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!)
I'd say the controlling aspect isn't healthy ISTP behavior, but the preference is within spec.
ISTP boyfriend of an INFJ friend was kind of the same way. He liked Asian girls that wore skirts, makeup, and dyed their hair. While my friend as Asian, she didn't do any of the other things. However, she was very intelligent and successful, so he gave her a shot anyway.
He did harass her about it, but also never tried to force her to be anything she wasn't. He eventually admitted that 'it fit her personality', and while it was still sometimes an issue last time I talked, it was better.
However, another ISTP friend couldn't care less. He sometimes wishes his wife didn't put as much effort into being 'artificially' pretty, as he likes her the way she is.
Based on what you said about this ENTJ, seems likely she's got someone that she deserves.
the most distressing part of it for an N type isn't your responses, but realizing that GTA actually doesn't have a plot that is anything more than just running around and shooting
I suppose I would've surmised that the need or drive to create efficiency is evidence of a J, but I haven't done an amazing amount of thought on it.
GTA has missions, I play it just to see what jumps I can take, how many cops I can get after me, how long I can last in a locked city evading the swat team. Just shooting people is boring. I mean there all just sitting there walking down the street. We like challenges.
We do strive for efficiency on things we dont like doing or are not good at. I try to be efficient to save time, not to try and lessen my work. The more efficient the more time I have to do whatever I want which may be nothing.
I'm willing to bet if you quizzed him on either Alliance or the Horde plotlines and story development, he would honestly not be able to tell you key points of the story.
For serious? That's really lame! I'd never played any of the subsequent Warcraft games until I played WoW, but the history was important. I mean, just to know. That way when I'm doing a quest or I'm in an area I just know. You know? Your ISTP is lame. You can tell him I said so.
