    I went camping and fishing there, and I took a dip in an icey creek. That part of the story is true.

    You mentioned defeat. What was the purpose of this exercise?

    A bear and a jaguar having a stare-down.

Then, it ends up standing on two feet to raise itself up towards a pine tree in a sunny glen of the woods, and it reaches up to the tree to find any type of food source, or so it appears. But from a second glance, up on a large bough of the pine tree, there is a little bear cub sitting on it, and it ends up climbing off of the tree and walks over to it's mama, and the big mama bear brings its little cub away from the area, and leaves me alone.

If I'm playing along, though, the bear is large and brown, probably a Grizzly. He rears slightly with a growl. Im close enough to see the foam on his muzzle. I feel more awe than fear. I don't move. The bear can outrun me, so trying to escape would be useless. Fighting him might be the only chance I have, but even that is a fairly bleak prospect. My only hope is that the bear loses interest and goes away on his own. I wait to see what is the bear's next move.

His head is cocked to one side and the bear faces me squarely, chews one time. My palms break out in sweaty nervousness but I slowly start backing away, still facing the bear. It turns and runs into the undergrowth.

The bear is shaggy, with interlaced brown and black hairs draped over a powerful, muscular frame. I stay very quiet, hoping that by keeping still, the bear will pass without either noticing me, or considering me a threat to its cubs. After the bears move onward, I continue my journey, perhaps a little more alert to my surroundings.

    She is unaware of me. She is strolling along, looking for something, maybe food.

    I creep away quietly & leave her in peace.

    I meant that if instead of going with your first instinct, you instead made something up to be more creative, that might defeat the purpose of the exercise.



    I dunno, maybe it still worked for you anyway. In any case, it made for a cool story.

    I keep on walking, barely noticing the creature. It desperately scrambles to clear the path ahead of me, trying to gain the favour I will never grant it.

    EDIT: Ah, well there's no such thing as something that challenges an ESTP, so I guess it makes sense. Even other ESTPs don't challenge ESTPs.

    @Ginkgo: You skipped over some of us. Are you saving the best for last or was that Fe fail?

    @Nerd Girl, I'd say best for last.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    it's a big, brown bear. i see it from a distance walking around, and sneak off as quietly as possible trying to avoid it spotting me.

    haha this was very accurate. avoid avoid avoid.
