Hey, you amazing and awesome INTPs!
I am putting my heart a little out of my sleeve on this one....
My hubby, an INTP, has recently been very annoyed with me and the children. He doesn't like it when I remind him (sometimes over and over again) to do his chores, which are linked to mine. IE- if he doesn't do his part, I am stuck not being able to do mine.
Lately I have been more stressed than usual due to work and am a bit more agitated. I have been a bit more irritated and am yelling more at the kids (a thing I seldom do). He has taken this so seriously that all day yesterday, he has been giving me little hints of "you're mean" with every comment he would make. I tried to analyze what was making him so mad, and this got him even madder. He could not answer past "you're being illogical!" I would ask him, "how?" but that made him ever more pissed. I actually started laughing at his fury, as it is so uncharacteristic of him, and he is unable to explain his reasoning of why he thinks I am being illogical!
You have to understand, these are strange dynamics for us. We usually laugh it out after having a heated argument, and make fun of ourselves. this was different.
My question to you is this- When you have fights with any INFJ in your life, what makes you finally snap? What are things that are helpful for your relationship to be balanced out after an epic fight, argument, disagreement?
Thanks in advance.
