Well, I consider myself a cross between ISTP and ISTJ, so here goes:
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.)
I quite enjoy doing nothing. I'm a very laid-back person. Doing nothing is better than doing work.
2. What connection do you feel between physical activity and your mental well-being?
I hate most physical activity, but I always feel great afterwards.
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 would probably be bored to death, but I really don't know what I'd do to change it.
4. What happens mentally when you're placed under protracted or inescapable stress?
Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy when I'm under extreme stress. I have all these thoughts racing in my head and I get very angry.
5. What happens mentally when you're confronted with protracted monotony?
I get annoyed and restless.
6. Does mental stress translate quickly or slowly into physical signs? (This includes reckless behavior or outbursts...) What signs do you exhibit?
I'd probably have to say it translates slowly to physical stress. I am able to take stress up to a certain point, but then I get very irritable. I often go away to a place by myself and freak out, but if I'm forced to be around people, I will probably just be very hostile toward them.
7. Do you have 'internal dialogues'? What does the internal voice say to you?
All the time! Since I don't like sharing my feeling with others, I often have "conversations" as if I'm speaking to someone I know whenever I feel overwhelmed by my feelings.
8. How would you respond to your parent who was behaving irresponsibly? (Alcoholism, drugs, dead-beat behavior,etc.)
It depends on the situation, but I would probably get into a big yelling fight with 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?
I don't understand the question. =/
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 have never been in a relationship yet.
11. What sort of advanced mental pursuits do you find powerfully attractive or intriguing? Are you drawn to existentialism? Abstraction? Why?
I don't know.
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 doing what other people tell me.
13. How important is justice? What happens to you mentally when you see unjust things occurring? How do you physically react?
I get very angry.
14. How important is stability? Is there such a thing as "too much" stability?
I've never thought of that before. No, I don't think there's a such thing as "too much stability."
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?
I don't really have any strong bonds with anyone, but loyalty is very important to me.
16. What excites your contempt? When filled with irritation or contempt, how do you (or do you NOT) express it?
It depends on the situation. Most of the time, I try not to express anything I feel.
