The SP temperament is more than just beer, sex, and soccer. More than just being reckless and silly and impulsive. Sure, it can be all those things, and about all those things. And yes, we do drive around the Industrial Park on Sunday morning refining our rev matched downshifts. (Well, at least the ISxPs do.)

But so often we're dismissed as being obsessed with Reality TV and gossip. Most SPs I know don't give a damn about those things. Why watch someone else's life when you can have your own? I'm not surprised you're not interested in people like that. I'm not interested in them either.:dry:

SP is also the temperament of Churchill and JFK, Mozart and Monet, Hemingway and Wordsworth, Springsteen and Spielberg. And the list of SP interests, skills and hobbies is interesting and impressive: politics, current affairs, forestry, wildlife management, computer science and engineering, geology, conservation, botany, landscape design, interior design, graphic design, photography, drama/acting, culinary arts, nutrition, physiotherapy, painting, musical performance, composition, illustration, animation, film-making, fashion design, family medical practice, veterinarian science, law enforcement, avionics, entrepreneurship. And of course, it's not unheard of us to make our way even through atypical careers like law or management. But it's the real world, through and through. We are pretty smart in practical ways and we get better as we go along. Being an SP is good training for life. Please don't underestimate us.

Well, maybe this was a bit serious. We don't like to be too serious for too long. :blushed: Life should be a little fun, so let's have a beer and watch the game too. But I'm not going to limit myself or play down to any kind of stereotype. You should take us the same way you'd treat someone who is NT or NF or SJ. All types are good and it ain't a race. It's late already ... Thanks for listening, everyone. :happy:

Thanks! I've heard Churchill referred to as a good tactical leader, and seen him quoted as ISTP. However, I will honestly admit that I'm not as familiar with European political leaders as American and Canadian ones. I'll do some more research.

hmmm...soccer... :laughing:
Aw, but you forgot the beer. To complete the image, she should have been holding a beer. :wink:

you're right, its not just about beer, sex, and soccer. its all about beer, sex, and hockey.

ugh, i cant stand reality tv. as you said, who cares about them when ya got ur own.

Yeah, I used to play a lot more when I lived in an area with more bars. I'd meet friends there and we'd play. I don't live close to a place with tables anymore and it's not worth it to buy one for the house.

Pool and beer?! Setup a dart board and we got ourselves our own little bar... Can we get some TVs setup to watch sports too. No soccer or hockey for me, I'll take baseball. :wink:

The only thing amusing to me about reality TV is just how far people will go for their 15 minutes of fame... <rolls eyes>

hockey hiking cycling :) conservation biology. I also play guitar, like photography, technical theatre, and hey, I really enjoy writing. Just because I'm Se-dom/aux (that part's complicated aha) doesn't mean I can't use those other functions!

I'm not that into sports. Okay I liked football(soccer if you're American) when I was a kid but I kinda grew out of it. I don't mind watching a bit of Tennis or Snooker.

However my main hobbies are writing poems, playing role-play games like Shadowrun Shadowrun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and talking to people on the internet. I also enjoy watching TV: Orphan Black and Elementary are my favourite TV programmes right now.

Hmm I do like the typical ISTP thrill-seeking things a lot: rafting, roller coasters, bungee jumping, sex, driving fast, blah blah blah.
I find myself doing mellower things more often though. I love everything outdoors-hiking,camping. Also reading, researching, TV, video games, board games, and others. Animals are my passion, I'm studying to be a vet and want to specialize on wildlife. Conservation, environmentalism, equality. All important.
