    Are you sure that ISTP is not me?

    I totally despise Harry Potter, plus Twilight.

    Yeah, but you're a Buffy geek like you said

    Sounds like this other dude is totally hung up on realism. My dad's that way, but at least he sort of has an excuse since he's an old fart.

    You're just talking about a quality/personal preference thing though. They're both fantasy-based, and you have nothing against the general concept at least.

    Yes if it amuses me, no otherwise... I like Hitchhiker's Guide (all of the books!), Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Kurt Vonnegut and I really enjoyed Something Wicked This Way Comes... the authors who are too damned serious or attract really obnoxious fans tend to make me flee though... I don't like romance novels

    I just finally watched avatar btw.. that was pretty rad

    You could say that whole movie is about a short sighted sensor getting some ideals, and finding his true self in a fantasy.

    I don't like Harry Potter. The first book brought back unpleasant images of school so I stopped reading it. Plus it was poorly written, with lots of grammatical errors, and that annoyed me. I'd like to be able to focus on a story, not on wanting to edit it!
    I love Star Trek and Lord of the Rings.
    I've read some of Robert Jordan's books and I like those, too.
    Oh, yeah. I enjoyed Avatar, too. Very colorful!!!
    edit: How could I forget Doctor Who? I am a Doctor Who fan!
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    One of my best friends (ESTP) is a major sci-fi geek. Very, very into Babylon 5, Star Trek and Doctor Who.
