    I need to identify the root cause of the strees before I can move on. Usually talking to my SO helps with this - as an INTP he has an amazing knack for picking out the main problem. Once I've done that I have to relax enough to stop my head from spinning so i can work out where I'm going to start sorting myself out.
    I couldn't be more precise than that. That also happens to me. But I also become really inflammable.
    I think that overcoming stress is not that much of a problem.

    I tend not to get inflammable - but I do get spectacular mood swings. I'm more likely to be tearful than anything until I have found the cause.

    The problem for me is not so much overcoming the stress, it's recognising I'm stressed before I get to the state where my head swims. Once I realise I'm stressed I can usually start getting my head straight..

    I get really emotional and can't remember anything when I'm stressed. Luckily, I don't stress that much.

    I put my head in the sand and pretend I have no problems.

    I am ISTP and I think I just realized that I am stressed and/or depressed. We tend to show it in different ways. We also get stressed for different reasons. Our laid back nature causes things that normally stress others out to not bother us. What is stressing me out right now is feeling trapped. There is so much I want to do, but dont know how to do it without allowing others to have the freedom I want them to have. I cant control my anger/irritation anywhere near what I normally can(not very laid back recently.) Also being a stressed/depressed ISTP I am spending way to much time on a computer trying to find the best way to do something so when I finally do it I can get the most out of it(end up being more INTP where I research, but never actually do anything.)

    AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I am so friggin bored right now it is just a matter of time before I finally break the law and try to figure out how to drift(on public roads.)

    Play on gravel or a wet parking lot first, even better....a parking lot covered in snow. (wears your tires a LOT less than on dry road) I suggest not practicing drifting on public roads until after you've practiced in an environment where screwing up doesn't equal car damage for a while. Mostly, because if you're going to learn to drift, you also need to learn what to do to recover from losing it. (I even intentionally took my car into spins and such to learn what methods were most effective at recovering.)

    EDIT: Sorry for the off-topic.

    This has been my experience with my ISTP ex as well, although I would say that his becoming more sarcastic and blunt than usual just translated to me as his being more mean!!!

    -If possible, I try to get away from whatever's causing it for a while, and figure out how to fix the problem/"escape" for a bit.
    Grrrr, I have experienced this, too.

    I would want to sit there and get through our argument while he would say how he just needed time to separate and clear his mind.

    I did learn, a bit too late, I think, to give him ample space whenever he became frustrated, I would just see/know the early signs, and go in the other room, read a book, or go for a walk, and let him figure his shit out.

    I find that if I get frustrated or stressed I need to nip that shit in the bud.

    If I end up with time to think about stuff, it ends up stressing me out more, and I don't have time for that. This annoys most around me, because for some reason unknown to me, they like to stew on ill feelings and internalize until it eats them up.

    Not me, no way, no how.

    Figure out what the problem is, figure out what the solution is, move forward, pretty much how I deal with everything in life.

    In my observation:

    - The 2 ISTPs in my life tend to overindulge in alcohol when stressed to the point where it became an issue of chronic chemical dependency.
    - The ESFPs tend to start ignoring their responsibilities and putting things off to past the very last minute.
    - The ISFPs internalize everything, only they don't complain so nobody knows something is wrong until they become physically ill.

    The reason I try to avoid keeping alcohol around. I'm not good at moderation when stressed, so keeping it away from me works well, as otherwise I'd be like the ISTPs you know. (I've also done other insane things when "stressed-out", like ski non-stop for 13 hours).
