typical intj/intp interaction?
intj: do you have problems sleeping?
intp: yeah, most likely exacerbated by my irregular sleep (caused by irregular work hrs)
intj: sorry to hear that, sounds rough
intp: no big deal
intp: i can fix it
intp: just will take some dedication and different life circumstances.
I (INTp) had this conversation with the supposed INTj. it is rather obvious to me that i have a real problem regulating my sleep, but i do not wish to act as if it's a problem. i hate when people announce how much i've worked or how little they assume i've slept. does this sound like role function? on a slightly different note, i also hate when someone asks me if i've lost weight (regardless of whether i have or not). my most frequent response has always been to quickly / humorously deny the possibility or say i have no idea because i never weigh myself, don't own mirror, etc. key is to get off the topic as quickly as possible without showing my discomfort.
