    Default ISTP's

    How are you at dancing?. I realized this weekend that I'm just terrible at dancing... which is pretty sad because I can play 3 instruments. :S I tend be either 1 of 2 things on the dance floor. Too aloof and not fully in the music or too aggressive and over the top. Plus I think dancing is kinda lame, so that doesn't help.

    I don't think I'm anything special when it comes to dancing, and I usually hate it. Feel self-conscious and look ridiculous, but that's where alcohol helps immensely

    a long while ago my cousin had this party and i was dancing like a total idiot with these girls in the living room until the cops came. i got into it. i doubt i'm a good dancer but there was good energy.

    i went to a place the other week that had a small dance floor. let me tell you: if there was ever a group of white kids that couldn't dance, this was it. i eventually forced myself to get out there and dance, but i quickly realized there were no girls, and i just felt stupid. i was already out of my element, and this certainly was not some trendy club either.

    i don't know how i'd feel going to a club like in downtown DC (people talk about club "Fur" or something). i might either really like it or be disgusted with all the bullshit and cocky assholes and stuck up annoying girls that are the stereotype of such clubs.

    but i have a funny history of dancing. i was at this small town bar in vermont and i remember dancing with a bunch of random people and it was hilarious and embarrassing but fun.

    dancing is good if you have a partner. it sucks if you don't.

    Since I'm black, I'm expected to be a good dancer. It's a reallllly strong expectation/stereotype. As such, I can probably dance better than I could if I were white with the same personality, just because I've been pushed to do it more due to the reasons mentioned. Still, I generally dislike dancing, and I'd only consider myself good at it in those rare moments when I'm just "on it" and in the right mood. Most times I'm just not into it. I guess there's just too much "feeling" involved in dancing, to where you have to really be in the same vibe as the crowd or dance partner, and I don't shift my own vibe into alignment.

    I'm terrible and I don't dance if I can possibly avoid it.

    I'm an awful, awful dancer. I avoid it at all costs. But inevitably, if you get enough booze in me, I will make a moron out of myself on the dance floor.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.
