    Every once in awhile I rub things into people's faces with something competitive. They take me too seriously though, so I stopped. I think I know two ESTJ brothers who are a lot more sensitive than I can be (and here I thought I was close to ISFP). They're really famous for making that :| face. Being the nice guy that I am, I don't want to hurt any ESTJ's feelings.

    Yup I get that from sj's too. Probbably because they are more concerned with establishing a place in the pecking order. istp and estp are both craving the thrill of competition. estp's crave it more tho I think.

    I don't look at it in terms of having everyone or no one, or of traveling fast and thus traveling alone. I know what I want to do, and I do it. Those that are with me during life experiences have them in common with me. Those I hold dear are dear to me whether they wish to be around me all the time or not. I don't pose rules and limitations on others, and I don't like them posed upon me.

    It seems to me that both ISTP and ESTP are thought of by others as "troublemaker" types. We like to know how things tick. That's because we like to make things happen the way we want them to happen. Maybe ESTP is a little more aggressive in how they set out to do these things?

    Both ISTP and ESTP are very creative. Both are risk takers. Both are aloof. Both create opportuniites and follow them as the universe unfolds before them. It seems to me the major difference between ISTP and ESTP is in "How They Do What They Do."

    I love my xSTP peeps. This planet would be one big ass party if there were more of us, I guarantee it.
    Excellent points. I will have to continue reading to see if ISTPs feel the same way.

I work with a female ESTP and we are very similar because we are "shoot from the hip" style communicators and we say what we mean. We both are efficient in meeting immediate needs and prioritizing potential issues.

    Another thing I've noticed is ESTP's are big picture people. They just seem to concentrate on broader horizons. It's harder for me to immediately think like that. I'm more likely to get zoned in then expand from singular points to a broader perspective.

    We both can read people and their motives very well. The difference is this. The ESTP knows how to put that information to practical use to implement their goals. ISTP's can do the same but it doesn't come naturally and it wears us out. Personally, I use that knowledge defensively. To protect myself and my friends from bad people. Doing anything with that information is not even on my radar unless a great opportunity presents itself.

    Another thing is patience. ISTP's generally have much more patience than they do. I've noticed ESTP's are not so good with this. LOL. They want "now" 20 minutes ago. ISTP's are a bit more willing to wait things out. Is this because we are lazier? IDK...
    Another excellent point.

    I don't. If I am ISTP, that is. I have all the troublemaker qualities, but none of the sense of bigger (lets call them "networked") ones that ESTPs do. It's not in their nature to turn people off too much. There was a time where I could see opportunities everywhere, but it often entailed distancing myself in society rather than being the picture of "awesome". I like to know how things tick, and take risks. But that doesn't necessarily mean I'm Donald Trump. I learned about car stereos by breaking into breaking into people's cars. Just for example. That's opportunisitic, and learning how things tick, but not in a social or productive way.

    I don't even have the troublemaker qualities any longer. I'm just boring now. Haha. Where to go from here? I'd be happy carving myself a little place in the world and just leaving people alone.

    I'm not a troublemaker so much anymore... I use knowledge of how things work in order to push the correct buttons for proper cause and effect, as in "if I do A and B and use the proper skills in their execution I can cause C and D... and if it's done right nobody will even think that I'm the cause of it... they will think that they did it on their own accord"

    I'm likable if I want for you to like me, and if I don't like you you will not like me either. I feel compelled to always be fair with others and do the right thing even when I don't really WANT to do so and it would be easier to do otherwise. I have always viewed others as equals no matter who they are and am not intimidated by anybody (except for clowns, who are fucking terrifying!)... somehow others find me to be intimidating though, even when they like me I get mad quickly and easily but don't stay angry for long because life moves too quickly to stay in any one single spot for too long. I use a lot of self control in everyday life. I never dress for the occasion... something about breaking dress code on a daily basis makes me feel just a bit freer and that really makes me happy I believe in "live and let live"... commands make me want to do the OPPOSITE... I don't give commands to others, if I want for them to do something I ask for them to do so and explain why... the final decision is still theirs.

    if left to my own devices, I'm not particularly social and I avoid crowds of people and such... I'm an extrovert by mindset and influence only... I think about myself in relation to the world around me as opposed to vice versa and apparently my qualities tend to rub off on others more than the reverse occurs

    sorry Halla, but if there is a big party finding me present would be rather difficult unless it occurs outdoors

    I dont crave competition I do what I do because I like to and for the thrill of doing it. I would more prefer to show off then compete. Its more about who I am and what I can do then having to prove that I am better then the world.
    Im out, its been fun

    "Trouble" is subjectively defined, and EVIL spelled backwards is LIVE.

    Sounds like you are "genuine" to me, and to many people, myself included, people who are "genuine" are by default "likeable."

    +1, except minus the Clown-O-Phobia for me.
    My high school GF's StepMom was afraid of clowns, as is terrified by them, and I accidentally got her a "Happy Birthday!" card with clowns all over it one year. Oops!

    Yeppers on the above!

    At the office I dress sharp.
    In my off time I wear Adidas, because Adidas athletic clothes kick ass.
    Dress code issues resolved 100% in two simple steps for my life.

    Agreed, and nicely stated!!

    I'm extroverted by nature, but do NOT need to be around people to be happy/content.
    I seek the company of others when I wish.
    My mood/behavior/demeanor/etc. is for the most part, very consistent.
    Granted, I have terribly shitty days like anyone else, and they suck when they occur.
    But, thankfully, I tend to bounce back quick from the dark days of life when they do occur.
    That might be because I am way stubborn, or have a terible attention span (I have none, actually, as I've admitted before), or partially oblivious. IDK.
    Regardless, I am who I am.
    Love me or Hate me, I'm me.
    I'm enrgetic and well intended.
    I am very blunt, but not rude. I say things as I see them. I say what others are thinking, but often are not comfortable saying.
    Life is too short to talk through the daisies.

    The setting of the big international xSTP party would include indoor space and outdoor space, both of them fully equipped to deliver a 100% kick ass and enjoyable experience. That was my desire anyway. If you want everyone to attend, then create an event that is worth it for all to consider attending.

    Here, these are for you. I've been wondering how you're doing, and am glad to see you around the boards.

    Cheers!

    I can be kind of grumpy... though that is somehow likable by people as well

    makes me think of when the man snuck up behind the house and started pounding on the french doors with a clown mask on one night at 11:30 (he had to work late)... I'd grabbed the cleaver before he called and told me it was him and to let him in

    Dress code issues resolved 100% in two simple steps for my life.
    I am supposed to dress professionally at work and we have something against open toed shoes... I wear open toed shoes every day when it's not snowy out... the issue with the fact that there IS a dress code

    I'm quite content with a smaller group or completely alone... I actually HATE crowds of people and am an abysmal failure at public speaking stubbornness is a perfectly acceptable and admirable quality... my thoughts are generally "fuck you, life... I'm going to do what I want no matter WHAT you think!" attention spans are things that happen to other people unless we're talking about work, in which case I'm surprisingly competent because it doesn't only matter to me... and yes, I'm me regardless of what anyone else tends to think... it's all that I can be at the end of the day and why would I want to be someone different? I've always spoken my mind and if I'm angry or happy or upset everyone else is generally perfectly aware

    excellent, because crowds make me feel like a caged animal... I need space to escape and feel FREE... I also tend to feel the need to run away from gatherings and always have... I return, but running away is the ultimate freedom (I even ran away from school frequently as a kid )

    I've been busy with work lately and haven't been on the board as often... I stop in and make one or two comments on most days though!
