Oh, this goes without mentioning that I have some sappy songwriter tendencies. I can be borderline F/T and S/N really.
    I think I peaked at ever-so-vaguely successful, on the bad timing side of any given big break. (Example: One of my first bands got invited to perform on Charlie Daniel's old TNN show -- Which was promptly canceled soon before OUR visit.) I did have a bit of a Spinal Tap thing going with bass players...

    Have come to the conclusion, despite a desperate desire to believe otherwise, that I'm a decidedly mediocre songwriter. Out of some couple hundred attempts, I think less than ten have passed my own personal Suck-o-Meter test.

    I'd imagine there'd be a fair amount of nerdiness in the ISTP crowd, especially when it comes to computers, gaming, and other tech stuff.

    A lot of the posts here seem to back that up.

    A Ti-dom friend of mine seemed INTP to me because he's very nerdy in a scientific, logical, cerebral way. He's sarcastic, a man of few words, and far prefers reading something like Les Miserables to working on a car. His interests revolve around computers & food. However, I see little about him that suggests Ne-aux, especially in his expressions. He seems more intune with the tangible - for one, he's an AMAZING cook (I just left his house where I gorged myself on homemade kung pow chicken, potstickers, haznel nut icecream & a cocktail he invented). He also strikes me as pretty realistic & practical, where INTPs do NOT (although they may see themselves that way). Anyway, he is just an example of what I think a nerdy ISTP may look like.

    Thoughts? Any nerdy ISTPs here?
    I know a few nerdy ISTP's. Strangely enough... my ex roommate and my current roommate are both nerdy ISTP's.

    The one's uber mechanical, works on cars all day long... loves science museums and is getting a degree in economics... can't dress himself properly at all... glasses... and silly/nerdy humor. A bit socially awkward. But a complete ISTP and not INTP.

    My other roommate is a huge video game nerd. Also can't dress himself properly. A bit socially awkward. But total ISTP.
