When there's nothing like something other people haven't managed to screw up yet.
When you listen to heavily underrated music..right?
When you're taken to a birthday dinner and when asked how you liked it, you truthfully tell them you didn't care for it and this person says "Well, at least you're honest," only out of hurt feelings and you still take it as a compliment.
When you watch action movies more than other categories COMBINED.
Just randomly found some pictures from a few years back and it reminded me of this one.
...you perfect things like packing the dishwasher or the back of the car before a long trip. Seriously, I have that shit down to a science. Case in point:
My tiny little Volvo 850 packed tight after the return trip from my freshman year of college. When I got it all unpacked and laid out in the house, people couldn't believe how much crap I managed to cram in my car.
well, i'm an ISTP and here is what i'm like:
~plan stupid yet fun stuff(example: hang gliding and ziplining one day :D)
~get a thrill from your fears(example: heights)
~fulfill threats that you give...
~all hell breaks loose and every evil soul, evil spirit, demon, fallen angel, etc. seems to enter your body for a split second as you explode from anger, then everything is fine again
~wake up and don't feel like talking to anyone
~doesn't give a crap about anything... except food in my case
~is almost always outside conversations that last a long time, just throwing in random comments that make people laugh
OH! And did you know that the 'P' people have stands for 'procrastination'? Everyone with a 'P' in their personality type has that issue.....
~Easily distracted with random things like squirrels! I yell birds instead of squirrel but it's okay...
~laugh at people's expression
~stop talking mid-sentence because you begin to ramble
~make people turn around when you yell something like "TREE!!" or "BIRD!" and point
Hi, great thread. I obviously had to read through the whole thing before posting the same stuff.
I'm coming up to 40 this year – it seems most of the posters are younger school/college students, but it seems the same rules apply not matter what age you are…
My rules include most of the above, plus:
You take the racing line on the motorway.
When the phone rings you either ignore it, or pick it up and carry it to the wife -without answering it.
Google is your best friend - the internet is brilliant, but hasn't quite got enough information on.
You HATE abbreviated text speak.
Attention-seekers are regarded lower than mass murderers.
You don't understand the point of phoning someone 'just for a chat'.
A day alone on the settee with a few films is just not long enough, and getting up to eat or go to the toilet are major irritations.
You communicate better by email/text.
You never know what you want to do in life.
You hate routine.
You like to keep things in perfect condition.
You hate people who don't know the difference between 'there', 'their' and 'they're'.
Sarcasm is the HIGHEST form of wit.
You have a drawer full of black socks because choosing between different pairs is so tedious.
You know you're invincible.
You're confident you can beat most people at most things, after a little research.
Song lyrics are irrelevant.
Meeting new people makes you feel sick.
You like looking at maps of different places, but end up going on holiday to the same place.
You don't do religion.
You have absolutely no concept of time, dates or years.
Being a sniper is the best job in the world.
Being a diva is NOT to be celebrated!
When you see a person with a clipboard asks you if you're a registered voter, and you want to say, "Fuck you."
...When you watch action movies and you notice everything wrong in the movie; like physics and technical details on vehicles and other things and machines
