Do you as an INTJ have any tips for putting up with ESTJs? My mom is one and she's unbearable at times. She doesn't understand introversion or why I get annoyed that she takes 5 minutes to talk about something she could sum up in 5 seconds.

I don’t really, my neighbour’s an ESTJ and I really… I actually can’t stand him. I mean, he’s a good guy, I realise that, but even when I explain why I don’t care for going out or interacting with a lot of people, he just doesn’t get it. They’re probably too stuck in their own perception of the world and their own experiences, and they tend to lack the empathy to put themselves into the shoes of someone else.

The one thing I usually do when my own mum does that (who’s an INFP) is just tell her to get to the point. If your mum’s really a T, she won’t be too bothered by it, and will just do so. My mum doesn’t like it when I do that, I think it hurts her feelings a little, but I frankly don’t care, I don’t have time for a pointless story.

The best thing I can suggest to you is to try to explain yourself. She may not understand, but if she really loves you, and I suppose she does, it’s not often a mother doesn’t love her child, then she will accept that you are who you are, that you need a lot of space and alone-time, and that’s all there’s to it. If you don’t like something happening or being done to you, you really need to tell people, because you should assume they can’t smell how you feel, so it’s your job to say stop or go on what happens to you and with you, in as much as you can control it.

I say this now, even though I had to work very hard to assert myself in such a way, verbally, at least, but it pays off to develop that in yourself. This is not just for you as an INTJ, but for every introverted type. Assert yourself, tell people you don’t like them doing something to you when you don’t, because usually, they won’t stop on their own if it works for them.

That’s all I can say to you, really.
