Hopefully he was talking about bungee jumping or cliff diving!
Or skydiving or all of the above. It doesn't matter what it is the answer is "always jump"
Wow. This is right I'm young and is learning computer coding at home I will always love to help, tinker, and anything to do with electronics. And I like to be alone.
Part of the 2% :)
i agree with you all i am a 14 yr old and they all match me! we are doing this for an English assignment and it is actually quite interesting!
This makes sense to me. This is spot on and describes me a lot.
As an istp i find this very true. But im dissappointed in the lack of job options that should be associated with istp's, like surgeons or lawyer. Im an istp college student who is aiming for a job in plastic surgery. these jobs make the most sense because it appeals to my love of fixing things, aesthetics, mechanics, and curiosity.
the jobs did seem limited
I'm an INFP, while my husband for 11 years is ISTP. It was described here that I'm a challenging opposite for him. But I'm so in love with him so I fought with all my heart to keep him happy beside me. I think our relationship really works, and we are both satisfied with each other very much. I adore his ability and sense in things (he's like my personal Superman), and he loves me for appreciating all his works to the specific details. So IMO no matter which group you are, if you love a person deep enough, you could have a beautiful relationship with them by understanding their personality. And of course vise versa. ;) MBTI is the best in describe personalities, I believe. So much fun!
I absolutely love the sound of your relationship with your husband. I also believe that any two personalities can have a beautiful, loving relationship. I do think it's funny how not-ISTP-like this post is. It is open, free, and expressive of the good things in your life. For an ISTP, generally it takes them until later in life to be able to open up at all. It is obvious to me how different our two personality types are, and I think it's wonderful you can be there to help your man grow as a person.
This describes me. I love technology and spend 76% of my time alone in my room. What else could fit better?
it's absolutely true for me....really nailed it...
I agree with the majority of the content on this page, however it does seem pretty narrow, even by Myers Briggs standards. I am an ISTP and some of these things about me are true, however it fails to capture what other websites delineating what an ISTP is. This website is particularly bad at including borderline personalities, that is, personalities that are close to 50/50 in I/E S/N T/F and P/J. Simply put, it is overly stereotyping the ISTP personality. I attribute the number of people commenting in awe of this website to their lack of gathered comparable information and the desire of those who closely match to express their opinions, whereas the moderates are less likely to come forward. Good day.
You are definitely an ISTP. Your Ti is showing. Wonder what you've learnt in 7 months...
I seem to be a complicated mix of ISFP and ISTP it seems. Kinda depends on how tired I am and my current mood, but I think I lean more towards this than ISFP.
This fit me to a t. I am a woman and learned how to ride a motorcycle back in the early eighties. I loved speed. It gave me the biggest thrill of my life. I have always had a natural aptitude for machines also. I have never been one for small talk either
I've always felt mis-understood and an outsider, but as I have grown older I have found confidence in myself as an ISTP. As I kid I always took apart things like my parents old black and white TV to figure out how they worked. People see me as aloof ( I was nicknamed the Ice Queen), because I can not tolerate small talk, small people, lines, mediocrity. My motto is always jump and people see me as risk taker/daredevil, but I actually do think before jumping. I often give mixed signals that confuse people because I can be outgoing and gregarious if a topic interests me, but then pull back and am reserved for topics I find mundane. I work in technology and excel at troubleshooting and working under pressure finding solutions to problems needing resolving yesterday. I do not good with expressing compassion or feelings and people tend to think I am cold though I feel deeply. Now if one day I can finally find someone who gets and will put up with me. If you try to change or control me I will be gone faster then you can blink
Interesting fact: Link from the Legend of Zelda series actually has this personality type. Any Zelda fans out there who are ISTPs?
This is so true its creepy
This is amazing. I just got out of a long term relationship, and it nailed it perfectly. I was asking for action and she was more dreaming. this is scary accurate
This is sooooo dumb
this is so true! i have always wanted something to describe me! this is a project that we are doing in school! its a cool idea and shows how my personality depends on my life style and the way i live it! i guess im a ISTP. i did it 2 times and it was the same both times!!
I'm amazed, it just nailed it
Im reposting this reply I gave to someone else's comment to the general thread in hopes I might get some more incite to my husband.
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 a few 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 rotflol
I jump out of airplanes to put out fires, generally don't like discussing plans over action, and all my hobbies involve crafting things. Pretty much nailed it.
This is me. However, I feel that these qualities are useful for other career paths than listed. Taking my own experience, I have two degrees and various scholarships. I will be training as a barrister (a type of English lawyer) shortly. The mechanics of the ISTP allow me to unravelling complex legal problems and present practical solutions to clients. I should state that I’m intending on practicing at the civil/commercial bar and as such an ISTP may not be as apt to practice at the family bar.
The often terse nature of ISTP’s are also particularly well suited to advocacy as is the ability to reduce complex concepts into simple terms. Persuasion is best done when everyone in the room understands what is being discussed.
Casting that aside . . . I did want to pursue a trade in secondary school.
Wow that's great
Jesus christ man. I took an rpg personality test that linked my result to this and this description is too hard to believe to be real. I never expected a personality test to be so accurate.
I got I, may be N or S, may be F or T, P but I think this one is the closest.

This is exactly like me every single thing i do is here ........OMG I like all those think like aviation i do archary
This test is 100% accurate. I've always been interested in mechanics and inventing stuff. I draw on a daily basis. I also love to draw blueprints and write how-tos. you would not belive how hiper i get when im alone and am not doing anything.I have severe adhd but i know how to control it. Belive that this site is 100% accurate. I am an ISTP and i am proud to be one. ISTP IS A GOOD PERSONALLITY TYPE+
Well some of those jobs ain't the easiest to change career to! Would love to be a pilot or try again at mechanical engineering instead of civil/surveying but there's those pesky bills to pay!
