No precise correlation exists, to the best of my knowledge, between Enneagram typology and MBTI (and/or variants thereof.) Some plausible
overlaps may help narrow down E-type to fewer choices. Personally,
I would look at E-7 and counter-phobic 6 descriptions and see if anything
seems relevant to ISTP identification. Some might include E-9 in the short
list. the ISTP is referred to as the "Artisan." I believe that implies a
practical approach to how "things work." "Here and now" seems more relevant
than "then and there." ISTPs have many possible avenues of satisfaction.
Some occupations are in service related areas: police, fireman,carpenter,
technology, banking, mechanics, commercial artist. The connections
are immediacy, practicality, service, spontenaity, observation, adventure,
independence, self direction, reality-based, hierarchical. If you are
investigating career paths, I suggest visiting a local community college
and see a guidance/career counselor (for free.) Take a few standardized
aptitude and inclination test; then, discuss the possibilities. That might
provide some insights and alert you to good possibilities you might otherwise overlook. Satisfaction is a major aspect of meaanigful work.
The sky is the limit for everyone; getting on one's own path is a good starting point. You might consider a romance with an ESFJ if you want some
inspiration and passion. Go to Hollister and meet kindred spirits. Enjoy
the journey.
