    if an ESTP is anything like their type description, they wouldn't be on an internet forum.

    Plenty of 'em are on internet forums. Now, personality type forums? Not so much.

    Of course they're online. Why, just the other day I got another:
    We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the
    total sum of 4,600,000.00GBP (Four million Six hundred thousand Great
    British Pounds) in the intent of the deceased (name now withheld since
    this is our second letter to you)....

    I'm:

    - more organized
    -more ambitious, driven
    - more of a leader than follower (if I care about the goal)
    - good at getting people to do things
    - very good at seeing/following/developing the 'critical path' in just about any project
    - keep my eye on the big picture/overall goal and don't let the details get in the way. Actually I sweat the details but I don't let them stand in the way
    - I've got more business brains than physical
    - only athletic in a 'working out' sort of way, don't watch sports other than hockey
    - more academic - college graduate
    - not a daredevil - actually a wimp when it comes to dangerous activities
    - reads fiction
    - interested in theories - religion, psychology, culture, etc.
    - always looking to learn more about just about everything- also get lost on wiki or other internet sites reading about everything from the causes of French Revolution to how to how to attract birds. Therefore I'm pretty good at trivia.
    - creative - love to come up with original designs
    - look to the future and have to tell myself to stay in the moment

    Ok - so why am I an ISTP? lol

    Thanks Jeffster.

    I'm honestly starting to wonder if I'm getting anything out of my MBTI knowledge (about myself). I feel like a square peg trying to fit a round hole.

    i fit it pretty damn well, actually.

    ISTP Profile < entirely accurate, except it has been years since i have completely lost my temper

    Portrait of an ISTP < entirely accurate, except (again) about temper, and one contradiction between following my personal laws vs others' rules and commitments... it is not the boundaries or commitments that i dislike in and of themselves, but having them forced on me, just like rules.

    So today I'm back to thinking I'm definately SP. My son's teacher sent home this new Home Work Policy form stating that if the kid doesn't hand in the homework 3 times per marking period, then he gets a Behavior form , and if he gets 3 of those he gets a Pink Slip which needs to be signed by parent, yada yada yada. Please sign on the dotted line to acknowledge your understanding of this new policy.

    Well, I was so insensed by this I had to stop myself from blasting the teacher, principal and school board with an email. I sucked it up and signed it since I'm the same person who told his teacher on the first day of school "oh, if my son doesn't do what he needs to - please contact me ASAP." But this "policy" really freaked me out. Just what we need - another piece of beaurocracy standing in the way.
