    Do you have a bad temper if people don't:

    1 - Do things exactly your way

    2 - Follow your beliefs (for example if you had a child who grew up to go against your beliefs, or a husband who turns his back on those beliefs later on in life)

    3 - Follow the role you think they should

    Also, how do you view love?

    What did it take for your INFP to convince you of their love for you?

    Well, I used to be pretty hotheaded, but I kinda outgrew it. Now, #1 used to describe me as a kid, and I guess I still get frustrated at people sometimes; but, like I've said before, pretty much everything depends on specific circumstances.

    If someone such as my husband turned his back on our beliefs, I would be rather distraught, and some of it probably would come off as anger.

    Can you give an example of #3?

    As you may have guessed, I'm wondering... can you be more specific?

    Oh, it was rather apparent almost from the start. I don't think INFPs have all that much trouble making it apparent. I guess one of the first things that made me see it was how he was always there for me (I was going through some kind of rough times spiritually back then and had no one to talk to about it but him.) and how apparent he made it that he'd do anything for me. (I don't mean to sound sadistic.)

    Is there a way to make ISTJs less annoying and offensive? Do they even realize they are? I mean, even their signatures piss me off. They seem to do it naturally...

    What's so bad about mine? I just get sick of being mistaken for a male on message boards and being hit on in real life by people who know I'm female.

    Tactless INTJs? Well, I don't really know if I've met any INTJs 'cause I'm not too good at typing people yet. But... tactless? I thought that was the job of the ISTJ... *scratches head*

    See I would call this statement ironic, but google seems to say otherwise. I guess it could still be irony if you were referring to INTJs, but I wouldn't insult other INTJs like that, so I guess you just meant ironic for yourself.

    Nice way of handling it Ransomed, I don't think I would've reacted so well.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
