    Default INTPs, is this common with you?

    Are these common with INTPs? I suspect someone I know is an INTP.

    -The art of the non-sequitir that may confuse the heck out of the INFJ, but they are actually doing this to get said INFJ to think outside the box.

    -Intellectual and twisted type of humor.

    -When someone complains about what everyone else is doing, and they really don't care because it doesn't adhere to their core values, or it's not close to them.

    -Eclectic taste in music.

    -Laid back and always lost in thought.

    -Not exactly keen on routines, would rather sit back and read about things that interest them/stimulate their intellect.

    -Asking questions to get the exact definition behind what someone is saying. ex. "Who is 'them'?"

    -Asking if one has evidence for their speculations.

    -When turning to them for advice, they say that you should think things through, use reason.

    -When things get emotional between two people in a confrontation, they illustrate the pattern that is exhibited between the individuals as an attempt to have the party understand/think about what is going on and seek resolution.

    Sounds pretty INTP-ish to me, with the exception of "liking eclectic music" (not sure that's type related). Just look for some degree of detachment/aloofness (which usually indicates that we are pondering, thinking, intently listening, or otherwise in "Ti" world) with occasional bursts of Ne.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I'll believe that.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Seems textbook INTP
    -twisted type of humor.
    Except this, our humor isn't twisted . Everything is humorous. That is the purest form of humor, isn't it?

    May be symptoms of INTP. For a clearer picture try and write a typical day in the life of this INTP for a more clear analysis. Throw in some details may not at first glance appear to have anything to do with their INTPness and may simply be background colour.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.
