INTP: The Enquirer!

INTPs are complex intellectuals who love nothing more than digging into a concept and seeking truths. They have an internal framework of knowledge and will carefully vet new information for validity because accepting false information feels wrong to INTPs on many levels.

INTPs manage to combine this rigorous analytical temperament with creativity, so it’s no wonder that numerous scientific breakthroughs are attributed to INTPs. They are adept at recognizing patterns across pools of data and prefer spending time coming up with well-thought-out, unbiased solutions rather than jumping to conclusions without knowing the facts.

When it comes to relationships, INTPs work best with partners that they can intellectually engage with. Relationship and dating dynamics don’t usually come naturally to INTPs and they’re not particularly adept at picking up on others people’s needs. The realm of irrational emotions can be both overwhelming and confusing for this type.
