The INTP is very sceptical, independent, and values independence in others.
The INTP is intellectually curious and enjoys the more complex and theoretical problems, often for their own sake. Practical application has little interest for them, preferring to identify the solutions and then leave someone else to plan the work. They do however like things done properly and have very high standards. The routine, the detail bores them rigid and they will put off completing tasks, especially those that they see as unnecessary, preferring to 'blitz' them nearer the deadline. For the INTP follow-through does not come naturally, and completion will be via huge bursts of energy at the last minute but it will be done.
The general chitchat of social life is not for INTPs and they prefer to speak only about areas of interest and importance.
The INTP is deep and private and wary about close emotional involvement as emotions tends to be outside their own life-space.
The INTP will not fit snugly into a typical structure, valuing independence, of thought and action and needing their space.
