Illustrations of Type – ISTP

Illustrations of Type – ISTP

By Donna Dunning

In my MBTI® Certification workshops participants respond to the instruction – “Describe your type using words, phrases, or pictures.” I find these visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from a group with ISTP personality type preferences.

This is a great illustration showing how they focus on facts and ignore the “fluff”. Of course, this “fluff” can be very important to others, a potential source of conflict. Their objective is using the facts to solve a problem independently, a clear example of using their dominant Introverted Thinking function.

The oak/bamboo analogy nicely shows their use of an in-the-moment, high-pressure, flexible and nimble approach to situations.

You may also enjoy looking at how other ISTP groups have completed this illustration of type exercise.

If you are interested in seeing how people with different type preferences complete this exercise, check out the Illustrations of Type series.
