    Default Am I ISTP?

    The deltas are telling me that I dont sound too much like an ISTP. I have tested ISTP 85% of the time with the occasional ISFP and INTP. When I was young I could make tons of friends within a couple minutes but it seems im more conscious about it as an adult. Im a natural at computers and can learn it without reading books and only attending class lectures. in the past ive been into counterculture stuff like conspiracy theories and the occult. I only really feel alive if im doing something risky like driving really fast, smoking weed, and getting really hammered and out of control. I never make plans and always wait for others to make the plans. Im in and out of college and never really accomplish anything there. Im pretty easy going but once people push me far enough, everyone will back off cause i have the worst temper ever. i dont know let me know what you think...

    If you took an MBTI test, then the first thing that comes to mind is: J/P switch, you're likely an ISTj. (While there's some debate about whether it's normal, it's definitely common for your MBTI typing to be reversed on J/P from your Socionic type.) The information you provided here also fits ISTj better than ISTp - indeed I'd say that it fits ISTj best, with ESTp second.

    I dont know about ESTP. For the first couple years of life, the doctors actually did deaf/mute tests on me cause i didnt talk. My mom said im not mute cause I would ask her to carry me and feed me all the time. Most of my life ive been shy around strangers and a big bully to co-workers, friends, and family.

    OK, not ESTp. ISTj seems pretty certain...

    Im not to certain about ISTJ either. When I was young my dad use to say I was a grasshopper cause I wouldnt stop jumping off the bed and nightstands all the time. Looking at my youth, its showing more ISTP dont you think? Maybe not the most typical ISTP

    I think the answers for the ISTp are all "yes."

    The soap thing refers to the tread by Slacker Mom:
    Poll: Would you call this "stealing"?

    I don't think you're ISTp.

    Beta ST seems very plausible and ISTj is my best guess at the moment.

    OK... you're saying you have to be P because you have that strange behavior? That's where MBTI differs from Socionics: in MBTI, J/P is about how you interact with the world, whereas in Socionics, j/p is about how you usually think. An ISTj's base function is , which is very structured, but doesn't easily interact with the world; his second function is , which is not very structured, but is very simple to apply to the world.

    I'm not sure whether jumping off the bed and nightstands should be considered evidence of Static... anyone else want to comment on this? (I can sort of see it from the Pe/Je divide... with the Dynamic types caring more about how they get what they want, and the Static types making a beeline for it.)

    ok thanks! I missed Slacker Mom's soap thread. . So, ISTps wouldn't steal soap? What about the little personal sized ones? I think that'd be ok. But clearly not anything full sized or taking anything from the maid's cart! Taking towels would be a big no no.

    I think that quiz has to be a joke...

    Well, the strongest opponent to walking off with anything that came with the hotel room (including the little personal-sized soaps) was an SLI.

    I read the opening post and would guess that these types wouldn't surprise me:
