INJ Learning Style
INJs are extremely curious and intellectual children who need a wide variety of mental stimulation. When they are interested in a subject, they will naturally want to know everything about it. Teachers should be prepared to point INJ children towards sources where they can learn more about the subject.
INJ children don't do well with tasks that require following prescribed steps in a plan or rote memorization. They find these kinds of things extremely boring, and they will resist doing them. They also don't like to do things repetitively. Once they have done something once, they are done with it and want to move on to the next thing. To keep things interesting for the INJ, teachers should give them the basic theory and the desired outcome, and let them figure out how to get there on their own.
Teachers should realize the INJ's weakness of not always being aware of their environment, and recognize that if an INJ didn't hear the teacher, it doesn't necessarily mean that they weren't listening. Sometimes the INJ's private world overtakes the INJ to the point that they completely tune out their environment. As much patience as possible should be shown with this characteristic. INJs will develop some control over this as they grow older.
INJs love to come up with ideas, and naturally want to put their ideas into some kind of structure or plan. They want to do this on their own, with little or no direction. They highly prize their ideas and their competence at performing their projects, and are threatened by someone giving them too much direction. This is almost an insult to the INJ, who bases a great deal of their self-esteem on their independence.
INJs thrive doing independent projects that require creativity, such as science projects or writing projects. They will probably not enjoy group projects as much, although they are likely to be fine working with one partner on a project.
Answer the INJ's many questions as thoroughly as possible. If you don't know the answer to a question, be honest and tell them that you don't know. Offer possible avenues for discovering the answer, such as library research.
Present the rules and expectations clearly and consistently. INJs naturally crave structure and order. Although they don't want to be told exactly how to do something, they need to understand any rules clearly.
INJ Special Needs
INJ兒童需要大量的時間獨處。他們將大部分精力投注自身豐富的想像中，因此需要極多的獨處時間來回覆能量。在學校裡待了一整天后，INJ可能一回家就直 奔自己的房間獨自待著。應當尊重你的孩子的需要，並明白等他們自己待夠了，才能準備好出來與你交流。別逼著他們待在你或其他人周邊，除非他們已經有了足夠 的獨處時間。如果INJ沒有機會獨處，他們會表現得暴躁易怒，精疲力竭。
INJ children need a good amount of time alone. They get most of their energy from within themselves and their rich imaginations, so they need adequate time alone to recharge their batteries. After a long day of school, the INJ may head to their room to spend some time alone. Respect this need of your child's, and understand that once they have spent time alone they will be ready to interact with you. Don't push them to be around yourself or others until they have spent some quality alone time. An INJ who doesn't get the chance to spend any time alone will be irritable, cranky and tired.
INJs who have made up their minds about something can be quite stubborn and unwilling to compromise. When faced with an INJ who has "dug in their heels" about something, take some time to present them with clear and valid alternatives to their way of thinking. This will help the INJ to not become overly rigid, pompous and unbending in their views.
在社交上，青春期前的INJ兒童通常會相當有所保留，甚至會被一大堆人嚇到。在真正參與其中間，他們樂於稍作觀望。最好別在他們準備好之前，就拽著他們投 入社交中。允許他們先觀望看看，直到自己願意時再投入。如果你是非常外向而樂於交際的成人，別指望你家的INJ孩子跟你一樣。INJ通常喜歡跟人一對一的 交流，喜歡擁有三五知己勝過擁有一大堆點頭之交。當INJ再長大些，他（她）將會變得更社會化。與此同時，也要明白你的孩子在面對一大群人時並不感到舒 服，別讓他們因此而內疚。若你的孩子害怕獨自面對人群，那就陪著他去面對，或是讓他在這樣的場合叫上個好友。
Socially, pre-teen INJ's are usually fairly reserved and may be intimidated by large numbers of people. They like to watch for awhile before participating. It's best not to push the INJ to interact socially before they are ready. Allow them to watch first, and jump in when they want to. If you are a very extraverted or gregarious adult, don't expect the same behavior your INJ child. INJs usually prefer to interact with one person at a time, and enjoy having a couple of close friends rather than a number of acquaintances. As the INJ gets a bit older, he or she will probably become more social. In the meantime, understand that your child is probably uncomfortable with large groups of people, and don't make them feel guilty for that fear. If your child is afraid of walking into large social situations alone, you might arrange to walk in with your child, or have your child go to the event with a friend.
對於仍在進行中的課題，給出太多的建議或反饋反倒是對INJ的創造力的干擾。大部分INJ對於實際完成課題的興趣，來源於他們想要證實自己的內在的意象與 獨立性。任何外界的「干預」都會對INJ造成困擾，甚至可能導致他們懷疑自己的想法。在任何情況下，這都會導致他們失去對課題的興趣並放棄它。最好是在 INJ的課題完成之前，先別去評判。
Too many suggestions or feedback on a project while it is still going on may interfere with the INJ's creative energy. Much of the interest in actually doing the project comes from the INJ's drive to prove their inner visions and independence. Any "interference" from the external world will confuse the INJ, and it may cause them to doubt themselves or their idea. In any event, it will usually cause them to lose interest in the project and abandon it. It's probably best to wait until an INJ's project is finished before commenting.
Talk through their ideas with them one-on-one. This will help the INJ to put their ideas into context within the external world. The INJ doesn't naturally have a high awareness of how their intensely personal visions fit into the world. Getting them into the habit of talking through their ideas while they are young will help them develop the ability to apply their ideas realistically and effectively.
The "Missing" Letter
成年人的人格類型用四個字母來描述，與此同時對於7-12歲的孩童我們用三個字母來描述。那個缺失的字母是怎麼回事兒？它在那兒，只是我們通常在13歲以 前沒法確定它到底是什麼。INJ兒童會成長為INTJ（科學家型）或INFJ（護衛者型）。他們究竟會選擇思考或是情感來輔助他們的直覺傾向，在這個成長 階段並不明顯。你會看到他們會反覆地操練思考與情感功能，直至在更喜歡的那個功能上安頓下來。對有些孩子，我們可能會識別出他們「缺失」的字母，但大多數 孩子還得等過些年才能確定。
Adult personality types have four letters, while for children aged 7-12 we use three letter types. What happened to the missing letter? It's there, we just can't usually determine what it is until after a person is 13 years old. INJ kids will grow up to be either INTJ "Scientists" or INFJ "Protectors". At this stage in their development, it's not obvious whether they will choose Thinking or Feeling to complement their Intuition preference. You will see the child practicing both Thinking and Feeling as they settle down into their preferred function. In some children, it's possible to distinguish their "missing" letter, but for many kids we just have to wait a few years to be sure.
