Your preference is Introversion

    As an Introvert you get your energy from time spent alone or within small groups. This is not to say you don't enjoy the company of others, you do, although you may find it psychologically draining at times. So, whenever you are feeling down, tired or strained, take some time out and take advantage of this knowledge. For example, if you are at a large event, make sure you take regular breaks and spend a few minutes by yourself, it will help you restore your energy and continue to enjoy the rest of the evening.

                          Your top 3 Challenges

                          • UNPREDICTABLE

                            ISTPs are not into longer-term planning, which means those around them never know which direction they are going to take.

                          • RISK-TAKER

                            ISTPs are big risk takers, and this can end up in getting great rewards or suffering big losses. This may be challenging for the people who love them.

                          • UNCONVENTIONAL

                            ISTPs prefer doing rather than sitting in a class studying, and this can be challenging during their academic years.

                          • We can all bury our heads in the sand or take action, what do you want to do?

                          What FINANCES mean for your type

                          You are part of the Explorers Group and for you money equals freedom to do whatever you please.

                          This means that sometimes you don't realise how much you are spending. 

                          Be smarter with your financial decisions and you’ll avoid having to work harder.  All this is possible with the tools, workbooks and Financial Freedom calculators all available within Limitless Success.


                          Utilise your endless energy and observant nature. Take inspiration from good savers and investors around you and build a network to share wealth building ideas. This will make things interesting!


                            Forget to look at the big picture.

                            Your carefree nature and the fact that you prefer living in the here-and-now don't mean that you can also think about the future from time to time.

                            Are you looking to develop the best version of yourself?  If so, you're in the right place
