    I'd say that's a fair assessment!

    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.
    This is a relief to read (especially the part in bold) and this applies to the ISTP I'm with perfectly. With people she doesn't care as much for, but knows they're more sensitive, so she throws empty words of, "Everything will be all right", even though she doesn't mean it. This is purely towards people who moan for the saking of moaning and don't seem open to a solution to their problem. With them, she soon switches off and ignores them.

    What amazes me is how interested she seems about everything I have to say. She was so excited when she heard about my new piercing. She even named it for me.
    Um, yeah.

    Oh, you don't even have to spend a lot of money on me. If you buy me an ice cream cone and we sit down and tell funny stories, I'm just as happy as if you've taken me to an expensive restaurant.

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    She doesn't just *seem* interested. I bet she really is.

    after initial reservedness and not talking to you much they seem to be pretty blunt and seemingly unaware that it may come off as rude (because it's usually an attempt to help so why are you upset about it?). the ones I've met are very sweet besides this, but I think it can sometimes be a sugar coat to cover up their cold-blooded, grey, and clammy-skinned bodies.

    I'm aware (after many years of being this way) that I come off as rude, but I don't usually know what I've done to be rude. I don't mean to be that way. Of course over 99% of the population doesn't have the balls to say "that comment hurt my feelings"... Ergo, we don't always know what to watch out for.

    Do your part and tell the emperor he's not wearing any clothes. Preferably nicely since some of us actually have a sensitive ego.

    yeah, I'm not saying you ISTPs aren't aware, it would just seem that way to a lot of people (maybe the 99% you're referencing). The way an istp communicates can sometimes be misinterpreted as serious and biting to the sensitive, even though it's usually just a less watered down and less winded form of communication. Once someone can differentiate honest and/or helpful criticism from a jest or an insult feelings shouldn't get hurt anymore. I used to not be able to tell the difference when I was a kid and take things personally, but now I understand it and find myself doing it too. Still though, communication should generally be an equal effort for harmony and understanding for both parties (no matter what type).

    don't be so blue, who wouldn't want a candy-covered istp woman around?

    I'm actually really not like the typical ISTP when it comes to cuddly-ness. I love cuddling and PDA's (well...not making out or anything, but holding hands, small kisses, etc.) And I'm actually pretty in-touch with my emotions, but sometimes I suppose I can be insensitive. It doesn't happen often although my INFP( I THINK that's what his type is) boyfriend says that I don't get his when we're in a fight. I dunno. It's funny because he's always on about being 'logical' when I'm upset about something, then I think about it and realize that he's right and I'm not upset anymore. Then somehow, he becomes very 'illogical' and emotional and talks to me in analogies and metaphors, which I have a hard time associating with. I really think we need to continue to work on our communication skillz.

    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'm interested in your unusual perspective here. What other differences have you observed between ISTP women and INTP women? So far, this is the only thing that stands out. I.e. Ns being more impersonal/objective.
