Actually, I fit the description in almost every way except:
I am not good at all strategy games like Chess, I like Sci Fi, but I'm not obsessed with it unless its about time travel like Outlander,
I am not really nitpickey about grammer and facts.
But I LOVE to learn and grasp systems, I am technical and computer proficient for the most part, I love analyzing data and I just know things without knowing how I know them.
Once I get the details of a system in my long term memory its just really easy to fly through and get results, I'm faster than anyone else when deadlines loom. I actually like the pressure of a deadline, I don't get much done without them. I do not gender myself, equally male and female minded, just think everyone should be well rounded in everything.
I never stop learning, in fact I considered not stopping taking classes, but I don't love the classroom environment with lectures, I just love book learning, I'm very visual.
I work very well alone and I really concentrate and work well without any supervision. Good telework candidate.
Very trustworthy with even the most secret information, because I am a hermit and don't talk to anyone.
Not especially maternal, love my sons, but I was not a natural at the whole parenting thing in the emotional and social arena.
I took care of them and was very observant, the dr even said I was the most observant parent she'd ever known, because of how I kept records on every detail, I mean I really cared and really kept them fed, clean, and safe.
But the emotional thing, I guess I failed a bit there, because I don't express it or know how to do something, that I can't quite understand.
As a child I was ALWAYS shy, never liked crowds, but I loved architectural drawing, drawing, science and anatomy, botany, geology, latin plant names, collecting, hopscotch, marbles, story writing, photography.

Now I also fit some ISTP traits, I learned machine and wood shop tools at age 14 and 15, and loved working with my hands and arms. That meant, canoeing, massage, climbing, rock climbing, tree climbing, understanding how things work, liked taking old alarm clocks apart and putting them back together at an age of 8.

I also fit some INFP traits, idealist, loved healing, metaphysical, reiki, accupressure, swedish massage, any of the older oriental ways and teachings. Sensitive to energy, loved nature and animals, etc.
The ISTJ traits just come from being really quick to see a pattern in data and an ability to organize it so its at my fingertips instantly if I needed it at work.

I am pretty wide open to learning everything, INTPs love choices and never having to chose just one, because the world is not fixed, it is fluid and very changeable and is never the same twice. Heaven is simple, its about openness and learning and loving and perfecting. I hardly ever make judgements except when I have to do it for a living.

Can be a bit of misanthrope because I am aware of how different my ideals are from others. I don't fit in, but I'm glad I don't. I don't mope around, I may have sad look in my eyes, but thats not what I feel.
Its about creating a very good relationship with yourself and spirit, if you are not like everyone else, and I am different, so maybe its existential blues, but its not a sad feeling I don't think.
I'm too self sufficient for my own good, and LOVE independance. I may miss being around humans from time to time, but mostly ok with hermiting.

Systems I've met: MBTI, Astrology, Geology, Botany, Biology, Anatomy, Computer programming, Electronics, Components, Blue print making, House building basics, use of some math and tools in woodshop,
Cooking, Canning, Baking, Art History, Inspecting and Rejecting to a standard, Accounting, Finance, Government, Earth and Planets, Politics, Brain Waves, World Religions,

As a teenager, could have been called a bit spacey. I was slightly more bold and extroverted in my home state of California because the culture is my free spirited mindset there, and I had friends and family there.
Completely hermit like for the past 30 years. 95% introverted, 60% Intuitive, 60% Thinkerr,95% Perceiver, if I judge it might be inner criticism of myself, I try to talk that critic off the roof and put it in its place.

I was just kidding.(not)
Its nice stuff. Why esoteric stuff interest you though?

I get misanthropic when around people.
I feel OK when alone. But where ever I go, I am reminded there are people.
I always wondered why I hate working.
I actually like to work.
I just realized that I have strong aversion to people stuff in general and sometimes in particular.
I realized I hate working with people, and most of my life I dread everything like that.
Its I suppose main reason I procrastinate so much.
The idea of working with people again. EH just kills my motivation to live.
Its like whatever I do leads to more people in some shape and form.

(Ti)(Ne)

INTP are very conscious to the logic of systems.

(Fi)(Se)

INTP are unconscious to what is personal to them and emotion behind the senses.

-

INTP often are confused that music has emotion or whether aesthetics have emotional tone.

But in logic, systems are parts that can effect each other. Maths.
And Ti has an advantage because all formations must be laid out.
And Ne is every formation possible.

Te has a goal where all converge. It has all things revolved around it, all contingencies.
Ni is the meaning behind the goal, why have a goal? what is its importance?

(Ne)(Te) - all things all goals and all ways to do them. (all plans)
(Ne)(Ti) - all systems, all mechanisms, all arrangements. (all maths)

-

(Si)(Fe) - INTP absorb everything into the self, are very charitable share many things together, and want to be unified in the community. Friendly/neutral.

While I have interested in programming and math, I'm not nearly as good to the degree that it justify taking a degree in STEM, I major in Law instead and wanna be a lawyer. It's the most pallatable of all Laegal Proffesion for me I can tolerate Bureaucracy on a temporary base, Id rather shoot myself than work as a Government Employee.

I enjoy architectural strcuture that is Complex but structured in a logical manner, and I do enjoy smoking since I think the short-term benefit outweighs the cost, I've never taken any drugs, but I've drunk a beer once. My biggest vice (for physical health) is definitely smoking.

Based on my limited leadership experience, running a team is a chore if you don't any added benefit other than ego-stroking, I'd consider running a business if the financial benefit is proportionally high.

The worst part of being in a team project is picking up after freeloaders, and I won't engage in it unless its absolutely necesseary.

I don't mind arguing against teachers and classmate in front of a class if their explanation is illogical, most my classmate don't like when I do this.
I think I actually don't mind crowd in the sense not that I like them but I can sort of tolerate their existance since it doesn't bother me emotionally just that I con't have the freedom to be more self-reflective and just think for myself, I NEED alone time, but this is why I'm more productive when I'm working with the present of other people, their presence sort of decrease my ability to indulge in day-dreaming I'm forced to do the task at hand.

I used to be an extremely shy kid, but at about high-school I sort of grow out of it and now normal atitude toward other people is IDGAF about their presence and opinion, as long is there's no exceptional factors at play.

My ability to feel empathy is sort of.. artificial in a sense, I care about other people's emotion when they're shown at me, but I can't 'get' their emotion giving any hints or the person isn't near my proximity. its like an passive sonar, if there's nothing moving, you can't detect it.

I have a hard time making commitments, because I sometimes take to long to ponder what factors are valuable, like is learning the piano worth more than getting an addictional line of experience in your CV?. But the method I use to break this cycle is know that making the wrong descision is usually more valuable then not making a descision at all since you gain atleast some knowledge.

I Sort of fantasize and entertain the idea of being a hermit, living in the appalachian mountain with nothing but generator, and a rifle. But this hypothetical situation is only realistic when I'm in the position that I've lost hope in humanity and have devolve to be a serial killer or a Radical Libertarian Terorrist, which is not the case yet, to a certain degree bouncing your thought on other people is healthy.​

I like working with people who are as interested as me in intellectual work. If it's physical, I just want to get it done as fast as possible and not be bothered by anyone.

I share a lot of this except the voodo spiritual in touch with the inner self infp stuff. Delving into one's emotions are a waste of time.

Me too! But then a reincarnated soul is not constrained to place and time. Souls are relative to each other the same soul. In other words, everyone around you is you either forgotten or yet lived. So hello myself.

Since Einstein was born in 1879, I think that makes you 143 years old!

I live alone... I prefer to be alone... I get energized by being alone.
For projects, I sometimes envision working with other people, but then when I think about my role, I do pretty much everything.
I'm a philosophical guy, a deep thinker, and a sci major. My social skills are lacking, which only bothers me in the sense that it makes it more difficult to find other like-minded peoples IRL and a potential spouse.
I can tell I'm not a J-type because my desk is a mess and it doesn't really bother me.
I'm an N-type because I prefer to guess where things are and I'm terrible at finding them when they are out of place. I pick up on subtleties and factual inconsistencies rather than reading the messages someone is trying to send me in social settings.
Pretty sure I'm INTP.

I’d say about a 66% hitrate with non-geographical statistics there.

But then again, I’m a bit more of an ENTP than INTP these days. They’re similar enough though that I don’t think the distinction is that important.

Was never interested in drugs or drinking.

Never learned to play an instrument.

Am ok-ish at strategy games like chess. I prefer unsolved / less rigid games. (I know chess isn’t solved, but with the amount of known ‘lines’ it essentially is with all the studying you could do).

I’m not a huge fan of mastery in general, anything more that 75% competence really starts to bore me.

Humour and jokes I find acceptable even if it doesn’t follow the logic or ‘rules’ behind it. Funny is funny, the more ridiculous the better.

Easier to cite what doesn't fit:
  1. Smoking and drinking. Maybe because abuse of both was very high in my family, I can't touch them. Have tried on some occasions.
  2. Not Singaporean or Australian.

I don't know. Not micromanaging might be the opposite of my style. It depends on the individual or group one might be managing. If they're smart enough to do it without the micro, then by all means its less work. But if no-ones taking the leadership position I could easily start managing without a second thought about it and in a harsh manner. I would be quick to reprimand an error for the protection of the group. Nitpicking would actually be desirable for me.
I think speaking up in a full classroom might find itself rather difficult. Its challenging to commit because i'm always thinking about holes in my story that may not match up properly.
I'd likely focus on English and grammatical correctness over science. It's not that I don't appreciate science, but that i'd rather explore in curiosity over the universe (via abstraction) than a harder set science. But not to the extent I'd remain unsophisticated, as logic is vital. It's attempting to remain in balance.
Selecting one outfit and wearing it consistently is accurate. Its more comfortable and there's no reason to impress people as I hate them anyways. If I was to change it up it would be to manipulate someone into seeing me a certain way.
Substance abuse accurate. There's little like experimenting with altered states of consciousness to grasp a better understanding of yourself, your environment and awareness. And sometimes just kick back to settle the overthinking ones brain is commencing. But it is also the act of defiance for a quick thrill. Like a Fuck you to the system for trying to micromanage my existence which is hardly a threat to anyone, just fuck off and let me live.
"This is why they are one of the most likely personality groups to question religion and spirituality, but they aren’t willing to discount it either. Unless something is absolute, then it can be virtually anything."
Highly precise. Couldn't agree more.

It's hard to answer questions like this for a mindset that recognizes from the outset everything real can't stop changing, evolving no matter even for a kaleidoscopic, dynamic version of some internal mental model, philosophy, "being of the world", whatever.

I remember on an older INTP chat forum where someone claimed to be sharing what (at the time) an AI program defined as the image of a cat. It was laughable yet interesting because it at best could be regarded as a painting by a noted Picasso-style artist having gotten the work order confused & painted the cat being asked for instead as Pollock might have under the effects of LSD -- yet there were still numerous cat ears & eyes at different stages of a cat's life & from different viewpoints that could be inferred within. I mean, while there was something cat-ish to argue about there it nevertheless was pretty much as useful as a kindergarder's drawing of a cat. Fun at best but not useful for say a veterinarian or even a zoo employee.

Maybe the point of this ramble is that in trying to gather ALL the data, I find that when it comes to making something from it all there's a lot of disappointment, a lacking despite even the best of tribute. I mean, for me just Descartes' contribution in offering algebraic expressions a means w/which to generate images is downright STAGGERING. It permitted geniuses such as Immanuel Kant inspiration to present intellectually challenging ethical dilemmas for study nevermind say engineers the ability to predict with useful accuracy how much construction material was needed for a job. But our best tributes remain only part of the "story" of reality despite their usefulness & ability to inspire.

It's never enough. I can't be satiated.

One of my favorite movies of all time has a line: "You gotta set your motherfucker to receive!". It was in the movie's context not a command to others but a subliminal command to the one speaking it -- a seeming throwaway line that instead inked the title of the movie plot's very next chapter.

To me, that's the title for every chapter of my life if I ever wrote a book about it...

think things way more deeply and longer than others

alot of people just operate on surface level, they dont try to delve into how things acutally work
