    No, neither of us do.

    I was going to say that my dad is an INTP and his brother is the ISTP and they get along quite fine... they hang out together all of the time... they just don't tend to talk much while doing so

    No! You're probably just a little more balanced than I am, doesn't mean you're an F. I suppose you could try. Ultimately he's going to have to be open to it. Although I wouldn't know how. I find it hard to connect to people in general.

    But don't be surprised if he finds your efforts to connect or forge some kind of a friendship to be a little surprising and bizarre. Your best avenue towards this will be through shared activities. Find out what you both like and talk about it/do them together.

    Yeah, I don't think he enjoys discussing existentialism. I don't think I like basketball much.

    But I'll find something...thanks.

    With ITP/ITP pairings, if you don't have common interests, neither will see the point in interacting with one another and it simply becomes a peaceful cohabitation.

    Bossy, eh? Hmm... that does sound more J, but maybe he's just going through a rough patch of his own.

    Is this someone you're dating?
    These 2 describe me pretty good. I can get along with pretty much anyone. I connect with almost no one though.

    Due to my "living in the moment" I am really hard to connect with past the current moment. I have no clue why.
    Im out, its been fun

    Cool, what do you talk about with the INTP?



    No, I'm staying at his house so he feels responsible and all that. Plus, he's 40 something, and I'm only 18.



    Lol. Wait, we're talking about a young dude and a middle age (who's also a dude!!) dating? Hmm..well who knows, highly unlikely but could be a logical conclusion.

    Yeah, just messing with you. No, He's old enough to be my dad.



    Nay, I'm just staying at his house for a while.
    Woops!! My bad, dude. Haha.

    I've known a couple of INTP's. We don't talk about ideas and the like, however we make a lot of jokes together and in general just have fun in one another's company. We sit around and watch tv, lazily together or go for coffee and enjoy people watching. He's quite adventurous too, and since I'm a female and an ISFP, I think he likes to confide in me to talk out his emotions or experiences with other females.

    I would have thought that ISTJ would be the hardest to get along with... but me and him have been friends for years. I suppose the SJ combo makes him feel obligated, that as a duty he should give in to being emotionally on my level when necessary and he's just in general a funny guy. And plus, I was there for him during his intense breakup with a girl he dated for four years.

    Ah ha... so this is a normal ISTP phenomena, eh.

    +1

    It's rare for me to find someone I really connect with. Forced "connecting" isn't really my cup of tea, but peaceful coexistance I can do, perhaps even with some small talk if I'm feeling generous .
