An INTP Profile
by Paul James Original version: April 5, 1999 revised and published on the web: March 12, 2000 INTP is one of the 16 personality types defined in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). I will assume that visitors to this page already have a basic knowledge of the MBTI system for I wish to concentrate on describing the INTP type as best I can. The descriptions below are based on personal experience combined with knowledge derived from other MBTI sources and I hope that other INTPs and non-INTPs alike may find some of this material illuminating. This page may be updated and expanded when appropriate. For a general introduction and overview of MBTI temperament analysis, visit Robert Winer's excellent resource at Gesher.

What is MBTI?: TheMindBehind.Net The Myers Briggs Type indicator (mbti) is a professional personality sorter which is used by many psychologists, companies and schools to better understand there clients or staff. When you master it you can spot personality types within minutes, so you know the best way to get along with the person you are dealing with. The sorter will show you how they see the world, what is important to them and it can really help you respect other people. And of course it will help you understand yourself better. I really think the purpose of mbti is to change your one perspective of the world into 16 different perspectives.

Temperament Website - Portrait of the Rational Inventor (ENTP) Inventors begin building gadgets and mechanisms as young children, and never really stop, though as adults they will turn their inventiveness to many kinds of organizations, social as well as mechanical.

How to Choose and Use Financial Software - Personal Finance Hop in your car for a long drive and you probably start glancing at your speed, gas, miles and temperature gauges. Yet during that other long drive known as life, most of us turn a blind eye to our financial gauges—either out of fear or because we aren’t sure what to do about what we see.

Most programs track and display your budget, spending, banking, bills, savings, investments, retirement plans and debt levels—all in one convenient place. The more often you look at these numbers, the richer you’re likely to become. Studies show that people who get into the habit of monitoring their money wind up wealthier than those who don’t.

Socionics Description: The Best INFP Guide Ever Written The Imaginative INFp If the INFp had a theme song, it would go thusly: “Vado, ma dove? Oh dei! Se de’ tormenti suoi, se de’ sospiri miei Non sente il ciel pietа. Tu che mi parli al core Guida I miei passi, amore; Tu quel ritegno or togli Che dubitar mi fа.” ** “I go – but where, o gods since for his torment and my pleas Heaven offers no pity?

Why I Changed My Name & What It Taught Me About Who I Am If you take a look at my bio here on the Buffer blog, my Twitter account or my website, you’ll see that my name is Belle Beth Cooper. That’s been my name for about eight months. Prior to that it was Corina Mackay. Corina Mary Mackay, in fact, since about ten days after I was born. Changing your name so dramatically isn’t something many of us do, so I thought it would be fun to tell the story of why I changed it, what the process was like and what I learned from it.
