    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Y'know, as long as it's constructive negative feedback... Not like I'm asking for a hate parade

    Lol, I agree once again! I can't handle the pressure for feelings.

    One thing I've noticed over the years is that I hate it when people make decisions for me. And by that I mean that "Oh, I was going to ask but I didn't think you'd want to go/thought you were busy..." kinda stuff. Fuck what you thought. Ask me and find out. I appreciate it, kthxbai.

    Sturdy bed I could see, but avoid combustables? What if I like burning shit too?

I will become very objective and work to debunk every little assumption that had to be made to reach a conclusion.

    Ah, okay then. That makes sense, because I only verbalise my frustrations when I really feel justified to. I never defer to her over everyday things. She is objective when it comes to topical matters and refuses to take things at face value; she likes to figure things out for herself and question how the speaker came to their conclusion. It was just the full-blown display of support with no hint of objectivity that through me. Then again, I have a habit of only seeing speculative questions as being unbias, when it's probably more of an INTP thing. I don't think puzzling over the "what ifs" is something an ISTP would do.

    Thanks for answering.
    Um, yeah.

    ITP types are known for their objective thinking, right? So if I were to rant about someone/something to my ISTP, naturally, she would offer another perspective on the matter? Just to be objective? Whereas an ISFP would be all-out supportive, emphasizing my needs and how dare the other person be so rude? Well, my ISTP is more the latter. She always takes my side, never seeming to weigh up the information objectively. Unless TiSe is less into evalutation than TiNe? Would ISTPs offer support to their partner, regardless?

    It's just that even when I try to be supportive, I always end up trying to justify the people she defers to me about. I'm not a very good bitching-buddy. I'm just confused about her type, basically.
    I am like this and I'm 90% sure I'm not an F.

    I've just learned that it serves no purpose to point out the other person's point of view, other than very mildly. The person complaining to you will just get angry/more upset. T doesn't mean you have to be a brutal socially awkward robot, as some Ts here will discover later in life.

    lol, you're so right.

    I just let T take over most of the time. I really do try to be more sensitive, but it's gotta be someone I care about...someone whose feelings I care about. I'm much better now than I was before at saying "Now, this isn't what *I* think, but this might be where s/he is coming from..." Hopefully I reinforce that it's not my view and I state my perspective and reaffirm that I'm on their side (y'know, if that's the case).

    Sometimes it's just hard for me to care and I want the person to shut up. Not so often in a relationship. I don't mind listening to them most of the time, especially if it's a big deal to them. I'd want to be listened to. I should shut up and listen in return.

    My standards are pretty extreme, I'll admit. "What's this? They cracked a smile? In public? Without any sense of irony? Must be a Feeler." I am supportive whenever she defers to me, though. Not so much on the emotional side, but I like to brainstorm a range of ways to solve her problems. We both flail about a little with purely personal/emotional stuff, anyway.

    ...What's funny about your post is that we both call ourselves, "socially awkward and secretly autistic robots".
    Um, yeah.

    Oh yeah. It always ends up being something that you would've blown other stuff off to do! :steam:

    Yup. I'd say the more I know and like you the more supportive I am. However, I don't think that means my objectivity lessens. My ability to keep from voicing it does. I wouldn't voice my own opinion as it's not my life to chime in on and I like to give the people I like freedom to approach their issues in the way they see fit first. Then if the person wants my honest and objective advice I'll gladly give it.

    The less I like you or if I just don't care one way or the other? I'll just listen and maybe throw out a quick common sense fix to your dilemma. If the conversation persists I'll try to change the subject quickly or walk away.

    My experience is that ISTPs give advice support conditioned by the "stickiness" factor. If there is any hint of getting bogged down in endless discussion, short non-committal responses are the norm. If a friendship exists but ISTP doesn't agree with the friend's position, it's usually an objective response if they know the friend can handle it..otherwise fall back position is the short non-committal response or silence.

    You can tell if an ISTP is in agreement with your position and supportive because then they will swing into full problem-solving mode and become virtual Joan of Arc's to solve the problem.

    Their response is ALWAYS related to how quickly they can get into problem-solving mode. If no avenue is seen, shut down occurs and problem solving is taken within while the other person babbles on...(hence the famous ISTP empty stare)... if they haven't already found a physical escape route out of the room itself.
