    Because even though I desperately need to go to bed and get some sleep, I'm reading this hilarious topic instead.

    3. THEY NEVER LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES!!!

    Honestly, everything else is this thread is minor for me compared to that. It's damn-near appalling to see them doing the same thing over and over again. It's so in contrast to my NT "Self-diagnosis & Trouble-shooting" functions that there's just no way to wrap my head around it. I pretty much quit my last job because I couldn't deal with my ESTP boss's slip-ups anymore.
    I don't think it's something to be considered on a daily basis, but usually long term mistakes that may be repeated years or a decade later like getting themselves from under financial difficulty with credit cards but being back in the same or a worse predicament down the road or repeating the mistake of having affairs and not learning.

    In my opinion SPs are not going to make the same mistakes in the short-term, but our impulsive natures render us back in a position we found ourselves years earlier.

    I agree with the second, but the first in my opinion could go for any type with the exception of maybe SJs. The third is completely untrue for me since I am conscious of having things I loan out, returned.

    These are all stereotypes and I doubt if on average SPs do these types of things anymore than other temperaments. The first is most likely an extraverted example in general since the average introvert will look before leaping. However the first example could be the result of the second example. I for one am not going to ever bungi jump, cliff dive, base jump or anything that I do not have control over. Hell I don’t even roller skate or mess with skateboards.

    3. Quit being so sensitive wussy!
    Since this would most likely occur based on poor Fe-ing, I don’t think that ISTPs would be any more prone than INTPs. Yet again this is most likely in my opinion the result of poor social skills in general. The second example would never be expressed, but may be well thought if I feel that I am being manipulated. Otherwise that’s s a stereotype (goes back to ISTPs making good military personnel where INTPs making the worse from conversations with members of INTPC). Most likely I would be passive aggressive in completing the request or directive only if I felt manipulated or completely disagreed with the directive. The final is partly true, but could be turned toward me when I am too stressed.

    The either can't predict or don't care about the consequences of their actions.
    The final is totally true since the Ni is so low down the totem poll, but there is no indication that SPs in general are irresponsible. In fact everything that I have read and from my own personal experiences ISPs can be overly responsible. I am ambivalent about the first example since I can see from someone else’s perspective that I did screw them over when there was no intent.

    2. they minimize things. They say things like, "what are you so upset about? it's just water on the floor" (that you asked them to clean up 10 times in one f?%%%**!!! day!!) and then laugh.
    3. little or no ability to see anything beyond what is right in front of their faces
    Actually the first example could be true for me, as it could and most likely is for all introverted judging types that may need additional information before answering. Otherwise, I usually give quick responses to things that I have experience in. As for the second, I would be the one ranting based on your example but can see myself thinking that someone is over dramatizing a matter. Ummmm the final is a stereotype that goes back to SPs lacking the ability to theorize.

    Bolded part: yup. That's how you should read all this.

    But then I get to the next phrase, and now I have to get serious again: Have you ever lived with (i.e., shared a schedule, life, or budget with) an ISFJ or similar?

    I've lived with both SPs and SJs. There's a big big big big BIG big big big big BIG big big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG REALLY HUMUNGOUS big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG incredibly big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG big big BIG big big big big BIG stupendously and rather big difference.

    I'm not sure how you move from the first comment to the next in the next breath.

    No, we perfectly understand why you're angry, we just wish you'd hurry up and get over it already. We (or at least me), could be ready to kill someone, and come back a minute later and everything's back to normal from our perspective.

    They either can't predict or don't care about the consequences of their actions.
    It isn't either, it's just those consequences are often of less importance to us than they would be to you. I know exactly what will happen, if I think that outcome is the preferred one, then that's what I go with. To be honest, although some of my decisions may seem "dumb" to some people, I haven't regretted any of them.

    2. they minimize things. They say things like, "what are you so upset about? it's just water on the floor" (that you asked them to clean up 10 times in one f?%%%**!!! day!!) and then laugh.
    Sounds like me....but, that is a positive trait at times as well. When there's a crisis or something like that, it is quite helpful.

    LOL Jennifer that was funny. Okay I'll bite on your inquiry (at least I think it's an inquiry) but forgot the question after trying to count the number of times big was used. Oh yeah, ISFJ? I think I may know where you are going with this and if so, you are correct if you are insinuating a curbing of the SP free will if living with an SJ. But I don't want to put anymore words in your mouth until you can breathe and I will wait for you to expound on your inquiry.

    That's how I am, too (mostly)...there are some things I probably wouldn't want to repeat given a similar situation, but I have very few actual regrets.

    I have definitely learned from my mistakes. That doesn't mean I haven't moved on to making other mistakes, though. Or repeating the same mistakes I learned from because it was just so darn exciting and maybe I'll learn some more this time!

    Of course. How much fun could there possibly be in learning from mistakes and..I dunno...DOING SOMETHING RIGHT?


    Irresponsible, terrible with money.
    Think everything is a big fucking joke especially when someone else is left to deal with the carnage in their wake. Not MY problem no more, mane.
    Too trusting. Too stupid. Too emotional. Too volatile.
    Unable to make a decision or stick with a decision.
    Guess what? Crying me a river isn't going to make what you did disappear like it never happened.

    Actually, I think there's a lot of fun in that...sometimes.

    I'm great with money. I spend it making people happy usually. And not always just myself.

    And I don't think everything is a joke...just most things. The rest is pretty much true, but on the bright side I'm easy to blame, so you always have a scapegoat.
