    I help ground her reasoning. Her mind goes 50 million directions in reasons like a pro/con list and she confuses herself and I help bring her back to what matter, what she cares about which let's her hit things head on and not round about.

    My SO is ISTP. The road is paved with diamonds, but predictable, jagged pits. My emotions take a damn beating.
    He's a lot friendlier and generous with people outside the family. It really irks me that he can say to the blond bombshell friend of ours on Twitter that he sympathizes with her when she tweets about dark moments, but doesn't have those words for me. Is he full of shit, or does he really have sympathy only for people outside of his family?

    Sorry, ISTP's, I really admire you guys, but I'm still raging inside because mine bought a Christmas gift for each of *our* kids, but not for my oldest who he "raised" (tolerated) from the time she was two. My Ni forethought advised him ahead of his gift buying to make sure all the kids were gifted because I didn't want him to look like an ass again. He didn't hear me...and he looked like an ass...and I was once again angry, hurt and embarrassed when I realized what happened. Once again he turned the issue against me.

    I kick myself for still loving him after 28 years of this. When things are good, and they usually are, things are really good. He is simply aloof to certain things that violate my sense of values.

    Bottom line - If you lead with your emotions, don't get any closer than next door neighbor with benefits.

    Don't relate at all. Family and GF come first always. It's the reason why her family respects me so much. Yes I do treat other women very well, but I treat the person I am with better.

    My niece lives with me that I have known since she was 2. I have taken her to Disney world and lots of other places. She is my exes sisters daugter. I have pretty much "unofficially" adopted her since she was around 10. She is 20 now and has moved in here. I still treat her like my own.

    Sounds like you have an ass, irregardless of istp.

    He did come around to redeem himself and make peace. Maybe it's the enneagram 3 facet, idk....or you could be right.

    I don't know. I have never said...oohhh...let's go on an adeventure or even think of things as adventures. Big difference between enfp and istp. What she labels as an adventure I just see as living. Heading to a different city, going somewhere unkown and such. I don't see it as adventures, it's just a part of living life. I am really up for anything, love physical, sight seeing, etc. I really don't know what an adventure is per se though.

    I went snorkeling in Hawaii in the rain when no one else would go, came really close to huge sea turtles and a crazy amount of really cool fish. I don't see it as an adventure, it was just something fun to do at the time.

    Cruise was fun, going tbrought Belize on a bus ride and seeing all parts of it, even the run down parts. Took a ride in Hawaii with a local guy down a 4x4 only road to a small little beach that had wild horses, etc. Then he took us through all the back roads and picked some leechee to eat off a tree.

    Some of this was with people other then enfp.

    I guess this stuff is adventures. I don't know. We categorize things WAY differently. I have this pull w fine tune her categorization because it's very shallow and short sited. But alot of the world is. Abstract example is

    Her: xyz is fun
    Me: no its not it's abc you enjoy, it just so happens to be during xyz in this instance.
    Her: yeah

    Alot of stuff like that.
    Im out, its been fun

    It's like the Indiana Jones-Marion Ravenwood dynamic.

    ..although Marion may have been ENFJ or even some form of ST herself. I need to watch Raiders again, it's been a while.
