They Say Intps Are Architects... Not Necessarily.I've taken the Myers-Briggs test 4 or 5 times... sometimes it says ENTP, n sometimes INTP... so, i took a separate test to find out how 'I' or 'E' i am... n it seems i am 58% Introvert and 42% Extrovert. n since i have lot of mood swings, so sometimes i behave more extroverted and sometimes more introverted...
Also, the test tags INTPs as Architects... which i dont agree to. Because i never had even slightest interest in building skyscrapers or any bridges.. I am an Entrepreneur by profession. I am a college drop out and today i am running 2 successful business... n these days, m working on opening a new factory.. so you will agree when i say i am an Entrepreneur..but the test says i am Architect...LOL!!
Well, some of the personality traits that they describe r completely true.. like INTPs value knowledge, they constantly keep thinkin on how things can be improved, they live in their own minds, they dont value emotions n all such things... these r true.
But, it also says that INTPs dont like to lead or control people... which i dont find fit. because since childhood i have been a leader, its natural in me... i like to take control n make things go my way...n as a business owner i have people woking for me, i am controlling people n leading them.. so i find this conclusion contradicting.
Also, neither do i like science fiction, nor i am socially uncomfortable.. n i dont act without planning... i might b somewhat impulsive but being a businessman i never do anything without careful planning.. so a lot of wrong conclusions there, u see.
This is why i took this test many times.. but then i think... this test is not gonna make any difference in ur life... it only classifies u.. n does dis classification do any good to you... i dont think so.. i dont find it useful.
i know who i am, what i like, n what i dont like n what m gonna do with my life... so wat new is d test gonna tell me.. infact d test wasnt even able to read me properly. LOL.
i might be an INTP, but am not an Architect or a Nerd!
