      I am a INTJ too! That is a very INTJ comment you made. INTJs naturally try to optimize their relationships, so being aware of your tendencies and compensating would be a way to optimize a relationship.

      I am an INTJ and find that if you are aware of your natural tendencies you can compensate to work with other "types" very effectively. Great summary hub!
