The bottom line: For INTJs, become more self-aware and feel confident knowing how to win life.
Knowing yourself is a crucial component of maximizing your potential, and if you are an INTJ, The True INTJ will provide you with a well-defined picture of who you are, how you think, how you relate to people, and the optimal environments in which you excel.
Of course, this book is not for everyone, but if you are an Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judgmental (one of the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types) this book is a valuable resource that will likely yield dividends well into the future. Being an INTJ, what this book taught me the most are the unique ways in which I perceive and interact with the world, thus equipping me with the right language to express this perspective to others and maximize what I do best to shape my own path.
The True INTJ has chapters titled, “The Inner Lives of INTJs” (this is important because there is a lot going on in our minds), “INTJs in Relationships,” “INTJs at Work,” and “INTJs and Development.” These chapters answer crucial questions such as what motivates and guides INTJs, ideal performance environments, why they prefer autonomy, strengths, weaknesses, and tasks for self-improvement.
The book even provides a sample list of careers for consideration. So essentially, whether you are a teenager wondering what to do with life, a middle-aged manager contemplating how to best lead your team, or an elderly person reflecting on the life, this book will have something for you.
This succinct booklet is noticeably brief but doesn’t waste time with fluff or filler material. It gets straight to the point and delivers clear, actionable advice as well as plenty of points of reflection. Likely, most readers will get through the book in one sitting but will refer back to The True INTJ as they begin dating, progress in relationships and their career, and make strides in their life in general. A must-read for all “masterminds” and “architects.”
