Aloof vs. Curious

One of the differences between an INTJ and an INTP is that INTJs have an aloof disposition where they seem uninterested and unbothered by their surrounding environment. 

Despite this, they are actually processing and thinking about all the different things around them. 

On the other hand, the INTP has a curious and inquisitive side which makes them want to explore practically everything they see. They spend time thinking about different aspects of different scenarios.

Organized vs. Messy

The INTJ is typically organized and ensures their workspace is easily navigable. They are good at planning, management, and execution of ideas. 

On the other hand, the INTP is quite relaxed and laid-back. They are not very organized and cannot maintain a sense of order.

Shock vs Annoyance

When an INTP and INTJ have unpleasant experiences with people they react differently. The INTJ will typically be annoyed and say nothing with a cold demeanor as the only way of expressing their discomfort.

On the other hand, the INTP will mostly be shocked or surprised by the unpleasant thoughts and intentions of others. They tend to get flustered in such situations but cannot express their emotions with words properly.

Decisive vs Infinite

INTPs are particularly known for being unable to decide or respond to situations quickly. They have a habit of overthinking and second-guessing their choices. This leads them to sometimes not make a decision as well.

In contrast, INTJs logically and practically organize a solution to a problem and make a decision to which they stick and take responsibility for the consequences. They believe in their abilities enough to make them confident with whatever choice they make.

Self-praise vs self-deprecating

The INTJ is typically very confident and believes they are above average. They praise and affirm themselves for their choices, achievements, and their overall life. They are confident and proud of themselves and their abilities.

The INTP is self-deprecating. They put themselves down and are always doubting their abilities or strengths but can easily accept when they are criticized.
