INTP’s are logical, analytical, independent, original, creative and insightful.  They are often brilliant and ingenious.  They work best alone and need quiet time to concentrate.  They focus their attention on ideas and are frequently detached from other people.  They love theory and abstract ideas and value knowledge and competency.  INTP’s are creative thinkers who are not too interested in practical application.  They dislike detail and routine and need freedom to develop, analyze and critique new ideas.  These types maintain high standards for their work.
