    Do you hate people being in your room or using your things?

    I don't know if this is an INTJ trait or not, but anytime someone uses one of my things (laptop, notebook, pencil, etc.) or goes into my room, I feel extremely uncomfortable. It feels like an invasion, and I hate it. How about you guys?

    I actually don't mind as long as they clean up after themselves and don't use too much of my stuff :)

    Same. I feel constantly 'on guard' even if they are people i know well and trust. It's lessened if i've allowed them to, but i still can't relax.

    Sounds kinda like an ISTJ trait TBH.

    I readily lend things like pens, but I'm uncomfortable letting people borrow my phone or laptop. And I very rarely let people in my dorm room. After they leave, it takes a while before I get a sense of complete privacy from that place again.

    It does sound like it applies to ISTJ. I'd imagine one thinking along the lines of, "People touched this personal article, I hope it wasn't disarranged somehow."

    An INTJ would probably think, "People touched this personal article..." and ponder on the reality of having "personal" articles that people outside can possibly mess around with (some Ni thing going on there).

    I really hate people borrowing without my knowledge or consent, then not giving it back. It's theft but the kind of theft that everyone else is aware of eg someone lending your stuff out.

    My laptop is personal. I'd feel violated if someone used it without asking.

    I don't mind it if they are invited in and I offer the stuff. But if they presume and use my stuff without permission I will tear them a new one. Luckily I'm so anti-social most average people never bother with me.

    I don't like it. I think this is probably an introverted issue more so than an INTJ issue specifically.

    For me, I'm usually concerned they will take some impression or feel about me that I didn't give them of my own accord.

    It depends on whether i feel something is fairly personal or not. I very willingly share other things like my cutlery, some food items, sitting spaces outside my room, but some other articles (like my computer, some other personal effects and my favourite mug) i'm very protective over.

    It all depends on the item. My laptop is private, so I don't like people using it (and I keep it locked whenever I am away from it). But if we're talking about something like my shelf of reference manuals at work, they are fair game and I don't care if people borrow them (as long as they are eventually returned). There are only a few things that I really see as personal items.

    Now, my home is another story. Having peopole here definitely feels like an invasion, like my home isn't "mine" anymore. Currently nearing the end of a three-day invasion, and I'm counting down the hours until I can reclaim my space tonight. Living with someone is my idea of hell.
