For people who know about the Myers-Briggs personality types, the INTJ personality is “one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types,” according to 16personalities. The 2% of the people with such personalities are known for their “relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering.”
INTJ stands for introverted (people who tend to keep to themselves), intuition (those with a higher focus on thoughts and ideas instead of experiences and facts), thinking (highly logical, less emotional), and judging (highly organized and goal-driven).
A relationship with this type of person can feel tricky, but can also be a deep journey into self-discovery.
So, here are some must-knows about the INTJ personality you should be aware of before dating them.
1. They cannot stand small talk
INTJ types like to explore topics deeply. They don’t feel at ease in the face of unanswered questions. Hence, you should consider choosing a broad topic to talk about with them rather than spending your time together chatting about the weather or how you spent your week at work.
2. They see sex as a mental medicine
Since INTJ’s cannot get out of their own heads, they even take them into the bedroom. What this translates to is basically that they are not satisfied with simple in and out sexual experiences.
They need a deep emotional connection and love experimenting, dirty talking, and all kinds of other things that keep them in the moment so they don’t get lost in their own unrelated thoughts.
3. They love helping others reach their goals
INTJ’s are known for showing their affection by helping people they like get closer to achieving their dreams. They help them understand that failure is part of the process of winning and even though you may have different values than theirs, they will do whatever they can to help you become the best version of yourself.
4. They feel much more than they express
Since INTJ’s aren’t the kind of people who shower others with affection, they may unintentionally make you think that you’re not that important to them. But don’t be fooled. If you’re having doubts about their interest, tell them how you feel and they may respond more positively than you can imagine.
5. They strongly value their alone time
INTJ’s don’t like to be disturbed when they are on a retreat trip inside their own minds. This is their time to make plans and do their best work to accomplish their future goals.
In addition, it helps them get a much-needed boost of energy so they can better socialize the next day. They want to spend time with you (after all they too are human beings) but need to know ahead so they can properly prepare.
