    On the second part, thing is, even here those INTPs who don't fit that INTPc stereotype don't come off as INTPs to others. I was just repped and told I was thought to be an INFP. So what you have is, if you're older or have developed some manners, whatever, you won't be thought of as INTP. Its amazing to me. I've, at times, wanted to be something else just because of the reputation and because we tend to get, senselessly, beat up... guess I, finally, got my wish.. false or not.
    Amen to that. A friend of mine once described mature INTP's as very hard to type. I see that as a compliment.

    What you say of these:
    INTP's are most likely to be annoyed for trying to figure out their type (in real life). They are most likely to say they can be of any type if they only want to be. INTP's are prone to test people in every way just to see their reaction for their experiment.

    However, we do become mature ... eventually

    Heh, I think it is more likely that INTP is the type most people claim regardless of what their actual type is.

    Why would one want to claim to be INTP?

    Unfortunately no. We're more ISTJ. Hence the extreme amounts of hoops you have to jump through. The reason no one fusses much about those hoops is because to the ISTJ mind it's easy, almost off hand. To those of us who yearn to be free of endless paperwork and supposed toos though it's all to obvious.

    The best way of illustrating it is by looking into the whole thing of tradition and expectations. If the majority were INTPs I'd expect most of them to disappear.

    British nonsense, cold sophisticated humor rather look ENTP. Check the Monty Pythons, for instance...

    IMHO, the way INTP's express themselves rather looks close to South Park: crude, puerile, childish, and sometimes genuinely hilarious (But I could be wrong...).
    Hmm my father once said he thought John Cleese was an INTP. Still can't see it myself.

    The INTP humour is definitely left field and wacky. Of course it would depend on what you think is wacky...

    Ooo I loved the revelation. My father tested me when I was 18 and declared "Aha!". The thing I don't like is when people think they have me figured out. I have the ENFP reaction to that "How can you say you have me figured out? I don't have me figured out!!"

    Somehow people have associated intelligence with INTPs. Something to do with the prominent INTP traits bearing high similarity to someone who is very cerebral.

    A implies B people...
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Very odd indeed. Irl, I'm seen as cerebral and rather harshly criticized for it. People get really creative coming up with ways to attack "who" I am.... and yet they want to be like me? I'm not sure this is the reason. So maybe you're saying they don't really want to be like me... just appear to be. I have found it amazing how many INTPs there appear to be on the pertinent groups when their numbers in the population is supposed to be so small.... so still mulling this over. I was interested when someone said a mature INTP is the hardest to guess the type of. Maybe if there were more of those the picture would become clearer.

    I don't know what type Cleese is, but I think the Python humor definitely appeals to the INTP personality, as does Blackadder. It's silly, yet extremely clever.

    I think MST3K is very INTP-like humor. I'd be surprised if those guys weren't mostly INTPs.

    MST3K is my kind of humor although I don't think it's limited to INTPs. The guy who introduced me to it was ENTP. I also like Conan O'Brien, and even Eric McCormack (in the W&G outtakes). They're both intelligent people with impressively quick wits.
