Behaving in an odd manner for the sake of doing so is an act to differentiate oneself from the crowd. Such people (myself included) often feel that social norms are exceedingly irrational and restrictive. You should really look into the book Eccentrics: A Study of Sanity and Stangeness, by David Weeks and Jamie James. Here is a link to the amazon.com description: Amazon.com: Eccentrics: A Study of Sanity and Strangeness (Kodansha Globe): Books: David Weeks,Jamie James
    That is something INTP's tend towards. Occasionally I seem weird, but it's unintentional. I actually try not to seem weird and don't always succeed.

    But I do think a person can be sane and not be sociable/normal. In fact, there are probably some negative things about what is considered normal that such people have seen and refused to contribute to.

    Also, just for the record:

    IP = Melancholy
    EJ = Choleric
    IJ = Phlegmatic
    EP = Sanguine
    Indeed?
