I prefer both NTs and NFs.
- Have you ever dated NTs (yes/no and optionally: how many)
Yes, an INTP once. It worked out in the short run, but in the long run we both decided things wouldn't work.
- Have you ever dated NFs (yes/no and optionally: how many)
Yep, just one, an ENFP. Things didn't work out towards the end. We ended up arguing constantly, and I think that perhaps I was a bit too critical towards him.
- Why do you prefer as you do?
With a preference for both, NTs counterbalance my emotional side a bit, help to rationalize what I'm feeling. They don't fuss too much if something goes wrong, they just jump right into the problem solving process. I think growing up with an NT dad, I tend to find that NTs can cool me down a bit when I get moody. They're a source of stability, a great mentor. Plus, I love how they are intelligent and I like it even better if they are involved in science. It's cute when someone is into technology and nerdy stuff. I tend to connect with them with science.
I also like NFs as well. I find them romantic, sensitive and empathetic. I tend to reveal a bit of my softer side more often with NFs. I feel I can express myself and be emotionally transparent with them. If they get too emotionally worked up, it can be stressful for me because I tend to pick up on their emotions. Despite this, I feel that I can go on with them about art and music.
Depends on what works best, to be honest.
