I try to find decent things to think about, create the most wonderful posts and blog entries only to forget them and kick myself for doing so. I wish for the kicking to stop and I'm not about to carry a notebook around with me.

    Why walk if you can fly and why fly if you can teleport? If you can't teleport of course then you'd best get figuring it out because walking is sooo passe!!

So I have been broken of my serious ways - mostly.
    Don't break your serious ways!!!


    Just have some serious fun

    Personally that's about where I've gotten to. I play an online game in a clan and when they abandoned a game part way through to play "let's stab each other at random" I just shut down the whole game without a word. I just don't feel like that's fun. It produces the same kind of feeling as when people damage stuff just cause they're bored.

    Well.... My missus is a shy ESTP and they do sound quite similar.

    I was making a point about ONE ASPECT of their personality. Xander said Spock was an ISTP and my point was that that is impossible because ISTPs have a "fun side" of their personality that is very prominent. I don't recall Spock ever having any fun at all, even once (though I hate the show and hardly ever watched it - if he did like to have fun, let me know). The object of my explanation was to make ISTPs sound like they are a lot more fun than people seem to think they are. So that's why I made them sound like they are fun. That was the point I was trying to make. It's not their whole profile, It's just one aspect that I believe is very important. Generally speaking, the SPs are the most fun-loving or playful of all types. ISTPs are not as much fun as ESTPs or ESFPs, but they are still fun-needing people.

    It's part of the ISTP profile that ISTPs MUST make work fun. I have the perfect illustration: When my ISTP son was about three years of age, I asked him to quickly go to the kitchen and get me the towel hanging on the refrigerator door to clean up a spill. I expected him to dutifully run, full speed, get the towel and fetch it back double time, as any good, obedient, parent-pleasing child would do (read: as I would have done). Instead, my son immediately dropped down on all fours, and like a dog, went to the kitchen. He came back with the towel in his teeth! This was not amusing to me! I was furious that he did not do it "like he was supposed to". I felt my authority as a parent insulted by his playful behavior. Thank goodness for MBTI. I later learned that this is part of my son's personality. It wasn't a disrespectful personal attack on me, or my authority.

    I have mainly used the profiles by Barron and Tieger to understand my children and they've been very helpful and spot on.
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
    Sorry still sounds ESP to me. Loads of energy. Of course I could understand a high energy ISTP doing that. Hell I'm a high energy INTP, though many would laugh to hear such a description!!

    It's all those fluffy thinking processes you have. Something about INTJs taking a wander through the information until they form a decision. Mine's more like the information is thrown at me ala dodge ball.

    No. Sociopaths are often referred to as appearing harmless like 'the guy next door'.

    Now there's a good probability! My husband's great-grandfather was in the US Civil war and in his exit papers, it says that he sustained injuries that left him unable to work like "half a man" yet he was seen out scything his field at age 89! My husband has the energy of 3 or 4 of me. I would not doubt that your theory is on the right track.

    Ah, yes. My brain takes a wander looking for the correct word, and finding none, it fashions its own from the intent of the context.

    I quite agree with you.
    Who's the idiot who teaches otherwise?!
    That's quite a stretch of imbecilic imagination.

    I cannot be sarcastic anymore, as I have learned to appreciate the SP approach to life - which I have contended is the motivation behind you wanting to ride a skateboard to work.

    MAybe she's a low energy E

    Actually she was trying to type someone last night and was guessing that they were a high energy ISTP. The guy was an MBTI adjudicator (or whatever they call them) and said he was an I and an S, she was guessing on the remainder.

    Not sure that all types of energy are the same but I get your drift. I'm thinking that this kind of energy would be most directly related to presence. If some one has presence then it's probable that they are high energy. Though of course not all presence can be equated to the Brian Blessed school of how to impress people

    How very ENTP of you. (That's a good thing btw)

    I've not heard of it *searching*

    Non warlike imagination... probably not what you were going for

    I get your drift though. I's one of my father's pearls of wisdom. It's quite astounding to me, once I'd heard it, how often it applies. It often forms the basis for excellent checking of logical thought.

    My friend (an ENTP according to him though he's quite quiet) has the perfect motto for this on his email "Do things differently". I doubt it's SP necessarily but it's fun whatever it is. Mind you the most fun loving person I know is an ExFP (probably an S though her test results are 50/50).

My husband has another son from a previous marriage - ENFP - who has the very same sense of humor. Perhaps it is in the DNA.

    Perhaps it would be good for us to remind ourselves at this point that Spock was not human. He had NO feelings. Ts have feelings. We just don't use them as a standard when making decisions.

    I was wondering if anyone thought MacGuyver (80's tv show) is an ISTP. He reminds me of my husband to a great extent - highly resourceful, inventive in a pinch, clever at developing a plan B.

    I know one male ESTP. He is the most selfish human being I know on the face of this earth.
    My husband is the most unselfish human I know.
    My husband is also ISTP. He is very much like ISTP description and he has extremely strong T, quite strong I & S. He is very tough minded person. Very much not trying to please anybody. He might be very different ISTP from your husband and son. But not all ISTP's are alike...

Seriously dude, give it a try (if you can even find a snakeboard - I'm glad I got mine way back in the 90's cos I can't find them for love nor money nowadays!). I used to totally whizz through the 4 miles to work and back on mine a couple of years ago. Now I work only a ten minute walk away, so I don't use it so much, but I still go out on it now and then. Years ago, when lots of my friends used to use them as well, we used to play basketball on them - fast paced and challenging, great fun!

    You can get streetboards easily enough, which are almost the same thing.

    Yeah but yuz one of em extro nasties. You talk to people an stuff! That's just wrong all by itself!



    Oddly the ENTP I know is quite poor at innovation. He's quite stuck in his ways. Odd the variations you get.
