    This.

    It is easier to list what is not annoying.
    This too.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    It depends on the person and the amount of time. I don't talk to or email anyone every day, except my SO whom I live with, and my coworkers. Many of my personal relationships already have established patterns of contact and no-contact. Meaning, most of my friends and acquaintances know it is common to go weeks or even months without hearing from me. If they initiate contact, though, I will usually respond within a couple of days. I will tell my SO, though, if I plan to spend the entire evening alone working on something.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    If you have communicated with Ne users, did you run into some kind of trouble like misunderstandings, etc.? If so, I'd appreciate a concrete example or two.

    And what about Se/Si users?

    P.S. Talking about face-to-face communication here, not written communication.

    What are your thoughts on ISTPs? Have you had experiences working with or dating them?

    Funny that you ask, cuz I was just thinking about this yesterday.

    One of my four or five best friends is an ISTP, but, tbh, his ISTPness has always bothered the shit out of me.

    Often times ISTPs bother me; they think they're know-it-all's, but they're really kinda simple-minded, imo.

    That being said, as I said at the beginning, I was thinking about this same question yesterday.

    I think, if the ISTP is open to Te input, then the INTJ can be good with them.

    I noticed that that's where my friend and I run into issues.

    We both really like to discuss politics (and philosophy).

    But I bring up real world evidence (as well as practicality), and he doesn't want to accept it.

    It's like it doesn't fit into his Ti map of the world or something, so it's not acceptable.

    Doesn't matter that the evidence is right there staring him in the face.

    He also might be an INTP, but I think he's an ISTP.

    His older brother is an INTP (and near-genius).

    My friend is really good at sports.

    His brother is not.

    Hm, that's odd for an ISTP. The ISTPs I know accept real-world stuff. Although one of them has bold opinions related to pessimism, tells me that I'm too optimistic. Ironically, in a month or so, he changes his views to my views, after seeing it actually happening. Yet he thinks that "my head is in the clouds."

    Yeah, it's part of the reason why I still consider INTP.

    But he's really good at sports, he's an electrician, and he was always a little bit less intelligent than the rest of us (though still gifted).

    His not accepting stuff has to do with not wanting to accept practicality or evidence that goes against his overarching, big-picture convictions.

    It makes me thing there's something going on along the TiFe axis, wherein he doesn't want to sacrifice those ideals for Te practicality/evidence.

    Wow. I get different things from the INTJs I know. Most they complain about is my not making plans. Seems to bug the crap out of them and they will almost take it personally. Also, I have heard from 2 different ones "you make me think about things in different ways". Generally, we get along pretty well and I'm the more optimistic of the bunch!

    I wouldn't say that any INTJs head is in the clouds tho. They seem pretty grounded. But ppl are different. We do share similar humor. Seems to be a bonding point.

    Interesting.

    It's the negative nancy ISTPs that bother me.

    I've actually seen that the ISTP personality is associated with negativistic personality disorder.
