Lagi, INTJ

Kali ini tulisan randomnya memang cukup random. Kak Minda, kakak kelas yang berbeda dua tahun dengan saya, memposting hal yang membuat saya iseng mengikuti tes personality (lagi). Katanya, sekarang dia beralih dari INTJ menjadi ENTP (dan saya semakin kehilangan teman perempuan yang juga INTJ, kok langka begini >_<)

Hasilnya? Saya masih dengan sangat amat setia berperan sebagai INTJ di muka bumi ini. Introvert 84 %, Intuition 79 %, Thinking 68%, dan Judging 84%.

Dengan melanjutkan keisengan saya membaca-baca tentang INTJ, saya pun memilih pasrah dengan ‘kesetiaan’ saya. Alih-alih menuruti keinginan untuk denial (dengan salah satu alasan sederhana, karena INTJ lebih banyak laki-laki, dan saya jadi agak sedih karena itu. Karena sering terlalu ‘berbeda’ dengan teman-teman perempuan lainnya. Makin random, kan -_-), saya ingin menjadi hamba yang bersyukur, yang mengoptimalkan potensi positif dan memperbaiki sisi negatif diri.

Jadi, keisengan saya berlanjut ke sebuah situs yang menuliskan tentang INTJ Personal Growth. Izinkan saya menyalin beberapa hal yang ingin saya bagi tentang ini :’)

Specific suggestions:

  • Take care to listen to someone’s idea entirely before you pass judgment on it (jadi, harus tuntas ya mendengarkan pembicaraan seseorang :D). Ask questions if necessary. Do whatever it takes to make sure that you understand the idea. Try not to begin judging anything about the idea until you have understood it entirely.
  • Before you begin talking to another person, pause for a moment and look at that person. Take in that person’s attitude and feelings at that moment. Be aware of the person with whom you’re speaking. (pause? -_-)
  • If you become upset, walk away immediately. DO NOT express anger. When you get angry, you lose. After you have calmed down, apologize for leaving and continue with what you were doing. (tentu saja !)
  • Try to identify the personality type of everyone that you encounter frequently in your life. Remember that people with the Sensing preference need to be communicated with in a direct, concise manner. Speak plainly and simply with Sensors, giving “yes” or “no” answers.
  • Try to be on good terms with all people, even those that you consider beneath you. Try to understand that everybody has something to offer.
  • When you make judgments or decisions, try to be aware of your motivation for making the judgment. Are you more interested in finding fault externally, or in improving your own understanding? Seek first to understand, and then to judge.

Ten Rules to Live By to Achieve INTJ Success : (jadi ingat rule of nine, yang menggambarkan TBSA/total area permukaan tubuh pada luka bakar atau lesi kulit pada kelainan autoimun untuk menentukan tingkat keparahannya. Hehe)

  1. Feed Your Strengths! Do things that allow your brilliant intuition and logical abilities to flourish. Explore the fascinating worlds of science, mathematics, law and medicine. Give your mind an outlet for its exceptional analytical abilities, and watch them grow.
  2. Face Your Weaknesses! See your weaknesses for what they are, and seek to overcome them. Especially, strive to use your judgment against your internal ideas and intuitions, rather than as a means of disregarding other people’s ideas.
  3. Talk Through Your Thoughts. You need to step through your intuitions in order to put them into perspective. Give yourself time to do this, and take advantage of discussing ideas with others. You’ll find externalizing your internal intuitions to be a valuable exercise. If you don’t have someone to discuss your ideas with, try expressing your ideas clearly in writing.
  4. Take in Everything. Don’t dismiss ideas prematurely because you don’t respect the person generating the ideas, or because you think you already know it all. After all, everybody has something to offer, and nobody knows everything. Steven Covey says it so well when he says: “Seek first to understand, and then to be understood.”
  5. When You Get Angry, You Lose. Your passion and intensity are strong assets, but can be very harmful if you allow yourself to fall into the “Anger Trap”. Remember that Anger is destructive to your personal relationships. Work through your anger before you impress it upon others, or you will likely find yourself alone. Disagreements and disappointments can only be handled effectively in a non-personal and dispassionate manner.
  6. Respect your Need for Intellectual Compatibility Don’t expect yourself to be a “touchy-feely” or “warm-fuzzy” person. Realize that your most ardent bonds with others will start with the head, rather than the heart. Be aware of other’s emotional needs, and express your genuine love and respect for them in terms that are real to YOU. Be yourself. (nggak usah memaksakan diri jadi orang lain, jadi dirimu sendiri yang terbaik. Segala anugerah dari Allah pasti yang terbaik ! :D)
  7. Be Accountable for Yourself. Don’t blame the problems in your life on other people. Look inwardly for solutions. No one has more control over your life than you have.
  8. Be Humble. Judge yourself at least as harshly as you judge others.
  9. Assume the Best. Don’t distress yourself and others by dwelling on the dark side of everything. Just as there is a positive charge for every negative charge, there is a light side to every dark side. Remember that positive situations are created by positive attitudes. Expect the best, and the best will come forward.
  10. Don’t Get Isolated! Recognize the value that the external world represents to you, and interact with it in the style that’s natural to you. Join clubs and internet e-mail lists that house in-depth discussions of topics that you’re interested in. Seek and foster friendships with others of like competence and capacity for understanding. Extravert in your own style.

Selamat mendewasa, Cahaya :’)

Tambahan :

People with the INTJ personality type are serious, analytical and perfectionistic. They look at a problem or idea from multiple perspectives and systematically analyze it with objective logic, discarding things that turn out to be problematic, and evolving their own understanding of something when new information turns out to be useful. There is no other personality type who does this as naturally as the INTJ. They are natural scientists and mathematicians. Once given an idea, they are driven to understand it as thoroughly as possible. They usually have very high standards for their own understanding and accomplishments, and generally will only value and consider other individuals who have shown that they meet or surpass the INTJ’s own understanding on a given issue. INTJs value clarity and conciseness, and have little esteem for behaviors and attitudes that are purely social. Social “niceties” often seem unnecessary and perhaps even ungenuine to the INTJ, who is always seeking to improve their substantive understanding. INTJ’s highly value social interaction that is centered around the meaningful exchange of ideas, but they usually dismiss the importance of being friendly or likeable in other social contexts, and they are likely to be uncomfortable with interactions that are primarily emotional, rather than logical. INTJs value structure, order, knowledge, competence, and logic. Above all, they value their own ideas and intuitions about the world. An INTJ’s feeling of success depends primarily upon their own level of understanding and accomplishment, but also depends upon the level of structure in their life, and their ability to respect the intelligence and competence of those who share their life.

The INTJ’s mind is naturally geared towards systematically analyzing information from many contextual perspectives, and rejecting or retaining information as they become aware of its usefulness or validity. They probably do very well in school, and in any pursuit that requires serious analytical thinking.

Nearly all INTJs will recognize the following characteristics in themselves. They should embrace and nourish these strengths :

  • They’re extremely insightful, and see things that are not obvious to others. This ability to see patterns and meanings in the world can help the INTJ in many different ways.
  • When given a goal or context, an INTJ is able to generate all kinds of possibilities. They’re able to see the problem from many different angles, and come up with a solution that fits the needs of the current situation.
  • They don’t take criticism personally, and are open to changing their opinions when they’re shown a better idea or better way of doing something.
  • An INTJ has a “stick to it” attitude. They’re not afraid of hard work, and will put forth a great deal of effort towards something that they are interested in. This persistence will help the INTJ to achieve any identified goal.
  • Usually intelligent and able to concentrate and focus, the INTJ can usually grasp difficult ideas and concepts.

    Menurut saya ENTP orang-orang yang baik, kok. Mereka juga kadang terlihat seperti introvert selain itu populasi mereka juga sedikit. Sebenarnya mencari teman gak harus punya kepribadian yang sama, teman dekat saya INFJ. Oh saya juga baca ENTP & ENFP adalah pasangan/teman yang ideal untuk INTJ, menurut saya mereka punya banyak ide yang menyenangkan untuk dibahas dan dibicarakan, jadi gak masalah kalau punya teman selain INTJ. Perkenalkan saya juga INTJ. Hahaha

    • Yap, sepakat πŸ™‚ Klasifikasi kepribadian seperti ini (INTJ, ENTP, INFJ, ENFP dll) jangan sampai dijadikan sebagai pengkotak-kotakan manusia, kita manfaatin untuk lebih mengenal diri aja. Kita harus belajar bekerja sama juga dengan yang lain. Toh setiap orang punya positif dan negatif, nggak ada yang sempurna 100%. Salam kenal Naufal πŸ™‚
