    It's certain behaviors that make me shut down, not types.

    Examples of behaviors that will make me shut down:

    *Be smothering or overprotective
    *Be overly effusive to the point of being insincere
    *Insult my intelligence or competence
    *Insist you are right and not be willing to consider another viewpoint
    *Be overly rigid about rules and not have common sense about when exceptions should be made
    *Be too talkative. Ask me too many questions and expect me to have answers immediately and not allow me to think things through.
    *Being more angry than the situation warrants
    *Being too nosy.

    People who don't laugh when I want to make them laugh or who take what I say waaaay to serious. These are often people with strong S and/or strong J, but not only.
    They say I only think in form of crunching numbers.....

    I shut down when somebody is really mean or hurtful and I don't have words to fight back.

    These also bother me, but I admit I am sometimes guilty of the ones I bolded. Especially insisting I'm right all the time. I'm sure it drives other people crazy so for the most part I just let it go.

    Another behaviour that causes me to "shut down" is other people giving me unsolicited 'advice'. I'm perfectly capable of making my own decisions. Most of the time I ignore what these people tell me and don't bring the issue up again ("shut down"), but every once in a while it will lead to a blow-up depending on how offensive or stupid I find the advice or how persistent the other person is.


    If there's one behaviour that drives me up the wall and will cause me to "shut down" more than any other, it is insincerity. I don't lie. I'm not a convincing liar. In general don't think lies are really worth being said. I expect the same behaviour in return. "White lies" aren't a big deal, I'll let them go quite easily, but if I find out someone more profoundly lied to me I will not be speaking to that person for a while. A particularly big lie? Forget it, I'm done, the proverbial door is closed, and I'm never talking to that person again. Ever.

    I often don't mix well with Fe-tertiary types or people who take conventional social graces to an extreme. When I'm in an adversarial exchange, it is interesting to be able to throw off types reliant on facial expressions and other emotional cues with a poker face, though.

    EJ's tend to shut me down as well as judgmental people in general. Stop harshing my mellow! *snickers at the irony of me judging the judgers*

    Extreme extroverts who require a response to everything they say. I can't even.

    my ESFJ coworker wants to know 'what's wrong' or 'what you say' every time I sigh or say something to myself. That's annoying.

    People who take my words too seriously/literally. I can get very flippant with (spoken) words, and those who can't take that make me feel like I'm walking on eggshells.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I can't believe I neglected to mention these two things. Big problem for me as well.
