    You know, I wonder if we're the only type, that, as a group, second-guess our own way of doing things as often as we do type-wise. Excuse that sentence.

    So far, I agree with you completely.

    Thanks guys..........you are so much help. As much as I think I know what may or may not be transpiring, you give me a far better idea of what seems to be transpiring.

    It makes for an uncomfortable situation...so, at least kind of knowing what may be going on gives some comfort. **sigh**

    I like agree with moonbaby about the insight you all provide.

    I think liking predictability might have something to do with it .

    You mean the "look before you leap" thing? I've got that for sure (and it's very relevant to the thread topic).

    Look before you leap, yes I understand that....I do that myself.

    Though, there is an aspect I see in ISTJ's vs myself and other INTJ's.

    If it is in front of you, status quo and a sure thing, you may choose that as more realistic and accept it rather than to put all your energy and hope and time into something that may be far better but not promised.

    Does that make sense??? I am very tired tonight. Sorry. **yawn** zzzzzz

    The blue one doesn't look reliable enough, if I decide not to go for it. I like trying to consider all possibilities and taking everything into account, but sometimes when it's unreliable like that...

    I don't know. *sigh*
    After ignoring/avoiding me after copying his words back to him, he completely disappeared for 10 days....to only show up today, swoop in and defend my work in writing against another male who basically made it sound as if I were a silly girl...and was gone before I saw him.

    Guys, is this a game?

    How would it be a game? At the very least, it means he respects you.

    All right, since so many have spilled their guts, I'll share something of my own. Also I'm very bored tonight.

    I may have a small crush on a girl in my class. Maybe, I'm not sure. I don't spend time agonizing over it or anything. Strangely for her, she's the only girl in our very small class.

    We were all working on group projects one day, and I ended up in a group with her. The teacher came around to check on our tasks, and that girl asked the teacher about where to get certain supplies. He said, "Did you try asking your partners? Cimarron, do you have that thing?" And I said yes, because I did. The teacher likes to joke around with (almost playfully pick on) us students; he's a student-teacher himself, so he pointed it out to her, "You see? Cimarron had it all along! Your partner is standing around waiting for you, wondering when you're going to ask him..." She started laughing, since he was just joking around with her, and I tried to laugh about it too and just brush it off: "Oh come on!" This was what I had in mind earlier in this thread or other threads when I mentioned "trying to distance myself from the idea of me liking her, hoping nobody notices it" but also "keeping in mind what she might think of me, and not sounding too harsh in my cover-up" since that would completely defeat the purpose. I know, it even sounds too complicated to me. Chalk the whole process up to shyness.

    To kind of even everything out, when we were the last two people in class the next day, as she left I said goodbye, which I'd never bothered doing before. The next time, we were the last two out again, and as I was leaving she said goodbye to me! Cool. So I'm not getting my hopes up, but it's something I think about, a little bit.
