    If i get too bored i phase out and leave asap either that or stir up a bit of argument. My sis is an INFP so we Ne-wind up my ESTJ dad who doesn't understand that he is having the piss taken out him. Or he understands we are laughing at him but not any of the jokes.

    I'm too busy cooking to care what they're talking about.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Are they the kinds of people that just sit around and talk about sports or what? I don't have a problem with talking with people unless they're like that (talking about stupid things), much less sensors.

    I am either quiet or pushing the envelope a little with the conversation while trying not to make anyone too uncomfortable. I have to steer away from debate topics as I can come off as pretty intense and sometimes hurt peoples feelings unintentionally. Other times I'll just do oddball shit to try and entertain. Last year I ate a spoonfull of the hottest horse-radish made on a dare from my brother.

    It highly depends on how I feel, sometimes I'll be giggly and cheery and play along and at other times I'll be all critical, sarcastic and non-responsive. In general, I like the family atmosphere, though.

    all i know is that no one was interested in my discussion about what our executive branch is doing to help remedy the drug war situation in mexico.


    but talking about my stepmom's ovaries and her so called weight loss were the topics of the night. how fun.

    Oy. That's the kind of current events-type stuff I'd be steering my sensors away from.

    I think at this point, I'm just immune to talk about who's doing what and who's seeing whom in our town, etc. I just kind of go to a happy place in my own brain. Really, the more invisible I can make myself, the better, because that means no one asks me questions about my job, who I'm seeing, etc., etc. I hate answering stuff like that.

    You have two options as I see it, kill yourself or kill all of them. I would go with the latter and justify it with the fact that one iNtuitive is worth at least 8-10 Sensors.

    a table full of sensors @ easter dinner + my ISTP stepdad pointing out inconsistant/odd shit that no one feels comfortable acknowledging = priceless.

    Plz, think of the ISTPs.
    With this in mind (and thanks for the invite, nozf )...
    Try this on for size, run:

    You're going to need to deal with the fact, sooner or later, that people are different than you. It won't matter how far across the country you are from what you think your problems are, because you're going to have to deal with similar problems your whole life. Everywhere.
    Whether S or N, T or F, or any other arbitrary distinguishing characteristic, everyone has to deal with other people whom they don't want to.

    It might seem like the easiest solution is to sit there and try to ignore it while staying insulated inside your own head, but that's just going to make things more tiring. Ultimately, the path of least resistance is to just adapt to it so you can enjoy it.

    I know, I know, you don't have feelings to consider and don't need to enjoy anything, but while you're not distracting yourself with that, it comes down to this: do you really want to spend your time (cue existential angst) feeling like crap, or would you rather find something to enjoy in it? Your choice.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
