With a compelling drive to understand how and why things work, ISTPs are action-oriented doers focused on the present. They are practical, realistic, and possess an excellent ability to apply logic and reason. They are masters of tools from the microscopic drill to the supersonic jet, and they are happiest in careers that allow them to use technical skills and tools to problem solve, troubleshoot, or manage a crisis. As leaders, ISTPs are usually up-front leading the charge. ISTPs make up 5.4 percent of the U.S. population.
