    Default INTP doesn't like other INTPs

    I have come to the conclusion that I don't particularly like interacting with other INTPs. Not sure if it is due to the intrinsically awkward communication style of 2 introverts ** sound of crickets chirping in background ** or because INTPs are so quirky and idiosyncratic that we can't even tolerate one another.

    OTOH, I love ENTPs...

    I'm either an INTP or an INTJ and I dislike interacting with most INTPs as well. A great deal of them are very pretentious and lack self-awareness. Their sense of humor is also pretty banal; pi jokes and the like.

    I think INTPs are fine to talk to. I usually play the extrovert role with the ones I'm comfortable with, which helps. I can push their buttons and they won't cry or get mad.
    I don't have much contact with Ne dominants, but I found Ne dominant can be very overshadowing.

    ENTPs aren't quirky and idiosyncratic??

    Maybe other INTPs remind you too much of yourself. (Not trying to be a smart ass, really)

    Impossible! No, but it can be strange sometimes. Sometimes it's tons of fun. Other times it's like, "What do you want?" "No, what do you want?"
    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.

    I like other INTPs on this forum, but it's too awkward most of the time IRL. They remind me of my worst social fears about myself, though I'm pretty socially aware for an INTP.

    True. Sometimes it's like looking at a mirror of yourself, which says a lot about you from an external view. But why is this a surprise that warrants a thread? I mean, it's obvious every type will dislike at least one person that's the same as them. The most common would probably be the ISTPs/ESTPs. The least common would be the NFs since they would try to avoid arguing at all times, let alone with each other.

    Generally, I tend to dislike/distrust most people.

    It depends on how well-rounded the other INTPs are.

    The ones who have decent intuition and/or are well-rounded and can actually hold a normal conversation (rather than just spouting off facts and philosophy) are pretty awesome. But I seem to react negatively against the ones who are one-trick ponies.
