Hello there my fellow SP brothers and sisters, long time lurker here. Been reading about MBTI for a couple of years but still have issues when it comes to what I'm. Maybe its that whole not being happy with a conclusion thing. For a long time I thought I was an ISTP yet for some reason I can't help but see things that suggest ESTP. For one every time I hear my voice when my friend records footage I sound very extroverted. Even my INTJ friend who I met on the forum along time ago was surprised by my voice. Didn't sound as monotone as he expected. I read up on the inferior functions of ISTP and ESTP. Its very hard for me to determine if I experience inferior Ni or Fe during stress. Still trying to figure out if I'm a dominant Ti or Se user
Not sure where I get my energy from. I have the tendency to be the most playful around friends, definitely the leader.
Things that make me consider ESTP;
Can read people well
Easy to talk to, many people don't feel judge
Don't self reflect a lot but when I do think in my head its normally about my goals.
I tend to ask others for their opinion and advice oppose to just formulating one of my own without feedback.I bounce my solutions off of my friends to make sure I'm choosing the best option.
Notice I message/text my friends everyday to converse. Can't think of a single day I have not done this.
Not a word master like many Ti dominants, language is a useful tool but I'm certainly more efficient with basic terms oppose to a huge vocabulary.
I can be impatient when it comes to stuff I want. Such as calling every store in my area to see if they carry a product I'm interested. Even to go as far as checking UPS every so often to see when my package is arriving. When I want something I want it now.
Not a one liner kind of guy.
I don't see things in a large scale blueprint or diagram when I'm troubleshooting something like many ISTP have spoken on. Perhaps a stereotype. But with me I try to ask the right questions to determine problem.
Have a very hard time coming up with self analysis like my INFP friend does. He knows so much about himself always self reflecting.
Like to look nice, hair, shoes and clothes.
ISTP elements -
Independent , self sufficient. I look up answers to my questions or problems.
Not talkative unless I have something to share or relate to the topic at hand.
Hard to get to know according to my friends
Don't smile, not very loud and definitely not very open
I do spend lots of time honing my craft
A skeptic and my own worst critic
I have a tendency to question my gut feeling. Been trying to do less of this as of 2013
Interest of mine are on the more fictional side of things like scifi, anime, fiction
Everyone who knows me considers me different very unique.
Random facts that may help-
Have a more dark personality compare to light and warm. Tho I'm got a fire inside of me that many of my friends envy.
My ENFP roommate and I have the best laughs.
Even when I'm quiet I'm always in tune with my surroundings. Such as people talking, or whats on the television.
I have conversations with Cashiers if they seem friendly or attractive
Love absolutely love eating food.
Have very quiet steps, sometime scares my coworkers and friends when I walk beside them.
Children seem to love me yet I don't want kids at all.
When I'm depress I do think of terrible outcomes for myself and I also have a hard time controlling my emotions. I lock myself up in my room and cry. More introverted and a loner than I normally am.
Last but not least I'm good at Killing Zombies haha
