    Expat, there is no need for an apology. Venting, ranting and asking/giving advice is what I created this thread for. I wanted a place where people could feel safe to express themselves how ever much they wanted, when ever they wanted.

    It makes me happy to know that others on here feel that they can let loose a little and get whatever it is they are holding inside of them out of the system. So please, go ahead.

    And yes, I think it was good timing. For many people.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    I was talking with my ESFP spouse yesterday evening, and in the middle of an otherwise routine conversation which consisted of her careening from topic to topic like a drunk driver bouncing off of parked cars with me nodding furiously trying to figure out what was incidental crap to filter out and what the relevant points were, she pulled out her trusty, "You never come out to the bar with me anymore. You know you have friends down there. Why don't you like my friends? You could have come down for an hour at least!"

    Cut to my internal gearbox exploding in a shower of metal shrapnel. My outer expression, of course, remained placid. Terminator-like, a list of possible responses flashed across my monitor-screen:

    a) "I went with you last Saturday night, we stayed for 4 hours and we had a good time."
    b) "You contradicted yourself in referring to them first as my friends, then as your friends, which is it?"
    c) "I'd just gotten off of work, and I was tired, cranky, and liable to piss somebody off."
    d) "F*ck you, asshole".


    Probabilities were calculated, and selection c) flashed on the monitor screen.

    "I'd just gotten off of work, and I was tired, cranky, and liable to piss somebody off", I replied.

    Dissatisfied, she pulled out her supporting argument, "When we met, you used to come out with me all the time, we met at the bar!"

    My outward expression betrayed a wince of irritation. More calculations, more probabilities, and appearing on the screen:

    a) "That was 7 years ago, I was three-quarters crazy from the divorce I was going through, and I was on an angst-fueled drinking binge with my inferior Se function at the wheel."
    b) "Yea, I should spend more time out with you, I know how it must make you feel when you're out and I'm never with you, I'll bet your friends look at you like there must be something wrong with you".
    c) CHANGE SUBJECT - DISTRACT HER.
    d) "F*ck you, asshole".


    So b) flashed on the screen, and I engaged her emotionally, "Yea, I should spend more time out with you, I know how it must make you feel when you're out and I'm never with you, I'll bet your friends look at you like there must be something wrong with you". She was delighted and peace was restored (and no, it won't kill me).

    Meanwhile, somewhere in my INTJ soul of souls, a monitor flashed slowly:

    "You should have picked d)".

    Excellent representation of this process. Happens so, so often. (My five year-old son just walked in. "What are you laughing about? You're laughing way too much.")

    I swear mine is practically my PA; seems to run most of my life if I'm not paying attention.

    This inquiry into what I should be doing. Asking me to spend time with them. I don't even get it, do they honestly think I want to spend more time with them when they confront me about it? Where is the logic? If you want a dog to come to you when you call its name, you don't yell and scream at it when it doesn't - you give it treats.

    For fucks sake. You can't force people to be more interested in you!

    My ESFP friend is training her Te and Ti, it's driving me nuts since I always have to correct her logic. She's better off being an F I guess.

    How'd you get her to sit still long enough?

    Clarity hurts.

    why oh why the fuck do not people in my household replace the toilet paper when it runs out?! Now, I have to make the ignominious waddle down the hallway with my pants around my ankles in search of a new roll...fuck!
