    Pointlessly and cluelessly theoretical. In a group INTP's will not see their weaknesses, one of which being that they tend not gather enough information before drawing conclusions. Then they will take this incomplete information and make the most elaborate and analytical sounding conclusions, not realizing that it is based on incomplete data/observation. Now an INTP who stays in contact with an ENTP or INTJ can get a reality check on their ideas and then start over with a better foundation for their logical analyzing.

    But in a group of INTP's they just hear the logical jargon that they others are spewing, and since it sounds logical they all readily accept it. Then the most unusual sort of group-think sets in. INTP's are meant to be independent thinkers, but in groups they have this way of arguing while being in agreement at the same time. Eventually their thinking becomes more and more similar and for INTP's that means more theoretical and more divorced from reality, interested in abstract trivialities that no other type could be interested in. There also seems to develop a greater lack of social regard for other people (even by INTP standards).

    As I've said though I think any type becomes intolerable when concentrated together. This is simply what I've seen INTP's act like in groups.

    I agree with the comment about "any type." I was picturing a bunch of ISFJs sitting in a social circle, talking about what their children had for lunch and who said what at work and what color curtains they'd like for their kitchen. Inbreeding of any type can end up being ugly.

    That was a nice assessment of the potential problems of INTP groups as well.

    true, true... not just in a group. if an intp is under stress, that is likely how he/she would react too. i think.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    I like that they insist on thinking they're the better type, too snobbish to self improve, while the extraverts of the same latter persuasion pass them up.

    It's LOLable.

    Eh? I would expect the opposite: more and more pointless information gathering, unable to draw a conclusion. The weakness of the NTP type blown up large.

    True.

    P.S. We're still awesome.
