    Her boyfriend is completely unattractive to me. I just felt like I hadn't given him a chance to be friends and felt really really bad about it.

    But it makes sense that an ISFJ would think that! It is important to me to have the people I surround myself with daily be like my family. I enjoy the way he thinks and have always envied SPs for their efficiency. The opportunity to get to know someone with a way of thinking so alien to me was not one that I could pass up.

    I am really curious as to why you would think I had the hots for the guy because this is not my motivation in the slightest.

    Ahh. I thought that because you also said the girlfriend was not in good standing in the house either but there was no mention of a concern to make her feel like family, so I wondered why him and not her? Does he criticize his gf's hobbies too? Also, I didn't pick up on any indication that you enjoyed the way he thinks before you said it explicitly in this post.

    Sometimes Ns treat Ss like they are aliens from the start, but they complain that it's the other way around. Anyways, I apologize for jumping to conclusions if you sincerely just want to bridge the N/S gap, and for what it's worth, there are Ss all around if you want more practice with this. To be honest, I'd probably freak out at first in a house full of Ns too. lol

    See, that's what I figured. Most of his friends are sensing types and I have come to the conclusion that the two perceiving functions are just so vastly different that if you have very strong Se, intuitive leaps can appear unfounded and, well, pretty dang silly.

    I have lived with the girlfriend for three years now, is the thing. She has, over these past three years, slowly revealed her true colours to be... well I dunno what colour heinous, remorseless cokehead bitches are.

    She has pulled seriously sheisty underhanded shit on all her roomates at some point (which is why all previous roomates, especially girls have all left abruptly). I'm the only one that has stuck around. I guess all of her madness just came to a head over the past year and I just stopped being quite so quick to forgive her.

    I suppose befriending her boyfriend was my bizarro way of proving to myself that she wasn't all bad. I had blamed him for my relationship with the ENTJ gf going sour for a long time, but ever since we've gotten to know each other better I have come to a conclusion that the charismatic and spunky girl I made friends with almost four years ago was just a well cultivated cover for the bully I live with now.

    Harsh. Well there's only one thing for it. Vote her off the island and keep the ISTP for the lulz.

    life is too short to suffer such negativity or dishonesty in those close to you. and as well, life is much better when you are not apologizing all the time for just being you.
    I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.

    Unleash the hounds. Preferably very small fuzzy hounds with pink toenail polish.

    Oooh! I do have a small fuzzy hound and he does hate her (but not nearly as much as he hates the ISTP).

    Hilariously enough, they almost broke up today and as it turns out, the ISTP is super controlling, going so far as to basically picking out her clothes for her, insisting that she wear makeup at all times and complaining when she doesn't shave her legs (Winter, in Brooklyn! She's allowed to not shave her legs once in a while!).

    Is this an incredibly unhealthy example of some kind of ISTP behaviour or is this guy just a dick to his girlfriend? Do ISTPs find themselves being controlling (though I doubt any of you express it in ways as douchey as this!) to their SOs?

    (I'm not accusing, I'm just curious!)

    Um, he's just an ass. We (or at least me), are some of the least controlling people around generally. I give others the freedom to do as they want, and expect the same in return....that's really it.

    Sure he's an ISTP? Sounds more like unhealthy ISTJ.
