    Sorry, "in the theory"?

    I've gotten less sleep than I would have liked, and your meaning escapes me.

    If you care to elucidate, what do you mean?

    I know "they" say that Ns are more prone to theorize and care about abstract things, but I do not necessarily see this "fact" manifesting in the ISTP type.

    Their predilection to think, think, think, think about everything and anything, or most things makes it difficult for me to conclude that they don't engage in a lot of abstract thinking!

    Huh, ok, I guess you can change that to "in my experience", then. I'd thought it was a trend but I guess wasn't looking for it specifically. I have noticed a lot of istps here are content with saying their piece without needing to repeat it 7 reworded but barely-different ways (only noticeable because this repetitive arguing style is generally the norm on forums in general).

    Maybe there are also some istps around here that like to argue endlessly, and I just tend to skip over those posts, lol.

    Morgan's right.

    I just sit around and 'think the kink' but never do any of it.

    Hahahaaha, yeah, I see that on here, too.

    In my experience, IRL, with ISTPs they tend to wax politic/philosophize/argue just as much or even more than many Ns do.

    And, hahahahaa, the ISTPs I know tend to find *engaging* in foruming a big fat waste of time, (except for the use of lurking and gleaning important information )

    ISTP don't have souls.

    However they are grand watching your back in a fight...as long as they don't unnecessarily hop in and kill somebody.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Okay, bingo, this makes sense.

    The ISTPs I know are ALL ABOUT PRAGMATICS!!!

    I wouldn't even be able to recall the countless times my ISTP friend has dropped a pointless, or useless line of discussion to steer it into something more productive, so yeah, that makes sense!


    while N often feels the need to explore all the zillions of pathways even if they see where it is going, because there's value to the type in that exploration process.

    I think ISTPs get a lot more done that INTPs, at least in the tangible world; applications of Ti are made externally. INTPs can get pretty anal about the abstracted thinking process itself, regardless of its practical applicability... the abstracted concepts often never get practical application, they exist for themselves.
    Is this why something like engineering appeals to the ISTP type?

    Applied physics, and all that jazz?
