    I find myself most easily befriending other 5's, as well as some 4's, 9's, 7's, & 8's.
    [and whatever the hell @Zang is ]

    I couldn't say what "draws" me. It's not so much a draw. Just mutual cognitive chemistry --> interesting, entertaining, &/or enriching conversation.

    Depends: 1 (fairly polarizing, but really like some), 3 (energy is attractive, lack of interiority less so), 6 (depends, since 6s are so variable)

    Not drawn to: 9 (last thing my low-energy needs is external energy dampening), 8 (find the outward anger off-putting, although the inner-squishiness is kind of appealing), 2 (the give-to-get thing sets of my 5-ish fear of being drained, plus being indebted for something I never asked for sets my teeth on edge)

    Pretty much almost exactly what Seymour wrote, especially the bolded.

    The only thing I’d add/change:

    -being somewhat low-energy (or at least a tendency to retreat into my own head easily) is what makes 7s appealing to me. I tend to soak up and reflect back however much energy someone has, so the enthusiasm is helpful to be around. But yeah, inability to face difficulty can get old.

    -I’d change 3 to the ‘not drawn to’ category, though not confidently because I haven’t had much irl experience of them (basing 'no' on one really bad experience).

    -I don’t believe I’ve ever seen this e8 inner-squishiness of which Seymour speaks (but the outward anger is a real deterrent).

    Type 1, since they are so principled, and type 9, since they are so peaceful.

    7s, 5s, 4s, and 1s.

    i also like 9s and sometimes 3s.

    i would like to branch out into the other types. but i do love the first group. i think there is the type of learning that informs your world directly. and then there is the type of learning that helps you realize how to complete a full process. i learn so much from every type, but the first group just feels like it's easier to be on the same page.
