The Female 5w4 INTJ – Personality Components?

The female 5w4 INTJ is made up of the following personality components!

The 5w4 Enneagram – The Philosopher

Possessing more traits associated with the type 5 rather than type 4 enneagram, the ‘Philosopher’ although reserved in their behaviour is quite the thinker and reflector! They like to take their time when it comes to pondering over things that amaze or fascinate them. Furthermore, they like to do this in a peaceful and quiet environment rather than brainstorm over it with others. They are indeed introverted because they need alone time not only to think but to also reflect and recharge their social battery.

Compared to type 5 enneagrams, they are more emotional and expressive. Hence, they do possess a more human element and do not just focus on the hard areas of life or use simple facts and figures to explain phenomena. This is because they realize the importance of human intervention and influence. Also, these individuals are quite expressive and like to do things in a manner that not only represents their opinions or beliefs but also feels comfortable to them.

Because of their nature and how they think or feel about others, these enneagram types may seem a bit distant – they remain guarded and withdrawn from others. This is not only because they need time alone but they prefer to keep a distance from other people. At the same time, they are very much open to gaining new skills and knowledge to increase their knowledge base as well as the resources – in the form of skills – that will help them strengthen their own standing and make them more capable of even greater tasks.

Despite their introverted side, they love to explore new avenues! They will explore to find more opportunities, learn the truth regarding people or things that interest them and also just for the sake of it. They love exploring and they don’t mind doing this alone because it allows them to have the chance to think and reflect while on such ‘missions’.

The Fear of the Philosopher

The main fear this enneagram type has is that of being helpless and incompetent. They do not want to be in a position where they cannot help themselves or defend themselves for that matter! Also, they are scared that they might feel useless. The 5w4 enneagram does not want to be in a position where they are not competent for a certain task or be of no use to others!

They often compensate for this by spending a great amount of time figuring out how to develop new skills and finding new resources of knowledge. This makes them feel not only worthy or competent because they have achieved new skills and are engaged with new sources of knowledge but also they appreciate that they are currently busy doing something they love in peace and harmony.

The Basic Desire

The basic desire of the type 5w4 enneagram stems from the fact that they want to feel competent and worthy. They want to be able to master a set of skills that they can use to not only ensure their independence and strong standing but also their ability to help others.

The type 5w4 enneagram wants to help and guide others too and they believe they can only do this if they have the right skills and knowledge. Hence they also desire that they possess a number of skills and much knowledge from different walks of life.

INTJs – The Dominant Functions

INTJs are made up of four functions namely introversion, intuition, thinking and judging. We will discuss each of these one by one to develop a deeper understanding of this personality type.

Introverts can be defined as ‘measured’ people. They think very carefully before they speak and when they speak it is limited. They are better able to process information by thinking over it in their head instead of participating in a brainstorming session. Also, their behaviours reflect their inner world; when they think they automatically become quiet, more focused and reflective while doing so hence their thinking and behaviour is in sync. Hence, don’t get overwhelmed when they don’t reply as fast as you want them to or go quiet. They just need time to think over what you said or what it is they want!

People who are intuitive are known for making many discoveries in world history and this does not happen by just ordinary thinking; they must go beyond the scope they are given! They give value to their vision, dreams and even imagination and combine that with what they already have in their hands.

When it comes to intuitive people, they are indeed gems; they have dreams and visions they want to achieve and they will not let anything stop them 

INTJs give weightage to their thoughts and what seems structured or logical rather than the emotions they feel for others. Sometimes this can be detrimental and they find difficulty in understanding the emotional complaints or requests their loved ones have. People with this personality type focus on values like truth and justice and prefer to see the logic or aim of things. They can be described as task oriented rather than people oriented.

People who have the judging function are very particular about having schedules; they want to know what needs to be done when and prefer not to have too many surprises in their routines because it affects their work and tasks they need to get done. They will appreciate a person who has much of the things organized and already done.

The 5w4 INTJ Female Personality Type: Top Traits

In this section we will take a look at traits that make the female 5w4 INTJ stand out!


Yes, the female version of this personality type is indeed intelligent. Not only does she amass the necessary knowledge but she also knows how to use it very well! These women naturally appear smart – it shows on their face! Why? The way they conduct themselves reflects their intelligence!

They are cautious in whatever they do and do not take quick decisions. In fact, they prefer to take their time over things no matter the pressure on them – this signifies quite some wisdom and intelligence.

Furthermore, they understand the situation very well and know the right questions to ask or what to expect in a new scenario. This is because they are well aware of what is going on. They are like this because they learn from their experiences and read about how things work. In simple words, they are people who end up doing the necessary homework!

Passive or Distant

This is not your typical woman who would fall back on her family or friends for any type of support. They like to go it alone as far as they can go. Even in tense or serious situations they have the habit of going through things alone no matter how much the stress is!

Instead of breaking down in front of others or admitting they are wrong because of the state of confusion they are in, they accept what has happened and consider it a consequence of the risk or decisions they took.

They are brave enough to stand up to their problems even if that means going through the pain of them. The 5w4 INTJ female may not be confrontational and may appear to put distance between herself and others – this does not mean she has admitted defeat but that is how they handle problems.

Logic Oriented

For this woman, things need to make sense. She just won’t take things at face value until she sees the logic behind them! She may seem accepting and understanding of things but inside she is not convinced. This is because it is necessary for ends to meet and there shouldn’t be any loopholes in the explanations she is given or what she sees unfolding in front of her eyes.


Women who fall under this personality type are quite observant. They like to pay attention to the small details and this may explain why they are smart, logical and of course wise!


As we mentioned before, this woman is someone who likes to be independent. They want to feel that inside and also assert it to others so they understand her and what she stands for. She does not want to be viewed as someone who is dependent on others but can support herself.
