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.

While I enjoyed reading the archetype description, I found I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments even more! Seeing the 12-14 year olds, who act very much like I did when I was 12-14, often being mistaken for a 20 year old when I went on the web. What I find amusing, and perhaps a small part eery, is the similarity in not just opinion, but linguistic pattern. This is one of the only profiles where people consistently will respond in full length paragraphs. Not only that, I find a frequency towards, but not limited to: -Long rambling sentences of thought, taking advantage of such beloved punctuation as the comma and parentheses -Very precise diction. The words are clearly chosen with thought and accuracy. This gives many of the comments I've read a sense of crispness. (On my part I've always worried this crispness may be taken for formality or detachment. Really I just like the feeling of being eloquent and precise) -A wistful, and often slightly humorous pondering and analysis of the subject at hand. We do not appear to be concise. But we do appear to be having a jolly good time.

This is true. I love to talk to people but often about my own ideas. I don't have any friends and often find friendships stifling. But I understand emotions and people very well bc I look at them as case studies. People and their psychology are my version of physics.

You are just like me. I'm now entering my 30's and only now i can be in a social setting without being the weirdo because after so many years observing and studying others reactions to different social situations i now just develop the strategy of faking and imitate what i saw others do and say. Although sometimes i go back to my old ways and when i notice i just spent an entire party playing with a dog or a cat while everybody else were talking about "important" shenanigans. It is tiring and a never end task, and i'm still not sure if it worth the trouble, but at least i'm able to socialize with the average people more often and not just be a weirdo. And also i've a friend just like myself so i'm not that much alone like others here. I've someone to talk with and debate, share ideas, discuss theories. And the part when they say spotting discrepancies between statements is an hobby, YES! its spot on, its one of our hobbies together we have great laughs analyze how other people behave and how illogical and irrational they are.

I just can't even begin to explain how accurate this is.... It's kinda hard to describe urself without trying to make yourself look good but INTP just about hits the spot right on, I always thought that my train of thought or my objectives where weird because everyone always had this "emotional" blockade that they have that i don't. and it's something that i can never truly understand but at least i do understand there are others like me (the 3% that is) amazing test

I am always thinking all the time. I have ADD, and I take meds for it. The meds help me focus on what I am doing so I can get things done. When I do not have my medicine, I am still thinking, although I appear to be completely blank. I am always thinking of probabilities, and possibilities. Sometimes I day dream about baseball, and planes, etc. I think it feels awesome when I "blank out", because I love thinking about, "what if?" I am a pretty mellow person, but when I get interested in a conversation, I might juice it, and by that I mean I bring up so much into it that I make it boring. I have so many ideas floating around just waiting to be used. I have a small group of friends, like 7 people, but I am really close to them. I personally don't like a lot of people, and to others, they probably don't like me either, and think I am a weirdo, but I don't give two hoots. I can relate with INTP in pretty much all ways that were shown. I believe that this website is extremely accurate, and it is like I wrote it. This website helped me realize who I really am, and how I am to other people, and how to deal with some of the drawbacks of being this personality type. I really appretiate the people who made this.

This test... I can't even... it describes me so perfectly that it's freaking creepy! I've always thought I was an emotionless freak...yeah, that's what people called me sometimes, even though I'm pretty sensitive to other people's opinions. The intelligence and logic thing is spot on. I've always been called smart, and people used to ask me about stuff like homework and math that they needed help with. And like the other comments say, I dislike math but I'm good at it, and I like art. I've never been good at making friends (I couldn't bring myself to approach other people and the people I did approach thought I was weird for constantly staring out into space, thinking about stuff that had nothing to do with the situation), but I try to keep the friends that I manage to make. Sometimes, I'm also too logical, so people around get irritated by my unrelenting torrent of questions and need for a thorough explanation of what's happening and why it's happening.
