    Default iNtP...?

    I have tried to figure out one persons MBTI type for some time now. He doesn't like me to analyze him type but I try it anyway. (I know him very well so he really doesn't hate me for trying to do that.)

    This person has agreed that he is extremely strong N and very strong P. So I was thinking up a theory of him. Let's say he is iNtP. In function test Ne is his best used function. So, could it be that his iNtP causes that even if he is introvert, his Ne is so strong that it overpowers Ti. So he is very much like ENTP's except he is quite reflective.

    How does this sound? Have you experience with iNtP's? How do they seem?
    Any thoughts?

    Yes, it's possible for an introvert to focus on their secondary if they are discouraged from using or at least revealing their primary in childhood or on the job, etc. So they can mimic the extroverted version of their type.

    The main difference is as you point out, the "reflective" side is much more apparent. Another indicator is that while ENTP feeds off interaction and often roams around looking for interaction whenever possible, INTP with strong Ne will still be drained by socializing even if they seem to enjoy it -- they will often suddenly withdraw, as if a switch was thrown. And they don't go around as often seeking to "cause socializing." Most ENTPs are like puppies that way, looking to stimulate interaction.

    That sounds like an INTP.

    Yes, I think that's very typical for them

    One of our lovely paradoxes: we analyse all the time and yet don't want to be analysed ourselves. At least, that's what we may pretend

    my INFP friend hates it completly when he is catagorized in any way by me. I should just accept he is uniquely special.

    We're all uniquely special... just like everyone else.

    That's possible. I know some INTP's who seem to focus more on Ne than on Ti, yet Ti still seems to affect Ne somehow before it appears. It's hard to explain.

    Most of them seem to be more strongly Ti, but I've also seen the kind you're talking about.

    I don't understand their aversion to being analyzed. I usually like it, and only dislike it if the person comes up with something negative about me and shares it with others. If they tell just me, I usually don't even mind negative ones as much.
