    INTPs are really laid back, and are content with thinking of ideas, being excited at how cool they are, and then moving on to other ideas - they feel no need to translate their idea from their head to the real world, and finish off projects.
    Reason why most of us (judging from the forums) are (epic)failures in our ""careers"" :p
    And people are stupid indeed, most wouldn't really need a brain, for what little use they make of it. How can a man of reason not be cynic in front of such a pathetic spectacle as humanity?

    Yep - this pretty much sums up the attitudes of all the INTPs I know...

    Or a woman of reason. . You're right, though.

    I find INTJs and INTPs pretty similar in the way they appear, with a few notable differences:

    1. INTJ types are far more methodical and systematic. INTP people will jump around randomly from topic to topic and from one project to another without any need for linear progression.

    2. INTJs are more results focused. Both types like to talk about ideas but with an INTJ you can be fairly well assured that their ideas will be implemented somehow. For an INTP, just having a cool idea is often enough and they feel no need to see it actually put into action.

    3. INTP types are probably the least concerned of all types with fitting in with the rest of society. They make their own rules, and then they break them. INTJs are somewhat more concerned with being "normal" and tend to appear to be a bit more conventional than INTPs.

    *shrug* I dunno, but that test was the first personality test I ever took, and I was Melancholic first, then Choleric, then Phlegmatic, then Sanguine.

    Actually, that phrase kind of makes me cringe a little on the inside. I think INTP's are harder on society at large than INTJs because the INTP may feel more bound by society than the INTJ. Where society doesnt fit in with my image of how things should be, I just change the reality of it.

    I think the INTP feels more 'helpless' to change anything. Every single one I've known has had harsh comments about people in general, where they seem to be looking down from a lofty position of knowledge but they don't feel like there is anyone who will catch their drift. When this happens, they dont even both to explain, and just become more and more cynical.

    The INTJ's I've known (including myself) get so excited by the possibilities of how we can change things (if not in everyone else, than in ourselves) to make things 'work' that we forget sometimes what our original goal was. For me, its like ADHD logic, and I can get so far down the branches of my thinking that I'll forget what the original thought was.

    There's no room for hating on society in that... just more things to analyze...

    I do suffer this. But then I will have equal moments of profound humility.

    I'm never on the level. Poor emotional stability ensues.

    It seems to me that INTJs tend to presume to know more and be more confident making ASSumptions based on their presumptions where INTPs are comfortable keeping an eye out for other possibilities.
