Understanding Architect Personality



Cognitive Functions

Based upon the Jungian personality theory, the test suggests that personality is composed of a number of different cognitive functions. These functions can be focused primarily outward (extraverted) or inward (introverted). Each of these functions relate to how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The dominant function is the most prominent aspect of personality, while the auxiliary function plays a supporting role. The tertiary function has a weaker influence, but can become more apparent when a person is under stress. The inferior function is primarily unconscious and is often a point of weakness.

Developing this aspect can help people form a more balanced personality.

Inferior: Introverted Intuition

  • They use introverted intuition to look at patterns, meanings, and possibilities. Rather than simply looking at the concrete facts, they are more interested in what these facts mean.
  • People with this personality type enjoy thinking about the future and exploring possibilities.
  • When remembering events, they may recall impressions more than exact details of what occurred.
  • They are good at reading between the lines to figure out what things might really mean

Inferior: Extraverted Thinking

  • As a secondary function in the INTJ personality, extroverted thinking leads people to seek order, control, and structure in the world around them.
  • For this reason, they can be very deliberate and methodical when approaching problems.
  • People with this personality type tend to make decisions based on logic. They organize their thoughts in order to see cause-and-effect relationships.

Inferior: Introverted Feeling

  • They use introverted feeling but because it is a tertiary function, they do so to a lesser degree than they use the dominant and auxiliary functions.
  • Those who develop this aspect of their personalities more fully pay greater attention to values and feelings when making decisions.
  • As a result, they may also feel more drawn to people and activities that are well-aligned with their values.

Inferior: Extraverted Sensing

  • In them, this tends to be the least developed of their
  • cognitive functions, but it does still exert some influence.
  • This function allows people to experience process information through their senses.
  • When this function is in play, people may feel that they are living in the moment and are energized by the world around them.


In case of Personal Relationship

  • People with this personality type are introverted and spend a lot of time in their own mind.
  • They work best by themselves and strongly prefer solitary work to group work.
  • While they tend not to be particularly interested in other peoples thoughts and feelings, they do care about the emotions of the select group of people to whom they are close.
  • But they are willing to devote time and energy toward making these relationships successful.
  • Other people often interpret them as cool, aloof and disinterested, which can make forming new friendships challenging
  • They tend to be reserved and prefer to interact with a group of close family and friends.

Friendship Tips

  • They tend to be solitary and self-sufficient, so establishing friendships can sometimes be difficult.
  • while they may not have a lot of friends, they do become very close and committed to those who persist
  • They tend to prefer friends who are also introverted, rational, and low on emotional drama.

Parental Tips

  • They have high expectations for their kids and offer support by helping kids think logically when faced with decisions.
  • Parents with this type of personality encourage their kids to be self-directed critical thinkers who are capable of solving problems on their own.
  • If your child is an INTJ, focus on finding ways to encourage your childs intellectual strengths, but try to find a balance that avoid excessive perfectionism. You can also help your child develop their emotional strengths and look for ways to express their feelings.

Relationship Tips

  • loyalty and understanding are important.
  • show that you are dedicated to your INTJ partner, but also dont pressure them to spill their emotions
  • Communication is also critical.Rather than expecting your partner to pick up on your subtle cues, focus on being straight-forward or even blunt about what you expect.
