    OK, the way I read it, as it is an obliviousness index, is thus:

    INTP males - 33% are cruising along happily in a relationship, blissfully oblivious to the fact that their partners have taken out contracts on their lives.
    INTP females - 0% are content in a relationship where the partner is unhappy. This may be because females are generally less oblivious to the nuances of interpersonal relations or because few INTP females remain in a relationship longer than 15 minutes.

    I am gleaning that if my INTP becomes unhappy in our marriage, I as an INFJ woman, will pick that up and likely also become unhappy. But since I am happy, chances are he is happy, so he can safely cruise along in his obliviousness and it's all good and I probably don't have to worry too much about any bombshells of unhappiness from him.

    No big surprise, really. I already know that his happiness is intrinsic to my own and that my not making an unignorable fuss is intrinsic to his.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Hmm so I guess ISTPs either always make their partners happy, or are empathetic enough to be always unhappy when their partner is. I think I'll assume the first one, since nobody's ever accused ISTPs of being overly empathetic.

    Meh, happiness is overrated.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Or, ISTPs are never, ever, ever happy in any relationship. (I would insert some smart-ass smilie here but, frankly, I never use emoticons.)

    Yeah that's true, we could just be a horribly depressed bunch.
