    Thanks. I thought that it is something like you described, I just wanted to be certain.

    And yes, I think that people of any type can be likeable or non likeable, but knowing some ISTPs I realised that I have some strange thing for that type. In friendlyor any other way.
    So, maybe it's time for this INFJ to find some free male ISTP...

    Don't force things on them,treat her with respect and she'll do the same for you, if you believe she needs help tell her that you're there but don't keep going on at her. But yeah have fun go paintballing or something :-P

    apparently I'm known to be picky with my food, and eating things without actually finishing haha. Which is offensive to some people.

If he wants to open up, he does, but people pry, poke, prod and all that, he just clams up and bolts. Not really any need for it anyway, since his actions always speak very plainly and clearly as to what his thoughts are!
    Amen.

    ISTPs are some cool mofos. I like TPs in general, though. They help me to chill. Nothing's worse than being around a bunch of TJs. Somebody's gonna end up having a heart attack.

    This thread reminded me how much I tend to forget that ISTPs are still Thinkers, even despite the stereotype for SPs to be less T-driven.

    Like... I'm kinda sensitive to T-ness (like that moss that turns a certain color when water in the area is polluted), and you guys set off my T alarm way more than INTPs do lol :blushing:

    I mean, I'm sorry, but I gotta agree with some other people so far. It sounds more like you guys want drinking partners more than you want actual "friends". With my friends, I ask them how things are going and make sure everything's okay in their personal lives. And if it's not, it's my job, as a friend, to know and be there to support them.

    I mean, that's the difference between someone who's my friend and who's my acquaintance. With my friends, I actually care about what's going on with them and want to be there for them. So...

    If it's not fun to interact with someone, why bother? It's not that we have to be doing fun things all the time, well it doesn't hurt, but many people are enjoyable to just talk with, too. It helps if they can be supportive and trustworthy when needed, if I want to count them in with the friends that I trust, but the vast majority of the time I'm with them I don't want or need to be talking about emotional stuff, so the simpler things are more important. I guess I would try to be emotionally supportive if that ever came up, but my friends are mostly male, mostly thinkers and I suppose I'm not really a touchy feely-seeming person either, so I don't get many people confiding emotional things to me, even people I'm dating (most of the time). I think most people really don't have serious emotional problems that need talking out very often, anyway. Minor things are usually more easily solved by improving your mood (fun stuff) than by dwelling over it anyway.

    I really don't need or want full-on NF emotional support very often if at all, and I'm not very good at giving it either, so I tend to not be close friends with people who need that interaction. So everyone's happy.
