    The relationships (not alone, of course) indicate ENTj. Otherwise I would say ISTj.

    My analysis --

Otherwise, we seem to generally get along OK. She is very friendly but somewhat sharp with people.
    This can be seen as Resolute, Se value, Fi value.

    And they're really dirty and nasty. I mean, with like someone's old food globbed on them or something.
    This could be Ti, or at least Ti>Fi focus. It also looks like Se.

    Ok, this may be an indication of relationships but it suggests more specific issues.

    It depends on what -- critical and judgemental on Ti or Fi? Either way, I think Fe-ego types can he ruled out.

    My sister-in-law (I think INFp but I'm not sure) hates her to a huge extent. This is what she has to say about her - when her husband was in the hospital, she supposedly asked my sister-in-law (a doctor) to talk to the husband's doctors about giving him a lethal dose of morphine or something so she wouldn't have to take care of him. My sister-in-law was aghast. I was under the impression that the two of them used to get along OK but this issue has changed that.
    So it's not a question of intertype relationships as such -- it was that particular issue. It looks like a Fi vs Ti conflict. The thing is -- was her motivation for the morphine suggestion really not having to take care of him, or is that the INFp's interpretation of her motives? That's a very key issue.

    That suggests higher focus on than on . And probably not logical.

    I am absolutely sure she has never changed the wallpaper in her house, and she's lived in her house for like 60 years. It looks WWII-era and is peeling off the walls. This drives me crazy for some reason.
    She can't be bothered about Si and that bothers you. She doesn't give a shit about what others think. Much more Se than Fe.

    I think she's a sensory-subtype ESFp, the ones who are "illogical Se-ESTps".

    Expat, that is a good analysis. The wallpaper thing is definitely anti-Si.

    I think it really was because she didn't want to take care of him. I've heard from three people that she NEVER went to visit her husband in the hospital when he was dying - not even once. Who doesn't visit her dying husband in the hospital? And they'd been married since the 40s. I don't know what to think of that.
