Understanding Virtuoso Personality



Cognitive Functions

Based upon the Jungian personality theory, the test suggests that personality is composed of a number of different cognitive functions. These functions can be focused primarily outward (extraverted) or inward (introverted). Each of these functions relate to how people perceive the world and make decisions.

The dominant function is the most prominent aspect of personality, while the auxiliary function plays a supporting role. The tertiary function has a weaker influence, but can become more apparent when a person is under stress. The inferior function is primarily unconscious and is often a point of weakness.

Developing this aspect can help people form a more balanced personality.

Inferior: Introverted Thinking

  • They spend a great deal of time thinking and dealing with information in their own heads. This means they do not spend a great deal of time expressing themselves verbally, so they are often known as being quiet.
  • It may seem like the They approach to decision-making is very haphazard, yet their actions are actually based upon careful observation and thought.
  • They deal with the world rationally and logically, so they are often focused on things that seem practical and useful.
  • Because they are so logical, They are good at looking at situations in an objective way and avoiding subjective or emotional factors when making decisions. People with this personality type can be difficult to get to know, often because they are focused so much on action and results rather than on emotions

Inferior: Extraverted Sensing

  • They prefer to focus on the present and take on things one day at a time. They often avoid making long-term commitments and would rather focus on the "here and now" rather than think about future plans and possibilities.
  • They tend to be very logical and enjoy learning and understanding how things operate. They might take apart a mechanical device just to see how it works.
  • While they are good at understanding abstract and theoretical information, they are not particularly interested in such things unless they can see some type of practical application.

Inferior: Introverted Intuition

  • This function often operates largely unconsciously in the ISTP personality. While they are not usually interested in abstract ideas, they may take such concepts and try to turn them into action or practical solutions.
  • It is this function that is behind the "gut feelings" that ISTP sometimes experience when making a decision. By synthesizing information brought in by the dominant and auxiliary functions, this aspect of personality may be responsible for sudden aha moments of insight

Inferior: Extraverted Feeling

  • This aspect of personality tends to operate in the background of the ISTP personality, but it can become more apparent during times of stress.
  • During highly charged situations, They can sometimes lash out in sudden outbursts of emotion. They often ignore their own feelings until things reach a boiling over point, which can lead to displaying emotions in ways that can seem inappropriate.

  • They thrive on new experiences and dislike strict routines.
  • In relationships, they are highly independent and do not like to feel controlled.
  • Making commitments is difficult for the ISTP, but will put a lot of effort into relationships that hold their interest.
  • They do not often share their emotions with other people.
  • While they enjoy hearing what other people think, they frequently keep their own opinions to themselves.
  • For this reasons, people sometimes describe Them as difficult to get to know.
  • They often find friends who enjoy similar hobbies that they do and enjoy spending time with these friends as they pursue these activities.

Friendship Tips

  • You can be a great friend by asking them to get out and pursue new things, but be ready to respect their need for peace and quiet when they are not feeling up to going out.

Parental Tips

  • You can encourage their confidence by providing safe and healthy opportunities for them to explore things on their own.
  • Provide rules and guidance, but be careful not to hover.
  • Give your child plenty of hands-on learning, outdoor adventures, and opportunities to experiment with how things work.
