INTP lol same personality type as leo, never thought my overwhelming trait would be thinking too much but I did resonate with a lot of what is said about the type

INTP master race. 

 


Hark ye yet again — the little lower layer. All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event — in the living act, the undoubted deed — there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall? To me, the white whale is that wall, shoved near to me. Sometimes I think there's naught beyond. But 'tis enough

INFP :)

Quite accurate I guess. I've been embracing intuitiveness and being over of logic and thinking. That used to be a huge problem. I'm changing from an endless planner into an intuitive doer.

I just retook this test and I got a different answer. For years I would always get INTJ, but just now, after ensuring I was being totally honest and answering the questions as I am now, and not how my mind projects I could/would/should be, I got INTP.

Although INTJ did seem to have explained my personality quite well, INTP does it way better.

However,  I am a firm believer that not test can literally explain away such complex beings such as ourselves, it is interesting how these tests do seem to have the major patterns we act out most of the time.

According to the theory of MBTI, you can't be a borderline INTP/INTJ or INFP/INFJ, that's total nonsense. As an INTP uses totally different cognitive functions than the INTJ(actually the exact opposite functions), the INFP also uses different functions than the INFJ. These types may look similar from the outside, they reach their conclusions about reality in a totally different way.

Yeah, you guys should review the theory:

Haha! Love that!

I'm INTP too.. I've always had a hunch that people who embark on personal development are skewed towards N types as they are more likely to see the long term benefits of their efforts. What do you think?

The NeTi cognitive function is never satisfied and is always looking for more theoretical security.  It's both a strength and weakness of our type.  Extroverted Intuition always throws doubt into our theories.  We feel like we need to completely understand the entire puzzle of everything.  That's why a lot of INTPs never act on their grand plans.   Basically Extroverted Intuition and Introverted Thinking kind of clash with each other.   Extroverted Intuition sees the possibilities and errors in everything, including the theories generated by Introverted Thinking.  This is a big trap for us to deal with.

Haha, no, @Leo Gura, you're not INTP, you're INTJ. INTP is similar, but you're INTJ. Read the description and you'll see it's true.

INFP-T with hint of ENFP-T

I'm INFP and when life is going exciting I become more ENFP

My intuition and thinking are extraverted, while feeling and sensing are introverted

I'm introvert, only when life is really good I can feel natural to be extrovert (case for INFP)

I find my thinking to be much stronger than sensing (case for ENFP)

But I struggle to differentiate between being lead by feelings with help of intuition (INFP) or by intuition with help of feelings (ENFP). Any ideas how are these different?

INTP-T

It both surprise me and not at the same time.

 

Why it surprises me

I don't consider myself as highly intelligent, I didn't have awesome grades at school even if I were not bad most of the time. It was more like a rollercoaster for me, and I was not really good at math.

Why it doesn't surprise me

I like to be alone, I philosophy and think a lot. I get lost in thoughts and on the internet at a supersonic speed. I always feel misunderstood, I see people doing complete nonsense in their life, complaining a lot, and not taking actions. I prefer to be direct in my approach, I have difficulties to communicate with people that most of the time misunderstood my behavior and my thinking. I hate small talk, I prefer not to speak rather than saying irrelevant things. I consider myself as being open-minded, at least enough open-minded to admit that I can be close-minded without noticing it. I don't try to impose things on people, they do what they want even if I consider that it's bullshit. I try to analyze critics against me, rather than reacting against them, if there some true inside it's better for me to explore that.

 


There are probably more things to say, but I don't have everything in my mind right now. However, I can see that there are a lot of things to improve in myself
