Ah shit, I misread what you said. With how you phrased "most INTP and ISTP with a strong IxTP," I thought you implied that INTPs are excluded from those arbitrary correlations because of reasons unspecified (most likely intuition, which is pretty ironic since autists are fairly decipted and reported to not have great intuition). Yeah, your phrasing made me confused there.
A little grammatical note, by the way: Add s's to abbreviations to make them plural.
There are no "differences". People with AS can have all MBTI types of the rainbow.
You're disregarding the key elements of asperger's. The inability to read social situations from nonverbal clues and a lack of empathy. Look into the deficit of mirror neurons.
The real question here is: how much of an upside would there be to being labelled Asperger over INTP?
If someone was handed a list of diagnostic criteria for aspergers and a list of character/personality traits and internal feels associated with aspergers, they would be far more likely to associate themselves with the list of feels. A doctor as I know them, wouldn't judge someone to have aspergers because of impressions of intelligence and deep thought for example. Like a completely unafflicted person cannot think about deep subjects or be good at math. There is always that hint of superiority in there, which is always contrasted by the actual criteria which do not require such abilities or tendencies.
The big two categories are problems with social interaction and problems with inflexibility. That is the issues with hyper focus on certain topics and inability to be spontaneous, inability to break away from a routine way of doing things. If these don't sound like "clinically significant" problems that impact life then I wouldn't jump on board the label train.
