    Default Used to think I was an INTP

    So, a while back, I learned about MBTI, and I tested myself and discovered that I was an INTP. I read the profile, and most things fit me, so I went with that. After learning more facts and retesting a few times, I eventually homed in on ISTP. Which fits much more nicely. I was rather disappointed with being the much more common ISTP at first, because my artistic nature makes me want to be different than everybody else, more like the uncommon INTP. But now I'm content with who I am, and am ready to PARTY!!!! i.e. sit quietly in the corner and observe everyone else partying. Seriously, Introvert, duh.

    Haha, I know what you mean! I thought of myself as totally unique, and was unhappy that my type is not one of the most uncommon ones! Haha. When I originally read the SP description, I dismissed it completely and said that is totally not me. But that was mainly because I saw the descriptions as being about the people I knew who were not interested in anything but getting drunk all the time, and I very much rejected that mindset. I think the traits that a lot of people think of as SP traits are all the extroverted types, and they forget about all of us introverted SP folks, who may come from the same impulse-motivated place, but actually have that built-in "check" on our impulses that the "Se-dominant" folks don't get held back by.

    Anyway, welcome to the forum, have fun!

    Wow, how many of us are there? I swear the INTP --> ISTP progression is starting to become a law. Welcome.

    Hi,

    I used to think I was an INTP too. Then I realized I spent most my time fantasizing about being a reclusive, eccentric genius rather than actually theorizing about logical stuff. But now I'm just content with being an eccentric recluse who's fantasy prone. I do think I've managed to develop my T function while figuring this out though.
