-Can't decide whether to describe this girl as an introvert or an extrovert. She says she's not the type to make friends at parties, etc. (The very odd thing is that we started our friendship at a party, but we both agree that for both of us this was an exceptional incident.) Yet, to me she is quite a socialite and tends to have a lot of invites, etc. She's sometimes in the mood for a fairly deep conversation over a glass of wine, but she's more likely to prefer going out to see a band or dancing or something.
-A very very talented artist, mainly in the area of illustration/children's books etc. She loves urban landscapes and has the talent for seeing with a very different and unique perspective, and there is usually something rather childlike about it too.
-As far as relationships/guys, she hasn't had many but I think has had quite a few opportunities. She generally just avoids getting involved partly because of strong religious principles combined with the fact that she basically feels at this point like she couldn't commit to a serious relationship (she's in her late 20s.) She has said that she finds the idea of committing to one guy permanently pretty difficult and rather scary.
-Loves small children, has a great way with them so is always helping out her friends who have small kids. She doesn't seem to be hankering after children of her own, though (probably also partly to do with the point above!) and having quite a lot of friends with little kids works well for her.
-Gives off a bit of a ditzy vibe. Tends to be flaky about answering text messages, etc, but confesses that she gets annoyed when others don't answer hers right away...
-For the most part, pretty unsentimental.
-Finds my tendency to answer "Do you want a stick of gum?" with a dissertation on gum-chewing very amusing and slightly irritating.
-Very cool and laid back. I've seldom seen her particularly upset about anything, but it seems to happen occasionally when she feels like people are trying to take advantage of her, or when they don't appreciate her efforts or give her some appropriate recognition.
I tend to think she's ISTP, perhaps a fairly outgoing ISTP. ESTP just doesn't seem to fit. I was leaning toward ISFP because of the artistic talents and the way with children, but she just seems so much more hard-nosed than someone like me. I wondered at first if she might be INFP but now that I know her better, I don't get much of an N vibe off her.
