    depends on the person and different types might be social in bit different ways, for example ISTP might be more about doing team sports with pretty much anybody etc and INTP might be more joke around and have fun or talk deep intellectual stuff with close friends. so INTP might be more intense(more and deeper socializing packed in small package), while ISTP might be more superficial and but more quantity of social stuff, kinda hard to explain, you know, you can put many layers of paint in small area or spread it in wider area, still the amount of paint is equal. but this is just an example and im not saying that ISTPs dont have deep meaningful discussion with close friends, just saying that they might on average prefer different types of socializing.

    i think ITPs tend to be on average bit more social than ITJs

    Does it not come down to the instinctual variant? And how does one define social and is everyone here adhering to the same definition? So/Sx types or whatever MBTI type would be the most likely to be social.

    It always refers to the interaction of organisms with other organisms and to their collective co-existence
    By going by the above mentioned definition ISTPs will top the interaction with other organisms whereas IxTJ < ISTJ will top the interactions with other organisms to their collective co-existence.

    I'm shocked to see that INTPs have gotten more votes than INTJs. Infact INTJs haven't got any votes at all. INTPs are known as the mental-masturbators not the social butterflies. I can see @INTP above me so I'm probably getting myself in to a bare knuckle fist fight within a few minutes.

    I would tend to see ISTPs as either strong Self-Pres (typically) or maybe SP/SO.
    ITJ to me tends to go in either direction.
    There's a humanitarian streak with some INTPs -- we might be detached on some kind of personal level, but there can more easily be a big connection to some overall collective (e.g., humanity).

    srsly, though, it just depends on the situation and what one considers "warm."

    I'm shocked to see that INTPs have gotten more votes than INTJs.
    Why? The fact is that we are wonderful.

    *cough*

    Infact INTJs haven't got any votes at all.
    Have you hung out at INTJForum at all? Go there, then come back in 5 minutes and let me know. (Meanwhile, hang out at INTPf or INTPc for a short time, and see the difference.)

    Both are anti-people, but in their own ways.

    INTPs are known as the mental-masturbators not the social butterflies.
    If you (1) get us on the right topic or (2) do social things that seem kind of experimental/curiously fun, then you can usually count on us to engage, and when we do engage in pursuit of an idea, we can get really extroverted.

    The "P" flex thing too should not be understated. I think it's primary difference that ITP might come off warmer than ITJ. While ITJ can be warm, it's a different sort of warmth. But it just matters on what one considers socially invited; there's still a detach with INTP that can project aloofness.

    edit - I just noticed that this was posted in the NT Rationale section. That seems to be a bit biased against the ISTXs!
    You honestly think enfp is the most social exfx type!!??
    Have you met esfj!?

    I'm going to go with the cop out answer of it depends because I think that's the most accurate... But I voted istj just based on personal experience.

    INTPs definitely do this! You might have said it as a joke, but it's so true of my INTP friend and myself. My roommate does plenty of it too, but she's either an ENFJ or ENFP, so take that as you will.

    I tend to want to be social around one person or a few people, but that could be sx/so.

    Oh dang INTJ is by far the most social IxTx type!

    Here's why:
    They are obsessed with world domination which involves interacting with hordes of people.
    They are the closest IxTx type to ENFJs and sheesh ENFJs can't shut up and they are uber obsessed with managing the masses and imposing their stupid high minded social ideals.
    INTJs are high achievers which involves improving your position in relation to the social heirarchy.

    Based on the above info, I think I made a convincing case for INTJs being the most social IxTx type.

    Feel free to provide counter-arguments as you wish. I love a good fight!
