> I don't know how to answer your question about compromise in this area. You cannot force her or any person to remember something that their minds do not want to remember. Perhaps you should just accept that not everybody remember details as well as you do.

[Interesting. I have a belief that we all remember everything we directly experience, at least at a physiological level, but that we for whatever reason vary in our ability to access those memories. This belief may be inaccurate; however, as it serves me well in my personal manifestation of memory I don't intend to change it, at least with regard to myself. It may be worthwhile to consider changing it with regard to others.]

> What is significant for you may not be significant to your INTP (and vice versa). Perhaps you may want to share with her the things that are important to you (like promptness etc) and ask her what are important to her.

[Well, she is reading this and we have discussed these topics at some length; I am just looking for outside perspectives so as to have more data, which will hopefully improve our behavioral flexibility and understanding within our relationship. Thanks for all your input!]
