12 Insightful Quotes From Famous INTPs

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

  1. Great insights from those famous individuals !

    I can see that these ideas cover a wide range from general humanity to specific individual values,from how to deal with infinite dream-like possibilities to what consistent essence we should hold on to,and most importantly,they care about the natural objects as well as the human being,which in some ways proves that INTPs are no cold robots with absolutely emotions.

    Yes,we are highly potential and we care about almost every perspective our thinking could reach,whether it’s like pure logic represented by Ti or humanity in general represented by Fe.

    Envision and create a better world altogether.
