    Default Are you like a lightswitch or a dimmer?

    I am either "on" or "off". I either give 200% or make no effort at all. If someone wants to go for a walk, I end up running. I do these extreme hikes, then spend a week on the couch. Is this an ISTP thing? It is starting to drive me nuts, and I'm not sure what to do about it.

    I'm a total light switch.

    Actually I've been called a spot light. If my spot light is on you - you (or a hobby, an interest, whatever) will feel the heat but it can be totally off you and it's like "wait, what happened??"

    A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes,
    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them,
    and now it's left me blind...

    But aside from being jewish, and coincidently an alright carpenter, yeah, I'm fairly on or off.

    I don't think it's a bad thing. I just need to be more consistent on the "upkeep" phase and enjoy the "building" phase.

    Example: my garage, it's a friggin mess. Out of the blue, I've spent the last 3 days cleaning and building custom shelving units. Now that I'm in a "up" phase I need to spend this energy establishing a system so when the energy runs out (it will run out) I will have an easy, simple system in place that makes upkeep easy. That is, a place for everything, and everything in it's place.


    Be happy you have up phases. Some people sit on the couch and stay there.

    Are you a candle that when blown, takes a while to be put out -- keeps flickering back on?
