INTP

Who are you?

Have you ever taken the Myers Briggs test?  You should.  It's quite revealing...only if you are honest.  Don't get me wrong.  I know who I am.  I know what I am.  But now I have a name and I can....define it?  

I am an INTP (introversion, intuition, thinking, perceiving). And yeah, that's me.  Up and down.  Left and right.  Seriously, if you want to know the type of person I am...for over 20 years, I've taken this test and I always end up the same.

So, who am I?
according to https://www.16personalities.com/intp-personality: 

The INTP personality type is fairly rare, making up only three percent of the population, which is definitely a good thing for them, as there's nothing they'd be more unhappy about than being "common". INTPs pride themselves on their inventiveness and creativity, their unique perspective and vigorous intellect. Usually known as the philosopher, the architect, or the dreamy professor, INTPs have been responsible for many scientific discoveries throughout history.

Yep..you got me!

Wiki says:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTP

INTP (introversion, intuition, thinking, perceiving) is an abbreviation used in the publications of the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to refer to one of the MBTI's 16personality types.[1] The MBTI assessment was developed from the work of prominent psychiatrist Carl G. Jung in his book Psychological Types. Jung proposed a psychological typology based on the theories of cognitive functions that he developed through his clinical observations. From Jung's work, others developed psychological typologies. Jungianpersonality assessments include the MBTI assessment, developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs, and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS), developed byDavid Keirsey.
INTPs are marked by a quiet, stoic, modest, and aloof exterior that masks strong creativity and enthusiasm for novel possibilities. Their weaknesses include poor organization, insensitivity to social niceties, and a tendency to get lost in abstractions. Keirsey referred to INTPs as Architects, one of the four types belonging to the temperament he called theRationals. INTPs are relatively rare, accounting for 1–5% of the U.S. population.[2][3][4]

Basically...I'm weird.
