    I would have said "I don't want to answer that question."

    If you asked why, I would have said "because I don't want my advice to have, in any way, contributed to your future lack of well-being."

    But if you kept pressing, I would have said, "Find another job first. Only then, quit your job."

    Oh, and I do find some N's annoying for similar reasons as you.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

How do you ever get anything done? Plus, if you do somehow get them to answer a question, it makes no freaking sense. Examples (because that's how I roll):

    ME: Should I quit my job now or wait until I have another one lined up?
    N-people: Well a lot of people have jobs.
    ME: Right... so should I quit my job now or wait until I have another one lined up?
    N-people: You could quit your job now but you could also wait to have another one lined up.
    ME: I know that already. That's what I just asked you though. I asked YOU that same thing in question form.
    N-people: Asked what?
    ME: *blood starts boiling* Should I quit my job now or wait until I have another one lined up?
    N-people: Ooooh right, right. I would put cooked spaghetti in my mailbox for a week or so.
    ME: *turns into the Hulk*

    My answer would depend on how much I care about you. If I cared I wouldn't answer that way^. I would try to help. If I really could give a damn, I would probably ask you, why the hell you're asking me. You're an adult, answer your own damn question.

    Now if you would care to discuss the pros and cons, and ask less general questions, we might get somewhere. I certainly don't want to dig all the variables out of you. I have better things to do, like clean my toilet, or wash my cat.

    Ooo, you're better than I am.

    You should ask an ENTJ instead.

    Not only will they answer your question, but they will write out a full life plan for you.

    I'm talking 10 year plan, 20 year plan, and 50 year plan. Both career and personal. Also, with alternatives and their potential outcomes.

    I have no option but to endure iNtuitives on a daily... secondly basis!

    on your op though, I usually am much better at giving other people advice than fixing my own problems- mostly because I care more about what happens to me Mostly it would involve asking you what the pros and cons of both situations were and asking you which you thought came out ahead... this approach gets the most admiration for help-ability with the least amount of me actually listening occurring!

    on my own arbirtary decisions though? coin flipping tends to do the trick...

    Well then. Tell her to stay clean, pest free, and well groomed.

    I doubt she would appreciate being plastic wrapped. She would smother me in my sleep.
