Hands on INTP's

Just curious to know how many INTP's love to get down and dirty in laborious back breaking work. Im not sure I have met another INTP in my profession. Manual excavations, swinging off crow bars and jackhammers are a daily occupational past time. If im not at work, Im sweating it out on my property splitting lumber or smashing steel on my anvil. If there is no work to be done people watching in a coffie shop is my downtime. I know in my local industry I qualify as a pretty random guy as far as shooting the chit goes. In my circle of fellow plumbers none of them share my introversion, they are all robust noisy alpha males. I like what i do, though it wanes in mental stimulation, so i search for the jobs which require the most trouble shooting. Im sure im not alone. Helloooooo

I probably wouldn't want to do it as a profession, but I do enjoy some of my own constructions at home. Building decks, patios, fences, laying pavers, etc.
Ditto. I built a small bridge with my father a few years ago. I also do a lot of fixing when people ask me to. I also spend a lot of time assembling and disassembling computers.. not that doing this qualifies as "dirty, laborious, and back breaking work".

The one activity I hate is cleaning up things I don't think need to be cleaned. Power washing the deck? Washing the driveway? I don't think so.
