    Default Time to cast your opinions.

    Yay, it's a place where all of you who doubt my type can cast you opinions! No funny business (Kraus? ).

    So, what have I been called? ESFP? INTP? ISTJ? I finally want to hear why you people think that way (CuriousSoul? ).

    I think you already know a lot about me from my posts... blah blah blah... I'm 300 lbs., I cry every night before I go to sleep, I smell like goat cheese, and I enjoy making love to cows in my spare time.

    Ok, that should be good... go.
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    will there be babies? what if daddy cow says no? are they legal? Can I watch?
    ever tried bulls, horses? Goats?

    Not that I think I have many ISTJ traits, but I want to know what it is about that can seem more... stubborn... or whatever you want to call it.

    XoX recently started a topic in Beta http://the16types.info/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3115 about the differences between an ISTp and an ISTj. Here was my response, maybe it'll answer one view of the differences in ...um...stubborness...

    Quote Originally Posted by anndelise

If we disagreed about something, it didn't affect our relationship much.

    The ISTj I dated would judge my actions/words, show it in his body stance and eyes, but would not (could not?) express it in words. He would not even listen to my explanations of why I chose such and such action. My explanations seemed to go in one ear and out the other. It's as if he'd make his judgement, and nothing in the world could penetrate through it. We lasted one stupid little disagreemeent, I was busy with a crying daughter so I couldn't immediately attempt to resolve it with him, he walked out of my world 2 minutes later. (Thankfully, as that was a very stressful relationship to maintain.)

    The most marked trait of Rocky that I see is actually quite Delta in nature, basically, his love of quickly concretizing a system and holding to it. From what I see, he tends to take things in a literal fashion, thereby permitting him to draw rapid, concrete conclusions about whatever he applies the system to. This could be interpreted as a type of perfectionism in a way, a prime trait of the Delta quadra, for the fact that the perfectionist, to be effective, must first assume the system to be static and non-changing, thus concrete. Rocky's least developed trait HAS to be self-doubt and self-questioning.

    So don't completely discredit the guy who voted ESTj. He may possibly have a point to consider.

    It was more a reference to our love affair than anything else :wink:

    But I think he would be SLI logical subtype rather than LSE.

    The way he looks when he's being photographed is exactly the way my ISTP brother looks when he's being photographed. The look that says "oh GOD she's taking out her camera, here we go, another one of her STUPID ideas... sheesh, let's get this over with quickly... and look, she forgot to switch the damn thing on AGAIN...". I'm afraid that little coincidence has prejudiced me irrevocably. ISTP.

    You too?

    I don't know where this perception comes from, because often times I will doubt something a lot (such as MBTI vs. socionics) before I really feel "comfortable" with it. Maybe I only show you guys the side of me that is already decided on something?

    Is usually sure of itself before it speaks, which is why MysticSonic sees ISTPs this way?

    That's what I mean. I mean you never reanalyze something you've already decided on.

    You are definitely an ISTp after reading this.

    I think you have average and are more intuitive than the average sensor based on this explanation. However, strong tends to go beyond what you mentioned and do a lot more things.

I can get restless and impatient (but not as big a firecracker as my ESFJ sister) which ledas to bursts of energy coming out. If I really get frustrted I might do something like kick the tires of the car, or hit something with a baseball bat.
    My ISTp brother is the same way. I think that everyone has that one thing that can tick them off. However, if someone manages to set that off on an ISTp then they will not be able to control it and will unleash it in a physical manner. This is probably a result of a lack of . There's been a few nasty situations where I might pushed his envelope and this occurred. However, I've learned to detect when this is happening and I back off and acknowledge defeat in order to avoid this conflict.

I notice the way people move, their mannerisms, facial expressions, etc. and when I see someone else I met I can automatically connect that person to someone else whom they remind me of. I'm starting to connect this with type, so hopefully I can first met someone and identify their type right away (this takes a little time, though).
    This sounds pretty cool to me. I'm able to do this as well by memorzing the interior of buildings, my neigbourhood and people's faces almost perfectly. I think this is a result of having a strong visual memory.I'm not nearly able to recall experiences as nearly as well as you do. Though, I believe strong takes this to a whole other level.

    Yes, I saw a video too and my ISTp brother was behaving the exact same way. I was the one randomly hugging people for no reason.

I have been told before that I "Just have to shut up". One guy I know from school told me that I'm "To gregarious for your own good" but I don't think that's the real me. The only way I can explain this is that I just throw my weak Fe function out and try not to be hurt by it. I still seem to enjoy spending time by myself to think.
    The strange thing is, my ISTp brother seemed a lot more extraverted than me when he was younger. He was the one who had all the friends and who got along with others. Me in the other hand, I was extremely shy and kept to myself most of the time. I was basically a loner up to grade 7.

I have a problem with feeling uncomfortable and try to fix it. For example, it's not uncommon for me to change shirts in the middle of the day if I feel sweaty or re-apply deodorant several times a day. I never foget about eating, not a chance (ask my parents ). I am also super-sensitive to touch. If someone touches me on the shoulder I would probably roll it in a little because I'm so sensitive to it. Unless of course it is someone who I don't want touching me, and I find them annoying. If that happens I would probably try and push their hand away.
    The first part relates to my brother behaves the same way, he usually thinks of this crazy idea to do for the future and is very excited about it and enlists for all of us to join. However, we usually don't end up doing it for whatever reason or we encounter problems along the way.

For some reason I feel an affinity with Mazzili; either we are the same type or I just want to be the same type as him.
    I agree, your is a lot more apparent than your . I would say your a logical subtype for sure because I think my brother is a sensory subtype and that is why I don't really notice him expressing that often, even though he probably does internally.

    You are definitely an ISTp after reading this, so I would say after reading this you seem like a more logical version of my ISTp brother. However, there is a chance he may not even be ISTp, but I doubt it.

    That is a very good question. I've typed my brother because of the descriptions and behaviour not using the functions. He doesn't necessarily express , but I'm guessing he uses it because I seem him expressing on random occasions. This is why I think you are a logical subtype because you use frequently and your more logical than my brother.

    So that's why. That explains a lot. On almost every photo I took of my brother, he either looks sceptical or he's making a face. I've got two photos where he looks natural. Two. Zwei. Dos. 2. You can probably appreciate the achievement.

    I knew a former ISTJ colleague who would never admit to be wrong about anything. When she was wrong, she would simply leave my office and then send me an email admitting that she "could be wrong". However, she would never ever admit that I was right.
