    Frankly I really don't understand this Fe, Si, Ti, but you guys seem to be forgetting one thing.

    People are not defined just by MBTI. If you found 2 INTPs - one with an IQ of 140 (which is pretty high), the other with an IQ of 170 (Einstein) - you would notice huge differences between them.

    Moreover it is entirely possible for IQ 170 INTP to have fabulous memory, to the last detail and him/her being able to recall them (details) years later. It is entirely possible for such a person not to be absentminded, to be quick thinking and very sharp.

    I do not mention such variables as upbringing, environment etc. because how do you scientifically measure that? But they still do play enormous roles.

    Have any of you seen BBC's "Sherlock"?

    ^ You are forgetting that IQ does not measure long-term memory effectively, or much of anything else that is obvious to the public, for that matter.

    But yes, there is a huge range of INTPs out there.

    I haven't seen "Sherlock" and do not know much of the character, but he does seem tricky to type.

    That was kinda my point: Neither does the MBTI.

    Watch it! The most brilliant tv show that has come out of Britain in decades

    Anyway I am rooting for Sherlock to actually turn out to be an INTP. Jefferson or Darwin are hardly what I would call cool.
