When I first met Ben I was a more emotional feeler and he was a less balanced thinker. It’s odd to think how much we’ve both changed in the last several years.
In particular I recall one moment strongly, we hadn’t known each other long or that well: We were working on a project, he had just stepped into the lead designer role. He asked how many of the art assets he could throw away. Of our team of 3 artists only one didn’t fail classes the previous semester in order to dedicate more time to the project.
Intellectually, it was a good thing to know where the boundaries where/how far we could push things. it was a very TJ way of asking. Just about all the INTJs I’ve known have gone through (or mentioned going through) a period where they bulldozed people to some extent. It’s good to find boundaries and important to learn your strength. You’ll see a fair bit of this attitude on forums, archetypically the angry teenage INTJ that want to purge irrationality out of the world. Best type of INTJ to become a super villain. Type of INTJ most likely to be mistaken for an ENTJ. Sadly, many people’s stereotype of an INTJ.
