but when I do it’s because they’re decent.

So I’ve just spent the better part of my day burning through this website, and it’s great.  Well researched, written and detailed.  Plus it’s written by an INTP! - which is an obvious bonus because how they present everything fits nicely into my head and makes sense.  Overall, an excellent resource! 

very interesting stuff.

Dominant: Introverted thinking (Ti)

Ti seeks precision, such as the exact word to express an idea. It notices the minute distinctions that define the essence of things, then analyzes and classifies them. Ti examines all sides of an issue, looking to solve problems while minimizing effort and risk. It uses models to root out logical inconsistency. Ti is calm, articulate, and aware of the forces that bind reality together. As introverted thinkers, INTPs spend the majority of their time and energy ordering the interior, logical world of principles and generalizations in an effort to understand.

Auxiliary: Extraverted intuition (Ne)

Ne finds and interprets hidden meanings, using “what if” questions to explore alternatives, allowing multiple possibilities to coexist. This imaginative play weaves together insights and experiences from various sources to form a new whole, which can then become a catalyst to action. Ne gives INTPs a grasp of the patterns of the world around them. They use their intuition to amalgamate empirical data into coherent pictures, from which they can derive universal principles. INTPs frequently puzzle over a problem for hours on end, until the answer suddenly crystallizes in a flash of insight.

Tertiary: Introverted sensing (Si)

Si collects data in the present moment and compares it with past experiences, a process that sometimes evokes the feelings associated with memory, as if the subject were reliving it. Seeking to protect what is familiar, Si draws upon history to form goals and expectations about what will happen in the future. Si gives INTPs the potential for keen observation. They use this function to gather empirical data, use physical tools, perceive physical relationships, and support their internal logic with a rich sense of space.

Inferior: Extraverted feeling (Fe)

Fe seeks social connections and creates harmonious interactions through polite, considerate, and appropriate behavior. Fe responds to the explicit (and implicit) wants of others, and may even create an internal conflict between the subject’s own needs and the desire to meet the needs of others. Fe drives the INTP to desire harmony in community. At their most relaxed, INTPs can be charming and outgoing among friends, or when they have a clearly defined role in the group. When under stress, however, INTPs can feel disconnected from the people around them, unable to use their extraverted Feeling to reach out to others. As their inferior function, Feeling can be a weak point; when threatened they will hide behind a wall of stoic logic. This can lead them to bottle up their emotions to preserve reason and harmony; but a failure to deal with these concealed emotions can lead to inappropriate outbursts.

I think everyone should take an MBI test, as an INTP it pretty accurately explains a lot of my mannerisms and I’d love to see what personality types my friends have to help me understand how they think.

"Potential" and the INTP

nyquilontherocks:

To pull a quote from the INTP subreddit:

“I was classified as an INTP about 10 years ago in a professional skills course. I was somewhat horrified to learn that I was in the only one in the class. Not so much because of what it says about INTPs, but the scarcity of people like me (1%).

‘I have all the classic traits. I jump from interest to interest, attaining a good understanding quickly, but quickly lose interest as soon as I feel that I have a comfortable level of understanding. Particularly if I understand what I would need to do to excel, but realise I lack the drive to execute on it.

“For example, I took up photography on a whim. I spent months reading books and experimenting on how my camera worked. I then decided to start a wedding photography business, so I researched business structures and strategies. Then I taught myself HTML and flash so I could set up my website. After three years of being moderately successful (~30k a year as a side business to my 9 to 5 job), I suddenly shut it down, realising that I would never have the time to become the top in my field.

“The ability to self learn and put in all the work to set up the business in such a short time buoys me, but my lack of drive to take it any further is disappointing.

“I’ve done the same with sports. I became my school’s top hockey goalie only after six months of taking up the game. I was a single figure golfer at 16, but have hovered at the same handicap ever since.

“The one word that irks me is “potential”. It has been used so often in my life to describe me. It has such good connotations at the start, but wears thin after a few years.”

This little snippet of information sums up how I feel about a lot of things quite succinctly. I usually have a hard time of it, and this words it better than I could and something I can highly relate to. So. Here it is.

thelithiumcat:

I am jealous that Ni leads to a feeling of knowing things. I never know. I hate that I feel intelligent, and seem intelligent, but my knowledge feels empty. I reach what is buried in my mind mainly through Ne and Si. I.e. I get an idea and follow the thought path, while examples and past knowledge pop up out of nowhere. Hence, if you ask me whether I know something I cannot answer you. I will have to follow a chain of connections back to the information. Think of it like a road map; Ni’s the teleportation system. I have to take the slow path down the roads, through all the towns, to reach the destination miles away. Do I know exactly where it is in relation to me when I start? No. ‘That would be impossible’, you say, ‘you can’t see it yet. It’s past the horizon’. Exactly.

Found this on Youtube and it really helped me today…. I work in a very extroverted office —being surrounded by extroverts….and sometimes I can’t fathom how they can work progressively through the entire day… being around, and talking to other people.

-Suzannah

I remember in high school we had an assignment to do a speech on whatever topic we wanted, and I ended up doing one with a similar message as this. 

The topic of introversion/extroversion is deeply personal for me. For a really long time I thought there was something wrong with me because I wasn’t as social as other kids. I remember my mom forcing me to make friends with people who I didn’t even like just for the sake of having friends. I only really had one best friend up until middle school, until she switched schools. I hated when my mom would ask me why I was always by myself, when teachers would sit me next to the loudest kids in class, when random schoolmates would ask me why I was so quiet and if I was feeling okay; I couldn’t explain why because I didn’t know exactly what it was or how to explain it. I just knew there was some fundamental part of me that nobody could, or should, change. And so for a good part of my younger teens I really hated myself for not being “normal.” It wasn’t until high school that I really started researching personality psychology and realized that there wasn’t anything wrong with me, that I was just different from the majority, and finally found some iota of self-confidence and being okay with who I am.

Let me get on my little soapbox for a moment: the cultural belief that you HAVE to be friendly talk to everyone, that you CAN’T just be alone, that “you have to live with people,” that quiet=wrong, that lonely is the same thing as being alone, and so on: it really pisses me off. Of course these things are true. Otherwise, how would society even function? But it doesn’t mean you have to surround yourself with people all the time. There needs to be more of a balance here and that’s where I think a lot of people miss the point.

So anyways.

Long story short, I’m really glad this woman made this speech in a room full of open-minded thinkers and that the message is out there, because I’m one of many who can relate.

Ni-Te vs. Ti-Ne: INTJ vs. INTP


NI-TE: THE INTJ

Introverted Intuition, the dominant function of INTJs, works from a big concept to a small, specific concept, like a rule or principle by which to measure a situation. Extraverted Thinking, the auxiliary function of INTJs, takes that one rule, and applies it to situations, making a small, specific concept into a big, concrete solution. So Ni works from big to small, and Te works from small to big (which is how corporations are brought about). Not to mention that Te is deductive.

TI-NE: THE INTP

Introverted Thinking, the dominant function of INTPs, works, like Ni, from the big web of possibilities that their Ne provides it with, and starts chopping away until it is left with a small amount of possibilities, and goes to town on it, until it’s an absolute, concrete slab of hard-as-diamond logic. Since Ti is introverted, it doesn’t really care much for putting it out in the world, making it a practical thing - it can stay theoretical, that’s okay. This goes against all the rules of Te, which wants to go out in the world and do. Not to mention that Ti is also inductive. Extraverted Intuition, the auxiliary function of INTPs, works from small to big, the exact opposite of Ni - it has one idea, and it starts looking around in the real world (since it’s an extraverted function), and makes that one idea into an infinite amount of ideas, which it then hands over to Ti, so that Ti can work its specifying magic.

  • DEDUCTION: Deduction is what makes a “J-type” a J-type; a deductive argument claims that its premises make its conclusion certain - decisive, the J.
  • INDUCTION: Induction is what makes a “P-type” a P-type; an inductive argument claims that its premises merely make its conclusion probable - indecisive, the P.

Here’s why I’m not ENTP

cynical-staccato:

My recent social interactions with friends led me to believe that I might actually be an extrovert. The reasoning for this was that I felt particularly excited and happy just to hang out with them. Extroverts are energized by their interactions with other people. Therefore, I must be extrovert, right? Not so fast.

even-after-all-this-time:

INTPs hate to think of themselves being in any way inadequate, at least in areas that are important to them. So, as soon as he puts himself behind some task, then he must achieve competency. But that is as far as it goes. Refined competency requires too much effort and has little attraction. It…
