I feel like that is one of the greatest defining characteristics that distinguish INTj and INTp. There are others to be sure but that is the most noticeable. INTj are ultimately pragmatic and that means putting their ideals into practice.
Funny you should mention the education system; I feel the same way. I'm working on it. Might be a while. Still hammering out the details.
Seriously though, our current educational system was established in fascist Prussia, it's worked well for the industrial age but today we are in a post-industrial age and our education system is antiquated and ill-equipped to provide the skills necessary to thrive in a society that is changing at a far more rapid pace than ever before.

Some years ago, our chief at the time apparently became fascinated with the Myers-Briggs tests and suggested that we department members take same. It was being offered by some group here at the university.
I had no experience with the thing so I did some research, turning to my first go-to source, the Skeptic's Dictionary site.
The article was not complementary.
In essence, it compared Myers-Briggs to astrology. The descriptions given for the various "personality types" are so broadly written and vague that nearly anyone can read anything he/she likes into each reading.
(for the record, astrology is psuedoscientific nonsense)
I was not impressed, and sent a copy of the article to the chief. Nothing more was said.

I'm not taking this again, but I've always gotten INFP.
edit: I just read the description on personalitypage.com. Holy crap that is 100% me. Except for this:

I'm an INTP, but my girlfriend is an INFJ. This causes a lot of strife between us, because when she expects to be emotionally comforted I'm trying to analyze the situation, which just makes her feel like I don't care about her feelings, sometimes. But somehow our opposite natures work well together, once we learn to deal with situations like that. We compliment each other very well. Her emotion in substitute for my purely analytical outlook, and my analyzation in substitute for her emotional based conclusions. Were a pretty unbeatable team.
