I was usually forever in the garage taking stuff apart, my dad would come home and freak out about how I was allowed into the garage again. My mom would always reply with "well tell him to put it back together". He never thought I could till she made me do it and I proved him wrong. They split when I was 4, never really had much to do with him growing up and when I did he was always on my case about finding a job in an office where I stayed "clean". He never seemed to like that aspect of my personality.Then you do not fit even Keirsey's basic utilitarian v. cooperative style of handling materials. Based on temperament, the average NF or SJ would never consider taking apart their toys. They're just not that utilitarian. They would also rather have a clean vehicle that sometimes run, as opposed to an ugly dirty vehicle that gets them from point A to B.
Now that I'm a lot older and working for him, he likes the fact I can do all the Electrical, Maintenance, and mechanical repairs that need to be done since it saves him the service calls that cost $100+ an hr. He doesn't like it when I bring up his behavior towards it in the past tho
On the alternate side, I do a lot of the administration work, and I pretty much run the company since he only shows up once a week, I'm also usually left to handle all the business affairs and politics and at times I'm forever in meetings. This aspect of the job I don't really like but I'm good at it so I'm more or less forced to do it since he knows I can. I always strive for a balance where both parties are left feeling good about the outcome. I loathe management duties where I have to discipline anyone as the thought of anyone being hurt in anyway by it is very unappealing to me.
As for cars, well I prefer mine to look somewhat plain I love the "sleeper" mentality when it comes to cars, I'm not one for really dressing them up just for looks and any modifications I do always have a utilitarian purpose to them, it's lowered for handling purposes, tinted to keep it cool inside and not destroy the leather etc. I try and keep the outside clean and get annoyed with imperfections in the paint, but the inside is victim to my NF pack rat nature, the back seat in my car is currently unuseable theres way too much stuff back there.. I not only keep it running but I'm forever messing with the way it runs, I have a laptop in my car I use to reprogram everything from the injector timing to shift points and shift pressures which are all custom to the way I like it. I also have it debadged and removed any and all signs that point to it being anything but the base model of the car, and not the hopped up supercharged paddle shifters on the steering wheel version it really is. Then again, before my current car all my others were ones I bought for $500 or less that I never really cared what they looked like just as long as they ran. I chose this car because it's a 4 door family car that if the need ever arises I wouldn't need to get rid of it. It's got 3 anchor points in the back for child seats, I can fit a 9' Kayak in it and close the trunk, and when I want I can dust off 90% of the lil boys in their hopped up Hondas with 50000 stickers and a shopping cart handle for a rear spoiler on the back.
I'd take a Cadillac STS-V over a Corvette any day of the week.
I could care less about how much money I could be making if it involves doing something I don't enjoy, I could care less about celebrities and have never had a crush on any of them based on their looks. You could show me a picture of some woman that a lot of guys drool all over and I'd just shrug my shoulders since theres no emotional or mental connection drawing me towards them.
I fit the INFP profile to a T when it comes to how I interact with other people. It's just outside of dealing with people I tend to take on a stereotype that doesn't seem to fit an INFP at all.
I guess you could say I'm more of an IXXP then anything if you look at it all as a whole.
