How many of you ISTP's do blue collar jobs or are training for a career in a blue collar job?

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, you're setting a bad example for the rest of us. Quit working and start having fun ^_~

It seems like ISTP's are very physical people and like to work with their hands. It just seems like they would be most likely to do blue collar jobs.

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. :proud:

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.

I worked in construction for a summer and the man I carpooled with to work was an ISTP.

So they're there!

...But so are female ENFPs. Haha :laughing:

That brings up a good point.....A lot of ENFP's tend to be very physical as well.

You'll have to pardon us, the trollage was thick recently.

Blue collars jobs? No. Blue collar hobbies? Yes.

For example, I love turning wrenches on my own cars but, I dislike working on other people's cars and I'm pretty sure I'd hate doing it for a living. I'd much rather help someone with their computer problems and then go for a spirited drive.

I did construction work for a while. I was a mason tender. I would enjoy being the mason for a little while, but carrying rocks back and forth and mixing mud all day is not fun. Also was a landscaper for a long time. I loved that, but it doesn't go all year and doesn't pay much. I'm a teacher now, but contemplating my escape.

Any carpenters or woodworkers?

Duney, I like your style. Territorial, misanthropic and ornery. You remind me of Oscar The Grouch. (Do you think he was ISTP?)

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

Yeah... IT is a bad example of a non bluecolar job. >.>

Most of it is outsourced now anyways... I swear, untill i get to talk to onsite IT, i ussualy know more about what i'm talking about than the person on the other end of the call... I've even had to talk a guy in IT who barely spoke english on how to do his job to fix network settings for my office i had no control over.



As for physical... I'd rather relax. I'm really lazy, generaly speaking... But, don't get me wrong, when I AM physical, i go at it full force, and hold nothing back.
