I frequently have this in mind, while i spent my leisure time to read and contemplating. A little curiosity of mine, a personal delicacy to tell, a thorough analysis in turn, perhaps more likely a hobbies that emerging upon my mind, and what is that?
Well, i often questioning about the similarity between two Isabel Myers Briggs personality, why they got a common thing? is there any likelihood? Absolutely, they are INTJ and INFJ. Both known as the so-rarest personality in world, well why? Let's peek a boo.
At a glance, i can only judge that the little difference point between thinking judging (TJ) and feeling judging (FJ) is only the determination process of both personality, that is thinking and feeling, the whole introvert intuition judging (INJ) could do is all the same way, that's all i can sum up.
But wait, it isn't simple like that. Is that only the little differences? Well, that's the right question to go, fellas.
Before we discuss the difference between those personality, let's go back to the main topic, shall we? INTJs and INFJs, are they a conformable twin? It makes me wonder, what's the similarity from both personality? Well, as the rarest personality in world population, i believe there are some similarity that related one to each other. Especially between this personality.
Let's start from INTJ, name it Olson as a fellow in role, and the INFJ, name it Naval.
INTJs are perfectionists, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes their interest. What prevents them from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.
INFJs are deeply concerned about their relations with individuals as well as the state of humanity at large. They are, in fact, sometimes mistaken for extroverts because they appear so outgoing and are so genuinely interested in people -- a product of the Feeling function they most readily show to the world. On the contrary, INFJs are true introverts, who can only be emotionally intimate and fulfilled with a chosen few from among their long-term friends, family, or obvious "soul mates." While instinctively courting the personal and organizational demands continually made upon them by others, at intervals INFJs will suddenly withdraw into themselves, sometimes shutting out even their intimates.

In real life, the obvious truth about introvert intuition is they are always had an internal protected mind atmosphere, or simply say, they have that 'very private' life so well that i can conclude this is the most greatest similarity between Olson and Naval.
Now, who say that introvert doesn't have that 'cold killing' look? most introvert have it, mainly Olson and Naval. But Naval do have more percentages of being as a funny buddies who can amuse his social surrounding because of the main feeling he use to apprehend everything in role.
The interesting fact of this personality, is that they're had a glutinous habit between each other, Olson are hard to know, the same thing goes with Naval, Olson are happy when put things in order, so did Naval too. Olson are consistent of doing something he want to accomplish while Naval are consistent of doing something he want to win, because winning is a pleasant feeling, they're both is bounded in a virulent competition. A good competition.
Olson want a perfect circumstance for conducting his ability, Naval want a perfect relationship with long time benefits and continuity. Say it, king of perfection, while all of other personality would have done with perfection, because of what? because perfection is only belong to god, the creator of mankind. If it doesn't, they take the other flight. A smoother, jazzy, lovely opportunities to have, in their nearly or even perfect version, of course.
Olson and Naval are quite fellow, they're formal, classy, rarely talk, never had a blissful face expression, never, not even when a day fulfilled by worldwide happiness. You will not hope it coming from them, do you? ok, we simply say you, we, are will not hope it coming from them. Because you know, something they see as a 'good' thing is when they have a grind. A little smile we all think so ruthless to see.
Sometime we hate Olson, we hate Naval too. Why? because they're motionless, they're unable to talk so much, talking so much? Oh... it hurts me, they say. Except Naval, he can consider it a lot, you know, he's going to talk a few sentence that explain our misunderstanding on them. But the rest of the thing will goes the same. Motionless. Plus, they're stubborn too, argh, it sucks. *And you left them behind.*
You see? they will always be a fish out of water in the hustle, unless they consider not to show it, you know the pretending-to-be trick? yeah, it's true, it's their nature. Olson and Naval are a hotshot actor when it come to some business like speaking in public scale, why? it is because they have that ability to impress the audiences? No, It's their expertise, a general picture, an enjoyable moment, to share their idea and seeing people amazed listening to what they talk, oh... for sure they'll love listen-able people.
You want them? Listen them, no bad comment, oh they will praise you like a best relationship buddies they've ever found, why, because the chance to listen their word, is a rare opportunity. One time they say a word, eighty percent you'll love it and you will be astonishingly gasped.
Just like their hobbies, to made up some simply beautiful thing. Now, it came to our unbearable problem, the one problem that needs a dozen of concentration and higher self controlling. At no intention, they come... oh yeah, they'll come without being invited, and our problem, it's like a magnet to them. You wanna know why? Oh... you don't underestimate the whole thing, like their intuition and analyzing power, do you?
Olson and Naval are the king of objection, they analyze and solve your problem, and voila! your problem are done. Some introvert intuition judging will love to observe and figure something out new. They invent, and produce something different, they will accompany you through the complexity of life. They will be your lover, your friend, your everything. Even though they seems like hard to understand, they never meant to.
Of course you will not hoping them coloring your life, like what ENFP's do, but you will hope them to have a valuable life for you, together with them, you will seek and find the truest life meaning, dedication, loyalty and honor. You will see anew future, a smarter lifestyle, with plan, and risk free calculation, they will hold their responsibility with nothing in return. Olson had commitment, so did Naval too. The best in it.
It would re-shape your life with them into a great one, you will share your life, i will share my life with them, we all will grow old together, i'll tell them a story that i'd love too, they will listen, oh boy, they're a good listener, especially INFJ's, don't you suppose that INFJ's is a counselor? a good listener for your business? Of course he is, he will never tired listen to your story, to listen every word of the story. For them, a mankind story is the attendance of life, they live within these things.
They will need you, you'll need them too, for the sake of a good life.
At last, they're like Mr. Genius and Mr. Clever, they strive together to achieve a good result, i can sum up that they're very goal oriented, future oriented, and they always questioning the good things while we proceed, they prevent bad things happen, they even calculate it, although there a little difference at their determination, but the result always goes the same. What it is?
It is, a triumphant masterpiece they made..
