Originally I thought I was an ISTP but recently I've noticed that I may have ISFP traits as well.
So far I know that I'm introverted because I'm not that comfortable around a large group of people, and even among my friends I'm fairly detached. I know that I'm S rather than N because I'm very action-oriented. I know I'm P rather than J because I'm spontaneous and don't like to live under strict standards. It's a matter of T or F.
Case for ISTP:
I'm quite practical. I don't buy things unless I have to, and this Christmas I'm thinking of getting a Swiss Army Knife because it seems like a fantastic multi-tool.
Very good hand-eye coordination. Use my skills in either sports or use of tools.
Practical > aesthetics. For example, if I was to evaluate a device, I wouldn't really care much for how it looks. I put a ton more importance on whether it works.
Trying to be an artist bores me.
I usually have a difficult time verbally expressing emotions.
I've been compared to Spock due to the lack of my outward emotions.
I've had difficulty with empathy.
I can be quite volatile. My views, mood, etc. can change day by day.
Generally aloof and distant from people.
I'm an engineering major and I really can't imagine being anything else.
I spent much of my childhood playing with LEGOs.
I'm generally fairly straightforward and concise.
I'm VERY easily bored and will usually give up on some sort of project if I get bored of it. For example, I won't finish a book if I find it boring.
Case for ISFP:
Sometimes I let my emotions get the best of me. When I get really upset or angry I have a difficult time focusing on what I have to do.
I can provide emotional support to those who need it.
I have a hard time letting go of things and can have difficult having that "F*** it" attitude that ISTPs are seemingly famous for. I can have long lasting regrets, and can bottle up anger for years.
I can easily be hurt, even though I don't show it, and people being judgemental makes me feel quite uncomfortable.
I can be a bit whiny, perhaps sometimes as a way to get pity.
I don't really like conflicts. Sometimes I quit during arguments because I get tired of the conflict.
I'm guilty of being passive sometimes, especially when disciplining people.
I do open up to people who are very close to me. And only people who are very close to me.
I do tend to analyze people and try to understand the deeper meaning of things.
I can be clingy sometimes.
Can be overly concerned/anxious/nervous about things.
I do like deep quotes
I used to write poems that a few of my friends actually thought were very good.
So far these are the ones that I can come up with for the time being. There may be more, but I forgot.
So what am I?
