There are other types that outperform INTJs in IQ tests (for example, INTPs), but I would venture to say that in all the ways society chooses to acknowledge ‘intelligence’, INTJs as a group outclass just about everyone else.
Sure, other types outclass them in intra- and introspective intelligences, and of course kinesthetic/body awareness intelligence.
For the above to reasons, the biggest insult you could give to an INTJ would be to completely ignore their theories; it means they're not even worth the effort of considering.
They usually appear organized and decisive, working towards a set goal.The colloquial meanings of these terms differ somewhat from the technical Myers-Briggs definitions, as most people mistakenly equate Extraversion to popularity or likeability. An Intuitive would see the abstract meanings, the movement, and the trends behind objects and events. A Feeler would form conclusions based on their values, taking into account other people's feelings and subjectivity.Surgeons and accountants are likely Sensors, while philosophers and research scientists are likely Intuitives. A Thinker would form conclusions based on their objective logic, focusing on the task rather than people.A relationship with this quiet but self-sure individual can be very enlightening to the participants as a couple as well as on an individual level.Even if an INTJ relationship does not work out, both individuals usually walk away having benefited from the experience. This individual is nicknamed “scientist” or “strategist” because they see the world as a plethora of possibilities waiting to be discovered.
