in nature, but he is a thinking reed.


It can be lonely at the top. As one of the rarest personality types – and one

of the most capable – Architects (INTJs) know this all too well. Rational and

quick-witted, Architects pride themselves on their ability to think for

themselves, not to mention their uncanny knack for seeing right through

phoniness and hypocrisy. But because their minds are never at rest,

Architects may struggle to �nd people who can keep up with their nonstop

analysis of everything around them.

A Pioneering Spirit

Architects question everything. Many personality types trust the status quo,

relying on conventional wisdom and other people’s expertise to guide their

lives. But ever-skeptical Architects prefer to make their own discoveries. In

their quest to �nd better ways of doing things, they aren’t afraid to break

the rules or risk disapproval – in fact, they rather enjoy it.
