    Moved from NT Rationale.

    And m32, you sound pretty INTP to me. I used to have a fascination for martial arts, was pretty physically aggressive at times (especially by female standards), and have high visual/spatial skill. My INTP brother is even more physically aggressive. He used to punch other kids when he was little (getting into playground scuffles), and even now he is a fairly rowdy person when he feels like it.

    if m32 stands for male of 32 years of age, then you're probably an ISTP, if you're far younger than this, then there's a pretty good chance that you're an INTP.

    edit: *reads thread* yup, that's pure INTP there.

    Another question is, do you ever hit anybody on impulse or do you just want to but then don't.

    I only break things in a flash of impulse. Except in the case of Muslims.

    If you trace medieval and oriental martial arts back to its roots you usually find a lot of neoplatonic and taoic philosophical speculation. Not to mention applying strategy in battles.
    Yes, and along with all that, there's a real inherent aesthetics to the movements -- a meshing of 'truth' (the pure physics) and beauty. It's that predictable meshing I find fascinating.

    I always love watching Jackie Chan movies (or other asian pics with martial arts) where there is intricate movement and even interaction with the environment -- endless possibilities but all defined/constrained by scientific law, it's very absorbing and my mind is always racing to juggle what might happen next and how it will play out.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You should read and study about European martial arts from the late Medieval period and Rennaissance. It is usually a mixture between effective commando style fighting - the kind you would find in military training manuals, or on the other hand intricate visual philosophies linking the body with astrological and neoplatonic ideas and concepts. You see this chart, right - with these beautiful and intricate patters and they denote the different parts of the body and then there would be a second layer which would denote the attack strategy and it's combination with prelearned techniques would allow a person to instantly pick someone down from any angle.

    Of course i barely understand anything of this and most of these books are in antique collections. Within 20 years they will probably all be found on the Internet. Does anyone like dance, like ballet or Fred Astaire?
