    I'm nerdy until I get angry and want to strangle someone with a rear naked choke.

    Now that I know about Ichazo's instinctual stackings, I would say that the motorcycle-riding, chainsaw-juggling SPs might be the risk-taking, 'extreme' types like sx/so. I am probably a sp/so myself, maybe a so/sp, and I tend to be cold, formal, a bit nerdy, and not a risk-taker. Very conservative, and not as flashy and exciting as the SP description makes us out to be.

    I am nerdy yes I am and I say it all the time. I built my own computer (the one I'm using now) and yes I play video games, I want a motor cycle, and I watch science fiction TV shows. So there are some nerdy ISTP's here.

    The two ISTPs I know (took the test and know for certain) are both 'nerdy'. The other one is studying to be an engineer and the other one is someone who spends most of her time in the internet, reading and videogaming. She reads a lot. They also participate a lot in N type discussions when we get down to them sometimes but always approach things from a practical pov.

    Should I also mention that the other ISTP is also one of the most romantic people I know, likes psychology, philosophy and ethics, and writes (loveydovey) poetry and fiction.

    On the same token an ESTP I know is a nerd as well. His Ti is strong.

    I have a nerdy ISTP friend who mistyped as INTJ for several years, because she has so many theoretical/cerebral interests. e.g. She spent all summer working on a sci-fi novel -- or at least, trying to make a coherent world, based on existing physics theories.

    She does come across as much more earthy and practical, than the INTJs in my life. Very direct and no-frills in conversation, very chill. Example: Saw her after three months, and she'd lost about fifteen pounds.

    Me: Oh my god, ISTP, look at YOU! You look great!
    INFJ friend: How did you do it?!?
    ISTP friend: *shrugs* Ran more. Ate better.

    The INFJ and I both tend to be pretty wordy about those sorts of things, and the INTJs I know would probably have turned it into a little story, too. But for my ISTP friend, it's that simple. Very refreshing!

    It happens. I am one.
    Then again, I'm not exactly a poster child for the type.
