What I'm asking is what does the INTP DO to create an emotional safe space for their partner to deepen the relationship? That's why I have INTPs as friends. I don't mind talking about the ideas and thoughts, etc., but what of the rest? All I hear about is the INTP (like everyone else ) needs to have one opened for themselves. This is the major problem with ENFJ/INTP relationships...you have one partner who it's nearly their reason for being to do this kind of thing and another partner who is basically clueless of how to do this. It's unequal, it's teacher/student. Maybe one day the student will master their lessons but what happens in the mean time?
From my own experience and what I can tell from others, the INTP just takes the risk on, a leap of faith that the other person and relationship is worth it.
So if they aren't taking that with you, then I wouldn't expect much from them. You can't help them along much, they'll react against it and withdraw.
I've never dated a male ENFJ, so I have no idea how INTP/ENFJ would play out in a relationship. I do have several female ENFJ friends, and as far as I can tell, I'm the one they call when they do need to vent without being judged.
Hmmmm I'd want him all...mind and soul. Maybe this is what Pink is talking about when she says she wants to eat....
precisely... i'm taking you in pieces whether you like it or not, knowing full well that it's happening to me too... i've experienced this with an entp and istp, but have not had that "trading power like slaves" moment with an intp, though i know it could happen... it's a creative and conservational annihilation, an inevitability, a merging against all means to stop or direct it...
I don't know MacGuffin...hmmmm so much in my head about this...prob doesn't really need to be voiced. Thanks for the explanation.
