    Hubris.


    Tonight I realized something about myself. I am typically slow to anger, but certain things send my temper through the fucking roof.

    Being too "pointy".

    There you go. Not an ISTP.

    I think it's difficult to express my emotions, and I tend to stop talking to people when I try to figure out what I'm feeling. People often think that I'm sad or irritated when this happens.

    Also, ISTPs. Or maybe just me are useless at organising things. Probably stems from laziness but getting important everyday things done, like paying bills, car tax, changing addresses, getting my hair cut etc etc just don't get done. I am a total disaster in that respect. Thats why it helps when I am with someone efficient who can kick my ass and make me do these things!

    Maybe it is just me.
    I think I just don't attach any importance to shitty paperwork even though it clearly is important in life.... hmmmm or maybe my laziness is on its own level of lazy.

    At the very least, you are not alone. I tend to let things slide until they directly interfere with my personal existence, or I have a surplus of energy that I must expend. I can usually find other outlets that feel more 'constructive' though.... which is why they never get done.


    I'd chalk up about 25% to laziness, lol.

    @Lux. I work with two other ISTPs. We all work for a ENTJ. Before I knew their types we all had crazy similar viewpoints on things. Including the main point of what you said. I believe I even said something like "who does anything nice for someone unless they want something?" this was all met with nodding heads with the exception of the ENTJ.

    I don't see this as a negative. It generally is proven true with us when dealing with people and we view it as self-evident rather than pessimistic. At least I do.

    But to answer the OP. I think I may have slight ADHD. Also, I have an insanely hard time making decisions when it comes to how I feel about something or someone. Because it seems to change often and people can lose patience dealing with that. That's been a real problem for me.
