INTP – The Thinkers
The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.
They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.
I did Myers Briggs before – my ESRC research student’s identity was something different. I don’t like the last sentence at all – when I’m arrogant, impatient and insensitive, it’s because I damn well intended it. In any case I’d have preferred something macho like Bob’s last sentence:
“They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.”
And I don’t mean finding out (thanks to the New Centrist) on GenderAnalyzer that I write in a somewhat mannish way.
P.S. Did you know that Bob goes to work on a rodeo horse?
