On the mbti, I’m an INTP; I’m also a 5w6, with a 5-1-3 tritype which puts me quite squarely in the “technical expert” archetype. Here’s a description:

5-1-3: exacting, methodical, organized and fairly self-righteous, these Fives have a compulsive need for logic and order in their environment. They are hard-working and more practical and pragmatic than other Fives, focusing on the efficiency and improvement of the systems that interest them. They also enjoy and expect receiving the deserved recognition for their efforts, considering their time and involvement very precious. This tritype is one of the most cool-headed, rigid and self-controlled.
typical subtypes: self-preserving, social, 5w6
similar tritypes: 5-3-1, 3-5-1, 1-5-3
flavours: exigent, methodical, formal and efficient

I’m taking all these with a pinch of salt, as descriptive rather prescriptive. But they are good guides. Sort of. I’m trying always to see how I differ.

Every other thing apart from my words, my thoughts, my feelings is just surface details. They really shouldn’t matter, although I know they probably would to some.
