Like Robert Walton, Victor is also an INTJ. They both value reason and the scientific method, over feelings and emotion. But there are noticeable differences between the two. In this case, Victor’s percentages are much different than Robert’s. Victor is, Introvert(16%) iNtuitive(28%) Thinking(34%) Judging(3%). The way they differ, is that Victor would be more analytical than Robert as he is a scientist, but has a smaller sense of adventure as Robert is a sea Captain. Robert is supposed to be able to make wise decisions and understand the cause and effect of situations because it is his job to have the best sense of reason. Victor on the other hand is compulsive and acts on the spot, and rarely considers the possible outcome of certain events. The fact that he created the abomination he did, is irresponsible and wreckless, a trait we see in most Sci-Fi movie scientists like “Jurassic Park” or “The Incredible Hulk”. In both cases, a scientist got too ambitious and a perfect killing machine was born leaving only death and destruction in their wake.
INTJs are perfectionists and detail oriented. They endlessly tire to improve upon anything that concerns them. Anyone in a working environment, whether at school on a project or at an actual job, considered to be “slacking,” even superiors, will see them as lesser and they will be made aware of this. Although they are capable of feeling strong emotional ties for others (but most often a select few), and have the ambition to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, many INTJs find it difficult to grasp certain social rituals; such as flirting (which most types consider half the fun of a relationship) and small talk. They tend to have little patience for and a small understanding of these things. INTJs do not always have the same kind of natural and visable empathy that many INFJs (Feeling) do.

Generally, INTJs tend to succeed in an environment that presents intellectual challenges, and require a creative approach, such as Data Analyzers or Scientists. Due to the characteristics mentioned above, INTJs are most commonly found in technological companies, particularly in research and development. Other jobs among these are corporate lawyers, and financial institutions.
In INTJs, interest in learning a subject revolves around finding the answer to the question, “Why is this so?” The clearer and deeper the answer this type receives during the learning process, the greater their interest in the topic, and the greater their desire to delve deeper into the subject. Their desire to study something is driven by a search for ideas that can answer not only fundamental questions, but also practical questions of popular interest.
INTJs are mostly comfortable while carrying out a conversation. They are neither pretentious nor are they academic, but might be wary of becoming quick acquaintances. They can often come up against situations that require soft skills such as patience and attentiveness. INTJs appreciate the established rules of communications although at times they may see these rules as conventional. INTJs may find it difficult to express themselves about their deep feelings in their soul. such as; topics of love or lyrical poetry, can fail to evoke a strong emotional response in them.
