ISTP personality – The System Builder
There must be order in everything, and to create it, one must use its position!
ISTP personality – the System Builder, loves order and likes to follow the rules and agreements. He is a consistent person that finish everything that he has started. He wants to study a variety of phenomena, to go deeply into the details, and see the connections between different things. He likes to document all this, detailing the facts and writing everything down systematically.
ISTP is familiar with laws and is happy to help others understand them. In general, he sees the world through whether any given situation is right or wrong. The System Deviser can organize work well, establish order and discipline, and he also check that tasks are done.
ISTP is strong-willed, decisive person, and she is difficult to stop if she has decided something and started acting. If they are in a position where they have power or status, they will take full advantage of it to further their agenda. If she deems it necessary, she may criticize the status, appearance, or general lack of discipline of others.
If she regards something as important, she does not compromise or make concessions. The System Builder can be impatient towards the opinions of others, and she does not tolerate arguing. If she has developed her methods, then she would like to see that others also use the same resources to achieve their goals.
When ISTP personality encounters a new situation or meets new people, he leaves the impression of a polite and pleasant person, smiling and communicating charmingly. However, he can’t always remain like that, and he has difficulty dealing with more complex relationship problems. He is relatively closed and will not willingly share his impressions with others. Often, System Builder is also not flexible enough to tolerate the oddities of others.
She finds it difficult to see opportunities opening up or the potentials of other people. ISTP does not often take into account the peculiarities of other individuals. She does not like instability and constant changes; she prefers it when everything runs according to a plan. It is difficult for her to choose between various things and situations, and she trusts official and verified information. To avoid unexpected conditions, she can prepare for numerous occasions very thoroughly, down to the last detail. The other extreme is that she do not prepare at all and just go with the flow.
As ISTP personality is a sharp logician, he will happily take in the feelings of others and is affected by them. However, he cannot distinguish whether the other person’s emotions are genuine or not. That is why he can for example come under the influence of a laughing, crying, or an angry person and accept their message without any critique and happily fulfill their desires. In this case, he does not do that at an intellectual level, but just because the other person’s emotions are influencing him so powerfully.
The System Builder gladly follows fashion and try to dress and behave by the times. She likes traditions, and she will happily support them. ISTP will readily act according to outlined plans, even though she is not the strongest when it comes to planning. She is grateful when someone gives her fashion advice or helps her plan her activities.
ISTP personality rarely pose the question “what to do?”, He just acts without listening to the advice that others may try to offer. He knows very well where it is possible to make money and how to organize his life. He is excellent organizer and executor that is hard-working and conscientious while being demanding of himself, as well as of those, who depend on him.
The System Builder don’t let others interfere in his dealings, for him, doing things is more important than personal relationships. He possesses knowledge, and he knows how to implement it in practice successfully.
All matters relating to his health, sense of security, comfort, and aesthetics get resolved without any effort and without being given much attention. If he finds the room too cool, and it is cold outside, then he just gets up and closes the window without paying attention to it. ISTP personality often stands out thanks to his healthy beauty.
