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.

You can see their interest in using Thinking to solve problems. Outwardly they tend to ask questions, challenge, probe, and see patterns. They show up as curious, adaptable, and unconventional.

Inwardly they are figuring out what is going on.

This combination of Extraverted Intuition (Ne) as an auxiliary function and Introverted Thinking (Ti) as a dominant function tends to show up as agility and independent problem solving.

The phrase “seeing the target in chaos” is a great representation of this creative, resourceful style of processing.

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.
