Wow.... it's really crazy how this typology stuff works, sometimes. Oh, and yeah.. traveling is the greatest thing in the world to me. For a while, on a whim, I thought I'd go be a flight attendant after college before I hopped into a real career. However... I don't think customer service is my strong point I was a little worried about what I'd do to people that annoyed me.
I just saw this and thought of the guy who got pissed off, grabbed a beer, and jumped out of the emergency exit!
you guys sound more exciting than most extroverts.
i reallyyyy want to skydive. just need to put out the money and the courage. that wingsuit thing is epic, too
anyway. around here we have black widows, so my rule is to kill pudgy black spiders and take good care of anything else.
huh. it just occurred to me that i'm nearly 100% sure my best friend in middle school was an ISTP. she loved classical music... and she was the only chick i have ever known who could eat 2 entire pizzas all by herself!
I have to reply to this thread if only to insist that ISTP women are not tomboys. I always loved makeup and when I decide to dress up I can rock the Audrey Hepburn look like nothing else!
I was a ballroom dance instructor, a house-remodeling junkie, and now I'm back to engineering. (My B.S. was in ME)
At work I am aggressive because I have to solve problems, and I'm sharp and no-nonsense. I don't do drama of any kind, and I hate people who make up reasons to get their feelings hurt. Thank God I work in engineering so I don't have to deal with lots of women all day.
The most common phrases that come out of my mouth several times a day are "I don't care", "I don't give a shit", "That shit ain't happening" and "I need a drink, STAT."
I think the reason I hate them so much is because they tend to "butter me up" or act like we are friends, in order to sell me something. It feels dishonest and I'm naturally very suspicious anyway. On top of that I have to deal with salespeople all day who have zero technical knowledge, and yet they are selling a product that I have to support.
Their routine goes something like this:
"LOOK WHAT I SOLD! I am soooo awesome! Now figure out how to make that work." (usually this involves something that defies the laws of physics.)
I'm friendly when selling because I'm friendly to EVERYONE, whether I'm trying to sell them something or not... I just am naturally that way... I send my ISTP coworker to answer any technical questions... he can give enthusiastic imprompteau lectures on product knowlege... I'm not good with details

Yeah, I already know that I don't understand extroverts. As I said I have trust issues, i think it colors how i view all my interactions. lol "This guy just gave me a compliment. I bet he wants me to buy something useless and expensive!"
Or maybe it's just paranoia...
The sales boss called me yesterday and said "call this rep and explain that technical stuff you were saying to me"... so I go "ok, but I'm warning you that given the requirements he sent over here, THAT SHIT AIN'T HAPPENING".
Sales boss says to me "Now, be nice, he's a good rep"
I was perfectly polite and even gave the rep what he wanted in the end, so now they think we are good friends...and naturally I feel reluctant. LMAO
