    20% of INTPs are said to be "gifted" in intelligence, whereas 37% of INTJs are.

    Yet some of the most crazy minds, overall, have been INTP. Socrates (the other one), Einstein, Charles Darwin, etc.

    I know my bias and voted accordingly: INTP is the smartest of the two. I can only speak from personal experience, in which I usually obliterate INTJs. Usually. Not always. INTJs, at the very least, are more talented and balanced.

    Their talents are enviable, and they can get laid.

    From my personal experience, INTPs are the "hackers" while INTJs are the "Researchers"

    Lame. My brother is an INTJ and he's dumber than wood. Whenever he needs something fixed, he comes to me for help, and I'm an INFP.

    Statistics have shown INTJ. Though, I think INTJ has a more balanced intelligence, like a combination of the logical abilities of the INTP and the creative and writing abilities of the INFP. Our powerful intuition is often more efficient than logic or feeling. But I fear becoming the jack of all trades and the master of none. Yes, the average INTJ is smarter than the average INTP, but they have Einstein and Leonardo Da Vinci. Then again, Newton, I've always seen typed as INTJ. Actually, there are about 1.5 times as many INTP as INTJ, so that may have something to do with this imbalance.
    Leonardo Da Vinci was ENTP. Says I.

    Really...? I "think" it this way :
    a=charming
    b=attractive
    c=beautiful
    d=adorable

    It's interesting you would say that, because it is actually the INTP that is often called the jack of all trades, whereas the INTJ is known as the expert. This is because Ti-Ne seeks to build a holistic web of everything, which makes specializing in a single field inexpedient. Of course, that has a lot more to do with how you choose to apply your functions. My grandfather is INTJ and a huge proponent of getting a "good general education", with which I wholeheartedly agree.

    The comment on writing is interesting, because I have been told I am actually very good at evoking emotion and suspense when I do creative writing, which even I have to admit seems like an odd gift for an INTP to have but for some reason I ended up with it. INTJ's are unquestionably the best NT fiction writers on average however, probably because of the dominant intuition and the not-quite-as-bad feeling function, just like they are most intelligent on average because of the dominant intuition. That Ni is quite a powerful thing. And I'm not at all ashamed to admit it, because generalizations are irrelevant to the individual person. There is no such thing as a collective IQ because (to paraphrase a famous INTJ author) there is no such thing as a collective brain. I'm on the 99th percentile, and that result was not from an internet test, so I feel quite secure.

    Sorry, but I have one more reason for us to envy INTJ's: Darwin was actually one of them. I know, soooo jealous! But what do you expect for a type known as "the Sceintist"? (Einstein and Socrates are unquestionable INTPs, however).

    And this is also true. Mind you, the differences between the ENTP and INTP are subtler than those between the INTJ and INTP so it is harder to make a definite call on that one.

    Lol, it's true, but it's a stereotype. I'm completely technologically inept. I'd actually wager more than completely. And I am such a researcher...

    Philosophically, NTPs are the rationalists whereas NTJs are the empiricists. Makes a lot of sense on many levels if you think about it.
