    Generally speaking no.

    fairly easily distracted/bothered, not sure what the average person is like though.

    I'm very bothered by clutter but I tend to create it.

    I kinda like bright colors in interiors or elsewhere. I got this 70's road bike that's green (a little brighter really) and I think it's awesome. . .

    Noise can bother me. Mostly people talking, music isn't so bad.

    Junk...well, it wouldn't be fair of me to be so uptight about that.

    (assuming you meant 'sensitive' as in 'easily bothered by' and not 'observant of'.)
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I actually love bright colors, especially the neon versions of blue, red, and green. I've always loved them. As for sounds, they don't really bother me unless it's an annoying loud or repetitive noise. I enjoy good music very much. Junk scattered everywhere? If it wasn't mine, honestly I wouldn't care. If it was, then I'd probably want to clear it up to make it less scattered.

    Hm...yeah, I mean it really depends. Sometimes something will be annoying, but other times it won't. Most of the time I'm pretty indifferent to everything, but from time to time something will really get on my nerves. It's usually sounds, definitely. It'll be like I'm not in the mood for energy, and everyone is hyper...ugh.

    I'm pretty sensitive to environmental noise. I find it difficult to study if there's a television or radio on.

    Other than that, not really.

    I'm not an ISTP but, yes, I am very sensitive to noise, light touch, smells, lots of garish colors... I have a lot of trouble following a conversation if there is competing noise, especially if there's other conversations going. I cannot read or concentrate if there's a television on or if there is music with lyrics. If the music is light and instrumental only, I can concentrate on a book or newspaper, etc. I have been tested and found to have central auditory processing disorder, hyperacusis, and sensory integration disorder.

    Nope. If anything, I think I ignore it better than most people. I'm very sensitive to extremely strong smells (like walking into a candle store), but that's more because it causes an allergic reaction in me for some reason. Other than that, I can ignore anything and am not bothered by much.

    Noises dont bother me, if you catch me home alone more than likely the radio is up so loud I cant hear much of anything else. Bright colors dont bother me either. I have no problems with girly decorations, flowers, etc. Clutter is fine, I am very good at hunting for things
