    That's pretty cool. Sometimes I like working on projects with my hands. I heard the video touch a little bit on the creative side of ISTJ, so I guess both ISTP and ISTJ like to create things in the physical world.

    Lol at Si being structured. Si is very unstructured when left unattended; it just flutters about its own little Si world.

    I feel like this really didn't explain much very well at all.

    I think Si could be somewhat structured. Since it's a left brained function, we need to perceive events and process them before we can act. This processing usually involves comparing the experience to past experiences and putting the experience it a little filing cabinet in our minds. All that sounds pretty structured to me.

    I agree... not as helpful as hoped. Although it usually is helpful to look at Fi vs. Fe, which he kinda mentioned. Basically whether someone wants things in harmony with themselves or they are more interested in harmony within the world at large.

    To me this was pretty helpful. I felt it articulated the reasons as to why I'm probably an ISTJ instead of an ISTP. Despite what online tests tell me half the time I've always had a feeling that I'm not an SP. I just happen to be a somewhat lazy, impulsive ISTJ.

    .... Talk about being a member with none of the benefits. :/

    Answering that question.... so subjective. Depends on situation. How would I know for sure which I prefer? I don't think it's possible for me to know. I don't feel like I'm always the same in every situation or have only one preference. I'm only consistent in apathy.

    "Look for the ISTP to have a little bit more animated facial expressions, especially around the eyes."

    Well, that is a first.

    The whole bit about ISTJs "living in the past" could explain my "throwback" fascination.
