This is a discussion on Fictional ISTPs within the ISTP Forum - The Mechanics forums, part of the SP's Temperament Forum- The Creators category; I was wondering if anyone ever saw/heard of/read about a character and then said to themselves, "Hey, that's an ISTP." ...

    Fictional ISTPs

    I was wondering if anyone ever saw/heard of/read about a character and then said to themselves, "Hey, that's an ISTP." or something to that extent. Feel free to explain why, or just list them here and leave us to draw our own conclusions.

    Who first came to mind for me was Sherlock Holmes, who I think is a combination ISTP/INTP, but I'd say he leans more towards the ISTP side. He's obviously introverted, as he keeps to himself most of the time unless faced with a client. He's perfectly fine with entertaining himself with thoughts, figuring out how things work, inventions and whatnot, which reminds me of the mechanical side of the ISTP. He's a logical thinker and has a hard time getting in touch with his feeling side, sometimes appearing cold to others and having a hard time with emotions (I recall in the BBC show many times where he got suddenly angry straight from his super-calm persona unexpectedly, even though he tries to keep a calm, keen mind.) His P side is reflected through his messy room and unconventional ways of thinking/doing things (sneaking into someone's house to look for clues). As for sensing, I think he leans more towards S because he points out very small details and can collect many different facts...but his N side puts them all together to see the big picture and make theories.

    Actually, this board here supports Holmes being an ISTP quite well: http://personalitycafe.com/istp-foru...l-analyst.html

    ESTP - The Doers


    actually I'm sorta starting to think any kind of "superhero" is portrayed as an ISTP many times. James bond in casino royale, splinter cell, uh almost every famous asian martial artist. Maybe even Mr. incredible?

    I also think most action "heroes" are portrayed as ISTP's.

    Definitely Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell. Perhaps Tommy Vercetti from GTA: Vice City.

    What about the main 'bad guy' (the blond one) from Avatar? I thought "ISTP" ... maybe I'm wrong though?

    Hmm actually maybe I'm too obsessed with Myers Briggs :-S

    Yeah, for sure. I think James Cameron himself may even be an ISTP. Ripley from aliens.
