    Money is always a welcome gift. Most of the things I want cost a non-trivial sum of money, and I'd rather get them myself (most people wouldn't know where to get the stuff I typically want). Aside from that, if there's something I specifically ask for, go for it. Otherwise, I don't really care. I don't know about anybody else, but I don't need people to get me things for me to feel loved :|
    LOL> Too true. ISTPs never get what they want/need...they either bought it themselves a year ago or the giver hasn't a clue what an ISTP wants at all...and it's no good asking either.

    Best for ISTP: carton/case of their favorite food/candy/beverage. Or gift certificate (preferably to local music/food/hardware store). Cash is a bit crass. Unless they are under 25. 30 maybe.

    hmm... In school I could never remember the author of a book, or the main character names. But I could recall the story in vivid detail...

    If I see a face outside of the context I'm used to seeing it in I can't place the name.

    But have gotten quite good at remembering names using a mind trick.

    When I meet someone new I think of something absurd I can picture to associate the name with a face.

    So there are people walking around called Jaba, Princess Leiha, Marshmellow, etc.

    Definitely! I usually get something I want and my parents or sister pay me back as a present. My mom's lifelong complaint about me is that I never want anything for my birthday or xmas and she never knows what to get for me. My dad is a little better at picking things out (like computer-y stuff). My sister is usually thoughtful and picks out a tshirt I'll prolly wear, or makes something like a scarf I can use (which I do).

    My favorite random gift of kindness (usually from a person I'm dating) is definitely food...or a cool trip/outing (that probably involves food, and it doesn't have to be anything extravagant, it could be a random walk in a park, or going to a new show, exhibit, whatever).

    Well that explains the ISTP bf constantly plying me with food... and food... and more food... I find S's especially gravitate around food.

    How do you guys feel about bacon? Or is that just a guy thing?

    IT IS NOT JUST A GUY THING! I LOVE BACON! Ahem. Please pardon my outburst. Bacon is an amazing thing and if I were queen of the world, everyone would have bacon all of the time.

    There needs to be a separate thread on bacon it looks like.

    You know those animals that will eat themselves to death if they have a never ending food supply?

    This is how I would be with bacon.

    It's truly a lasting love affair.

    I'm in the South as well but never tried this. Recipe please.

    As far as the OP I agree with what everyone else has said. I'll add that one of my best "presents" was from my ISTJ ex.

    For about a month, he did all my laundry, ironed my clothes (even my jeans!) and folded them neatly away for me. I never looked so good.
