Am I being completely annoying if I try answering about my INTP? Yes? Sorry
Someone constantly asking for help without trying to figure it out on their own is a sure way to make him angry.
Probably.Can I rely upon you to be direct if I request you to be direct and let you know civility is optional?
It would depend to a degree on the person who requested this. If he has seen previous behavior that he considered irrational or excessively emotional, he might not believe them. So if he thinks the person won't be able to take it calmly... well he's probably going to be avoiding you anyway.
(Sometimes I can tell he is upset about something, this aura of withdrawn unresponsiveness, when I ask what's wrong he says, 'nothing.' fffffuuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkkkkk. Ok it annoys me. I tried to tell him that it makes me question my perceptions. Is he upset? Am I reading him wrong? If he would just say 'yes, but I don't want to talk about it', it would be so much easier.
He finally told me that he says 'nothing' because he isn't sure if how he's feeling is rational. I was )
Don't direct him, don't manage him. Tell him the objective, discuss requirements, brainstorm with him. Let him get on with it.How do you like to be directed/managed? How would you prefer to learn or be taught?
(He also dislikes managing others)
He doesn't like being taught, but enjoys learning things on his own. He's a programmer so he's constantly expanding and refining those skills. Also he's pretty into forex and economics. Those systems seems to provide him with endless scope for analysis...
Sometimes it seems like learning/understanding complex systems isn't even a choice. His brain just latches onto them and obsessively works until everything unfolds to clarity. Once that's achieved, he drops it.
I think this is why he likes computer games, a system to figure out. But they're normally too simplistic to keep his attention for long. Once their system is sorted he's bored and never touches it again.
(At the moment Europa Universalis has him engaged)
He likes ketchup and tomato sauce. Although he had never tasted ketchup until I forced it on him. I'm pretty sure as a child he lived on tomato sauce... He likes pickles, again I introduced him, they only seem to have sweet ones here in NZ.do you like ketchup? with pickles? and bunnies? bunny hair?
He's not too keen on bunnies. I think he doesn't see the point. I used to have a little fluffy black one. He held it once. It was very cute.
Bunny hair? I think he likes it lining his slippers.
Oh god. I am not getting started on politics.what is your political philosophy?
I think MacGuffin summed it up perfectly
He was a quiet, self contained, well behaved little boy, with a whole host of imaginary friends and an obsession with the system of cricket. His mother raves about how good he was. Then he became a teenager. She shakes her head 'I don't know what happened!'What were you like as a little baby/little kid?
He may or may not like cocaine, but he'd probably never try it to find out. Way WAY to careful about his body. (He does enjoy weed in moderation, only from a vape. Smoke is Bad.)Do you like cocaine? buttercups? ketchsup on your cocaine?
I doubt the subject of buttercups has ever entered his head, let alone ascribing an opinion to it.
There is nothing but boundaries. He never gets even remotely personal with work. And he hates it when they start telling him personal things. And he hates it even more if they talk about their relationships.How comfortable are you talking about your personal relationships at work and are there boundaries?
I think he would find it ridiculous.I like 5. Do you have a favorite number?
