    Te Doms are the types I have the most trouble with, they want to control things by taking over and doing them their own way, my approach to things clashes with theirs. With ENTJs we can at least look at things the same way and respect the others approach, ESTJs and me are not a good mix, even the ones I get along with well, socialise around and share a group of friends with and so on are not a good mix with me. I can see their good points and appreciate that about them but we'll never be on the same page.

    Like Sim said, they want to control, I can't handle being controlled so I resist, they don't like that, I don't like that.

    An argument is best back up by a big stick. If you can fight, no one can have shit over you. That is y I highly encourage people to learn martial arts.

    If I get no respect, I will not continuously put myself in that position, again and again. It is unfathomable for me to understand putting up with disrespect. Either I take myself OUT of the situation, or reshape my approach to get an IN into the situation.

    With ESTJs (my dad is one), there's a lot of head-butting because I don't back down when he throws Te at me, and, in those moments, I love getting him riled up more and more (it's a game to me then). The lack of respect in those situations, becomes a TWO-WAY street.

    Otherwise, there's a mutual admiration and respect between us, as they appreciate that I can't be so easily malleable and we meet at the Ne level. My dom Ne to their tertiary child-like fascination with Ne. We make mad jokes between us.

    He's 21 or 22. I think it's when he's trying to be witty that gets him in trouble, at least with the ESTJs. This may sound like a stupid question, but how do you develop wit? Aside from watching Monty Python I wouldn't know where to start. I've never had this problem.
