Description

ISTs are introverted types who get information based on concrete data and make decisions based on values like logical analysis of outcomes. Because ISTs have a tendency toward introversion, they may be fine in work settings around many people but they recharge themselves spending time with others one on one or alone. They are often deep thinkers and more reserved than extroverts, and at times may act as if they would rather be alone than in a meeting or other group setting.

ISTs make sense of the world around them by processing the facts and practical data they observe. They are generally organized, detail-oriented, and good with research. ISTs prefer clear, specific ideas over vague, open-ended ideas with lots of ambiguity.

ISTs can be described as “thinkers” more so than “feelers” when a decision needs to be made. They will think about all of the factual data they’ve observed and revert back to their experiences to help them think through the pros and cons of the outcome of their decisions. They prefer to use critical thinking more so than feelings for the basis of their choices.
