<back from a fishing trip, unloading the catch out of the cooler>

ENTJ (finished gutting two fish and reaches for a third): Aaah! This one's still alive!
INTP: Gut it, it'll die.
ENTJ: I've got a ... erm, a moral thing against vivisection. I can't. :blushed:
INTP: It ought to die if you leave it sitting for a bit.
ENTJ: Hopefully.


Half an hour later...
ENTJ: Fuck! It's STILL alive! ... I'm kind of spooked, to be honest. :unsure:
INTP: :rolleyes:
ENTJ: That thing's already been out of the water a good four hours. WTF is it doing still alive?
INTP: They're simple creatures, they can twitch a long time.
ENTJ: I know, but the others aren't alive! ... you know, one of them I caught was SUPER lively, I bet it's this one. :dry:
INTP: Probably. Maybe take it's head off?
ENTJ: The knife's in the sink, you take its head off.
INTP: Not saw it off, chop it off. Like with a cleaver and a cutting board.
ENTJ: With what, a hatchet? We don't have a cleaver.
INTP: That would mess up the cutting board. :tongue:
ENTJ: Damn it! :frustrating:
INTP: :laughing:

ENTJ: I'm going to put it in the freezer for a bit, maybe it'll finally die.
INTP: Maybe. I'm taking a nap.
ENTJ: <sigh>

An ENTJ and an ISFP go for a walk...

ISFP: "I just... need someone to talk to"

ENTJ: "I'm here. Looks like your friends aren't; what's up "

*internally braces self..what do I say? Advice? She won't take it. Truth? She doesn't want it. How the hell am I gonna handle this*

ISFP: "I just, nothing is going right in my life! My company is failing; my bills are behind, and everyone has put me on this pedestal for being...."

Suddenly in the street beside us a car goes screeching by, slams to a hault and is blocked in by 4 cop cars. Cops barrel out, draw guns, the person in the car raises hands, police drag him out of the car and slam to the ground.

ISFP: "oh my god! What in the..."

ENTJ: "Looks like YOUR day just got better! But hey, I gotta get the hell out of here. I'm black. Guns drawn. These things don't end well for us and I'm too close for comfort. Hope you feel better, hun!"

Looks like it worked out well enough for both of us. You got out of there unscathed, and the fish finally died!

Filleted, breaded, and oven is preheating now. :D

ENFJ sobbing and crying.

ESFJ friend, "It's okay, he was an asshole anyway."

ENTJ self, "You're going to be crying a lot. Remember to drink water." *hands her a box of Puffs tissues*

Now on an equal yet opposite note, I love it when Fe Doms demonstrate their Ti tendencies.

ENFJ Aunt calls my now- confirmed ESTJ dad.

ESTJ dad: "yea, Di, what's happenin"
Enfj Aunt: "guess what happened to me the other day..."

Proceeds to tell anecdote.

ESTJ Dad. "Well that's just like that time I---"
Enfj Aunt: "Michael, did I call to listen to you ramble? No. I called, to tell about my incident, and framed the conversation about me. So listen, comment, and then the conversation is done."
Dad: "I ...well uh, yea go on"

I knew someone like that once, who said very nearly the same thing in the same circumstance. But my reply was a bit different than your father... it went something like this:

"I have a history, perspective, and life as well, and wasn't born to be a faceless, user-friendly audience for yours. If you can't deal with that, then strut and fret your hour on someone else's stage, thanks."

I don't hear from that one much anymore, heh.

More so than type, I believe sibling chain of command dictated my dad's response. He is the 'baby'. My aunt is much older.

However, when my aunt and I converse, I tend to structure the conversation, and her feedback scales me to perspective. Ex:

Me: "auntie, I need to fly to Dallas next weekend; I don't fly often; will you book my flight using your rewards to give me a discount and I pay you?"

Aunt: "Leslie! Hey schnooks! I notice you only call me when you need something and never to see how I'm doing or my day is going. Remember Madrid first class?"

Me: "you're absolutely right; I'll try to work on that. So Dallas- yes or no?"

Aunt: sighs "...sure."

She never would've pulled the stunt with my dad on Me. But her and I have a lot of commonalities- both the oldest; both very intellectual and socially manipulative; similar interests and sense of humor. Thus, different dynamic.
