    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Greetings, fellow ISTP citizens. So recently, after taking the MBTI test several times, it is apparent that I am one of you guys, so howdy howdy :perc2: First post btw! So, to cut to the chase, I'm in my fourth year of college, with one year left to graduate. I was originally in the business...

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hello, first time poster here. I'm 23 and in my first semester of grad school, doing a master's degree in biomedical science. At first I thought it was an ideal career path, since I get to work alone and do lots of hands-on experiments. But I hate it. I hate the uncertainty and repetitiveness...

  7. [ISTP] Could you be a nurse?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    So I was thinking about what I could change my career to. Ever since I was a child nursing always appealed to me but I never pursued it.

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    If you're in business for yourself, I'm curious what type of work you do? I admire that level of independence and freedom. I hope to have that some day. A bit aside, I watched an interesting guy on YouTube. He bounced around doing odd jobs until he found his niche making premium knives...

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I just don't like school. It's not that I can't do the work because I can, it's just that I can't do it on my own time.
