I think it is Ti versus Te. Ti has an internal framework from which they draw conclusions. Information comes in through Ne, and Ti processes it and outputs a conclusion. In INTJ (I may not entirely understand the individual functions, but it looks to me like) Ni and Te work together to take in information and produce an internal system, aided by Fi. Ni for perceiving the environment, and Te for deciding objective truth and gathering facts. So in INTJ both Ni and Te take in information (just different kinds), and so they are more reliant on outside information than INTP.
I would say it depends on the enneatype, not the type. For instance, I find the 5w6 types to be extremely robotic followed by many of the 6w5's. For instance, there are quite a few INTJ 8's out there and 1's and they don't seem robotic at all. In addition, many INTP 6w7 types don't seem robotic either.
I think INTJs have the more outward appearance of being robotic, they maybe more aloof, efficient, and standoffish while INTPs present a more open and go with the flow demeanor. That said Ti is more about logical deductions and fine tuning meanings/definitions while Ni can sometimes "skip" that whole process and unconsciously arrive at a conclusion, it seems to be limited only by the user's imagination(which has it's pros and cons).
Makes some sense.

Makes even more.

yea that would be a good thread idea: who is more responsible, intp or intj.
