The chameleon INTP is basically a state in which the P function of an INTP "listens" to the merits of another person's statements, in order to seek information from it, basically characterized by the inhibition of the Ti's assertion.
To INTPs, this can be interpreted as their empathic function.
A few days ago, I was reading here an INTP description posted by an INTP member, and he says something like...
"An INTP can simulate any personality of various archetypes, none of which is legitimately his."
I was wondering if this somehow has parallels with the chameleon description.
To be honest, I think if you jack up an INTPs Ti, he'll end up like Bluewing (no sarcasm intended).
The last time I took an MBTI test, I still showed up an INTP though the dichotomy of my I/E and T/F are really close. All are close to 50% and only the N and P are at a glaring advantage.
Assuming that the results have validity, I'm probably close to any of these four: ENTP, INTP, INFP, and ENFP at any point.
Well, that's because out of the four archetypes, I'm less likely to find an INTP, in real life. The xNFPs (or Js) are much easier to find.
Does any INTP here feel the lack to environmental conduciveness to refine the Ti function? I know that even in solitude, it can be refined, but how does external pressure fare up?
