ISTP's (Myers Briggs) - What do you do for a living?

Asked by lilikoi (10105points) January 17th, 2010

I am amidst a career change. I’ve read all about personality types and have seen a lot of lists of careers preferred by this type. Would like to know what other people of this type are actually doing for a living and what are your hobbies?

Does ESTP count or are we too different?

@Rachienz I’m ESTP too and it’s too different: we’re extroverted and social while ISTPs are introverted and need more time alone. But if it counts, I work in sales/financial services.

Now that I think about it more I think you’re right. Careers that apply to E vs I would probably be very different…

I’m an ISTP. I studied Chemistry in college but worked most of my life as a mechanical engineer developing machinery and robotics for electronics manufacturing processes. I switched over 15 years ago as the Internet was becoming a known commodity within the engineering community and started building Web sites. I love it. I’m also slowly putting together a first novel. If that hits big, I would love writing even more.

ISTP here.

I earn a living as a database developer, database administrator, computer network administrator and IT support guy.

My hobbies are photography and acoustic guitar. I have sold photographs, my guitar playing is just for fun.

ENFP here. I push carts, but I’m looking for a job in public relations or similar.

I am INTJ (not too similar). However, we have the I and T in common. I’m not sure this will help but, I am in graduate school. I am going to be a sociology professor.
I looked up jobs for ISTP and found this list:
