You might want to read that again, Mom. He says "No" but then says "yes" in all of the details of his post.
Virtually everything he's posted in this topic sounds SP. Some people act like SPs can't function at work or something. Like we can only get jobs as professional stuntmen or drug dealers or something. I'll have you know I have an office job and right now am hard at work....posting on an internet forum.
Agreed here, he sounds very ISTP.
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
Yeah, overall I would say I'm just a little bit more J. I'm definitely a J when I'm working, and more of a P when I'm not. That's how I function. But I'm enjoying this evaluation, keep responding if you wish.
If you're a P instead of a J, it should mean you're more in tune with your perceiving function--which in an ISTP's case is Sensing.
How in tune do you think you are with your senses?
I'm in tune with them enough. I observe stuff that's going on, but sometimes i miss things. I am a visual learner. Many times I hear conversations which I'm not involved in, and I like to do hands-on activities instead of just sitting or standing around. I like good-quality food a lot too.
I don't know if that's the kind of stuff you mean.
...Makes you sound like an ISTP. Going by what you're like at work is not necessarily a great indicator as you're required to follow certain procedures and structures whether you want to or not.
^ This is what it looks like to me.
Interesting, yeah I was taught those J values, and my natural inclination is to just chill out, and be more P like, which I am in my social life. I tend to adjust as a J for schoolwork, while during the other times I would be P.
I'm not trying to bug you, but one more thing: Do you think you might be an ESTJ? (Wasn't that what you had at some point?) Having Si in second instead of first would mean you're not as "anchored to the past," and would give you a more flexible Te, switching the two functions in their strength.
