6 Reasons Why INTJ and INTP Fall In Love

Published by:

intj intp relationship

The INTP INTJ relationship is likely to make for a very smart couple. David Keirsey, author of “Please Understand Me” observed that INTJs are highly selective of their romantic partners and perhaps the most systematic of all the MBTI types in their approach to INTJ dating. They screen potential partners in the same methodical manner they employ to their impersonal projects. INTPs by contrast may have a more open handed attitude towards finding a mate but generally speaking, they do not go out of their way to find one.

    Published by:

    “The first half of life is devoted to forming a healthy ego, the second half is going inward and letting go of it.”
    - Carl Jung

    You have only one life to live and what you get out of it largely depends on your ability to grow and develop as a person. Each of us has a unique story and life path to follow and along the way will come challenges that reveal our strengths and expose our weaknesses. Using the MBTI, we can learn to recognize aspects of our personality that are underdeveloped and then work to improve them. Recognizing your cognitive weak points is the first step in fortifying them but you can also take some solace knowing that other people with your MBTI type share your struggle. Here is a look at some of the areas in which each MBTI personality type can focus on improving to be the best they can be.

    Published by:

    Deep INTP Quotes

    With all that introverted thinking they do, it is no wonder why INTP people develop insights that are profound, poignant and deeply thoughtful. The INTP mind transcends the limitations of concrete reality to ponder concepts and potentiations plucked from the ethereal tree of their imagination. Their thinking often starts with one idea and then ramifies into numerous strands of meaningful associations and relationships that appear like a labyrinth of meta-trails beckoning the INTP to explore. Here is a collection of 100 thoughtful quotes from famous INTP people that illustrate the wisdom of this personality type.

    33 Struggles of Being An Introvert

    Published by:

    Introvert personality

    In recent times it’s become more fashionable to be an introvert. A spate of pro-introvert books including Susan Cain’s Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, probably had a large role in catalyzing this cultural shift in attitude.

    That still doesn’t change the fact that the world is dominated by and mostly catered towards extroversion. Introverts often face many challenges in trying to survive or thrive within the extrovert society and it can often be very taxing. Here are 33 challenges introverts wrestle with on a daily basis. The struggle is real.

    1.) You’re at an office building walking several paces behind someone, and you slow down so you won’t have to take the same elevator as them.

    2.) When living in a household with multiple people, you arrange your sleep habits so that you do things when people are either away or asleep.

    3.) You’re anxious about upcoming holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas because of all the family get-togethers and you just can’t wait for it to be over with.

    4.) You spend time fully forming responses to a discussion in your head, but never end up saying them aloud.

    5.) When random people you don’t know try to engage you, you keep your answers brief, in the hopes the conversation will die out.

    6.) You have to make up b**sht excuses for not wanting to go out because “I just want to be alone” is not understood by the majority of the population. And some people take it personally.

    7.) People who don’t know you well often perceive you as conceited or arrogant if you seem confident yet avoid group activities and keep to yourself most of the time.

    8.)When you hear someone knocking at the door and you hide behind something so they can’t see you through any windows.

    9.) When with a large group of people who are chattering away about something, and one of them suddenly asks you, “what do you think, Castruccio?”, and you have no idea what to say because you’ve been zoning out the entire time and haven’t heard a word of the conversation.

    10.) You prefer to use your own car everyday, than car polling with your co-workers, because you can’t stand talking and make ridiculous conversations through out the ride.

    11.) You create colorful characters in your mind to compensate for the grayscale palette of people around you in real life.

    12.) There are like two people who you actually consider a friend.

    13.) You avoid eye-contact, since that may lead to chit-chat.

    14.) You go through the McDonald’s drive-through, receive your food, then park your car in the parking lot just to avoid prolonged human contact while you eat.

    15.) You can manage to joke around and have a conversation with the person behind you in line to buy groceries, but then you start to feel really awkward and anxious and pay as quickly as possible and leave without saying goodbye because you don’t know what else to say….

    16.) You know you are an introvert when you are talking to someone and get interrupted by someone else and you stand there for 5+ minutes saying nothing until their conversation is done.

    17.) When you only go to the grocery store after 10 PM because it is so calm and empty. A lot less chance of bumping into people you kinda know.

    18.) You have an escape route and/or hiding place for when people ring the doorbell.

    19.) When you hide in the bathroom for ten minutes while other people are saying long emotional goodbyes.

    20.) When you go into complete panic mode when you’re in a situation where you can’t escape other people.

    21.) You’d rather be outside, waiting in the sweltering sun than to have to wait inside a place where it’s overcrowded, noisy, and filled with loud teenagers and their profane, asinine talking.

    22.) When you drive around the block three times before going to your class reunion and have to force yourself to pull into the parking lot and walk in.. and then you’re so frozen you embarrass yourself by not recognizing people right away.

    23.) When you jaywalk across the road just to avoid talking to someone on the sidewalk.

    24.) You become secretly relieved when a social event gets cancelled, this means you can stay home.

    25.) You tell your parents and entire family not to bother buying tickets to your graduation because you aren’t going. No ifs, no buts. It’s not happening. They can just send your diploma in the mail.

    26.) You know you’re an introvert when you count the number of people in a room before deciding weather or not it’s worth going into.

    27.) You sometimes find lying a much better option because explaining is such a herculean task to do.

    28.) When you can’t stand going shopping with people and when you are in the store you don’t want to hear the phrase “how can I help you?”

    29.) You prefer texting to making an actual phone call, and Facebooking to actual human contact. You don’t always mind talking to people, but get tired of it after some time.

    30.) You’d rather go to a dental appointment than a nightclub.

    31.) You know you are an introvert when, just after recharging, you are jealous of the extroverts all around you who can socialize normally and easily have friendships and whatnot, but just before recharging, all you can think is, “UGHH I HATE ALL YOU PEOPLE SO MUCH JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!”

    32.) You stay up late, partially because it takes you that long to unwind after being with people all day, and partially because you need your alone time before it happens all over again tomorrow.

    33.) You finally found somewhere to sit that’s away from everyone else, then feel personally attacked when someone sits by you.

    99 Struggles Intuitive Types Will Understand

    Published by:


    Being an intuitive type isn’t always a rosy chalice of cherry wine cooler. Comprising roughly 25% of the population, intuitives are a minority in a world dominated by sensors. And yet, intuitives account for the majority of the world’s most brilliant and influential trailblazers and visionaries. Einstein (INTP), Newton (INTJ), Zuckerberg (INTJ), Martin Luther King Jr. (ENFJ), Steve Jobs (ENTJ), the list goes on. Intuitives live in the future-world of envisioned possibilities but this can present problems for them in the here-and-now. Here are 99 struggles that come along with being an intuitive.

    1. When you think of about five or more different concepts of time whilst walking to the kitchen but fail to notice that you forgot to open the door before trying to walk through it…

    2. You think Sensors seem to be “missing” something, and the Sensors think you aren’t all there.

    3. The real world bores you.

    4. When you try to explain something and you end up going into a dozen different tangents triggered by what you’re saying. You can be terrible at telling stories.

    5. When you’re always going on about how you just figured something out, but you’re often unable to explain what it is or provide any examples.

    6. When you spend several moments walking around looking for something you’ve been carrying in your hand.

    7. When you’ve seen something every day, and only processed it days/months/years later.

    8. When you throw something out in a conversation thinking it’s clearly a part of the conversation but no one understands where it’s coming from or how it’s relevant.

    9. When your train of thought forks and you try to follow both paths at once, but end up thinking about the pesky limitations of your human brain instead.

    10. You can spend hours talking theory about something you’ll never do.

    11. You tend to think people much older than you are more interesting than “kids your own age”, even once you’re well into adulthood.

    12. You wonder what it would be like to be a tire, and all the shit you’d have to go through.

    13. You want the glue that binds facts together… facts aren’t enough.. lists aren’t enough. You crave understanding.

    14. The random thoughts that run through your mind can crack you up and make it appear like you’ve gone mental to everyone around you.

    15. When you see something coming a mile away or a brilliant answer pops into your head and people are astounded by your ingenuity, but when they ask how you came to that conclusion, you can’t tell them because you don’t really know yourself.

    16. You lose track of time in the bathtub/shower because you’re daydreaming.

    17. When you have arguments with yourself and never really consider the possibility that you might be insane.

    18. When you have the urge to use a metaphor or simile to explain everything.

    19. When you always want to make shortcuts in your activities because repetition bores you.

    20. When you absolutely have to have a journal, pencil, and voice recorder in your purse at all times to capture random thoughts that you want to remember later.

    21. When you stop in the middle of what you’re doing to go google the correlation between something.

    22. When you sympathize with a 5 year old for being told to shut up from their parent after asking so many questions, because you’re just as inquisitive and can definitely relate.

    23. You constantly feel like you’re weird, and slowly going crazy.

    24. When you forget you’re walking down stairs and end up skipping the last two or three and continue like nothing happened.

    25. When you have long and elaborate conversations with people that are completely imaginary.

    26. When you keep seeing exploding dolphins…. GET OUT OF MY HEAD.

    27. When you’re off in your own world and then you jump or flinch because some starts talking to you.

    28. When your conversations can go from how stupid everyone is and censorship to why don’t men’s bathrooms have dick washing stations.

    29. When your thoughts are coming so quickly (and erratically) that you have a tendency to skip words when typing.

    30. When asking someone a question, you figure out the answer in your head before your mouth gets there, then try to explain that you’ve already got it – so all that comes out of your mouth is a complete load of half-word gibberish.

    31. Your teacher tells you that no one else ever asked that question before.

    32. When you open a browser and forget what you were looking for, and you have about 20 tabs open already.

    35. When you have random phrases that pop in your head, but you have no clue what they mean. However, this does not stop you from recording them in a journal since you feel like it was some sort of poetic epiphany.

    36. When you’ve considered paying someone to follow you around all day and tell you where you left your keys, remind you to shower and eat, and wake you up so you won’t be late for work every single morning, but then you realized you’d much rather just think about it than actually have to go through the process of finding someone to do it.

    37. When the thought of having sex arouses you more than actually performing.

    38. Your clarifications confuse the people around you even more.

    41. When you had plans of things you wanted to get done, but then you get competely sidetracked by an idea or something interesting online.

    42. When you’re studying and go to get a snack, and you accidentally leave your book in the fridge. But you can’t remember what you were studying so you don’t realize and just read another book. Which you then also leave in the fridge. True story. – lirulin (INTJ)

    43. When you constantly miss things that are right in front of your nose.

    44. When you can’t comprehend that a good portion of the population is unable to conjure up an image at will. Whereas YOU can conjure up 3D action-packed movies of the plot of your choosing in your mind, with all the special effects and intentional visual/audio changes you wish.

    51. When you take a little trip to the kitchen and 5 minutes after you’ve finished and are walking towards the living room you realize you put your phone in the fridge and are now carrying an eggplant. You don’t even try to figure out how that happened.

    53. You’re bad at giving directions because you really can’t recall precisely how you do each step.

    54. When, because you know yourself so well by now, you constantly remind yourself that you must’ve forgotten something. You think about it for a couple of minutes and make sure you have everything….and it seems that you actually haven’t forgotten anything, for once. Until the end of the day, as you’re lying in bed right before you go to sleep….you remember…you actually DID forget something.

    55. You space out even while watching things you enjoy.

    56. When your sense of place and direction are terrible because usually you never pay attention to where the people you’re with are driving or walking to. You just space out to think and suddenly you’re there in no time.

    57. When you redirect the conversation from gossip, to the universe but those conversations are so rare that you don’t really know how to handle it with strangers, so you make a joke and change the subject again. Besides, you can already predict all their possible responses.

    58. When upon getting an email, you compose a brilliant answer in your head, and maybe even type half of it out, and start wondering how your friend will respond to it. And then, a week later without a response to your genius, you realize you never actually sent it.

    59. When walking down the street or among a large crowd, your mind always gets blown by the idea that every single one of these people are thinking of something right now… it’s a bunch of little worlds walking around.

    33 Things Only Thinkers Will Relate To

    Published by:

    signs you are a thinker

    I Think Therefore I am… a “thinker”?

    Every conscious man and woman thinks, but true thinkers are cerebral to a fault. Logic is favored over sentiment; rationality over feeling. For those uncertain over what side of the fence they fall on, here are 33 things only thinkers will relate to.

    1. You’ve gotten in trouble more often for accusing your parents of being senseless than for anything you’ve actually *done*.

    2. When someone is talking, you think of a clever response of what to say but by the time you say it, it comes out differently then what you expected.

    3. When you look forward to trips because you want to think during the long ride there. And you HAVE to pick the window seat.

    4. When you feel depressed for no reason and conclude that it’s because you didn’t have enough for breakfast.

    5. When people are always asking you why you’re never happy but in reality you’re perfectly content.

    6. When you wish that all people would give away a computer-like “error” message every time something is wrong with them because you’re just. so. bad. at reading their signals.

    7. You take pleasure in making lists and classifying things.

    8. When your first response to emotion is to sit down and think about what it means.

    9. When you hear a joke about someone doing something rather irrational, you want to know why the person did such thing before laughing at the joke. “Why did he do that? That doesn’t make sense.” “Will you stop with the questions and just laugh instead?”

    10. When having an illogical argument with someone causes intense frustration and much mental anguish.

    11. When speaking with a feeler, you find the safest ground is to say the exact opposite of what you want to say.

    12. When someone tells you to examine your feelings and you suddenly remember you have those.

    13. When you correct your own grammar, logic, cliched thinking, etc. before someone else has a chance to do so, or even realize that you were in error.

    14. When you find yourself rationalizing an emotion and coming to the consensus that experiencing it is not effective towards your goal. Then you toss it into your subconscious.

    15. You argue for sport. Arguments are fun.

    16. When you talk about your brain like it’s a computer. (It’s shutting down. It’s multitasking. It’s running a bit slow today.

    17. You know you’re a thinker when you read and study posts by F-types simply to try and make some sort of sense out of it all, yet you still don’t understand.

    18. You’re a pro at weighing the pros and cons of any decision.

    19. You have considered at least once, how nice it would be to feel nothing but the urge to have sex, adrenaline rushes and hunger for more resources.

    20. When you think “The Silmarillion” will put you to sleep … and instead you get caught up in the appendices reading the linguistic definitions.

    21. You know your a thinker when you spend more time watching documentaries than any other form of television genre.

    22. When you think Sheldon Cooper does not act strangely at all.

    23. When the simple prospect of “cuddling” overwhelms you.

    24. When you have to consciously translate your internal dialogue into average human language before you speak.

    25. You can treat everything as though it were a game for you to beat.

    26. You can describe your feelings in terms of percentages and scales of 1 to 100.

    27. When you’re more curious about something than scared of it.

    28. When you thoroughly analyse whether you are a thinker or a feeler, quantifying the instances in which you were a thinker and then quantifying the instances in which you were a feeler.

    29. It drives you crazy when your Feeling mother asks you “how are you feeling?” because you have a hard time even identifying your feelings in the first place.

    30. When your coworker gives you a 15-minute monologue on why they can’t make a meeting and you sit there nodding your head and thinking, “who cares? Just tell me you can’t make it and that’s all I need to hear.”

    31. When you’re watching a Sci-Fi show or movie and you realize that it’s awfully convenient for everyone to know English.

    32. All of your relationships seem to end because you aren’t affectionate enough.

    33. When you have to remind yourself that expecting people to act rationally is in and of itself an irrational expectation.

    ENTP vs. INTP: How To Tell Them Apart | High on MBTI

    Published by:

    When listening to type descriptions, remember that “type portraits” can never accurately describe all people of a given type. Descriptions and portraits like these can only describe the types as they typically are.

    In ‘Psychological Types,’ Jung describes 8 main types, but does in practice refer to the dominant-auxiliary combinations popularized by later authors, such as van der Hoop, Pauli, Myers, and Briggs.

    INTPs are much more likely to look before they leap than ENTPs. ENTPs have inferior Si, which means that Ne’s exploration of possibilities and desire for novelty distracts the ENTP from accessing their personal historical database. This can cause ENTPs to be reckless and quick to abandon stability in favor of the unknown. INTPs on the other hand desire to understand everything and are more grounded in what’s known. This means INTPs are more likely than ENTPs to consider the logical consequences of impulsive activity.

    Published by:

    bohemian intp

    12 Variations of the INTP Personality Type

    Published by:

    Image by Gingershots:

    In astrology, it is known that there are distinct differences among persons of the same zodiac sign. With the Myers Briggs, there are also shades of variation among shared types. While it appears that there is no 1 to 1 correlation between Myers Briggs type and astrology sign, it could be that the astrology sign may produce variations of a given Myers Briggs personality type. Here are 12 theoretical variations of the INTP personality.


    An Aries INTP may be especially dynamic and ambitious but just as socially awkward as the others. Intellectual arrogance may be accentuated due to their highly active minds and intense curiosity to understand everything. They work in impulsive bursts of energy rather than a steady constant flow. They live and move with a sense of purpose,  silently amassing a wealth of knowledge as they go.  An Aries INTP will likely tend towards impatience and frustration with restrictions and impediments that threaten to thwart them and their objectives. Extra blunt and to the point, they are very quick to zero in on the gravamen of a matter and suss out an array of creative solutions and poignant insights.


    The Taurus INTP may be slightly more persistent than others and possess an added dose of patience and pragmatism. They are likely to be especially quiet and reserved and can work tirelessly to bring their goals to fruition or to attain a complete and full understanding of something in which they are interested. This type of INTP may be especially obstinate and uncompromising when their principles are violated.


    Gemini is an air sign naturally associated with intellect, communication skill and learning. A Gemini INTP is likely to be especially silver tongued and verbally agile. A bright and fast thinking mind with an avid interest in assimilating new information and mastering abstruse concepts. They may enjoy talking with anyone willing to listen or keep up with them but they prefer those who can challenge them and sharpen their ideas.


    Cancers are emotional water signs which is something that runs counter to the phlegmatic INTP archetype. An INTP cancer may have a more developed Extraverted feeling (Fe) than the norm. This INTP likely has a soft underbelly for which they’ve developed defense mechanisms to protect. They may withdraw from the outside world into their “shell” when emotionally damaged and hurt. If they get burned enough times, they may develop an aloof and cold veneer to the point that they may deny having feelings at all. Only those who manage to penetrate their walls discover the loving and compassionate heart inside the robot.


    Leos are proud and pompous and an INTP Leo is likely to be somewhat intellectually conceited or at least to appear to be so. They may intimidate others with the confidence with which they assert their points and arguments. INTP Leos may desire recognition and due credit for the brilliance of their ideas, and may feel slighted if they don’t feel properly acknowledged. They may be somewhat competitive and when they are insecure will likely be compelled to show off and try to impress others.


    Virgos are modest and analytical which jibes naturally with the INTP personality type. VIrgo INTPs likely will be less interested in seeking recognition or taking credit for their work. They may have trouble asking for things like promotions or raises. They may be especially critical and scrutinizing in their analysis of both people and objects. This INTP may be more persnickety and argumentative and perhaps anal retentive about accuracy. Annoyingly so.


    A Libran INTP might be very uncomfortable with conflict and will utilize tact and sensitivity to smooth things over or maintain the peace. They are not equipped to deal with emotional turmoil in any real capacity for they themselves have not mastery over their own. They may have a calm and awkward charm that others find affable. These INTPs may enjoy better social lives and an ability to extravert themselves more.


    Scorpio INTPs are likely to be very private and mysterious individuals. They may carry an aura of intrigue that leaves others to only speculate. For their part however, their penetrating minds are adept at reading others and figuring them out. These INTPs probably love secrets and esoteric knowledge. They truly enjoy the process of using their intuition, piecing together clues, connecting the dots in the service of uncovering the truth.


    Sagittarius is jovial and philosophical. It is also the associated with Jupiter which is the planet of higher learning. A sagittarius INTP is likely unafraid to express their opinion in an unfiltered and blunt manner. They may be especially restless, always seeking to broaden their horizons and improve themselves. Learning is a mutual interest of both INTPs and Sagittarians so this is a indistinguishable quality between them. However a Sagittarius INTP may be more willing to break free from their comfort zone to embark on more adventurous exploits.


    Both Capricorns and INTPs are reserved and shrewd. However the Capricorn INTP will likely be more responsible and dutiful with an eye on achievement. Capricorn INTPs are willing to work hard towards a goal and may resemble more of an INTJ in many regards. They may feel comfortable in a tutelary role where they can share their knowledge through teaching.  They may also be especially sarcastic with a dry a sense of humor.


    The Aquarian INTP will likely appear more eccentric and quirky like an ENTP. This INTP will probably have heightened rebellious streak and have a low tolerance for those who try to shove authority down their throat. These are unconventional, inventive free spirits who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd or appear weird. Their independence is sacred.


    Albert Einstein was a Pisces reputed to be an INTP and if he is any indication, Pisces INTPs can be pretty ingenious. These INTPs may often appear lost in their thoughts which happens to be typical Pisces behavior. Their intuitions may border on clairvoyant. Their moods may be subject to frequent changes although they try to maintain a placid exterior. They frequently retreat to their inner world where they are most comfortable. They may be prone to excessive daydreaming and escapism and also drug and alchohol use.
