    INTP - The Thinkers

    how many of these do you identify with?

    1. You wake up in the middle of the night with a brilliant idea that is completely impractical and can’t get back to sleep until you’ve worked out every little detail.
    2. You indulge in (and are quite renowned among friends for) making completely random, yet very accurate observations.
    3. You have a million good ideas and a thousand unfinished projects.
    4. You say more in the 2 sentences that you do say than most people do in the their 7,596 sentences.
    5. Once you obsess over something and later master it, it gets boring and you move on.
    6. You ignore things that most people laugh at because they are obvious and stupid, and you are the only one laughing at something subtle and clever.
    7. You debate with yourself about the meaning of every word.
    8. Social relationships are a paradox to you, but you can blend in rather well. “Chameleon” is a word you can relate to.
    9. People think you are unobservant when, really, you simply notice different things than most.
    10. You’re often told that you think too much.
    11. You can get a lot done – as long as it’s the stuff you’re not meant to be doing.
    12. You confuse everyone around you with words far too long for casual conversation.
    13. You’re not paranoid, it’s all perfectly logical.
    14. Sometimes you come up with something that you think is exactly how you wanted to put it, but people just get more confused, despite how simple it seems to you.
    15. You have spent a whole night of not sleeping, pondering something, and then after asking someone about it the next day, realize that you’re the only one who seems to care.
    16. You have intentions to do anything and everything… eventually.
    17. You refuse to do some things in the name of “intellectual principles”.
    18. You can give logical justification for every action you’ve ever taken.
    19. When you tell your parents/employer your room/office is “not trashed! It’s got complex order!”
    20. When you obsessively use parenthesis or slashes in your sentences (well not necessarily in your sentences; just running off on tangents when speaking/writing, and being in the necessity to find a means of keeping it all clear).


    i think it is eerily accurate.
    especially 2, 4, 7, 10-16, and 20 (really, it's almost reflexive).

    Wow, change up a few words or actions here and there and you describe me almost perfectly. Such a pity that we are a minority right?

    21: You think of random things without context, say it while making perfect sense to yourself, and noone else understands it.

    14. Sometimes you come up with something that you think is exactly how you wanted to put it, but people just get more confused, despite how simple it seems to you.


    Story of my life, especially when explaining something at work. The urge of shaking someone while exclaiming "This is so obvious! Why don't you get it?!" is overwhelming.

    20. When you obsessively use parenthesis or slashes in your sentences (well not necessarily in your sentences; just running off on tangents when speaking/writing, and being in the necessity to find a means of keeping it all clear).
    I do this quite often whilst blogging, especially the use of the /.

    18. You can give logical justification for every action you’ve ever taken.
    And this annoys people for some reason! Maybe they're just mad that they can't justify their own actions

    19. When you tell your parents/employer your room/office is “not trashed! It’s got complex order!”
    Oh sure I've used excuses like this, but even I'm not buying them!

    20. When you obsessively use parenthesis or slashes in your sentences (well not necessarily in your sentences; just running off on tangents when speaking/writing, and being in the necessity to find a means of keeping it all clear).
    Oh wow, is that an INTP trait? (I do it ALL the time)

    4. You say more in the 2 sentences that you do say than most people do in the their 7,596 sentences.
    Yes, as long as the parenthetical stuff doesn't count as it's own sentence! And now that we realize those two sentences won't be understood by anyone else anyway, we may as well be spouting nonsense in them!

    I kept chuckling while reading this. "haha, yep, that's me. haha, yeah, that too." etc, etc...

    These particular ones all are so true of me.

    make up some more!

    22) You surprise people with the things that come out of your mouth, and then go back to being a hermit. Most people know you as the "quiet genius", but only you know how loud and messy it is inside your mind.
    23) Any combination of any thing is assumed a possible means to an end, like lamps and forks.
    24) Your epiphanies never happen on command, but when they click, that small sense of enlightenment is enough to make you feel like a king... for a little while.
    25) You want to grab people on the street and tell them how incredible the world is, but you're too depressed by the anticipated apathy, which makes you bitter and cynical towards the human race... but they're so fascinating!
    26) Of course feelings can be rationalized!
    27) Two words: Why not?
    28) It takes you 3x as long to process "I will love you forever" than Schrödinger's equation.
    29) You have a love-hate relationship with ENTPs.
    30) You're reading about optics... in the middle of a party. You like being abnormal; also, it feels good.
    31) All this gathered knowledge pays off eventually at random situations when you get to apply it or talk about it. If only this actually happened with the things you SHOULD be learning about.
    32) Three words: Wikipedia Hopscotch Clicking.*


    *probably attributed to other types, as well...

    3, 4,
    5 (but usually I get bored at the halfway point, because it’s usually so obvious how things will turn out),
    6 (all the time. But one time I found myself laughing at something that only one other person in the group laughed at-- and he was known for a rather... non-funny sense of humor. T.T),
    7 (Oh boy, do I ever.),
    8 (social relationships make no real sense, but I’m not especially chameleon-like),
    9, 10,
    11 (hahahaaaa, hooboy yes.),
    12 (my boyfriend regularly consults a dictionary or the Google when talking to me.),
    13,
    14 (all the gorram time.),
    15 (I spent a lunch with my employers pondering the physics of rocket propulsion in null space, and when I commented on it, they spent the next five minutes wondering why I even cared.),
    16 (haha YES),
    17 (frequently),
    18 (though my logic may not match up with everyone else's),
    19 (lol yep, but I’m usually lying),
    20 (couldn’t you tell?)

    21-32 TO THE LETTER. Hahaha, these’re fun.

    Unknown Personality

    Well, got to say, that I said "yes" to nearly every single one of them. :)


    Edit: even to the latter, additional one's.

    (and yes, I anticipate most of you chuckling at this)
    AirMarionette and AkiKaza thanked this post.
