Well for stereotypes they're fairly accurate, I fit an awful lot. Don't like any 'star somethings' though. Antisocial, athiest nerd however sums me up nicely.
I seem to fit quite nicely into...I'd say...slightly more than half of the stereotypes that people have listed. I'm decently smart, I try to remain as much of a recluse as is practical, I can't see myself functioning well in a romantic relationship, I like math, and I have an unmabitious streak; those things are very true. However, I have somehow managed to escape being a nerd (probably in part because I don't have the curse of sub-average looks that befalls many a nerd), and I'm actually quite emotional. I wouldn't quite describe myself as "naive", either.
I'm not INTP but it'll be interesting to see which ones. I'll leave only the logical ones.
Here is my list of INTP stereotypes..
1.) 40 living at home in their parents basement.
2.) 40 year old virgin
3.) Socially deprived
4.) Game Addicts
7.) Anti social
10.) Computer experts[/quote]
Here's some more: schizoid. Asexual.
