^ This.If you bust in and interrupt me when I am intently working, then you have irritated me. Do it three times and I'm angry. Instead of busting in, come into my range of vision so that I know that you need me for something. Don't speak, let me finish. I will acknowledge you when I get to a stopping point--usually within 30 seconds. Do it this way (instead of busting in) and I won't be irritated--even if you have to interrupt me four or five times.
I can agree to most of those items by experience.I wish you knew that:
I don't enjoy picking up your slack: I do it because it needs to be done.
I feel resentment, humiliation and rejection acutely, no matter how I act.
I need to spend time alone in order to recharge.
Yes, this is my normal expression; no, nothing is wrong.
I don't mind making a fool of myself, but I'll do it on my terms.
The "funny" things that I did in times gone by, that you bring up now and again to get a laugh at my expense, are the same things I beat myself up over every day.
Ok...this made me laugh. I was having an online conversation with an ISTJ friend the other day and had expressed some of the things I'm dealing with in life lately... She did her best to comfort me in her ISTJ way and then gave me a *pats head* and told me it will all be ok....LOL! I thanked her for the head pat and gave her a *head pat* in return since I'm not a particularly *huggy* INFP. :happy: I think you guys are great just the way you are...really I do.I can agree to most of those items by experience.
We should have something stronger than a thank button, maybe a hug button because you need it *Hug*
Oh yes. According to past threads, I just crossed a line in ISTJ Land :wink:
This !!!!No, I do not want to take part in your aimless wandering around with no plan in mind. I find it boring and a waste of time. What's down that street? I have no idea. Do I want to go walking down it for 20 minutes? No, I do not.
I do have feelings but you have to be able to put them aside for certain things or it will blind you.Emotions are great, but they are not to be trusted. I make my decisions from a logical perspective and make every attempt to keep emotions out of the decision making process.
