    I think as far as famous intellectuals go, I think a better case can be made for Darwin being an ISTP. Not to say he is, but I can see it more than Jung. Jung said he spent his whole early life in a state of detachment, trying to make sense of all of these ideas he finally put words to later. At least Darwin was out and about, exploring the world - and then his theoretical models came later (edit: This could very well be INTP too though, of course).
    I was involved in a thread here a little while back on Carl Jung's type, and the quote is in that thread. I really don't care what type he is.... But I think istp is a possibility. It's not a non-possibility.

    The proliferation of ignorant stereotypes in this forum is getting tiresome. I posted this in the SP forum:

    Here are couple of objective ISTP profiles:

    http://www.jungtype.com/ISTP.htm

    http://www.careerplanner.com/Berens-...ationships.cfm

    Contributions to the team of an ISTP

    In a team environment, the ISTP can contribute by:

    * being a source of information, or an 'expert' in some subjects
    * using analytical skills to produce practical solutions to difficult problems
    * encouraging the team to think, and then act
    * having a cool head in a crisis
    * applying relevant and realistic logical arguments
    * encouraging the team to realistically assess the situation


    Furthermore, do any of these suggested ISTP careers sound like "bikers"?


    Careers ISTPs Might Consider:


    Commercial Artist
    Intelligence Agent
    Private Detective
    Software Developer
    Lawyer/Judge
    Media Specialist
    Fire Fighter
    Medical Technician
    Corrections Officer
    Legal Secretary
    Electrical Engineer
    Purchasing Agent
    Automotive Products Retailer
    Coach/Trainer
    Computer Repair Person
    Construction Worker
    Optometrist
    City Works Technician
    Physical Therapist
    Public Manager
    Craft Worker
    Computer Systems Analyst
    Race Car Driver
    Pilot
    Marine Biologist
    Surveyor
    Farmer
    Mechanic
    Computer Programmer
    Banker
    Securities Analyst
    Cook
    Professional Hunter
    Corporate Executive
    Radiological Technician
    Paralegal
    Forest Ranger
    Police Officer
    Economist
    Dental Hygienist
    Respiratory Therapist
    Chiropractor
    Mechanical Engineer
    Weapons Operator
    Carpenter


    I found that ISTP career list in mere seconds. (And that's just one of many.) If someone would actually take "mechanic" and "carpenter" out of a list of careers with that much breadth, and think that's what ISTPs do, I don't see how they could be smart enough to operate a coffee maker without harming themselves.

    People's knowledge of type will be limited by the sources they choose to use.
    If there are any adults reading this, I suggest grabbing a copy of:

    You must know for a fact what type Carl Jung is. Why we were all involved in those threads to argue and try to figure out his type, I have no idea. We could've just asked you.
    Carl Jung doesn't ride a fucking motorcycle, so he must not be an istp. Genius thoughts.

    It's a much more-complicated endeavor to type Carl Jung than what you are expounding, as he is a complicated individual. From what I have seen, it would take larger amounts of effort to make a real case for it, and it's beyond the scope of this forum.

    Didn't you get the memo? If you don't ride motorcycles or fix things, you fail at life as an ISTP.

    Yea, because any other type would never ride or fix a fucking motorcycle. Of course not, because a website didn't tell me they did.

    My last question has been buried under troll waste. No matter, I'll just repeat it. @KDude "Which type [like Darwin] thinks about ideas abstractly, and builds a brand new paradigm out of evidence based on experiment and observation?"

    I think that threads veer off topic because some believe that those who delve deep into the internal logic lose sight of the overall context, and they seek to reestablish that context. There seems to be more and more of this sentiment going around. I happen to think that's a great thing and for god's sake we really do need more of it, but we can also work to establish which parts of these theories are useful (none! lol! haha hi five! *congratulatory fist bump*) and which are not.

    I guess the question would be--if we're going to categorize types anyway, would the lovely fourth dichotomy be better termed as what we extravert or what actually drives us? My first thought is that that the former is more useful for behavior modeling and workforce development and the latter for a more 'scientific,' down-in-the-weeds cognitive approach..
