to the supermarket just so I can squeeze in three seconds of reading.
  • Interacting with people who cannot tell the difference between a bookstore and a library makes me want to nuke the universe.

"I love you"


INTJ: I see.

INTP: Really? Why do you love me? What about me to do you love? Do I love you too? How can you be sure you love me?

ENTP: Ah well I guess I love ya too.

ENTJ: Are you expecting me to love you back or something? I don’t work like that.

INTJs and Other Personality Types


Kindred Spirits: ENTJ, INTP, ISTJ

Intriguing Differences: INFP, INFJ, ENTP, ENFJ

Potential Complements: ISTP, ESTP, ESTJ, ENFP

Challenging Opposites: ISFP, ISFJ, ESFP, ESFJ

Kindred Spirits
People of the following types are more likely than most to share the INTJ’s values, interests, and general approach to life. They won’t necessarily agree on everything, and there’s no guarantee they’ll always get along, but they’re more likely to feel an easy rapport and have plenty of things in common.

Intriguing Differences
People of the following types are likely to strike the INTJ as similar in character, but with some key differences which may make them seem especially intriguing. The INTJ may find people of these types particularly interesting and attractive to get to know. Relationships between INTJs and these types should have a good balance of commonalities and opportunities to challenge one another.

Potential Complements
INTJs may not feel an immediate connection with people of the following types, but on getting to know each other, they’ll likely find they have some important things in common, as well as some things to teach one other. Although people of these types may not attract the INTJ initially, their relationships present a lot of potential to complement and learn from one other.

Challenging Opposites
People of the following types present the most potential for personality clash and conflict with the INTJ, but also the best opportunities for growth. Because people of these types have fundamentally different values and motivations from the INTJ’s, initially, it may seem impossible to relate. But because they are so different, their strengths are the INTJ’s weaknesses, and if they are able to develop a relationship, they can learn a tremendous amount from each other.
