ISTP: So Pratical

ISTPs are the coolest of the cool. They’re highly adaptable and take life as it comes.

ISTPs see little point in overthinking things or worrying about situations that can’t be changed, so quite simply they don’t. They have a calm demeanour, but they also have a spontaneous side that can surprise people. 

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”

Katharine Hepburn

Give an ISTP a problem and they’ll come up with a solution. They’re masters at figuring things out, especially practical things. ISTPs learn best by trial-and-error and enjoy pulling things apart to see how they work. Using tools and machines comes naturally to this type.

ISTPs apply the same logic they use in other areas of their lives to relationships. If someone doesn’t like them back, they’ll accept it and move on rather than spend countless hours dwelling on it. They value their freedom and can find the irrational nature emotions overwhelming, whether it’s their own or other people’s, which can sometimes cause challenges in relationships.
