    Compare the INTP and INTJ social ineptness

    We're both pretty awkward in our own ways, it's just the nature of being an introverted rational type.

    On the NFGeeks youtube channel Mike talks about how both INTx's are weird and awkward, but the INTJ is more weird while the INTP is more awkward. Seems kind of accurate imo.

    What do you guys think? Anything specifically?

    The thought process behind the introversion is largely different, even if it's externally perceived as similar. I think the INTP's particular brand of introversion has more in common with INFPs or ISTPs.

    I think INTPs are more likely to come off as the stereotype of 'nerds', they have a more friendly and funny presence. Whilst INTJs have a harsher critical quality to them, like hardcore edgy nerds (actually I don't think awkward is the best word for INTJs at all like it is for INTPs). I only know two INTJ guys and to me they were both normal people who were athletic and had a good dress sense etc. (they just appeared a little bit smarter than most people).

    I don't prefer to sink down to a level where a cognitive orientation,
    is determined by whatever label has been normatively assigned,
    to whatever stereotype you seem to link up to those two cognitive sets.

    You're free to keep floating up there in the ether if you like, but I wouldn't say you have a whole lot of respectable company.

    Jung certainly thought that the various types (as he conceived them) tended to differ from each other in countless observable ways — including (to take the OP's example) how "weird" and "awkward" they tended to come across to others.

    Do you view Jung as a silly "stereotyper"? Do you do your best to avoid "sinking" to his level?

    No cause he stated pretty clearly that he was very adamant to even create the types to begin with.
    I don't really want "respectable" company anyway.
    Respectable people tend to be a huge drag on the fun factor.

    I'd be more inclined to say that a poster who comes into a new thread and haughtily announces that he refuses to "sink down" to a "level" low enough to talk about the issues raised in the OP is more likely to be a "drag on the fun factor."

    I don't really care about your apprisal of my contribution.
    I said what I said because I felt it fit.
    If you have a beef with that I can arrange a date with my ignore list.

    INTPs are more awkward but they're more unaware of it so they care even less, except when they do the weird "Fe thing" and look like big babies
