    Agreed on that. And no, mine is a 96' 300zx TT. Awesome car, if it does cost a bit more to keep running and maintained than other vehicles...

    Also, agreed with Aelan as well.

    ISTP here... my g/f is ESxJ... in almost 2 years, every once in a few months we had the same argument because I want to be alone while she wants more time with me.
    Shit, it's not my fault( ...sometimes I have an urge to just DO something. I can't be chit-chatting and love making all night and then repeat the day after. If I'm not sure I'll have my alone time at least on sundays, I become impatient.
    These arguments with her make me feel like I'm and egoist, self centered and undeserving of her love. She is emotionally attached and giving, to a point that I don't even understand, while I'm all for the "cost-benefit analysis" as someone already stated. I haven't experienced "emotional sparkles" with women since adolescence and I don't miss them at all.
    I don't know if and to what extent I should go against my 'lone wolf' nature to please others. To this day, I never made many efforts.
    Someone said that ISTPs are only truly in love with their hobbies: I agree completely.
    But I'm ashamed of being so heartless. I'd never hurt a fly, I have a strong sense of ethics especially in relationships... but still, I don't really feel it and it makes me very sad when people are offended by my attitude.

    not ISFJ either. the ISTP i dated invited me over all the time and then ignored me for HOURS. i watched him play internet chess, perfect dark, and watched so many hours of late night tv during our 4 year relationship. he also wrote music which was totally cool, but i would've rather been doing something else (like writing my own music) than sitting there bored out of my mind while he was doing all of his stuff. he expected me to always be available, but was not often available for me. it was stupid. i neglected many friendships trying to make it work, but he was basically a loser who made me feel bad about myself for being a responsible adult. in the end, not worth the effort.
    just throw it against the wall and see what sticks.

    You guys each need an ENFP to complete you.

    Sounds pretty extreme to me. That behaviour would upset anyone but a saint...
    Anyway, couples should be together for the sake of being together, but personal activities should stay personal :o
    I know that some people don't see things this way and try to involve their partners in their hobbies. But I'm not sure if their partners, then, get involved out of genuine interest or simply because they want to please the other-_-
    Anyway, as IxTP I value my hobbies also because they are things I can do by myself! I've never invited people to "watch" (unless they manifested the intention first, as it happens occasionally when I get my hands on some new item of interest to them).

    My best friends brother is an ISTP, and he's been in a very close relationship for about 8 months now, with an ESFP.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I've instantly clicked with nearly every ESFP I've met, they're such fun spontaneous people that always seem to be able to coax me out of my defensive shell. I have such a hard time staying connected with them though because they all seem to have a never ending list of people to hang out with already...
    In otherwords ESFP= happiness for ISTP

    @PinkPiranha....that sounds very scarily like my life, except that I always prefer to drive.
    Agreed with, on both points.

    In my experience I've gotten along best with NF's of all stripes in terms of dating. I like SJ girls if they're not too vanilla. But I don't discriminate at all based on type as a rule, it'd be silly, you know?

    I can't say I've ever cared about being in a relationship.
