I wash my hands practically up to the elbow and usually splash water all over the sink and floor. I never dry them, either with paper towel or with the dryer (except on very, very special occasions). I also always manage to get water all over the floor when I take a shower, and it doesn't seem like any other types do this. Am I alone?

No! I never dry my hands either, and frequently make messes because of my intensive spashing. :D

I don't know how this would necessarily correlate with type though.

Oh, it MUST. I've never been with an "S" type who made any kind of mess in the bathroom, splash-related or otherwise. My ENTP father said he "never heard of such a thing" when I responded to his inquiry about not drying my hands.

We are rather messy, aren't we? If anything, that would be (if I were to guess) the iNtuitive Perceiver thing. Though there are some very messy Js, and cleanliness does not always correlate with structure per se, I wouldn't expect an NTJ to act like this. Maybe we just don't care as much about mess - I know I really don't. Hygiene yes (hence the cleaning), but not orderliness.

Why might this be more common in Ns than in Sensors, though?

An "S" washing hands is probably thinking about washing his hands, maybe along with whose turn it is to clean the bathroom, according to the schedule posted conspicuously on the mirror (or maybe beside the mirror because it's neater that way). An "N" is probably thinking about non-bathroom related things. I lived with an ISFJ once and it was pure hell. There were "inferiority notes " posted everywhere about not leaving crumbs on the counter, water on the floor, etc.

Yeah. I could never cohabit with an SJ. They'd kill me.

I splash water everywhere too but i do dry my hands and clean up after myself because I live with a S. She's a hard core S, she might bite my head if I didn't.

Yep... I don't dry my hands well at all and I love to splash things. I usually somehow "play" with the water in the sink and perform simple experiments. I also find I'm obssessed with cleaning mirrorrs and the pipe. I want it to shine. >_< Anyway, my mom also always tells me to watch out and not splash the floor very time I go for a shower. I just have absolutely no idea how to shower without splashing the floor. I'm also like alergic to cold when I'm wet. Every time after I shower I nearly frezee if I don't dry up quickly, even with the radiator on. So yeah - I'm clumsy and splashy. >_<

oh my god, this is hilarious. i laughed myself to tears reading these because my mother has always said i bathe "like a duck". i can't seem to shower, brush my teeth, or wash my hands without trailing puddles of water. nor can i understand how the SJs in my family do not. i can certainly see it as being an NP thing.

this is an interesting observation. though i'm slightly OCD about hygiene and washing my hands, i am thinking about everything but the act itself. and if there's a window near the sink, i'll be looking up at the sky lost in thought while i scrub my hands. despite a mild germ fetish i don't, however, have the drying-of-hands issue. i use only paper towels at home, and in a public restroom i just use the dryer or paper towel dispenser with my fist or the back of my hand and then open the door with a paper towel or sleeve.

It often intrigues me how the water stains on the bathroom mirror come to be.
The mirror runs to the ceiling and the full width of the room, i think Im careful, but seeing that I live alone there is only one way they can appear. The splash marks go all the way up and across.
Placing my hands in my armpits appears to be my favoured form of drying, after a good few flicks to shed the bulk of the water.

Oh, god yes! That's exatally how I am. As long as it's clean, why should it have to be neat? As for thedrying thing, I always dry my hands on my pants. I do make a terrible mess though. My parents just about kill me because I always make water marks on the mirror, haha.

:tongue:

While I'm not generally focused on washing my hands when I wash them (asking for my thoughts to stay well-grounded is an absurd thing to do, after all), I do highly dislike splashing and getting water all over the sink. It creates a soupy mess, especially if you're like me and have a sink top covered in clutter.

In any case, I think it'll be hard to find a universal hand-washing style for any type.

Your armpits? Really? Thanks for the advice...You know, in case I'm ever at a State Dinner or something and absolutely have to dry my hands before shaking hands with the Prime Minister.
