    I love conversations that go off on odd tangents!

    I just have the horrible habit of looping back occasionally in conversations because I think of something that refers to a topic from 10 min in the past or so

    What's wrong with a loop back?

    They didn't me until I was about 30. Si can really pull me off on strange tangents, trying to capture some mood from the past and use scent, taste, music or sight to reproduce it.

    my family likes to joke that if you missed something in the conversation earlier there's a good chance that you'll hear it again when I loop back

    In my time on this board I've found that INxPs and I are completely incapable of communicating effectively. From my perspective they're so wrapped up in their own ideas and feelings that nothing I say gets through. Probably due to our functions being reversed, my Perceiving is introverted theirs extroverted, my Judging extroverted theirs introverted. Not really sure since I don't grok MBTI.

    Seconded! You're one of the funniest people on the forum and I completely dig your laconic observations.

    I make an effort to communicate with most people, to the point where I've been told I should've stopped trying. Sensor/Intuitive mean nothing in the real world. I am completely dumbfounded by the mindset that some intuitives are incapable of having more than superficial conversation with sensors. I'm so grateful that I hang around the S/N border and can find some connection with whoever I'm talking to.

    If I can't communicate with someone or grasp a conversation (but that really doesn't happen to me unless it's something esoteric that I've never heard of) I figure out a way to depending on my interest level. Of course, it depends on if the person is someone I want to get to know better, but that doesn't have much to do with S/N. I know quite a few intuitives whose paths I wished I'd never crossed. This doesn't mean that I don't think that there are S/N differences in communication, but they don't seem to be as insurmountable as some people have implied. I guess it's about how motivated you are to communicate with someone.

    My boss in an intuitive and she's the crappiest communicator I've ever worked with. She expects everyone to intuit her and extrapolate meaning and the gets upset when she's misinterpreted. Only after pressure from other people does she explicitly say what she wants and then I get to hear her rant about how thick people are. The only reason why I've gotten by working with her is because I catch on to what she's saying (sometimes she just wildly waves her hands as a substitute for a word and then I start saying what I think she means and she says yes, yes!), but you shouldn't have to play guessing games in order to understand what someone is saying. I just try to adjust my methods of communicating to who I'm with and it's not that big of a deal to me.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    So you can wax on about candles?

    Do you also muse on the Classics?

    Hmmm... could be perspective. Kinda sounds like hubby and me. Thing is, I think I speak very precisely and succinctly but he might describe me more as you have your boss. I also act pretty much as she does because he's usually missed the one really operative word I've said while he was busy feeling the impact of it.

    Cool

    See Dewey, I am an INFJ, but I don't mind at all when you explain things. Sometimes my assumptions are wrong. Even though I am Intuitive for the most part, sometimes I need explaining. I think sometimes I piss off Meta because I need him to explain things occasionaly. But mainly I think that's because he doesn't like explaining things. I guess it just shows how borderline I am in some cases. It just depends on the situation.
