Observant little ...

I don't understand the answer, but I may have some ideas on the question...

more on Myers-Briggs

Okay, I've found a longer Jung Typology Test
(which apparently the MB test was based on) that you can still do for free here.

This starts to make some more sense. I still tested as ISTP, but my strength of preferences were:-

Introverted 44
Sensing 22
Thinking 22
Perceiving 11

Which makes me a:

- moderately expressed introvert
- slightly expressed sensing personality
- slightly expressed thinking personality
- slightly expressed perceiving personality

The Kiersey description for ISTP is:

The Crafter Artisans are not only concrete in speech and utilitarian in getting things done, they are also directive and attentive in their social roles. Though directive like their Promoter counterparts, their directiveness is leavened by a good deal of attentiveness and seclusiveness. They do not approach strangers readily, but once in contact do not hesitate to tell them what to do. And they can be quite forceful in this, such that others tend to do their bidding.

Like the other Artisans, Crafters live a life is artful action, but their particular nature is most easily seen in their mastery of tools of any and all kinds, from microscopic drill to supersonic jet, from potter's wheel to grand piano. A tool is any implement that extends or varies our human powers -- vehicles, musical instruments, cutting devices, and weapons are just four of the many categories of the tools that surround us. Most of us use tools in some capacity, of course, but Crafters (only ten per cent of the general population) are the true virtuosos of tool work, with a natural ability to command tools, to bend them to their wishes, and to become adept at all the crafts requiring tool skills. Even from an early age Crafters are drawn to tools as to a magnet; tools fall into their hands demanding use, and they must manipulate them. Indeed, if a given tool, whether scalpel or earthmover, is operated with a precision that defies belief, that operator is likely an Crafter.

This one makes a lot of sense. Especially the second last sentance of the first paragraph! ;o)
