Stereotypical ISTPs= real life ISTJs
Stereotypical INFJs= real life INFPs

Most of the ISTPs I've met in real life are just like INTPs without the imagination, honestly.
Those must have been some quite shallow ISTPs then. It's very easy to classify ISTPs as INTPs without imagination based on all of the descriptions that get thrown around everywhere, but I'd say that that's far away from the truth. It's not that ISTPs lack the imagination, nothing like that. The "amount" of imagination is not a factor in this case, the "kind" is. ISTPs are stereotypically more practical in nature, while INTPs are more theoretical. You could argue that imagination is theoretical in and of itself, but I feel it would be a pretty weak argument.

Well, that's just it. They were more scientific and mathematical as opposed to being more spiritual and artistic like I am as an intuitive type, which is why I get along better with intuitive types.

Hi! An ENFP here, wondering bout ISTPs.

Whenever I look at ISTP memes, it always say they are "weapon specialists", "badass", "epic", "stare of doom", etc. I have also seen an mbti hunger games joke in which istps won, coz like.. . Why wouldnt they?

So wheber I read their characteristics, I don't understand why theyre portraid as THAT epic. I mean, yes of course, memes are jokes, but where did the epicness come from? My 3 istp friends doesnt seem epic o. O

Tnx!
we dont look epic , WE ARE EPIC !

Nah you're right. I know some ISTPs who are total losers. I honestly think MBTI means almost nothing. People are different.
I know one idiot ISTP, who always gets into trouble for his cheating at all possible tests. I know one INTP, who isn't dumb, but lower ability person than me, also he doesn't shave his ugly teen beard and often has bad smell (he was my best friend at one time, but we fighted too much, even physically). I truly want to laught, when stereotypes are perceived as truth and person imagines ITPs as badass people. Some of them truly are badasses, but it's rarity. All of them, that I have met weren't neither badass, nor cool people. Actual badass people, that I have seen had those types: ENTJ, ESTJ, ENTP, ESTP, ESFP, ISTP (remembered one lol).
