Hello ISTP's! What is the highest level of education that you have completed as of right now? Advanced professional degrees (MD, JD, DO, etc.) are considered doctorate-level for the purposes of this poll.

If you're wondering what I intend to do with the results, check out my blog post here: MBTI Correlation Project - Blogs - PersonalityCafe

Tag me or quote me if you want to get my attention on this thread. If there's an option you would like to select, but isn't available, let me know and I'll enter your information manually if possible.

Thanks in advance for responding!

@Randroth Hopefully that bachelor in your poll is the correct as I'm BEng from European system, tho now I'm wondering if I should jump to university or stay in this level. Time will show.

Yep, that's a correct answer. It's equivalent to an American B.S. in engineering.

I believe A levels equate to Associates degree so that.

I have a PhD in Optical Science. I went for a very engineering focus, so I spent more time in practical design and implementation than theoretical analysis.

Hello again everyone. I wanted to thank those who've voted on this and contributed to the discussion so far. However, many people throughout the forum have noted that this poll doesn't take into account age or the current pursuit of a new diploma, degree, or certificate, and doesn't allow for non-traditional achievement such as vocational school. These issues had crossed my mind before, but I made some big assumptions and ended up ignoring the potential flaws. I've realized now that that was a big mistake that will render any data gathered from here useless. This poll will remain open for anyone who wishes to vote or discuss the issue; however, I will not be using this data for the project detailed in the OP and I will open a new poll on this subject at some point in the near future.

I usually say I've completed a 2 year college diploma, when really I just threw $300 at the school so I could ace the exams. And I'll do it again shortly.

Gotta love practical career choices.

An ISTP friend of mine recently passed a mark of life by earning a professional degree in optometry. He now has a girlfriend.

So...his highest level of relationship education is "girlfriend"? Gotcha.
