David West Keirsey

The Crafter Artisan is one of the 16 role variants of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter,[1] a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves. David Keirsey originally described the Crafter role variant; however, a brief summary of the personality types described by Isabel Myers contributed to its development. Crafters correlate with the ISTP Myers-Briggs type.[2]

OverviewEdit

Crafters are tactical operators, concrete in speech and utilitarian in action. In social situations, they are directive and reserved.[2] Crafters are masters at using tools of every type—artistic, technological, martial. Although they are introverts, they are authoritarian in their interactions with others and can be forceful at influencing people. They focus on accomplishing tasks efficiently and skillfully. To master the tool of their interest, ISTPs require a certain degree of seclusion in which to practice. The result is often a virtuosity that other types find difficult to match.[1]

Notable CraftersEdit

For illustrative purposes, Keirsey and his son, David M. Keirsey,[3] have identified well-known individuals whose behavior is consistent with a specific type. Unless otherwise noted, the categorization of the individuals below, whether living or dead, as Crafters is a matter of expert opinion rather than the result of the named individual taking a personality type inventory.
