ENTJs might be better at finding clients, yes, but I think INTJs would be more suited to the actual work.  And plenty of Is can be very outgoing and charming when it suits them, Hank.  ;)

Also, I don't know, but I don't think finding clients is a huge part of what an average associate does at a larger firm or a defense-oriented firm, anyway.

Agreed on the second point, but one must always think about moving up the ranks.  Rainmaker is where all the money is. 

And I know Is can be outgoing and charming.   :)

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

perhaps post a free test that judges this? That way we can all compare?

Here, take this test.. it will tell you your Myers-Briggs personality type..  I am also an INTJ!  Which apparently is the "mastermind" personality ;)

Hmm.... I am INFJ. Ha! Now my dad can believe me when I tell him I'm shy! ;)
I may be crazy with my friends, but the point before being friends is quite awkward. LOL

# slightly expressed intuitive personality
# slightly expressed feeling personality
# moderately expressed judging personality

I'm really surprised that an "introverted" personality is suitable for the law, but there it is... a career in law suggested!

Did you expect introverts to be drawn to fields likes medicine, education, and psychology?

INTJ here, but very weak on the N and T parts (and very strong on the I and J).

Yes, but I think that goes for any INTJ, it's a description of INTJ personalities.

It seems like lawyers need people skills as well.
