Interviews are useful for familiarizing yourself with the visual and temperamental aspects of different types.  Notice Ben’s facial expressions, eye movements, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, and responses to others.  Over time, you will recognize similar patterns in other ISTPs.


Although not as immediately apparent as in interviews, a person’s type shines through in the work they create as well.  Notice the content, themes, and approach Ben uses in selecting his projects.  What light can this shed on the mind of ISTPs in general?
