How INTPs can irritate others
Each personality type can potentially irritate other people in their own particular way.
How INTPs might irritate others
The potential ways in which an INTP can irritate others include being too intellectual, finding too many flaws, and not accepting imperfect but 'good enough' solutions. You may not only maintain an independent stance, but also fail to take sufficient account of others' feelings, clinging to a principle at the expense of relationships and harmony. You may suggest ideas but then appear to change your mind, and leave others to worry about implementation once you have solved the problem intellectually.
How to improve relationships
You can overcome personality type differences by learning about your similarities and differences with other people. This leads to greater understanding, appreciation, and respect. Also, if you learn to adapt your style this will make you more influential and respected.
There is a comprehensive guide on how to do this in the book Influencing People Using Myers Briggs. This is available as an option when you complete the personality test.
