The Critical INTp


By Sara Csaky [INTp]

“A red breasted robin in a cage puts all the world in a rage.” Though William Blake may not have been thinking of an INTp as he wrote the line quoted it makes a charming metaphor for this type. Though the INTp may break down intellectual and social barriers odds are he will feel like he never took flight. He is an effective artist of the world, always looking for ways that he might change it to better heed his needs. He is an intellectual dreamer so lost in his own world that when shaken from his mind me may at first appear lost and distant.

An eloquent and effective speaker, he can make the most mundane things seem quite amazing with his extravagant verbal skills. The INTp is very often fluent in several languages and may have even made up his own as a child. He is very mathematically inclined due to his ability to understand structure and patterns. The INTp shows an intense interest in religion and is more often than not delving into his studies of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and any other religion ancient or modern that strikes his interest. He shows a mish mash of beliefs and usually does not commit to one religion or the other.

Socially he is charming and charismatic. When feeling sociable he will approach others with child like enthusiasm and a sardonic wit. However when not feeling social he is aloof and temperamental. The INTp puts up barriers and will rarely let them down. He is very guarded and worried that people are judging him because he himself is constantly quietly observing humans. The INTp is very skeptical about love, and though he wants more than anything to love, when he does he thinks himself foolish and quickly backs out of the relationship. As a rule he keeps a distance between himself and his friends. One of his biggest fears is to rely on someone emotionally.

The INTp is self-confident to a fault. He loves a debate not only to prove his point to the person he is sparing with but also to confirm his own beliefs. The study of human behavior is very important to him. He can be blunt and insensitive to others simply to see their reaction. He can also be a kind sensitive listener, though he does not like to give advise due to his fear of doing more harm than good. He is calm, restrained and often unreadable.

Perfect chaos is the only way to describe the choice living conditions for the INTp. He will leave the laundry and dishes undone, but the small important things to him are kept in perfect order. It is not uncommon for him to alphabetize and categorize his movie and book collections. The INTp will collect and study odd things such as, fossils, rocks, and old photographs. Things that most people might find boring are quite fascinating and important to him. He is bothered if he finds such small important things out of order and prone to fly into a rage if they are touched by one other than himself.

The INTp is incredibly instinctive. He often knows what the out come of any given situation will be. He rarely gets himself into grave trouble for this reason. He is aware of this ability but is often unwilling to share it if he has not been taken seriously in this aspect in the past.

INTp by Function

Ni: The first function of the INTp is Ni, by which the essence of ideas arrive and insights into their development arise. With this function, it is possible index from within ones self an active belief system developed and derived through time, experience, knowledge, and the patterns of ones own personal life as entered through what could be considered a living journal. Every day and every hour and every minute of a person’s life is catalogued within this journal for future considerations and also for review of past successes and mistakes in order to make stunning predictions into the development of various concepts. Being an introverted function, Ni has an active ability to self-sustain itself and moves actively between an abstract theoretical world located in the future and past in order to sustain itself as an active function.

Ne:
The seventh function of the this type is Ne. Strong and lacking, it remains to the INTp something to be loathed. Though some use may come from this function in the tracking of events, patterns, and simple gauging of current potential, this function remains the vehicle by which tradition establishes itself and the foreign get thrown out. For the INTp, Ne truly represents all that inferiority is and the uselessness of false potential, and so long as old beliefs remain and there remains something to be cherished, traditional belief stands before the new! Disloyalty to a cherished, strong, and qualified belief system will never interest an INTp!

Te: The second function of the INTp is Te, by which objective logic substantiates itself through various thought processes. With this function, it is possible to collect multiple thoughts, modes and trends of thinking in order to register them into a structured and growing databank of strong, factual knowledge. Te also maintains an active neutral stance on all of the whole of its inputs, even if the whole of the input of one thought process conflicts with any of the other core processes it remains non-biased and registers them all as equals. Probably the most powerful aspect of Te is the power to not only stay well informed of new ideas, trends, and changing modes of thinking that may be utterly critical to survival in competitive atmospheres, but the ability to convince through logical implementations objectively designed to reorganize and even direct the thinking of others into certain modes of logical reasoning. Being an extroverted function, Te cannot derive data from within and must amass information from outside of itself and in the here and now to survive as a function or at all.

Ti: The eigth function of the this type is Ti. Strong and lacking, it remains to the INTp something to be loathed. Though some use may come from this function in the analysis of thought, structure, and logic, this function remains the vehicle by which the old becomes abandoned and the new comes about. For the INTp, Ti truly represents all that inferiority is and the uselessness of false potential, and so long as new ways of thinking emerge and there remains something to be considered, out with the old and in with the new! Loyalty to a strong qualified stream of thought will never interest an INTp!

Si: The third function of the INTp is Si, by which the essence of experiences arrive and insights into their development arise. Since the INTp type thrives in a world of abstract and non-concrete theoretical principles, it may be rendered difficult for this type to maintain from within an active index of all experiences developed and derived through time, and the patterns of ones own personal life as gauged through the senses. In result of this inability, expected behaviors should include losing track of ones own physical state and a deterioration of healthy physical practices, avoiding surrounding details or noticing too much detail and obsessing about it, suspicion or defensiveness about personal appearance, distant physical look in eyes and appearing to others as though unaware, walking or looking past people, objects, and things as though they were not there, static taste and inflexible habits, unsure of aesthetic understanding, or an obsession with cleanliness.

Se: The fifth function of the INTp is Se, by which the essence of experiences arrive and insights into their development arise.Though be this a weak, unconscious, and influential function, it should find itself most active within the presence of one whose dominant function coincides, for it it seeks to be strong and may pretend to be such. At other times, an expression of this function may find itself in place of the weak and conscious Si function. Manifested bahaviours expected of this function should include demonstrating a tendency to exagerrate the effects of current experiences to seem better or worse than in reality, tending to accept the outcomes of negitive experiences or to tolerate bad reoccuring situations, ignorantly leaving good or bad experiences for bad or worse ones, tendency towards manipulating statistics into a favorable direction, and prone to biased onesidedness.

Fe: The fourth function of the INTp is Fe, by which subjective feeling substantiates itself through various ethical processes. Since the INTp type thrives in a world of logical and non-ethical and objective principles, it may be rendered difficult for this type to collect and comprehend the multiple feelings, modes and trends of the emotions of others and to react to those emotions. In result of this inability, expected behaviors should include a lack of politeness and consideration towards others, rude behaviors with bad manners or extremly well mannered, lack of enthusiasm and interest in whatever others may find emotionally satisfying, lack of emotional control with sudden unexpected outburst or totally devoid of emotion, appearing emotionally distant to others or unintentionally discouraging the emotional approaches of others.

Fi: The sixth function of the INTp is Fi, by which subjective feeling substantiates itself through various ethical processes. Though be this a weak, unconscious, and influential function, it should find itself most active within the presence of one whose dominant function coincides, for it it seeks to be strong and may pretend to be such. At other times, an expression of this function may find itself in place of the weak and conscious Fe function. Manifested bahaviours expected of this function should include imagining or demonstrating an inability to tell if others are with or against him or her, obsessive tendencies towards paranoia and possible attempt at domination in result of that paranoia, problems discerning the diffrence between good and bad and may even accidently and unintentionally distort the line between the two, prone to lack of effection until certain of seeing a return, and attempts to win the love of others in ways that seem contradictory or abusive, and lack of emotional connectivity to others.

________________________________________
Because of the structureof various function, it is not uncommon for a person to be confused or undecided between various types and even between the usage of various functions. The following is a functional description of various types that an actual INTp may become confused or undecided between.


ENFp - An INTp may find him or her self activelly undecided between the ENFp type and his or her native INTp type. Because the sixth function of the INTp is Fi, it is not uncommon for one to confuse the second creative function (Te) for that function. When this occurs, an INTp may have problems deciding between those ethical and logical functions. In even more complex situations, an INTp may demonstrate what appears to be a false lack of Ti, which corresponds to the fourth weakest function of the ENFp. In this instances, the way to discern between these two types and to choose the correct one is to determine whether you activelly use Ni or Ne. If you use Ni more than you use Ne, you are an INTp. If you use Ne more than you use Ni, you could really be an ENFp.

INFj - An INTp may confuse him or her self for a INFj for the same reason that one would confuse his or her self for an ENFp. If you use Ni more than you use Ne, you are probably an INTp. If you use Ne more than you use Ni, you could really be an INFj.

INFp - An INTp usually becomes confused between this type and his or her native INTp when he or she has decided upon being an introvert, determined self as a perceiving type, and has been having some influence from the sixth function, while not really being sure if that function is introverted or extroverted. In this senerio, instead of a INTp confusing his or her self for an ENFp the extroverted or introverted type has been substituted. In this instance, the way to discern between these two types and to choose the correct one is to determine whether you activelly use more Fi or Fe. If you use Fi more than you use Fe, you are probably an INTp. If you use Fe more than you use Fi, you could really be an INFp.

ENTp
- Because of the influence of MBTI, some new to socionic's theory may ignorantly think that the correct way to switch between introverted and extroverted types is to simply switch an E to an I or an I to an E. This is not the correct way to switch back and forth between the two in socionics. If you are an ENTp in MBTI with an emphasis on expressing Ni and Te, your actual socionics type is either an INTp if you choose to stay a perceiving type or ENTj if you find that you might want to consider being a socionic's judging type . On the otherhand, if the above INTp description does not relate to you and you functionally express Ne and Ti, ENTp is still an option, though be warned that socionics does not totally follow the same logic as MBTI does when determining J and P nor do the same stereotypical rules apply when attempting to determine introversion and extroversion. If you are familiar with MBTI, the possibility of having to type yourself totally diffrent than MBTI should be a definite expectation.

This isn't the MBTI INTP; The socionics INTp is equivalent to the MBTI INTJ.

The INTp functions are Ni dom, followed by Te... which are the INTJ functions.
Not necessarily, I think. You're right, the functions are different compared to the mbti INTP but the type is still perceiving and not judging. That means you can't just turn around both descriptions, I think it's a individual question for every single person if the socionics description also fits, meaning he or she is INTP in both systems.

An INTJ or INTP in mbti is just a INTx in socionics.

Edit: You can take a look at this article if you don't believe me.

Have you ever met a MBTI INTP who is also a socionics' INTp? Because every single one of the MBTI socionics has turned out to be an socionics INTj.

I tested as a INTp in socionics a while ago, but the description didn't fit me at all quite as good as the INTj one did.

Yes. It was me.

Of course, it's different. But you can check out the subtypes because I read that an INTP in MBTI equals an Te-INTp in socionics. And a MBTI INTJ is most likely a Ne-INTj. I don't know if it's true, but it appeared to be reasonable. After I got the impression of both typologies, I would say that socionics is the better one. The intertype realtions alone are a great advantage.

That last part about "rarely getting into grave trouble," I find to be quite the opposite, given our tendency to question the irrational and undermine authority. But there are variations to any generalization. ;)


I thought this one completely nailed it too:


INTP Profile
In general, INTPs are known for their quest for logical purity, which motivates them to examine universal truths and principles. They are constantly asking themselves and others the questions "Why?" and "Why not?". Clear and quick thinkers, they are able to focus with great intensity on their interests. They appreciate elegance and efficiency in thought processes and require them, even more so, in their own communications. They may be seen as unwilling to accept what everyone else regards as truth. While often low key in outward appearance and approach, the INTP is "hard as nails" when challenging a truth. INTPs do not like to deal with the obvious. They are at their best in building conceptual models and developing unusual and complex ideas.

INTP Life
As children, INTPs are inwardly focused, often enjoying their own thoughts more than the company of others. The INTP is full of questions, sometimes voiced, most often not. INTP children often challenge and even stump their elders. INTP children enjoy fantasy, mysteries, inventing, thinking and doing things that may be somewhat atypical for other children of their age, and they sense their uniqueness early on. If INTPs are fond of books or games, it is likely that their choices will not be the "current rage." If an INTP is fond of music, it is likely to be of an unusual sort.
INTPs tend to either respect and go along with society's rules, or to question and rebel against them. Their response to these rules depends on how the rules might affect them. When INTPs do not like the rules, they are quick to find the flaws in the rule makers' thinking, regardless of their status, position in the hierarchy, or renown. As young adults choosing careers, INTPs either set a course and work toward it quietly yet forcefully or continue to resist and rebel against society's expectations and "irrational rules."
Other INTPs, however, rebel against society's rules about education, marriage, family responsibilities, and work, because they seem irrational. These INTPs lead lives of quiet rebellion as a result. They jump from one idea and interest to the other and from one job to another, all in search of illusive logical purity.
INTPs may either focus in depth on a major interest, or move from one interest to another without showing others-friends, colleagues, and bosses-their reasons why. It is the process, the quest, that has been most interesting to them. Once they have found the answer, they do not often share it because the answer is obvious, and documenting the obvious is redundant. This attitude includes a tendency not to respond or speak up in groups, because the INTP feels that what he or she was going to say seems so obvious that no one would want to hear it. To the INTP's chagrin, someone else often speaks up, says the obvious, and gets the recognition for it. This particular behavior may be frustrating to the INTP, as well as to those with whom they interact.As INTPs mature, they continue their quest for logical purity, but now it includes more balance in their activities.
For many types, retirement signifies external changes in behavior and in lifestyle. For the INTP, however, external life is seen as incidental; internal life is "where the action is." Therefore, while external changes may occur, INTPs are less likely to change what is really important to them, what is going on in their internal world.
Thus, in retirement, INTPs often continue the activities that were important to them in their working life. It may be difficult for others to see where the working life stopped and retirement has begun. Just because INTPs no longer go to work does not mean that their minds are no longer at work.

INTPs at Work
INTPs contribute a logical, systems-building approach to their work. They like being the architect of a plan, because of the scheming and thinking involved, far more than being the implementer of that plan. Implementation tends to be drudgery.
They are content to sit back and think about what might work, given their view of the situation. INTPs may ignore standard operating procedures. The hours that they spend are not what is important to them, but rather the completion of their thought process. When their projects are of interest to them, they can become mesmerized and may even work through the night. When their projects are not intriguing, their work is considered drudgery, and the INTP finds it difficult to stay motivated.

Work Setting
The preferred work setting for the INTP contains independent thinkers focused on solving complex problems. The INTP enjoys a work environment that fosters independence and self-determination, that allows for privacy and quiet, and that is flexible and unstructured. They avoid meetings when possible. INTPs like to set their own goals and, if possible, choose how they are to be rewarded.

Organizing Style
INTPs prefer to organize ideas rather than situations or people. They can be relentless reorganizers of thoughts and concepts. They do not, however, seek to structure the outside world of activities and people, unless they must. They are recognized as people who are able to contribute conceptually about how to organize, but they may not directly apply these organizational concepts to their own lives.
The work space of the INTP is generally cluttered with papers, books, objects, or prototypes that are important to their interests and thoughts. It is difficult for an INTP to throw out things that may have a possible future relevance and, generally, many things have that possibility. When faced with the possibility of having to throw journals or books away, INTPs are often left with a sense of loss or discomfort, because they feel that they may throwaway things of critical importance.

Occupations
To perform well at work, individuals may need to use all of the eight preferences at the appropriate time and when required by the situation. Knowing this, people tend to select occupations that allow them to use the preferences that are most natural to them.
INTPs usually find a place in their work for using their logical and structured thinking. They enjoy work that allows them to abstract, to generalize beyond the data, and to build models.
Flexibility is desired, because INTPs like to "do the job when they want to do it and as they want to do it." They also prefer occupations in which the hierarchy is minimal and not important. This attitude stems from their firm belief that, to be legitimate, a hierarchy should be built on the competency of individuals who are logically placed according to their talents.
While INTPs can and do enter all occupations, some are more appealing to them than others. According to available research, some occupations (in alphabetical order) seem to be especially attractive to INTPs: biologist, chemist, computer programmer, computer systems analyst, lawyer, photographer, psychologist, researcher, surveyor, writer, and other occupations that allow INTPs to use their logical thinking in appropriate ways. These occupations are not meant to be an exhaustive list, but serve to illustrate some areas that an INTP might enjoy. If your specific occupation, or one that you are interested in, is not listed here, think instead of its general characteristics and ask yourself how those fit with your type.

INTPs in Love
For the INTP, love has three distinct phases: falling in, staying in, and getting out. These phases relate to their thinking preference and its need for order and sequence.
When an INTP falls in love, he or she falls hard-an "all or nothing" phenomenon. At this stage, INTPs are likely to be very lively, almost giddy, in their new love. The experience rushes over them and carries them along. They do not structure or control it but simply enjoy and experience it. During this stage, INTPs do many loving things, such as writing poetry, reading to the loved one, and buying gifts that have special meaning. They are curious about their loved one and are able to overlook his or her flaws.
Even quirky faults are enjoyed because they are something new to experience and examine. They may bravely ignore the realities of distance, weather, and time to be with the loved one.
As relationships progress to the staying-in-love phase, INTPs begin to evaluate their structure and form. They may withdraw at this point because they are moving toward their more customary inward style. Outward demonstrations of affection lessen, and the giddy state changes. Interactions are more matter of fact, perhaps even impersonal. INTPs take their commitments to their partner seriously; however, they may not discuss these commitments at any length with their partner or with other people, because their commitments seem so obvious to them.
The third phase, falling out of love, which may not always occur, results from an analysis of the real expectations and needs of the relationship. Often, an undefined line is crossed that neither partner knows about ahead of time. However, the INTP knows after the line has been crossed, and then the relationship deteriorates or ends. If INTPs recognize their emotions and needs as valid, they are able to sever relationship ties fairly cleanly. However, if they misjudge their own needs and those of their partner, the breakup can be messy, perhaps affecting other aspects of their lives for a long time. If the INTP shares some common (usually intellectual or conceptual) interests with the former loved one, the relationship continues, but on a different level. When INTPs have a reason to continue relationships, they do.

The primary function for INTPs in MBTI is Introverted Thinking, not iNtuition.

The Critical INTp

- I have put my answers as bold

By Sara Csaky [INTp]

“An eloquent and effective speaker, he can make the most mundane things seem quite amazing with his extravagant verbal skills. The INTp is very often fluent in several languages and may have even made up his own as a child. He is very mathematically inclined due to his ability to understand structure and patterns. The INTp shows an intense interest in religion and is more often than not delving into his studies of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and any other religion ancient or modern that strikes his interest. He shows a mish mash of beliefs and usually does not commit to one religion or the other.

- Ni-Te is an Introvert and though he has the Te, he can't be said to have great verbal skills. Then he is not a math person as that is a function of the Ti. Then, no NT is naturally interested of religion but is basically against; religion being second nature to NFs (and to STs).

Socially he is charming and charismatic. When feeling sociable he will approach others with child like enthusiasm and a sardonic wit. However when not feeling social he is aloof and temperamental. The INTp puts up barriers and will rarely let them down. He is very guarded and worried that people are judging him because he himself is constantly quietly observing humans. The INTp is very skeptical about love, and though he wants more than anything to love, when he does he thinks himself foolish and quickly backs out of the relationship. As a rule he keeps a distance between himself and his friends. One of his biggest fears is to rely on someone emotionally.

- He is nothing like that socially as he is an Introvert and an NT. When alone he hardly feels at all, being an NT and alone, not temperamental at all but one of the least if not the least temperamental ones. He is up to not at all worried about others' opinions as he is an NT, and what comes to observing, the Ni-Te hardly sees anything outside. About love, the NT has next to no idea about it, it being on the territory of the NFs. He also has no fears like that and I doubt he keeps any significant distance to friends outside of being an NT.

The INTp is self-confident to a fault. He loves a debate not only to prove his point to the person he is sparing with but also to confirm his own beliefs. The study of human behavior is very important to him. He can be blunt and insensitive to others simply to see their reaction. He can also be a kind sensitive listener, though he does not like to give advise due to his fear of doing more harm than good. He is calm, restrained and often unreadable.

- Ni-Te does not like to debate, it being the ENTP that is thought to like it and even he is not interested of the study of human nature until he has picked such an interest as humans are the area of the NFs, STs and somewhat to SFs, and only last to NTs. No NT debates to try to make himself think he is right, but he debates or states. Sensitive listener? He is an NT! And likes to debate! Fears giving advice as it might do harm? NT? And a debating one!

Perfect chaos is the only way to describe the choice living conditions for the INTp. He will leave the laundry and dishes undone, but the small important things to him are kept in perfect order. It is not uncommon for him to alphabetize and categorize his movie and book collections. The INTp will collect and study odd things such as, fossils, rocks, and old photographs. Things that most people might find boring are quite fascinating and important to him. He is bothered if he finds such small important things out of order and prone to fly into a rage if they are touched by one other than himself.

- Te, Fe, Ti and Fi are of the opposite direction of the Si/Ni and Se/Ne and have no major meaning in itself than the Si/Ni and Se/Ne. The Ti and Fi are introverted and the Te and Fe are extraverted (and that's all they mean) as a results of them being of the opposite direction to Se and Si.
- J and P are not functions in Socionics but by-products of the most dominant function (J=T/F; P=S/N).

- From the major parts, it's all simple when one understands the function.

I got through the first few paragraphs, but then got distracted when I noticed a spelling mistake...
Sparing, Sparring.

As soon as I read a typo I immediately lose all credibility for that author/person. It's strange, it's as if the piece is not perfect (meaning they aren't just as much a perfectionist and intelligent as I) I ignore it. I hate this. Also, the "good decisions" thing is not the boat I ride... I find that I often make bad decisions because I'm dissociated from my emotional self, observing it with just as much grandeur as another - instead of judging the decision in terms of right and wrong.

The functions in socionics are not the same as the functions in mbti -- period.

This article is about ILIs, and not all ILIs are mbti intjs!

Actually in my experience typing people in both systems, they can have completely different types cross-system; for example, I know an intp who is an LIE in socionics (Te Ni).
