He (and my INTP son) also have an aversion to pushing things down into the garbage or trash, placing them gently on top where they're likely to drift out of the container. Sometimes I give a good push and an almost full basket is suddenly only half-full. This is strange to me as they both watch the goriest shows with aplomb, and my husband handled our kids' dirty diapers with no problem. Can anyone relate or explain?
Ha ha ha. I do that.
Maybe, it's because the trash can isn't mine. My mom does most of the cooking so most of the kitchen trash is hers. I don't know what's in it, so I don't want to touch it. Because I really am filthy, I don't mind my own filth, but I am so squeamish about other people's houses that aren't perfectly clean.
How pessimistic and flippant of you, Nadir. Do you mean to tell me you've lost faith in MBTI's predictive capacity? Actually, I don't blame you.
It seems to work, but only if you take the individual out of it. You'd have to take a large group of people that tested as the same type, and cite traits common to them to get a good picture of a type. Most individuals are too full of internal contradictions and idiosyncrasies to be properly typed, but groups are more stable in ways.
Anyway, here's my three cents again:
1. Unable to express wealth of internal compassion because their conscious personalities usually don't permit it.
2. Have tendency to rationalize (get it?) everything that isn't consistent with their current pet theory.
3. Can be so driven to find truth or intellectually achieve that they forget why their looking for it and don't see themselves becoming dejected by this until it hits them suddenly.
1. Neglecting, abandoning, or failing to spark friendships at all.
2. Skipping tasks I see as a waste of my time and suffering the consequences for it, but clearly not caring, and so often punished furthermore for being flippant or arrogant.
3. Not meeting people worth meeting.
