    That said, they can also be some of the most intellectual people around, surpassing even INTPs, who, it must be said, have the greatest inclination toward intellectual pursuits.

    This is because: the intellect, like the physical body, is something that must be fostered and attended to. The analogues between physical and mental training are striking.

    For whatever reason, an uncommon degree of drive attends the introverted intuitive's mindset. This drive will often lead INTJs to make the long-term effort required to develop their minds and rational abilities.

    As I've stated, the INTP mindset is, if descriptions are correct, unquestionably the most inclined toward this development. But just as the SP mindset, which places kinaesthetic intelligence at the forefront of the psychological processes, inclines members of that group toward prowess in physical pursuits, this inclination must be acted upon and fostered for it to bear fruit.
    Its the simple saying...practice makes perfect. I bet I can be more intellectual then INTPs ENTPs are harder for me as the breadth of intellectual can trump me. I can still keep up with them though simply because I can grasp concepts really fast. So while INTP are the most inclined, it doesnt mean they will actually be good or bad at it....of course I have been trained by an INTJ from birth

    I have a better thread idea:

    "Why ESFPs can be more intellectual than INTJs"

    Then again, if that would even be controversial, that is rather sad...
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.

    • MBTI? ISTJ
    • Enneagram? 6 with a strong 7 wing
    • Brony? Yes
    • Stereotypes?

    Tell you what...give an ESFP to an INTP and I promise you the "intellectual" would go out the window


    edit: just playing...knowing a real ESFP, they would actually love the intellectual

    Go back to your thread on how dating "inherently" sucks.

    Until you came in here, this was actually a reasonably intelligent thread.
    That thread's played out, I'm looking for my new thrill.

    This thread makes no sense.

    So Intellectual - no sense = lots of thought + intelligence. So, if u take intellectuals & subtract them not making sense, u get intelligence. lol, I think it's true

    I have a contribution, about deduction. Mathematics all reduces to tautology: things equaling themselves. So nothing new is brought into existence (such as truth) & the revelations are of perspective. Math can show you reality in a new way, but nothing new is ever found. I think (woops I mean 'feel' I don't have the thinking gene) mathematics is about building new structures of perspective.
