    Ftr, while 4s and 8s do seem to have a hardcore attraction, I think e4 females are better-suited to LTRs with e2s and e9s.
    I was just reading and felt the need to respond to this thought.

    Eeep. At least personally I could never ever see myself with an e2 in an LTR. While a 9 with a heavy wing is more plausible, I think 6, 7 or (a very specific) 8 would be strong possibilities too. 2 and 9 tend to be more passive than I would desire in a SO. I need an equal who can speak (and receive) truth in love. I know 2's and 9's that I adore, but they generally have the tendency to appease me and hide their ill-feelings (until they erupt later). I could not live with that day-in and day-out.

    That being said, I only know one male 2 and two male 9's IRL so I'm sure there are individuals that would surprise me.

    We have stoic strength. The stereotypical strong, silent male is a (healthy) type 9. Clint Eastwood or Abraham Lincoln being good examples

    That's bullshit. I know exactly why I like things and why I don't like others. Same goes for people. And if feelings run dry then it means that they shouldn't be dating you anymore as you are not what they are looking for. I'm passionate about my relationships even when the girl is pissing me off.

    To answer the question 4s. When they're ready they will realize that Hank Rearden (Atlas Shrugged) doesn't really do it for them but John Galt does.

    5w6s work best with me since they're one of the lowest drama within relationships type.

    My ex actually told me that I was one of the most introspective individuals she ever met and that was one of the things really attracted her to me.

    7's and 8's seem to draw me but 4's and 6's are the ones I've found I'm often happiest to be around. This is very general though, and I know a few 7's or 8's on this forum and elsewhere I'd love to have my way with

    Obviously I don't know Clint Eastwood, but from the parts he plays in movies that seems to be his typecast.

    The compatibility charts that I have seen match male 8s to 2s, 4s, 6s while female 8s to 9s.

    I'm of opinion that the ideal match for 8s is type 2 because they share many qualities in common. In relationships of 8s and 4s the 4 often becomes bored of the 8's crude and simplistic gut triad expression and emotional insensitivity and starts looking for another partner, or tries to provoke the 8 to emotional displays. In relationships of 6s and 8s there is mutual us-vs-the outside world that these type share that is not very healthy, and also jealousy issues. Female 8s are matched mostly to 9s because there are very few male 2s around and 9 is able to mimic type 2 to some extent.

    The ideal partner for type 9 is type 1 according to this chart, where each type's idea is the one that adds to 10 (for example 1+9=10, 2+8=10, etc.): http://www.similarminds.com/idealtypes.html
