    That seems to be a typical ISTP thing too! From what I hear, they have to drink a lot to be and stay drunk

My advice to anyone else dating would be to fight the urge to ask these types of unnecessary questions. Put yourself in the other persons shoes. Would you want to be put on the spot and asked the question you are about to ask someone else? God no!!!

    I got to be honest, if a guy starts asking me personal ex-BF questions, it will suddenly rob me of my positive emotions for them. Why? because I'll interpret that as an insecurity... not attractive! I'll also be wondering why the person is thinking about my ex-BF's past and not focusing on me in the present moment.
    First of all your opinion is just that, an opinion, not wisdom.

    Secondly, it does open the door for some good conversation.

    I guess it really depends on the person you are talking with, why they are asking and their intentions with that information. I can see that under certain circumstances it could be seen as insecurity by the person asking but it also shows insecurity by not answering.

    Very true. This ultimately determines whether or not I and probably most ISTP's disclose anything. It really is subjective to the person asking.

    Depends on your ISTP. I'd say we tend to fall into one of two groups.

    1. Like to drink and get drunk because it loosens us up and lets us overcome certain mental blocks we have.
    2. Don't like to drink and/or get drunk because it loosens our mouths, and we too strongly like to keep our thoughts to ourself.

    Also, on a slightly unrelated note, I could be wrong, but.....I think ISTP's may have an above average tolerance generally (we might still drink a ton making it irrelevant though), because we have some very strong control over ourselves normally.

    If they like you, they come back to you.

    If they love you, they stay.
    Agreed. Trying to "close your grasp" on us, will just make us bolt for the door in a hurry.

    I'm drinking right now and making fun of someone on my MSn who I dislike it feels good. lol I think sometimes you have to let go of your logical side a bit...stop thinking....and project emotions.

    ISTP's are very good and open about projecting emotion at annoying nemisis.

    I'd agree with that. I've always switched between the two for extended periods of time. It depends on what I'm going through. And I don't think it's that we literally have a higher tolerance, but we just have a better "mind over matter" ability than others. So pretty much what you said... we have very strong control over ourselves.

    Edit: .... when we want to.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    You would be suprised what we notice. 99% of a relationship to an ISTP is not out in the open. We work to balance the NF/ST difference. We try to absorb that difference in emotional intensity as much as we can. While we may not always know why others are really emotional and have an average EQ, Our EQ is almost 100% from emotional stability. We are specialized in this one field. We will use our stability to absorb emotions from others as best we can. We will absorb good as well as bad. Eventually it works its way back out.

I figure I can just hide or get away for a while when I need to. I can't really fathom feeling caged in.
    SPs learn from experience. While we can read and study as much as possible, we are a type that until we do it hands on you dont learn all the little nuances that appear. In the world of computers its called undocumented features With just theory we feel lost, we know that theory is just an educated guess.

    I never really think a relationship can't be fine if its taken moment to moment. Though it is difficult for me to live like that, I feel like if the people around me just take it easy & don't get crazy or panicky on me, I will never really have any reason to abandon them. I think the ISTPs I know get this too. Most of their relationships seem to end when people just get paranoid that they are driving them away... and then they drive them away.
    We know how to make people panicky and wont do it on purpose just to drive you away. This is one of my flaws, but also one of my strengths. What is done has to be for a reason, in return I trust that what you do is done for a reason. Comes back to the trust thing.

But overall, that ability not to judge or feel entitled is so refreshing. Definitely one of the greatest ISTP qualities.
    Thank you
    Im out, its been fun
