    I Flop Between Intp And Entp

    Basically I am always sort of shifting from high and low tide on the introversion/extroversion scale. There are some periods where I am quite happy by myself. Other times, all I want to be is out and with the people. I tend to not enjoy people who know me well, or I know well...

    The Truth about INTPs,

    taken from intpexperience.com. INTPs feel emotion very intensely, even if you don’t think they show it. In fact, emotion for an INTP is primal and pure. Almost naïve. And they are afraid of it. That’s why they learn to suppress it, withdraw from it, and safely pack...

    I am an INTP female. Similarly,

    I dislike the attention given only to my physical looks, but sometimes I use it to my advantage. I enjoy lots of time alone, day dreaming, sleeping and waking at odd hours, reading and cycling. I am quite unattuned to my emotions. Most of the time I am calm on the outside...

    That's what the tests say.
