The reason ESTP may be commonly associated with psychopathy could be due to their thinking and analytical nature.

INFP may be viewed as lazy. However, this is not true in the basic sense. Many are highly intelligent but require the right stimulation. It’s not that they can’t put a lot of energy and hard work into something. Some INFPs are amazingly talented, passionate people. They can put anything into their craft or their purpose. It’s just that INFPs are not motivated by money or success in the traditional sense. INFPs are flexible and free-spirited.

INTJs are often the least sociable, more so than INTPs. INTJs may come across as intimidating. INTJs are famous for their “death stares” and their if looks could kill stares.

Which MBTI types procrastinate the most?
INTJs tend to procrastinate the most since they often have creative minds which don’t always know when to turn off. Since their minds are always thinking, it may hinder their ability to find time to put their ideas into motion. INFJs and INTJs are guilty of this since they get their biggest thrills from envisioning future possibilities and taking apart abstract concepts. However, INFJs are known to put their desires and thoughts into action since they love to see their ideas in abstract form. There’s just one problem; the INFJ often hates their own work since it never measures up to their insanely unrealistic expectations. We are often perfectionists to our own detriment
