ISTP (Introverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving) is one of the sixteen personality types from personality type systems based on C.G. Jung, which best known are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Keirsey Temperament Sorter and Socionics.

Referring to Keirsey ISTPs belong to the Artisan temperament and are called "Crafter".

In Socionics ISTps belong to the club of the pragmatists, the delta Quadra and are named "Craftsman" or Jean Gabin. Another notation for ISTp is SLI (which is an acronym for Sensory-Logical Intratim, referring to the cognitive functions).

Descriptor Edit

According to the underlying psychological theory, ISTPs are the quiet rebels that do not like to be bothered. ISTPs make fantastic pilots and motorcycle riders because they are so in tune with their environment and are great at dealing with chaos. This is why you will notice that almost all pilots also like to drive motorcycles (see movie Top Gun). What may feel like a dangerous situation to the average person, the ISTP is comfortable dealing with because they tend to remain cool-headed and deal with chaotic situations rationally.

ISTPs are the personality type that pushes the limits of physical achievement and exploration. Anyone that crosses the arctic circle on cross country skis or jumps from a balloon at 80,000 feet could only be an ISTP.
