About INTP – ‘The Architect’
INTPs are architects of creative ideas and systems. Preferring theoretical rather than practical applications, INTPs love theory and abstract ideas. They are future-oriented and value truth, knowledge, and competence. INTPs usually prefer working in technical fields that provide the opportunities to apply logic to theories to find solutions and develop innovative approaches and systems. They prefer professionalism in a work environment that encourages freethinking, independence, and improvisation. INTPs make up 3.3 percent of the U.S. population.
