    from what i could tell about talking to my ISTP friend is that he's all talk but is truly harmless. he sounds like a jerk, especially online, but seriously...he's pretty simple minded.

    What a perfectly good way to ruin a topic, with serious, educated, introspective crap
    Brilliant! Whether your being ironic or not you've perfectly expressed my thoughts.

    I relate to all of those above. For the most part.

    I identify with ISTP, INTP, INTJ......the % are so balanced I can't decide.

    No way, being a pilot sounds boring. All day, you just sit in a damn airplane, hauling people from one place to another. ...Unless you meant helicopter pilot. I've wanted to get a helicopter for a very long time. Then I would be the guy who drops off snowboarders on the tops of mountains, or surfers on those kick ass giant waves.

    I started a ninja club in elementary school.
    I was the only member of the club, though. :ouch:



    And cars, trains, motorcycles... They've got nothing on a good turbopump, vacuum chamber, and RF magnetron sputter system.



    ^ How could an ISTP not want to work in that kind of environment?


    Although if I could get paid to do this, I would:

    Not bad.
    I have 2 ISTP males in my family.
    Life is never boring.

    haha, no

    2. You own a tool for every occasion.
    ......Just about, yeah. My side of the garage is a freaking mess, and it's fairly clean compared to how it was 1 year after I moved in. Overdue for a good reorganization/cleaning though.

    3. When you were young you wanted to be a: master thief, assassin, ninja, pilot, race car driver, etc.
    Nah, not really. Supposedly the earliest profession I wanted to be was a plumber. This was when I was ~5 years old. No idea why.

    4. You are actually happy when your computer breaks because you get to fix it.
    No, not really; that was me circa ~8 years ago but now I just don't care anymore

    5. Contrary to# 4, you get tired of your friend, aunt, uncle. etc. asking you to fix their computer, TV, etc. for the millionth time.
    Oh, yeah.

    6. Although to strangers you appear to be a risk taker, you know that everything is under control.
    Nah. I know that *nothing* is *ever* "under control", anywhere at any time.

    7. Get extremely annoyed when unwelcome people invade your space.
    Yeah.

    8. Anger is fleeting. You occasionally get very angry but it quickly dissipates.
    OH yeah.

    9. You do what you want, when you want, how you want, but would never infringe on another person ability to do the same.
    Sounds about right.

    10. Although you aren't always a nice person, you are a good person.
    Yeah.

    (11. You're not good at following arbitrary rules.)
    Sometimes, yeah.

    Just ask him if he likes you. If he's a true ISTP, he will want to be blunt and honest with his feelings when he decides to show them, but you may need to initiate a conversation along these lines with him. If you word it along the lines of a hypothetical or that you might like him, then it shouldn't be damaging to your friendship if he disagrees.

    I have two very good friends who have both expressed their love to me at some point or another. They are still my good friends.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
