I also over-indulge in food like a peasant who is afraid to ever have the chance to eat again. I barely maintain my two abdominus rectus muscles when I encounter all-you-can-eat wings (I hit 40 last week) or Klondyke bars. Sometimes its difficult to stop. I've never met an overweight INTJ.
I have related themes in sexual intercourse, sleep, television, exercise and several other fields where direct sensory input determines the next action - all of which have the same flavour of overindulged simplicity and obsession. I'm keeping an INFP and ISTP as friends to counter-balance that. Also I've never done any drugs for the same wary reasoning. On a related note, I'm also a lightweight with alcohol (1-2 beers and I'm dizzy), sleeping pills and secondhand pot.
He ate more than I did in one sitting, and he was always the reason I had to get groceries every week. He wasn't obese, but at 6'2" and slightly above 200 pounds, his eating habits were problematic. I love food and all, but come on... You INTJs can get pretty ridiculous when it comes to limits lol. But it's not impossible for you to develop Se, much like developing Fe isn't impossible for IXTPs. Takes time and practice.
I'm living with an INTJ. He seems to have a lot of ISTP traits, is it easy to mistype these two?
Anyway. I'm evil PMS witch at the moment and really annoyed with him. We both have a week off work. He is the kind of person who has to be constantly busy doing things all the time. He also hardly ever eats - as in he just forgets breakfast and lunch. He could literally eat the same dinner every night unless I cooked something new. Is it an ISTP thing to not be into eating and be hyperactive? Is it an INTJ thing?
I like to do things too, but there's a lot to be said for just chilling the fuck out sometimes. I'm not sure of my type btw, but definitely strongly Ti.
Anyway, I'd better find mindlessly busy work to engage in lest I am judged for my laziness. First, I need a workout to blow the irritable feelings away.
Why are you ISTPs so damn irresistible?
I was married to one for 9 years, then dated one for 6, and now find myself digging yet another.
Do INFJs tend to be drawn to you guys, or what?
What the hell, guys?
my top record is having salmon for at least 2 years. it doesn't have a taste to me now.
tbh being productive's actually enjoyable to me, i'm doing something that's going to get me to achieve a goal i am seeking out for. it's akin to doing a hobby, like drawing and playing the piano, but only with work.
that's just me though, idk about your INTJ.
also i'm curious, how does your PMS work, because i have next to none whatsoever.i'll feel normal pretty much everyday. the only thing that would change my mood would be the menstrual cramps, and that would only be because i'm in immense pain (although i haven't had immense pain in so long)
PMS sounds terrifying.
