    you are right about reading people, that is why i look people in the eye too.
    but i totally LOVE the phone! my phone conversations tend to be a lot more rapid-fire, really fast-paced hammering and on-point.

    I hardly ever keep eye contact while talking. But I do observe a lot despite that.

    I'm with MDP. I am not that big a fan of the phone. I like to take a look at people and see how they are reacting/responding to things. I don't look the whole time, only at certain points in the convorsation. The same way I looked at the camera in my video.

    but it does seem like most ISTPs seem to be pretty visual, and love to be always taking in info about everything through our eyes.



    me too. i really stare at people when i am talking to them, directly in the eye. several times i have had people call me out on it, and say it makes them uncomfortable!
    I agree. I always get the "You're freaking me out cause you are looking right into my soul," etc. But I still can never remember their eye color. Almost like I'm looking past their eye color.

    I generally don't like the phone, either. I'm a HUGE nonverbal reader, and I don't really even notice it until I can't read someone's expressions, or when online, can't hear their tone of voice. It dramatically reduces my ability to understand where someone else is coming from.

    This coupled with the fact that as an expressive Initiator I'm not real good at listening, creates kind of a troublesome scenario. I've never had a problem going past my minutes, haha. Oh well.

    Seems like the behavior is the same between us ITPs but you guys actually remember what you pick up. I have the same issues with interactions that aren't face-to-face. With how much I put into observing others and "reading" them, people don't believe me when I can't so much as remember how tall they are.

    Eye color is the worst though. I don't really remember the eyecolor of anyone. I "know" what people have said about the eyecolors of others. Thus I "know" that mine is blue but i wouldn't really know that if people hadn't told me so.

    This must be what happens when two ISTP's make eye contact with each other.

    That's funny! I think it is funny when people say "I don't like the way you are looking at me" I think it is because I really look when I want to make a point.

    Pretty!

    Also, I actually try to note people's eye color as sort of like a mental name tag. At least for some, anyways.
