    Default INTJs...Protective of Personal Space

    To the INTJs here, how protective of your personal spaces (i.e. your house) are you? How important/close would a person need to be in order to be invited/given the ok to help organize/rearrange say your kitchen or living room?

    I am extremely protective of personal space. Such help would be accepted only from someone who rightly shares that space, like a SO or roommate. Otherwise the only "help" accepted would be manual labor: moving items too large/heavy for one person, carrying and sorting at my direction, cleaning, etc.
    Our friendship would profit us both alike. Much we could still accomplish together, to heal the disorders of the world. Let us understand one another, and dismiss from thought these lesser folk.

    The memories.
    It depends on how you perceive the other person.
    If you can share almost any of your thoughts and emotions with someone, you're likely to let them in physically too.
    I have an older sister of mine who can have the keys of my home and let her organize my space for I know she's trustworthy, structured, helps people without any subtle motives, and yeah, she loves me.
    I have another sister, the elder, who, even today, can just dream of having access to any space, nor information about me. She's needy, nosy,helplessly manipulative and when I was busy, she would try her chances and violate my privacy and Me time with a suffocating demeanor, which is the worst thing you can do to an INTJ, only to be mercilessly cut off with style.
    Whenever we feel there is an attempt to recklessly invade our personal space, there will be consequences.

    I entrusted someone to clean my apartment once, never again, the horror, I was so stressed that day, when I got back my worst fears were realised. I would never allow someone else to clean my place unless they understand exactly what goes where. I only invited a neighbour to enter my place once after a couple of years. I guess I'm mostly keeping to myself. e5 stuff.

    I broke up with her over that, I just couldn't deal with the chaos they created by shoving everything together in a box, it might have seemed chaotic to them, but to me I at least knew where to get what, and now I don't know where anything is. If there was 20 tiny screws all thrown into a box with other stuff that have their own set of screws... the I just can't imagine.

    People take the term organized in an aeshetic manner. They don't know that there exists order and an organized structure even inside an entropy and a seemingly chaotic perception.

    They never would be given the invite because I excel at organization. That's not a boast, I could do it professionally.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    My oldest friend is an INTJ; when we were kids, We'd help each other build booby traps for guarding our spaces; as adults; his house is set up like Tom Jayne's apartment in the Punisher no matter where he is in in his house, he's within arms reach of some means of home defense... It is quite literally a thing of beauty...
    With all Due Respect,

    This is too funny! The INTJ I'm seeing is the same way. His thing is fire arms. He collects them. I've never seen one unless he's brought it out to show me, but I know they are there. Safely hidden, but always within easy reach.
