    INTJ On A Team
    The following is adapted from Linda V. Berens, Linda K. Ernst and Melissa Smith, Quick Guide to the 16 Personality Types and Teams (Telos Publications, 2005) *Used with permission.

    How INTJs Build Relationships
    For them, team relationships have purpose—achieving a goal and making progress. They tend to get absorbed in work and enjoy collegial relationships with those who stimulate their thinking. Personal interaction is most often related to moving a project forward, to learning, or to strategizing together. Thus, they can be active team players when it gets the job done more efficiently. When relationship building becomes a deliberate part of their strategy, they willingly make the effort to praise others and put “deposits in the relationship bank.”


    How INTJs Deal with Conflict
    When interpersonal conflict occurs, they will usually withdraw or move on. They want discussions to be calm and reasoned, and highly charged interactions often leave them feeling in complete doubt about what’s happening. Relationships with even occasional improvement will be continued, but if they see no progress they will give up, learn from the experience, and move on. When a conflict of vision occurs, they can be stubborn about their own point of view and forge ahead.


    To Forge Better Relationships with INTJs…
    Provide a team environment that honors their strong need for autonomy and demonstrates respect for individual thoughts and feelings, ideas, and creativity. Provide opportunities for constant evaluation to meet their need for high achievement and competency. Put them in a situation where they can devise and implement long-range strategies aimed at efficient and effective use of the organization’s resources.


    How INTJs Approach Doing Work
    They may seem quite disengaged from the group as they gather lots of information about the why and the how of the situation. They will want time to analyze data and integrate information to create an internal map that gives them points of reference. Then the map is laid out and if no progress is being made, directives are given to get movement. Before a meeting they want an agenda, or at least a rough idea of what is to be accomplished.


    How INTJs Make Decisions
    They tend to make strategic decisions rather quickly as they compare new information to their vision.
    They can react in a very passionate way to the select principles or activities they find important. Concrete, logistical decisions often frustrate them or go unmade. They tend to critique the process used to think about a problem rather than focusing on the problem itself or the specifics. They may present several options for action, each with its own pros and cons and each thought through to its ultimate consequences.

    How INTJs Respond to Change
    When dealing with change, the issue becomes one of how congruent the change is with their vision. They tend to be so strongly convinced of their vision and a sense of being right that they find it hard to see how they could have been wrong. When this is the case, they need to see incontrovertible evidence and well-grounded logic to reconceptualize their vision and embrace the change.

    A good type fit once again but not as close as INFJ.
