    No no, I'm pretty good at tactlessness, although I do admit, INTJs can be realllly awful (as I'm engaged to one, I speak on behalf of her tact.)

    I think it's a I-T thing. All four types seem socially akward in different ways...

    I was curious. My husband doesn't respond to praise unless it involves superlatives. I have learned to adjust my vocabulary accordingly. He's also learned that when I say "good job" it means I am impressed, he knows I have high standars and I don't mince words.

    Gratsi for the input.

    Eh?

    Are you doing alright?
    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.

    Ok so I'm probably late for the party but here goes nothing. Have you as an ISTJ ever pretended to be a completely different personality type?

    I know this girl who says she's an INTJ but she doesn't seem to mesh or be anything like the other 2 NT's I know, one is an INTJ and the other is INTP. After reading all of the ISTJ responses she seems to be a perfect match with you.

    So is it possible for someone to put on that much of an act? Even if she can't do it successfully all of the time.

    Are ISTJ men ever warm and affectionate?

    If so, when, how and how to draw it out?
