INTJs are some of the most intellectual and intense children you’ll ever come across. They are analytical, watchful, and driven by a complex inner vision of how things will or could be. They are rare children, making up only 2% of the population, a fact which simultaneously pleases them yet can make them feel misunderstood and isolated. INTJs are independent and pragmatic, traits which make them appear more mature or grown-up than their peers. Parents may feel intrigued yet concerned about their INTJ child. These children are known for their high IQs, their rich imaginations and complex thoughts, but they keep many of their visions and insights internalized. This can leave parents wishing to know more, concerned that their child is “too serious” or spends too much time in their own head. These private children have a plethora of gifts and talents, but they can often be misunderstood by their peers and by parents who aren’t used to such a rare personality. Young INTJs often have an advanced vocabulary, read earlier than their peers, and work fiercely to achieve their goals and understand new ideas. They are intensely curious, and will ask ‘why’ about anything that interests or confuses them. This leads us to one of the first childhood struggles INTJs are likely to face.

Misunderstood Curiosity:
INTJs are extremely independent and curious, even as children. They long to understand why things are the way they are, and to know the core truth behind every rule. They don’t have an innate sense of respect for authority, and they are unlikely to accept anything just because someone older than them “says so”. They will want to know the logic and reasoning behind decisions, rules, and statements. They can be seen as very argumentative children, when in fact their questions and challenges are a natural part of the learning process for them. This can cause them to be disciplined to an excessive degree by parents who want them to accept their leadership without question

frustrating.

People constantly treat you like a moron because you’re a child. They seem to assume you either don’t have the mental skills to appreciate reason, or don’t deserve and explanation for their reasoning.

It’s patronising and frustrating.

I explained to a friend of mine with an INTJ daughter “she’s not questioning you to be wilful or to test your authority, she’s questioning you because she wants to understand your reasoning for making a decision so it will make sense to her”.
