    Yep..

    I think ISTPs might be slightly like this too, not sure.

    Of course, you can't fake passion.

However, when we get to choose our own books to read for independent papers and presentations, I can't seem to pull myself away from whatever book I choose to read.

    Absolutely! Can't stand to read text books even if it's my choice. However other kind of books that I choose I usually love. I don't know how many times I have downsized my "library" at home.

    Ain't that the truth! That's so true of my ISTP husband. He will usually let me know that he is not interested in listening to what I have to say. Then he wonders why I don't talk to him about certain things.

    This is much too true..

    My 17 year old ISTP brother can't feign interest in anything that doesn't have to do with him or his interests. XD

    Out of curiosity, what do you ISFP's do for a living or hope to do career wise? If in school, what are you studying?

    i don't really have any plans. i keep mulling over the idea of some lazy job, where i can enjoy plenty of passive entertainment, and occassionally harrass people or take their money. like a librarian.

    sometimes i feel like i'm setting myself up for failure. i'll have these big plans, and just can't follow through, or just don't have enough confidence in myself to follow through. i do become frustrated with learning things i feel have no practical application. and in my worldview, i feel like the only true practical thing to do is to do something where i can feel useful or as though i'm helping, whether it be people, animals or the environment. but i'm just not good at the school thing and am so afraid i'll wind up a drop out, waiting tables for the rest of my life. i've been dragging out the school thing for a while now, too. and so i feel like i have to finish, since i'd been at it for this long. but as soooon as some emotional unrest heads my way, i let everything around me fall apart-including my grades. ::shruggs::
