    Default ISTP + INTP dynamics

    I'd like to hear what ISTPs think of INTPs - pros, cons, experiences, etc.

    I think ISTPs combine smart and sexy better than any other type, but they seem to get annoyed with the things I find intellectually stimulating - e.g. Ne-fueled ramblings and theories.

    I'm not close with this one ISTP girl I know, but she's notorious for giving people judgmental looks whenever they're acting weird, lolz. I like her, though. Maybe if circumstances were there we could have been better friends, but I'm not sure.

    That happened with me when I mentioned to an ISTP girl that I declined a trip to Europe (Portugal, France and England) with my family because I needed a vacation to rest, not to get tired. That somehow seemed to be an ungraspable idea for her.

    In her defense, I'd think you were pretty crazy, too. :P

    Rasofy try talking about history (strategic warfare etc) and also politics with ISTPs. I have a feeling they'll like those. Use your (Ne) to take them back in time, give them excitement.

    Haha, I have this relation of mine (ENFP gent) who thinks vacations should be for rest. But he does go on trips a lot. On on trips that require a lot of travel but a lot of company, drinking, singing etc. After all that he sleeps a lot. He is a bit obese though. That probably is why he thinks the same way you do, though you probably do for different reasons..

    My family (ESTJ dad, ESFP mom, ESTP sis, I) loves and do sight seeing trips a lot. So not taking a chance to go to those wonderful countries ..................... wait a sec this isn't about trips.

    I think a lot of philosophers that are always typed INTP might really be ISTP because after all ISTPs are also Ti dominant with tertiary Ni so they could be just as equally intellectually stimulated as INTPs if they have learned to develop and appreciate their intuitive side as well as their naturally superior logic.

    I find that it's easy to relate to people when you find something in common; specifically, things you both would like to complain about.

    Everyone likes to complain, and everyone likes justification for their complaints!

    Use this tactic, and they will maintain a neutral to positive opinion about your character!

    I dont get INTPs much. To me its like 2 seperate worlds, we both have very different thought processes even though we are both Ti.

    Yeah but not as much normally, it is a tertiary function, so.
