    INTJ or INTP? Help?

    I know that there are a lot of articles and videos on this topic already. Trust me, I've looked into them and I'm not satisfied with the answers they provide. I'd prefer to have a lively discussion with you guys instead. Seems much more fun.

    I am going to try to keep it concise.
    I got into this whole thing around 2 months ago since it seemed fun enough.

    I took the test several times on 16personalities.com and got INTJ. I've read the summary and I was impressed with the level of accuracy. Especially since I didn't expect anything to begin with.

    However, when I looked into INTP I realized there are plenty of things I can relate to as well. Suspecting that all descriptions are vague on purpose I looked through other personality types as well. I felt like no other type applied.

    After that I decided to take the cognitive test here and got these results.

    I made sure to repeat the test and spent some time analyzing the questions.
    Hopefully I understood them properly.

    So, I decided to ask you guys for your opinion. Do you have some methods that can help me determine my type?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    What is your work ethic like?

    Using Te a lot is something an INTP does not give a lot of credit to. We may use it to operate Ti, but it does not hold up on its own to justify any action whatsoever. If you believe your decisions to rationally come from within (not placed easily on external facts or criteria such as immediate consequences) and your actions themselves to be more chaotic (as contributed by Ne) then you are INTP.

    Another way to think of it: INTJ will be more goal oriented within external reality, every thought process is guided by some externally motivated goal. Not so with INTP at all.

    I can relate. I was stuck somewhere between INFP and INTP for months before I finally decided I was an INTP. But even now, I express almost as many Feeling traits as I do Thinking traits. I just feel that as a whole, I relate more to the NT temperament than I do to the NF temperament. Maybe you should ask friends what they think. Judging and Perceiving are outward preferences, so friends who see you on a regular basis may come in handy when trying to decide whether you're a J or a P.

    INTPs care less about morals. An INTJ will rampage the crap out of Fe structures in society. INTP would be like: "Freedom, Murica!" Then walk away to think about technical things.

    It's complicated. I haven't done any serious work in a very long time.

    As an INTJ I used to justify it by saying that I haven't found my goal life. I felt like everything was pointless so there wasn't any particular goal worth committing to. I don't really care about school and my grades are quite lacking at the moment.

    I do however spend very large amounts of time reading about random stuff on the internet.
    Just the other day I spent my entire day reading about the Chernobyl disaster.
    I have a lot of trouble focusing on my school work.

    I don't know if it's because I have no ultimate goal or I'm just lazy.
    I seemed to use the first explanation up until this point.

    This sounds like me. Very INTP.

    I vote INTP as well.
    We can have quite a good work ethic if something is needed of us or in time we have clear goal. But we tend to get carried away by our curiosity about things when we are not under pressure.

    Describe how you behave around other people, with as much detail and correlated stuff as you can.
