the ISTP personality traits according to MBTI

The word ISTP stands for = introvert Sensing Thinking perceiving.
The ISTP is an introvert who might prefer to be alone than to accompany a large group of people. The ISTP collects information based on his senses then uses logic to take decisions.

The ISTP is not a good planner, he might not be in control of his life as much as an ISTJ.

the ISTJ personality type according to MBTI

Here are the common personality traits for an ISTJ:

  • The ISTP is interested in facts and takes decisions based on logic
  • The ISTP may like to stay alone every now and then to sort out the new information he perceived about the world
  • the ISTP takes decisions based on facts and solid data rather than on his emotions
  • The ISTP would be a good choice for a technical oriented job
  • As an introvert the ISTP lives within his own internal world

Careers that suits the ISTJ

According to the personality of an ISTJ the following careers best matches his personality:

  • Accountant
  • Engineer
  • Any technical job

The ISTJ personality in relationships

The ISTJ can have relationship problems if he loved an extrovert. While the ISTJ will need some time alone his extrovert partner will always want to hang out with people and in public places.

The ISTJ can be a little harsh because of the way he takes decisions and unless he gets into a relationship with a logical thinker problems might arise.
