    Underlined part I need clarification, is this matter related to feelings? If it is so, then it is a feature of inferior Fe. Otherwise, both ISTP and INTP are suppose to be precise in speech, and always makes sense.

    Italicized part you need to clarify. I don't know how but you need to figure out whether he is truly oblivious, in which case he may likely be INTP, or he is pretending to be oblivious, in which case he may likely be ISTP.

    I don't normally associate humor with types personally.
    The INTP type description fits better than ISTP.
    I don't know how else to describe it.
    If you think that he's an ISTP based on what you've read, then you are welcome to put your advice in as well, since I don't really want to spend the time walking through the descriptions and giving examples to convince you otherwise.

    (I'm really looking for practical advice based on his actions more than trying to prove how I arrived at his type. If others think he's an INFP, ISTP, xxxx, whatever, based on only what i've said, they are also welcome to input! There. I should have myself covered here.)

    This is your problem. Not mine. I find the type descriptions biased personally. I much prefer building understanding though the functions.

    Well, its like I said, if you're bursting with advice for dealing with this in an ISTP, go for it! Can still be insightful whatever his type is.

    My next advice is re-read stuff you missed from previous posts.

    No, I got it, I think.

    If I decided that he's an ISTP, then I can be reasonably sure that he doesn't care at all. If there's a problem he would have fixed it by now.

    And that my examples were ones of Ti and not Ti plus Ne.

    and that I need to ask myself more questions before typing him. He may be an ISTP.

    Thanks!

    He sounds pretty immature, find an older guy, the male brain doesn't fully develop until 25. Though we are giant babies for life in many ways.

    Creep creep creeepin! :P

    I'd offer myself as a viable replacement INTP, but alas, it shall not be. If you still want to work it out with that other INTP, I'd suggest trying to be as open as possible when you think he's misreading you. Be upfront and very clear about whatever your intentions and feelings are so that he actually understands and doesn't have to jump to conclusions. Unfortunately for us, it we get to the point where we feel like we have to second guess your intentions, I've found that the relationship is already on the downhill slope. Trust for INTPs means A LOT, and if it begins to wane in any part of their mind then it needs to be corrected promptly or it will continue to be a growing thorn in the relationship.

    Sometimes our social ineptitude and strong Ti leads us to false conclusions about the people we love, and their intentions. In this depressing world full of unscrupulous characters, we sometimes get carried away with the possibilities floating in our minds (...paranoia) and fail to see the true nature of those close to us. Just tell him you love him, and tell him to stop acting that we because it annoys you and puts a strain on the relationship. Tell him not to worry so much.

    And if that doesn't work then... .

    Type description can feel like it fits someone really well, especially when looking two types with near same functions. You should look at functions seperatly what fits better on him.

    Extraverted iNtuiting
    vs
    Extraverted Sensing

    intp and istp use these both, but stronger function shows stronger and more often. you can see if someone is sensor or intuitive quite easilly when you know what your looking for.
