INTP Personality – Conclusion

INTPs’ intelligence and logical reasoning skills are a force to be reckoned with. Be it a minor debate or a life-changing decision, INTPs will find it easy to entertain multiple ideas and keep a cool head. This allows INTPs to overcome many challenging obstacles – yet they can be easily tripped up in areas where careful and rational thinking is more of a liability than an asset.

Whether it is finding (or keeping) a partner, making friends, reaching dazzling heights on the career ladder or learning to make difficult decisions, INTPs need to put in a conscious effort to develop their weaker traits and additional skills.

INTP personality

What you have read so far is just an introduction into the complex concept that is the INTP personality type. You may have muttered to yourself, "wow, this is so accurate it’s a little creepy" or "finally, someone understands me!" You may have even asked "how do they know more about me than the people I’m closest to?"

This is not a trick. You felt understood because you were. We’ve studied how INTPs think and what they need to reach their full potential. And no, we did not spy on you – many of the challenges you’ve faced and will face in the future have been overcome by other INTPs. You simply need to learn how they succeeded.

But in order to do that, you need to have a plan, a personal roadmap. The best car in the world will not take you to the right place if you do not know where you want to go.

Now we need to go much deeper into your personality type and answer "why?", "how?" and "what if?"

...Wow. This is quite accurate, eerily accurate.

I just want to say... I think I love almost everyone who has commented here. I read most of the pages and I've never taken a personality test that was this... accurate. I've hated social media since AIM where I would get bombarded with messages when I logged in so I just stopped logging in one day. I have a facebook I check maybe once a year and absolutely refuse to get twitter, snapchat, skype, and whatever other evil current trend is. I adore BBS and I think i'm addicted to reddit or anywhere else that gives lots of information about people where I do not have to interact or if I do choose to interact it is not instant. I don't have any true friends that are not online, have failed at every romantic relationship I've ever had due to me putting logic over feelings, and have been called an emotionless beast that is heartless and cruel by my family. I consider myself very stupid but somehow kept getting into most all the "smart" classes in school being a bottom performer with a low GPA (3 is pretty low when schools skew the results to get better overall numbers). I knew I was different when I was about five years old as well and also had penmanship problems and I had to take speech therapy for a few years (talking too fast and stuttering). Everyone called me shy when I was younger and I absolutely hate that term. Quiet is not shy people! I won my senior superlative for "shy" because no one knew or liked the truly shy people. I can do good penmanship but don't really care to write that slow when a keyboard is available. I love literature and hate people who can not spell. I judge anyone who uses "your" vs "you're" wrong and can't take the time to type out an extra one or two letters (no, know) (2, to) (k, ok) (insert random idiot slang here). One thing I have not read in these comments is about sarcasm. I love sarcasm and witty humor but I've noticed most people just think you are an asshole so these days I shut up. I get along the most with people who are constantly joking because they don't care about sensitivity and at the same time they piss me off because they can't take anything seriously and their jokes gets repetitive, unoriginal, and bland after a time. This is getting kind of long with only a one inch area to type so goodbye you 3%.

Eerily accurate. I have a feeling I'm a bit older (53) than other respondents here. I had trouble answering some of the question on group dynamics, relationships as they were to generalized and I didn't know how to interpret them. That's me :) I would be interested to know if the group population density is stable cross culturally as it relates to the nature/nurture debate. Is there a correlation to handedness (L/R)? Does anybody else here have penmanship problems? This was a major problem for me when I was in school. My handwriting was just illegible after about 3 sentences because it was trying desperately to keep up with my train of thought. When did to realize you were "weird". For me it was very young. Maybe 4-5 years old. To everybody out there that feels weird, remember, everybody is weird in their own way. Some just hide it better or have better work arounds.

I've always had bad penmanship as well. Even to the point of not being able to read my own writing. I've always known it was because my hand couldn't keep up with my brain. Now I know why.

I have the handwriting problem, too. Sometimes I even have a hard time reading it, despite being the one who wrote it. In class, I have to type notes or not take them at all. As for when I realized I was weird? That came fairly late for me. I grew up knowing I was fairly intelligent, but it took me a while to realize just how weird I am. In 7th grade, I finally understood just how different from most people I was, but unlike a lot of people, I fully embraced it. I became a proud nerd, and decided that being called "normal" as an insult. I've even become a world-class expert in possibly the "nerdiest" topic of all: Star Wars.

Looking at the comments it seems us INTPs usually have bad penmanship and/or a healthy amount of sarcasm/humor

I have to post a reply in "Other" because I'm not on Facebook. I hate Facebook. It's like carrying non-stop small talk around with you to access whenever where ever. I can't even stand listening to other people make small talk. Unless it is teeeerrible awkward, then it's wonderfully fun to watch. I just sometimes make the mistake of interrupting them to correct grammar or something similar and end up being pulled into the conversation. Fail. Ever see a cat fall into a bath tub, scratch up everything in its way, then run off soaking wet? Pretty much.

The only reason I'm still on Facebook is some of the mind games on my phone want me to log in to play. Otherwise I have no use for it. Except now I can tell the world why I am like I am. Linking my results to fb was my first fb post in 2 years.
