Hi all, I am new to personality cafe. I am an ISTP female and found out about 6 months ago apparently I'm a rare type :laughing:. I am married with 2 kids. My husband and I stumbled across the MBTI tests while we were on a road trip and spent the time exploring our profiles. He is an ENFJ and we've been together for nearly 15 years now.

When I first read my profile I was floored. It was the most accurate description of myself I had ever come across. I'd spent so much of my life wondering what was wrong with me?! I used to feel like I sucked at being a person. I couldn't commit to anything, didn't care about anything, was flaky, I'd jump from interest to interest like they had gone out of style, I had no real future plans (in fact this was the most worrisome part of my marriage) and I sure kept him on his toes with all my borderline cheating or risky behavior.

Now I don't have the typical "good with my hands" stereotype, or the athleticism (I have some theories about this), I exhibit nearly everything else. My brain can pick apart just about anything. I've even been called the wizard at one of my jobs. I just have an innate ability to just figure things out and I cannot stop myself when I get on a topic. It's always hilarious to me that when hubby and I need to make a decision about something, I'm always the researcher and he just wants to make a decision and move on.

I currently work in graphic design. What I do is honestly a uniquely created position. My husband is the true artist and a graphic designer. When we were younger, I would help set up his files (like pre-coloring a digital sketch). I basically do that now but on a much larger scale. At the company I am working for, I spend a lot of time picking apart the Adobe Creative Suite and putting together efficient workflows for the rest of the team. I don't consider myself a creative person by any means, I can just employ logic and order for the chaotic creative types. In the past hubby and I had our own design firm where I was the programmer (self-taught).

I've also studied on and off for 6 years to be a student midwife. Yeah, I have a desire to deliver babies... I find the whole process of creating another human mind-boggling and inspiring. But that career path doesn't make enough money for my future-focused husband. So I have paused it until an unidentified time when money won't matter to him .

My husband recently lost his job so I am the main provider and it's so scary for him. I keep trying to reassure him logically that we're fine. We have enough money to get by for a few months and he doesn't buy it so everyday I'm feeling drained having to emotionally support him.

Anyway, I could write a novel about me and my ISTPness. I'm constantly bugging my husband when I've found some piece of info online or from someone's vlog that strikes a cord with me. I haven't begun typing other people yet as I'm really into learning about WHO I AM! Then I'll probably go more in depth with who he is and start trying to type my kids but they are both under 8 so it's kinda hard to tell with what little info I have now. That's me in a nutshell, I'm so excited to have found this forum!
