Throughout the years of phycology study, many new ideas and classifications have been brought about once new things are learned about. Many theories have come out, and many are still used and based upon today. The MBTI has become a reference for many phycology works, as this tool helps classify people based on their personality. MBTI stands for Myers-Briggs Personality Test Indicator, and there are currently 16 personality types according to the test. One of the personality types, slightly rare since it only accounts for 3 percent of the population, is the INTP Personality. It is thought-provoking to look into the INTP type, as it has many interesting characteristics to examine.
What Are INTP Personality Types?
INTP stands for Introverted, iNuintivie, Thinking, and Perceiving but it is most commonly known as “The Logician” group. People in this group usually love to be challenged, and their greatest strengths seem to be tied to puzzle and pattern solving. They are often good at detecting people, with their unmatched ability to tell when someone is lying, it is often hard to tell a convincing lite to an INTP.
INTP’s are often thinking, which makes them very creative and open to obstacles that may lay in front of them. Though they may have a persistent fear of failing, it often seems INTP’s will endure any task that they must have to. Some of the most famous INTP persons are Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln for former, and for current people Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Jesse Eisenberg.
How Do INTP Types React To Stress And Pressure?
While INTP types are usually very smart and good at solving equations, they usually have different reactions to stressful situations. Depending on the extremity of the stress level, sometimes information and data that is stored in the memory of the INTP will sometimes interfere with, making it useless. In some cases, if the stress is bad enough, the brain may become “blocked” making problem solving an issue and a difficulty.
When the conflict of stress occurs, an INTP type may feel powerless and unable to control the situation. As a result of rises of stressful encounters, it may become possible that long term impacts will force many INTP’s to play it safe and to never take any chances towards their success.
