    Default ISTP Misconceptions



    Excellent analysis and presentation possibly put together by DJArendee of Typology Central, etc.? hmm..EJ or DJ? close enough.

    Especially liked/amused by the description of how the ISTP brain works. omg...feelings...those damned emotions

    What does a thinking brain even know to do with those?

    I don't like drama; but yes an ISTP can be dramatic like Fight Club style. Quite a bit disconsorting for the observer and observed when the internal world; gets momentarily intense and pops on up to the surface.

    Regardless of who, it's very well done I think.

    Definitely have experienced the ISTP hyper-emotionalism before. It's confusing as hell. lol

    Off topic question: So, um, is it mostly STPs who own motocycles?

    Wow, this description of ISTP was really accurate.

    I got to say @DJ Arendee, I've watched some of your recent videos lately about ISTP/ESTP and your descriptions are VERY correct.
    I don't know how well the descriptions you make of the other types are but the ones about ISTP is like you are describing me in detail.
    The way you described how ISTPs are dramatic on the inside in the How to tell apart ESTP vs ISTP (take 2) is very detailed and correct (at least for me).
    I'm impressed.

    There is more need to describe the ISTP.

    My need to learn about cars is only because of my need to free myself from my dependence upon others, same goes for construction, and just about anything that I'd have to rely upon others for.....I need to not need anyone but like when others need me... and yes we're very emotional when pushed but trust me you don't want to see it

    I thought the double life of an ISTP is that they secretly are the pornstars.
