Each of us has our individual quirks. Occasional weirdness makes up the fabric of social groups and should be celebrated. With that, your occasionally INTP friend can still throw you off guard with a brutally honest comment. Sometimes, knowing what to expect even from the rarest personality type can make you a better communicator, whether that’s on a date or with friends.
INTPs, driven by their intensely introverted and logical worldview, occasionally speak the truth even at the worst times. This, in turn, can create some real awkward silences or nervous glances. Whilst some extroverts may find this uncomfortable, your honesty and genuine communication make you a valuable addition to any friend group. Your random, occasionally unstructured thought processes see you constantly leading your friends down the rabbit hole of eye-opening insights.
INFJ – whilst as introverted as the last type – are highly sensitive and perceptive to the intangible. You may spend hours decoding patterns between the planets and forming cutting-edge insights. However, you might be conducting these great leaps of analysis whilst tripping over doorsteps, forgetting your phone, and slipping your shoes on the wrong feet.
Led by your dominant intuition and analytical capabilities, far-reaching insights and mysterious perceptions are yours for the taking. But your relative ignorance of sense-related matters can occasionally interrupt your great mental leaps. This trait is hilarious and lovable to those close to you.
Your extroversion and feeling-focused worldview makes you wonderfully in touch with your own emotional wellbeing. These combine to create a youthful sense of playfulness: contagious and addictive, you’re the first of a group to leap at new experiences and ideas.
Never too old to throw yourself onto a trampoline, or belt out your favorite tracks at a spontaneous karaoke session over the car radio, every new adventure is embarked upon with incredible effervescence and enthusiasm.
Though incredibly charismatic and energetic, you occasionally have a habit of jumping on to the next big thing too quickly: old friends can be left feeling abandoned when that spontaneity and energy is shifted to the next friend group of interest.
As introverted as you are highly perceptive, your mother tongue is sarcasm. You speak sarcasm with such frequency that most of the time, people can’t tell if you’re being serious.
Incredibly adaptable, you can simply pick up a floundering project and toss it into the recycling bin – which happens so often you’re now a pretty good shot. Your brain cells are filled with small, bitesize facts about anything and everything, making you a force to be reckoned with on pub quiz nights.
However, this willingness to share these fun facts – coupled with your sarcasm – can occasionally lead to some light-hearted jokes at your gullible friends’ expense.
ISTPs enjoy moving forward, eager to approach the world with their keen appreciation for the sensory experiences on offer. Thanks to your astute awareness of your surroundings, you’re also fantastic in an emergency.
This varied mix of characteristics make you fascinating and engaging in all the right ways.
