Introvert iNtuitive Thinker Perceiver
INTPs are of the NT or rational temperament and as such they’re going to be independent thinkers who tend to challenge the status quo.
INTPs are logical and creative and often have a colorful sense of humor.
As musicians they tend to be experimental and as they develop they often become capable of creating music that’s very complex and layered.
Many are avid learners and continually push themselves to new levels.
They usually take their craft seriously and can be extreme perfectionists.
They often alternate between novelty and familiarity. They enjoy and learn from new experiences, though they tend to favor comfort and familiarity when they’re low on energy.
