    Default intp/istp differences

    i have seen threads in a similar vein, but none this explicit in intent.


    i once typed myself xntp, but have recently decided istp fits better. i have a fair grasp on the differences, but would like an official consensus.


    anything you can think of, feed me.

    I thought entp fit...but I'm not sure how well I am at typing. I know what ISTP's are like but not ENTP's. <--STILL!

    The only real reason I thought it fit was your sense of humor seemed very NTP like...but what do I know? lol

    For what it is worth: I get an xNTP vibe from you. ENTP, most likely.
    I detect a heavy presence of Fe in your posts.

    Yeah I frequent Ventrilo quite a bit, and pretty much everyone there from the start said they didn't get much an ENTP vibe from me. Recently I have been hanging out with a veteran of the site, and she was pretty convinced I am ISTP. When we relayed the information to everyone else in Ventrilo, they said it made a good bit of sense. As I did research, it just felt more and more 'right'. I am curious though, fowl macabre, of my Fe use. Can you link me any examples?

    I hadn't seen that before. Thank you, an interesting read. I see a lot of confusion goes on when ISTP's type themselves. I wonder why that is? I think people that are geared more towards analytical thought, such as myself, automatically attach themselves to the 'rational' stigmata of the NT's.

    From our lovely conversations that we have had, I agree with the ISTP assessment.

    Regardless of type, you're awesome and fun to talk to. That's all that really matters.

    I have a tendency to quickly box people. You showed up on my radar as xNTP.
    As for Fe usage: Just the basics of your communication style.

    Is it or isn't it? Beats me.

    At the very least I am Ti dom. I am beginning to wonder the true differences between Ne/Se... perhaps this thread should have been on that, particularly for the wider appeal. Oh well.

    Well, I have attempted to play Ne Reindeer games with you, and you are game for enjoying what I say... but you don't join in like I am used to. So that is why I thought you were ISTP instead.

    For Whoever:

    Of all the Improviser types, ISTPs most look like and most often identify with the Theorist temperament, often reporting preferences for INTP or for INTJ on assessments.

    Interaction Styles: ISTPs have a Chart-the-Course Interaction Style, which goes with a desire to enter a situation with some sort of course of action in mind. It doesn't have to be a detailed plan and ISTPs often seem planful as they analyze a situation in anticipation of what is likely to happen. ISTPs and INTJs share this Interaction Style and so would look alike in that way.

    The Chart-the-Course style often seems like the Strategic intelligence that is an important aspect of the Theorist temperament pattern and ISTPs often relate to the description of the Theorist temperament over the Improviser temperament. This is especially true when the Improviser description focuses too much on freedom and spontaneity.

    Temperament: Differentiating Improviser versus Theorist is key. Improviser desire for skillful performance often leads ISTPs to identify with the Theorist's core need for competence. In presenting the two temperaments, it helps to contrast the difference between skillful performance as a value and competence as a core need. For the Improviserâ„¢ skill often comes from the drive to action and they hate being clumsy or awkward. They get involved in an activity, get caught up in the pure joy of doing, and thus become skilled. Theorists need to feel competent and often want a measure of competence before they even do something. To practice or "do" means failure and that often can strike at the core need.

    Roles: ISTPs, INTPs, and INTJs share a desire to act independently and tend to take pragmatic roles with others, seeking autonomy. This makes the differentiation harder to discover.

    Language: It helps to listen for the concrete language of the ISTP, which often creates a picture in the listener's mind. Such language is likely to be full of specific examples and stories. INTP and INTJ language tends to reference abstract concepts with a focus on precision. ISTPs often get at the essence of something rather succinctly, whereas, INTPs and INTJ go into more depth.

    Interest: ISTPs are more likely to zero in on someone's motives than INTPs or INTJs (unless in the business of understanding people!)

    Similar Cognitive Dynamics: ISTPs and INTPs have the same Leading Role process (dominant) of introverted Thinking and are likely to approach situations with an analytical perspective and like to know the principles of how things work. The difference shows up in their Supporting Role processes (auxiliary). An INTP described his preferred work style as exploring problems and sub-problems (Ne), while his ISTP colleague described a tactical trouble shooting approach with a focus on getting the task done (Se).

    Also, ISTP's frequently engage their Relief Role process (tertiary) of introverted iNtuiting and enjoy looking at whole systems and patterns and getting a sense of what will happen in the future.
