ISTP / Capricorn


Who is a Virtuoso (ISTP)?

Virtuosos are individuals with the Introverted, Sensing, Thinking and Perceiving personality traits. They tend to be tolerant, flexible and analytical people with an eye for detail. Known for their independence, virtuosos are often seen as observers who make decisions based on objective information, rather than personal beliefs.

Virtuoso/Capricorn excel in problem solving because they are able to absorb large quantities of sensory information and categorize it effectively and efficiently so it is ready to be called upon when needed, even in the heat of a stressful moment. Confident in their knowledge and their abilities, they are the doers in any emergency, ready to dive in and take action. They don’t sit on the sidelines paralyzed by the stress, they move into it. They tend to be very goal orientated and are one of the most self-disciplined personality combos. Many Virtuoso/Capricorns find it natural to set goals, calculate their path to them, and stick to them, and they will work long hard hours to complete what they set out to do. They are known for being extremely disciplined and patient, keeping their eye on the long-term prize. They have the understanding that what they seek is not won in a day, but rather, a long journey; one that takes commitment and dedication.

Common sense and world savvy. The one thing they will never be called is gullible, as this type possesses a keen ability to accurately size up the character and motives of others with striking reliability. People are unlikely to pull one over on them, but if they do, these people will be quite distraught over it, not understanding how they might have been duped. They do particularly well in physical endeavors of various types because they are able to insightfully size up their competition and position themselves properly in order to secure the victory. Flexible and adaptable, they improvise quickly in order to respond to the situation, trusting that their bodies and the instincts will guide them.

Unlike many, Virtuoso/Capricorns aren't likely to fall hard and fast, usually preferring to fall into 'friendship' first. Once friendship is established and they are more comfortable, then if/when physical attraction exists, things progress from there. They make friends slowly and can be seen as somewhat aloof to those not in their inner circle, which of course can pique serious interest in the challenge this presents. Securing their affections may be a slow process but it is just a generic form of getting to know you and feeling comfortable which they need. Once they are interested and at ease, they are steadfast in their need to have a relationship. Virtuoso/Capricorns are very serious minded about their future and security. This makes their choice of mate a serious consideration for them. They are less likely to quickly give in and break up when the going gets tough, as once they've invested time and effort in a relationship they feel morally compelled to stick with it. If the connection is a true one, they will loyally help you to make a life together.
