    Considering that many Ps are quite obviously annoying and should be shot plus many of my friends and family are Js I'd say yes.

    Personally I'm more likely to befriend a J than a P because at least you know what you've got without having to try and bring out the industrial tools to get at the interesting stuff. There's nothing more annoying to me than a habitually avoidant P!

    I've learned now to counter this with insistance that she chooses where we eat and *I* don't mind if she's bossy
    Argh . . . I had a picky ESTJ-friend pull this same thing. So half-way through she was clearly less than thrilled. I told her I refused to let her ruin it for me when she clearly had preferences she didn't express and I was the one who truly didn't care where we went. And then I ate my dinner with relish.

    Some, of course, resist even the most thorough measures... this is what we, in the know, breed special cats for. Talk or your thighs get acupunctured into next week!!!

    i like Js. i prefer to be the only anomaly in my environment, so i tend to be more comfortable around them in a "i like to know my boundaries so i can break them" sort of way.

    i dont like when people "J me out", but that really has nothing to do with real J-types as much as someone exemplifying the more annoying of the stereotypes

    like, you know, you have to put your dishes in the washer a certain way, or whatever. what if i dont want to take the mule tour once we're in mexico? i need to save my pesos for questionable looking street food

    This is on my mind again today. Still wondering.

    Any personal experiences to share?

    Look at it this way.

    In the case that they can get along this world would have collapsed long ago.

    Also, Hmm; for your consideration.

    It's no worry if there's a might too much for you to grapple with -- I tend to get verbose when frustrated.

    Thanks. I've just read a few posts of that and I can tell it's something that might help me. Why are you frustrated though?
