    Default Hi all

    I'm not sure exactly what type I am, but I pretty sure I'm a TP of some sort.

    So, here's the deal... I'm 35, male, married, work in the software industry as my day job, and I'm trying to get my own web design company off the ground (sixthplanet.com). You might get some sense of my personality from visiting my site. I have one dog and three cats. I don't sleep much.

    I enjoy technical challenges, both in my work and my play. In fact there's not much difference to me between the two. I love mountain biking, especially downhill biking. I love skiing and climbing too. And snorkeling and scuba, but I don't get to do those much. I miss the ocean.

    I love learning new technologies, trying to figure out how things work. Every couple of weeks I tackle a new technology, and when I do, I have to re-evaluate how I might put it into use somewhere. Immediately I start to think about what I can do with it, and I love that. I like photography, video editing, and digital artwork too, and a lot of these interests interact with each other. Every time I learn something new it goes into the vast cauldron and the ingredients combine in new ways...

    In terms of work, I love creating things. And improving things - I can't see something without imagining how I'd improve it. This applies to things like Obama's campaign (which people said was well-organized, but I thought it could stand a lot of improvement), software architecture, and my house (which I've remodeled extensively, a lot of sweat equity involved there). I hate incompetence and inefficency with a passion. I love parentheses (and ellipses... the ellipsis is my favorite punctuation mark(s?)) I also like emoticons

    I'm pretty unconventional and very open-minded. I have a pretty twisted and dark sense of humor that I have to keep in check. I'm not easily offended but I easily offend, it seems. I'm perfectly happy being solitary for hours on end but I do like to party with my friends... sometimes a little too much. I work hard and (perhaps to compensate) I play hard.

    In the Enneagram world I'm a 7. I think my wings are pretty balanced, maybe tilting a little towards 8 one day and 6 another.

    So... what type am I?

    I don't know your type, but hello, and nice to meet you.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Welcome.

    We have many common interests, but it sounds like I spend more time thinking about them rather than doing them compared to you. I would have to guess your type as esTP (low E and S).

    Welcome. You sound like an xSTP I would guess (can't say about the E or I).

    Thanks for the responses...

    I've tested as ENTP before, with borderline E, moderate N, borderline T, and very strong P. I haven't taken the test in 5 years or so. I started wondering about this recently when I ran into an ISTP description that seemed to be spot on. (But a lot of ISTP descriptions don't fit too well either.)

    Maybe my S has gotten stronger and I'm closer to xxTP now...
