INTP Personality – Conclusion

Armed with a powerful intellect and vivid imagination, INTPs can overcome or outmaneuver obstacles that seem unbeatable to most. At the same time, their many quirks, such as often unconstrained rationalism, lead to many misunderstandings. Those misunderstandings end here. What you have read so far is just an introduction – we have a great deal more to tell you about the INTP personality type.

At some point in reading through your results, you probably hit a tipping point. You went from trademark INTP skepticism to “huh...” to “wait, what?” You may even be a little uncomfortable because you are really not used to being understood, even by the people you’re closest to.

Chances are, you’ve accepted that as part of who you are, and maybe even grown proud of it. But embracing that disconnection isn’t a requirement for INTPs. It’s a misused defense mechanism, leading you down a lonely, inefficient path – gaining insight into yourself and others is so much more rewarding.

Logician (INTP) personality

This is no date-of-birth gimmick, and no, we did not spy on you – rather, we’ve spent years studying INTPs’ life stories, experiences, and patterns in hundreds of our surveys. Step by step, insight by insight, we discovered how those who share your qualities and outlook have overcome the challenges they’ve faced. You are a unique individual, but you are not alone in this. It’s wise to learn from others’ experiences – and we’d really like to share those insights with you.

As you move forward into the e-books and interactive courses we offer, we go much deeper into the INTP mind. We answer not just “what”, but “why?”, “how?” and “what if?” Why do you act the way you do? How do you find motivation and inspiration? What if you moved beyond fear to pursue what you secretly want to achieve in life?

We can show you how to use your strengths to unlock your exceptional potential and avoid common pitfalls, while also staying true to who you are – after all, that’s the point. To see how you can grow to be the person you know you’re capable of being, in ways that finally feel right – read on.

Wow I feel like my whole brain is all out there for me to read and so accurate! haha I always thought I was a little weird ! So it's just that we are all one of the 4 people out of 100 who are a little different ! But do you have any advice on how we can deal with people around us that keep judging us on how we are ? I always feel so frustrated when people don't understand me so I just say 'never mind.' Haha

Wow!!! Most of my life I felt like a crazy person, and SOOOOO misunderstood. While reading this a penny just dropped, and I realised that I am OK :) haha. Sometimes (only sometimes) I felt jealous of people who can be ok with being the centre of attention, or who are comfortable comforting a friend. I always felt like I had to change to fit in social situations and I never liked it! I had a bit of a giggle when I googled fictional INTP characters and there it was, DATA!!! Had another chuckle where it said that an INTP usually seem pensive, then I remembered the cup my mom bought me once saying: "I am constantly in my own world... but it is OK... people understand me here." Now I realised why she bought it haha.

I absolutely love the detail. I feel so happy, and understood. That's what I've wanted for a long, long time, and quite frankly, it feels like something's been lifted off my shoulders. I cried while reading this. :)

This is so accurate, it's scary. I previously thought I was INTJ, but.. No. This is me!

Same here, it's all very accurate. I thought I might be INTJ, until I realized I am more INTP. According to the test I'm only a bit more P than J, and that seems very reasonable. The funny thing though, is that once you're aware of your weaknesses, it's also rational to counter them whenever appropriate, such as sometimes consciously subduing a perfectionist tendency, taking calculated risks and moving on.
