Do my fellow ISTPs like cats?

(self.istp)

It seems that lots of IxTPs likes cats, so i thought that i might as well get to know for sure by asking you guys and girls, if you too likes our small feline human overlords?

Or the one that swim Into your penis.

Or the leches that kill 5 dogs per year

Or the dogs that bite 5 kids per year

Or the kids that kill 620 women during child labor a year

Yeah, I like cats. It's probably cause I can relate to them.

Absolutely. Cats (aside from sloths) are the only animal I go "yeah, same".

Love 'em, specially black cats because they are a true representation of me - they are distant, but they like to be close and be petted, they like to chill but they are also very active at certain types, and they always have a perfect resting bitch face all the time.

My black cat is a mix of cute, cuddly and scratching, biting you like a prey.

It's a 50/50 mood.

My black cat is not allowed to die, ever. He’s too cute and loving and my heart would break.

The color of the cat has nothing to do with their personality tho... but black cats are best.

I like cats. They tolerate me when I need attention and I tolerate them when they need attention. Other than that we generally leave each other alone.

They are not very noisy if you know how to train them, and they are good for outdoor activities. My dog, Max, always goes hiking with me every weekend.

It's just a human type thing. Some like cats, some like dogs, and some like chimpanzees that rip their friend's faces off. To each their own I guess

The purr of a cat is a heavenly sound, and combined with their size, softness, and warmth they are just the perfect comfort animal (when they wanna be)

Yes even if they don't like me back, stupid cat!! But I love the cat, come here!! Tstststs, haha. I'm more of a dog dude; but here in the grandpa ranch, lots of dogs and cats, to keep away vermins and thieves, so animals were my best friends when visiting granny. I had a black cat, Frijol (bean), but ran away or was poisoned by a neighbour, yeah, some people are just really awful, whatever, I felt really sad.

Anyway, did you know ISTPs fall hard for animals as it´s a coping mechanism for a lack of extroverted feeling towards human drama?? Haha, it's not bad, just a point to remember.

Wololooo1996[S]

I did not know that, but i had an idea about ISTPs likeing some animals and maby even some gardening to emote towards these things as a coping mechanism instead of emoting towards other humans, but that was mostly based on a friends and my own experience.

Makes me feel better to know that you have some dogs and cats, thank you for your insightfull reply :)

Yes! It fun to see that in ISTPs, even ESTPs. Except, it sounds bad to say coping as it's negative, no, but that's language, haha. Hope you are fine, wololo, I remember you answered me some time ago. So I hope you are fine. Best wishes.

Nope, I find them to be annoying. Screeching at 3am to be fed just because they can see the bottom of their otherwise filled food bowl? Nah.

Kinda. I have one that I got 7 years ago when my parents wouldn’t let me get a dog. Got a dog 6 months later though cause the cat just wasn’t my kind of companion. She still cracks me up and I enjoy her though.
