Of course, INTJs would be the first to tell you that how we define lazy is entirely relative.Because their first job is to function as Intuitive Perceivers rather than as Judgers or actors, operating in a passive mode of perception is actually the sort of “work” they are meant to be doing, work that can ultimately benefit society.Others may find their reserved power, intelligence, and enigmatic nature to be attractive.When searching for a partner, they can be quite logical about their choice.We can be so matter-of-fact and hard-headed that it's difficult to imagine us doing something as frivolous as falling in love. We know that we're pretty darned outstanding as relationship material, just too awkward to play the dating game. INTJs inhabit a world that resembles Downton Abbey - cold on the outside, but there's always something spicy percolating beneath.
More proactive types, such as ENTJs, might even consider the INTJ a bit lazy or apathetic.
Before a Relationship Compared to the other types, INTJs typically develop romantic relationships slightly later in life. For one, INTJs do not inherently adhere to social rituals, as flirtation and small talk are viewed as obligatory rather than pleasurable.
In addition, INTJs place a high focus on education and career, placing little thought on relationships until they feel that they have the time.
They use their cerebral minds and creative imagination to foresee potentials in the future, and therefore, plan contingencies and predict possible scenarios. Because of the way their mind works, they are be critical and analytical, to the point of perfectionism.
They look at a situation in so many ways, and often, they could just forget that the answers are right before their eyes. While they are confident, this can carry on too far to the point of complete arrogance.
