Definition: Do people often describe you as quiet, creative, and analytical? Then you might be an INTJ, one of the 16 different personality types identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) The MBTI was developed by Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs based on Carl Jung's theory of personality types. The Myers-Briggs categorizes personality based on preferences in four key areas.

People with an INTJ personality type tend to be introverted and organized. They enjoy theoretical concepts and strongly prefer to work alone. People with this type of personality also tend to have very high standards and can be perfectionists. According to psychologist David Keirsey, an estimated one to four percent of the population have the INTJ personality type.

Learn more about the characteristics of this type in this overview of the INTJ personality.

I think I am that type of person, but not only. I am not very energetic and have a good sense of humour.

I chose to disagree, am quite creative, i like creative writing and drawing since d age of 6, am quite intellectual also, but am very spontaneous and quite an extrovert as i tend to initiate conversations wid random strangers, so the theory fails to describe me, REISS theory of ?16 basic desires? explains my personality well and i may go wid dat instead of INTB.

The Myers Briggs test is quite accurate if you answer the questions correctly. Part of the problem is people view themselves one way and, in reality, are another. I am INTJ. Every single time I take that test I get the same result. I would recommend taking it more than once over a span of time to see if you get the same results. Also, not all of the traits will be you but, it will be close. Do lots of research and read several different articles explaining your personality type.
