INFJ's and ENFJ's usually like INTP's so I would not say they are the most unliked.

Lots of people see me as smart, I find that finding a relationship is more important to me now that I am older.

I'm an INTP female.
I remember my friends often telling me they often don't get my vocabularies, but they like how I can analyze their personal stories using theories of psychology, sociology, communication, philosophy, etc.
I like reading non-fiction books, watch anime, especially about slice of life, mystery, criminal, psychology, adventure.
I get along better with males and another female thinkers, since they don't get easily offended by my insensitive jokes or comments and more easy-going.
But one typical thing about female INTP that doesn't apply to me is their ignorance on appearance, gossip, and social media. Though not as well-groomed and concerned as my other female friends, I still put some efforts in maintaining appearances in real life and also social media. It's very beneficial in my social life and I gain trust and favor from others more easily. But I do it because it's necessary for me to build a good image since I deal with public. As for gossips, I listen to it since I use it as study cases for my personal theories.
That's my kind of INTP female.

Female INTP's are prolly my best kind of match. I need my Ti engaged and if a woman can do that (with their Ne) then that is going to be a turn on.

Ti girls are one step forward 3 backward. All the time.
No progress. It might look like progress for some minutes but then u realize relationship is dead. And u need to tell them I'm sorry need to escape.
Te girls are crazy. They just do whatever they do.
No reason. But at least they don't make you feel like you did something bad or polygraph the shit out of your head.
Yeah Te girls are better. Sorry.
ISTPs aren't that bad tho. For sex and fun. Not so good for debating but if you are funny they will praise you as what they call "sun god", INTJs do same thing but they don't tell you. Haha. U could spend 3 days without taking a shower and they would smell themselves and agree both should take a shower together and have sex with menstruation. And u can take the shape of a vampire.

I would go with isfps or intjs. Infps are fine too but they find my lack of softness to be unconfortable in the long run and I end up spitting at their face for being so fucking retarded. Please women. I also spit at infps men for same reasons.
With Te/Ti you can be as dirty as you want. Language, body, thoughts. Anything can be said and done. But Ti. Damn, forget about it.
Bad thing about isfps and intjs is that they only communicate deep soul stuff in a few occasions and sometimes you wonder if they died and its just another wet dream.
I haven't been with a Ne Dom women but I think it has to be an scary experience. The way they go from one absolutely unuseful topic to the other or make random jokes with no punch at all is something I cannot appreciate.

Edit: I wold like to add:
Isfps/istps/intjs are fine with ur anger. U can tell them who u hate why and how they should die and they will understand.
Ti fe: "ohhh its horrible"

INTP women are the most amazing creatures. They've got all of the good traits of INTPs and not a lot of the bad. All of the autistic tendencies get beaten out through forced socialization.

There's one in my area, and she's asexual. FML.

I would give my left nut (you only need one) to go on a date with a female INTP. For some reason, the pattern in my life is that I continually attract INFPs that eventually accuse me of being a soulless robot...

Haha, I like Bill Burr. I can listen to his podcast as long as I take breaks. He can be too negative sometimes, but damn he is hilarious. I'm a female INTP. I know what you mean about INFP, they need too much emotional support for me. I have found the ultimate relationship and it is with a well developed, older male INTP. He understands me on the deepest level possible and that has allowed us to develop deep love and trust for one another.

Keep looking and you'll find one. Being an INTP female, you have to learn how to be tough. There are a lot of things I thought I was wrong for or something was wrong with me, but I found out it's just the way I am. It would be really cool to have a well developed INTP female friend. Most girls annoy me or I dismiss because I don't think I can connect with them intellectually. Also, they want to tell me all their problems and want emotional support.

Yeah, I find that my role in a relationship with female friends will have to be focused on the things I am good at -- (1) I'm a good listener and quick to understand what my friends are telling me and (2) I provide really good sensible advice. I've figured out how to deliver truth in ways that don't feel like slaps across the face, at this point in life, but it's still the focal point of my interactions. And while I can talk about experiences with them, I'm usually talking more about my areas of knowledge with my friends.

I've had other women who just want to talk or expect me to tell them what they want to hear and make them feel better, or expect me to constantly drop everything to listen to them when they have every little problem... and that kind of thing does not last long. I am really good at listening and providing coherent, workable advice and cutting through people's confusion; I am not good as a daily chat partner. So I have sometimes lost casual friends that way, they go and find someone else who does that kind of thing.

I felt bad at first because I am very adaptable and would like to think I can be everything to everyone but.... nope. Maybe on occasion, but I am who I am and can't long-term be someone else.

I am this way a lot of the time as well. I actually give a shit about people. *shrug*

It does royally suck when I can't help them with some sort of advice. It doesn't happen all that often (because I usually have something to share) but some problems are simply unsolvable in the moment.

I don't think INTP females are the most disliked type. The most unnoticed, possibly but not the most disliked.

As many earlier people stated the INTP female is kind of like the INTP male but with less of the problems due to brute socialization. I remember as a kid always wanting to be a boy so my mom would leave me alone about being nice or polite.

Tbh whenever you get a dominant introverted type with no Te, you're gonna get someone who's likely to go unnoticed/slip under most people's perception. That's just been my experience. The world is meant for ExxJs not IxxPs.

Most disliked type would likely go to male INTPs honestly. Lack of Te, combined with the immature social skills, need for solitary time and not being actively curbed by socialization to be more outgoing leads to basically most denizens of the r/incels board. Shame, cause a healthy male INTP can be very engaging and fun to talk to.

- kind of immature Fi when she should have strong Fi or Fe (caregiver for individual person -loyal or tending for groups -loyal) Fi in trietary - a lot of butthurt and recjection = cold bitch
- and that fucking TE. Outspoken and daring to argue with mighty ESTJ men. = mean bitch

I don't think "disliked" is correct because of the innocuous nature of the INTP male in general (unless it's the cynical flavor that is always telling everyone why their ideas are stupid and their traditions are abusive). Mostly where the INTP male would be an irritant would mainly be with structured people who feel they have a finely honed process in place or some worthwhile tradition, while he simply floats along doing his own thing without regard and/or inadvertently derailing things. Or they might think he is weak if they are strong Te folks or Type A folks and he is not conforming to some male-gendered social model or taking charge/responsibility in the ways they expect.

I think rather than "disliked", the word would be "dismissed" as ineffectual or irrelevant or something....

INTPs in general seem to be soft-sell, behind the scenes folk... they make things work / work much better, if focused on a process, but tend not to spearhead things or force them to happen.

Folks, you gotta ask yourselves what the hell the dominant function of an introvert has to do with the way they are perceived from the outside. Even by mbti theory that doesn't make sense. The whole thing sounds like the classic misguided interpretation of what introvert means - that it supposedly means "recluse" or something. I don't buy that story. INTPs go unnoticed and don't make things happen? You should ask my former employers about that. I personally have bever been content with being some invisible worker bee. INTPs are socially immature? Folks, once again, with the emotional acuity, the analytical mindset, and a bit of practice - the INTP is like muthafuckin Neo in the matrix. I can see things in slow motion and shit.

Kudos to you for being at the more assertive/engaging end of the spectrum.

Yes, if you gear up and direct your resources towards the external world, and develop self-confidence, then your potency can become formidable. Why do you think the direction of integration for Fives predicts a movement towards Eight?

Another thing to take into account is type maturity. Being fairly young most types around me, including intps, aren't very mature.

So I guess I should specify that mature intps might not follow the same trends when their stack is well developed

I think it depends on the area on which type is disliked most. Where I live in the middle of nowhere, it is very conservative and traditions/gender stereotypes are prevalent. The stereotypical woman is an ESFJ and the stereotypical man is an ISTJ. INTPs are more like ISTJs than ESFJs. Female INTPs are the complete opposite of ESFJs.

I personally think in my area female INTPs are disliked more than male INTPs. Male INTPs are just seen as "odd ducks" while female INTPs are seen as having something wrong with them. The culture/community where I live has a problem with ostracizing people who do not conform to the stereotypes.

Some people were saying that male INTPs are the most disliked but I personally think that is not true (at least in my community). The male INTP in my area is well liked and looked at by people as kind of a class clown. I, a female INTP, am seen as a rebel/troublemaker and am unpopular.

1st Post here. I am an INTP female. I've actually ever met two INTPs in my life, being aware that both are INTPs. With one, I get along really well, the other gives me trouble - think his J is too strong, he's like really on the border.

I've always been seen as odd, weird, different and felt alienated most my life. The person above me wrote about not conforming with the stereotypes, I think that fits pretty well. I remember one girl telling me months after we've met that she had troubles to approach me for about 3 months (new job). Later on she wondered why, cause I've never given any obvious reason to. I guess INTPs have a certain vibe around them that makes it hard for others to assess what they see, especially if its a woman/girl.

Being logical/rational is so foreign for most (in a female), that they can't process is properly. Not throwing around hugs and kisses, not wearing makeup or pretty clothes, not adjusting to the norm makes you stand out a lot even tho that's the exact opposite of what you want as an I. You stand out pretty much, regardless what you do. You adjust > "That's so not you", you don't "you stand out like a yellow flower in a sea of red".

I must admit I've never thought about the male/female difference cause it was so normal for me that I've never thought how not normal it is

Hahah!!! What is your type, may I ask? I can be very unfriendly/mean if I don't like the people I am around. Then again, I can be the sweetest, most caring person... it all depends on who you are or who I am around. The people that see me as a cold, uncaring bitch are people I don't give a shit about in the first place because I don't like them. And I can figure out if I like you or not within the first few seconds of meeting you or seeing you. It's why you got to see that side of me. I can be the coldest, uncaring person on the planet if you get on my bad list. And I mean ice cold...

Then if I want to, I can change your mind about me. muahahah...

^ INTX - after more J spring/summer I again succumb to my lovely P-autumn-slumber.
I can relate to your description. though I'm mostly too lazy to express my personality so ~80% people see me as "that dull girl who never talk".

Maybe not disliked, but definately overlooked and ignored the most. Ive only met one INTP female (at least one that I was certain was an INTP). They were a teacher I had in college for psychology.

I got along with her alright, but she was a bit too serious too often for my liking. (Im ENTP) She was actually quite self-aware of how she is and would often say things like, I know I seem unfeeling, but Im actually feeling X. She likely did this because the class was about 99% Feelers. It was a class specifically designed for developmental child psychology.

(Im ENTP) She was actually quite self-aware of how she is and would often say things like, I know I seem unfeeling, but Im actually feeling X. She likely did this because the class was about 99% Feelers. It was a class specifically designed for developmental child psychology.
That's good she was aware enough and articulate enough to do that.

it can be frustrating -- we have to translate our feelings into ideas and relay them that way because often having an observable spontaneous feeling response isn't a natural thing. (It can happen, sure, although it's usually the extreme responses -- fury, excitement, or hilarity -- and if it's one of the first two, usually it gets reined in really fast. I think hilarity is the one emotion I usually don't restrain or I restrain the least.... esp if I've been drinking, lolz. I kinda go nuts in the laughter area.)

Anyway, just saying... while I like having control over my emotions and only letting out what seems to be consistent with my actual thoughts, at the same time it can be frustrating at how easy emotional display can be for others in situations I wish I was more emotional in. I gave a presentation for recording at work this week and I had to actually add inflection to my voice .... it's exhausting, and I can't do it without conscious effort; meanwhile, one of the other women (very very F, she frustrates me with her lack of rationality sometimes) can express her emotional state in visage and inflection without any effort at all.

Yeah my brother is an INTP and trying to figure out what he is feeling is impossible. I sort of have to play a guessing game. I swear he doesnt even seem to know exactly how he feels half the time! Laughing for him -like you- is probably the only emotion he will show, but it is still quite restrained.

The INTP teacher I had seemed to be quite reserved in all emotions though. The lack of humour is what made me say a bit too serious for my liking. Thats not to say she never made jokes or laughed. I think it was because of her first few jokes she tried to make. They WERE funny (to me), but the delivery to a bunch of Fs left blank stares, so that was the end of that. Could also just be the role of teacher isnt one where it is really proper to be joking often?

It's contextual, and lots of things feed into it. For example:

1. Tone of the school.
2. Grade level (elementary? middle? high? university? grad school?)
3. The subject matter.
4. Personality of the teacher.
5. The focus of the students.

For example, if the students can't handle the humor (either by getting offended OR by taking advantage of the joking to derail the class all the time), the teacher might have to rein it in.

And a teacher who feels they can't teach effectively if they are too relaxed (because they lose control of the class or aren't taken seriously) might be more straight-laced. Authorities (including teachers who have to run the class) lead according to their personality style and how they feel most comfortable.

I had an advanced analyst course, in contrast, so it's to working professionals from 20-70 years of age, and due to the subject matter and the teacher's personality, he was very informal and would make a lot of jokes. In fact, he dropped a few swear bombs casually without blinking an eye -- I don't care, I can swear a blue streak when I want to outside of work, but it caught me way off-guard and I was like, "Did I actually just hear him say shit while teaching?" He might have even dropped the F-bomb once, I'm not sure.... It was pretty funny because it made me realize that in a professional workplace, there are certain expectations so you notice when someone crosses them. But my point is that the teacher was comfortable teaching that way, so... that's what he did (I think he said he was a low-key ENFP), but other teaching personalities wouldn't be caught dead doing that.


You will see a range of behavior within types, though. I have a pretty strong N component and so I'm looser in approach and tend to be more casually engaging. A strong Judging function without a strong Perceiving function to balance it will be more focused on the task, with less "play" space.

Alas ... Extroverted Feelers may be the best at expressing and precious little aside from histrionic drivel TO express;
meanwhile Introverted Intuitives may have a depth of thought and/or feeling yet have precious little inclination or ability -- when so inclined -- to `share' with others either interPersonally or socially.

It's a damned good thing I was born in the Week of the Empath and have learned a variation on the Vulcan mind meld ... albeit while making contact with anatomical parts which can have me arrested in 48 states when used with all but slightly masochistic if not moderately ticklish intimates.
