INTPs have always held a particular fascination for me. These unique thinkers have an impeccable sense of logic but also a never-ending desire to explore new, uncharted ideas and theories. They are often thought leaders when it comes to technology, physics, or even philosophy. There seems to be no limit to what these innovative people can do once they set their minds to it!

To celebrate these original individuals, I thought it would be fun to make a post with my favorite INTP quotes. These people have been typed by either David Keirsey, Carl Jung, or through celebritytypes.com


“Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value.”
– Albert Einstein, Physicist


“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

“It is not necessary that whilst I live I live happily; but it is necessary that so long as I live I should live honourably.”
– Immanuel Kant, Philosopher


“There are no dangerous thoughts; thinking itself is dangerous.”

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”

“All mankind…being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.”

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”

“To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature.”

“I find it odd when people go, ‘I worked very hard for this and I deserved it,’ because lots of people work very hard and deserve things, so it seems somewhat self-aggrandizing, as though you have complete command over your destiny.”

“I feel there’s an existential angst among young people. I didn’t have that. They see enormous mountains, where I only saw one little hill to climb.”
