The Creature: INTP

When I answered the questions for The Creature, I asnswered them based on how he acted, felt and spoke. After the results came through, he classifies as an INTP, Introvert(88%) iNtuitive(3%) Thinking(57%) Perceiving(12%). I put myself in his shoes and was able to somewhat empathize as I too know what its like to be an outcast from groups of people who don’t understand me. Whenever he got curious, and tried to explore villages, he was always driven away by his hideous appearance. The more he was chased away, the more he became to hate people and especially for Victor for just abandoning him and giving him a crappy life because he’s so hideous and cant fit in anywhere.


INTPs tend to be pensive and analytical. In the book, The Creature often tends to observe the humans and learns how to read, write and speak.  They tend to correct others or be strongly tempted to in order to make themselves looks smarter. In the book, the Creature insists that Victor is evil and irresponsible. The creature tries to prove that Victor is wrong for the way he neglected him.

Career Choices

INTPs find themselves excelling extremely well in such careers like; research and analytical departments such as science labs, computer sciences or technological factories. The Creature  spends a lot of time studying humans in order to learn from them. The Creature would work well in a laboratory environment as he devoted a lot of time studying the humans. INTPs will often make a great living at academic level jobs, thanks to their originality and their strong and versatile way of thinking.

Learning Style

INTPs often find a great deal of interest in subjects driven by the search for the answer to the question; “How is this structured”? The more in-depth and multi-layered the answer they receive during the learning process, the greater their interest in the topic will grow and they will develop a greater desire to figure it out. they have much enjoyment in figuring out how advanced systems work. In the book, the creature tries to learn to read, write and speak. This is a hard thing to master and The Creature thoroughly enjoys it. INTPs easily grasp learning material when it is presented in a theoretical form and new data flows more easily from that given before. The more The Creature learned, the easier it got.

Communication Skills

When communicating, INTPs are respectful, well thought our and broad, but at times a bit barren. They may appear lacking warmness and sincerity. In the book, The Creature is very dominant and speaks down to Victor for neglecting him. While interacting with people of the same type, they have deep discussions about their opinions and tend to debate their views. INTPs often keep their distance  from trivial acquaintanceships and keep to a small social circle of colleagues and those of the same mindset.
