Resources For INTP's

167 posts in this topic

Since many of us here are INTPs I thought it would be useful to start a collection of resources for this personality type.

If there is high demand, we can do the same for some other popular types.

I've started diving into the 16 personalities quite deeply 3 days ago for no reason. I'm a mix of INFJ/INFP, but it's quite amazing to see our collective chimp mastermind come together. I wake up and suddenly, there are threads all over the forum!

I found this online course specifically for INTPs & INTJs:

Can't speak to whether it's worth it or not, but seems promising.

Seems like us INTPs have a unique challenge with awakening & meditation because we love to use our minds so much. It's harder for us to shut down our minds because we are so creative and philosophical.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

@Leo Gura

I have been researching this topic for a while. From my understanding there is quite a plethora of different personality theories, but among them MBTI and Enneagram seem the most reliable and helpful for growth.

From what I've seen, It seem that next to an INTP you are also a 5 type on the Enneagram. I myself am an INFJ on MBTI and a 5 on Enneagram. Which leads me to believe that most people that connect with your teaching are either INTP's (so similar in how their cognitive functions work) or enneagram 5's (same mode in how to approach life and similar core fears). I think it's interesting to look at what kind of people are drawn to your work and if there is a certain similarity to be found among those people. Could help to draw in those that would benefit most and identify most with your approach.

Michael Pierce is a great resource for MBTI 

This is his first video on INTP's 

And here is his revisited one:

MBTI is just a simplified version of Socionics. There is much more to learn - cognitive functions and intertype relationships. You just need to remember about j/p switch for introverts.

I also highly recommend YouTube channels Type tips and Casual Cognition. C.S. Joseph is also interesting but I hope typing methods aren't accurate in my opinion (he typed Leo as ENFP ;D ;D)

Yes, of course.

There's nothing like a 2 hour metaphysical video to weed out all the non-INTPs.

@Leo Gura Hahahh, but that's what I'm saying. I'm not an INTP, but I still love it. Could have to do with Enneagram types, who knows

Statistically speaking (according to whatever metric), female INTPs are pretty rare, rarer than male INTPS, aren't we? I haven't read much about it either way, but socialization does factor into this somehow. If we tend to manifest certain core traits a bit differently.

A lot of these classical INTP traits are why I think sometimes my personality comes off as more masculine or androgynous sometimes.

Oh, a resource. I ended up looking this up, out of curiosity. This is just general Myers-Briggs statistics stats.

The accuracy is I don't know. I'm not a big statistics person; I tend to take it with a grain of salt.

I had no idea that INFJ guys were like the dodo. I sure seem to have some kind of radar for finding men with these traits over and over.

I skew strongly enough towards the J though, and my partner's F tends to skew towards the T (who usually tests as INFJ). So we're both pretty INTJ-like. I like INTJ type of personalities, like direct and logical and often blunt, but for a lot of people, this is just an asshole, right? Haha.

Personality comes from the ego self, the false self. It's just an illusion. Better be in the real self, identify as consciousness we are, don't try to isolate yourself into these mbti boxes..

@Leo Gura Hmmm. Makes me question my personality type o.O

I love your long videos on metaphysics/epistemology the most.

Although there seem to be many people here who are INFP or aren't sure if they're INFP/INTP

Personality is NOT ego. Be careful making that conflation.

@Leo Gura How would you define personality? where does it "come from"?

probably different sources, so you would maybe not mind different people answering.

some of it is genetics, like how you perceive the world,  gives you a special ability to interact with it. how you grow up and your socio cultural education probably plays a big roll. some of it is created through not only your own interaction with the world but how people react towards you (which is part of socio cultural interaction) so the traits about you which are vavored in your socio cultural surrounding will play into it. educational resources may play into it.

theories of personality types usually have some kind of structure they are building the theory on. the myers briggs is built on decision making and cognitive  theory.

which does not mean that ego is not part of the personality type, it just means it is not measured and integrated in the theory. although it would be interesting to integrate spiral dynamics for example and look how traits like pride interact with myers briggs personality types. also how different ego dynamics play a roll in different myers briggs types how they push or trigger each other and may also change the spiral dynamic for individuals just by interaction.
