It is exhausting.

The Teacher

Quote:
Even more than the other Idealists,Teachers have a natural talent for leading students or trainees toward learning, or as Idealists like to think of it, they are capable of calling forth each learner's potentials. Teachers (around two percent of the population) are able - effortlessly, it seems, and almost endlessly-to dream up fascinating learning activities for their students to engage in. In some Teachers, this ability to fire the imagination can amount to a kind of genius which other types find hard to emulate. But perhaps their greatest strength lies in their belief in their students. Teachers look for the best in their students, and communicate clearly that each one has untold potential, and this confidence can inspire their students to grow and develop more than they ever thought possible.

In whatever field they choose, Teachers consider people their highest priority, and they instinctively communicate personal concern and a willingness to become involved. Warmly outgoing, and perhaps the most expressive of all the types, Teachers are remarkably good with language, especially when communicating in speech, face to face. And they do not hesitate to speak out and let their feelings be known. Bubbling with enthusiasm, Teachers will voice their passions with dramatic flourish, and can, with practice, become charismatic public speakers. This verbal ability gives Teachers a good deal of influence in groups, and they are often asked to take a leadership role.

Teachers like things settled and organized, and will schedule their work hours and social engagements well ahead of time -- and they are absolutely trustworthy in honoring these commitments. Valuing as they do interpersonal cooperation and harmonious relations, Teachers are extraordinarily tolerant of others, are easy to get along with, and are usually popular wherever they are.

Teachers are highly sensitive to others, which is to say their intuition tends to be well developed. Certainly their insight into themselves and others is unparalleled. Without a doubt, they know what is going on inside themselves, and they can read other people with uncanny accuracy. Teachers also identify with others quite easily, and will actually find themselves picking up the characteristics, emotions, and beliefs of those around them. Because they slip almost unconsciously into other people's skin in this way, Teachers feel closely connected with those around them, and thus show a sincere interest in the joys and problems of their employees, colleagues, students, clients, and loved ones.

INTP

Introverted: 44
Intuitive: 12
Thinking: 12
Perceiving: 22

Description:
The Architect

Quote:
Personality

INTPs exhibit the greatest precision in thought and language of all the types; they tend to see distinction
and inconsistencies in thought and language instantaneously. The one word which captures the unique
style of INTPs is architect – the architect of ideas and systems as well as the architect of edifices. This
type is found in only 1 percent of the population and therefore is not encountered as frequently as some
other types.

INTPs detect contradictions in statements no matter how distant in space or time the contradictory
statements were produced. The intellectual scanning of INTPs has a principled quality; that is, INTPs
search for whatever is relevant and pertinent to the issue at hand. Consequently, INTPs can concentrate
better than any other type.
Authority derived from office, position, or wide acceptance does not impress INTPs. Only statements
that are logical and coherent carry weight. External authority per se is irrelevant. INTPs abhor
redundancy and incoherence. Possessing a desire to understand the universe, an INTP is constantly
looking for natural law. Curiosity concerning these keys to the universe is a driving force in this type.
INTPs prize intelligence in themselves and in others, but can become intellectual dilettantes as a result of
their need to amass ideas, principles, or understanding of behavior. And once they know something, it is
remembered. INTPs can become obsessed with analysis. Once caught up in a thought process. That
thought process seems to have a will of its own for INTPs, and they persevere until the issue is
comprehended in all its complexity. They can be intellectual snobs and may show impatience at times
with others less endowed intellectually. This quality, INTPs find generates hostility and defensive
behavior on the part of others, who may describe an INTP as arrogant.
For INTPs, the world exists primarily to be understood. Reality is trivial, a mere arena for proving ideas.
It is essential that the universe is understood and that whatever is stated about the universe is stated
correctly, with coherence and without redundancy. This is the INTPs final purpose. It matters not
whether others understand or accept his or her truths.

Career

The INTP is the logician, the mathematician, the philosopher, the scientist; any pursuit requiring
architecture of ideas intrigues this type. INTP’s should not, however, be asked to work out the
implementation or application of their models to the real world. The INTP is the architect of a system
and leaves it to others to be the builder and the applicator. Very often therefore, the INTP’s work is not
credited to him or her. The builder and the applier gains fame and fortune, while the INTP’s name
remains obscure. Appreciation of an INTP’s theoretical work frequently comes posthumously – or the
work may never be removed from library shelves at all and thus lost.
INTP’s tend not to be writers or to go into sales work. They are, however, often excellent teachers,
particularly for advanced students, although INTP’s do not always enjoy much popularity, for they can
be hard taskmasters. They are not good at clerical tasks and are impatient with routine details. They
prefer to work quietly, without interruption, and often alone. If an organization is to use the talents of an
INTP appropriately, the INTP must be given an efficient support staff who can capture ideas as they
emerge and before the INTP loses interest and turns to another idea.

Home

INTP’s take their mating relationship seriously and usually are faithful and devoted – albeit preoccupied
at times. They are not likely to welcome constant social activity or disorganization in the home. In all
probability, the mate of an INTP will initiate and manage the social life. If left to his or her own devises
the INTP mate will retreat into the world of books and emerge only when physical needs become
imperative. INTP’s are, however, willing, compliant, and easy to live with, although somewhat forgetful
of appointment, anniversaries and rituals of daily living – unless reminded. They may have difficulty
expressing their emotions verbally, and the mate of an INTP may believe that he/she is somewhat taken
for granted. As a parent, the INTP is devoted; they enjoy children, and are serious about their
upbringing. The home of an INTP parent is usually calm, low-key in discipline, but well run and
ordered.
INTP’s deal with the environment primarily through intuition, and their stronger quality, the thinking
function, remains relatively hidden except in close associations. Therefore, INTP’s are often
misunderstood, seen as difficult to know, and seldom perceived at their true level of competency. They
are inclined to be shy except when with a close friends, and their reserve is difficult to penetrate. They
are very adaptable until one of their principles is violated. Then INTP’s are not adaptable at all! They
may have difficulty in being understood by others because they tend to think in a complicated fashion
and want to be precise, never redundant in their communications. Because their feeling qualities may be
underdeveloped, they may be insensitive to the wants and wishes of others, often unaware of the existence
of these wants and wishes.

Midlife

At midlife the INTP might do well to work on increasing awareness of emotional responses, responding to
the value preferences of others, and verbalizing to others the INTP’s awareness of these values. At
midlife one of the tasks of the INTP is to develop an ability to play for play’s sake; not to learn something
or to somehow improve a skill. Working on the sensual side of his or her nature may provide a source of
new pleasure and excitement.

Seems you got some pretty low percentages too, all below 50.

Can anyone explain the basis for choosing these letters then?

Ok. Percentages have to do with how much you lean towards a certain tenancy associated with that letter.

For example. My E is like at 3% meaning I have a combination of I and E tenancies, but I lean more towards having E tenancies. I require more time alone than an person with 80% E. Another difference is that because I am very close to being an 'I' I have a tendency to internalize my thoughts more than a person with 80% E.

Each of the two letter pairings have minute difference like that depending on where on the scale you lay. It really can make a difference in your personality too. And make you have strong traits of another letter combination even though your traits are largely associated with one letter combination.

I think those numbers are the amount by which you lean in the direction of that letter. For example, if your first letter comes up as "I 10%" that means that you scored 45% for E and 55% for I.

At least that's how I think it works.

I've done this sort of test before and I find it highly flawed. Yes, some aspects are spot on, most are questionable, and some are flat out wrong. Tarot cards. Zodiac signs. Just vague enough to apply to anyone.

Whether or not you find it accurate also depends on what type of person you are, amusingly enough. Some will focus on what's right, others on what's wrong. Some are skeptics, others believers who will interpret the information to fit them, sometimes drawing long shots.
