This is very accurate!
perfect description of my personality
This website totally nailed me down!
WOW. This is me!
ITS SO TRUE IT'S SCARY
I was so lucky to have my boss give me the Myers-Briggs test when I was 53. I am an ISTP, and this answered so many questions I have had in my life that nobody was ever able to answer. I finally realized why I was attracted to computers, and why databases, especially, were my first love. And I mean love. When I began with PCs in 1981, it was a 24/7 occupation. Yup, I'm an ISTP, and found that I can finally accept who I really am.
Ha I discovered the use of ms access a couple years ago and since taught my self to build one up and now find any excuse to use it even though it can be annoyingly difficult to perform some basic tasks I can do in excel quickly :p... VBA is a slow learning process when your naff at languages lol
Wow. this is me
This is exactly who I am. Truly unbelievable how such a simple test can yeild such an accurate description of my personality. I'm a very practical person who likes to get things done rather than to sit around planning and discussing conceptual ideas. While Math theories can be interesting to me, I find it to be a waste of time and effort, unless there is a practical application for it.
holy crap bruce lee is an ISTP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
why is it so accurate?
i'm glad my current job description is in my predicted roles! Funny thing was, the other style i had to pick from had my role in what i would likely not become.
I have to say it's inaccurate that ISTPs "shouldn't" become clergy. Maybe not many do statistically, but I know at least one priest and one deacon who are pretty obvious ISTPs and they are *great* at what they do.
THIS IS SO LIKE ME!!!
HOLY MOTHER OF CHEESE
Jeez man. Don't get that excited dude! Evan if it is exciting. ISTP's are awesome!
I'm only 17 and for the past 3 years I have been trying to find something that truly describes me. I found it hard to explain my personality to others. Then I found this. My first thought was "Finally, now maybe if others read this they might understand why I did the things I have done"
I totally agree with you. this will solve so many problems!
A true ISTP doesn't care if others understand him or not; he just does what he does.
Wow...yeah I do enjoy weaponry and archery...however I do enjoy drawing and writing at a desk.
I'm skeptical of computers telling me what I am and how I am, but this was spot on. Even a little creepily accurate. Very cool test!
The "computer" as you put it, is not telling who you are. It is a test that just so happens to be made available to take on a computer. I do hope you understand that. Just me being analytical as a result of your response :-)
on point . i love being an ISTP
Yes! On point indeed
2% of the female population. oh my. I'm part of a very small percentage. Completely accurate though.
me too. :D
I'm a female ISTP who used to think I was (or had to be) an ENFJ. I had a lot of issues and was trying to be the opposite of who I really am. I finally accepted who I am and I really love myself and my life now that I think of myself as ISTP and allow myself to act within my true personality.
I used to think I was an ISTJ. I do enjoy weaponry/archery/fixing stuff... however I do enjoy doing math and writing or drawing at a desk.
I've done this quiz a couple of time and I got ISTP, ISTJ and ISFP. You CAN be a mixture of them depending on the situation
Have a look at the cognitive functions. ISTJ and ISFP are completely different kettles of fish from an ISTP. The only types that are similar to an ISTP are the ESTP or INTP.
i was unfortuantely tested ISTP while i want to be ENFJ.
i am in your previous trail.
Yeah me too, that's why I've decided to just go ahead and finish getting my A&P license, so I can start working on airplanes, I have two thirds of it already done I just have to take the tests :D it's the only thing that seemed fun to me even though I'm a girl
Wow, im actually really surprised at how accurate this was. Im a girl too, and sience my dream job was literally an electrician, I got teased a lot. It finally makes sense now...
Me too, I always knew I was rare.
we are pretty rare *throws hair over shoulder*
what this isnt accurate at all literally every single job i'd ever wanted to have is considered least popular and everything id never want to do is most popular? the only thing i can relate to is the introvert part but i think i did the quiz wrong lol
im amazed. normally i dont buy into the "take a quiz for your horoscope or personality", thing, but this is insane. sure maybe 1 or two things didnt fit me, but that was out of like 110 things that did.
Honestly, it doesn't seem like me that much - but I think that's my own fault, with the way I was answering questions in a test.
I am not sure, the ISTP sounds more like me but I feel every time I take this test I get a different one?
You need to be brutally honest with yourself when answering the questions. Answer the TRUE answer - don't give the answer that will give a desired response, don't guess what the answer should be, don't second-guess the question or try to anticipate the result. The brutally-honest answer will reveal your true personality. Usually the first answer you give will be the most accurate one.
Think about it, you're not trying to pass a test. You're trying to discover the real you. This is an investigation - not a test.
Yes! My husband took the test at my request early in our marriage and got infp. It didn't feel accurate to me. Now after 5 years of marriage and many misunderstandings between the two of us he retook the test on his own and was honest and got istp. It is so accurate my jaw was on the floor. ... from rotfl
Nope, I don't buy it. I've answered everything as truthfully as I can and this is not me at all. Sorry test, better luck next time.
Just accept the fact girl!
I encourage you to look into the validity and reliability studies published on the MBTI CAPT website. I promise you, if you took the assessment with the correct mindset, 96% of the time, it will result in exactly what your preferred personality type is...as long as you are assessed through a verification process with a credentialed practitioner.
This really is who I am. Recently I have been looking into engineering, and was excited when I found many types of engineering in the predicted jobs! I can also finally understand why I do what I do. I may hold a grudge for a while then drop it randomly, and I always try to steer my friends' conversations away from emotions. This is me in a nutshell and I'm proud of it.
Hits the mark way closer than I expected, and now I feel such a sense of freedom and understanding. Granted, there are nuances here and there, but wow. I'm glad I put aside my skepticism for this test and went ahead and did it.
I love my result!!!
