What makes the INTJ such a notable personality when it comes to famous people? It’s because their ideas are profound, controversial, and they just don’t care what others think about them. Content to let others lead until those leaders show their incompetence, INTJs often do more than just have big ideas. They also turn those big ideas into reality.
1. Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg may arguably be the most influential person on the planet right now. He might not be a world leader, but he does oversee a website that hosts 1.9 billion profiles and is every growing. Zuckerberg is described as having imperial tendencies and being cold and distant, but also having a long-term vision. People thought he was crazy for turning down $1 billion from Yahoo. Look what happened when he did.
2. Elon Musk.
As part of the PayPal founding group, Musk help to create the foundation of what the internet would become today. He’s then taken that success and funneled it into a number of additional ventures, such as Tesla and SpaceX, that people thought were crazy at the time. Musk sees the world in a unique way and his work as an investor and entrepreneur has helped to accomplish his visions that were beyond the dreams of many.
3. Bobby Fischer.
Fischer is a classic example of the “attitude” that INTJs are known to have. Often called the greatest chess player of all time, his most famous game might have come at the age of 20 when he didn’t even lose a piece during the US Championship. He quit school at the age of 16 because kids were “stupid,” but teachers were “even stupider.” At one point he even had a warrant out for his arrest because of an income tax dispute.
4. Nikola Tesla.
Tesla created ideas that were so revolutionary that not only did they change the entire manufacturing sector of the United States, but some of his inventions and observations are still kept classified by the US government. He saw a future that was very different than what others saw and that was reflected in his work. To this day, there may still be elements of what Tesla did that are not possible because he was so far ahead of his time.
Famous people with INTJ personality might seem arrogant and brash, but they have the intelligence to back up their perspective. They might not be warm and approachable people, but they do have incredible ideas which change the world now and often well into the future.
