ILIs are natural observers, who like to reflect on the world. They are able to grasp the completed vision of something quickly and from little data. They are also very capable at evaluating efficiency and resources needed to achieve a result.
These two abilities combined make them clearly see and have a tendency to contemplate the faults of something or someone. They are often characterized by a caustic and sceptical world view.
ILIs reject comfy environments and small sensual pleasures as insulting to their intelligence.
ILIs are unable to comprehend, control and express their moods and emotions, which makes them seem calm from the outside when they might be bursting from the inside.
ILIs seek people who would see their scepticism as a challenge and break through it. People who get the ILI to engage in a power struggle with them; people who would seem invincible to their sarcastic wit in the course of it and outmanoeuvre them.
When ILIs have their own Qaudra values developed, they are capable at responding to direct and covert pressure and enjoy the power play.
If their own Quadra values are developed, ILIs perceive abstract theoretizing as lacking drive and getting in the way of ambition, they also perceive structured theoretical thinking as rationalizations.
If the opposite Quadra values are developed, ILIs explore different paradigms and views, finding the multiplicity of perspectives intellectually stimulating.
