INTP (Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving) is one of the sixteen personality types from personality type systems based on C.G. Jung, which best known are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Keirsey Temperament Sorter and Socionics.

Referring to Keirsey INTPs belong to the temperament of the rationals and are called "Architects".

In Socionics INTps belong to the club of the researcher, the gamma Quadra and are named "Critics" or Balzac. Another notation for INTp is ILI (which is an acronym for Intuitive-Logical Intratim, referring to the cognitive functions).

DescriptorEdit

INTPs excel in the world of abstract thought and are excellent at recognizing patterns in what seems to be chaos. The world of computer programming is a haven for INTPs. INTPs, always open to new and perhaps even crazy ideas, push the limitations of scientific thought and architecture.
