    INTPs will end up with extremely abstract theories that the usual ISTP will think is a little insane. ISTPs are more driven to test and play around with these ideas and if they don't quite align with reality they will be quicker to reject them. INTPs will entertain ridiculous ideas like ENTPs do but they will be quicker to narrow them down and see if they have any truth. It doesn't matter if these theories don't appear to be in the real world, so long as they can be mentally understood they will have some acceptance by the INTP. They will be content until information begins contradicting their models where they start all over again.

    ISTP 5s will appear even more like INTPs, but I think their thoughts tend to be way more concrete than INTPs.

    I have noticed on pretty much every philosopher typing thread like half of the philosophers are typed INTP and none of them are typed ISTP, meaning either lots of philosophical ISTPs get mistyped as INTP or ISTPs just are not a philosophical type, making if a Ti user is interested in philosophy the sure way to tell.

    Ya for a while I thought I was ISTP but the truth is I have never been laid in my entire existence rendering ISTP invalid.

    You DEFINITELY ain't ISTP, then.
    It's okay. You'll have your day, young man.

    On the surface they should look similar. This is primarily true because the switch comes within the aux/tert functions. Although, their entire process of judgement behaves very differently.

    When it comes to philosophy, I don't mind discussing it. Heck it was even a subject in school where I got an A.

    I remember one of my INTP classmates and how we discussed greek philosophers.
    While I tend to just stick with the facts written in the books, my classmate tended to spin into more deep analyze of the theory, making it just more and more abstract. He even confused the teacher to the point where I had to tell him. Just take it for what it is man. Don't dig too deep into it.

    Yeah, this is definitely my interaction with my INTP best friend.

    Another major difference: We both have a tendency to lose ourselves in topics that interest us. For a while though, I thought he had more energy to spend on those topics that interested him, whereas I would slow down when I stopped seeing practical benefits or application. Then I realized that it wasn't that he had more energy to spend on those topics, it was that what he considered his range of application was just a lot more ... well, vast. His Ne tells him that he can apply that interest to here, and here, and here, and here...

    And we also talked about ISTP/INTP differences once. We pretty much came to this conclusion:

    But seriously, he mentioned once that when a girl gave him a "signal" to kiss them he just kind of shut down and had no idea what to do. I definitely have not experienced this situation with the opposite sex
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.
