Intelligent: “Having good understanding or a high mental capacity.”
Let me start off by saying, I do not believe that personality types has a huge play in deciding how intelligent you are. I believe genetics and environmental factors are the main influences on intelligence, although I do believe your personality type plays a very small part in intelligence also, and due to the high demand for this question, I shall answer it.
Let’s start by figuring out the type via the letters. Introverts are more likely to be intelligent than extroverts, as introverts spend more time figuring things out whilst extroverts don’t have the time or concentration to focus on these things. Introverts prefer to get their energy internally, and hence have far more time to think about serious issues which help to develop a high level of intelligence. Secondly, intuitive types spend more time thinking about deeper issues and analytical things, which is not done by sensors. I mean, would the person who has a deep intuition be better in a game of chess? Yes, and they would also be deemed more intelligent, whether this should be socially accepted or not. Thirdly, thinkers are regarded as more intelligent than feelers, as they keep their feelings out of decisions, and whilst working everything is done in a rational fashion. Finally, judgers are regarded as more intelligent as they spend more time focusing on the future than perceivers, and organization certainly helps when
trying to learn new things.
This article has proven that INTJ’s are regarded as the most intelligent type. INTJ’s are the type that discover new advancements in science, maths, etc. so it makes a lot of sense that they are regarded as the most intelligent. An example of an INTJ is Sir Isaac Newton, a fundamental influencing person on the field of science. He created three laws of motion for the world of physics, and is often regarded as one of the most intelligent scientists in history.
Well, there’s your answer everyone! Although this is a controversy question about whether intelligence can be influenced by MBTI, I have decided to answer it anyway, as many of you want to know the answer. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned! 😀
