Introverts often prefer jobs with less interpersonal interaction. Consider research-based positions in laboratories or universities. Working from home can be another great option for introverted people.
Intuitive types may feel more comfortable with jobs that allow them to access their subconscious. While creative positions are the obvious choice here, you should also look at jobs that are more art than science. Many financial jobs require that you get a feel for the ebbs and flows of market fluctuations.
Thinking personalities like positions that involve logic and reason. While this can be at odds with their intuitions at times, these aspects can work together as well. Theoretical mathematics involves both parts of this personality.
Judging means creating structure to organize the chaos that is life. This is an asset in almost every industry and particularly useful in a teaching position.
Overall, INTJs should look into research scientist, professor, and financial analyst jobs as positions that work with their type. If you look at the other aspects, you may find other jobs that appeal to you.

INTJ stands for Introversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judging, and is among the rarest of the 16 personality types from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory.
It is very important to understand that INTJ is a personality type, which is not the same thing as a personality trait. The difference is a personality trait is stable over time, which unlike a personality type, changes very little as a result of life experiences. Therefore, one of the major shortcomings of the MBTI is that it can and often does deliver different results even after just a few years.
Try not to regard your MBTI personality type as deterministic. It’s a snapshot of who you are now, and can provide valuable information in helping sort out your career options. But it’s not a destiny. So, don’t think of yourself as limited to a certain number of jobs over your entire career just because at one random point along the journey you tested INTJ.
