    My ISTP impresses me all the time. Not just with his knowledge and how in touch he is with his physical surroundings, but also his determination and quiet resolution. Funny story: few weeks ago he came over and we were clearing out the shed. Found an adult sized pogo stick that us lot gave up on, having not managed to get a single bounce out of it before falling off. ISTP picks it up and figures he's gonna have a go. Gets two jumps first time. Within 10 minutes, he's got 15 jumps, even though the pogo stick's air compression springy type thing is badly in need of pumping up. Few days later he turns up with a pump, sorts it out, and doggedly stuck at it, in the blazing heat, til he'd done about 30 jumps.

    I was so impressed, I joked "Oooh you're sexy when you get all determined!" But for an instant there, I was almost turned

    Same. I envy people with a 'go do it' attitude because I don't have it. I'm impressed with their ability to get off their butt and do something. It's been so easy for me to impress teachers and parents with half-assed work that I've gone and got myself stuck in neutral (or first gear).

    Not very hard, i like people, i like to know how they tick and as i am usually a good judge of character if i think your a dodgy character, goodbye.
    Saying that though i am always on guard, so you'll only see what i want you to see and i will keep you at a distance until i feel safe to let you in.
    I'm very much this way, too. If I like you it isn't too hard to impress me (I am in no way discriminating about anything), but if you're sketchy it will be very unlikely that I'll even be polite to you. People know when I don't like someone.

    Generally, it's very difficult to impress me.

    It's hard to impress me. I often feel bad about it too. I don't know how to act to make the person feel like I'm impressed without overdoing it. When people feel like they can't impress you, I think they get the vibe to just stay away from you. It kind of sucks.

    Why do you feel bad? Your standards are your standards. Why should you compromise them for anyone?

    I don't know how to act to make the person feel like I'm impressed without overdoing it.

    Say something like, "Well done"?

    Some people "need" external validation. I wonder if they confuse your lack of being impressed with rejection?

    What kinds of things impress you ? Are they more physical in nature or ideas are more likely to impress you ?
    The passion for humanity, walk the talk, honesty, and loyalty.

    Not hard at all.
    I literally try to consciously not be impressed by some characteristic of a person, any person, because I always am and it's a bit worrisome.
    Even on this forum, my mind is like, "Wow, I like how honest they are, wow, their avatars are amazing, wow, she's so friendly, etc. etc." When I get in arguments with people, I'm still thinking, "Wow, it's cool that they stick with their views so adamantly, even though it's a pain in the ass."
    Very worrisome.

    It is not that difficult to impress me when I'm in a good mood and my "people-channel" is open. People's efforts to impress others merely amuse me and I dearly love to laugh (possibly with them but most probably at them). But if I'm caught off guard, it's really the simple little things that impress me the most. Things that are not that obvious and forced, and not used solely to impress others.

    People being themselves, open-minded, sincere, with a good (or bad) sense of humour and tons of wits. People who are able to overcome themselves and their fears without advertising it loudly to the rest of the world. People who make a conscious decision and stick to it, but not at the expense of others. I admire that a lot.

    When I'm not in that good of a mood, I couldn't care less about other people...

    It is quite difficult to impress me (especially when it comes to people).

    Things that impress me are:

    1. When someone expresses themselves in a different way than I do yet, at the end, their ideas are the same.

    2. Decisive people who can get things done.

    3. Nice people.

    4. People who remind me of myself.
