    I enjoy being the goofy loony one sometimes in a group of friends, lightens the atmosphere and is a great stress reliever.
    Can we get an example?

    I think a lot o fthe things people have mentioned are very well within their type. I can't think of anyting I do or any hobby that is totally atypical for my type or first 4 cognitive functions. Then again, I have a pretty random type and I'm Fi dom. Anything seemingly out of place could be chalked up to Fi.

    I'm a 4th year university student and I've had work experience in Public Relations, plus I've got more to come this summer. I may end up working at it, depending on how that goes. I can't think of a more atypical job for an ISTJ!
    I also used to do journalism and had to interview loads of people.

    I work in psychology.. in fact, I live and breathe it, too. Apparently, I'm not supposed to care about other people at all

    ^^ I have a very regimented ISTJ friend and she wants to do events planning. She's super social and even outgoing. I think the practical and common sense thinking can be a huge boon for public relations when you understand social EXPECATIONS and RULES.

    Go on, defy stereotypes!

    Thanks And I think you might be right... I also read somewhere that the best PR people are those that can think about all the possibilities, including negative, so that kind of factors in too.

    I feel the same way. I remember telling my dad I enrolled into Auto Tech senior year and my mother going "Heavens why do you want to do that?!" 'So I can fix my own car, mom..' "......You're not my daughter, that's for sure." Its true too!! her tire flattened, and before I even had time to pull the tire iron out and drive up the road three men had stopped for her and started jumping all over the opportunity.

    Thatgirl has this in common as well. It's funny because I long for men to think of me outside of that traditional role.. it seems destined that if we want something, we get something else.

    That's a very good idea, though. There are still some mechanics out there who will try to screw women over when they take their cars to get fixed because the mechanics think the women don't know anything about cars. Wouldn't it be a surprise to tell them off for trying to swindle you when you know what's wrong better than they did?

    I've already come across a situation like that. An engine mount on my Escort is missing, so the engine shakes when it's on, and one of the pulleys is screwy so it makes a squeeking noise.. Some mechanic told me that he'd have to order the parts for and attempt to replace every wheel on the pulley system for the belt one at a time to see which one is causing the squeek. You think that sounds good until you realize they try charging you for multiple parts, later on saying it was two wheels that were the issue, because they don't wanna return parts.. but more likely, they already know which wheel is more likely on that model, and they're just giving you a run. I'm like "... Uhh.. Yeah, well, 800 dollars worth of labor charges later since my car needs to be driving for at least 20 minutes for the squeek to start from cool.. I'll pass."

    And several times they'll be like "Your ___ is a little low, would you like me to fix that while we're at it all?" "No. I checked it this morning and it's fine, if it's still bad tomorrow when I check I'll replace it myself." Seriously, they try to throw in all sorts of details when I just go in there for the basics. If I wanted my windshield wipers replaced, I'd just go do it!! :steam:
