Illustrations of Type – INTP

Illustrations of Type – INTP

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction – “Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a group with INTP personality type preferences.

First thing to notice is that they did not stay confined to the flipchart paper, drawing pictures on the white board wall. This, in itself, is a fun depiction of INTPs, literally, thinking outside of the box and modifying the rules as they go.

Also notice how, externally, they are open-ended, adaptable and agile, asking questions and seeing patterns. To do this they generally use their auxiliary function, Extraverted Intuition (Ne). Internally they are busy solving problems and figuring out “why” using their dominant function, Introverted Thinking (Ti).

You may also enjoy looking at how other INTP groups have completed this illustration of type exercise. If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
