ISTPs are great problem-solvers. No task is too hard for an ISTP! They are very resourceful and are able to adapt easily when necessary. They are able to think critically and logically when making decisions, rarely letting their emotions cloud their judgment. When confronted with a problem, ISTPs try to use the information available to make the best decision, hoping for the best. They place a great deal of trust their own judgement, which is based solely off of unbiased logic and reasoning. They have little tolerance for intuitive judgments. Rather, they prefer to evaluate the information available to them and make a decision quickly.
ISTPs have initiative. They are very curious, and want to learn as much as they can about the world around them. Oftentimes, ISTPs become very interested in one topic, and are able to learn a great deal about this topic in a short amount of time. This passion for learning often makes ISTPs very successful in their education, and later, in their careers.
Initially, ISTPs appear to be very reserved. However, once others get to know ISTPs, they are excellent friends. They are accepting of all others, and a rarely judgmental. They are not strong conversationalists, but are great communicators when it comes to working as a team to solve a certain problem.
