I am aware of myself and try very hard not to be such a perfectionist as I don't want my children to resent me the way I resent my mother.
    My Husband is an INTJ and we are very close. He has always understood me and I now have a much better understanding of him thanks to MBTI.
    That's too bad. :sad: It sounds like you do love her, you just can't understand her.
    I am male, my profile picture is a photo of me …

    My parents are still married. I don’t know if it is a wise idea. :P It is my theory it is my dad who has messed up my mom, and made her far less emotionally stable. He has travelled a lot, and have often overlooked, been insensitive and not understanding towards my mom, often when she has been depressed, which always made her more depressed. She also worries a lot about the fact she doesn’t have a permanent job. My dad is an ENTJ. Anyhow, things seem to be better now, my dad travels less.

    I can somewhat understand how she feels. My Husband travels a lot and for the most part I am ok with it, but with three children it can be frustrating. I guess it's all about balancing everything and to know that some days are better than others. I also feel that when I have anxiety (aka acting kooky ) my INTJ Husband can bring me back down to earth with his logic.

    How does your Mother feel about your father being an extrovert? I would think that would be difficult at times when she just wants to chill out and recharge, while he may want to be around others. I will say that I can get very anxious when I am tired or know that I am not accomplishing my goals, which could be as simple as folding laundry to vacuuming the living room.
    She also worries a lot about the fact she doesn’t have a permanent job.
    Why is that?

    I am looking forward to the day when my Husband travels less too! Our life sometimes reminds me of the Adam Sandler movie "Click".

    What you mention is not really a problem. But you can see my dad’s extroversion in the number of projects he always has going on. ENTJs can be extremely intense in that department, and my dad is, so he has little time to spend on my mom, and she gets annoyed with how he is never relaxing, always thinking, planning, is never content. She complains it is hard to be calm around him, for example he seems to be constantly on the phone. My dad usually sleeps a lot on the coach though, in his defence. :P

    I don't care if it worked for you -- I still hate them! (Vile little beasties!)

    Of course, when I get the chance, I still end up getting as close to them as I can, to watch them. They both terrify and fascinate me.

    Did you ever see the couples' episode of Fear Factor where they locked the girls in plexiglass coffins after dumping buckets of tarantulas all over them, and the husbands/boyfriends had to work to get the coffins open as quickly as possible and release them? I think only one of the girls actually made it through the entire thing, and another one was literally reduced to hysterics.

    I still do not know if I could have done it.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    It's probably because you're introverted. My INTJ wasn't out carousing either, but when we met he I think he knew and he did everything in his power to win me over.

    I think that INTJ's are careful when choosing a mate but when they do they are usually very happy as they don't often make mistakes Anyway you're a cutie and I know there is a nice woman out there for you waiting for you

    Nope, Norway.
    Ha, I meant to say Europe. My Husband is English and they refer to trains as coach's as well.

    PS Watch out for these American women as they do seem to love European men! Something about accents? :confused:

    I could be wrong though.
    It is interesting that Eysenck judged extraversion in a colourless if not a benign way.
    Emotionality and divergent thinking he labelled neuroticism and psychotism, respectively.
    I am very psychotic. I fear of my sanity.
