    I believe it is around 70, with 20 to paraverbal and 10 for verbal, but yeah, it is the majority of most communications.

    Shoot. That's interesting. I think my own communication is like 50% paraverbal. It'd explain a lot.

    Fascinating to think about. My ISTP brother is very good at reading and responding to nonverbal cues.

    You look at women in the same way - and influence them that same way.

    After all, body language makes up the largest part of our communication - even for those that aren't aware of it, or skilled at it.

    I've never needed to talk to an ISTP to know if he was for me. All I needed was an evening of eye contact, observation and syncing up. And they seem to need not much more.
    Have you ever seen that show suits? There is an ENFP character named donna on there. That's how I picture you.

    Exactly this. A lot of people seem to talk to hear the sound of their own voice. I don't get that. Both in forums and IRL I don't usually talk unless I actually have something to say, which is not really all that often. Why do we need to be talking all the time? Why can't we listen, think, or observe for a while instead?

    This kind of came out of nowhere, but sure, I know it can. I dated an INFJ briefly, and was in the awkward semi-dating zone for awhile with another INFJ. I think any type can date any type though.

    edit: I think this might apply more to strongly Ti-dominant ISTPs, whereas the ones with stronger Se might be more chatty. Not coincidentally, Ti strength would tend to correspond with more strongly introverted ISTPs.

    @Hard

    Non-talkers drive me INSANE! Granted, I am a very talkative person and I love to talk so I am bias, but still. How else are you supposed to communicate with someone? Osmosis of thought? This has always confounded me. I'll see people who are good friends, but they talk very little to each other (from what I can observe). It's like... how do you know about the person? How does your friendship build? Is it magic? Where's the voodoo doll?

    Kidding aside, this really does confound me. I actually want to know from non-talkers. How do you build relationships? Though I should point out, there is a difference between someone who is a quiet listener, and someone who just doesn't talk much. A quiet listener, prefers to listen and let the other person speak. But, they offer up feedback and will continue the discussion (I have a few friends like this, I do get strained sometimes but that's my own problem). They will share what they think, just not readily and it needs to be prompted. Someone who doesn't talk is someone who does have thoughts, but just doesn't feel compelled or want to speak them, or they just don't care. I just... I don't get it at all.

    (I think this is independent of type, but I do agree this seems to be somewhat common amongst ISTP's).
    I've noticed that ISTP's tend to not be talkers, but instead tend to be doers. It seems that the way that you bond with the ISTP is to do activities with them. Such activities could include going to bar and drinking with them, playing sports with them, playing video games with them, having sex with them, etc.

    This stereotype makes me reconsider my boyfriend's type because he can talk a lot when he feels like it. Loves arguing and bullshitting and telling stories. I'm way less talkative, especially in social situations.
    I wouldn't even call this one a stereotype but just a universal attribute of ISTP types. Every ISTP I've ever met has been like this.

    They probably find you frivolous and annoying. But yea I hate small talk and probing questions. The general rule is I don't like using my Fe in any way unless it's negative. Crude jokes, shared hatred, pushing boundaries and talking about shared experiences is what I prefer. The easiest way to make me hate you is to start asking me how I'm doing or how my weekend was.
    Yes I've noticed this. So are you saying that to better get along with ISTP's, I should avoid talking about feelings with them altogether and that I should also avoid asking them any PERSONAL feeling-type questions? I guess ISTP's would really hate Fi-ish questions then as well that would ask them to reach deep inside themselves and reveal something that no one else would have known about them?

    Well I guess you can get two different versions of me depending on if I like you. If I don't like you then there is like this brick wall you can't get past. I won't even see you as a person more like an object to interact with like an ATM machine. Any attempts to connect with me to make you seem more human just piss me off. With best friends it's completely different I get to be myself the real unfiltered me.

    I do have a lot of thoughts but they aren't worth sharing with the wrong people and yea 99% of the time I just don't give a fuck. I guess it has to do with being self sufficient and not giving up personal information gives a tactical advantage over your enemies. My friendships are usually built on shared experiences like how soldiers in the army become close friends.
    How can you ever view a person as a machine without feelings? That is just so foreign to me? How is that possible?

    My ISTP brother doesn't like to "waste" talk, if that makes sense. He just doesn't feel like talking or hearing others talk if he doesn't see a point in the content of conversation, something he's said explicitly before. But he'll talk quite normally about things that matter to him, whether that be biochemistry or where to take our next family vacation. The "why" of it I assume is at least in part due to precise Ti plus not being into Ne possibility-spinning. He likes to say meaningful things and he likes to hear others say meaningful things and beyond that he'd rather pay attention to other interesting things.
    So then because it is illogical to waste time talking about feelings and meaningless shit, he views it as a waste of time?

    Yes in an ISTP's world feelings are gay. I like deep questions just more the Ti kind not the Fi kind.

    Well it's like to me the only people who exist are the people in my world. Everyone else can burn for all I care. I don't have enough Fe to care about random people.
