The Long Winded INTP Video Series!


I’ve been fascinated with exploring the concept of INTP (Introverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving Dominant Functions) in Myers Briggs typology since I discovered it was my type when I was in college.

I tend to take it with a pinch of salt and as a framework of personality ‘bias’ as it were or tendencies but I certainly do identify with the INTP personality type.

In the video series below I explore my own relationship to this personality description from many different perspectives -from dealing with stress, to exploring my strengths and weaknesses in a video diary format over a year or so.

The general themes inherent in INTP of tendency to abstraction, social awkwardness, strong internal thinking ability / intellect in general, interest in Science, difficulty in organising external world, interest in system building etc – all explored in the videos, which explore ALL sides both ugly and positive.
