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. We have told you how INTPs tend to behave in certain circumstances and what their key strengths and weaknesses are. Now we need to go much deeper into your personality type and answer "why?", "how?" and "what if?"

This knowledge is only the beginning of a lifelong journey. Are you ready to learn why INTPs act in the way they do? What motivates and inspires you? What you are afraid of and what you secretly dream about? How you can unlock your true, exceptional potential?

Our premium profiles provide a roadmap towards a happier, more successful, and more versatile YOU! They are not for everyone though – you need to be willing and able to challenge yourself, to go beyond the obvious, to imagine and follow your own path instead of just going with the flow. If you want to take the reins into your own hands, we are here to help you.

This actually seems to be so accurate considering my circumstances. I'm only 17 years of age, socially detached, barely any good friends (due to myself not putting in the effort to create these relationships) and struggle in making deep relationships with girls, although I am able on my own accord to acquire these relationships with friends and girls I generally choose not to. And It is right that we need a plan, I have always been told throughout my middle school to put effort in and to try because I actually have brains compared to majority of the kids at schools, but I've been distracted in the temptations of games to obtain the best possible result through these games (such as World of Warcraft trying to get rank 1). Aswell as the video games I enjoy puzzles and riddles such as sudokus etc.. and I forgot to add that I do find it quite difficult to socialise in groups or with anyone outside of schoolf or that matter.. But after councilling on how to counter this I am finally starting to create friends and being able to adapt to social circles outside of school and am starting to strengthen my weakness of being isolated from people. I can't believe how true this is though, I am always mentally sparring people and have a passion for theorys such as ancient aliens etc.. And a passion for space A tip for all INTP's that are under the age of 16 or haven't started high school, don't worry as you probably half listen to class already wait until you get to high school and do chemistry, I never used to listen in middle school and averaged C's D's and a few B's and I'm rocking 100%'s on my assessments so far and averaging 2-3 drafts per assessment.

I totally agree. It's just like that for me! I'm 15 - the age of a freshman in sophomore classes. People consider me smarter than I am, and I don't get close enough to them to prove them wrong. However I do spar with them in my head for sure!

Just when I thought I was awkward for having constant brainstorms and almost obsessing on my own thoughts I realize there are more people like me. I never understood why so many people waste time on chitchats with no intellectual depth. For me that's just what it is, a waste of time. And here I am, trying to analyse why people do it 'cause everything for me needs to be analysed.

As others have stated, this is also very accurate for me as well. Although I was raised by a INFP so it would seem I have a better grasp on emotions than a lot of the other people in the INTP category... *Sardonic Cheer* Woo.... Emotions...

The struggle to find others to relate is very difficult. I get tired out when I'm in large group settings so meeting other people is a chore for me. I worry a lot about what others think of me. Finding people who can understand and tolerate me has been a long lasting mission for me.

The accuracy of this was absolutely startling. I'm amazed that this personality profile was able to articulately explain why my friendships and relationships are so difficult to make and maintain. Furthermore, I'm really interested in seeing how INSP's interact with other personality types. My brother is an ENFP and we get along famously!
