    Default ISTPs - losing mojo

    Forming attachments (romantic) does this to me. I don't know why. I'm wondering if other ISTPs or SPs feel that way when in the beginning stages of attraction/courtship? I feel like my concentration is split and things I normally do easily are harder. I'm just more *aware* of my feelings, I guess and that just annoys me. Like, it's taking up valuable space.

    If this is familiar how do u handle it? If not, tell me I'm weird.

    Hm. I think I know what you're talking about, but really, I feel less aware of my feelings, and more hyper aware of what I perceive are the feelings of those around me. I've always felt like as a dominant Ti thinking, it's harder for me to spread around my mental reserves. And when I'm using (from my perspective) what is inferior Fe to assure a new attraction of my interest (this has been a learned thing... before I would leave them guessing, unintentionally), it just #@!$i$& confuses me and leaves me so spread thin I don't know what's up and what's down.

    As for a solution to the craziness--which I'm also experiencing now--, I have no clue. So far time and space is the only thing that makes me feel like myself again. I realize there's a fine line there, if you're trying to actually encourage the courtship. But at the same time, if you can get enough of that space, it helps you re-calibrate and act more like yourself. And there's no point in encouraging a courtship if you're not acting like yourself.

    Then again, that's all just in my experience.
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Hormones truly do distort brain chemistry. I hate it. Makes me vulnerable.
    Luckily, it never works out so I can go on about my business.

    And to answer your final question: You're an ISTP. That makes you weird by default.

    @StephMC I actually like this person. Yes. I would want to encourage things. *hyperventilates* lol. Seriously, I've always not given a crap about how someone views me and now I think Fe is giving me all this info and I sort of care how this person views me. It's making me self-conscious and therefore losing my mojo.

    Little back story: this person I guess liked me for a while and I didn't know. I really didn't entertain him. But then he sort of surprised me with who he is and I'm like, "Wow. This person is awesome" and I don't like being taken off guard. I may have been too dismissive with him at first and now the tables may have turned.

    In what way? You feel like he may suddenly be dismissing you now, or you're just feeling a little out of your element because you have a thing for him?

    I thought exactly the same thing when I read it.

    Everything is sexually-oriented with us SP's.
