    [QUOTE=DeliriousDisposition;146766] My ISTP best/f's fantasy is to become an assassin instead of a doctor...[QUOTE]

    Interesting, I've always thought that would be an great job too. (Not that I would actually do it). The worst part is, a lot of times when I read about court cases....I don't think "wow, what that guy did is horrible", I think "wow, how was he such an idiot to not get rid of xxxx, or destroy xxxx?".

    Also, the enspired profiles description was very good as well.

    So are ISTPs into farming, as well?
    Well based on the responses to this inquiry, and have grown up in rural America myself, I may not be be ISTP but I am whatever McMartinez and 6sticks decides they are. My younger brother and dad farm still and I detest it, although I do enjoy getting out into the open and just going for long quiet walks.

    You and me both. The worst way for me to learn is to sit and "listen".

    Yeah, me too. Especially when watching movies I'll think, "Man, that was idiotic. Couldn't he come up with a more believable alibi than than?" It's not that I identify with the character. I think it has to do with the constant analytical stream running through my mind--I tend to approach everything from that way.

    Oh, and same thing for me with the assassin thing; that or some sort of covert ops.

    I'm much more hands-on.

    And I think that the educational system is full of subjective grading no matter how hard they try to make it objective. Seriously, what do grades even matter if you don't learn? I know too many people who didn't learn anything and hardly think for themselves who had high GPA's...yet I learned pertinent material, think pretty much for myself and I was always a B student. Teachers who saw me as a thinking type and knew I'd gotten something out of the class usually gave me the A, and teachers who were out to get students gave me the B or C. I generally put the same amount of effort into my classes... It just seems like the priorities with some teachers are all wrong.

    I did things like that in High School. They put me in an accelerated learning class but I found the work too hard and thought I would fail. So i kept complaining to the guidance counselor so I could be put into a "stupid class" and she kept saying no. So i threatened to fail all of the classes Hooray for SP practicality!!!

    Definitely. No matter how hard they try there is always a tinge of subjectivity when they are assigning final grades.

    I love lab assignment yet hate tests becuase I find them pointless. Besides, they're a farce becuase once you master a particular professor's testing style the amount of learning required to get good grades declines significantly.

    BTW, here's something that sums up how I feel:

    Work that is routine (such as administration) or too open-ended (such as research) is of little interest to the ISTP. This kind of work is an energy drain. The new, the unexplored, and the unexpected, however, are energizing and really not considered by the ISTP to be "work" at all.

    You say "when" you're insecure, but you're obviously always insecure if you act like that. Besides, you're 'stress' reaction (I pause now to suspect that you are a kid and that you need to grow out of this behavior. I hope you do.) sounds more like the "In charge" stress response, which would correllate to: ENTJ, ENFJ, ESTP, ESTJ.

    I wouldn't expect a reply from uber anytime soon.

    As for school work, I've always did relatively well but it was on my terms. During High School and as a college undergraduate I clashed with some of my teachers but ultimately (thankfully) I always scored high on exams.

    Yes! I convinced my parents to get me a compound bow when I was about 15. Sadly, I went away to school in an urban area before I could do more than target practice (my father was a hunter).

    In college I joined the fencing club and became the theater troupe's fight coordinator to make up for the lack of action in my life.
