    During a relationship I'll simulate conversations in my head and formulate responses based on reactions I think that I will get from different responses. Then if something ever happens, good or bad, I'm completely ready, but I'll fumble it up because I have to vocalize it.

    Which leads to another round of analysis, and so on.

    After a break-up I tend to look at all the facts in an objective manner. Then I realize the times I totally messed up and feel guilty. I won't talk about exes much because I have a voice in my head that tells me I'm sounding whiny or talking about her too much, even if it is one sentence.

    I know for myself....that having let someone get close to me (when I let so very FEW in)...letting them go is impossible. I dont think I ever truly let go. For some reason ISTJs seem like they are better at blocking that out than Ns. Or are you just burying it? Do the feelings really ever die?

    Oh no, it's often still there. Letting go in the emotional sense takes a long time, probably because my emotions were invested so deeply, like you said.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Whenever I get rejected by a girl, I usually get really arrogant for an hour, and then close up for like a few days. I can't imagine what it'd be like after a failed relationship. I think I'd go a 6 month period where I didn't trust any women.

    Hearing about any heartbroken ISTJ is heartbreaking... One ISTJ I knew actually went about making the girl in question's life HELL!!! I felt sorry for him but there came a point when it just was cruel and horrid and I lost all sympathy... NOTE TO ALL ISTJs - I am NOT saying that this is how all ISTJs react he was a particularly unhealthy one!
    ... couldn't drag me away

    I spend a life time with that and I haven't even dealt with any hardcore trauma in that sector.
