    I can't snowboard, so that's a given :)

    I respect people who are real. Who don't put up a false front or pretend to be perfect. People who don't give a rat's ass whether they're liked or admired; they just do what they do because it satisfies them. I respect intelligence tremendously - it's the way to my heart. I admire clever humor, sarcasm, and aloofness.

    On the other hand - I honestly admire those that give of themselves for causes they believe in; people who are selfless and giving, caring and nurturing. I mean, I don't really dig it for myself, it creeps me out when someone tries to take care of me, but I've never been a nurturing type and I feel like that's a type of strength I can't understand, and would like for myself - especially as a mom, with an ESFP child who needs a lot more nurturing and affection than I'm naturally capable of providing.

    I hate most people, in general, and even the ones I've become close to over the years are starting to grate on me lately with all their namby pamby neediness and their defeatist attitudes about their lives and romances. But I go through this every few years, weed out a bunch of people, and start fresh. In a few months I'll be dying for adult contact again, I'm sure.

    I'm with Chiagirl on this one. I don't mind if people snowboard better than what I do, but I can get mildly annoyed if you rub it in my face. And you don't want to mildly annoy an ISTP..

    I'm drawn to people who are smarter than me/better than me at anything. It doesn't bother me at all, unless they make me feel bad about it. I just see it as a chance to learn/better myself.
    I respect people who are true to themselves.

    People who laugh at my stupid ass jokes and let me be who I am.

    Genuine people - especially those not looking for the world to love them for being so incredible.

    Also, anyone with a sense of real purpose in their life. It's rare to find, but special when you come across it in somebody.

    Oh, and anyone who genuinely respects me and looks to see things from my point of view (they don't have to agree).

    But if some patronises (subtley or obviously, I can see it from a mile off) me, or talks down to me because they think I'm wrong/stupid then I lose all respect for them in an instant.

    "There are times when I look at people and I see nothing worth liking." - Plainview

    But in all seriousness... It's truly random who i like and who i don't. Half the people i like (it isn't a long list) i don't even know what it is about them i like. I either do, or i don't. Something that will make you loose all my respect is not being able to accept the fact i don't want to be around you.

    On the other paw, there are people that i think would annoy most ISTPs to no end that I've gone out of my way to gain a friendship with and still couldn't say exactly why.

    anyone that knows what they're doing. anyone that has struck out on their own away from the norm and is happy. stuff i can admire, you know?

    it's really hard for me to take direction from an incompetent manager. one sign of weakness and i'll disown you as a boss.

    someone that says i dont know, instead of making up bullshit.

    integrity is huge with me.

    I respect realness and people that stick to their word.

    Like a few others have said, I don't care if someone's better than me at something as long as they don't rub my face in it. I lose respect for those people very quickly, as well as people that are condescending or unnecessarily rude. I also dislike people that talk excessive trash and then get upset that I'm not laughing along with them. Like the clip that Zyn posted, you really don't want to annoy me to that the point that I fire back.

    On the flip side, I'll also seek out people that are better than me at a given subject so I can learn from them. My drumming mentor is so much better than me that it's ridiculous. Yet, all he's ever done is show me respect, help me, and tell me what I need to hear at times. I have nothing but respect for that and him.

    I like people who are not afraid of being themselves, who are sincere and genuine, who have no hidden agenda in their dealings with others. I respect people who have integrity, who stand by what they believe and who do not make a big show of themselves. I find people with a quiet confidence about themselves very attractive.

    I cannot respect people who always 'go with majority' and have no opinion of their own.
