Six months ago my parents had to move in with my husband and I. I always thought living with my Dad would be the most unbearable ordeal I would ever have to deal with. But I was wrong. My mom is an ISFJ and I'm the ISTP. Its like Oil and Water in my opinion. But I've got to make this work, so any suggestions from others that have dealt successfully with this combination would be greatly appreciated.

Some of the issues;

She's super sensitive. I'm blunt and that translates to hurtful. The littlest things set her off and I don't even know what I've said.

I have to take her shopping, she loves to shop and takes forever. She has to look at everything in the store. I like to spend about 5 minutes in the store, go for a specific purpose and get out as soon as possible once I found my items.

The list goes on and on. I'm committed to making this work for the both of us.
