    yeah- I think that Xander covered my arguing style rather well. I stick to the concrete ALL of the time!

    And isn't everything a competition meant to be won?

    No, reading some of the actual complaints and descriptions people have written in this thread should make it clear.

    I have nothing against ESTPs. They just do everything backwards.

    I dated two ESTPs when I was a teenager and am friends with many more. The upshot is that they cannot be stopped. The downside is that they cannot be stopped.

    Double-edged sword.

    EDIT: I had a shop foreman who was a nearly-bullet-proof ESTP. Dude raced me to the shop once and still beat me, and he'd had FOUR heart attacks.

    Just change back to ISTP so that you'll fit in and conform better!

    I like XSTP's because I actually enjoy taking on an XSTP perspective myself often, especially when going into explorer/adventurer mode while out hiking and doing something I know is a little risky or exciting, such as running down a steep slope or scrambling up something where a fall would likely result in serious injury. The ESTP outlook contrasts nicely with my natural INTP inclination to just think about things and count them as done and experienced without ever even leaving my chair.

    If you've ever seen Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel, I would say Bear Grylls is an ESTP.

    I TOTALLY want his job!

    (getting him as a bonus wouldn't be disappointing either! )

    Billy Idol. Gene Vincent. Maybe Johnny Rotten (an STP at any rate). Love all three of them to pieces.

    Noooo, I want his job! :steam:

    ....but you can have him--no competition from me there!

    Edit: A bit of advice... if you do get his job, don't drink from any of his old canteens!

    Is that a lesser known archetype of STPs, as there's this one lady I work with who I suspect is ISTP...?
