Characteristics of INTJ women

All people are unique, but understanding the characteristics of a personality can help you achieve better relationships. Here are some characteristics of INTJ women.

# 1 Very intellectual. As an INTJ, you take pride in your wits and intelligence. They take every opportunity to learn to expand their knowledge and that is why they are voraciously curious. You would see them arguing, not to discuss arguments but to learn more.

# 2 Strategic. INTJ women see things from many different perspectives. They also like to cover all angles. Because of this, they are exceptional when it comes to strategy. They use their brains and creative imagination to foresee potential in the future and therefore plan contingencies and predict possible scenarios.

# 3 Overly analytical. Because of their way of thinking, they are critical and analytical to the point of perfectionism. They look at a situation in many ways and often they might just forget that the answers are right in front of their eyes.

# 4 High self-confidence. While they are confident, this can take them too far to utter arrogance. As a result, INTJ women can be quite haughty towards other people, making it difficult for new acquaintances to engage with.

# 5 Independent. That confidence, and the fact that they are very capable of making you are impressively independent. When they have a better idea, they will stand up for it, regardless of convention, tradition or what other people think.

# 6 Blunt. They can be so honest they can rub people the wrong way. If they are attentive and marginally critical, they can say things that not everyone wants to hear. But you know what - you expect the same from others. Don't worry ... you won't hurt their feelings. Just be brave and speak your truth too. You can take it.

# 7 Judgmental. They believe that their higher logic is correct, and therefore those who do not have a similar thought process are dismissed. They are not particularly interested in drama or theatrics, but they are very open to being proven wrong.

# 8 Crucial. They make up their own mind and therefore they will do what they do carefully. Most of the time, it is difficult for them to move in any other direction - apart from their rigid decision. It only happens when they value another person's thought process, and then they might be convinced of it.

# 9 Determined. If something arouses their curiosity, they respond. They can be very dedicated and they put a lot of work into achieving their goal. When problems arise, they are quite intrepid as they are confident in their skills and intelligence to deal with those bumps in the road.

# 10 Open-minded. They have an aversion to customs, traditions and so tend to be liberal. Nonetheless, there is nothing so absurd or impossible for INTJ women - as long as your ideas and suggestions are reasonable and logical.

What You Should Know About Dating INTJ Women

Now that you thought your girl really did have all of the outfits of the real deal - one of the true and rare INTJ women - now it's time to figure out how to deal with this complex creature. You need to know this especially if you really want to be with her, despite all the cold demeanor and dull mouth.

# 1 Thinking through a lot - a lot. Since INTJ women are very cerebral, expect them to think carefully before taking a step. They are not known to be impulsive, so be prepared to wait for a response from them.

Any decision would force them to analyze, strategize, and cover all angles and bases. But once they're done, you can bet they mean business and will stick to their guns.

# 2 Studying people. INTJ women love more than just gossiping, studying people, finding out what makes them tick. Being in a relationship with you will feel like they are constantly analyzing you, finding you out. That brings us to ...

# 3 Knowing better than you. After being in a relationship with INTJ women for a while, you find that they have explored everything there is to discover about you. You know your urges, emotions, reactions and dispositions. In short, they found out you are like the back of their hand.

# 4 Plan everything. As strategic as you are, you may have foreseen the best possible scenarios before you even set up your appointment. Hell, maybe they even memorized the menu wherever you go. And if something goes wrong to ruin your plans, you can be sure that they will not like it.

# 5 Finding mind games sexy. They are activated through intellectual conversations. You find it sexy when you challenge their philosophies with your own. And often they even like the mental "orgasms" of talking for hours compared to the real sensations of being physical.

# 6 It's hard to buy gifts for them. INTJ women are picky and therefore difficult to buy gifts from them. They don't like the usual chocolates and flowers and things for which they are actually of no use.

Your best bet? Either you find them something functional, something to eat or drink * wine or a fancy dinner are a safe choice * or just go ahead and ask for a wish list.

# 7 Loving you alone. More than any other species, INTJ women need their solitary time free from distractions and other people's company. In fact, they are more in their element when alone.

# 8 Just give preference to it. And by that we mean your opinion. Say it directly, and they'll respect and appreciate you more, even if they don't really agree with you. Hence, if you really want to win them over, you should leave your passive aggressive tendencies aside.

# 9 Definitely unemotional. While INTJ women have deep and strong emotions, just like any other human being, they don't get bubbled over them as often as most people. They know very well that emotions cannot be trusted and therefore they do not let them dictate their actions.

# 10 Completely cold and cold. Because she cannot be driven by her emotions and whims, she can be cold and cold-hearted. Give them flowers? They'll accept it, sure, but don't expect them to fall head over heels in love with you with a few romantic gestures.

# 11 But once they feel it ... But don't get them wrong. They are tremendously passionate about the things that matter most to them. Whether it's literature, politics, philosophy, or just their favorite TV series, they have passion. You'll be glad to find her with those rare bursts of emotion, and when you see these it's like fireworks - if not a supernova.

# 12 They are loyal to hella. Because of these strong emotions, INTJ women are heavily invested in a relationship in finding the right person for them. Even if they are not masters at showing love and affection, they show strong devotion and loyalty to their partners who are lucky enough to have them for friends.

# 13 She'd have to close. INTJ women absolutely detest it when a relationship ends abruptly. So if you leave them with little warning they will feel so disoriented because it looks like a piece of a puzzle has been lost. You would want to understand what happened and why and how things went wrong. Otherwise they will find it so difficult to move on.

Come on. Everything you need to know about INTJ women. So, when you date an INTJ woman, be prepared to be torn in ways that you may never have experienced before.
