INTP: language version

They probably know the most random vocab because they read/listen to stuff in that language that interests them and come across it naturally

What they find surprising is that BC of this, most people in their class regard them highly or as smart or a “know it all”, even if they don’t

Gets frustrated at not being able to reach a high level of a language early

Genuinely Enthused™ which confuses a lot of people who only take the language for professional purposes or because they had to pick one as an option

Learns quickly and naturally- probably doesn’t sit and learn vocab lists as that doesn’t enthuse them which makes them come across as dumb if they don’t know basic words even tho they know Extra words

Nervous when speaking to a native speaker even if they really really really want to test their language ability

Doesn’t like the long project modules eg writing essays on one film in the target language

Really wants to go to the target language’s country(ies) even tho ah!socialising

Wants to learn about culture too, may even have a special interest area like foods
