  1. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I'm a researcher who studies patterns across type. I need ISTPs badly to answer a few questions. It does not take long!!! Please, message me here or respond to this thread and I will. But I need you guys! <3
  2. Myers Briggs Forum
    this may seem like a silly question, but I'm currently trying to type a character. More specifically, I have typed this character as an ISFP, but because there is very little information about him available at the moment, this typing is subject to change. To get on with it - I keep getting...
  3. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I haven't been out of the house all too much recently, I haven't also gone out and done something high energy for a long time, and what I've noticed happening is I've been seeking more Se things a lot, I play games and do things a lot more than sitting around and thinking like I usually do, I...
  4. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Hello, I'm trying to understand ISTPs more. Could you please tell me exactly what you would do and what you would think in this situation (the more detailed the better)? "Let's say you're in a room with a guy who claims he has got super powers (telekinesis). Then he moves a mug on a table in...
  5. Myers Briggs Forum
    I know a lot INTPs and INTJs are very often described as "unemotional" or "unfeeling" and I thought it couldn't possibly be just this type that gets flack for this. I would think it's a side effect of thinking-preferred. Or maybe its a combination of introverted- and thinking-preferred. (I have...

    I want to know what you ISTPs find funny, who are your favourite comedians, TV shows, etc...
  7. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I had a really good ISTP friend who hated discussing anything at length or philosophizing. He thought it was stupid and believed things were in reality far more simple than I believed them to be. Do ISTPs find INTPs' desire to analyze and debate annoying? I am somewhat scarred by the...
  8. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Welp, being the social ninja that some istps are at times..I think I've pegged my college adviser as a ISTP...now i just need to think of a way to get her to know there are like minded ppl out there..but she avoids others....as a ISTP myself I'm still a little stumped...hrm...is there anyway for...

    Ok, I'm back (cuz I'm almost done with my deck -- woot! barbecue coming up soon!) anyway, this is something that came up recently and I was struggling to figure out why i never EVER take over the counter pain meds. It's not because I don't like pills or painkillers (hello childbirth, I begged...
  10. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I'm curious about ISTPs and social life. I know an ISTP who prefers to be alone most of the time. When we don't hang out, he's alone and fine w/ that. He says he can go several months without seeing friends. He's totally content watching movies alone all weekend and weeknights. He might go out...
  11. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Okay, so there has been this ISTP guy who has been interested in me for the pass few months. He would always follow me around/hang out real close to me, stare at me, and make real awkward conversations with me. It was real obvious he liked me, everyone around us could tell as well. When I first...

    Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, Perceiving - ISTPs represent approximately 6% of the population. ISTPs are good at logical analysis and like to use it on practical concerns. They...
  13. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    This is hilarious. I have known this guy for almost 20 years, and we've always been buddies. We hung out together constantly when we were young. He recently took the MBTI test for some class, and he came out as ISTP! and I never had a clue! So this is what happened and it all finally makes...
  14. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Currently, I'm dating a girl who, I'm fairly certain, is an ISTP. Just like I've read around here, she loathes small talk. She refuses to respond to my seemingly pointless texts, asking her how her day's gone, what's been going on lately, etc. Being an ENFP (or me... either or), I love to know...
  15. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    Or is it just me? All my life I've been inexplicably drawn to water. I can't help it. My ideal way of spending my time?
  16. NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers
    For some reason, there seem to be more NFs posting on the ISTP sub forum than ISTPs (must be the free coffee :tongue:) but anyway, the term "emotional retard" seems to pop up a bit, and I remember a two-liner I had with a friend recently: So yeah... do we come across as emotional retards?:sad:

    ive seen famous people threadz for some many other types...but i dont see one for u guys ill start it....wait...can istp become famous?
  18. ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    I get confused because ISTP seems to be easy to mistype. We often mistake ourselves for NTs early on and yet five minutes with an NT will show we're not. We know the stereotype of "well S types think only in the moment so if you think for the future you must be an N" even though most ADD kids...

    And you're not allowed to respond with anything remotely connected to personality typing.
  20. ISTP Articles
    ISTP Estimated to be between 4 and 7 percent of the American population Quiet, reserved, and serious, ISTPs are down-to-earth, logical people. They tend to be cool observers and rarely provide even a glimpse of what is going on inside them. ISTPs are usually cautious and down-to-earth. They...
