    Uhmm... The action oriented, do whatever it takes thing.... It's not necessarily a physical action like sports right? I'm just wondering what you guys are interested in? Like what do you guys usually do so much that you like to do alone?
    Well, you can't always judge a book by its cover. I may seem stoic and tough on the outside, but I certainly don't fit the super-heroine stereotype. I'm a mixed bag of nerdy and hands-on. The compartmentalization of social groups is also a thing. As a result, everyone who knows me tend to have different perspectives of me as a person - neutral, positive, and negative.

    As far as laziness, a lot of us aren't lazy. Procrastinators? Yes, since we do like to conserve our energy and frankly a lot of us work best closer to deadlines. My need for action comes out in various ways. Firstly, I'm not one for sports, though I do work out. However this is something I prefer to do alone. I am also an visual artist, and I don't like math much. Reading, repairing old gadgets and furniture around the house, traveling (locally or not), and listening to music are only some of the things I do alone.
    Can't speak for anyone else here, but if I invite someone to join me in a personal hobby, that means I consider you a friend.

    About your ISTP "housemaid," it sounds like she seriously hates her job and doesn't know how to tell you. I've worked as one, and I eventually quit because of how boring it became after a few weeks. But since this is a concern between you and your friend, I recommend talking to her about it face to face. If she IS an ISTP, either her Fe is terribly underdeveloped, or she's in a loop. Either way, good luck.

    We have the function stack which creates a natural aptitude for kicking ass as efficiently as possible. duh.

    The same way ENFPs are naturally good at vomiting rainbows.

    Not sure of the age of your friends, but it becomes more apparent as we age and develop our functions more.

    Basically, imagine if you put the personalities in a jungle with only a roll of duct tape, a ball point pen, a tile grouting gun and an empty can of beans. Then left them to their own devices.

    The ISTP is probably gonna come out having made the best redneck engineered tool imaginable and one that actually ends up being useful to them.
    Most types would probably have starved trying to figure out how any of these items could possibly of been any use.

    The ISTP would probably have the highest chance of survival with those items out of any other type

    Along with Jaguar he listed Tigers too as parallel to ISTP...most lone cats are.
    Lion is social so he listed it as an ESTP along with wolf, the louder and more social cousin of ISTP.

    I was trying to find tiger gifs but I couldn't find any good ones so, I used lion.

    I know it wasn't the best choice but I wasn't trying to be specific.

    When I was a kid I used to love big cats, I know a decent amount about them.

    Not necessarily. Interest may vary. It can be anything...the usual stuff. We tend to do things that engages our senses (vision, smell, taste, hearing, touch), anything that engages us physically. We prefer to experience things first hand.
    I see I see. One more question, haha sorry. I think my ISTP friends are more of a "home-person". At least the people that I know loves to be at home than outside. One likes, reading manga, watching anime series, creating fictional characters and stories on the internet, and roleplaying on forums. Another likes reading manga, watching movies, and searching the internet. I can say the same for the last two friends that I have. They all like reading and watching. So I guess that engages the vision and hearing? But its not much of a physical stuff than other hobbies I can think of. Do you think those are considered one of your hobbies even if thats not really physical imo haha. Not re ally stereotyping here, its just that all 4 (yes, I just tested another ISTP so they're 4 now) of them seems to have common hobbies. XD

Im not sure if it's being ISTP, but I can figure out systems quite fast i.e. learning to drive, I worked out on the first circuit how to judge the distances between cars, how to flick the indicator with the least movement, the best position for my feet to be in etc which led to my instructor saying I should be ready to pass the test in a few months even though Ive never driven before. Maybe being connected to our bodies and aware of things while being able to focus on one area easier than an Se dom?
    Oooh. So maybe that's why you guys are the weapon specialist haha. You guys do well on how things work

    Of course, I am clearing exaggerating.
    Lol the epicness. But yeah, that explains why ISTPs only speak a few words I guess o. O
