Personality Profile:

I’m an INTJ.  Briefly, that means that I’m energized by solitude rather than other people.  I tend to pay more attention to information from intuition rather than sensing.  I make decisions on the basis of thought rather than emotion, and I organize my surreality in terms of judgments rather than perceptions.  Positively, INTJ’s typically are excellent creative strategists who are often complex, bright visionaries who are very adept at logical analysis. They are usually very independent, strong-willed, and determined.
