I believe they’re both intended to question common sense to prevent mental stagnation.
While the service these two types perform for humanity is similar, they help us calibrate to new ways of thinking in different ways.
While it would be impractical to even attempt to find exact numbers, nobody will argue that INTPs are rare.
⇧ INTP Meaning INTP stands for “introverted” (I), “intuitive” (N), thinking (T), perceiving (P).
It’s not that they necessarily struggle to find dates.
Nor is it the case that INTPs have trouble “falling in love.” Especially in their youth, INTPs can be easily smitten, especially by EF types.
Back to Myers-Briggs work: Each personality type possesses unique gifts and inclinations that serve an important role in the society; each personality is special in its own way.
People with INTP personality type, which is the subject of this article, account for less than 5 percent of the general population with some sources citing even lower numbers.
As I’ve explained elsewhere, the promise of psychological wholeness is a likely reason why “opposites attract.” The real problem for INTPs is finding a partner who can hold their interest for the long haul.Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off.While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists.For an INTJ, this dominant process is technically called Introverted Intuition, but we’ve nicknamed it “Perspectives.” Perspectives is a learning function (technically called a “perceiving function”), and works by watching one’s own mind form patterns.After years of use, eventually Perspectives begins to see the ‘pattern of the patterns’ and understands that what is happening inside of themselves cognitively is also happening for other people.
