This is a discussion on I like to give advice, but now I could use advice. within the ISTP Forum - The Mechanics forums, part of the SP's Temperament Forum- The Creators category; Originally Posted by n2freedom Yes, indeed it is. She is a rare Enneatype for ENFP and you're less common Enneatype ...
Holy... I'm INFP and I recognize every problem mentioned here -- from the being overwhelmed and wanting to run, the preoccupation and despair about the future, to filling in his blanks with the wildest paranoid conclusions, having complete trust and dealing with anxiety... this could be me and my ISTP. Except for the E/I thing where she wants him to socialize more, that one's switched between us and I'm the one he kind of has to drag out to meet people.
So thank you from an INFP... I kinda wish my ISTP was trying to get to the bottom of things the way MXZCCT and Dusty are doing, or if he is Ti-ing it, I wish mine could share it with me somehow. But he hates discussing this sort of stuff...
Matter of fact, this relationship with my ENFP would be much easier if I could keep my mouth shut. I've said many things that I DEEPLY regret saying. I'll never live it down, and I know there is nothing to take the effect of those words back. Even if, in my viewpoint, the justification behind the words were correct, I shouldnt have said them in the tone of voice or how I said them, or the choice of words I've used to describe whatever it is im trying to get across.
As an ISTP 8w9, I SUCK with words.
A few weeks back mine told me my top was disgusting. He was telling a friend about it later and said it was like something a trucker would wear. I thought that was funny. What he should have said was that the shape was all gone out of my top and it made me look like a trucker. Saying it was disgusting was a bad choice of words. He agreed with me later. He's learning.
