    Ni=Rebel with a cause
    Ne=Hipster

    I see how it is

    Anyway, it seems that ISTPs rebel against things but aren't rebels at the same time. Some of them just like to do what they like (and if there's some sort of rule that gets in the way, then whateva....) But they are all 100% ninjas, of course

    I am sure you won't sleep tonight knowing what us istp's think about hipsters hahaha..... I think it's more of a feeling that stops me from rebelling just for the sake of it, actually. It feels more stupid than it actually is when I think about it, for me. It's just not me, and there are feelings there that tell me that, when I try it, if that makes sense.

    Either way, there is some truth to the hipster way-of-being, and I agree with many of them on certain topics.

    I guess standing your ground on certain points will garner this reputation of being a rebel. This is probably true for all types but maybe more noticeable with ISTP? IDK. So maybe when we dig our heels in it's more apparent because we aren't going to budge. It's opposite of our normal day to day disposition.

    But a rebel without support or empathy is just a troublemaking a**hole. Pick your battles.

    yeah i agree with what has mostly been said. Mostly I just do what I want when I want. Rules and laws and stuff don't really come into it. I have my own morals and I go by them. So I would say i'm not a rebel. Hedonistic-yes. Rebel- no. But then others will perceive what they want to anyway.

    I am ISTP and I developed a very complicated philosophy of partially about breaking the rules that was inspired by the writings of Nikola Tesla in his essay Man's Greatest Achievement. Here is mine:

    The Holy Grail of Merlin is the Divine Destiny, channeling the electrical vortices of the luminous waters of the living Force of Creation, forging and annihilating material substances in eternally whirling cycles, harnessing the unlimited energies of stellar alchemical wizardry, harmoniously orchestrating superstring symphonies, humbly awakening to all perspectives of the multidimensional relativistic reality, magically manifesting dreams by focused willpower into the shape shifting physical world of infinite evolutionary transformations, hacking the codifications of the Akashic Records, the Luminiferous Ether, the Universal Supercomputer, the Mind of God, destroying old laws and programming new laws into the Omniversal Existential Game, taming the Storm Dragon of Hell, seeking the Higher Balance of Heaven, crowning man beside Master Melchizedek, the Cosmic Creator, the Ultimate Architect, the Archmage Arcanum Archon.

    ISTP's are rebels because they're competent enough to do whatever the hell they want and don't need help from anyone (70% of the time). In certain ways that is construed as rebellious to personalities that like to do things "by the book." Also, ISTP's are indifferent to most people, so this will tend to piss off the more narcissistic personalities who demand everyone recognize their presence.

    Don't fuck with my ability to do what I need to do to get a job done and we are good. Otherwise, we may have some problems. I dont do " micro-managing". Other than that, I couldn't give a damn about most things. Let it be. End of story.

    Now that I think about it, ESTPs I know have more of a rebellious bone then I do. Half the time it just aint worth it. Most people go about the world with opinions they hold as truth and they knock the other persons opinion. Its like a pissing fight where the rebellious person doesnt even realize they are pissing back. I am actually the most rebellious against these types of people...those who are highly opinionated, highly judgemental, and hold things very highly as "right/wrong" or "true/false" whether it is the under dog or the group. For some reason I dont like that heated/opinionated stuff whether it be the group or a rebellious person against the group.

    That is exactly what I was going to respond. Excellent words Mae.
