    I LOVE meat. I can't imagine living without it. That's all I know. As far as that being related to my personality traits, I have no idea. I like vegetables too so I guess I like both but I'm more likely to choose something meaty to eat than veggie-ish. If I HAD to choose one or the other I'd pick meat.

    when you think herbivore, think: writer, artist, teacher, massage therapist, tea shop owner, pediatrician
    when you think carnivore, think: entrepreneur, doctor, athlete, overachiever, dare devil. lawyer

    anyone can be either, but there are some loose correlations
    correlated with herbivore:
    - women
    - NFs
    - 2s, 9s
    - Self Preservation Instinct

    correlated with carnivore:
    - men
    - NTs and SPs
    - 3s, 8s
    - Sexual Instinct (especially Sx/So)

    Herbivores may struggle with: motivation, discipline, focus
    Carnivores may struggle with: self control, patience, cooperation
    I'm mostly carnivorous and what you say works for me. i don't remember the last time I ate a vegetable.

    it's not about your diet lol (mine is like 95% meat and I have an herbivore personality lol)
    personally you seem about 50/50 to me.
    - half of you being lazy, low key, wanting to sit around all day
    and the other half
    - intensity junky, thrill seeker, passionate love maker
    ISTPs as a whole tend to exhibit traits of both (as opposed to ESTPs who are pretty carnivorous)

    Leave it to the Sensors to start talking about meat and vegetables.

    I eat meat constantly - I can't live without my meat. But I'm an NF, which seemed a little off. Interesting theory!

    I definitely answered this poll too quickly. I thought you were talking about meat eater vs. vegetarian.

    Given what the question was really about, I'd say I'm mostly a herbivore. I associate with certain traits of the carnivore, however.

    Herbivore (8/9):
    - cooperative
    - slow paced
    - generally mild mannered, but can be aggressive if attacked
    - wants a simple, easy life
    - motivated by comfort and pleasure
    - enjoy harmony and peace and quiet
    - relaxed, friendly and approachable
    - have difficulty focusing intensely for long periods of time
    - often freeze up or flee from adversity

    Carnivore (4/9):
    - intense
    - competitive
    - fast paced
    - conscientious
    - aggressive/passionate
    - hierarchical
    - action oriented
    - goal oriented
    - seek challenge and intense intellectual stimulation, without which they become easily bored
