    Default INTP - The Critic?

    I've seen many web articles describing the INTP as the 'Architect'. Sometimes, the 'Thinker'.

    I find 'Architect' to be inaccurate. If that meant a literal Architect, then that doesn't make a good fit. Too much sensory skills needed, and the thinking function that's required is more Te than Ti.

    Do you think Critic is more accurate?

    Nah. I haven't in a while, but I used to draw schematics for fun, designing structures and objects.

    The socionics INTp is referred to as "The Critic." But socionics INTp is correlated with INTJ.

    Architect implies building.. which seems more Ti.

    Critiquing/Cricticising is more Te.. working with what already exists.

    Well I'm INTP and INTp (Though as far as their descriptions go, half INTp half INTj), and last I checked they called INTp "Observers."

    Ti is the internal analysis of ideas or data.

    Te is the active structuring and controlling of the external world.

    Oh damn, you are right. Yes, the INTj is either called "The Critic" or "The Analyst" and the INTp is "The Observer."

    Ti is the nitpicking function. Yes, definitely.

    I think architect was meant in the sense of systems rather than real things, and it isn't that good a description, because they don't so much "build" systems as uncover systems through critical analysis, if I understand Ti correctly (which I may not).

    INTP - The Layabout/Genius.

    Seriously speaking, INTPs are exceptional with any kind of architecture (technical, systems, data, etcetera).
