Introvert Sensor Thinker Perceiver

ISTP Musician - Haley Williams

ISTPs are of the Sensor-Perceiver or Artisan temperament so there’s usually going to be a strong physical element to their music and performance.

ISTPs are no-nonsense, practical and often sensation-seeking.

They’re very logical and tend to look at the world with an objective lens.

They can create music that ranges from simple and blunt to complex and physically demanding.

Many of the best world’s best athletes are ISTPs and the ISTP musicians who develop their skills can have uncanny physical and mental abilities that include memorizing parts, improvisation and technical performance.

Personality-wise they can range from quiet and polite, such as Alex Skolnick or Timothy B. Schmit to bold and aggressive like Liam Gallagher and Johnny Rotten.
