    My wife claims she was a tomboy.... She loved softball, climbed trees, played with the boys, didn't dress very feminine, etc.

    She thinks she can do things like car repairs and household repairs, but she is clueless and worse, destructive. She told me she once changed out an engine, but it was her ESFP father and her ISTP brother, she just watched and added unneeded criticism.

    She was a walking repair disaster. But she believes she knows how to critique every repair.....

    She liked camping, but had never done any serious hiking or backpacking until I introduced her to it. She mildly enjoys playing sports and watching sports, but not football or soccer.

    I believe her to be a ISFP.

    I'm sure I was a tomboy. I think that had more to do with environment than type for me, as a kid. Now I don't care. I can change a tire, change my oil, fix a toilet, replace a faucet...etc. I look at those as great skills to have. It doesn't mean I want to do them though - I would prefer to pay someone. My ENFJ is fantastic around the house building and fixing things but he doesn't have the time. He only recently got on the outsourcing bandwagon I've been driving for awhile.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm definitely what I call "a guy's girl." Almost all of my friends are guys. I just don't get on well with girls, & the ones I do are usually pretty tomboyish themselves. Most of my close guy friends call me a tomboy, since I like sports & cars. I much prefer playing hoops than shopping. I'm not quite sure why, but the girls I'm somewhat friendly with in my dorm never invite me out with them. I used to NEVER wear makeup, but now I usually wear just foundation, because my face is naturally pretty red.

    I was one when I was little. My excessively competitive ways did not sit well with most other females around, it was always "dial it down". Which I was having none of. Plus I received special treatment from the boys as "only girl in the group", to the extent of being in charge, so I was pleased being that it's the only way I can exist in a group.

    I used to be a tomboy. And then I realized I was just a boy.

    I've been through that tomboy stage, but now I'm a girly girl
    Though when I have online heated debates in my native language, I usually get mistaken for a man..
