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.
