Day One: The Strengths and Weaknesses of an INTJ
This overview will help you understand why INTJs are the second highest earning type of the 16 types. You'll also find out why INTJs are least likely to get married but most likely to stay married. Many tendencies of an INTJ are both a strength and a weakness, such as perfectionism and direct communication. This session will give you the full 360-degree view of the INTJ.
An interesting thing about personality type is that it's always relative. You'll be surprised to find out what makes you different from other people. For example, did you know most people do not care if they accomplish anything on a daily basis? You'll also discover strengths that you didn't realize you had. For example you probably take for granted that you can teach yourself anything if you have a book on the topic. But most people are unable to teach themselves something new simply by reading a book. Once you see where you are relative to other people, you will have a more clear understanding of how people see you.
Day Two: Social Skills for the INTJ
People often say that every type has a weak spot except the INTJ. The only weak spot of the INTJ is they have no patience for people who are not as competent as they are -- which is everyone who is not an INTJ. The INTJ is usually aware of the fact that people are put off by INTJ behavior, but often INTJs do not have the social skills to improve the situation.
The INTJ will actually get more done and meet goals faster by developing social skills to get along with people who are uncomfortable with direct, goal-based communication. This session will show you how to do that. You'll learn how to read people quickly so you know what sort of communication will work with them. And you'll learn how to adjust your behavior in group settings in order to quickly get people on your side.
Day Three: Career Paths for the INTJ
The thrill of solving complex problems in the workplace means that INTJs will always do some kind of work, no matter what stage of life they are in. The extreme competence of INTJs means that they are always in demand. This session will cover work-life balance issues for the INTJ (yes, you have to stop working to go home for dinner) and it will cover ladder-climbing issues for the INTJ (you can run the company from the number-two spot so you don't have to do CEO meet-and-greets).
We'll also cover careers that INTJs are likely to try, such as writing and entrepreneurship. We'll talk about the most effective strategies for INTJs finding successful in those arenas. And we'll talk about other, less common career paths INTJs are likely to enjoy, such as art director. And we'll look at fields INTJs assume they will hate, like sales, yet there are some sales positions where INTJs are a perfect fit (consultative sales, for example).
Day Four: Question and Answer
You can ask any question and you'll get an answer tailored for your type.
