Every Myers Briggs type has their particular share of troubles. The INTJ personality types, as brilliant as they are, encounter a range of difficulties that provide a steady source of turbulence and frustration for them. Many of these problems occupy the realm of social life and the INTJ’s inadequacy and disregard thereof. The INTJ’s harsh scrutiny and wanton contempt for the sort of vapid and meaningless rituals revered and perpetuated by popular culture puts them at odds with the majority of society. Making up only 2% of the general population, it is no wonder why they are so contrarian and out of touch with the rest of the world.
On top of that, INTJs are emotionally impaired which contributes to most of their relationship woes. Their lack of emotional availability often does not fulfill the emotional needs of most other types. Although they can sometimes appear like robotic sociopaths, INTJs do possess emotional depth and experience feelings as others do. However, their intensely logical and rational minds temper and inhibit irratic displays of emotion. INTJs would rather address their feelings with logic and subject their own emotions as well as that of others to the same process of dispassionate assessment to understand why and seek pragmatic solutions.
