“surprisingly imaginative”; “surprisingly loving”,
What’s this supposed to mean?? Should I be concerned???
Wow! That was just poor writing on my part. I wrote “surprisingly” because so many people think of INTPs as the steroetypical unfeeling or cold thinking types (I obviously disagree). I changed the wording so it’s not so “surprising” 🙂 Thanks for alerting me of this!
Overthinking. Classic trait of we, INTP
This made me LOL big time… cause it’s so true. I feel like a weirder version of Michael Cera in real life. But my lady finds it super adorable so I digress.
What you wrote was so true some I heard time and time again some I felt but didn’t know how to say it but I express how I feel more then anything..so thank you for this
I used to like reading these personality type descriptions when they weren’t interchangeably generic. You can read any of them and still think they relate to you. There’s no science or real study to these specific descriptions other then conjecture, and they’ve gotten to Buzzfeed levels of click bait, I’m waiting for the day I see “What type of fall sweater are you based on personality type” to pop up.
These brief descriptions, based on a very specific topic, must be looked at as such–briefly described. Even with that, I don’t know about you, but when I look at my opposite type–ESFP, to my INTJ–I see a definite distinction and see immediately that the description has my daughter’s type written all over it, not mine. In addition, the same goes for all the other types I look at when I think about each family member or friend. Certainly, the same goes when you read each type’s individual, in-depth description. The opinion you shared is typical of who knows how many others out there, like you, who feel it is just another [fortune cookie or horoscope reading]. Just a suggestion, that you read them with a little more thoughtfulness and insight. You may be surprised at what you glean from them, then.
This INTP Things I don’t understand because they not referred to as our horoscope so I don’t know where I fall into, maybe if it was elaborated better I would understand
I married an infp. I loved him when I pushed him away and he loved me still. To this day…I love Him because of his loyalty.
This is 100% real talk!!
As an ISFP, I find ISTPs to be too clingy which is why I’ve always run away from being in a romantic relationship with them despite having had quite a good number attracted to me (I think they make up the largest percentage of suitors I’ve had). This is not surprising since they’re melancholy-sanguine.
They want me to speak with me all the time, they want to be around me a lot and so on and that’s too much for my phelgmatic self (ISFPs are phelgmatic-sanguines).
Although, I’ve discovered that they’re not this way with those they’re not romantically interested in.
