    Default Do ISTP's confuse the crap out of people?

    I notice on the forum and in sports that dealing with istp's can be very confusing task in alot of ways as they are very unpredictable.Do Istp's confuse you or do you find them to be pretty straightforward?

    Yes. In fact, I deliberately go out of my way to toy with people so they'll leave me alone.

    I can predict my ISTP friend just fine, for the most part. I know what she likes. She confused me when I first met her because I couldn't read her intentions very well, but I adapted to that pretty fast. (I thought she didn't like me very much, for a long time, and then she baked me a birthday cake. )

    But I dunno. Everyone's confusing to someone.

    I think my colleague is an ISTP. I wouldn't call him confusing (if anything he finds me co fusing.) I have trouble determining his capabilities however in regards to worj
    k related tasks. My only confusion is never knowing whether I have overestimated or underestimated him.

    I've got a friend very synonymous to the lead in Drive. Of my inner grouping of friends, he's the most puzzling.

    I don't think I'm unpredictable. I'm pretty even keel. But if someone doesn't understand you - you'll be considered unpredictable by them. People who get me never approach me with that description. People who don't - I'll get the 50 questions. Meh. That's everyone tho, right?

    There appears to be a gender split with ISTPs. ISTP women lean towards being calm and rational. ISTP men appear to lose some of their rationality and calmness, hopped up on testosterone.

    If I lose my cool at times, it's usually because of danger or someone making a mistake. It's more about actual problems happening. Not me. If I had to guess, testosterone is aggressive and initiating, creating situations. I haven't been that way since I was a kid. It's a maturity thing (one could argue that females mature sooner though).
