    Default So I'm an ISTP

    Just thought I'd let you all know...

    Funny thing is, most people suspected and/or are not surprised

    *And next the 3rd function changes and Unique turns ISFP. :p*

    Seriously though, from most of your posts, I'd also say iSTP fits you better than ESTP.

    Congratulations on your istp-hood!
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    ISTP? Well aren't you just Unique.

    Fun fact: I know a female ISTP whose middle name is "Unique".

    I'm curious as to the differences between ISTPs and ESTPs. How do the motivations differ between the two types? I have an ISTP brother and an ESTP sister and they both

    a) Hate each other with a violence. I have had to summon other siblings to help drag them apart every time they play chess, poker, a videogame, ANYTHING competitive. It always comes to blows between them.

    b) They both have exactly the same effect on my ENFJ mother; she thinks they are cold, manipulative liars and has actually tried to exorcise them of demons a number of times. She keeps burning sage in their bedrooms and putting weird sachets of herbs under their beds to ward off the evil spirits posessing them.

    c) Both are incredibly talented at many different things but do terribly academically. They cannot focus on assignments and cannot see the point of homework.

    I want to know how these two seemingly similar types differ and why my siblings hate each other so much despite being so alike. Also how to explain their behaviour to my mother in a way that doesn't involve demons.
    Anger is also a feeling.

    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    Cool! My brother is ISTP, and he's pretty much fantastic, so I always like to come across ISTP's.
