ISTP / Leo
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/Leo is an interesting combo who prefer to solve problems off the cuff; thinking about the best possible way that utilises the least amount of effort. They are flexible and adaptable people who are comfortable with change, in fact, they enjoy it. They do not like traditional policies and procedures that they feel stifle them and often try to get around the rules to achieve higher efficiency. They prefer roles that require them to apply their analytical and logical thinking to solve a variety of practical problems. They tend to shy away from dealing with people’s emotions or personal problems, which they feel are unnecessary and tiring to deal with. They often are able to bring warmth, light and life into the lives of those that surround them. Their natural charisma and dignity will often draw other people to them. They thrive on flattery compliments and most of them will have an innocent quality to them. They like to amass wealth and choose jobs that have a great salary and allow them to lead. Conversely, they often don't do well in situations where they have to take orders from other people.
These are action-oriented people. They like to be up and about, doing things. They are not people to sit behind a desk all day and do long-range planning. Adaptable and spontaneous, they respond to what is immediately before them. They usually have strong technical skills, and can be effective technical leaders. They focus on details and practical things. They have an excellent sense of expediency and grasp of the details which enables them to make quick, effective decisions. Virtuoso/Leos avoid making judgments based on personal values - they feel that judgments and decisions should be made impartially, based on the fact. They are not naturally tuned in to how they are affecting others. They do not pay attention to their own feelings, and even distrust them and try to ignore them, because they have difficulty distinguishing between emotional reactions and value judgments. This may be a problem area for many of them.
Once in love or committed, Virtuoso/Leos are very stubbornly loyal and will do anything to protect and encourage their beloved. The negative of this is that they are less likely to walk away when a situation turns toxic, thinking it beneath them to just "quit" and leaving themselves open to being manipulated and used.They are very sensitive and need nurturing to truly blossom. When they feel their love and loyalty is reciprocated, that they are safe from being used and betrayed, that is when the beautiful part begins. They then will blossom and share more of themselves openly with their partner. They don’t want to allow themselves to become controlled by emotions, instead they want to focus on logic and reason. This is part of what makes them less romantic, but that doesn’t mean they don’t experience deep emotions, especially when they fall in love with someone. Virtuoso/Leo might put on the appearance that they aren’t ones for romance and fluffy feelings, but when they are alone with someone special they can certainly be capable of more than what they seem to be on the outside.
