    Okay, a serious response now.

    - I'm good at teaching
    - I'm a good dancer
    - I'm good at whitewater kayaking
    - I'm okay at running
    - I'm good at fighting (nunchuck skillz for real haha)
    - I'm pretty good at riding a bike in traffic
    - I'm really good at procrasinating
    - I know a lot about a few things

    I'm not as good as I want to be in anything, though. I want to be the best! My girlfriend says I always have to take things to the extremes, and resents that kind of mindset. I'm not the only one, though!

    I was not a mechanical person until I started working with mechanical things. I think any dominant Se can be a "mechanical" type. Once you understand a general mechanical principle of how something works, it can be transferred to many things.

    You have great body awareness, that's certainly mechanical in my opinion, because I have that as well.

    The only physical risks I take are well-calculated. If the risk exceeds my current skill level, or if there is a reasonable risk that I could be seriously injured, then of course I would not take it. That would be nothing more than gambling.

    But if an activity is safe within reason, and has the potential to provide me with an intense and unique sensory experience, I'm down for anything

    -I can configure a PC quickly and optimize the hell out of it.

    -I can turn any PC (Pentium IV or newer) into a DAW (digital audio workstation) wish appropriate software that allows it to make alot of music commensurate with its CPU/RAM power.

    -I can play guitar (acoustic/electric six string, and a little 4-string bass too)

    -I can build structurally sound and usually reasonably attractive furniture with limited tools.

    -I can plan and install an impressive amount of landscaping in a single day

    -I can setup/maintain (healthy) freshwater and saltwater aquariums

    -I can setup an empty apartment/house into a comfortable/functional/visually appealing home in 24 hours or less. I moved every 2 years as a kid since I was an Army brat.

    -I can cook a meal that will impress any variety of tastes. I'm especailly good at making sandwiches, grilling, and recently delved into baking.

    -I can detail a car to be spotless in less than 3 hours.

    -I can clean an entire house (3 bedroom / 2 bath, ~1,500 sq. feet) from wall to wall, and floor to ceiling in under 4 hours, including wash, dry, and fold up to a week's worth of laundry from 4 people.

    -I can walk into a room of strangers and fire up a conversation that entertains all present in less than a minute. I can talk a room of business people into just about anything if I'm charged with being a lead analyst.

    -I am learning to code SQL with reasonable proficiency.

    -I can use top down analysis and design along with other analytical techniques to solve sophisticated problems of a business and/or technical nature with very little background information, and document my findings in such a way that they are self standing and a person with no specific knowledge on the subject could pick up my work and read it from page 1 and understand what is going on and what the final recommendation is.

    -I can squat 275 pounds for 25 strict reps. I can curl 115 pounds for 15 strict reps. I can do 15 reps of 200 pounds on a lat pulldown machine. I can do triceps extensions with a rope on a cable machine with 130 pounds for 12 reps and then decrease the weight 10 pounds at a time doing 10-12 reps all the way don to 80 pounds. I can burn almost 600 calories on an elliptical machine in 35 minutes. I don't bench much since I've had 3 shoulder operations, but I can do 50 pushups at age 35 and 225 pounds.

    That's about it I guess...

    I fit the "mechanical ISTP" stereotype in a lot of ways.

    - I can (and have) hotwire an ATV
    - I can tear apart the dashboard of a company vehicle, while stuck in traffic, in order to fix a broken radio.
    - I'm a pretty good shot with a rifle.
    - I'm not great at it, but I can pick locks.

    - I can save animals.
    Story: the other day I helped out at a yard sale. Signs were posted up using clear packing tape (the kind you stick in a tape gun). The tape was folded over itself in such a way (sloppily) that it left a gap with the sticky sides facing in.

    A salamander made the mistake of somehow getting himself inside the tape during the course of the day, and probably struggled, making it worse and getting himself further stuck. His lower and upper legs, tail, chest, back, and head were all stuck to the tape in a contorted position.

    Armed with a pair of scissors, some strange kitchen utensil (blunt edged scraper), my finger nails, and some water I managed to free his tail, then cut loose his legs, peeled off the tape around his chest and back, freed his front legs, and finally his head without tearing off his flesh or extremities. Then I let him run off and he didn't even thank me. Punk.

    So the skill used there was...improvisation?



    So what are you good at?
    Your description of saving the salamander from a sticky situation ( ) sounds just like my husband. He always manages to figure out exactly the type of tools he needs for something like that by carefully observing and analyzing the situation, then proceeding with much calm and patience to get the job done, no matter how long it takes.

    You would probably be a good surgeon. Ever thought of medical school?

    I am the only person among the women in my house that can fix a plug.

    I can solve very complicated physics problems that most of the people don't even understand.

    Whoa, organizational skills? How you get those?

    I'm of the opinion that the floor is the biggest shelf in my house. Trust me, it shows.

    Regarding risk taking...

    Yeah I think that we are SEEN as risk takers. I engage in activities that seem dangerous to outsiders but for the most part I try to be reasonable about pushing my limit. It's just that my limit is beyond most people. ***EDIT: That sounds cocky huh?***

    Maybe not med school, but since I'm taking a year off college I want to become a volunteer EMT. I could get my EMT-B in less than a month (free training for volunteers) and get to drive ambulances/provide basic care. If I stuck with it, I could become an EMT-I with some time...

    It's an idea I have kicking around in my head. I think I'd be an awesome EMT.

    Or fire fighter. That'd be cool.

    Boo - I missed that story about the salamander. Go you! I'm very impressed! And thank you for saving him. Many people would not have bothered.
