    Default INTP V.S. INTJ

    Ok, so I took one of the tests and got INTP, it fit, my girlfriend thought it was funny how well it fit, and I took another test. INTJ. And another one, INTP, so on and so forth.

    I know another INTJ, and I am not really anything like her, at all, and she is the epitomy of INTJ, and honestly I am not.
    The difference seems to me is the after reviewing the test seems to be just two questions, both about whether or not I plan ahead or improvise.
    I wasn't exactly sure to be honest.

    I plan for big things, like my walk across America, but only for my equipment, I dont have a set place I am going or path I will take.

    I plan, just REALLY fast, I take in the data about something, and then the next second I make up my mind. Is that planning or improv?

    Thats INTP planning from the sounds of it.
    God question is how much you revised for school tests. INTJ seem to work quite hard whereras INTP just go on talent.

    Haha, yeah. I would wait until the last minute (literally 15 minutes)then pull a project out of my butt and get a B.

    INTP then, if you were an INTJ you'd have gotten an A.

    Actually the lack of itinerary for your trip indicates more flexibility and less of a preference to have things decided so based only on that, you are INTP. Of course basing your type on one question or situation is fraught with peril. Do a cognitive process test.

    With the constant flip-flop, I'd say your J/P preference is about balanced and you waffle between the two depending on the situation. I do this. Sometimes I'm very 'P' in that nothing gets done and I'll just sit and think and think and think for no apparent purpose other than I want to think. Other times I'll be all over something like white on rice on a paper plate in a snow storm! The J comes out when I need to accomplish something or am under a deadline, and tends to be the (slighly) more frequent habit.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    Note: You shouldn't just look at one example of any MBTI scale...thingy? (wtf is wrong with me) and base stereotypes on it.

    I have an INTP friend who is sort of similar to I am, but he's a really unhealthy INTP, so there are quite a lot of differences between us.

    Yeah What Blank said - Don't decide this by looking at "J-ness vs. P-ness", that's not the way to do it. It's about which COHESIVE profile fits you better - your girl says INTP fits better, right? start looking at all the intp profiles you can find, then INTJs. the answser should materialize for you

    INTJs devise a system that they can use to get something done. INTPs just figure shit out. This is grossly oversimplified, but I find it to be true for the majority of the behaviors of the majority of these types that I have observed/read about.
