    Well, you and Heart are my kin. I am also one of the intense IPS's.

    What is your Ennagram type?

    It certainly is true that the IPS can scare people.
    I think there's room for a lot of confusion and disappointment between and IPS and a SPI. The IPS may interpret the SPI's generally accommodating behavior as a personally directed sign of interest. This interests the IPS, and so the IPS locks on in the way they typically do. Of course, the SPI is horrified and unprepared by this development, and retreats.

    Sad story.

    Yes, I think you are exactly right. It is a particularly painful and confusing crash and burn type of interaction. A big part of what led me into trying to understand myself better through MBTI.

    I come out 5 w 4 most of the time.

    Ahah! That makes sense. That really emphasizes the fascination aspect of being Intimate. It explains the desire to move-on once you have unmasked your subject..

    I made a typo I think before, I move if I can't unmask a person. I have no interest in continuing with someone who wants to present a facade to me even in one on one situations. I actually don't like this about myself, but I will find myself losing interest.

    If someone shows me their real face, I find them intensely interesting in all their various colors and shades and continue to do so. Sorry about the typo. For some reason I am leaving off words and such lately, like my mind is ready to move on before my hands.

    Is there really no one with self-preservation at the bottom?

    Probably not at this board. I think it takes a strong sense of self to be interested in MBTI. jmo.

    Well, I have at least one friend that is a SIP who really knows the MBTI and the Enneagram.
