How I get along with INTPs as an INTJ

Personality types are mere archetypes who people don’t perfectly fit. The type corresponding in this blog post is shaped based on my understanding of the mainstream MBTI information. Celebrity quotes don’t necessarily mean the celebrity is that type. My motivation for this blog is presented here.

I love INTPs, you guys are my type of friends to hang out with. Honestly I don’t see that awkward anti-social stereotype that looms over being an INTP. Hanging out with you, there’s no peer pressure to speak of, no Chad’s to deal with, no sense to impress anybody. We chat over beers, get…

The people’s champion. ENFJs, it’s always a blast and a rewarding experience when I’m around you. You take it upon yourselves to ensure I am enjoying my time. I’m more than happy of letting you take the reins of any situation when it comes to group activities — whether it’s a night out drinking…

A letter to my introverted self fresh out of college

It’s 2008, you’re going to your first job out of college. You’re at a small Japanese automotive factory where you’re the one engineer tasked to increase output and efficiency out of the company’s manufacturing processes. Plant wide of 3 shifts and over 200 workers, you devise production strategies, manage labor resources, build new tools and fixtures, write standard procedures, redesign assembly lines, dive deep in massive self built ERP spreadsheets. Your mind is leading this company to record profits. In fact, it’ll be the only North American division to even make a profit…Out here. In California.

You’re loving it.

You…
