  1. Why do most people think that Bruce Lee was an ISTP? He was obviously an iNtuitive.

    Guess the type
    How can people say that Bruce Lee was an ISTP? I think that he was an INTP or INTJ. I'm actually going with INTJ. Bruce Lee had a degree in philosophy, and that is a very abstract subject, I don't know too many sensors into philosophy. Also he used a lot of metaphors and analogies as well, which...

  4. ISTJ or ISTP?

    What's my personality type?
    I know for a fact I'm introverted and thinking. I've always tested that way. I used to test more N (a loose one), but have become more S and have stayed an S taking the tests more recently.
