    Okay, that's just hawt. I'd probably enjoy seeing you take your clothes off, too.

    Find someone who you know who has tools you can borrow or come over and use before you invest.

    I find I'm the opposite of you. I dislike technology. Phones and computers and...ugh. I lose patience quickly if I can't "see" what's going on but that doesn't mean I can't understand them with practice, you know? Some things take longer than others to catch up on. Doesn't mean you can't do it.
    That last paragraph is the exact way I feel about mechanical things. The only reason I'm not like that with phones/computers is familiarity, and even then if I'm unfamiliar with something and it's not obvious how to work it I get impatient very quickly. :steam:

    My old man is an XSFP and not especially into mechanics etc. He could hold his own with basic DIY things but not mcuh more.

    He is really into sport though.

    My ESFP brother is both a skilled carpenter and craftsman.

    Many pieces of our house´s furniture are made by him. His handcraft work is also very popular.

    Seriously, I haven't seen a single mechanically incompetent SP reply (unless they just don't want to cop out to it).

    I don't see why MBTI nazis (who I call "briggots") always give SPs the intellectual shaft and assume they're stupid.

    It's equally impressive to be able to be independent and capable with your hands as it is to ruminate on physics and Socrates in an ivory tower...

    Not that they're mutually exclusive. I'd like to step out of that ivory tower, but I can't figure out the damn LOCK. :steam:

    I'd reckon to say that most SP's don't care to prove ourselves to anyone but ourselves.

    This is why others may not know how mind-blowingly brilliant we are.

    Also, it's not fun if people start relying on you too much for these things.. Great. More work. Best to keep your brilliance under wraps.

    I can totally rock a wrench set I've been taking things apart and getting them put back together (most of the time) since I was a little kid. I've been the guy people call to get a difficult problem fixed for as long as I can remember. It's nothing special to be honest, anyone can do it if they pay attention to how the pieces right in front of them fit together. With simpler stuff I usually just have to convince them them to give it a try. Seems like most people are too afraid to get their hands dirty with some trial and error... if they gave it a shot they would realize it's not as complicated as it looks at first!

    Yeah, it doesn't even faze me when somebody calls me stupid. I am what I am, Sam I am.

    It DOES annoy me when somebody criticizes what I do or my work, though. :steam:
