    The desire to be in control of one's life is exclusive to neither types.

    Well, this will be useful if you're unsure of the preferences.

    Has she ever done a test? If not, the website I linked to has one you could take if you're interested.

    She read it and says she is not a perceiver but only agrees with the responsible and likes closure part of the judgement section.

    She has tested INTP, INTJ, ISTJ, and I think one time ISTP and INFP.

    The closure thing is the major factor in whether or not someone is J, control has nothing to do with wanting to control other people. Sheesh. It's about decisiveness and naturally tending to plan things out, as opposed to preferring that things are open ended and not planned out ahead of time.

    Also, her fitting the stereotypical image of INTP doesn't really say anything. I cannot recommend highly enough that you dig a little deeper.

    Have either of you read the typelogic.com descriptions? I think they're a good place to start. You could read through them and compare the profiles of both INTJ and INTP.

    I'm going assume because she/you were unaware of the differences between the J/P preferences, you haven't explored cognitive functions. Correct me if I'm wrong. Tests don't tell you everything, but if you're having doubt, you could take this at your leisure.

    The only thing I'm clear of from your OP is she's an introvert. Maybe clearer descriptions would help me if you're uninterested in taking online tests.

    Could be either but I'm getting more of an INTP vibe.

    I made her take the test and she got...



    OFFTOPIC:
    Well according to that test, I'm a ESTP > ISTP > ENTP. Which is odd, considering the last functions test I took was ENTP > ESTP > INTP

    The high Si does support INTP.

    Cognitive tests can be a little iffy, especially where questions that should identify introverted intuition (the INTJ's dominant process) use phrases that sound totally ridiculous and excessively mystical...but anyway, I complain about these tests all the time. The Si suggests that she is either INTP or possibly ISTJ if her Te is being misread as Ti, which is a possibility (on this particular test, I actually test Ti,Ni,Te)

    Based on how much I can relate to that description, I'm going to guess INTP.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    INTP with INTJ leanings, better that looked at.
