Quotes on Steve Jobs – ISTP

Steve: “I’ve always wanted to own and control the primary technology in everything we do.”

Steve: “You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it’s humorous, all the attention to it, because it’s hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that’s happened to me.”

Steve: “It’s not the tools that you have faith in – tools are just tools. They work, or they don’t work. It’s people you have faith in or not. Yeah, sure, I’m still optimistic I mean, I get pessimistic sometimes but not for long.”

Steve: “We made the buttons on the screen look so good you’ll want to lick them.”

Steve: “I’m sorry, it’s true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We’re born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It’s been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much – if at all.”

Steve: “I’m an optimist in the sense that I believe humans are noble and honorable, and some of them are really smart. I have a very optimistic view of individuals.”

Steve: “You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.”

Steve: “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
