    Question Do Identical Types Attract or Repel You?

    Do you tend to like your own type? Or do you tend to stay away from your type?

    I have had crushes on almost every EXFJ male I've gotten to know (one of them was A LOT older than me). It's quite embarrassing. I hope that doesn't make me look like a narcissist.

    In some sick wierd way, I have an odd fetish like attraction towards female ISTJs. But it's not as strong as the attraction I have towards INTJs.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    it greatly depends on how mature the INTP in question is, but I think that sort of applies to all types

    I like most mature, thoughtful INTP's well enough, but I wouldn't say that I tend to be either particularly attracted to or repelled by them in general. But I suspect that most people of any type would say that INTP's (and INFP's) tend to sort of blend in rather than inspire either attraction or repellation (is that a word? I'm thinking no). With the exception of the ever-unpopular immature INTP, it takes a while for us to register on folks .

    You don't want to mix two INFPs and alcohol... The resulting looniness is a serious threat to society. (I've met only one other INFP, though)

    I usually enjoy the company of fellow INTPs, we have alot in common, are more likely to share similar interests which makes conversation easier. It can be awkward though if the other person is too similar to me. Then its almost like watching a video of myself in all its embarrasing awkwardness.

    Generally repelled. But it depends on the individual and, as someone said above, how mature they are. I haven't met that many, but I have had complex feelings about them, a love/hate, attraction/annoyance sort of thing.

    The reason other INTPs sometimes annoy me is that they almost always have a pedantic urge to correct every insignificant error I make. Effective communication can become onerous if a single typographical or grammatical error can derail any argument and make you a target for personal attack.
