    Ask An ISTP a Relationship Question Thread / Q's on how to know if an ISTP likes you?


    PLEASE DIRECT ALL YOUR MUSHY SHIT HERE IN THIS THREAD!

    (A Consolidated place for all types to comfortably ask about ISTPs & Relationships)

    Here is a thread for general relationship questions for/about ISTPs! All types may post here and vent or look for insight into their specific situation. Hopefully, this thread will soon be a repository of knowledge and opinion, for all who stumble across it to examine and learn from. All types please direct all your relationship questions to ISTPs here. ISTPs please feel free to discuss relationships, advise, comment, or answer all inquiries here. Or even vent about or post about relationships for others insight.

    Curious on how an ISTP views your type or which types they find most attractive?

    What do ISTPs value

    Stumped on what to do with your ISTP? Maybe there will be an answer here please feel free to relay your situation for insight.

    Wonder how an ISTP acts if they like you? Feel free to bring up your personal scenario or ask ISTPs how they are in 'wove'

    Does your ISTP confuse you, ask about it here.

    ISTPs do you want to vent about the things that really urk you in your personal relationship, or in a relationship, post here. Hey other what really pisses you off about us, tell us.

    ISTPs want to comment on what really drives them wild? What melts their heart?

    (Hopefully a concise thread about all things ISTP/Relationships can curve the numerous threads being individually posted by those who want to ask about their ISTP)

    INTJ - The Scientists

    Hehe...the fact that this Relationship thread is new (I assume there wasn't a previous one) says a lot in itself!

    I do have a question as a matter of fact. I believe I am an INTJ and that my partner is an ISTP.

    I've got issues with work (as in work comes before everything and I frankly work ridiculous hours) and food which I am trying to overcome. As work and food are basically emotional crutches for me (an unfortunate pattern started as a child), overcoming them is leading to lots of pretty uncomfortable emotional swings. As much as possible I try not to show these as I don't want to make my problems his. I know he sees it anyway - he sees all!!!

    Any of you male ISTPs who have been in this situation; what is your take on this from your side of the fence? Do you just batten down and hope it passes as soon as possible? Do you desperately want to help but feel unable? Does it make you feel 'less' if you are unable to help? OR Since you guys (from what I can see) deal with your own issues internally also, just trust that your partner will crush it eventually and pipe up with encouragement every now and then if it looks like things are getting dire? OR none of the above

    ISTP - The Mechanics

    Little disclaimer before I begin; I am not anyone or everyone.

    When it comes to help of any kind at all, I generally follow the ask and you shall receive rule. I trust people to figure out their problems for themselves. If they do ask for help, I will not hesitate to sit down with the person and talk it over with them in depth.

    And yes, I also recognize when people need help and are not asking for it. It all depends on the situation whether or not I step in.

    I hope you do not mind me responding to this as a female ISTP.

    First, I have a friend who is an INTJ, he is also a workaholic and has difficulties with food.
    Is this common for some INTJs? If you know.

    Second, I have not said anything to him about it.
    I do hope he is working it out and do not stress over it.
    He is his own person so, I am going to let him do what he needs to do on his own.
    I trust him but sure if it is becoming dire I will try to give him my support by being positive.

    Unless he asks for help that is then yes I would definitely help.

    I deal with my issues mostly internally as well.

    Of course it depends on the situation and I only speak for myself.

    Of course not.

    My INTJ brother is also overweight and gets caught up in work (or whatever has his attention) to the exclusion of everything else. I suspect this result is the likely effect on INTJs that our background would produce but I don't think it is particularly common (the weight thing anyway). Someone asked the overweight question on the INTJ board a while back and a few people got their knickers in a knot over it (as opposed to just not answering) plus photos on the INTJ board show mostly healthy looking folk.

    Ok. What Benstein said pretty much nailed what I suspect is going in but, you know, every now and then there is a little doubt since the explicit communication isn't there, plus the emotional swings feed into that doubt. Feeling much better about it all today.

    Glad you did not mind :)


    He actually has the opposite problem, he doesn't eat enough =/ but I can see both potentially being a problem for an INTJ.
    & I would never think all of you are overweight (or underweight), I was just curious if food could be an issue that was related to your type.

    I figured I'd just answer since I was asking a question any way.

    Happy he helped and that you are doing better with it.
    That's the most important thing.
