Battle can mean a lot of things.... If you mean in the sense of general conflict most INTJs prefer to undermine and encircle than confront directly. If forced into confrontation they are likely to be pointed and direct, but typically the ultimate victory for an INTJ over someone they are in "battle" with, is to be placed in a position where they can completely ignore them. If you mean in the context of armed conflict INTJs would rely on having built systems to defend themselves. This could take the context of personal training and discipline such as a formal martial art, as a poster earlier mentioned, or as a commander through systems of warfare. Successful INTJ generals such as Sun Tzu or Gustaphus Adolfus would build systems of warfare; complex guiding systems of military structures and principles that insitutionalised victory. INTJs should always remember that they are not ENTJ. They are not Napoleons and do not read battles as spritely or act with the same decisiveness. An INTJ commander in the battlefield is looking to find if their system of warfare "works" and if not how to improve it. But as Robert De Niro's INTJ character in Ronin indicates; the wisest of us commence each battle first with a plan of our escape.
