Because I am aware of this propensity, I try to maintain distance for this reason, as well.

    Sometimes I do this 'hibernation' just when I'm drained and not stressed, it's just a matter of recharging overall, just part of my natural rhythm.

    I've made it a habit of informing close friends that if I'm distant at certain times, I'm not mad at them, everything's fine, I'm just low-energy/need some time to myself. Most of the time, that clarification clears up any confusion/prevents a lot of uninvited prodding into my life.
    I wonder if it's an Ni thing?

    and leave it at that. I know ENTPs are always dying to collect more data, but sometimes people need space, and maybe afterwards, they'll talk to you. And maybe sometimes they won't. But it's what they need to deal with their problems, that counts, right?
    Yes, perhaps my Ne curiosity gets the best of me.

    Ah, I see.

    That is different issue, though.

    So what would you recommend doing in that case?

    I'm not sure. I've never had a problem taking care of business so I can understand the frustration in dealing with someone who won't. I would sit down with that person, draw up a schedule/calendar of bills, due dates, and expected amounts. That way, it's no longer your responsibility--it's his. He can either do things in a timely manner (barring exceptional circumstances) or find another place to live. This may sound a little harsh but why should you have to stress yourself?

    The reason is that I can't survive without him and he can't survive without me right now. We are dependent upon each other's income. It really sucks.

    Sometimes I like to be when I post.

    Back on topic:
    I'm introverted and some sort of self preservation variant, so that's my excuse for that behavior. Although it was more prevalent when I was younger.

    Pretty much, although I think it is perhaps more congruent with introverted thinking in general. 5 and sp as primary instinct can make us really withdrawn though, especially if 5w4.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    You don't "deal" with them. You leave them alone.

    I'm also an SP dom and this shutdown is VERY strong.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Can do. I can also go to the other extreme looking for distraction. I'm not sp primary though.

    I would say: "a time of abstraction to develop a new universe". Depends with the level of stress, and the family core.
