Rationals (NTs)

Rationals (iNtuitive Thinkers) are theory oriented. Seek to understand the principles on which the world and things in it work. Trust logic and reason. Skeptical and precise. Think in terms of differences, categories, definitions and structures. Focus on strategies and designs that achieve long-range goals and lead to progress. Want competence through knowledge.
