I had the Step II administered to me many years ago. This test is about as close as I have come to any that closely resembled the Step II that had taken almost ten years ago. My results:
4% Extraversion - 17% Introversion (CLEAR)
22% Sensing (CLEAR) - 4% Intuition
22% Thinking (CLEAR) - 2% Feeling
3% Judging - 19% Perceiving (CLEAR)
Potential Areas for Growth
Sometimes life circumstances have not supported ISTPs in the development and expression of their Sensing and Thinking preferences.
• If they have not developed their Sensing, ISTPs may have no reliable way of getting accurate data about the external world or of translating their thoughts into action.
• If they have not developed their Thinking, they may get caught up in the realities around them. and not take time to do the internal logical processing they need to make good decisions. Then their actions may be haphazard responses to immediate needs
If ISTPs do not find a place where they can use their gifts and be appreciated for their contributions, they usually feel frustrated and may
• Become cynical and negative critics
• Withdraw their attention and energy
• Postpone decisions
It is natural for ISTPs to give less attention to their non- preferred Feeling and Intuitive parts. If they neglect these too much, however, they may
• Overlook others' emotional needs and values
• Not give sufficient weight to the impacts of their decisions on others
• Focus so intently on immediate results that they lose track of the long-term ramifications of their decisions and actions
Under great stress, ISTPs may erupt outwardly in inappropriate displays of emotion. The resulting explosive anger or hurt tearfulness is quite unnerving to others and embarrassing to the usually calm and controlled ISTP.
