INTP's are usually intellectual and smart, but they NEVER get anything done.

1. INTP's are intellectual.
2. Being intellectual requires one to actually do something .
3. INTP's NEVER get anything done.
Logically speaking, this is a fail. If we never do anything, but being intellectual requires *doing something*, then how can we be intellectual? It just didn't make sense, but it's not a big deal because I have to agree with the general idea you were pointing out - that we often times aren't results driven. That can be the downfall of the INTP if we don't make sure that *ideas* actually manifest into *real results*.
To the OP, everything that you SUCK at (you know what those things are as well as I do), there is somebody else who is EXTREMELY GOOD at it (i.e. they are superior to you in those areas and it wouldn't hurt you to humble yourself and learn from them - hopefully, that's an INTP trait as well), whether it be emotional IQ, matters of the heart (love), dealing with people, being humble, physically fit, well-rounded, etc. You're only considering the things you are good at, while conveniently forgetting the things you probably aren't good at.
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.
