Meet The 'Scientists'

Scientists primarily rely on reason and originality They are thrifty and ingenious at their best and tactless and self-centred at their worst They enjoy logical and philosophical thought and a chance for good existential discussions Scientists appreciate a chance to play the devil's advocate and to explore different sides of the picture 

They are masters of argumentation and tend to love to trade and barter with other people While sometimes seen as lazy, the Scientist personality type is programmed to respond very well to challenge When pushed to their limits, they reveal inventiveness and show many secret skills

  1. I noticed a discrepancy. The chart for INTP Cognitive functions lists them in this order: 1 Introverted Thinking, 2 Extroverted iNtuition, 3 Introverted Sensing, 4 Extroverted Feeling. However, below the chart where I believe you want to expand on the cognitive functions in chart, you list 1 Introverted iNtuition, 2 Introverted Thinking, 3 Thinking Perceiving, 4 iNtuitive Perceiving. This list does not stay in sync with the chart. Is this intentional? Is the chart related to the text below it? Or is the text covering a different area altogether?

  2. I particularly like your perspective that the intp has an entj business perspective. I'm 77 now, long retired, but that is how I always believed I operated in the business world. That said, I do not consider myself an entj at my core. Intp seems to fit me a lot better not just in terms of how I see myself but also how I have lived my life over these 77 years. Still, it was hard for me to accept being an intp because of all the descrptions out there of how intp's supposedly operate out in the world.
    So I was left feeling I just didn't fit anywhere - to the extent that I could not understand how other people could be so sure of their type. It was making it hard for me to have any credence in the whole typology system. As an introverted thinking type, I tend to find inconsistent systems pretty intolerable lol.
    So thank you for this approach.
