I have a hunch. INTPs do act like a chameleon a lot, or at least they think they do, because there aren't too many of us in the first place, and chances are, even our closest friend, isn't even an INTP (highly likely an NF chick we do consider flirting with).
Were there enough times you actually felt you sincerely acted INTP socially?
Actually, I act legitimately INTP when I'm with my usually older ENFP friends. It's fun being a devil's advocate of their idealism.
I realized though that Ti is never a girl magnet and if I want to have chances with girls (for example), I usually toggle my ENTP sarcasm with occasional whiff of ENFP romanticism. It certainly puts me at a better social disposition. Toggling is easy because lately, I'm more like xNxP. At this rate, I dont think I'd still be INTP for the next couple of years.
Still, having a very strong N means I'll botch up a group interaction composed of ESFx's. It just happened a few days ago.
I was interacting with more than 10 of them.
At least having a good understanding of MBTI helps me find a comfy social niche. Selective and slightly prejudicial it may seem, at least it lessens isolation.
Seriously, I dont think i can live life well having a strong Ti, with no other legitimately strong cognitive auxilary. If I would hate J, then I need to be an extroverted P to be an effective countermeasure.
Anybody shares a similar outlook?
