INTP – Internally analyzing expansive solutions

INTP – Internally analyzing expansive solutions

16-part series by Catherine Rains, M.S., CPP Professional Services Solutions Consultant, with some great tips on Type and Careers.  As we continue this blog series for the next few weeks and continue to post on each type preference, you can check back here to find them all in one central place.  

INTP – Internally analyzing expansive solutions

Like ISTP types, INTP preferences are motivated by Introverted Thinking, which translates into conducting a thorough analysis of any problem and not requiring or seeking input during their decision making process.  Unlike their ISTP counterparts however, they will do this analysis with the long term vision in mind, and the vision could be an external brainstorming of all the innovative, out of the box solutions they can think up (Extroverted Intuition). With NT working together, they are constantly looking for what doesn’t work, and looking for creative solutions to fix the system.  When they are done fixing/improving project “A”, they are quickly onto project “B”, leaving the actual long-term implementation to other types.  Careers identified as attractive to this type by those that filled out my survey include: Comedy writer, Advertising, Radio Talk Show Host, Architect, Attorney, CEO/President, Artist, Organizational Development, Change Management, Instructional Designer, Financial Educator, all aspects of Human Resources, Consulting, and Employment Law.

Call to those of you who prefer INTP– what other careers have you been attracted to?  The more we add to this list the better and feel free to repeat what is already listed above.  We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that other types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer INTP.
