    YES! Where are you all hiding?

    (I went to an Ivy League college, one of most anti-ISTP places you can find. My practical talents and bluntness were not appreciated by anyone outside the theatre club)

    I guess that's how I come off too. At least, I get the feeling that most women don't like me.
    I'm alright around guys, but then they act differently because I'm female, like I can't handle their humor or I'll be easily offended... I haven't bothered to figure it out. I usually come out and say "you probably won't hurt my feelings, say what you wanted to say."

    Yes--as a supervisor somehow I always got along pretty well with my guy minions (even some of the NF-ish types). The girls... it was pretty much hit & miss. But the guys rocked and we had awesome fun.

I wouldn't wanna break 200 windows by not being careful)

    Also, if he asks for saltpeter, don't give it to him.
    Whoo hoo! I've always identified with Indy--and also with Batman. Cool semi-antisocial people with awesome weapon--er, toys.

    My first big toy was a horse. I then took up archery, was a founding member of my university's fencing club, and later progressed to the position of fight coach/coordinator/choreographer for the theater troupe. Fire is also fun.

    My younger brother, whom I suspect to be a fellow ISTP, is into snowboarding, mountain biking, and has a really snazzy motorcycle of which I'm quite envious.

    I like ISTPs a lot. Despite their reputations as the most introverted of all introverts- they are pretty good socially, make great conversion and have perfect social propriety. They tend to dress really well, make good analysis on abstract subjects and only need to be taken to a place once, before they remember how to get there again.

    Their weakness is that due to their inability to articulate their feelings and wants, that they often become codependent on people who make decisions for them, especially overbearing people who are overly emotional and hysterical. Therefore, they are chronically dissatisfied because they feel trapped in situations in which they feel they have no control over- yet they rather be in that situation than be alone.

    For an ISTP to be happy- they need to be around others who give them independence- and let them make their own decisions and bring out the best in them.

    Overall they are very cool people, can make conversation with anyone they meet, tidy, well- dressed, ethical and filled with a sense of duty. They make really great co-workers and friends because you know you can depend on them to be consistent.

    Aren't you a bit young to have held a supervisory position? Nevertheless, more power to you.

    Hmm, I've never quite figured out how to tell if someone is an ISTP.

    I wonder if I'm an ISTP. A lot of the profile matches, but so does the INTP profile.

    The few rationals I know find cars boring, hate going out on my boat when the water is rough and generally find material/tangible things boring.

    Conversely ISTPs, although often very intelligent (yep that was an attempt to stroke my ego) will likely fall asleep when you start to discuss theoretical subjects.

    See, I love science and math but only when it is relevant to something I am doing. On the other hand my father just loves stuff for its own sake.
