    What types are an ISTP likely to 'click' with?

    Yep, it's another one of these threads.

    I'm kind of curious to find out how we percieve other types. What types of people are you more/less likely to 'click' with? (both off of the bat and over a longer time period).

    If you aren't an ISTP, what do you honestly think of us as people? Was this the perception you had of them when you first met?

    Kthx.

    For the record...

    I find talking to XNFX girls really hard - it's like they're talking 'girl' and I'm talking 'socially awkward outcast'. Similarly, when talking to other XSTX (esp. ESTP) girls I 'connect' with them easily (why oh why aren't there more of you? >.<)

    Actually, I swear that I get on 100x better with males than I do females regardless of their type. I just feel so much more at ease around guys.

    Strong E types piss me off. They either grab the conversation by the horns and don't listen to a word I say or they set my inbuilt 'bullshit detector' ringing. I can become really outgoing when talking to an introvert, but stick me in front of a EXXX I transform into a shy mess who doesn't have any idea what to say.

    ENXX... ugh. I have a ENFP friend where the conversation is somewhat forced and there are notable periods where neither of us say anything. Idk, people say ENFX types are the ideal match for ISTPs, but I can never seem to hit it off with them. I blame it on T/F clashing.

    you just sparked a realization for me....

    i like talking to XSTX or XNTX women, and XNFX or XSFX men.

    I don't agree ENFP are the ideal match for ISTP, so this is something we DEF agree with. If anything we're from completely different planets. We don't share even 1 function. I blame the clashing on S/N, not F/T. This is why you have notable periods where neither of you say anything. Absolutely nothing in common, nothing. I only know 1 ISTP IRL, i would never hang out with this person alone. We would sit there like 2 mutes. Even when there is a group, most of the time someone is spending it explaining all the nitty gritty details in order for her to keep up. And that person is never moi.

    You mean you know one person you THINK is an ISTP, but since you never talk, there's no way you know her well enough to actually determine her type. and since you dont know ANY confirmed ISTPs, you're not exactly an expert on ISTPs to begin with.

    just saying.

    I only know 1 ISTP IRL. ( copied from my post )

    I think. What posting did you read. I said i KNOW, not think. And yes i do know her type, she confirmed it in conversation while sitting with other friends. I wasn't surprised or shocked. It just confirmed why we have nothing in common. During conversation, she kept saying " What do you mean" Lol. Her sister( INTP ) is a good friend of my husband. Thankfully she had the patients to keep explaining things. Everyone else just kept grinning or giving subtle eye rolls. Even her sister ( INTP) lost patients.

    I know two ISTPs IRL. I click with both of them. My ISTP co-worker and I get along great. And, we have bouts of conversations. We may go weeks with just hello/goodbye and then we may have a cycle where we have extended conversation daily for weeks. I enjoy talking with her and really enjoy her company. We don't always see eye to eye. But, the best part about it is ....if it makes sense to me, then I will embrace and accept her views and vice versa.

    And, the other ISTP well you already know the story on that one. Nevertheless, we do click and we have great conversations. Overall, I enjoy ISTPs very much. It seems you have a vast range of interests. I enjoy bantering with ISTPs the best. I admire your strength, determination, honesty, and independence. In my opinion, for the most part you guys keep it real. And, I know if I want complete, honest, and rational feedback, then I know to ask an ISTP, ISTJ, or another ENTJ.

    The bluntness and honesty of an ISTP is refreshing to me. It doesn't mean I always agree with what is being said. But, at least I feel confident in knowing where I stand with the ones I know IRL. And, SPs bring out the silliness and adventure in me unlike no one else can. Three cheers to ISTP and SPs in general...well maybe one cheer for ESFPs but that's another story.

    Yes. I totally get that! Actually, my reaction to ENFJs is very different between genders. Hm...

    Idk, if you ask ISTPs who they are compatible with ENFX pops up a lot.

    The ENFJs seem to say every type but ISTP.

    The ENFPs don't innately say, but mention the word ISTP and it will usually spark off a few heated posts.

    Yeah, you're right about the N/S thing. Thanks.

    Yeah... I would say the oscillating closeness is a feature of ISTP relationships. Sometimes I feel really, really happy to see you, other times you're just getting on my nerves.

    Also, sometimes I'm just flat out not in the mood to be social.

    I'm not sure about other ENTJs or NTs in general. But, I can definitely relate to what you said above and the feeling is mutual. ;D

    sounds like your acquaintance has very poorly developed Ni or isnt very intelligent.

    i've noticed a lot of gender differentials in the types i hang out with. i do love INTP males and ESFP females though. but mostly i like males with more feeling function and women with less.
