A Book Devoted to INTJs!

The Secret Lives of INTJs is a 241 page long e-book devoted to all aspects of the enigmatic INTJ personality type. 

Inside you'll get to meet INTJs like Isaac Newton and Professor Moriarty; look at some of the unexpected aspects of the type (why do INTJs like Star Trek so much?); and learn why academic success can be a double edged sword for the gifted INTJ. 

If that's not enough, we'll think about burning questions like, "Why do INTJs like to straighten crooked objects?" and "Are INTJs good at killing vampires?" and even "Why are you INTJs so &^#@ stubborn?"  Rest assured, it will be a fascinating journey.

So stop sitting there in your chair, fingers steepled in contemplation, and get the book!
