    INTP - The Thinkers

    Funny alternative MBTI descriptions

    I found a funny rewrite of MBTI types: The REAL Personality Types Made Relevant . (I've seen it posted elsewhere on the forum, but not in the general MBTI forum.)

    It offers a comical look at some of the extreme and negative aspects of each personality type, along with the extreme stereotype. Don't read it if you can't take a joke. ;)

    A funny excerpt about my type, INTP:

    Surprisingly, INTPs are often the hit of the party--not for their sometimes annoying habit of turning every discussion into a debate about semantics nor for their fascinating stories about Pierre de Fermat's habit of writing things in the margins of his books,
    [...]
    Famous INTPs include Pierre de Fermat and almost everyone who knows what Pierre de Fermat wrote in the margins of his book.
    Appropriately, I know who Fermat was, what he wrote in the margins, and why he did so. But I have never been asked to explain this at a party. :p
    snail, Cover3, Invidia and 1 others thanked this post.

    INTP - The Thinkers

    I don't know what Fermat wrote in the margins, but I know that Darwin skipped over Mendel when he was writing in the margins. God, that is tragic. I wish I could go back in history and tell Darwin not to skip Mendel.

    Unknown Personality


    "COMPATIBILITY: ENTPs and ENTJs make natural companions, as the one's unspeakable hunger for power complements the other's unspeakable hunger for knowledge. They do not generally build successful relationships with ESFJs, as ENTPs they are prone to behaving in inconveniently erratic ways, which pisses ESFJs off to no end; and because ENTPs simply do not know how to dress appropriately for formal occasions."

    As far as I know I'm an ENTP, and it's true, I have an unspeakable hunger for knowledge, and I drive my ESFJ sister crazy because of my erratic ways and non-caring about clothes. I wore jeans and hiking boots to a large-city downtown formal symphony I was dragged to, and I bet I was the most comfortable person there. ;)

    Cover3 and ElectricSparkle thanked this post.

    So why Fermat did so?

    Fermat was an ammeter mathematician who studied math for fun. He liked to keep proofs short, concise, and do most of the work in his head. He would write proofs in the margins of books as he read them, not bothering to write them out in full on and actual separate piece of paper.

    One day in the early 1600s he was reading a book and thought of a theorem that he could prove. He wrote in the margin that he had found a wonderful theorem and a proof for it, but even he could not write it in the margin of the book. After his death, others found his note. No one could find his -- or any proof -- for the theorem.

    Finally, just a few years ago, a mathematician devoted his life to solving the problem, and succeeded -- roughly 350 years after Fermat's original conjecture and after dozens (if not hundreds) of failed attempts by other mathematicians. Either Fermat, way back then, had a truly wonderful proof that has eluded the world's finest or his proof was incorrect. Because we haven't been able to prove the theorem without the use of mathematical tools far beyond the knowledge of Fermat's time, it is generally accepted that Fermat's theorem was correct, although his proof was wrong.

    For more, research "Fermat's Last Theorem". Until recently, it was one of the most interesting unsolved problems in mathematics.

    INFP - The Idealists

    This is great man I wasn't able to find this for a long while, thank you so much :)

    INFP - The Idealists

    INFP: The Idealist

    The INFP is a dreamy, imaginitive, idealist, capable of finding the good in anything or anyone, even something as foul as Newark, New Jersey. INFPs are sometimes dangerous to the well-being of society as a whole, as they are prone to adopting subversive and destructive ideologies like "The world should be fair," "People should treat one another well," and "You know, 'Friends' is a really, really stupid television show."

    These irrational thought patterns may sometimes cause INFPs to run off and join the circus, the Resistance, or the Rebellion, where they tend to do well in any position requiring excellent hand-eye coordination or mastery of the Force.

    COMPATIBILITY: INFPs and ISTJs generally exhibit a natural predator/prey relationship, which, though it might appear harsh and cruel from the outside, is all part of the natural cycle of life. In fact, were it not for the predation of the ISTJ, the population of INFPs would soon grow to unsustainable levels, overwhelming the ability of their ecological niche to support them.

    Famous idealists include that girl in your sixth-grade homeroom who got the teacher fired for saying that girls aren't good at math; that guy in the cubicle next to yours who got the manager fired for saying that women don't make good employees; and Anais Nin.
    So true.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    The outside contractor
    INTJs are solid, competent personalities who may seem aloof and even arrogant, but who are typically highly skilled in any field which interests them. INTJs are confident in their skills and knowledge, self-assured, and imaginative; their exceptional problem-solving skills make them ideal architects, auto mechanics, and tools of the evil empire. While it requires the driving will to conquer of an ENTJ to imagine the Death Star and the evil genius of an ENTP to invent its devastating weapons systems, the skill and technical prowess of the INTJ is what makes the whole thing work.

    The INTJ sees life as a problem to be solved. For that reason, the INTJ is the person a company brings in from the outside to streamline production processes and identify redundant assets for termination. The INTJ's combination of analytical problem-solving skills and complete and utter disregard for the morality or consequences of his actions also make him ideal for the job of hatchet man, CIA operative, and help desk operator.

    RECREATION: INTJs are often baffled by the strange and incomprehensible recreational rituals of other people, such as going to parties, watching television, and having sex. Instead, they prefer to spend their leisure time installing twin missile launchers in their cars to deter tailgaters and playing chess with megalomaniac CEOs of the Tyrell corporation.


    COMPATIBILITY: Silly person, INTJs don't have relationships! They may, however build their own friends.

    Famous INTJs include J. F. Sebastian and Sgt. Apone [KIA during a patrol early in the movie Aliens--DouglasMl].


    Or am I an INTP after all? I remember that episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Capt. Picard talks about Fermat's Last Theorem (There can never be a cube on the hypotenuse equal to the sum of the cubes on the other two sides; indeed there can be no object with more dimensions than a square on the hypotenuse equal to the sum of the corresponding objects on the other two sides.) and the marginal note "Remarkable proof!"
