    Talk more about this. What, in your mind, makes you consider him a "competent" office manager? What are his strengths and weaknesses in that position?

    feeling type. You describe him from a 'thinky' perspective, yet I'm already sure he's a feeling type.

    Maybe 80% of the points sound like they could be applied to my female ISTP friend.

    But of course, with the male/female, T/F thing going on, she could come across more F because she's female and he may indeed be an F or borderline but come across more like a T.

    Default Impulsive car buy

    Speaking of impulsivity, I once bought a new car (Subaru) very quickly. Test drove it one day, did no other research and went back for it the next day. I had it 22 years. It was an impulsive move, but I knew enough to make a good, solid decision.

    As a J, I like to have decisions made rather than stretched out. We bought our last car in a different way: it was a second car and we bought it secondhand. We test drove lots of them, did research, consulted with friends. Ended up with another Subaru (Forester). It wasn't the first car we tested. The roof leaks. Sigh.

    I disagree with that. The ISTP I know is fairly laid-back unless she's challenged, and is generally a pleasant, helpful person. Reserved or quiet, sure, but she's not sarcastic at all. If anything she's a little naive and takes a lot of things too literally.

    It sounds like you're describing an INTP.

    If you want some anecdotal evidence, I do all of these except:

    - He's a generous, giving person, but unscrupulous people will exploit this
    - He has a lot of self-confidence
    - He's VERY poor with money
    - He's a competent office manager
    - He sees the good in people

    He does seem more P than J from what you've described here, although if he really thinks he's an ISTJ he might just be an atypical one.

    But certainly I don't really see ISTPs as always seeing the worst in people. (Though maybe from an F perspective, this appears true.)

    Back to the OP. Your friend sounds like an ISTP, but ISFP is appealing to me now too... And certainly not all xSTJs are bossy all the time. But I'm leaning towards P, especially how you talk about him delaying things.

    I might be wrong with my conclusion that ISTP's see the worst in people but I originally was wondering that it might not be the ISTP trait.

    dude strikes me as an ISFP

    edit: i have a feeling you want to type him as a T because he doesn't have strong Fe. but xxFP wouldn't have strong Fe necessarily.
