basically, what would you say/what would make you smile on the inside to know that someone is waiting for you to come back ?

My friends/ex just tells me to take my time and they're always there, just waiting for me when I need them.

Being an INTJ myself I would say the best probable thing to do would be not to say anything at all. However if the urge strikes you too violently and you believe this must be done... throw something at him that will help him think. If you say you can relate so well, then tell him something solely to aid his recharge cycle. Perhaps some sort of basis to think around, so that he has mental footing?

Give him an important task. For instance "Help! I'm trying to determine the importance of Guanosine Triphosphate in the Krebs Cycle."

Works on me every time. I'm so gullable.
:cool:

I actually avoid reading texts in this lock down mode...but one friend always manages to get a message thru to me. She is completely zany and off the wall...and usually tells me something like "I must be high from the led paint, so when you are unlocking..." (the she asks a question, usually reminding me I'm the only one who can answer it)... This makes me laugh and I cannot resist to remind her you don't get high from lead paint. Then answer her question. I know it's more than one line...but she is only person that ever gets replies when I'm there. She has them too, but she announces before she goes into them.

Something shorter: I understand your need to go, send smoke signals if he needs something: white smoke for food, red smoke for a unit of blood, black smoke for an emergency roll of TP.

Laughs are good, and it's a sign that you will be there when he emerges from "his cave"

Could be well passed your timeline....

"we all need our breaks! ______"
I would say this starts off as too obvious. Either nothing (as mentioned), something sarcastic (if that is you) or just a link to an off-the-wall article/news story. After the link, "Thought this would make you smile and give you an ulcer at the same time."

No mention of "break" or "re-charging". He doesn't need to be told that he flipped the "no vacancy" sign.
