    A lot of them take real pride in how their house looks "just so".

    The ISTJ's I know don't want to spend 14 cents for anything. If 14 cents is in their "budget", then the lawn will look great and they'll be very proud of it. But, if the 14 cents they planned on using in the "lawn care" category suddenly becomes 19 cents, they get very, very grumpy. And the lawn might start to turn yellow.

    I suppose INTP's are masochistic. Though ironically enough I think it's to find an imperfection, that they don't REALLY believe exists.

    It's spelled imperf...............oh, nevermind. But, sometimes, you see, the "imperfections" really do exist. Sorry, I had to do it simply for the irony.

    The older I get, the more I learn to let the small stuff go. But, it's hard to let things go if they're flat out wrong and they're just staring you in the face going:

    How do you mean that INTP's are masochistic though? Do you mean that by being finicky, we only end up hurting ourselves and/or pushing others away from us?

    I as a NF also have a predisposition in this direction. I am warm, personal and engaging in social or a professional setting, provided there is a common interest as well mission statement. If this not the occurrence then i find small talk abhorrent. I literally "Want to run to the hills," when meeting someone who wishes talking with incidentals. "What is the point?" I know, it is to establish plus reinforce social bonds so that the species acts in a group effort. It's only i am introverted and prefer to pursue my own creative and goal oriented activities. this versus small talk.

    I wondered if it was spelled with an 'm' instead of an 'n' I just didn't feel like looking it up. I changed it. I mean INTP's enjoy pointing out flaws in themselves as either a means to fit in, or too have an excuse for why they are the way the are, giving themselves a certain validation, which to them makes them appear normal. There is something comforting about having an external locus of control. I suppose this also comes with a secret inferiority complex, so I may be projecting.

    I don't quite see how seeing one's own flaws would make one masochistic. Many people try their best to avoid seeing their shortcomings to do exactly what I highlighted in bold text.

    Though I do see how you can perceive masochism in someone trying to smother out their flaws. Like picking at a scab. So I suppose all perfectionists masochists?

    Pointing out flaws isn't masochistic, but enjoying pointing out flaws in yourself I believe is in a way.

    Question

    The phrase "I don't understand" is what gets me in the most trouble! I don't read into subtext well, especially when it is being used to illicit an emotional response.

    I make my best friend tell me what kind of reaction she is looking for before I start speaking. Although, I do not see this as my problem...I think everyone should state plainly what they are thinking or feeling. I am not a fan of all that fancy double talk
