INTPs are private individuals who rarely let even close friends or family into the inner sanctum, which contributes to their slightly detached persona. This trait also means that they are not natural communicators as they inhabit quite a complex world of ideas and possibilities so that providing a simple rationale or ‘quick and dirty’ explanation is not easy for the INTP. In input terms the INTP will grasp, synthesise and process information very quickly but may get quickly bored once the activity becomes workaday as their energies are driven by the complex and, once the issue, problem or project is sorted/solved they will withdraw looking for the next ‘big’ issue preferring others to carry the issue forward to workable solutions. They can therefore show frustration with those who are not quite on the same page. INTPs also do not like structures or and prefer to work in their own way at their own pace which is sporadic, full one then full off. INTPs are blunt and to the point and speak with the same economy with which they work and so ask for an opinion then it will be honest, to the point and often bone-jarringly direct which may cause some debris. This is never done with any other intention of telling the truth in the most economic way possible. INTPs may struggle with small talk or indeed any talk that does not stimulate their interest.
