    Default Am I ISTP?

    Whatcha think?

    When I test my J/P function is the closest to borderline. I think I had 14% J... I think when I'm most comfortable I'm a P and then when working, doing tasks and altogether operating in more stressful conditions, my J shines. I know Night called me out in his "mistyped MBTIc members" thread as being an ISTP. *shrug*

    You could be, you haven't ever stricken me as a 'normal' ISTJ. BY that, I mean, you seem different from other ISTJs, and that's a compliment. But who knows, you could still be an ISTJ, not all of them are the same, and J/P isn't always black and white. You may just be a little J like you said. It's up for debate.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    ^Thanks for the compliment .

    I read over the portait of the ISTP and I fit in with a lot of it, but there is some I don't identify with really. As is the case with the ISTJ portrait. I guess it's nothing more than just a weak dominance of the J.

    What are your thoughts on the SJ and SP temperaments?

    Heh, you're probably just border-lining on both. Like, I list my type as ISTx because my J and P are pretty even. Sometimes, I'm extremely P and other times, J. -shrugs- It happens.

    Although it can make it kinda confusing to post on the various threads in both SJ and SP because I know that I'm not really gonna fit into either type very well.
    The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
    defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
    important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
    supplemental.

    I read somewhere that ISTPs have a pretty fair Te streak in them. That may be what your experiencing.

    I see a correlation. Quite a few ISTJ's think they're ISTP's (and they may be).

    Hmm. Maybe we need a master "Am I an ISTP or an ISTJ?" resource thread.

    TheChosenOne, I think you've identified as an ISTP before... what made you choose ISTJ instead? (Or are you still in the discovery process?)

    This is where I think V.I. would actually be a bit useful.
