Logician (ISTJ) - CAPRICORN

Who is a Logician (INTP)?

Logicians are individuals with the Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be intelligent, logical and tolerant people, known for their creativity and insightful observations. Being thinking-oriented, logicians usually rely on logic rather than emotion when making decisions.

Logician/Capricorn pride themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, they have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history. This is a personality combo that represents time and responsibility, and its representatives are traditional and often very serious by nature. These individuals possess an inner state of independence that enables significant progress both in their personal and professional lives. They are masters of self-control and have the ability to lead the way, make solid and realistic plans, and manage many people who work for them at any time. They will learn from their mistakes and get to the top based solely on their experience and expertise.

They love patterns, and spotting discrepancies between statements could almost be described as a hobby, making it a bad idea to lie to a Logician/Capricorn. This makes it ironic that their word should always be taken with a grain of salt – it’s not that they are dishonest, but people with this personality combo tend to share thoughts that are not fully developed, using others as a sounding board for ideas and theories in a debate against themselves rather than as actual conversation partners. This may make them appear unreliable, but in reality no one is more enthusiastic and capable of spotting a problem, drilling through the endless factors and details that encompass the issue and developing a unique and viable solution than these people – just don’t expect punctual progress reports. Not only do they focus on the material world, but they have the ability to use the most out of it. Sometimes they’re too stubborn to move from one perspective or point in a relationship. They have a hard time accepting differences of other people that are too far from their character, and out of fear might try to impose their traditional values aggressively.

They tend to be extremely passionate in their romantic relationships. It may take time for them to get involved with a partner to the point that they feel free and relaxed, but when they finally do, the love and passion they feel will be evident every day. They have an interesting mixture of traits that often pleasantly surprise their partners. People with this personality combo are always full of ideas, but they have few opportunities to explore their more romantic notions. As with any of their theories, they love sharing with others, and in finally meeting someone where romantic thoughts are appropriate, they show themselves to be excited, enthusiastic, and even playful, flirting with word-play and intellectual games. It is not easy to win over the attention and the heart of a Logician/Capricorn, but once their walls break and their heart melts they stay committed for a lifetime.

The running theme for Logician/Capricorn is their desire for solitude, need for intellectual stimulation, and the satisfaction of the final piece of a puzzle clicking into place. Whether in subordinate or management positions, with colleagues or working alone, these privileges and the freedom to pursue them unfettered by social obligations and progress reports are about all people with the Logician/Capricorn personality combo look for in their workplace. Though they may scoff at the notion, they actually function best when paired with another person. Their position determines which personality type best fits their needs, but their tendency to live in their heads and vent inspiration and creativity seemingly at random demands the presence of an implementer to ensure that no stroke of genius goes unnoticed.
