Lol, lot of good summaries.
I don't consider myself a mastermind, but the thought of it is pretty cool. Like a marvel mastermind, bent on world domination, “Muahahaha ha....” :PJonah Walter
They have a strong “Will to Power,” power in the form of knowledge and understanding. They desire power over their surroundings through superior understanding. Happy to be called the MasterMind because this implies mastery of their environment through the mind.
They see the world as a game, naturally taking stock of their resources and see a branching tree map of where their actions would probably take them. Their goal is to have as much mental control and understanding as the game progresses.Chris Pierce
Famous people who use Introverted Intuition: Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bobby Fischer, Nikola Tesla.
They are hard-headed and critical visionaries who live for the implementation of schemes and ideas of their own making. Unlike INTPs, who are often interested in knowledge for its own sake, INTJs tend to discern a singular goal - "a change that needs to happen" - and then push for that goal in an intense and monomaniac way.
Once a worthwhile goal has been distinguished in their mind. They will often be extremely persistent in pushing for its fruition. They single out one idea - their best idea - and then give it their all. Once the consciousness of an INTJ has set its sights upon a scheme that has acquired this kind of meaning to them, they will pursue their goal with the greatest tenacity, brewing, musing, refining, and sitting on it for years until so much has gone into it that this one idea appears as practically irrefutable once presented to the world.
It is not just in their presentation of knowledge but also in their collection of it that is different from other types: For those long swatches of time, the "incubation period" where they are refining their idea and collect information in such a way that anything that is pertinent to their overall goal is considered relevant while anything that falls beside the goal is dismissed. As C.G. Jung has said of them, INTJs keep circling their vision, amplifying its cognitive connotations in their minds until they have formed a complete mental picture of its significance.
This mental picture functions not just as a roadmap for change, but also as a source of certitude. Hence their dogged conviction on the one hand, and dismissiveness on the other. They have perceived a very possible version of the future and it is exactly this vision that they are committed to bringing to reality. Others may contribute in ways that aid the idea towards its realization, of course, but to an INTJ, their vision is completely their own.Eddie Drake
Hey Leo, it’s hard to explain. You don’t really try hard to think. It kinda just comes to you.Eddie Drake
INTJ here as well. Here's a short summary:
They are systematic and often visionary problem solvers. They approach problems in a methodical manner. They are unconsciously observant and analytical, slowly noting how the parts of the whole fit together before taking decisive action. When they do so, they typically seek to arrange things to suit their needs or to achieve a particular goal or vision.
Outwardly they often appear distant and inexpressive. They can come across as cold or even harsh, but are more or less just detached. They do not easily get caught up in their emotions, the emotions of others even less.
Despite their somewhat stiff appearance, they have a rich inner life and will have an eclectic set of interests that tend to run very deep. Their interests are often geared towards abstract and theoretical subjects that should be able to be benchmarked by objective metrics. Whatever their interests are, they tend to pursue them with an almost obsessional intensity where they will let their curiosity lead them. Often they tend to be perfectionistic in nature, even in their relaxed and less abstract hobbies, they play in order to win, to become very skilled.
While not the greatest with people, INTJs find themselves in leadership positions due to their ability to devise systems that help facilitate work in a rational and efficient manner. They are good at this, since they have a greater overall vision of how things can and should function.
