    I already made this point a couple pages back. Unfortunately the answer is not exactly the point of the thread.

    So, hands up who reckons MBTI can be used prescriptively.

    Much as I hate to say it, a question like the one starting this thread, with an actual application waiting in the wings, comes down to the person and their product, not the type and their type.


    Don't ya think so?

    Also, if you don't understand how Ne plays a huge role in critiquing and analyzing, that proves my point exactly. Ti is precise, without a doubt, but INTPs are too single minded to notice if there is a deeper meaning than what is just presented and obvious.
    It's true that Ne can be very useful to an analysis. But Ti essentially is analysis. Making TiNe ideal.

    I think a poll on the subject would give an 'objective' answer.

    Or maybe it'll just show how many INTP's there are compared to INTJ's as most of the people in this thread seem to simply defend their own type. Good example of group thinking though.

    Well, I agree that an Ne and Ti combo is ideal, and I think the quality of analysis coming from an xNTP depends on experience, so I can't say if E or I is truly more objective. I just know I would choose either one over an Ni Te combo any day, especially if Fi is involved.

    Yup. "Best" critic is determined by the parameters of what needs to be accomplished. If you want an overall nuanced assessment of the nature of the item in question (or even broad strategy), go for INTP... the goal is to convey an accurate understanding/description of the item in question and how all the parts weigh against and interact with each other; if you want a practical assessment geared towards achieving a particular outcome or know how to realistically apply knowledge towards a goal, I would choose INTJ.)

    It's basically the difference between being "open-ended" (comprehensive knowledge for sake of accurate understanding) vs "closure-oriented" (ingenuous application of knowledge to accomplish a particular goal).

    A poll of whom? Encyclopedia article writers? They may perhaps be a tad pissed off if one didn't instead look over their portfolios.

    Well, I have officially hired an INTJ.
    I can't find an INTP.

    At least, not where I can afford to pay.

    I was thinking of a poll in this thread whether other forum members thought INTJ's or INTP's were more suitable. In the interest of fairness there would obviously also be options for the other types as they tended to defend their own type rather then choose one of the two in the thread title.

    But all this has just been blown into the hypothetical world.
