I think INTJ's just don't want a proper job. :)
Do you want to work with hopeless stupid people all day? ...Didn't think so :)
Working with hopeless stupid people is how I managed to look competent in the old 9-5. :D Unless it's your own company the ideal hire is someone nice who isn't a threat. It's the same logic wives use when they're choosing a nanny.

Well that explains the populace at my current workplace then....although some of them aren't nice either :).... It's a dead end job and looking competent is a good way to get more work and interruptions but not much else..... I don't mind the more work thing, I like to work, but its the interruption by hopeless that I find leads to stomach ulcers :)...

If it's your own company, i would think it's the other way round...best that you're the most incompetent guy there.

surprisingly a lot of INFP's on here. INFP's are beautiful people - at least the few I have met IRL.

Also I had a laugh out loud moment when I read this post from John Sheppard.
What I have seen from people doing these tests is that almost universally people go...that's me...I am awesome...and you know what? it's true... INTJ's are the best :)
Mind
65%
INTROVERTED

Energy
66%
INTUITIVE

Nature
53%
THINKING

Tactics
60%
PROSPECTING

Identity
51%
TURBULENT

INTP - which I have tested at since I was in my teenage years. But I think I have balanced out a little bit with my feeling and judging aspects. Also I have worked a great deal on my extraversion, but as much as I love good people I prefer just being in isolation from the world.

2 of the biggest weaknesses - understanding peoples emotional reasoning and making plans and getting sh!t done are still issues but less so nowdays, so it is nice to see this reflected in the results.
