Here it is. But a few points beforehand:
1. This is neither exhaustive nor based on thorough research. It is more of my imagination, personal experiences and is probably incomplete.
2. You are free to add to this description, or to criticise it constructively.

The Complexities of the Analyst (INTj uncovered)
Ti Ne Fi Se Fe Si Te Ni
Behind that cold, rational mask there is a hidden sea of turbulence. The Analyst’s life is dominated by a) his desire to control his emotions, and b) many internal complexities and paradoxes.
Usually, the child Analyst is extroverted. He uses his Fe and Se a lot. Commonly, he will have many friends, and probably will live a life of socialising. And he will not mind this. The Analyst can observe, with a ironic wit, the idiosyncrasies of life and can, to a degree, empathise and consider other people well due to his Ne.
However, he matures and realises that the life of socialising does not provide him with what he wants. Thus, his Ti asserts himself. He withdraws, becomes more reserved. The stage at which he does this is variable.
Once the Analyst withdraws, his life becomes a battle between the Ti and Fe.
This battle creates tension. The Analyst will always view it that he became too panicky, or smiled too much. His Ne does not help at this stage. He cannot express himself in a controlled manner. He introverts logically, but extroverts intuitively. Thus, he is either well-controlled (in his opinion) or wild and uncontrolled (when extroverted).
This is both a source of tension and confusion. The Analyst, usually not being religious, and being future-orientated, may begin to question his purpose in life. He seems to have no set personality, in his opinion. He tends to view the more serious side of life. His Ti means that he prefers to remain aloof, and thus he can feel lonely and without guidance.
The aloofness is a product of the Ti-Si relationship. The Analyst associates, in his youth, idiots who carelessly risk their bodies to socialising. Since he has no wish to injure his body (out of the Si, and hidden agenda of remaining healthy) then he detaches and continues to associate friendliness with threat to the Si. Although this, by no means, should be interpreted that the Analyst cannot make friends, it is just as if he is afraid of socialising with common people, the practical jokers.
There is another reason. The Analyst’s Se is not well-developed. This means that he has something of an inability to assert himself. Even if he shouts, his voice is not strong. It also makes him more susceptible to bullying - he prefers an environment where there is no discomfort from the external world, and bullying targets Se very well.
Continuing with the theme of Ti, it allows him to make ruthless and impersonal decisions. But he will forever chide himself, because the Ti-Ne relationship produces a need for justice. If his Ti wants to make cold decisions, his Ne justice and Fe warmth oppose him. He does not like to put ruthless acts into action (in others words, personally doing dirty deeds) because of the Se and because it may well be unhealthy (because there is risk).
The Analyst will usually try to make it appear as though his sensing is as strong as his intuition, which seems to be a root cause of his early extroversion (expressing Se so that it appear strong enough not to be a weakness). This causes another constant battle. He sometimes finds it difficult to distinguish between the two, and this can cause a ‘S-N identity disorder.’
Finally, there can also be a T-F identity disorder produced as well. His Ne allows him to consider other people well. Usually he is sensitive in dealing with himself and others, due to the Si, Ne and the fact that he does not wish to harm others (he believes that they will have the same Se function-problem). Thus, he seems to empathise. However, he must control it, because his Ti tells him to. This is another source of confusion.
In conclusion, the Analyst’s personality is one of disorder behind his remote, detached mask.
