    Default Testing F -ness

    This is for NF's - thought police won't move it back.

    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?

    I'm not sure how this is going to test Tness and Fness...by seeing if Fs will stay with someone that has no future, while Ts will dump? Are you trying to measure compassion or something? I don't think that's a characteristic of T and F.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I would dump them. It wouldn't be an easy decision, though. But I see it as wasting time. My time, their time. Wasting energy on something that has no future would be meaningless and I can't stand being involved in something that has no meaning for me.

    It depends on the circumstances and the reasons why I wouldn't believe that the relationship will last.
    I mean, if the reason is the other party's lack of feelings for me and no chance of ever having those feelings, there is no point in holding on to it. It's like quickly ripping off a bandaid, it will sting at first but it would hurt much more when you slowly try to remove it i.e. keep lingering on the relationship even though it would seem to be fulfilling at first. That way I'd only be deluding myself and thus, wasting precious time when I could actually be in a relationship that has longevity.

    In that case I would definitely keep on to that relationship. No doubt about that.

    I'd be more interested in seeing the difference between T vs. F balanced against S vs. N.

    (i.e., would the concrete tangibility of S have any impact vs the big picture sense of N?)
