I am envious of the physical ability of the guys in the video,
but I don't see how it is intrinsically ISTP?
Do we have a monopoly on physical expression?
These aren't just videos of anyone practicing a skill and getting kinda' good at it. These are introverts who spent hundreds or thousands of hours in lonely isolation practicing a skill until they were better at it than anyone else in the world ever has been. And, if you ask them about life, the universe and everything, they will give you a cogent and well thought out and concise explication. They are ISTPs, most of them anyway. And I recognize this from my childhood, where I first kicked a hacky sack 500 times in a row when I was 11 years old, and when I spent thousands of hours practicing fire poi by myself in my late teens / early 20s. And I didn't just get good at these skills. I became fucking amazing. IMHO, this is the easiest way to spot an ISTP. I haven't yet figured out how to spot them through intellect alone.
To escape TiNi, you must stop think-not-doing and just DO. All the thinking is preparation for DOING. I do not kick. There is no I. The leg kicks. All that thinking is preparation for doing, in the moment, without hesitation, second guessing or self-doubt.
First you train. Then you DO.
Yup, I can definitely see you practising this "Do, don't think" philosophy, even in theoretical discussions.
What's the matter - did you grow tired of that ISTP person shouting "pseudoscience!" at you, so you came in here?
Kinda, I was just looking at some of his other posts to get some context on why I have two angry, self-identified 'ISTPs' yelling at me. Then this just happened to catch my eye so I spontaneously posted.
Yea ISTP I didn't know that. I looked up some of his quotes and interviews and I laughed cause I know what he's talking about and where he's coming from. I find psychological intimidation to be more satisfying than actually going through with it.
