    Maybe she was a different enneatype and/or ISFp in socionics? I think the social 9's and the SEI's may better fit this description.

    I think she was an Enneagram 6. Phobic variety. SP probably.

    INTP stands for Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving. This personality type is known for being intellectual, abstract, logical, reserved, detached, random and skeptical. Such people are usually unconventional and highly theoretical, they like playing with ideas and coming up with ingenious thought systems and explanations for the events they observe, although they aren't too likely to share their discoveries, as they're quite socially withdrawn and secretive. INTPs are also objective, spontaneous, adaptable and highly independent; they often question authority, openly disregard social conventions and irrational customs and prefer to think for themselves, which can lead to an original, avant-garde vision of things, but also to being perceived as arrogant, cold and eccentric.

    Most of this fits except for openly disregarding social conventions/irrational customs. I do this more silently and passively. My Fe wants the social harmony, I guess.

    I'm not sure about others perceiving me as arrogant, cold, and eccentric either. I see myself as more humble and doubting. I'm rather quiet and reserved but that's different than being cold. I guess some could see me as cold because of the intense focus on logic but deep down I'm a warm person. Regarding eccentricity- I wouldn't say I'm all that eccentric- I'm more simply absent-minded or lost in thought much of the time.

    *runs to look at dictionary* Would you say that "decisive" is a word that would describe you (it was used in the description)? I wonder if some people perceive decisiveness as domineering? Or perhaps it comes back to that dictionary definition and some people are more literal than others? The author of the descriptions might unconsciously inject some personal bias into them, including word choice.

    I was actually talking to someone else on the forum about this. More specifically, how

    - ESTJ descriptions lean on the side of describing ESTJ 8s
    - Fi/Ti usually sees Fe/Te as wayyy too pushy for their taste

    So that may be where the bias comes from. First assumption makes a bit of sense because IIRC, 8 is a more common enneatype for ESTJs than 1 is.

    Speaking only for myself; I don't think of an introvert as needing to recharge due to being psychologically drained but rather requiring a level of inactivity to discharge some of the excess energy (environmental stimuli) & process sensory overload which caused the mental fatigue.
    Since extroverts gain energy from interacting with others, it's a reasonable assumption that their neurotransmitters aren't as active or finely tuned as those of introverts & maybe that's a contributing reason why extroverts don't suffer mental fatigue or sensory overstimulation as some introverts experience.

    I find that I need a few drinks to dull my mind during extended socializing or else sensory intake overload (over stimulation) builds to the point that I feel myself becoming noticeably agitated.
    Just a thought; maybe your getting pissed off isn't necessarily due to the individual in your space but rather a result of feeling overloaded.

    Maybe assertive would be a better term.
