Hey guys, first time I'm posting here.

I checked out a test a few months ago (16personalities) and found out that I was INTP. I wasn't satisfied, so I ran through a lot of cognitive functions tests, and the most common result was INTP, followed by ENTP and INTJ.

So naturally, I'm confused.

-I'm a little bit reserved, because socialization spends a lot of my energy. but still, I socialize a bit at school

-I think a lot, and I like philosophy.

-I like to come up with theories, with a lot of complex details, just for fun.

-I have a lot of books around (mostly non-fiction) but I'm too lazy to read all of them

-My imagination is very robust, and I can visualize a lot of concepts (That's the only way I can understand science and mathematics)

-I have a great interest in computers, and love to program

-I'm quite lazy, and don't implement a lot of my plans and concepts.

-I used to get into conflict a lot before, but nowadays I'm quite friendly

-I won't say I'm open-minded, but I accept a fair amount of ideas

-Any theoretical idea I have, should have a practical use for me to get interested in it

-I've been called arrogant a number of times

-I'm quite energetic

-I like learning languages, and have an soft spot for some poems

-I'm very independent

Edit: My Enneagram type is 5w6w4 (6 and 4 have equal scores next to 5)

I will answer any other questions you guys might raise.

Thanks a lot in advance.

you're definitely an INTx but I could see why you're confused, you mentioned traits of both INTP and INTJ in there.

Do you know about cognitive functions by any chance?

INTPs are more sensitive to other's emotions than INTJ

INTJs are more materialistic and trendy than INTPs

INTJs are more practical than INTPs

INTPs are more creative than INTJs

INTPs have subjective logic, INTJs like to have their logic backed up by reputable sources

INTPs appear more silly and scatterbrained than INTJs. INTJs appear more serious and put together.

INTPs have more of a soft spot and respect for the past

could go either way

-I think a lot, and I like philosophy.

could go either way

-I like to come up with theories, with a lot of complex details, just for fun.

more INTP

-I have a lot of books around (mostly non-fiction) but I'm too lazy to read all of them

more INTP

-My imagination is very robust, and I can visualize a lot of concepts (That's the only way I can understand science and mathematics)

more INTJ but could go either way

-I have a great interest in computers, and love to program

could go either way

-I'm quite lazy, and don't implement a lot of my plans and concepts.

more INTP

-I used to get into conflict a lot before, but nowadays I'm quite friendly

would say this feels more INTP, INTPs are more aware of conflict than INTJs are. INTPs are secretly people pleasers but they would never admit it. INTJs are not at all.

-I won't say I'm open-minded, but I accept a fair amount of ideas

could go either way

-Any theoretical idea I have, should have a practical use for me to get interested in it

more INTJ. INTJs Te is interested in ideas that are practical, INTPs don't care much about practicality.


-I've been called arrogant a number of times

could go either way

-I'm quite energetic

I feel like this is something an Ne user would say. more INTP

-I like learning languages, and have an soft spot for some poems

could go either way but sounds more INTP

-I'm very independent

could go either way both types are very independent.

bolded is what I think each point leads toward between INTJ and INTP.

based on this my gut says you're INTP but it's still up for debate.
