In response to 1+1= INTJ?, written by Caroline on March 28, 1998 at 14:59:38
] Somewhere on the net, in all the Myers-Briggs stuff, I've seen stated that Jane Austen was probably an INTJ. . . . Her writing is so definitely 'N' and 'J', almost all writers are 'I' and differences between 'T' and 'F' is fundamental to almost all her books.
If so, that would be rare indeed, as only 1/3 women are T's. However, I'm not so convinced about 'N'. That doesn't seem to me to be a strong characteristic in the writing.
] The combination of INTJ personality (rare) and exceptional intelligence (rare) gives an extremely unusual person. It probably scares the willies out of your average John Doe. If you met one, what would it be like?
Oh, probably like meeting me (-: (Although you'd have to judge the intelligence thingie yourself--I stake no claims in that department.) I don't know that I've ever scared the willies out of anyone, though. There's a moderate number of INTJ's running around our division; you tend to find them in the computer field. Some of them might be a little scary! (-;
Of course, this all must be in play, as I have some strong reservations about MBTI! The test sees life as binary--à bas l'Aristotelianisme! Multi-valued logics forever!
