    hmm, that's kinda hard to say. I mean, I have an ISTP ex and he LOVES reading, esp SciFi. He's a bookworm, has a BA in History. He actually wanted to be a writer when he was younger.

    but that's just experience from one ISTP though, so.

    Carl Jung identified as ISTP in his adventurous younger years and he was the master of all things metaphysical, which seems to be a very atypical ISTP hobby, although in his later years he retyped as INTP. But then again, Keirsey and CelebrityTypes.com think Jung was INFJ! That might make his deep intuition make more sense.

    He could have been an ISTP with equally developed Se and Ni - that's the explanation that I think most fits. I find that the 'intuition' that he uses more Ni than Ne.

    Mensa puzzles, logic problems, and Sudoku. That's how I relax.

    Yes... nothing quite trumps logic games/puzzles.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    There's a great phone game called "OnetouchDrawing". Has a tactile solve while being mostly a mental game, however, one in which trial and error is a possible method of solution.

    So anyway, I tend to enjoy listing to audiobooks while I am doing stuff that doesn't require internal monologue, such as doing chores, working on my car, or working in the lab. It helps make the boring, repetitive stuff enjoyable.

    As long as its actually useful. Star Trek and that type of stuff tend to bore me. Where someone took science and then extropolated out using there imagination. To me its no longer science at that point and really isnt learning anything more then what someone else dreamt up. I love to reverse engineer stuff...practical brain teasers


    I once owned a Kenny G CD. Its buried in a CD album somewhere I think. I dont use CDs anymore.

    Reading. Lots of reading. My intuition is well developed.
    I run and workout as well. Nothing like an ISTP male in shape.

    Running. Yes. It's a spiritual thing for me. Gives an immediate sense of accomplishment if you have a difficult run and finish. Mentally toughens you and gives peace at the same time.

    I just like the feeling of endorphins and sweat after the run is finished.
    If I dont get that stress relief I'm quite grumpy.
