    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

The attraction is pretty straightforward for me: Fours inhabit their inner world as totally and confidently as we navigate the outer one. It doesn't sound like much, but the sense of completion that can be derived from that can feel utter.
    I had this intensity issue with a 4 , too. So true.

    What I'd recommend is becoming clearer about your own needs, rather than just going from entanglement to entanglement based on what feels good to you. Know what you will and will not stand for up front and it will help you to make better decisions about who you date, and will make your relationships more successful accordingly.
    Yes. Being straight forward and up front is what 8s do best, after all.

    Great posts here. =)
