Hiking, yes. But for chrissake I'm not that masculine. I do like martial arts, and as you can see by my avatar (if you are ridiculous enough to know about American Girl dolls), I worked a fair bit on customizing her. I do find customizing many things fun in general, and ISTPs enjoy customizing... I don't put car engines or computers together, but I still have many other traits of an ISTP (that would fit a woman more than their type's stereotypical macho man). I love roller coasters, sex, and camping. I am blunt. I enjoy the straightforwardness of my partner, naturally. He is one of the few who understands the ridiculousness that is me. I am not an intellectual and I love airplanes - hopefully I can at least get a Private Pilot's License someday. As a part-time job, I want to be a pizza delivery woman over the summer... I could go on, but even though I don't want to be an engineer (I suck at math) or fix machinery (not my thing at all), I still believe I am very much ISTP. But my S is close to my N, which is why I really appreciate my ingenious boyfriend.

Me too.... another new ISTP female. Also like to customize stuff =) amongst other things........ anyways, i'm sure you will all hear my big mouth around here soon enough hahaha...... Glad to meet you all.
Nope, not into fixing cars, although I am into fixing computers. I like a lot of girlie stuff too, like experimenting with makeup and fashion and playing Hello Kitty video games. I pretty much like masculine and feminine activities equally, although you won't find me under a car or operating heavy machinery anytime soon (Too physically small for that kindof stuff, although I might try a car one of these days ;o). Flying a plane, skydiving, skiing, or pretty much any other individual sport, I'm up for. I still like to ride roller coasters too haha....sex and camping pretty much a given LoL! ;o)
Thx for the welcome! It is somewhat refreshing seeing that other female istp's exist.......=) I always wondered why I was attracted to all these "dangerous" things that my friends weren't, and why I wanted such totally different things. I felt like I was leading a double life, and much of what I did in my off-time was private and off-limits to them. When I found mbti, it explained everything lol...... No, I wasn't a "bad seed", I was just an istp and meant to be that way. I love being istp. It's a real whoop in the a**. LoL.....
Go for it..... thinking I probably will one of these days when I get other goals out of the way. It seems like life moves so much slower than I want it to due to: thinking things out. Sometimes I wish I were one of those people who could: Just do it. But alas, it wasn't meant for me. I have to analyze any little thing to death and: do it right. Else I won't do it at all. And when I don't follow those rules: boy do I veer off into bad places lmao. I'm not sorry, but I have found myself ending in despair a time or two. The most fun can also mean the most disaster.
