ISTPs that are not "badass"?

okay how would you like to describe a "badass"? because this is the definition of badass. and while i would NEVER refer to myself as such, i DO fit that description.

ISTPs are generally tough and resilient, calculated risk takers. we often do things that most others would be fearful of, not because we're dumbasses, but because we're aware of our surroundings and know that when we do partake in a particular task, we are confident in our ability to figure it out.

Some of us have absolutely none though to the extent we avoid a lot of situations and hide behind stoicism. Not sure if this is an ISTP thing or just something others see in us.

sounds like underdeveloped Fe or autism. i certainly have emotions, i just don't let them dictate my life.
