    Exclamation I moved in with my ISTJ.

    Survival tips?





    And we're splitting rent 50/50, so even though I'm moving in his place rather than vice versa, he can't go around acting like he's the boss.

    Is this the same ISTJ you've created your past threads about?

    lol, yes.

    I know him pretty well as a person, but living with him is a whole 'nother ballgame. And I can see his SJ clashing with my ExxP.

    Is there any particular conflict you foresee that you want to get the jumpstart on?

    Foresee? They've already happened. :P

    So far, we've bickered about...

    * My not noticing a goddamn cheerio on the floor. I'm not a slob, but this cheerio managed to fall down on the floor and roll under a corner without my having noticed it. I don't do a thorough wall-to-wall floor-to-ceiling 360-degree face-to-ground inspection 24/7, so come on.

    * My friend coming over. The ISTJ hates him, because he talks very loudly and gets in his personal space (I think there's something wrong with him - he's a really nice ENFJ, but I think he has Asperger's Syndrome). I enjoy the ENFJ, but every time he comes, the ISTJ gets pissy. These are reasonable hours, too.

    Arguing isn't necessarily a problem unless a resolution isn't reached. It's healthy and normal. You're different people trying to accommodate one another's differences. Disagreements are to be expected yeah?

    Meh, yeah. I've just never officially moved in with a guy (or vice versa), so I'm just kind of...whoah...about it. I probably wouldn't have done it if my old roommates were halfway sane.

    I just need some general pointers for living with SJs, since I've never lived with an SJ before.

    By the way, how do YOU know so much about ISTJs? You always come into my ISTJ threads.

    I don't claim to. But I know some ISTJs and some ESTPs for that matter.

    If there's anything my good friend K (ISTJ) and I have in common, it is that 1) we strongly value our personal space and we will respect others that respect ours, 2) we keep our cards close to the chest, and 3) we take our relationship commitments very, very seriously and we will fight the good fight to keep the loveboat afloat until that f*cker has gone total Titanic.



    Maybe the nitpickiness annoys you, but consider why he is nitpicky. You still may not share his priorities, but you might learn to appreciate them.

    @iwakar

    I don't think I'm ESTP, so got any anecdotes of your ISTJ + ExFP?

    You sound exhausting, but that's not really an anecdote.
