How many of you ISTP's do blue collar jobs or are training for a career in a blue collar job?
Hey, you're setting a bad example for the rest of us. Quit working and start having fun ^_~A better question might be, what proportion of blue-collar workers do you think are ISTPs? A lot of them are probably ISxJs, in my opinion, but I don't know really. I think blue-collar work is very demanding in that you have to get up early every morning, and that counts me out.
I'd pick blue-collar work over office work any day, but my preference is no work at all.
Hey, I just posted one thread that asked if it was possible to find an ISTP whom wasn't a very physical person. Not a single person responded that they weren't a physical person. So I'm kind of correlating the threads. Hell, I have one ISTP friend whom is very physical, but yet he is also majoring in Information Technology.Good to know that other types know us better than we do.
I'm 17 and i work at a software company doing QA testing. I have 3 ISTP friends who are all really good at web development and server level networking. So... Not really sure what you define as blue collar... but, don't forget that we're techies too. roud:
Duney, I like your style. Territorial, misanthropic and ornery. You remind me of Oscar The Grouch. (Do you think he was ISTP?)god at first I was ok with other types posting here now with the rash of dumbass topics I'm starting to get pissed...They are running off other ISTPs that don't want to be bothered with there crap...we are hermits to begin with why would you do this?
Jeez aren't we a sensitive bunch?
Personally I consider IT+ very hands on and almost blue collar, considering it is a trade after all. I took that in high school, and I enjoy working with computers greatly. But I guess I will be a "blue collar" worker, I plan on attending beauty college in January. I want to become a professional make up artist. My boyfriend whom I am almost sure of that he is a ESTP is going to be an auto mechanic. I think it just depends on the SP, but in nature we are all very physical. ;D
