    You can disregard my answers since I'm not STP.

    Currently I have no idea what type I am so feel free to discard my answers.

    1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)
    - Very much so.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?
    - For the most part there is a direct relationship b/w the two.

    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?
    - Routine is not a bad thing as having the basics laid down gives you a solid fundation to play on.

    4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?
    - Ahh, this is a good one. First I fall back and re-organize then when I have a plan I attack the source of my stress.

    5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony?
    - I would welcome it.

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?
    - It translates slowly and basically depletes my energy.

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?
    - Yes but nothing that I can remember.

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)
    - Easy, the way I deal with all tough situations, organize then attack. If that fails then give the offender and ultimatum.

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?
    - Make new goals. If I don't achieve those then make more goals. Life, and most things in it, is about managing risk and playing the game. You can't always be number one but you can always do well.

    10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave?
    - I wouldn't. Please see first answer.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?
    -Grand concepts/truths that transcend a particular facet of life to cover all facets of life.

    12. How important is control? Self-control? Control over your person/environment? Control over your ultimate fate? Would you rather die on your terms than live on someone else's?
    -All are of paramount importance but self-control is the most important. It would depend on the terms.

    13. How important is justice? What happens to you mentally when you see unjust things occurring? How do you physically react?
    - Important up to a point. I believe in justice tempered with mercy as the world is a cold cruel place and it's sometimes unfair to hold all people equally to one standard.

    14. How important is stability? Is there such a thing as "too much" stability?
    - It's important. Yes, too much stability causes complacency which ultimately hinders societies progress.

    15. How do you feel -- first mentally, then physically -- when you make a strong bond with someone? How important is loyalty? What is your personal definition of loyalty and why would you give that loyalty to another person?
    - Ahh, this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. Loyalty is extremely important. For if I do not have my loved ones what the point of anything.

    16. What excites your contempt? When filled with irritation or contempt, how do you (or do you NOT) express it?
    - Primarily two things, from which many thing stem, excite my contempt. Cruelty and the in-ability of some people to see beyond the mere dots we are in the massive existence.


    This was an excellent learning exercise

    Questions!

    1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)

    No. I'm downright sedate much of the time, building up information and energy for a burst of... um... something. Some sort of action/activity.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?

    Um... I feel a lot better when I'm lifting weights and running regularly. If that's not what you're getting at, then your question is too vague for me.


    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?

    PROJECTS!! I've read that ISTPs live for their hobbies, and I think that pretty well describes me. I think we often work in pretty mundane jobs, but evenings and weekends are where we thrive: a project in the shed, some thing or other to be taken apart and put back together, a wild & crazy Saturday activity (Airsoft wars!!).

    4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?

    I actually don't even consciously realize when I'm stressed. It usually manifests as tension headaches, or waking in the morning to realize I've been clenching my teeth in my sleep. When the stress is unavoidably noticeable, I push it back into some compartmentalized place in the back of my mind and keep going.


    5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony?

    Daydreaming. I used to get in trouble for daydreaming during school. I would just zone out and my mind would be in a galaxy far, far away. At least that's what happens with mental monotony. Physical monotony? No problem. I can usually find some way to make it interesting to myself--to turn it into some sort of game or something.

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?

    It has to be pretty serious and to have built for a long time before I burst. Then it usually manifests in punching a wall or something--usually to avoid punching the offender's lights out or biting their head off with a remark I'll later regret voicing. Otherwise it'll subconsciously build up and result in the aforementioned tight muscles/tension headaches.

    I also don't usually burst over something done to me personally (unless it's by my xxTJ sister, who knows exactly how to push my buttons). I will explode over something done to someone else, however.

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?

    It's not so much a dialogue as a narration. I've actually many a time realized that I'm internally narrating my actions in either 1st or 3rd person. Weird.

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)

    I'd probably try to unobtrusively take care of them--look out for them without letting it look like I'm looking out for them.

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?

    Hah. Um, well first, "actualize" sounds like a pretty psycho-babble word for an _STP.

    But I think I'd just try to take my hits quietly and secretly find some way to improve my situation. I don't think it would manifest in an eye-liner or arsonist sort of rebellion--that would be too pointless. It would have to be something useful (digging the hole in the wall behind the poster, ala Shawshank Redemption). For instance, if I was locked up all the time, I'd do push-ups or whatever I could to prep myself to escape. If I was in some sort of dreary situation, I'd create some sort of retreat where I could express my creativity (a room/shack wallpapered with my drawings, etc.)

    10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave?

    I've never really been in one of those... and from what I've read, ISTPs are pretty good about leaving relationships. The closest thing I've had to one is a friendship with a girl who has some mental & family problems. She's like a sister to me, even when her mental problems would cause her to do a personality about-face and say cruel things to me in order to rouse me (which it wouldn't, which would make her "other self" angrier). That relationship I've kept up out of love & loyalty, and for the sake of her saner self.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?

    I'm drawn to neither. As far as advanced mental pursuits, I had a political philosophy class I enjoyed. I studied history in college and still enjoy that. The study of weapons and martial arts both Eastern & Western is good too.

    EDIT: I forgot WIKIPEDIA!! I'm an info/data junkie and I can go on Wikipedia for hours.


    12. How important is control? Self-control? Control over your person/environment? Control over your ultimate fate? Would you rather die on your terms than live on someone else's?

    I don't mind control as long as I have autonomy In other words, I'd rather be the contractor or the advisor than the general--I don't want to be in charge--but I want a certain freedom within my sphere of action. I'm pretty fond of living myself, but I don't really fear death and I'd be willing to die for the right cause (not for some naive idealist's idea of a cause, but definitely for a friend).

    13. How important is justice? What happens to you mentally when you see unjust things occurring? How do you physically react?

    Heh, see above mental stress question and think, "Dirty Harry." Or Batman.

    EDIT: Ever seen the humours MBTI type description list where the ISTP is listed as "Psycho Vigilante?" Um, yeah...

    14. How important is stability? Is there such a thing as "too much" stability?

    Stability provides the platform for my creative base-jumping

    15. How do you feel -- first mentally, then physically -- when you make a strong bond with someone? How important is loyalty? What is your personal definition of loyalty and why would you give that loyalty to another person?

    Um... it takes a really long time for me to make that kind of bond, and there have been very, very few people I have made it with. To those people, I am dyed-in-the-wool loyal. It's a very mental thing. A "this is how it is now" kind of thing. Physicality doesn't really enter into the bond part. For a definition, see above answer about life/death.

    16. What excites your contempt? When filled with irritation or contempt, how do you (or do you NOT) express it?

    Idiotic, bureaucratic processes. I fume inwardly, may hit a wall or three, and as a last resort, vent to my closest friend.

    Ok. 16 questions is way more than enough. Thanks again, guys. [/QUOTE]

    You are welcome.

    No. I spend a lot of time just sitting around thinking. Though you might consider that an activity.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?
    I feel a very strong connection. Doing stuff besides just sitting around keeps me sane.

    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?
    I've been struggling with not being able to kayak since I moved away from the mountains a few years ago. I still go when it rains, but we're in a pretty major drought right now, so I've had to find other stuff to do. Right now I get my thrills from riding my bike around town, and sex. I've also been looking for some kind of martial arts to do, but nothing I've seen fits well.

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?
    Yes, I sometimes imagine myself teaching someone else how to do something. I imagine if someone from a hundred years ago travelled to this time, what would they think? What would I show them?

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?
    I'd let the dissatisfaction simmer inside for a while, until I decided to do something else.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?
    Chemistry and music. Both contain their share of abstraction. Symmetry is beautiful. Um....

    Questions!
    1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)

    During the week I engage enough in activity at work, physical and mental...and I'm a programmer. Part of it is the fact that I'm with people all day, but by the weekend all I want to do is veg out and get things done around my apartment that I've put off during the week.
    I like learning things for the most part, and if I learn a new skill I find it much more satisfying than learning random facts. After I've got the skill, I like to relax by watching brainless TV or chatting on Aim.
    Meaningful activity followed by plenty of relaxing... That's my balance.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?

    I don't find a connection. When I used to jog (about 10 years ago), I liked to think while I jogged. Now I'm too lazy to jog and I save thinking for long distance driving or a slow day at home.

    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?

    Variety is essential, but routine makes me accomplish things. I like routine during the week and save the variety for the weekends or vacation time.

    If I were stuck in a small place, I go on a lot of trips on the weekends. Or I'd find another job, or transfer to another school.... Depending on what might be a viable option, of course.

    4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?

    I freak out. I become a bit emotional and can't get anything done. Very unusual.

    5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony?

    I become the most impatient person ever. I try thinking of something exciting to do. Worst case, I pick up Harry Potter and reread it....again :P

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?

    Very slowly. Or rather, it takes a LOT of stress to show in me physically. I outburst... I get all loud and irrational.

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?

    Ha! I have those all of the time. It's usually a mental debate about what to say in present company. I always think I'm too quiet and that I should say something, but I mostly stay quiet and let other people talk. Other times it's conversations I could have had with people, or conversations I'd like to have, ooooor conversations with myself about myself.

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)

    Not sure. They've always been straight up good people :-/

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?

    I never settle - which is a problem sometimes. I just wait until whatever I want comes around. If it's something I can buy, then I save for it or at least keep it in mind when I get paid.
    I shaved my head once to "liberate" myself from a crappy relationship. He like loooong flowy hair and I hated that it reminded him of his wonderful ex, so I shaved my head after it was over. *barf*

    10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave?

    I haven't been in a relationship long enough to call it dead-end... Although, I also don't really date guys whom I'd consider dead-ends.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?

    I like to learn about things I can use on a daily basis, or at least something I can find a practical application for. Existentialism and abstraction make me die inside.

    12. How important is control? Self-control? Control over your person/environment? Control over your ultimate fate? Would you rather die on your terms than live on someone else's?

    Self control...er, I like I be in control of things going on around me and in control of my situation. If I'm not in control, I have to have no expectations or plans beforehand. Say, if friends plan to come in town and want to do *something*, that's cool, but they have to plan stuff and I'll just go along. But if they randomly show up and I've got something else in mind... That bothers me a bit.

    Having to depend on others makes me uncomfortable.

    13. How important is justice? What happens to you mentally when you see unjust things occurring? How do you physically react?

    Very. It depends on whether or not I think doing something will help. If it's injustice to me, then I stand up for myself, tell someone I think they're wrong and tell them why I think I'm right. If they don't see my point and insist upon theirs, I end up hating them for a long time. Most of the time when I speak up, it's because I've thought things out and the person should fucking listen to me. Odds are I'm right, too. If they bring up a valid point or at least some rule or regulation that prevents me from doing what I want to do, then ok, fine, I'll deal with it. Otherwise...I hates 'em.

    14. How important is stability? Is there such a thing as "too much" stability?

    Very. I can't handle emotional flakes. Too much stability doesn't exist! Unless it means not having wild and crazy fun. I'd die without that!

    15. How do you feel -- first mentally, then physically -- when you make a strong bond with someone? How important is loyalty? What is your personal definition of loyalty and why would you give that loyalty to another person?

    Mentally, I think of them with higher regard. I keep them in mind... When I see or hear things that remind me of them I think of them fondly. I hardly mention it to them. Physically...eh. I don't do the physical thing unless they do it first. Hugs are great, but I never give them first.

    16. What excites your contempt? When filled with irritation or contempt, how do you (or do you NOT) express it?

    I become steaming inside. If I say anything, it's mean and bitter. If I don't say anything, I stay steaming and bitch to someone else later (or on a blog) and get mean and bitter.

    1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)

    Yes. Boredom is my worst enemy. I need to be doing something at all times, I have trouble paying attention to a long lecture, and I don't watch much TV because it tends to bore me.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?

    A huge connection, but that's partially because I generally get my "alone time" from my physical activities as well.

    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine?

    I'd find things to do to avoid inactivity, there's always something. Avoiding routine and variety aren't that important (I'm not one of those people who has to do things differently every time), but too much of it results in boredom, which is bad.

    4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?

    I go nuts internally, until it either is resolved, or until I can escape for a bit into one of those physical activities and regain my sanity/perspective.

    However, no one ever knows if I'm under stress, because there is no real difference in my outward behavior, other than me being even more reserved.

    Regardless of what it is, if something important comes up, I can ignore it until whatever the more pressing issue is, is taken care of.

    5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony?

    I tend to drift off into my own world and ignore whatever is going on (since it is boring).

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?

    It doesn't really, other than me talking even less than normal, and often disappearing for a day to go ski, or something of that sort, to get my mind off of it.

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?

    Yes, but I don't really have a "voice", I'll just often work things out in my head.

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)

    Not sure, but my guess would be:

    1. Sit down, try to talk with them a bit. (Possibly try to make them realize what they are really doing).
    2. If I got nowhere, distance myself from them, and let them know if they ever want to stop I'll help. (at least the first time).

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils?

    Very few things are impossible. So far in life, I haven't found a situation that I couldn't work into the way I wanted it to work. I can have incredible patience (I can also have no patience, it all depends), and I'm extremely persistant.

    10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave?

    Haven't really been in one, so I can't answer.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?

    Figuring out how things work, and learning things that interest me/I have a use for. Ex: I basically taught myself electronics, because I needed to make a board for something.

    12. How important is control? Self-control? Control over your person/environment? Control over your ultimate fate? Would you rather die on your terms than live on someone else's?

    I'll break it into the individual questions..

    Self-control: Extremely important. I don't usually have much of a range of visible emotions.

    Control over me/environment: I hate being told what to do, but I don't necessarily mind if it's a bunch of friends and someone else decides what to do.

    Control over my death/dying on my terms as opposed to living on someone else's:

    I value my independence strongly, while I wouldn't die if I couldn't be independent (at least not immediately), I would definitely make sacrifices (such as pay, job, etc), to keep me from being controlled by someone else.

    13. How important is justice? What happens to you mentally when you see unjust things occurring? How do you physically react?

    Depends. If someone is being unjust in a way that affects me greatly (if it's small, not worth the battle), I'll stand up for myself/get back at the person (and, no I don't care if it's the CEO, Principal, President, or just a kid who's being an a****** to me).

    However, if something unjust is happening to someone else, it'll depend on their reaction. If they don't have the balls to stand up for themselves, I'm not going to do it for them. If they do, I'll back them fully.

    14. How important is stability? Is there such a thing as "too much" stability?

    I like a lot of stability in relationships, with activities, not so much.

    15. How do you feel -- first mentally, then physically -- when you make a strong bond with someone? How important is loyalty? What is your personal definition of loyalty and why would you give that loyalty to another person?

    Hmm...I feel like I want to spend more time with them and get to know them better. I'll think about them, instead of thinking of ways to avoid them. Physically, I'll try to reciprocate what they do, but generally, they have to lead the way.

    Loyalty is important to me. Not quite sure how to explain it, but I'd say it's a mixture of absolute trust and knowing that they would always back me up, regardless of why. It takes years for me to get to that point with most people...


    16. What excites your contempt? When filled with irritation or contempt, how do you (or do you NOT) express it?

    In public, I will generally try not to display it, although if the cause of that contempt/irritation speaks with me, I will unleash it on them.

    Your survey is too long and it damn annoys me, and some of your questions don't have valid sense in them. It's also not a fun survey, come on ENFJs. Use your power of mind control to get us to have "fun" under your mind control. Like throw a party or tell random Monty Python jokes.

    Heh heh... Yes, it was long. And some of the questions did seem convoluted (Then I reminded myself, "Hey... he's an NFJ fiction author. I'll give 'im a break for making lists and speaking courteously to STPs at all. Even if we don't really care.").

    1. Is activity/activation paramount to your daily life? (By "activity", I don't necessarily mean base-jumping, folks. I mean anything that engages you, brain and body, even on minor levels.)
    When I'm doing something, I'm doing it. Or doin' it. I try not to do things because I do them so much.

    2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?
    Physical Activity basically makes me really smart, because I have the body and mind of Bruce Willis, the stunning actor.

    3. If you were born into and stuck in a very small dead-end town/city, how would you handle the inactivity? How important is variety? How important is it to avoid routine? What lengths would you go to get variety or avoid routine? As long as I had my homies and we'd be raising the ceiling up in here.

    4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress? I'm need to relax, grab a pint, watch some golf or lacross.

    5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony? I'm above it really. I can handle such things, I'd just usually want to get out of it and do something exciting like ride my quad bike/mow the lawn.

    6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit? Mental stress is usually do to others ruining the vibe and acting like a total idiot, and I try to put them in their place without coming off as too much of a sissy.

    7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you? Depends how drunk I am.

    8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.) Dead-beat behavior? Seems like they need to come to a realization. I don't feel responsible, but I'd try to get them out of the mess at whatever cost. As long as things are cool, I'm happy.

    9. If you were unable to actualize yourself, what steps would you take to gain satisfaction from your life? For example: Do you talk yourself into liking "second-best"? Do you go set a silo on fire? Do you start wearing eyeliner around your nostrils? I'd probably pick up a new hobby, I've always wanted to get into hand gliding again. Get my mojo flowing.

    10. How long do you stay in a dead-end relationship? What prompts you to stay in it? What finally prompts you to leave? The clingyness. I want her to know I'm not one of her stuffed animals. I'm a man.

    11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why? I've covered a lot of these in my pursuits. I'd adopt any of them by sheer convenience.

    Ok I'm done answering the rest... It's boring me out and I think the Spangler's just scored a yard.
