    Default Give an ISTP a compliment...

    ....without using the words "fix, tool or mechanic" After seeing so many of these threads I'm curious about what others see besides being handy. I'm sure not all of us are in a garage all the time.

    ISTPs are often very witty and have excellent senses of humor.

    You guys are also some of the most warm and caring people around, although it's generally paired with that cool and detached exterior, making it easy to miss.

    Are you wishing I stuck with "fix, tool, or mechanic" yet?

    Dear ISTPs of this world,

    Thank you for embodying all the nuttyness of your extroverted cousins, but being able to contain it and thus be our interpretors to the world of those more "normal" than us.
    My thanks also goes to you for being able to be assertive without getting outright confrontational like we do.
    You are a insightful, witty, clever, and good natured bunch.
    Do not ever fret that some misinterpret your aloofness as disinterest or rudeness, because it is what makes you able to see so much so quickly and make sense of it without causing a single ripple in the pond of life, whereas your ESTP cousins still haven't figured out how to get past the "cannonball" approach.
    You ISTPs rock, don't ever change, and keep amazing us with your coolness and badassery.



    Sincerely,

    -Alex of Halla

    "Nice work." (along with raised eyebrows of impressedness) or *appreciative nod of approval*

    I love ISTPs. My favourite coworker was our grumpy ISTP workshop manager--he's the one I miss the most. Smart, crotchety and had the biggest heart, though he did his best to hide it under layers of cynicism. Wicked sense of humour as well.

    His favourite compliment was drawling, "Oooh, now that's clever," when somebody came up with a solution to a problem. So perhaps that's the best way to compliment an ISTP in return?

    (A workshop is sufficiently different to a garage, right? )

    No. Just tired of leading with stereotypes.

    If I give good advice, it's to console myself for no longer being in a position to give a bad example.

    ISTP, you tell it like it is!
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I hear you, but I still think you ESTPs get more women than us.
