    Another person could easily feel that E S and T are much more interesting than I N and F. And none of this has jack shit to do with the functions, so I'm not sure why it would be taken srsly.
    Of course it is just my personal opinion, and of course others think differently. Did anyone expect an objective answer here? Good. Because 'boring' is not an attribute of a thing but a judgment attributed to a thing.

    Pfft. Most INTPs on this forum are mistyped. I'd wager a good 75-85% of them.

    Agreed, and I'd guess that most of the mistyped ones are simply jaded/cynical INFPs.

    I know that you know it's your opinion.

    It's just that the other guy was trying to make it sound like a theory or something lol.

    I don't know if I agree with you verbatim, but I do think some INTPs are mistyped. I don't think it's quite that many though. When someone is an INTP, you expect them to be intelligent, analytical, and rational. Ignoring for the moment that these words have different expectations for different people and that we attach certain meaning to them, we have parameters for "is probably an INTP."

    When one appears silly or ignorant, it's tempting to say he's mistyped. I don't think that's the case at all. Rather, it's possible that there are many stupid as fuck INTPs. In fact, too many to count. INTPc is loaded! Types really don't have anything to do with intelligence. Perhaps they can help predict certain types of intelligence, but even that is pushing it. I would expect an NT to be more knowledgeable about quantum mechanics than an SP in most cases.

    The sooner we vanquish this notion that type is a useful indicator of knowledge, personality, ability for logical reasoning, open-mindedness etc., the better. IOW, it's more likely an INTP is stupid than it is an INTP is mistyped.

    Amen, @NegativeZero! (Although I would say "closed-minded" or "judgmental" instead of "stupid".)

    Speaking as someone with an INTP dad, I know what it looks like when an INTP is irrational -- and it is an interesting experience, because not only are they irrational, but they are belligerently irrational, and completely unaware that they are! And that does not make them mistyped. INTPs are not robots, as much as they might sometimes feel like they are, or accidentally convince others that they are.

    You seem confused. Either that or you disagree with me. What's up?

    I strongly agree with the bolded. I also agree that there are NTs lacking certain types of intelligence that can make seem them seem stupid, and that they can be ignorant.

    However, it seems to me that extreme lack of emotional control would indicate a mistyping rather than low intelligence. INTPs are Fe inferiors, and I don't usually even see them have the 'splosions that INTJs can have with their tert Fi. INTPs usually show Fe by becoming very nagging or strangely ethical about certain issues ...and yeah.
