    In most cases that someone could advance on me, I've already observed everyone. So I have information to go on to know if I'm interested. I'm very happy if someone I'm interested in advances, but if it's someone I'm not interested in, I sort of sigh in my mind and check a clock.

    However, when someone unfamiliar to me advances, that's already unnerving (I am polite but very distant toward strangers). I don't like being taken aside by people I haven't examined. Once that's happened though, I do try to assess them as fast as I can, and things basically go up or down from there. The less intrigue or endearment that is accomplished in a given amount of time, the more I ask myself "how do I get out of this?". A stranger also has to go much slower than someone I'm already interested in, because I'm still bunkered in and trying to scope them out.

    So a stranger still has better chances than someone I've observered and written off, but they have a tough task, I tell you...

    Does it? It certainly doesn't seem to be how everyone approaches the situation. I feel like most males are far more outwardly aggressive than me.

    The first version of that song I heard was the Annie Lenox cover from Medusa, that's the one I always think of.

    I LOVE her version. That's why it has "boy" instead of the Bob Marley "girl"...

    Yes most males are more aggressive than the INTP's I know. The INTP's I know except for one have all have gone for more aggressive type woman... Only one INTP of my acquaintance made the first move...they've been married for 21 years. I suppose I'll never have an INTP because I am not an aggressive woman...I'll let you know you have a chance but...step up to the plate..be a man and make a move. ha! You don't have to be the typical aggressive male but you do have to let the woman know you're interested.

    ...but they some of them are so worth going after (even if they are babies ). As long as they reciprocate interest, and don't just leave me to chase them, I wouldn't have much of an issue being forward. But I've been called aggressive by more than one person.

    I wasn't sure if you were just changing it for yourself, given your gender.

    YEAH Hitchhikers Guide..umm oh yeah well that's about how it goes with you INTP's. ISTP's are much bolder...if they want you they want you and you know. INTPs might want you and you'll never know unless you ask.

    If people are into the whole FJ/TP match, I think IxFJs are much better with INTPs. They're more patient and probably more comfortable with the pace of the relationship.

    ISTPs don't jump at loud noises so they're cool.

    ExTPs get a thumbs up as long as there's indemnity insurance on all valuables and breakable items.
    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 find that I'm the only one ENFJs feel completely comfortable around to open up to. I had this ENFJ girl in my engineering lab who we'd work on problems together. I didn't know her that well, but one day halfway through the lab she just broke down about issues with her boyfriend. I'm not exactly sure why she felt more comfortable with me than most people. Maybe because I said some some really off the wall jokes and trusted her to get them.

    Anyway she just trusted me. I'm not the type of person to betray peoples trust. I also don't run away from people if they get emotional as long as they don't take they're problems out on me. That's where I've drawn the line.

    I love you to pieces, Jock, me lad, but this statement really frustrates me. That's been my experience with INTPs and for a while it lead me to believe that they were completely incapable of being selective or self-determining. They just took what they were handed and called it "being in love", even when the match was clearly bad or destructive.

    I had several throw-downs with my ex about it. I told him if I'd never asked him out, he'd still be with whoever approached him first, something that really bothered me.

    Can you explain why this is? I swear I'm not being a jerk. I really want to know.

    Also, your robot noggin is very smooth and shiny. Carnuba wax?
