It never occurs to him to look at his routine and see if he needs to shake things up a bit.
    As for myself, I disagree with this. I tend to hate routine (although I very much need it) and get extremely bored when I have to keep to a certain schedule. I like to work spontaneously and in extremely productive bursts. It's definitely been a challenge working in the corporate world and to have to adjust to mandatory regiments that come along with the job. I feel suffocated at times

    Everything else I agree with EWench.

In other words, he tries to apply his Ti to "understanding" and "defining" his feelings and this overloads his processor (because you can't understand emotions using traditional ISTP Ti tactics) and thus he gets stuck in the DLLD zone. I think of a robot who is trying to process some sort of logical problem that doesn't have any solution so it gets stuck and can only repeat over and over, "Processing... processing..." It tends to completely blow out his operating systems... so to speak.
    I especially agree with the above two. This tendency to over think makes me extremely paranoid and is a cause of stress. Sometimes something will happen that will just be kind of bad in others' opinons (if not normal), but I will over analyze the situation (e.g., everything from the person's facial expression at the time to the words that were said) and I will impulsively take action to try to fix this barely existing "bad" situation. But then again, I have high social anxiety, so perhaps not all ISTPs are like this. And that Dreaded Logical Loop of Doom - so true. Drives me nuts!

    Clearly no one hates ISTPs. I really only know one and that is my dad. I certainly don't hate my dad, but I can kind of understand why my mom (ENFP) did!

    Let me start by saying that I have loads of respect for him, and he is one of the smartest people I know, at least in an ISTP sort of way. He is not great with words and he's not got a lot of formal education (he dropped out of high school and attended carpentry school), but he sure knows his way around tools and devices, so yeah, he is totally a stereotype. He can fix or build anything. Cars, computers, woodwork, drywall, concrete, you name it. It's a little surprising that he is so good with computers since he is so inclined towards manual labor, but a computer is the same to him: a lot of parts that make sense to him. He has this crazy ability to look at problems from different perspectives and always know exactly what goes where.

    On the negative side, he is a little cold. He is extremely uncomfortable with emotions of any kind. He is a pragmatist to the extreme and won't accept anything without concrete evidence. He is not exactly generous or helpful to anyone outside his immediate family, and he is pretty selfish. He only does things because he has to do them, not because he really cares or wants to help. I was once convinced he was an ISTJ not an ISTP because he is so steady and frugal and all the ISTP descripions say he should be kind of spontaneous and fit into the SP temperament better than he does, but that was what decided it for me: He does not DO things because of any internal drive or desire to do the right thing or anything like that. He does what he has to, and begrudgingly at that. (A lot of that probably has to do with the Enneagram though. He is a 5w6 strong SP/sx.)

    I think my mom's least favorite thing about him was how he regarded her as silly and inconsequential and basically useless, and never offered her any moral support for any of her (admittedly numerous) endeavors. She is pretty ridiculous, but he was pretty critical. He rarely had anything nice to say to her, though he didn't say much at all, and what he considered nice (i.e. constructive), to her seemed condescending and negative.

    I've only seen him use his Fe once, and that was when my mom left him. It has been so neglected over the years that it was a pretty sad sight. He became pathetic and clingy when he was usually so distant and detached.

    Anyway, he remarried to an ESFJ and she really brings out the best in him more than my mom did. I think my mom's energy overwhelmed him and pushed him deeper into introversion. My stepmom has much more in common with him. She is a lot more down to earth and practical and he just respects her more. I think Ne just rubs him the wrong way. XD
