Even if you are calling the shots and have a handle on an ISTP, its probably best not to brag about it. I had somebody at one point I considered a close friend and the most anoying habit of hers was that she'd tell me I loved her in a sort of playful way. I guess I am sort of a crumedgeon because I always wanted to tell her she wasn't that great, and if I had less social tact I probably would have.
...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
You jane, me tarzan I will let you build your house in my jungle
I will initiate contact if you really mean something to me, but it has to be for a reason. Always let me find that reason and I will never lose touch.
LOL..yeah..you are ISTP
It's just that to me, I enjoy people coming to me coz I enjoy my space, but don't mind them tapping on my shoulder if something's on their mind or they just want some fun. I'll keep from initiating convo's though if I can help it, coz I don't wanna be pushy and force people into a convo out of politeness (I know, I know).
So...I'm kinda wondering how that works with you guys, I guess. Ime, ISTPs tend to leave a convo very abruptly and..when intrigued enough, seem not to have a problem initiating one either.
I reread this post and thought, seriously, screw being king of a castle, I want to be king of a jungle.
Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.
Is it correct to assume an ISTP will usually take what they want, if they can, without a second thought and without intending harm per se?
!For the record, I do not claim ownership over any ISTPs, nor any sort of control, I was merely checking if leashing one was an option. They often seem to vibe the need of a leash and collar as well as a courageous yet gentle hand to hold it who understands how to use it properly. For that matter, I'm willing to exchange leashes, since i know it will be a very long and elastic one indeed ( I aint too fond of being bound myself though I do need to be put in my place on rare occasions..)
