Architect (INTJ) - LEO

Who is an Architect (INTJ)?

Architects are individuals with the Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking and Judging personality traits. They tend to be intelligent and competent people with high expectations on both themselves and people around them. Being independent thinkers, architects are often viewed as effective problem solvers.

It can be lonely at the top. As one of the rarest personality types – and one of the most dramatic ones – Architect/Leos are rational and quick-witted, creative and dominant. They may struggle to find people who can keep up with their nonstop analysis of everything around them and their “king of the jungle” approach to life. As natural born leaders they will easily take initiative and use their minds solving even the most difficult problems, but when they become too attached to their own achievements and the way other people see them, they´re an easy target, ready to be taken down. These people derive much of their self-esteem from their knowledge. They are highly energetic and tend to always be busy. The best possible situation for them is to be their own bosses, since they also might find it difficult to work with other people, who they often find inferior and in their way. They love to be surrounded by modern and trendy things and might have a difficult time handling money. It quite easily slips through their fingers, partly because of their extremely generous nature. They like helping people close to them and although it might not be the most financially smart move, it makes them feel good.

In love these people want to be worshipped like a king or queen and expect to be the center of someone’s world. This requires acceptance of their flaws and admiration of their qualities. They value truth and depth, many common social practices – from small talk to white lies – may seem pointless or downright stupid to them. As a result, they may inadvertently come across as rude or even offensive when they’re only trying to be honest. This is someone who has a clear understanding of boundaries between sex and love and it might be difficult to fight through their hard exterior and reach their emotional core and a meaningful relationship.

They like to win and want to be successful, not just inventive. They bring a single-minded drive to their passion projects, applying the full force of their insight, logic, and willpower no matter what challenges might arise along the way. And heaven help anyone who tries to slow them down by enforcing pointless rules or offering poorly thought-out criticism. People with this personality type are often most attractive when they aren’t trying too hard. This personality type comes with a strong independent streak. Architect/Leos don’t mind acting alone, perhaps because they don’t like waiting around for others to catch up with them. They also generally feel comfortable making decisions without asking for anyone else’s input. At times, this lone-wolf behavior can come across as insensitive, as it fails to take into consideration other people’s thoughts, desires, and plans.
