that is why i said the intp could work on being more socially aware, while the intj could work on letting go, and not being in control all the time.
if anything else, type should let one realise one's strengths, and more importantly, weaknesses.
if the bolded is not a sweeping generalisation and a prime example of Te, i don't know what else would be.
it doesn't mean that all intps are socially inept though. like i said, it is a matter of maturity. Any person of any type who's well adjusted would know the necessity of balancing your personal self, with the external world.
it's a maladjusted version of any type, who'd just insist on his/her own way.
What a group prefers is too difficult to discuss on hypothesis, i think. --one has to take into account what the group members comprises of. If it is people who seek to be led, then an INTJ would do well.
as an aside: interdynamics are always what's more interesting, than type itself per se.
for an intp, it's a need to understand, and then, to leave the world the way you found it. "take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints." this could very well be an intp's philosophy with regards to the external world.
but seriously, back to the topic: an intp is like a child in relationships. he/she is likely to love purely, and deeply, and enthusiastically. just that the affection will not always be shown in conventional ways. like the intj, the intp feels very intensely; only that the intp will show his/her emotions, while the intj does not. for most intps, if they like you, they like you; if they don't, they don't. there's rarely any pretence in their emotions.
yea. fun. *shakes hands!*
