do all ISTJs live in dread fear of someone they aren't REALLY close too drinking out of thier glass or less than immaculate silverwear in resteraunts, or is it just mine?
So this is a type thing?
My ISFP girlfried got offended when we were first together and I told her that I didn't appreciate her drinking out of my glass. I told her we weren't that close. She brought up the kissing argument....well this is different!!
It's like an invasion of privacy! LOL
I also don't like someone just picking off my plate, either. Ask!
That might be because I have 10 sibs....dinner time was survival of the fittest!!!
I'm not that picky about silverware; If they are too nasty looking, I'll ask for some hot water and wipe them down. Either that or a lemon.
I pretty much do, yeah. It's not "dread fear," but it is gross and I don't allow people to do it. If a family member tries some food with a fork, then hands me the fork and says, "Try it, it's good!" I just respond, "...You used that fork."
I'm not that bad with family, unless it's the black sheep. Who knows where they've been?
For the ISTJ, would mixing work and play be similar to the chemist mixing elemental sodium with liquid water?
I'm asking because I'm not sure if I should invest in some safety goggles for dealing with my ISTJ boss from here on out.
If you are dealing with an older ISTJ, yeah...it's all work, then play. You don't mix the two. Like oil and water. Most younger ones have a better ability to switch it up. It's only when they are really focused on meeting a deadline, or something is so serious that it consumes all thought that they go hard with the work.
