*Meanwhile in one of the social media with my friend, he is an ISFP guy.*

Me:"Why I feel awkward reading the INTJs lovey-dovey.."
ISFP:"Are INTJs understand love?"
Me:"Particulary no."
ISFP:"Mind me to teach ya?"
Me:"No."
ISFP:"Okay, tell me if you change your mind :3"
Me:"Such a waste."
ISFP:"Well, if you change your mind and ask to me, you've point at the right person!"
Me:"Never."
ISFP:"Cmon, consider it."
(le wild) INFP guy:"It's worth a try."
Me:"I SAID NO."
ISFP:"okay, dont be mad i was joking #run"

Actual conversation I had with a representative of our ISP last night:

Rep: Is this Mr. MacKellar?
Me: No, this is his wife.
Rep: Well, Mrs. MacKellar. I am calling about a special offer. Do you have a minute?
Me: …I suppose.
Rep: *Does their spiel* So, would you like to take advantage of this special offer?
Me: It sounds decent, but I will need to speak with my husband first.
Rep: I understand, but this is a limited time offer. We usually only offer it to brand new customers.
Me: Then we will make a quick decision, but I need to speak with my husband first.
Rep: Yes ma’am, but may I remind you it’s only $20 more, faster speed, all HD channels, and a limited time offer.
Me: Yes…I am aware of all that. You’ve said that several times. I will still need to speak with my husband.
Rep: You would get Bravo and HBO free for six months. ESPN and ESPN2 as well; and it is only ten dollars a month more after six months.
Me: *starting to lose my patience* We don’t watch cable, ma’am, and we hate sports. Now, I will speak with my husband about it.
Rep: Could you speak with him now while we are on the phone together?
Me: ….ma’am…I will. Speak with. My husband. Thank you. Have a good day.
Rep: Yes, well this is a limited time offer and you don't need your husband's permissio-
Me: *cutting her off, vocally irritated* Ma’am. I am going to speak to my husband. Now, if the next words out of your mouth are not to the effect of ‘Thank you, have a good day I am going to end this call.
Rep: …well, there is no need for that. But, if I can just-
Me: *Ends call*
My mother who had been listening to the conversation: What was that?
Me: The reason I don’t work at a call center.


Just thought you all would enjoy.

INFP: "What's the truth? What is truth? It's a pointless question to ask and yet it's the echo of all my thoughts." [My latest FB status]
INFP: what

Me: well
it means that basically, all my thoughts are based on a desire to find out truth
About life, about myself, about others, about the right perspective
it's the echo because
it's the essence of all the reflections
I could have used the word shadow, as well

INFP:why do you think it's pointless?

Me: because truth is an illusion, everything is relative, truth can never be fully comprehended, therefore we will always be wrong a little bit. It's a human concept. There is no point in this hamster-in-a-roulette thinking
running and running in my head trying to put the puzzle pieces differently to try and find the right image i'm supposed to end up seeing
but the puzzle pieces are completely subjective, so it's all about making our own truths

INFP: You really worry too much about such a trivial thing.

Me: but yet i act as if the pieces could be taken as is and form the "true, original" picture
well
truth is trivial
is what i said when i said it's pointless to ask myself that
but i know that and yet that's how i go in my relationship with the world
I should
live this life, rather than wonder about it
than wonder about how i should live it

INFP: I don't know what to tell you :x

Another "reading mind" conversation. This time with my INFP best friend.

INFP: I think I'm going to...
Me: ...the badroom but me first.:wink:

INFP: I'm going to charge my card for the subway
Me: I was about to do that, come on.
*talking to the guy from the subway*
INFP: I don't how much money I will put in it...maybe...
Me: 30$? Me too.
INFP: What the fuck:laughing: I was having the number in my head, stop doing that!

*Going to the subway*
INFP: Hurry up, it's already there, I think he was...
Me: Yes, waiting for us, come on!

I used to be a bit more polite with call center people. Now...I just don't have time to deal with their scripted bull. Especially since every time we have an issue or question and have to call our ISP, they take it upon themselves (probably per policy) to remind us we only have internet (Like we didn't know) and try and bundle it with something else at some sort of special price for 6-12 months.

Honestly, I already get the promos in the mail and in my junk inbox. Let me contact you and when I say 'bug off' bug. off.

her: okay. listening.
me: i'm just struggling. xmas sucks rocks, all my friends all go off and hang out with their families . . .

This is SO funny! Had me chuckling all morning! So what exactly did you want the poor lady to do? You'd have confused me! Maybe finish with 'so I'd like to play with your squeaky toy next month when I'm feeling outgoing again...'

But you did great on admitting how you felt up to that end point. Good for you for reaching out and telling someone how you felt. I know. It's totally not easy for me either.

At work this morning ^.^
Boss: "Results, come here and look at this plate (Burger with balsamic decorating the plate), you can tell what kind of person you are by this. Normally it's a messy pattern to look good, you've done 3 near perfect circles."
me: "Well, they are circles..."

No point doing eggs or ovals imo

LOL so you provide her with a (feeling related) problem and then tell her it cannot be fixed? Sounds like something that will drive her (and subsequently you) crazy. I think maybe you should reflect on what it is that could help you and then say that specifically to your friends.

i think maybe it would be good if you butted out. since you feel free to offer your unsolicited opinion, i feel free to return the favour.

however, if that response bugs you, have this more polite reply. i'll even throw in a withholding of the prescriptive word 'should' for free.

i had thought about it and had it ready to tell her once she gave me some room to speak in. that section of the conversation isn't reported here.

if unsolicited opinions bother you so much why post on a forum? this is the internet.

Not everyone wants to have someone "bullying," them by picking out key words in threads like addiction and making comments about that. Also addictions are just the brains way of telling you to keep doing whatever's rewarding, literally anything can be addictive.

This thread's about conversations that have happened in our day and we're all meant to be friends here. I understand what Lily was saying in the post you initially quoted, sometimes I want to talk to people but there's no one around and when they try to make you talk at an inconvenient time it's irritating, does that clear things up a little for you? For added emphasis, I could start this post with LOL and seem like I'm laughing at, then attacking you.

Maybe I should start by saying that I'm not offended.;) I laugh because this is so true of me. Also, I am sometimes jealous of your ability to be rational. Speaking for myself, there have been plenty of times when I was so distraught (usually over a relationship) that the only way I could cope was to do something that I knew was stupid (like call him.) I can absolutely see the frustration from your point of view, cuz I look at myself and see the same thing. It's VERY frustrating to know that there's no reason for me to be upset about something, yet feel inexplicably sad. I try to tell myself that everything is just a response to my neurons dancing around, but I can't seem to change irrational feelings. Sucks!

she's really so lovable. her iq is something like 170.

i was feeling all intj'ish and strategic ;-) all i wanted to do for my weekend project was notify the people i know i need more of their time and attention than i've been getting from all of them. and then leave them to it. doesn't need to be fixed immediately, but i guess she's a very right-here-right-now kind of thinker. you know how seamless we can look on the surface, without even meaning to or intending to cover anything up.

im not bullying anyone, the initial comment was meant to help. I read over what i read and still stand by what i said and my original intentions, she took it badly for whatever reason and then was rude to me. My thought was that she wasnt communicating well between types and i see that is also whats going on here.

Cause you can never be wrong right? I mean, it says so right there in your signature. We shouldn't need to dumb things down for people, especially if they consider themselves close enough friends to "know," us.
