    I'm still relatively paranoid about my profiles on social networking sites. I've gotten much better and finally started using pictures of my face, where before I would only use heavily distorted images.

    I don't like other people to know about my romantic/sexual self, unless its someone I want to stab.
    You seem like a pretty "unique" ISTP, have you ever tested as an ESTP?

She even walked in one time while I was chatting and she was hurt because I had a big smile on my face so I continued to hide and be extremely private.

    I tend to be a good judge of character and the things this other female did made me extremely comfortable that things wouldnt go to far so I trusted her. But i did hide a hole alot of it because I didnt want to cause my wife hurt when we were having problems and I found another female I enjoyed being around.
    Interesting. I do not know how I would feel about this.

    I do not enjoy not making my partner happy. Unless we are fighting, I like to make my partner smile and laugh.

    I enjoy good company so, (when in the mood to socialize), I try my hardest to be good company.

    The ISTP I am intimately acquainted with has recently told me that one of the many reasons why he likes, and continues to like me is that I never bore him, and that I am one of two people, the other being an ESTP close male friend of his, whose company he can stand, or at times even prefers besides hanging out by himself.

It's goes against my usual style, which is to draw the least amount of attention as possible. If a girl needs PDA, she's probably too clingy for me anyway.
    Hahahahaha, wait till you find a girl you really like.

    I don't need PDA, but I like it.

    The ISTP I know loves being physically affectionate, period.

    This is funny, why?

    Just the other day I was talking to an ISTP and he was saying how he felt like stabbing someone each time google, or gmail was telling him he was "working off line" when he wasn't. Later in the conversation he said there was a pile of 15 dead people in his apartment.

    Interesting.

    Not paronoid, but then again I don't do "social networking" sites...in that
    the idea of twitter, facebook and other "social networking medium seems
    absurd to me.
    The ISTP I know agrees with this sentiment, as do I.

    Socializing is not sitting in front of an LCD interacting with text messages,
    socializing is face to face, on a phone and/or interacting with people.
    Interesting.

    And, more specifically, how private are you regarding your romantic/intimate lives/selves?

    Romance? I speak only of me in this context vs. personality type, although someone might come along and say yeh, I identify.

    I don't "get" romance at all, and generally consider it a topic for women and
    metrosexuals. I don't have any patience for soap opera's either.
    Just the other day the ISTP I was talking to went on a tirade about how asinine romantic comedies were/are. "They serve no purpose, they glorify pussy/pathetic "men", and perpetuate nonsensical notions and beliefs in women and girls about an idyllic, and nonexistent form or type of love."
    Showing warmth, and consideration yes...sharing in a mutually enjoyable outing and/or activity yes...I'm an even flow type of individual and more
    so live in the moment.
    Sharing mutually enjoyable acts with the one you love is awesome!

    I'd guess most ISTP men if they were getting married would be more interested in the honeymoon vs. the wedding itself. The one's I've known have often said they'd prefer to skip the wedding part, and just go on the trip.
    I've discussed this with the ISTP, we both feel that having a wedding is a huge waste of money, money that would be better spent elsewhere, i.e. six months traveling the globe.

    Ew.

    Stab as in equate penetrating a female's vagina with your penis/knife?

    Ew.

    I am not going to die if you or anyone else chooses to refrain from sharing your/their thoughts on this topic.

    The severity of this topic is far from being critical, duh.

    I just would like to understand ISTPs better, is that such a crime?

    Why are you here, posting on this forum?

    Do you only post your thoughts/opinions when someone, including yourself, *needs to know*?!?!?

    The concept of spreading one's mystique is kinda oxymoronic. :0

    How private are you?

    Usually very. The only time I will talk about something personal is if it has already passed and is over with. Then I will discuss. But to that point, I don't want anyone knowing anything about anything.

    How paranoid are you guys/gals about your privacy/personal life/internet anonymity being exposed/infringed upon?

    I'm pretty paranoid. I don't like people knowing too much about me or where I am or who I'm with or anything like that. It's not that I'm doing anything wrong - I just like the ability to blend in and fly under the radar. Internet anonymity? I don't think that exists. The internet is the easiest place to lose you anonymity.

    And, more specifically, how private are you regarding your romantic/intimate lives/selves?

    Eek. That goes back to the first question for me. I only discuss things when they are unraveling and they are beyond repair. (because I don't give a shit and I sometimes get stupid and talk - I shouldn't do this and I hate it when I have a moment of weakness like this!) Otherwise I don't discuss and don't like being discussed. There's been times where I have told someone of an issue with a dating situation only to find out that the person is COMPLETELY unaware that me-and-so-and-so are together or have been hooking up. (even tho they interact with us on a daily basis) A lot of this has to do with the fact that if people were more observant they would see what's right in front of them. But most people don't pay attention to undertones. If they did - things would be obvious. So I actually don't think it's worth discussing because things like that are 1) no one's business 2) obvious if you have half a brain.


    I am curious, very curious about this...

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Sometimes, I think ISTPs invented secrets in the first place just to piss everyone off

    I haven't tested ESTP any more than I've tested ISTP or INFP.

    Ew.

    Ew.
    Sounds like you and your ISTP are comfortably in synch.

    What a lucky dude!

    Thanks for sharing his tirade on romantic comedies... That's exactly how
    I feel on the topic and why...

    So what if your ISTPs other person(ESTP) was a female? Thats kinda the predicament I got into. The other person was a female ENFP. As an ISTP we need out of our head about personal stuff and to do that I need things to do. I am a very active person. The activity doesnt have to be movement, I just like doing things.

    We like the company of people, but it needs to be people we can be relaxed and comfortable around and joke and play.

    I am going to answer honestly, here.

    If I absolutely knew that there was NO sexual chemistry between the two of them, I wouldn't care at all.

    This ISTP works closely with a couple of female engineers, some of whom are mildly attractive, I've met them all, and I don't/didn't mind the fact that he spent a lot of time with them.

    BUT, if he were to be spending a lot of time with some hot, attractive girl with whom he could chill/enjoy/relax with, that would be a threat, why?

    Because I am suppose to be that girl, get it?

    He and I often joke about his solitary nature, and I jokingly tell him, well, I think I have the ESTP beat, because he doesn't have a vagina, and he laughs and wholeheartedly agrees.
