    @shortnsweet. Hm, that's odd. Mostly because I don't find myself being at all like that generally.

    @PinkPiranha....that sounds very scarily like my life, except that I always prefer to drive.

    That is the exact reason I prefer her to NOT drive. She's improving a bit though, with some help from me....in HER car. Until I can not be scared to death with her driving, she isn't touching my Z.

    No, not actually. He is very gentle with me. And most of time he is joking or sarcastic so most of time I don't take him too seriously. I think he appreciates me being very different and tries to understand me.

    I give him space because I require space too. I'll give him freedom to do most things he want to do. I have no desire in controlling him. I trust him. He can be very blunt but apparantly he appreciates and/or understands me better not to be too blunt. And sometimes if he is, I don't really take it so seriously. The thing is just working with us two for some reason, cannot really put my finger on it.

    It's not one of those 350Z fake sports cars, is it?

    I had two '85 300s, one turbo. It was fast for an 85.

    It's not the question that makes you a lametard -- it's that you say out loud that you're a lametard that makes you a lametard.

    From the two ISTPs I know here... the common observation was they would not actively seek out the relationship themselves, ergo, you'd need a partner who'd act to bring them into one, yet in a way which does not make the ISTP feel like he's losing control - rather, a more gentle yet firm guiding that helps them realise they are better off with that person, so they'd stay in it from a cost-benefit analysis.

    But to evoke real feelings from an ISTP, I think you have to bypass that cost-benefit mindset, and difficult as it is, to engage their emotions. That is the spark they miss, and I feel, that is the spark that makes them stay with one person more than any cost/benefit can: someone who understands and is able to draw out their emotions, in a way, bringing colour to them.

    In that respect, I think an I/mild E would work well, a J softened by Fe - to set the boundaries and yet have patience without losing direction. The ISTP cannot feel manipulated as his trust is easy to lose.

    I would go for an N though, vs. an S - the intuitive is better able to show possibilities I feel, and would create more growth for an ISTP - I feel with a fellow S, they could easily fall into a trap of routine and fail to express fully and thus take the other for granted.

    I could see Ti being a nice match, if paired with N, as the thought processes would feel similar, yet from a new angle which could be intriguing.
