This situation can be exacerbated by the presence of a sibling, particularly a female sibling who meets the “normal” criteria of being feminine and empathetic.The INTJ girl-child may compete with her sibling for her parents’ attention by becoming a perfectionist and arrogant.Many INTJ females will become competitive in their teenage years.
Anyone trying to form a close relationship with an INTJ woman will have to pass the formidable mental/emotional defenses that she has erected to cope with being misunderstood.
This lack of acceptance from other females will likely encourage the INTJ girl to primarily, or even exclusively, befriend boys throughout her childhood.
It might also lead to the beginnings of INTJ social anxiety.
You’re unlikely to find an INTJ female, especially if they don’t want to be found, due to the INTJ preference for staying in quiet places where they can enjoy privacy and time alone. The female INTJ’s childhood might appear harsh and difficult.
Despite a complete lack of interest in empathy or “girly” activities, it is at times necessary for the INTJ girl-child to pretend to be “normal” in order to please her parental authority figures.
