    I know Ps are supposed to be good with change and Js are not, but we just have not seen things work that way in our relationship.

    There is the "paradox" ..

    Alas they do not get it.

    Hell if the change wasn't brought about via INTP thinking then it's just plain wrong and SHOULD be subject to the auto resistance measures to the fullest!!!

    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
