  2. INTP - focus on work, or other activities

    hi, i have read some posts / articles that discuss that due to the complexities of relationships, and nature of the working world, INTPs in general end up following their own path or become less focused on their work in the formal sense. do you agree, have others done this, and if so how? i...

  9. Work - needless overthinking??

    hi all, not sure if its an INTP trait, but i wanted to check in if it is. I find that i can obsess at times about work, even when fundamentally it doesnt interest me that much. so i will wake in the middle of the night by a work thought, or when i wake in the morning its on my brain first...
