Just wondering what other ISTP and ESTP are doing career wise! The hubby is trying to figure out what to do with his life!


The Perseus system allocates ISXP as the PIG. His first choice of career is to join the Police Force. XSTP first career choice is the Police Force as well. But not if he marries an INFJ because it makes the social life awkward.

Alternatives are Firefighter, Criminal (socially awkward), Management Consultant for a brewerer or pub chain or property developers, Insurance Broker.


ESTP can be Bob the Builder/Small Property Developer, or Car Retailer

ISTP is the Carpenter and the Mechanic.

Poker player is a real choice. Might get stitched up by a Lizard ENTP in this competitive game.

Retail proprietor could be a long term goal.

I am not sure of hubby's best fit type. An ESTP will have natural skills and abilities not necessarily that the average ISTP can do. Either way it’s natural for SPs in general to gain experience as they get older so their interests will continue to expand. I would be careful in perceiving that a particular type will have the same interests. Each person is different. With that said, maybe this chapter from Charles R. Martin’s, “Looking at Type and Careers " will be of benefit.

Doubt it. if an ISTP develops to the game properly the advantage is huge at reading situations. There is a huge difference in poker in reading a situation, and then executing a bluff (having the stones to do it because the situation is there). You tend to flop a pair at hold 'em 32% of the time, when a player rakes in another 20% of the pots from reading the situation by betting and reraising with just A high because its the best hand on the turn, and also making players think they a have a different hand than they really do when playing position. Total domination takes place...then there's also the getting paid off when they do have a hand so players can "take a stand to the daring controlled manic at the table. That and well...ISTP is prob. the type of who's regard as the best poker player in the world right now.

I was thinking of a poker player in particular:

ISTP might be ahead on resolution. I do not know enough about poker to say*. I think in big games NP inductive leaps of iNtuition would win out over Resolution ST trait

* I am not sure that you analysis is detailed enough ? Depends on the order of bets ???

I can’t write too much, but Martin says, “ISTPs are most likely to find interesting and satisfying those careers that make use of their depth of concentration, their reliance of facts, their use of logic and analysis and their adaptability. ISTPs are found in a variety of careers, but are most often found in careers that require a tough-minded analytical and realistic approach. Many of these careers are related to building and production, while others involve providing direct delivery of technically-oriented services. Their quiet adaptability, realistic grounding, and their willingness to critically analyze the facts often draw them to careers where they can take a pragmatic approach to problem-solving.”

The ISTP is the only type that I know of where in her book “Gifts Differing”, Myers-Briggs makes a clear distinction between two types, the mechanical and non-mechanical. I have written extensively on other forums that this distinction can give the appearance more like Keirsey’s SP-ish type ISTP or Linda Berens’NT-ish type ISTP. But again the career should not make the person, and like any introverted type ISTPs are not immune to not getting the requisite amount of experience to make a definite decision. Besides along with the INTP, ISTPs are one of the top types that are generally unhappy with their jobs.

It's very hard to implement noticeable hyper-links on this forum, so I turned the font red to show that I am providing a reference to be clicked on.

Good link.

ISTP - INTP/INTJ

But if INTPs all led by Introverted Thinking, they would not have the NP style of

Fuzzy logic (whcih just means INTJs don't understand it)
Slow processing time

Explain this, I would adsorb the information, if you are beneficient ENFJ .... ???

Don't bet on a Bear to win

I was thinking of another poker player myself Phil Ivey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


SODA scan says INTP.

SODA scanning is a Perseus invention. This is telepathatic scanning at a basic level. It can fooled by masquerades and bluffs as in poker. The order of bets is important. But I am a chess player, working out the best way to cheat at chess!

Back in real life, the INTJ will come second.

Your going to base it solely off of one thing? He constantly needs to be doing something when he's in an uncomfortable position. When interviewing, something you can tell he doesn't enjoy he will be playing with his chips, and also when having to make a tough decision at the table. Look at his attire as well. Before the poker boom, he admitted to having over 80 sports jersey's in his closet. The fact he was drawn to gambling. ISTP's tend to gravitate to out of the box professions where they have more control. The fact that he got a fake id when he 18, so he could gamble in casino's where you had to be 21. ISTP is the criminal remember? What about the impulse purchase of his Mercedes, after saying that too much to pay for a car? After he test drove it, he immediately had to buy it. At the very least he's ISTP with a 15% S preference over N in my book.

You figure out a way to do that, and then make an app. for it on the iphone/ipod touch. I'll settle for a 1% cut. After that I'll work with you on a future idea's I have for apps I haven't seen yet.:wink:

Seems a bit like me. I get mistaken for an ISTP and this causes me quite a lot of distress and confusion right now. I am a PN. Perception comes ahead of INtuition. He may be the same.

PST are criminals.

Gambling at 18 in a 21+ casino is not being criminal? Did you not read what I wrote. Are you that dismissive/(or as 50 cent would say) illiterate you can't read between the lines? WTF??? Plus calling me an INXJ in another thread. I'm exiting this, my head is starting to hurt.
