INTPs at their best

At their best, INTPs are the types to keep their heads down and get to work. They have a detached way of looking at problems that allows them to formulate a plan without becoming overwhelmed.

While some people may think that INTPs are impersonal and cold, they simply know how to separate their work from their personal feelings to get the job done. INTPs are kind, considerate, and generally keep to themselves. They rarely cause conflict with others.

Potential development areas for INTPs

While they typically fly under the radar and focus on work, INTPs have a way of appearing detached. This may be fine in a professional setting, but in their personal lives, they might make people feel like they don’t care or aren’t interested.

At work, INTPs tend to suggest complex, out-of-the-box solutions without much thought for how to implement them. They may become frustrated if others aren’t fully on board with their plans.

Types and Stress

INTPs and stress

Seeing as they’re usually focusing on how to solve problems and analyze details, INTPs will become stressed by anything distracting or irritating. Noise and interruptions are very stressful for INTPs.

They’re often upset when others dismiss their ideas because they don’t fully understand them. And, because of their introverted nature, INTPs also become stressed if they are forced to participate in too much socializing, small talk, or frivolous activities.

If you’re an INTP personality type, you can try a few key things to balance these feelings of stress.
