I'm not comfortable summing up my thoughts on the book just yet; however, I will say that the book was very much worth my time and money. It is as though I have been given a new tool for understanding 'me': self-reflexivity is a beautiful thing.
I had a hard time figuring out if I was an F or T type. This book helped me clarify that. I wasn't sure because I am very frequently moved by emotionally charged situations. I can tear up from watching commercials and many other random or quick events. I'm also a loving, stay at home parent that has always wanted children. I'm beginning to understand why the "stay at home" part has been so very hard for me.
I can't turn my brain off and it's both wonderful and frustrating. I often feel isolated because of it. I isolate myself because it's so fun to learn something new or perfect a skill. I feel isolated because I don't connect on a deeper level with anyone (especially my husband) that feels so deeply about their convictions. While oddly, at the same time, I'm the most open minded person you will ever meet. The Bible Belt and west Texas can be a lonely place for an INTP. I appreciate this book, and hope that I can constructively use some of this information to add richness to my life. A great portion of my father's side of the family could really benefit from reading this too. Of course, now I'm interested in how genetics plays a part in all of this. I bet you can guess what I'm going to do next. Just a side note, most of that side of the family, are in the field of psychiatry.
Thank you for this book. It gave me some peace and much needed connection. It will also help me to decide on a career path as I plan take a reluctant leap into the scary unknown. Happy researching everyone.
I am constantly second-guessing my type, but this book highlighted aspects of the INTP personality you don't usually see. It details the many ways inferior Fe manifests itself in the INTP, and the persistent battle of Ti-Fe.
While the author does break down and explain the INTPs cognitive functions, he does not go in depth with cognitive function dynamics as you may read from other sources. If you're looking for lengthy, detailed descriptions of loops or how Fe looks whilst 'in the grip', then this isn't the book for you. Rather, the author explains how the cognitive functions manifest within the INTP personality, as opposed to the functions themselves.
Overall, I'd recommend this book if you're confused about your type and leaning towards INTP, or if you've studied the functions and just want to learn more about how they can appear in the INTP. This book may even be a good starting point to get you into the cognitive functions theory.
There were certain sections that I felt relied a little too heavily on the author's personal experience but not enough for me to find it dubious.
I would recommend it highly.
I am an INTP and wanted to get some suggestions for career and dating. Found some good info in this book and feel like I understand myself and tendencies better now.
