    You GO!

    I am a first born and I have been known to stand up to bullies - even guys.

    I'm an only child and quite protective, also of my male friends. Luckily, a potentially nasty situation will often dissolve since the would-be attackers get quite confused when they see a cute blonde with murder in her eyes. I'm very far from reasonable or pacifistic if someone dear to me is threatened.

    But I'll chime in on the self-defense lessons. I should take some of those myself.

    It's interesting that this thread turned into a birth order conversation, because I read a book about birth order (not sure which one it was), and the advice I remember was to look for a significant other whose birth order was almost opposite of yours - first born women (like me) relate better to non-first-born men with older sisters, for example. The theory was that first born men - especially with younger sisters - are used to being the protector and that can cause conflict with a head-strong first born woman, whereas men with older sisters are still protective, but are used to dealing with more assertive women. In my own personal experience, however, the men I've dated or are platonic friends with who have sisters - regardless of their birth orders - have been more protective than those with only brothers. FindtheJake's comments sounded very much like them.

    I married an ESTJ male, and he is protective to a nearly invasive degree, also incredibly jealous, both of which annoy the hell out of me.

    I think upbringing would be a big part as well- I've been involved with 2 different ENFJs and they were completely different. One of the guys was very protective of me and if someone else looked at me wrong he was there. The other guy wouldn't even defend himself, let alone me- I had to jump in when people would try to pick a fight with him because he apparently needed a woman to defend him!

    I'm jealous. And protective. I want to cut off the hands of males that touch my girlfriend even if it's just on "amicable" terms

    But I'm not controlling, meaning that I never ask about what the girl has done in her free time, where is she going, etc

    I'm married to an ISTJ and while he's protective he's quiet about it, usually it surprises me when it happens because I'm pretty independent and used to taking care of myself. The one thing he isn't is jealous, however.

    Really.

    PROTECTIVENESS

    I am a rank coward. At 5' tall and 95 pounds (on a pig-out day), I don't have much to defend myself with. If a group of men were to attack my sweetheart and me with the intention of raping me, I would stream like quicksilver into the nearest shadow. Fortunately, sweetheart is 6'3" and can fend for himself/me. I'm timid; he's protective. We're both INTPs.

    JEALOUSY

    I experience twinges of jealousy now and then, but I don't allow the feeling to affect the way that I treat people. Wouldn't be fair. It's my problem; I don't make it theirs. My boyfriend doesn't get jealous, and I don't give him a reason to.


    Edit: That is a beautiful cat picture, Natrushka!

    I didn't say that I didn't say it. I said that I didn't say that I said it. I want to make that very clear.

    I fail to see how your statement disagrees with mine. I can only assume you haven't read her posts on INTPc.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
