I am an INTP. I've known this for a while. But I just did a Google search and the first page that turned up really emphasized the point:

INTP Profile

A quote from it:

A major concern for INTPs is the haunting sense of impending failure. They spend considerable time second-guessing themselves. The open-endedness (from Perceiving) conjoined with the need for competence (NT) is expressed in a sense that one's conclusion may well be met by an equally plausible alternative solution, and that, after all, one may very well have overlooked some critical bit of data. An INTP arguing a point may very well be trying to convince himself as much as his opposition. In this way INTPs are markedly different from INTJs, who are much more confident in their competence and willing to act on their convictions.

I have friends who are INTJs, and this all fits to a T.

Really, almost everything on that page fits me to a T, except that I don't particularly like word games.
