This may inspire them to gather as many facts and self-help strategies as they can regarding human psychology and relationships.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with doing so, it may not always remedy their predicament in the way they might expect.
This is one reason why typology can be so useful for INTJs, as well as other types.
One of the hallmarks of Fi is a desire to preserve and defend the uniqueness of the individual.
This is why some INTJs (as well as IFPs) can seem fairly dismissive of or even hostile toward typology.
With that being said, it is important to remember that INTJs’ Fi is in the tertiary position, which means it’s fairly unconscious.
Therefore, INTJs are generally less consciously concerned about Fi matters than FP types are.
Although not afraid to assert themselves via their auxiliary function, Extraverted Thinking (Te), the INTJ is naturally more passive, even somewhat phlegmatic in his or her presentation.
More proactive types, such as ENTJs, might even consider the INTJ a bit lazy or apathetic.
While INFJs are strong in extraverting their judgments, INTJs can be even more so because they lack the peacemaking, people-pleasing, and socially sensitive elements of Fe.
This is why INTJs are often perceived as “brutally honest,” a trait that can be off-putting and misunderstood by types preferring a softer or more sensitive approach.
When it comes to forming and developing relationships, INTJs often have a few factors working against them.
For one, they express themselves via their auxiliary Te rather than Fe.
INTJs’ dominant function is Introverted Intuition (Ni).
