It turns out that istp's aren't the only ones who are afraid of intimacy. Enfp's are terrified of it.
I just discovered this about myself. wtf? I finally caught my mouse (istp) and I don't know what to do with him now that I have him. I think it's something to do with the fact that we are so open with everyone. We have to keep a part of ourselves private. Maybe that is the reason we chase istp's? They wont demand intimacy from us. Or maybe he will now that he knows he loves me and all. ARGHHHHH! WTF? That is a strange turn up for the books. I never thought I'd be scared of something like that. Never in a million years.
