    I don't think I have ever even tried to win an INTJ over. Can't say I would try, unless I really liked them. On one hand, I love the challenge of winning someone over, but then my pride is a little hurt when they don't fall immediately for me.

    Not just rules like that, but in general. She will not budge, and I have incredible integrity! I have done nothing that would make her not trust me

    I am trying to figure out the best way to get her to lighten up, because A. I am going insane from not being able to have my desired spontaneity and freedom and B. people are going to think she is nuts.



    You don't have to gush of feeling all the time, but I'd prefer that someone be open to sharing their feelings when they occur. I don't like to pry, and it makes everything easier. As for being considerate, I've never seen you not be. Then again, I don't live with you.
    Haha yes, I can be rather....er...insensitive to someones wants, needs, feelings, etc. I can think a little more before I type on here, but then, I don't normally anyways. It just takes a little longer. Prying is no fun.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    When first meeting people. I like them to show interest in interacting with me. If that is the case, a good wit or slight sarcasm is something I like.

    In general. I love being challenged in a playful and direct way. I just can't resist the call of a difficult challenge.

    We're not too easily won, but we're totally worth the effort

    Besides being mother-daughter conflict, it also sounds like J-P conflict. Maybe if you go out, you could let her know that you'll check in with her at a specific time and let her know you're still alive. Usually curfews and regular cell calls are enough to satisfy my ISFJ and INTX mom and dad. Also if you haven't already, introduce her to the guys you're spending time with so that she knows they're nice human beings and not fanged grimy-handed monsters.

    I think she's just being a mom. It's her job to protect you. Eventually, when you show her how responsible you are, she'll give you more privileges. So my advice would be to try to understand where she is coming from, but also show her that you're a big girl and able to handle yourself in a variety of situations. This may take time.

    I am glad I am a wise, charming, patient [with somethings] person. Seems like I can win some people over

    Man, I am fifteen. I am a sophomore and graduating a year early [technically making me like a juinor].

    This means I will have one year to be a teenager before I am forced to go to college. I am going crazy.

    I am with an INTJ relationshipwise. Best relationship I have ever had.

    Wanna know why? He has logic!
