Charisma is definately an attribute when it comes to leadership qualities. The ability to relate to people and to feel the atmosphere of the audience is a must. Additionally, many of the world's greatest leaders (and not so great leaders i.e. Hitler) also had a good insight into the psyche of the broad masses. This is a quality which is not generally associated with INTJ's but rather INFJ's. Other personal attributes which could be useful are oratory skills and the ability to be persuasive and manipulate your audience. There are many more qualities I could list but it could get quite lengthy.
Lol, that's hilarious. I have to say as an INFJ my aspirations have been a little bit more modest but I have ocassionally taught about it. INFJ + INTJ (people skills + objectivity) could be a winning combination!! ---------- Post added 03-12-2013 at 03:53 PM ---------- *Thought*
INTJ Wannabe replied to Straylight's topic in Gender and AttractionHmmmmm, If you look at this statement from an evolutionary perspective then your work colleague is probably not far off the mark. Historically, men were hunter gatherers and had the resources which were needed for survival whereas women were responsible for having and raising children. In order to ensure survival women would ideally want to mate with the most dominant member of the group (Physically as well as in temperament) as they were most likely to have an abundance of resources. As dominance as an emotion is associated with high tetesterone levels which makes men more agressive and competive, this would also make them more possesive over their partners. So it seems that from an evolutionary stand point, women who were possessed/dominated were more likely to survive. We probably to some degree retain this instinct.
