    Every time I open this thread, I close it again, thinking, "I probably shouldn't reply."

Why are they not sympathetic and unempathic?

    Why is it when the opposite is done to them, they hide under a rock and act victimised? Sorrry to generalise all ISTPs
    My dad asked me the other day why I was frantically doing something for someone else. I responded I wasnt frantic, I was determined because it meant something to that person. He asked why when what I was doing isnt important and doesnt matter. I grabbed the remote out of his hand, acted like I was gonna hide it and asked if he cared about that because I wouldnt care since I dont channel surf or watch much TV. He responded that he would just go in the other room and watch TV, but he got the point. He is IxTJ, so its not a type thing.
