    Individualistic Doer

    Individualistic Doers are self-assured and very independent people. They are quiet and realistic, very rational, extremely matter of fact people. They strongly cultivate their individualism and enjoy applying their abilities to new tasks. But they are also very spontaneous and impulsive persons who like to follow their sudden inspirations. Individualistic Doers are good and precise observers who register everything which goes on around them. However, they are not so sensitive as regards interpersonal relations and are surprised when they occasionally rub someone up the wrong way with their direct and blunt manner.

    Individualistic Doers enjoy challenges - action and the odd kick are simply part of their life. They love tempting fate and many people of this type have risky hobbies such as skydiving or bungee ...

    Master Craftsman - Code: ISTP
    Say little yet do much. This is the mystique of our master craftsmen. They are rugged individuals who love action- pushing themselves to the limit. Taking great risks makes them feel alive. They are always trying to improve their craft. The attention they get from the outside is not as important as the feeling they get inside. It is their opinion that counts the most to themselves. They have an inner drive to be their best.
    They are competitive in nature and they never stop trying. You may find these people to be athletes, military personnel, pilots, race car drivers, and surgeons. They hate routine and love living on the edge breaking the rules. People like Clint Eastwood- a man of few words. Behind the strong facade is enormous power where actions speak louder than words.

    The single most distinguishing feature of a master craftsman is the unique bond they have with their source of power...a tool/instrument/ or ...

    ISTPs make up 5.5% of the US population.

    ISTPs are observant artisans with a unique ability to master the use and operation of tools, instruments, and equipment. ISTPs are curious and enjoy understanding how things work, but in a practical sense; they like to be able to put their technical understanding to immediate action and are quickly bored by theory. They are good at responding to emergencies and are often thrill-seekers. ISTPs tend to be detached and prefer the logic of mechanical things to the complexity of human emotions. Independent and reserved, ISTPs prefer to have plenty of personal space, and like environments where they are free to be spontaneous and follow their own lead.

    Popular hobbies for an ISTP include magic and comedy, archery, weaponry, hunting, scuba diving, rappelling, aviation, skydiving, motorcycles, and other extreme sports. They are often drawn to risky or thrilling activities and those that allow them to work with something ...

    Mechanically adept
    Cooly rational
    Enjoys activity,
    independence & solitude

    The "laid-back" Performer who coolly and detachedly surveys the world describes the ISTP until...their "button is pushed" and they, with all due speed and gusto, enter the "hands-on" experiencing realm of mechanical devices, race cars and other mechanical vehicles, crisis situations (emergency vehicles), industrial arts, situations requiring facility with numbers or technical data, or emergency situations that require working under pressure.

    ISTPs present a paradoxical picture. They appear to be lazy [there's no other word for it!] but they are really energy-conservers: constant activity does not appeal,
