    I have an active imagination that I enjoy tuning in to. I'm not mute, invisible or silent. I'm not a high school dropout -- in fact, I went on to college and eventually to get a masters' degree. I'm not and never have been athletic, unless you count enjoying taking long walks and dancing for fun. I'm expressive emotionally, even though I prefer responding to initiating conversations with strangers. I don't gravitate to pastimes just because they're dangerous, and in fact, would rather not defy death on a daily basis. I have a white-collar 40-hour/week job and don't complain about my regular hours. I'm fine with making serious commitments as long as the people and projects I'm committing to are worth it, in my estimation.

    I too am not a high school dropout as alluded to by Sarah, I am not mute in most situations in fact can be highly sociable but do need that down time. Most importantly, I have very little interest or knowledge about auto mechanics and industrial art. In fact during my school days I did not fare well in either.

    To clarify on this inquiry, it needs to be mentioned that Keirsey made a slip in describing SPs in comparison to the other temperaments since his descriptions for the four SPs are written when considering Se and to some extent Si for SJs. Clearly that could not be done with NT and NFs since they all have varying cognitive functions. So when SP is referenced are you consciously considering that ISPs will have a cognitive function that is dominant (Ti/Fi) that does not take into account the Se?

    After re-reading the type description, I couldn't really find anything that didn't fit. Possibly that we like sports; I don't usually care for team sports, but I love individual sports.

    Oh, and this:

    Suggestions for Development
    - May need to develop perseverance

    I'm pretty persistent when it comes to problem-solving. This trait I think I've developed from childhood, though, stemming from a mother who wouldn't let me quit. It can be useful, but it can be bad sometimes, as well. Recently I've been discovering that there is a time when it is appropriate to quit.

    -clumsy/uncoordinated and not particularly skilled at any athletic thing

    -useless with mechanic-type stuff (never interested me to learn)

    -would not do skydiving/bungee jumping/related things that involve me possibly dying from a great height (even though I realize they're fairly safe), or anything else with a real risk of death

    -career will be largely working with my brain, not my hands (plan to get a masters or phd)

    -I like stability and predictability in the things that matter (ie income)

    -I don't think I'm cold/ruthless, though I might appear that way sometimes

    Was there a specific description being referred to?
