    That's sensing not emotional, what does that definition have to do with your argument? Someone who is not keen with disagreements is emotionally sensitive.

    That's the definition of "sensitve" I am using. So when I said "sensitive", that's what I meant.

    I got more into enneagrams early, and barely have any background in mbti, so.....
    Here you are clearly describing STPs as emotionally sensitive not "sensing" sensitive. How is that what you meant?

    Yea, that too...... disagreements do seem to bother some STP's. I think that may be tied to the "territorial" issues, though..... sometimes. I'm not really sure, yet. Pretty much just exploring it...... But the ego thing is still something for me to think about. The pissing matches and scuffles..... which I have been involved in too. I think it all may be more territorial issues. Any thoughts on the scuffles or pissing matches? I think the "sensitive" would still mean "quick to respond", and yes, sometimes in an emotional way. I know my dad was quick to respond, territorial, and emotional at times over it. I have been as well, and I've seen other STP's here do the same thing. (Some of them, to me! lol).
    Mentioning maturity levels was a good point, but since it seems that some STP's never grow up, it seems to be a part of them.

    I've gotten in plenty of pissing matches. I admit it. Not necessarily obnoxious or rowdy, but things have/can/do bother me. Even younger, I'd end up in fights a lot. I try to be cool, but if I have something to say, I say it. I think people who act too calm about everything are usually careless. Or trying to be buddha or something.

    Me too, in the past. I've started to calm down as I get older, but, I still have my moments.

    Whether a situation is reacted to with anger or sadness it is still an emotional reaction. Yet showing anger is not viewed as "being emotional". I consider it the same thing. When we are expressing anger or sadness we are therefore sensitive to whatever triggered our responses. So we all are sensitive in different areas. We are all callous in others.

    Everyone has a little ISTP in them, but when someone says you are super ISTP it means you must have found the box you fit in...but to be ISTP means you really dont care...stay out of my box...only non-istps allowed...I dont believe in group mentality...I believe in my mentality...as screwed up as it is...love it or leave it.

    And to be honest I wont be back to read comments, I just felt like posting this in a relevant location.

    You don't react to everything you sense you're just aware of it. Sometimes you can react if you choose to, your awareness of your surroundings might cause you to react to things more than others.

    One thing is that it's almost impossible for me to tell the difference between someone who doesn't react emotionally and someone who feels apathetic.
