Intj trouble dating
While not necessarily their fault, this should comprise at least as much of their relational attention as trying to see and diagnose problems in their partners.To be fair, accurate self-evaluation can be a problem for all J-types, since their preferred mode of Judging (Fe or Te) is directed outwardly rather than inwardly.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. INTJs’ dominant function is Introverted Intuition (Ni). In order to better understand how INTJs approach dating and romantic relationships, it is necessary to consider the potential impact and implications of their four primary personality functions (Ni, Te, Fi, Se).
As I have previously explained, since Ni is a Perceiving function, INTJs are best understood as dominant Perceivers.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.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.
