    Default Testing T -ness

    NT's

    If you were madly in love with someone, but also knew that there was no longevity in the relationship (for whatever the reason) would you keep going out with them or dump them?

    Why not keep them as long as it makes sense, then dump them?

    (I've learned that just because things can't last forever doesn't mean I can't enjoy them now... although that's not my instinctive approach.)

    I accidentally posted in the other thread about F-ness.
    Anyways I said I would dump them so my future self wouldn't have to worry about it. Regrets suck...

    from what I can see NT's don't they dump - which is what I'm trying to measure...

    Even at a young age NT's put their head before their hearts from what I've seen of them...

    I don't dissagree with the make hay while the sun shines, but I'm not sure if I would ever do it myself

    Your intenral voice is saying they are not for you long term, or they are moving away or you are moving away, or the 300+ other reasons there is no longevity...

    At some point in a relationship unless you commit you mak the decision that person is not for you (or they do), it doens't mean you dislike them or anything just not for you

    well, like I said, my INSTINCTIVE response is to dump.
    Why invest in something doomed to fail? It doesn't make sense to me.

    The point I raised here is something I learned within the last two years of my life, though, and I'm forty now. ... and I thought it worth mentioning just to challenge the question.

    LOL - my point exactly - theoretically one ought to stay so long as it makes you happy - in practice I think NT's think ... this is gonna hurt... and scarper...

    I don't dissagree with your point at all - I think NT's however give themselves a hard time about future more so than other combos.... conceptually they may chill out but in reality do they do it? Perhaps NT's are more fatalistic than other combos I don't know... But many seem to idealise love to an extent, almost making it into a shrine (although that is probably harsh)...
