Blog Authors:  Valerie Skinner   is part of the IBM developerWorks team, getting to know the real developers who make up the My developerWorks community and exploring the world of social networking. I'm enjoying learning what makes developers tick! I'm very interested in exploring online communities and social media and understanding real world application - how they can help people solve problems and work together.

I think I am a mix :). I still can't figure out which one is stronger in me though.. May be thinker? (I realized my first sentence has "think" in it hehehe)<div>&nbsp;</div> Good post Val !

Hmm, I have to agree with Suma - I can't necessarily choose one over the other. Then again, if I can't determine the one right answer maybe that means I'm a feeler. :) (just for emphasis)

I'm an INTJ...<div>&nbsp;</div> INTJs account for about 1% of the population.<div>&nbsp;</div> I – Introversion preferred to Extraversion: INTJs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy).<div>&nbsp;</div> N – iNtuition preferred to Sensing: INTJs tend to be more abstract than concrete. They focus their attention on the big picture rather than the details and on future possibilities rather than immediate realities.<div>&nbsp;</div> T – Thinking preferred to Feeling: INTJs tend to value objective criteria above personal preference. When making decisions they generally give more weight to logic than to social considerations.<div>&nbsp;</div> J – Judgment preferred to Perception: INTJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability, which to perceptive types may seem limiting. <br />

I am a big feeler. And it's painful! :-)

Suma and Ami - That's why this one was so hard to write - because you are both thinking and feeling at the same time. I think it's more about what drives you, what your primary modus operandi is. <br /> Bob - you and I are really similar, I'm an INFJ. You're a very unique type, as an INTJ, you're in the "Rational" or "NT" category - Albert Einstein is considered to be in this category too - not bad company! I'm married to an NT, so I am hopefully learning more about them every day. <br /> Barb - I feel your pain ;-)

I also agree with Suma. "Thinking" can be very general.<br /> <a href="http://www.construclick.com.br" rel="nofollow">Construção e Reforma</a> <a href="http://torpedo.inf.br" rel="nofollow">Torpedo</a>
