Why is this thread here anyways? I kind of want to say that an SP association with tools (in the fixit sense) is a little offbase. The tool assocation (like in the case of ISTPs being called "crafter") is meant to illustrate extending oneself with just about any object. Tools in the caveman (or cavewoman) sense. Having a tacit relation to objects, and relating their uses to a situation in creative ways. Talking about just chainsaws and screwdrivers is being too literal. One could be into those things, but maybe they just have a relationship with a guitar. Keith Richards calls his guitar a machine. Or maybe they're Chuck Yeager. A skateboarder might go out for hours alone, and relate to a plank of wood like it's his best friend. If he said the wrench he uses to tighten his trucks is his favorite tool, that'd be wrong. The skateboard is his favorite tool.
