Hello INTP's! What is the highest level of education that you have completed as of right now? Advanced professional degrees (MD, JD, DO, etc.) are considered doctorate-level for the purposes of this poll.

If you're wondering what I intend to do with the results, check out my blog post here: MBTI Correlation Project - Blogs - PersonalityCafe

Tag me or quote me if you want to get my attention on this thread. If there's an option you would like to select, but isn't available, let me know and I'll enter your information manually if possible.

Thanks in advance for responding!

I am currently the equivalent of part-way through high school, though I intend to go on to get a Master's degree or PhD. I answered pre-high school grad.

Got 3 semesters of college done, then I realized getting a degree is a waste of my money and time.

Associate's degree level of education - I'll be starting my third year of college tomorrow. Going for a bachelor's at least, a Master's if I can find the motivation.

Bachelor's Degree, + a few assorted classes for either work or for college credit. But not really a push toward an actual Master's. After my kids get through school, I'll see if I need to do that for my career... it's a lot of money.

Currently in my first semseter of college so I chose high school. I plan on getting my bachelors in about 4 or 5 years from now (5 years if I participate in a program with internships and a job while studying).

Bachelors with a bunch of other classes that I didn't use. In January I'm starting classes for network admin, which is just a few certificates.

I was on my second semester of my associates when I dropped out due to overwhelming circumstances and depression. I kinda want to go back, but it won't be any time soon really.

Unfortunately I think the age demographic of PersC will seriously inflate these poll results. Would be better to ask adults who have finished their education but yeah.

Anyway, MA here. Intending to get a PhD eventually Some Day in the Future TM.

Hey INTP's, I wanted to say thank you to those who've voted on this and contributed to the discussion so far. However, many people throughout the site have noted that this poll doesn't take into account age or the current pursuit of a new diploma, degree, or certificate, and doesn't allow for non-traditional achievement such as vocational school. These issues had crossed my mind before, but I made some big assumptions and ended up ignoring the potential flaws. I've realized now that that was a big mistake that will render any data gathered from here useless. This poll will remain open for anyone who wishes to vote or discuss the issue; however, I will not be using this data for the project detailed in the OP and I will open a new poll on this subject at some point in the near future.

I spent 4 years in a two year gunsmithing program ( the last two were for fun that's my story and I'm sticking to it. )
but combined sleep apnina and ADD will keep you out of most any collage.

I've graduated high school, done a year of uni, and now in my first year of my Bachelor's degree program.
Age is definitely a factor in this. If you're curious about what level INTPs typically achieve, I'd make the poll more "have attained/WORKING TO ATTAIN"...

Currently, finished A-levels in college (equivalent to end of high school in the US) and am in my second year of a BA. I plan on doing at least an MA after, then it depends on what funding I can get...
