    ISTPs react badly to demands/expectations/obligations, so whether it be fair, or unfair if you are the more flexible personality, you are probably the one who can adapt so that your needs are met. I suspect that allowing yourself to be dragged into 1000 different spontaneous adventures, may be an occasion for a lot of spontaneous affection.

    I'm sure you've read about ISTPs, but here is a page I looked at, when I read your post: http://www.16personalities.com/istp-relationships-dating

    How did you end up marrying someone who you feel doesn't emotionally support you?

    Maybe all T's have a hard time supporting the Fs in their life, regardless who they are.

    My SIL T doesn't know how to be compassionately supportive of her husband either.

    He just wants sympathy, and she thinks its weak!

    I can assure you that Thinkers also think generalisations are weak.

    No problems. The people we love are always so wonderful and so frustrating.
