Okay, I need to rant here, because my ENTP father told me this morning that he never wants to see me ever again, and I thought that was rather harsh.
In the past I stopped speaking to him for seven years, but I never said I didn't want to see him again ever. There were things he could have done to get me to talk to him, but he was too fucking retarded to work it out. So I thought fuck it, I'll start building bridges with him because he's never going to work it out and one day he'll be dead and I'll feel bad if I don't. But like a spoilt brat he'd throw tantrums because he wanted everything exactly like he wanted them, right away.
He could have had things as he wanted them if he hadn't been so stupid in the past. But he has no grasp that the laws of cause and effect come into play in your dealings with other people. On my first trip to see him after we started talking again he asked me why I was seeing him. I answered "karma". He took that very badly because he wanted me to want to see him. But what the fuck did he expect? After all those years we would embrace each other in some teary reunion? Real life doesn't work like that, and if he had any sense he would take what he was given and work with that rather than push me away.
And there's the rub. My problems with NTs are not that they conform to the stereotype of emotionless automatons, but when they do get emotional they are so fucking retarded. It's like they're emotionally incontinent. They can't control themselves. He suffers greatly from having poor relationships with his children, but he can't help himself. I feel bad for him because he's the one that suffers most.
[Okay, all that was generalisation from just one ENTP, but like I said, I needed to rant]
