    No. Most stubborn, yes. But not most mysterious.

    Sorry, I can't trust you on that. I have too much experience in this area.

    I can really relate to the jock and nerd smushed together part. In high school I was crazy about basketball but I also took pascal programming.

    Today I'm more nerdy than jock since I chose computers for a living. I wouldn't say the sides are in conflict though. It's more like they take turns balancing out in periods. I have weeks where I can be completely focused on sports and working out, then switch completely and become heavily introverted and be stuck in front of my computer learning new tech stuff/programming for extensive times.

    The introverted and thinking is the nerd part and the sensing and perceiving is the jock part.

    I had similiar issues in regard to nerd and stuff growing up. I enjoyed working on cars, I was a computer nerd, was really quiet and shy, in martial arts. The computer nerds I can chat with arent usually the physical side. I am a computer programmer, but give me a couple pallets of sod and a yard and I would jump at the physical challenge of laying all that sod. Seeing how quick I could do it, how high I can pile up the wheel barrow, and when I am done, it looks good and not like a rushed job.

    Most people dont get me because they superimpose the "average" man on me. I am not average though, I am different so I tend to confuse people though they usually dont realize they are confused.

Then the other one comes along and says, fuck that, I'm bored! Let's run amok viking-style! OMG that dog has a puffy tail!
    Sometimes you gotta give in to Se and experience it. If Ti isn't giving you results, say F it and get your hands dirty. Sometimes, it will bring you back to an aha moment and settle that over active Ti.

    I see myself as a nerd too, but when I put things in perspective, and observe the obliviousness of bonafide nerds (and their reactions to me as well), I question that. Just slightly more practical "navigation skills", I think. I'm still disconnected from people in my own way (really just as much, I think).. but somehow socially aware and not standing out in any kind of eccentric way. I had some nerdy friends growing up too, but by my teens, I "branched out" just a little, even if I was a closet freak. And I cared enough to know when or who to ever fly that freak flag with too. That's something real nerds don't do.

    edit: One thing in Lenore Thomson's book (and I think elsewhere) is the ISP proclivity to both be aware and question all of the trends and constructs and around them. There's a cynicism with Ti in particular described in her book, but at the same time, Se rebellion is much different than Ne rebellion. I don't even think Ne introverts know just how odd they really can be sometimes (which is cool too.. I envy that. Sounds liberating. I don't think I'm truly "out of the box". I just hate the box).

    My ISTP brother is very much like that too. He's a weightlifting, mountain biking, girl-magnet science nerd. I'm pretty sure he's a 9w8, too, which adds to his "split" personality. He's sweet and social, adventurous and physical, and observant and logical. And he's a bit of a prep, to round it out.

    I really think he's got a very balanced personality in general - very healthy. He's generally enjoyable to be around and he seems pretty content overall as long as he keeps moving. Too much of one thing seems to bog him down.
