Interviews & Speeches

Interviews and speeches are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice Konrad’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other INTJs.


Although a careful viewer should be wary of potential errors and misrepresentations, a person’s type shines through in the work they perform as well, which for historical figures is often most accessible to study through documentaries.  Notice the choices, reasoning, and approach Konrad used in his political career.  What light can this shed on the mind of INTJs in general?
