    Default ISTP: Naked in the Amazon

    So my ISTP training partner and close friend, who talks to me about everything under the sun, told me that he would like to be naked in the Amazon rain forest with nothing but a machete and me (with a fire starter kit.) Granted, he's been watching TV and wants to be naked and (un) afraid; he wants me for his partner. Is that a compliment in ISTP world?

    We actually discussed how we would best find food and survive and work as a team. It was a seriously weird and intriguing conversation born out of him saying he'd like to pose nude for me and a group of art students to draw. I told him just to keep his shirt on. The building has too many windows and I don't want to be responsible for heart attacks and car wrecks! He just grinned, a sneaky grin. I think my friend has a obsession with being unclothed. I expect to walk in any day and find him wandering around in his birthday suit.

    Anyway, maybe we will try the mind melt we discussed (a coup,e of weeks ago) instead!

    Do any ISTPs here have a desire to be dropped off naked with one other person and two items for survival in the Amazon or a swamp or desert or island? Or to go naked before an audience?

    Sounds like a compliment.

    And I dunno about others, but I do occasionally get a thrill from the thought of being nude in public. Confession: when I was a teen I would sneak out at night and dart around my yard and neighborhood naked. No one saw (I think).

    Clothes are kind of bothersome

    Haha....me, too. Just stay away from nude machete-wielding ISTPs. They are so much more dangerous than the clothed ones!
