INTP's in the Bathroom

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.
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.
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.
