    Which is worse?

    1) An INTP that is openly and obviously maladjusted.
    2) An INTP that believes that they might be well adjusted but in all honesty, it is all being held together with spit and tape. And barely.

    I don't know if I'm well adjusted. People that know me would say so.

    I also don't think it's really relevant to the OPs actual question whether we're well adjusted or not. Finding a compatible mate is more about finding compatible neuroses that you can live with and work well together. Everyone has issues. Whose do you want to live with?

    My INTP lover is easily offended... our biggest working issue is my criticism and his inability to not take it personally

    I am trying to become more aware of when what I say can be taken as criticism, and he is trying to become more aware of when my criticism is not directed at him.

    I am trying to think before I talk and he is trying to talk about it before it festers... is this not acceptable?

    I don't know.

    I just like stating the obvious.

    Then it is highly unlikely that you are INTP

    http://www.purdue.edu/usp/pdfs/mbtiresources/INTP.pdf

    "Because of the NTís distaste for stating the obvious or being redundant, the NT is apt to verbalize
    expressions of affection rather infrequently. To other types this seems cold and miserly, and they often
    are hurt by the withholding. To the NT, stating what is already established is raising doubt where there
    is none. The commitment has been made; the position has been taken. And this commitment stands until
    notified. Therefore, clearly, it is unnecessary and inappropriate to restate the established and obvious. "

    Fine with me, I think this personality type stuff is a bunch of hullabaloo anyway.

    I wonder then why it is used in very high level personnel assignment decisions in the federal government... I think there are plenty of people who could fall under more than one type, but, I disagree that it is "hullabaloo" as you so eloquently expressed

    I say personality 'typing' is hullabaloo, and you wonder why it's used by the government? The government? If anything you're reinforcing my statement.
