The title is self-explanatory. It's like the other types just love to test your mood.
Not to steer this into the thinker vs. feeler debate, but it is funny how often thinkers have an attitude that emotions need fixing or correcting if it doesn't serve a purpose (at least to them), while feelers tend to want to validate emotions, no matter if it reflects reality or serves them well. There is wisdom to be found in both approaches, but it is a frustrating difference.I seem to clash with infjs the most. I suppose it might be summed up where they don't want to be read but they get offended if you don't know what they're thinking. . . and they're generally a bit high maintenance.
but the worst experiences have been with isfp and their tendency towards aggressive passive aggressiveness. it's more situational than traits. . . like they can't turn a door handle without everyone in the bloody room knowing their pissed off. the hostility just exudes from them.. so you hear it, witness it in everything they do. and there's no bloody talking them down from it... they just want to be f'ing angry because they're angry.
Someone's gotta do the dishes?There are types that I struggle to connect with or even get along with (SJs in particular more than just casually anyways), but I can see their value in the world as a whole.
I don't think a world full of INTJs would be all that great after a while either, and the world would struggle to get menial tasks accomplished if it was nothing but NTs lol - so while I may personally not have an affinity for certain types, I can appreciate what they give to our race as a whole.
Not what I was going with - menial was probably the wrong word to use. I meant repetitive, (to me) mind numbing, tasks. I have a friend/acquintance - ISTJ - who does software upgrades and such to MRI equipment. He's not an engineer, he doesn't fix or write the coding or software, he plugs in his machines, figures out what programs/updates need to be done, and reloads whatever needs to be done. He's not really "problem solving" and spends more of his time driving from site to site and waiting for software to upload than anything. Decent job, unique market, and he makes decent money.Someone's gotta do the dishes?
I haven't noticed this as a sorter on type, because ime everyone[less about 5% of the whole] wants to get in your business somehow if a 'problem' is revealed. I divide them into 'people who'll try to prescribe what you 'should' think or feel' and 'people who'll try to prescribe what you 'should' do. ' but I've never carried that over to trying to mb-type them. I just try to avoid either way.thinkers have an attitude that emotions need fixing or correcting if it doesn't serve a purpose (at least to them), while feelers tend to want to validate emotions, no matter if it reflects reality or serves them well.
