How INTJs See The World
“The world needs improvement.”
“We must build a better system.”
“We must improve ourselves.”
“The world needs to be more understanding.”
Those statements are few of the most common thoughts of an INTJ.
To begin with, these are the questions this article will answer:
What is a world?
How do INTJs interact with it?
What do INTJs think about it?
How do they see the world?
The “world” can be described as:
a.) the Earth and the entirety of it
b.) the society
c.) an environment which a person interacts with.
INTJs have the ability to analyze things within themselves and other people. They often see the Bigger Picture which leads to them drawing conclusions based on the collected information and different worlds. This gives a hint to what the world means to an INTJ.
A Room of Possibilities
Something cannot exist without solid explanation and evidence. INTJs often think about how and why it exists. They see that the universe is always a result of something. Introverted intuition innately presents them thousands of possibilities from recorded data.
(An INTJ sees his/her environment of interaction as a garden like a fresh piece of potato meaning a lot can be done with it.)

A Mystery to Solve
There must be more of this spherical piece of spec floating in nowhere. Extroverted thinking whispers questions to an INTJ every now and then. A minutia of an observation leads them to a new set of questions which could sound irrelevant but are actually really important.
If the presented data needed to a certain question was dubious, an INTJ would seek a more logical answer in order for the truth to be delivered.
The world is a research material…a mystery to solve.
It doesn’t feel good to discover you’ve been fooled. Lying has become a normal thing since the beginning of time as it is an instinct for survival. Animals often deceive their enemies by optical illusions and so do people.
INTJs give great importance to honesty and transparency. The truth is crucial in order to arrive at accurate predictions of outcomes. If the facts are suspicious, INTJs will seek information for assurance(surf the internet or library). They determine the source of conflict first and find a way to truth and help others in confusion. We can say they wear “lie-proof vests”.
(If you need reassurance, please contact the nearest INTJ in your area for verification.)
INTJs are often seen as aloof and cold. Most have experienced being bullied as children and due to social pressures they experienced in social situations during younger years—most have been members of bullies/ gangs themselves during their adolescent period to understand the culture of the general population.
By the succeeding years of their lives, the sole purpose of social interaction becomes crystal-clear to them and eventually, they seek to jive in with the society. This is not only beneficial in discovering more information but also in the corporate world where most INTJs’ career fall.
A fairly large population of INTJs thrive to improve their social skills whereby most of them succeed.
Lots of Irrationalities
The majority of population waste their time seeking popularity, fitting in with the society, becoming the next youngest billionaires, and the list goes on. While everybody is putting a lot of effort and money destroying the world through illogical methods, INTJs do not give much importance to the current status of things but to the Bigger Picture. These individuals are busy trying to save the world from behind the scenes.
Instead of doing such things, they build systematic plans by providing an improvement to the way of living—eventually implementing them.
A Better Place
The world is in disorder, suffering the intolerance of the social rules, standards, and biases. INTJs know that the world isn’t supposed to be like as it is. On the contrary, they might be arriving at different solutions to the misjudgments of the world’s already better solutions to every miscalculation of the world structure.
Though they do not live and see the world through their senses but instead see it in a programmed and structured manner. A world that can be re-programmed and fixed. The world they see is a world that can be better and improved. Through the right actions and integrations, there is indeed something we can all do to make the world a better place.
The world is a training ground and a constant battlefield for survival. It is full of struggles and hope. However, we can conclude that INTJs don’t usually see the world as it is but as what it can become. What they see, is the essence of it.
To INTJs, the world is not seen by the eyes but by the mind. It is not what you see in front of you but what is behind it—the reason for its existence and why it is there. More importantly, what lies ahead of it and how it can be improved.
The universe is indeed a place for an INTJ. A world that will always stimulate their minds, push them for the pursuit of knowledge, excite them and inspire them to make a change for the betterment of the world itself.
INTJs aren’t the only ones who can think for the better—in fact, all of us can (cheers!)
Now that I have suggested some important points about how INTJs see the world, I suggest that it’s better to observe INTJs first. Asking them about certain things won’t really irritate them. On the contrary, they will be excited to answer your questions.
