You kind of start to think that they don't have emotions because they seem so, uhh, stoic... and then you accept that maybe you'll never get to experience emotions with them and then they'll surprise you and unexpectedly show some emotion and you're like
This sounds like my Pottery professor. Who, consequently, I had a bit of a crush on by the end, but that's beside the point. I spent the first month or so thinking he had very little emotion besides low-level annoyance. Then I realized that what I thought was annoyance was his normal face and that he was just really low affective intensity and I started watching for subtler expressions of emotion and speech and suddenly he made a lot of sense and turned out to be a really cool guy (even if his idea of expressive was about 50 notches below mine). It was a fun challenge to learn how to interpret him a little.
Is confusing supposed to be a bad thing?

I notice on the forum and in sports that dealing with istp's can be very confusing task in alot of ways as they are very unpredictable.Do Istp's confuse you or do you find them to be pretty straightforward?
I think they're refreshingly straightforward. I don't get the fuss over interpretation. I have a collection of STP friends.. They're great. Sure, they're erratic, but there's always method to that madness, to some degree. Expect the unexpected, and don't expect them to give a fuck. Value freedom, authenticity, fearless exploration. Tends to work for me, generally, in terms of connecting. They just wanna do their thing, man.
