Introverted Intuitive Feeling Judging
56 38 12 89


Yup, the descriptions seem pretty spot on. But then I haven't read all the others to see if i'm actually close to any of them either, heh...

*EDIT* I guess we know what the J in my board name is for now! Blimey, compared to the rest of the apparent INFJ's here, I'm crazy high on the judging side!...

The Thinker

As an INTP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into. They live primarily inside their own minds, having the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge. They are the "absent-minded professors", who highly value intelligence and the ability to apply logic to theories to find solutions. They typically are so strongly driven to turn problems into logical explanations, that they live much of their lives within their own heads, and may not place as much importance or value on the external world. Their natural drive to turn theories into concrete understanding may turn into a feeling of personal responsibility to solve theoretical problems, and help society move towards a higher understanding.

INTPs value knowledge above all else. Their minds are constantly working to generate new theories, or to prove or disprove existing theories. They approach problems and theories with enthusiasm and skepticism, ignoring existing rules and opinions and defining their own approach to the resolution. They seek patterns and logical explanations for anything that interests them. They're usually extremely bright, and able to be objectively critical in their analysis. They love new ideas, and become very excited over abstractions and theories. They love to discuss these concepts with others. They may seem "dreamy" and distant to others, because they spend a lot of time inside their minds musing over theories. They hate to work on routine things - they would much prefer to build complex theoretical solutions, and leave the implementation of the system to others. They are intensely interested in theory, and will put forth tremendous amounts of time and energy into finding a solution to a problem with has piqued their interest.

INTPs do not like to lead or control people. They're very tolerant and flexible in most situations, unless one of their firmly held beliefs has been violated or challenged, in which case they may take a very rigid stance. The INTP is likely to be very shy when it comes to meeting new people. On the other hand, the INTP is very self-confident and gregarious around people they know well, or when discussing theories which they fully understand.

The INTP has no understanding or value for decisions made on the basis of personal subjectivity or feelings. They strive constantly to achieve logical conclusions to problems, and don't understand the importance or relevance of applying subjective emotional considerations to decisions. For this reason, INTPs are usually not in-tune with how people are feeling, and are not naturally well-equiped to meet the emotional needs of others.

The INTP may have a problem with self-aggrandizement and social rebellion, which will interfere with their creative potential. Since their Feeling side is their least developed trait, the INTP may have difficulty giving the warmth and support that is sometimes necessary in intimate relationships. If the INTP doesn't realize the value of attending to other people's feelings, he or she may become overly critical and sarcastic with others. If the INTP is not able to find a place for themself which supports the use of their strongest abilities, they may become generally negative and cynical. If the INTP has not developed their Sensing side sufficiently, they may become unaware of their environment, and exhibit weakness in performing maintenance-type tasks, such as bill-paying and dressing appropriately.

For the INTP, it is extremely important that ideas and facts are expressed correctly and succinctly. They are likely to express themselves in what they believe to be absolute truths. Sometimes, their well thought-out understanding of an idea is not easily understandable by others, but the INTP is not naturally likely to tailor the truth so as to explain it in an understandable way to others. The INTP may be prone to abandoning a project once they have figured it out, moving on to the next thing. It's important that the INTP place importance on expressing their developed theories in understandable ways. In the end, an amazing discovery means nothing if you are the only person who understands it.

The INTP is usually very independent, unconventional, and original. They are not likely to place much value on traditional goals such as popularity and security. They usually have complex characters, and may tend to be restless and temperamental. They are strongly ingenious, and have unconventional thought patterns which allows them to analyze ideas in new ways. Consequently, a lot of scientific breakthroughs in the world have been made by the INTP.

The INTP is at his best when he can work on his theories independently. When given an environment which supports his creative genius and possible eccentricity, the INTP can accomplish truly remarkable things. These are the pioneers of new thoughts in our society.

I took this about two years ago and it helped me to understand myself a little better.

This site has some great details of all the types. It also lists well known people of the same type.


Other examples of Rational Fieldmarshals; Hillary Clinton, Napoleon, Margret Thatcher, Carl Sagan, Bill Gates, Golda Meir, Edward Teller, George Benard Shaw, and General George C. Marshall.

I worked for a company a few years ago that as part of a team building program had a group come in and test everyone to determine their type

after we were tested they went through them all employee by employee - it was amazing really

I was calling it astrology for eggheads at the time - but I have to admit - while I don't think you can really paint a complete portrait of a person with a simple test, and I had some issues with the wording in some of the questions - as far as a general description of a persons personality goes, it was very close - down to a person

I was also having some problems with the titles they chose for the category types - so I refused to believe mine was accurate for a while. Finally I saw that I was taking them to literally - it isn't about who or what you are - but how you approach life

anyway - I took the test over and over - each time trying to be even more honest - and even more "me" than the time before - always with the same result

so - INTP - with an occasional result of INTJ - but I think that might be mostly hormonal :-)

I'm only partly kidding

Quite a few protectors on here, could this be why we are here on a site such as this?

Trying to send out a warning.

the Jung typology test cateogorized me as a stereotype 'Rational- mastermind using these score numbers: I-89 I-50 T-75 J-22

i'm supposed to feel-good about being pigeon-holed & cateogorized
into a digital slot ?

About the only thing redeeming about this exercise (70 questions)
is that 2 of the fictional characters which share this Trait Profile are

Hannibal Lecter (silence of the lambs)
[i read in another site Lecter is also a Taurean born in April]

Professor Moriarty (sherlock holmes nemesis)

i think i keep good company, or vice-versa
i somehow thought that ted kazinski, of unibomber infamy
would also be an introverted mastermind...but i reckon that the meaning of 'introverted'
does not translate as a sociopath & a person who exiles themselves from
normal social contact & interaction as ted did in his remote 10'x12' shack

aren't any of youse worried that the new Obamanianics youth-corps will
go test all citizens to see if they might be 'persons of interest', by using
one of these 'tests' to see if you need re-educated or just labled a potential political terrorist?

oh well....

I was classified as INTJ, "The Scientist". I agree with most of it, but I have never really considered myself introverted. I am actually very outgoing with people I am comfortable around.

This is mine as well. I have 56% introverted and I agree with that. I'm very outgoing with people I know but very withdrawn with new people until I see enough to know whether or not I want to know them.

distinctively expressed introvert

distinctively expressed intuitive personality

slightly expressed thinking personality

slightly expressed perceiving personality

This is interesting because last time I did this test, I was an INFJ

which I think goes to show - it shows tendencies - but we're all changeable at the same time -

I think a lot of it depends on the situation - and how you would react in that situation right now as opposed to 2 years ago

INTJ, which I suppose comes as no surprise to anyone.

This makes me 'The Executive'!

Of all the Idealists, the Teacher (ENFJ) is the most likely to seek leadership positions in the private or public sector. The Teacher is drawn to careers in education or social services, such as college professor, high school teacher, social worker, or non-profit director. In business they are often trainers, sales managers, recruiters, or executives. Since they are good at building relationships, they may be fund raisers or recruiters. They also are found in jobs such as a health advisor, clergy, facilitator, or counselor. Says Rene, “It’s very important to me to really connect with my students. I need to feel that I am making a difference in their lives.”

I'm not one of those but i'm told by psychics that I would inspire many people with my work.

As intuitive and counselor-like I feel I am, I want to inspire people as well.

I'm told I would combine my 3 talents of art, teaching, and grasping spiritual concepts to put this towards that means, and it appears I am.

Inspiration man.
