With the Jung test, I am described as an INTP
- Introverts tend to be reflective, reserved and private. A popular misconception is that Introverts are shy – this is not necessarily so. They draw their energy from their own thoughts and the time they spend alone. Introverts do not need people around them all the time.
- iNtuitives pay more attention to information that is imaginative and original. iNtuitives focus on the future.
- Thinkers make decisions using logic and impersonal analysis. They think with their heads rather than their hearts.
- Perceivers prefer a lifestyle that is spontaneous, flexible and adaptable. They like an environment that is unstructured, and like to keep their options open.
Your Jung personality type is stereotyped as The Designer
An INTP at-a-glance
You are perhaps the most intellectually thoughtful of all the Personality Types. People who know INTPs well describe them as innovative and ingenious. You live in a rich internal world in your mind, which is full of imagination and excitement. As a consequence, you may sometimes find the external world less interesting. This may lead some people to see you as being rather understated and reserved.
Your distinguishing characteristics are imagination, originality, perceptiveness, creativity and a delight in tackling the complex. You are interested in theorizing, analyzing and learning. You thrive on exploring, understanding and explaining how the world works.
Your logical, rational mind means that you are frequently one step ahead of others and are usually considered to be intellectually superior. You are strongly motivated to challenge yourself to pursue and acquire excellence. You tend to be somewhat skeptical and are orientated towards the future rather than the past.
