    Tender INTP. I also am of the Turbulent varient. I like being unique in some ways, but it would be nice if someone could understand me. I would like to be able to understand my feelings more and be able to share them. I would also like to have more social skills. They aren't...

    Another INTP story from me.

    I will not explain what an INTP is. INTP is explained else where. I think I need to work out. I made the decision, not to work out and I think it was a mistake. I haven't felt this anxious in a long time. I revealed to someone in my world, how talented I am and last time I did...

    I am convinced that me

    and my fellow INTP's are the ones who quietly make the world turn.

    Intp's Do It Quietly..

    The Myers-Briggs test was revealing. And each time that I've done it, I come up with a strong 'T', which makes sense, given how my brain won't shut up. I: Introverted? Yes, though I have learned to mask it. Can't be a teacher without the mask. No wonder I feel exhausted a lot...

    Being An Intp Woman

    I remember reading a study that said INTP women are the worst-viewed out of all personality type groups, but I chose not to dwell on that. But, as time went on, I realized it is hard, very hard, to be an NT woman. I get called beautiful all the times, yet men never approach me...

    When I first took the test I got INFP,

    but with a very little percentage of F, still I felt kind of identified with it. A few months ago I took it again and got INTP, didn't felt identified at first, I thought "all these people are too smart, and I'm a ******* looser, don't get good grades and get too nervous at test...

    I am an INTP. I am hopeful.

    I am hoping that my increased knowledge of feelings will help me to be a better person. I have the ability to focus and create mastery in a specific field of study. I find it difficult to be with people, because the variables are too many and too complex.

    I am an INTP/INFP. I have sometime to write,

    so that is what I am doing. Perhaps, I should take the time to go home and return at 4 pm. I can see if I can fix the printer at home.

    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...

    One thing about INTPs is

    that when we first tackle a new problem we can be slower than most types because we over think it. However, over time, over thinking can produce great long term results as long as we stick with the task until we master it.

    I used to love MBTI before it lost its marvel

    to Socionics. I find Socionics is more comprehensive and 'stable', whereas whenever I read about MBTI, I am always somewhat unsatisfied with the descriptions. Truthfully, I didn't (don't) feel any strong bones and the theory is a bit clashing with Socionics. What do you think...

    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...

    Altough I am an INTP,

    I can also be an ENTP. I like being to myself a lot, but do have the ability to create some extraversion when needed or when I need to protect.

    Although, I competed the Meyers

    THIS! " 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...

    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...
