Take a look at all the MBTI types and their dominant to inferior functions:

INTP - Ti, Ne, Si, Fe
INFP - Fi, Ne, Si, Te
ISTP - Ti, Se, Ni, Fe
ISFP - Fi, Se, Ni, Te
ENTP - Ne, Ti, Fe. Si
ENFP - Ne, Fi, Te, Si
ESTP - Se, Ti, Fe, Ni
ESFP - Se, Fi, Te, Ni

INTJ - Ni, Te, Fi, Se
INFJ - Ni, Fe, Ti, Se
ISTJ - Si, Te, Fi, Ne
ISFJ - Si, Fe, Ti, Ne
ENTJ - Te, Ni, Se, Fi
ENFJ - Fe, Ni, Se, Ti
ESTJ - Te, Si, Ne, Fi
ESFJ - Fe, Si, Ne, Ti

Notice that all P types have either introverted Thinking (Ti) or introverted Feeling (Fi) as either dominant or secondary functions; and all J types have either extraverted Thinking (Te) or extraverted Feeling (Fe) as either dominant or secondary functions. In short - only introversion/extraversion with respect to Thinking/Feeling is used to determine P or J.

So if you claim to be a perceiver, intuitive and introverted - then you can only be INTP or INFP. Both types have strong extraverted intuition and weak introverted sensing which makes them absent minded, out of focus and fascinated with the future more than the present.

Judging from your posts though, I think you are more likely to be INFP than INTP.
