    More thoughts on this...

    I think it only comes off as an intense experience for other people. From my perspective, the feeling is more like cold fire in the soul, it is wild and undominatable. when i focus on something, there is nothing that would surprise me and my prey has no escape. the attitude is undisplacable, but also unpredictible... and ultimately my default state, so i personally wouldnt describe it as intense at all.

    i have never been "hunted" so how this appears to other people I couldn't say... intense might definitely be the word to describe it, though.

    Intense? Maybe. Attentive - sure.

    Attention involves three components:

    - Bringing the subject to mind
    - Extracting from the subject
    - Awareness

    In ISTPs, attention would be:
    - Looking around and seeing the object, then consciously bringing it to mind.
    - Extracting: observing and watching.
    - paying attention to the process, all in real time.

    Oh, and I like this quote from William James who wrote at length about attention (and many other topics in psychology).


    "There is unquestionably a great native variety among individuals in the type of their attention. Some of us are naturally scatter-brained, and others follow easily a train of connected thoughts without temptation to swerve aside to other subjects. This seems to depend on a difference between individuals in the type of their field of consciousness. In some persons this is highly focalized and concentrated, and the focal ideas predominate in determining association. In others we must suppose the margin to be brighter, and to be filled with something like meteoric showers of images, which strike into it at random, displacing the focal ideas, and carrying association in their own direction. Persons of the latter type find their attention wandering every minute, and must bring it back by a voluntary pull. The others sink into a subject of meditation deeply, and, when interrupted, are 'lost' for a moment before they come back to the outer world."

    Read full chapter here.

    Naked Twister, bringin' peeplez togevah.

    Personally, I'd be interested to see what an ISTP "looks" like when plagued by a nemesis. As much as I have thrived on having arch-nemeses myself, it would stand to reason that T primaries would benefit from such uncontrollable forces.

    What's the point of a nemesis? How did you thrive from it?

    I think I had a nemesis once. Or rather, I was her nemesis for some reason. ....

    ....Okay fine. :rolli: I know why, but I don't feel all that responsible. -Coincidentally- I dated two of her ex's in a row in high school. I recognized the coincidence, but it was not intentional, therefore I didn't really think much of it. We just happened to have the same taste . She would try to stir me up but I'd avoid any and all confrontations with her because I doubted any good could come from it. Her harassment was highly annoying. But that was just one of many situations that made me become so good at avoiding things

    Anyways, I think ISTPs have some major self control in that aspect. When I -know- people are trying to get some kind of negative reaction from me, I will dig my heels in and absolutely refuse to give them what they want. It's like an immediate instinct to resist.
