One Myers-Briggs® Celebrity INTJ Personality Type is computer programmer, internet entrepreneur, and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.

Examining his life and career shows just how much he personifies the qualities of the Myers-Briggs test INTJ Personality Type.

INTJ Personality Types use their Intuition function to take in information by looking at the big picture. This leads the INTJ Type to a preference for developing complex structures and visions. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Although most famous for co-founding Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has been interested in developing complex structures to help people connect since he was a young child. He created a software program that allowed communication between computers at his household and his father’s dental clinic — an “instant messenger” before the advent of AOL instant messaging that would follow.

INTJ Personality Types are also known for communicating and expressing themselves using their Thinking preference. They take the creative insight that they gain from their Intuition preference and translate it into logical decisions and opinions. Their Thinking and Judging preference come together to communicate these decisions and opinions in a clear and organized manner.  When problems arise, INTJ Types assess the issues with a critical eye, quickly identifying any potential problems, having no qualm with being tough and decisive to get the issues resolved. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Zuckerberg saw a need for a platform for web-based application development. This led to the development of the Facebook Platform that eventually grew to having more than 800,000 developers worldwide. Anytime a hurdle would pop up, Mark Zuckerberg would analyze a logical solution based on his overall vision.

MBTI Test INTJ Types and extensive vision are also intimately related. They are known to be excellent long-range planners and often rise to leadership roles in organizations. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Ever since finding the inspiration for Facebook, Zuckerberg has always had a grand vision for his social networking site and branching company. He foresaw the huge potential of Facebook when he declined a $1 Billion purchase bid from Yahoo; a move most thought of as crazy at the time. The brilliance of Facebook lies in both the simplicity of its initial goal as well as the grand scale of its execution. Mark Zuckerberg said it best when explaining Facebook’s origins, “Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission – to make the world more open and connected.1 ” A simple concept, executed on the grandest scale.

Myers-Briggs INTJ Personality Types are known for being great at planning ahead and also have a tendency for rising to positions of leadership wherever they choose to focus their energies. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Famous Myers-Briggs INTJ Personality Type Arnold Schwarzenegger has filled many roles throughout his famous life, including world champion bodybuilder, actor, and politician. In each of these roles, he has reached high levels of success and leadership. Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a seven-time Mr. Olympia, a top-billing action movie star, and even the Governor of California. From his early childhood in Austria, he had a focused mission to get out of his limiting situation, come to America, and become rich and famous.

The MBTI Test INTJ Type is also strongly independent, tending to trust their own perceptions and judgments a lot more than those of others. It is this quality of the INTJ Type that has helped Arnold Schwarzenegger reach the levels of success that he is known for. When his father and social upbringing tried to get him to conform, he rebelled and forced his way into the United States. When agents told him that he was too weird looking, his accent was too strong, and his name was too long for acting, he never gave up. When people said that audiences wouldn’t take an ex-bodybuilder and action movie star seriously in politics, he pushed ahead. Arnold never gave up, never listened to his harshest critics, and he won. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Myers-Briggs INTJ Personality Types are known for seeing things from a world-wide perspective and tend to have a clear vision of future possibilities. (Myers, CPP. 1998)

Theoretical physicist and Famous Myers-Briggs INTJ Personality Type Stephen Hawking has spent his entire professional life working on understanding the universe. If he believed it was possible, he would pursue it, leading to exceptional progress in theoretical physics and, more specifically, black hole physics.

The MBTI Test INTJ Type is also known for trusting their insightful connections, regardless of the popular opinion of the day. Throughout his professional career, Stephen Hawking never feared going against the grain of popular opinion. Whether it was his theories on black holes or on the origin and functionality of our universe, Stephen would often place bets with colleagues on controversial theoretical matters. Sometimes he would win, and sometimes he would lose, but it never deterred him from standing behind what he believed to be true until he was proven wrong. His lifelong commitment to understanding the universe, and humanity’s role in it, has helped push public interest into the stars and beyond. (Myers, CPP. 1998)
