    Yes, I can't really think of many instances where I've tried to control someone else. I can think of several examples where I've gotten annoyed, upset, or outright mad at someone for trying to force me (or a loved one) to do something that they didn't want to do.

    Maybe this guy just needs a hug.

    I want a hug too.

    I'm pretty sure if it were as simple as a hug, Tiny would've already solved the problem by now instead of making the thread at all

    Heh, that sounds very much in line with the personality. We are distant and removed, for the most part, not close and involved. Especially with people.

    I still couldn't identify the main problem from the OP to here, to be honest, so I have no comment in general... but the controlling part seems way off from what I've read.

    It always makes him sound like he's broken.

    But hugs do help, heh.

    Yes, even an ISTP can become controlling, judgemental, and hurt those we love. trust me.

    Sorry, I didn't quote everything I replied to and worded my response poorly. I wasn't trying to say that the preference to control was in spec, but rather it's not unheard of that a male ISTP may have preferences on how his girl dresses/looks.

    I agree that healthy ISTPs are some of the least controlling people out there.

    Oh yes, that I can agree with... we certainly can have preferences, and we can verbalize them in a more direct way. We don't always communicate it well either, so I can see how other types might see this as controlling. The strange thing about it is that it is more 'blackmailing', as a result of being so independent - don't do what we like, and we tend to withdraw and stay away.

    And of course, all types have their own coping mechanisms. As mentioned above, ISTPs can absolutely be controlling in very negative ways, just like all types can.

    So it's 3 of you roommates against the 2 others?

    Jeez...who'd wanna live like that? Too much drama.

    I say move, ask them to move, or learn how to ignore them.

    See, I don't see disharmony as something to get away from but as a challenge. When faced with a disharmonious situation my way of coping is trying to understand why there is disharmony and making sure that I am at least doing my part to be as accommodating as I can where I need to be. I would feel uncomfortable abandoning a situation before I feel like I've done my best to improve it.
