    You're too weird to be ISTP. And I don't mean weird to be insulting. It is what it is.

    I've been that weird before, but it took a bag of shrooms, some lsd, and a psychotic meltdown over a period of two weeks.

    The only reason why anyone would type you ISTP is because they are N valuing types, who can't help but conjure up different possibilities. They're like the cool kids who have to be "different", for no reason. ISTP is a "novel" answer, in their minds.

    ISTP's can be opportunistic, to say something.


    I know I've taken advantage of some 'status change' loopholes in my day.

    Just because I could be one though doesn't mean I currently believe myself to be one.

    Speaking of one and talking about my type, I know The Great One turns half the threads he comments in into discussions about his type, and it looks like I'm headed in the same direction!
    ISTPs - you mean people who claim that as their type for a month? Ah, yes. During the month they claim to be ISTP, they cheat. Special.

    Oh gosh, and I'm even more guilty. So that's not the purpose of the forum?


    On topic, I've read that it's common for ISTP's to have this issue- but that could be nonsense. I'd say being Ti dominant they would be somewhat detached from people but also valuing fairness be "social" in their affections, wanting to give many people a fair chance. Then Se would add a physical and sensual orientation, and Ti would rationalize behavior. Of course this doesn't mean all ISTP's are likely to be cheaters, but this could explain the ones who are.

    It's not uncommon for men to be coerced into marrying, which might explain the fact that he's not concerned about setting a date for the event.

    Also, it's perfectly viable for men to ''love'' a specific woman and feel physical attraction for other women.

    Whether or not they will act on that depends on way too many variables, though SPs in general seem more willing than other types to act on their impulses - which shouldn't be generalized and yada yada yada *inserts politically correct speech implying that I've transcended typology*.

    that's my thought as well - it sounds to me like he made a verbal commitment but isn't backing up by an emotional one, either there was an ultimatum involved and he just didn't want to loose her so he chose it as the lesser evil, or he did it to make her happy while not thinking of whether he actually feels committed to her.

    Actually, loyalty is something that comes up frequently in the ISTP descriptions as a strength. So you're kinda full of shit on this one. You'd get further if you argued that ISTPs might be more likely to seize the moment and act without thinking of the consequences, resulting in cheating. Really though, type is not really a useful factor to think about in this case. It might affect the details of the way someone is most likely to cheat, but I don't think it affects their likelihood of cheating at all.

    If you want another personal anecdote to add to the collection, I'm more monogamy-oriented than most people I know and have never cheated. I don't even like casually dating more than one person at a time, personally, although I don't think there's anything wrong with the practice.

    Btw, I'd be extremely, extremely surprised if you are an ISTP. You are very unlike any ISTP I've known either here or offline.

    What?

    I meant that the Ni was probably why you, a more likely INTx, came across as being "too weird to be an ISTP", and why every ISTP on this thread has been hesitant to add you to the fold, preferring to see you as INTJ. If our situations were comparable, that would mean I was an ENTP, which is highly unlikely.
