You know you're an ISTP when...

you think of something so funny you have to blurt it out, then because no one instantly responds appreciatively you beat yourself up, worry about who you've offended now and remind yourself you are truly alone in the universe, and to never say anything again.

Until the next killer line materialises

This is so damn true. I thought I was the only one having this. Good addition.

I lolled.
Usually I just get blind stares while they wonder if I was trying to be funny or if it was a serious comment (my expression doesn't really change), then they think it through and sometimes after a good few seconds, they might laugh, but usually, they just return to the blind stare they had before they started thinking.

I did that in front of an entire classroom once. The whole room fell silent; no one knew what to say or what planet they were on.

"Never say anything again" is really the best policy. I do my best to stick to it, but sometimes I fall off the wagon.

You are an ISTP when you


- if you have a car, boat, motorcycle: you WILL find out its top speed.
- You get excited when there is turbulence and in fact you hope that it will turn really bad.

I think my husband is ISTP. He has these hideous cabinets and benches in the garage made out of six or seven different random pieces of old furniture. Most of his screwdrivers are tossed into the drawer where I keep my clean dishrags and he has stolen and lost every last one of my purple tools I bought to deter him from stealing. He took these from the drawer below the dish rag drawer...

After reading more of these lists I wanted to add other things about my husband that might further qualify him :)

He owns a Harley motorcycle and a el diablo with a 305, he "fixes" them constantly and I suspect he makes things up so that he can get parts.

He takes things apart that other people are afraid to, including my laptop.

He sat our backyard on fire by playing hacky sack with a flaming gas can.

He has almost died twice, once by plunging his truck into a frozen canal, and the second time in a motorcycle wreck. After he second incident the hospital staff was amazed because he walked into the er just to get checked out....He rolled his bike going sixty and had three fairly serious injuries.


He often says things that no one else in the room understands and makes jokes that make no sense. They make him laugh loudly regardless how they are taken by others :)

People do in fact call him MacGyver.

Hahaha, these made my laugh. The accidents probably seem less serious from his point of view. Your first post made me think he could also be INTJ, because in that regard my older brother is more ISTP than I am at times with the taking things apart, but not so much making strange objects out of junk. Then I thought ENTP for making stupid crap, then you mentioned he tells jokes no one understands... usually if you can combine an ENTP with an INTJ and an INTP you'll have an ISTP.

All good observations they are all relevant. Why do ISTP blush? I have this since very early age. I have it when I am in 1to1 with people and when I see they stare at me I start blushing.
It can be really embarrasing. I can present pretty well but once eyes are on me in a certain way....woosh...here it is again.

Well if I wasn't sure of my ISTPness before reading this list I am now. I'll give it a go.

You can enjoy both classic rock and classical music.

You can't understand how ten people can cue outside a public bathroom when there's an empty one right beside it..oh wait that might have been for women, ah well.

Yup, me too. And if I'm really trapped I actually break out into a kind of rash.

Seriously. I hate it and it's always with something that isn't really embarrassing. I can say some really irreverent things without batting an eye and the most innocent thing or reaction from someone and I'll go red.

:crazy:

When you LOL while reading this topic?



a devastating one-liner, could that be one like making a joke towards a new teacher, who throws you out of class because he feels offended and then quits his job the same day ending up in a nervous breakdown?
