Free 16 Personality Type Test - Find Your Type

Not sure what Myers Briggs type you are? Take a free Jungian Type (16 types) test to find out what your type is.

16 Types

INTP Subtypes

Each INTP result has subtle differences, which can be captured through subtypes.

Page contents:


Knowing you are an INTP helps you understand how to interact with the world around you. But there will be extra detail hidden within each of the four letters. We dive deeper into each letter and introduce the concept of 'subtypes' and how they can further explain your unique personality.


An INTP knows they are introverted. But what type of introvert are they? Subtypes help to define the differences.

INTP Subtypes

What variations exist within type INTP?

The MBTI result of INTP can be broken down further to reveal a more nuanced personality profile. Have you had a Myers Briggs result INTP and thought "that's kind of me"? That could be because each of the four letters has two variants, or 'subtypes'. Let's take a deeper look at the subtypes contained within type INTP.

face reading open book

The four letters of the 16 types model (for example Myers Briggs®) are a useful shorthand to describe personality types. If you want a little more detail it's possible to look at subtypes.

An INTP knows they are (I)ntroverted, i(N)tuitive, (T)hinking, and (P)erceiving. But what type of introvert are they? And what form does their intuition take? Subtypes are a way of answering those questions.


Introverted: the Subtypes

Two variants of introversion: independent and reflective

Introversion has an interpersonal dimension (Independent), and an intrapersonal dimension (Reflective). Interpersonally, introverts prefer their own company and find time alone regenerative. Intrapersonally, introverts direct their time and energy inwards, reflecting on their thoughts, feelings, and emotions to gain deeper insight.

  • Ii: Introverted-Independent
  • Ir: Introverted-Reflective

Ii and Ir: What's The Difference?

Introverted types can take the form of two variants: Ii and Ir

Introverts can lean towards being either introverted-independent or introverted-reflective. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Ii
Primary type:
Introverted (I)
Subtype:
Independent (i)
What this means:
Independent introverts prefer own company, work best alone, and prioritize individual pursuits.

Extended subtype:

Ir
Primary type:
Introverted (I)
Subtype:
Reflective (r)
What this means:
Reflective introverts tend to spend time introspecting on emotions, feelings, and ideas.

Intuition: the subtypes

Two variants of intuition: creative and unorthodox

Intuitives can be broadly defined as being either creative, or unorthodox. Creative Intuitives focus on new ideas or innovations, focusing on improvement in the conventional sense. Unorthodox Intuitives, however, take a more abstract and unconventional approach to problem-solving, identifying unusual solutions.

  • Nc: Intuitive-Creative
  • Nu: Intuitive-Unorthodox

Nc and Nu: What's The Difference?

Intuitive types can take the form of two variants

Intuitive types can lean towards being either intuitive-creative or intuitive-unorthodox. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Nc
Primary type:
Intuitive (N)
Subtype:
Creative (c)
What this means:
Creative intuitives are imaginative, innovative, and readily generate new ideas or theories.

Extended subtype:

Nu
Primary type:
Intuitive (N)
Subtype:
Unorthodox (u)
What this means:
Unorthodox intuitives are abstract, unconventional, and think outside the box.

Thinking: the subtypes

Two variants of thinking: Logical and Objective

Thinkers fall under one of two categories, logical thinkers and objective thinkers. Logical thinkers focus on applying rule based thinking, relying on deductive and inductive reasoning. Objective thinkers, however, focus on removing the emotional element from decision-making, maintaining a stoic and unbiased approach.

  • Tl: Thinking-Logical
  • To: Thinking-Objective

Tl and To: What's The Difference?

Thinking types can take the form of two variants: Tl and To

Thinking types can lean towards being either thinking-logical or thinking-objective. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Tl
Primary type:
Thinking (T)
Subtype:
Logical (l)
What this means:
Logical thinkers focus on structured rule based thinking, often with formulae and deduction.

Extended subtype:

To
Primary type:
Thinking (T)
Subtype:
Objective (o)
What this means:
Objective thinkers focus on removing emotion from decisions, remaining stoic and unbiased.

Perceiving: the subtypes

Two variants of perceiving: spontaneous and versatile.

Perceiving types are likely to fall under one of two categories, versatile or spontaneous. Spontaneous perceiving types are happy-go-lucky, making decisions on a whim and are all for living for the moment. Versatile perceiving types tend to be cognitively flexible, readily adapting to new information and thriving on variety.

  • Ps: Perceiving-Spontaneous
  • Pv: Perceiving-Versatile

Ps and Pv: What's The Difference?

Perceiving types can take the form of two variants: Ps and Pv

Perceiving types can lean towards being either perceiving-Spontaneous or perceiving-Versatile. There are subtle differences, which are listed here.

Extended subtype:

Ps
Primary type:
Perceiving (P)
Subtype:
Spontaneous (s)
What this means:
Perceiving-Spontaneous suggests a person is more energetic, often on autopilot and is content to go with the flow.

Extended subtype:

Pv
Primary type:
Perceiving (P)
Subtype:
Versatile (v)
What this means:
Perceiving-Versatile people are highly open to new experiences, they crave variety and will avoid becoming trapped in a routine.

Summary: INTP Subtypes

Subtypes: Dichotomies within dichotomies

Research shows that the traditional four dichotomies are in fact multidimensional and nuanced, displaying at least two distinct variants which we call subtypes. The addition of subtypes provides a richer and more accurate picture of an individual's personality, while retaining the many advantages of the simple 16 type model as used in the MBTI Test. By understanding your subtype, you learn about the behavioral styles which separate you from others who share your overall type.
