    Default I am and ISFP but...

    Well i am an ISFP and i think it describes me perfectly as i am but i want to change some of my personality characteristic to those of a ISTP.

    -Silent
    -Don't Talk much
    -Is usually underestimated by everyone but ahead of the game
    -Watches people lie and do things but keeps it to themselves, like they'll watch you lie but not do anything about it and mind their own business.
    -Not a loner or anything but quiet
    -Observes things carefully
    -Has a mysterious aura around them
    -Kinda like don't talk much but gets the job done.
    But i don't want to pretend. I want to genuinly become like tht. Is it possible?

    I see this is your first post. Welcome to the forum!

    Why do you want to change to ISTP? Are there things you're not happy with about ISFP? There is no best or worst type. The grass isn't greener on the other side because you find that the other type also has its challenges. Besides, do you really want to give up the strengths that make you special?

    I don't think its possible to change your type but you can work on changing some of your behaviors and habits.

    So you wanna be more T then F? To which I ask you, is it also because your too meotional and want to be more logical? Strictly speaking in that regard, T and F have nothing to do with it; T's can be emotional as F's can be logical (not to mention both type are using a rational judging primary funtion).

    Or perhaps you really are an ISTP and you've mistyped yourself?

    Oh and welcome to the forums

    introvert characteristics
    -Silent
    -Don't Talk much
    -Kinda like don't talk much but gets the job done
    -Not a loner or anything but quiet
    -Has a mysterious aura around them

    SP characteristics
    -Observes things carefully

    random
    -Watches people lie and do things but keeps it to themselves, like they'll watch you lie but not do anything about it and mind their
    own business.
    -Is usually underestimated by everyone but ahead of the game (i could see this associated with being a P, which would actually be more along the lines of underestimated but easily keeps up with the game, even when things don't go as planned - or associated with being an introvert, just because they don't display their competence externally as much....)

    if you're ISFP i would assume you already have most of these characteristics to a certain extent? though ISxPs do tend to be "extraverted introverts" - introverts in the sense that they primarily focus upon information internal to their minds, not external, but extraverts in the sense that they are open and social.

    your type probably won't ever change, for better or worse, since we've been essentially developing and building on our preferences from the moment we were born - but it's certainly possible to change your behavior. personally i am working on becoming more J-ish behavior wise.

    I agree with this. The traits you posted are pretty typically isfp traits also.
