    Humble yes, humble and stubborn.

    Challenge an ISTP on something they think they know a lot about, and that stubborn humility comes out. Looks kind of like this ---> :steam:

    Amargith is kinda right, lol.

    My ego thinks I'm the shit at everything. However...I know better than to flaunt my stuff around. I know full well that there are smarter, faster, witter, cuter, etc. people out there than I am.
    I think I'm an ISTP.

    Yeah it's common.

    It's because we're nice peaceful people And we know full well there are people out there who are better than us at X, and we can always improve.

    I think a lot of the reasons I am the way that I am is because I'm hyper aware of how I might come across, and I'd hate to come across as something/someone that annoys me. Being somewhat humble is a positive product of that, although there are a lot of downsides too.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    I don't think they try to be humble, it's that being humble takes less energy than not being humble. Just takes too much effort to show everyone how awesome they are

    ^true.

    I dated an ISTP a few years ago. He played poker professionally and was far removed from being humble about it. He didn't mind taking the energy to show just how awesome he was at it because that's how he paid his bills.
