Ok. This is something of a two tier question. For INTP's, how do you think people usually perceive you when they first meet you, or very early in a relationship? What goes on in your head, with your analysis of how other perceive you? Secondly, how do you other types perceive INTP's upon first meeting them and first getting to know them? Or if the INTP's know, go ahead and state what the people you've encountered ACTUALLY thought about you (would most likely require that they've actually told you).
For me, I think people usually perceive me (mainly talking about offline too) as distant, sometimes too quiet. I believe they also think I'm too serious at times, or if I'm in a talkative humerus mood, they think I'm more serious with my humor than I really am. Then there are those people who are initially attracted to my personality, who generally get to see more sides of me than the former batch of people, and initially pick up the understanding of what I'm really about much more easily. I think this has MUCH to do with different opposing personality types and complimentary personality types, yet there are a great number of other factors that play into initial impressions as well.
