    I voted Nerd.

    The nerdiest thing I ever did was in little league basketball.. the coach asked us to pick a name for the team. I can do jock things, but the actual "jocks" were like "The Lakers!", the "Celtics!" I was obsessed with my Colecovision at the time. So I picked the "Colecos".

    I've been all five so i'm actually more of a jack of all trades.
    Used to be a heavy basketball jock in high school, then turned nerd in my twenties and now work with computers for a living.

    Hey I remember you from P Cafe on a Bruce Lee thread started by the Great One (lol he converted to here too!) That place sucked anyway. Too many rules. Anyway it's great to have another ISTP perspective! And obviously Bruce Lee was a very intuitive ISTP, more intutive that lots of people of intuitive types!

    True, same one. Never really figured why both of you got banned from that place. There is too much censorship over there.

    I'm not an ISTP, but of the ISTPs I've known, mechanic seems to be the most common subtype. I'd associate jock more with ESTPs than ISTPs, and nerd with INTPs. Bum and daredevil are fitting, but less so than mechanic.

    Out of 7 billion people on the planet, I'm sure a great number are ISTPs, and barely a fraction are mechanics.

    I guess it applies to anyone. In a way though, I'd almost say it applies to many ISTPs specifically. I bet a lot are average Joes and Janes, but too rebellious/individualistic to be like ISTJs, not imaginative or inventive enough for NT, not engaged enough with people to be extroverts or Fs. The daredevil mechanic is the shit happening in between a lot of average shit.
