Practical Analyzers support their analytical decisions with a focus on facts and realities. The resulting combination leads to an interest in improvisation and practical problem solving.
The following list describes typical characteristics and preferences of people who prefer ISTP. Identify the items that are true for you so you can seek work that suits who you are.
As a Practical Analyzer, I prefer a work environment that is:
- Hands-on and/or outdoors
- Geared toward tight timelines
- Focused on practical problem solving
- Focused on an immediate and perhaps risky response to a crisis
- Conducive to my being autonomous
- A source of varied activities
- Fun and playful
- Physically challenging
There is also a general list of work preferences for both ISTPs and INTPs at Analyzers at Work that will help you figure out your natural way of working.
