Most of the personality tests I’ve taken have turned up INTJ, save for one given to me by a college counselor. But I was reading up on INTP personality types, and I have to wonder …
It actually sounds more accurate. And not because the descriptions of this type present a more laudable version of…
I’ve asked myself this question several times and the truth is, I still do. But more than trying to see whether you fit in with ‘INTJ traits’ or ‘INTP traits’ try to find out more about the functions. Are you dominant Ni or Ti? Auxiliary Te or Ne? I’m a messy INTJ myself, very open-minded and my social skills are lacking but not non-existant. In fact, I read in an INTP discussion that they’re even more awkward in social situations than INTJs, since we don’t find putting up a facade every once in a while.
So, the always-cool and emotionless fame we have? We build it ourselves. It’s about survival, but not how we really are.
Then again, remember that the MBTI is just a theory about personality type, there’s no way that someones personality is black or white enough to fit into a single type, out of /only/ 16 options!
Either way, whatever suits your fancy.
