INTJ Personality

The INTJ Personality is all about applying insight. The INTJ wants to make sense of the world around them, and use this information to improve their world. They want things to make sense and they are attracted to learning anything that gives them a stronger model of the world around them. The INTJ can understand the building blocks of society and use them to navigate the world in a way that puts them in an advantageous position. They are industrious and like to see if their strategies will work for them. They can have a strong internal vision and work hard to make it a reality. If they are faced with setbacks, they can use it as an opportunity to refine their vision and take a new approach if necessary. The INTJ can ignore tradition and norms in order to get their work done. They may seem to be a bit non-conformist and slightly rebellious to others, but they simply believe that their way works best, and will likely prove itself in the process. They can sometimes be a bit in their own head and have an idealistic view of the world. Their vision and morals can make them a bit stubborn and standoffish. However, they are at their best when they are challenging themselves and their inner mind to complete goals externally. They need to process their emotions and learn when they are making decisions from a place of hurt. However, when they are creating and in line with their own inner morals, they can make great things happen.

Enneagram Type 9 (9w8 9w1)

The Enneagram Type 9 is all about achieving inner peace. The Enneagram Type Nine is all about figuring out ways to live in harmony with their environment. This can lead them to being very creative and understandings of others. They can be very empathetic and prefer to compromise instead of imposing demands on others. However, this can be problematic if they sacrifice too much of themselves. The Enneagram 9 is at their best when they are being instinctual and know how to work with themselves and their environments. When they become detached from this spiritual and instinctual center, they can become too uptight and lose any momentum they have gained. The 9 is at the top of the Enneagram and therefore shares many of the traits of all the other types. The Nine must learn to assert themselves and their visions if they want to understand themselves better. It is much easier to attach to someone more assertive than them instead of understanding how they can strike out on their own. They would be their strongest if they approached a problem head on, instead of finding a way to tiptoe around it. The 9 is great at understanding others and creating harmony, they just need to learn that it is okay for them to apply themselves and go against the grain sometimes, especially if they feel very called to do so.
