    Keirsey's SP "Artisans"

    Keirsey’s SP “Artisans”
    David Keirsey explains the temperaments at great length, but his descriptions can get long-winded and confusing. His SP “Artisan” temperament can be summarized thus:

    Communication: Concrete
    You talk about people, things, and the general here and now.
    Implementation: Utilitarian
    You favor practicality and what works over the human aspect and social approval.

    You speak lightly and pleasantly.
    Referential: Indicative
    You refer to things in a very direct, basic, to-the-point manner.
    Syntactical: Descriptive
    You speak in concretely illustrative terms.
    Rhetorical: Heterodox
    You explain your views from a fresh, new perspective.

    Intellect: Tactical
    Your strength lies in optimizing your immediate environment; improvising.
    Directive Role: Operator (xSTP)
    Your goals tend to be expedient and project-oriented; you are more authoritative.
    Expressive Role: Promoter (ESTP)
    You are the ultimate persuader; advertising, politics – you name it.
    Reserved Role: Crafter (ISTP)
    You are equipment- and action-oriented, quietly mastering technique-related skills.
    Informative Role: Entertainer (xSFP)
    Your goals tend to be more creative and artistic; you are extremely spontaneous.
    Expressive Role: Performer (ESFP)
    You are more people-oriented in your improvisation; you shine when putting on a show.
    Reserved Role: Composer (ISFP)
    You are more of the artistic type, with a great eye for aesthetics and beauty.

    Education: Artcraft
    You prefer to learn about hands-on subjects: drawing, woodshop, etc.
    Preoccupation: Technique
    You focus on perfecting your method at certain things: playing an instrument, a sport, etc.
    Vocation: Equipment
    You are happiest when working with machines, instruments, and anything you can operate.

    Present: Hedonism
    When thinking about the moment, you feel that what is pleasurable is good.
    Future: Optimism
    You aren’t concerned with anything too far ahead and face each new moment with confidence.
    Past: Cynicism
    You tend not to find patterns in the past; you view life as risky and entirely a matter of chance.
    Place: Here
    You like to be at the center of things, in the midst of the action.
    Time: Now
    You always seize the day and feel there is no time like the present.

    Self-Esteem: Artistic

    Self-Respect: Audacious
    You respect yourself most when you and others see you as bold, daring, and adventurous.

    ISFP - The Artists

    I relate very strongly to Keirsey's SP temperament, particularly self-respect in Audacity, self-esteem in Artistry, and self-confidence in Adapting. Also yearning for Impact and prizing Generosity. Those are two of my main personal goals/values.

    It took me a while to admit I'm a Hedonist, though. :D
