    Default Ever Wondered why ISTPs can seem similar to us?

    I have always found the ISTPs I meet to be pretty similar to us superficially at least, I've always wondered why. I mean I like to get my hands dirty and to find out how stuff works but still wondering how this is possible
    I even tested ISTP twice

    ISTPs tend to reduce me to a stammering idiot.

    Meh.
    Only rarely sexual ENTPs and ESTPs, especially if enneagram 8.
    What you're describing is just Ti+Pe (both Ne or Se).
    I don't think that it's so personal
    Anymore
    I don't think that it's irreversible
    Anymore
    Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper.

    That's pretty much what my ENTP husband thinks of his ISTP brother

    I tend to be the most confused with ISTJ types the underlying processes are so radically different though we just look similiar on the outside. Our internal processes are light and day different.

    If "us" is ENTP like your type indicates...i have no idea what your talking about. Not similiar much at all. The inferior Sii vs tertiary Ni is a stark contrast.

    In what ways do you see similarities?

    both can see themselves as rational individuals, even though they are not in real life. they really look similar if they are kind of enneagram 5s, and maybe 7s, 5s make them seem more mystical and sevends, you get the rest
    In order for society to survive, we must all pitch in and cooperate with one another, split the resources fairly.
    If we get greedy, everything will fall apart
    The main reason why there is no long peace is because everything is set and stone.
    Another is that resources are limited and the ones who had the most goes bad because they are in control.

    Most are pretty rational that i know. T/F are rational functions and they are our dominant functions N/S are the irrational functions. We need both in society as rational doesnt always help. Sometimes irrational is good and provides a method to learn above and beyond just being rational.

    Maybe the OP is irrationally choosing ISTP answers as well as other irrational people

    Well first of all thanks for the replies

    maybe I'm more pragmatic then most ENTPs I see online and meet in real life. I do like theory but unless its going to have some pratical use don't discuss it with people. People talking for hours and hours about their problems eventually gets on my nerves and I just go tell them to do XYZ to get it sorted. I talk a lot but I get really pissed off when people are all talk and no do, sometimes I fear I can only talk and do nothing too. Emotional talk gets on my nerves.

    But the main thing is I like to get stuff done rather than keep complaining or talking about how stuff could be. I'm more of "well it could be like this but unfortunately it isn't so right now, so just go make it that way don't tell me how it should or shouldn't be, just go do it"

    so from all the ISTPs I know I came to see the similarities between me and them:-
    -generally don't like to complain a lot just go solve the problem
    -don't like theory unless it has some practical use or goes against the facts in my head
    -don't like whiny people a lot
    -would rather get things done than discuss them for hours and hours and hours and not do anything about it( I can still discuss them for an hour though lol)
    -don't like overly emotional people, drama or people who aren't honest
    -Somewhat private about their personal matters (ISTPs definitely more), feelings both
    -Rational, cool headed and generally laid back

    so I just wanted to know if other ENTPs and ISTPs feel the same and if so do you think its got to do with Ti or the functional arrangement somehow???

    maybe it's the TP/Ti?
