The INTJ personality type

As an INTJ, your dominant way of directing attention is an internal one, towards the inner world, where you analyze things mainly through personal intuition. The secondary way of directing attention is external, where you analyze things logically, rationally.

INTJ people live in a world of ideas and strategic planning. They value intelligence, competence, knowledge and, typically, have very high standards in this regard, standards that they strive to achieve. The others are somehow expected to be just like them.

With an Introverted Intuition dominating their personality, INTJ people focus their energy on observing the world generating ideas and possibilities. Their minds constantly gather information and make all kinds of associations, connections. They are very insightful and understand new ideas immediately. 

However, their priority is not to understand the concepts, but their practical applicability. They want to be actively involved in everything they discover.

The INTJs are in great need of order and systematization, and this, combined with a penetrating understanding of things, makes them excellent scientists. An INTJ as a scientist knows how to give a gift to society by turning ideas into a useful form for others to understand and use.

It is not an easy thing for INTJ to express their inner, imaginary and abstract ideas. An INTJ is a strong conceptualist and yet makes great efforts to translate ideas into a system of notions already used, understood by others.

INTJ people are innate leaders, but they choose to remain the people behind the curtain, except in situations where they really need to take the lead. When they are in the lead, they are quite efficient because they know how to observe the objective side of things and they like to find solutions to things that do not work properly. 

They are strategists by definition, constantly scanning ideas and concepts that are circulating, adapting their strategies or keeping them for situations where new data will surely be needed.

INTJs spend a lot of time inside their minds, having too little time and interest in the thoughts and feelings of others. If the effective part is not well developed, they may have trouble giving others the necessary degree of intimacy. When the sensory part is not very well developed, they may end up ignoring details that are necessary to implement their ideas.

INTJs have many abilities to accomplish a lot of special things. They can convert their conceptions, their ideas, often very precious, into concrete, feasible plans. Usually, we find them among the most competent people and they will have no problem in achieving their goals, pursuing their desired career.

For those who learn to communicate with others and who practice tolerance towards people, a special life is reserved for them, both as professional and relational accomplishments.

INTJ anime characters Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia

21 INTJ anime characters (A complete review)

He has a cold and distant personality, due to his upbringing and childhood trauma, so he does not relate much to other characters.

When fighting villains, he maintains a relaxed and calm attitude, as we saw in the attack of the villains league, during the rescue training, where he defeated a large number of enemies calmly, in the same way, it is shown in the exams of the YUUEI ACADEMY.

He always had that cool, calm demeanour except when faced with Stain and when he feels the power of All for One.

INTJ anime characters Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan

21 INTJ anime characters (A complete review)

The name “Levi” is of Hebrew origin and means “He who unites his own.” He is also recognized as “the strongest soldier in humanity”. This reputation was given by the other soldiers and the people due to his great combat abilities on the battlefield.

Levi is a serious person, with a firm character and clear ideas. He has great respect for discipline and is a conscript with enormous potential to be a leader, as his orders are always clear and precise, without anyone daring to question his authority. 

His seriousness and coldness transmit that kind of respect, especially this first factor, being someone with few words and who very rarely expresses his feelings. He knows perfectly well the responsibility that comes with managing a group of soldiers, and that depending on what his orders are, he can lead those soldiers to certain death.

INTJ anime characters Usui Takami from Maid Sama!

21 INTJ anime characters (A complete review)

Usui is the male lead in the series ‘Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama!’. He is madly in love with Ayuzawa Misaki, the main protagonist of this Shoujo. But the latter does not leave Usui as a slob, because Misaki tries not to put interest in him, but turns him into a fool in love more. His sensuality and his ways of appearing in the series are some of the reasons why you will love him.

Usui Takumi is a quite mysterious character, almost nothing is known about how he uses his free time, nor his tastes, nor his history (since, well, he is from a shoujo anime, and clear, focuses on him a female character …), but what we can take advantage of is his personality.
