    Both Freud and Jung thought there were masculine and feminine traits in the one psyche, be it a man or a woman, and that one is stronger or weaker depending upon the individual's sex, as a consequence the opposite sex would have an attraction consequently and permit the sort of growth the saying indicates.

    I don't like to put too much stock in orthodox psychoanalytic theory.

    And to be honest I understand the whole InTP/INFP debacle now. I'm not suggest your thoughts are invalid but you approach this from a much different angle than i think most INTPs do. I think
    Most INTPs assume that their is an underlying universal truth which can be found by stripping away personal and subject influences. You seem to believe that our personal and subject experiences are truth itself and that by stripping this away we move into a classified, codified system that is actually farther from reality which in my opinion is very "feelery".
    If I say "When I drop this rock off this building, it will hit the ground" and you're reasonable, you'll agree that it will hit the ground, right?

    But if you're smart, you might realize that I've attached a string to the rock and neglected to mention it.

    If you're clever you might realize that I'm actually going to use the string to lower the rock into a missile and launch it into space.

    If you're me you'll say "What? Why are we doing this?"

    Also I don't put much stock in height differences because we have ladders.
    And platform shoes!

    How do we deal with obesity??
    Make everyone wear a portable tent that is the size of the largest person, therefore we all appear the same!

    How do we make everyone become a chess master??
    Simple new rule - If you've won against an opponent, you automatically lose your next game with them.

    FFS. Compensated differences are not erased differences.

    Eh. I don't care enough to put in the effort. It's my opinion and I can't give specific scientific data to back it up. So if you disagree you're certainly justified in doing so.

    I believe reality is composed of both subjective and objective; the underlying truth I base my thoughts on is balance. Which doesn't have to be a feely concept. It's a concept that underlies pretty much everything in chemistry.

    It's true, I go about it in a different way than a lot of INTP's, or at least a lot of the ones on this particular forum. But I think the internal process is the same, and combines itself with other functions. In this particular thread yes, I am emphasizing feelings and personal experience, because it's relevant to the topic. Relationships and spirituality generally aren't conducive to rigorous logical analysis, or objectivism. My personal philosophy and spirituality tends to be a lot more objectively based than a lot of NF's though. It might not seem that way to a few people, if you were to objectively examine the differences they would be very significant.

    Thanks for actually providing reasoning for your NF claim. I can see how it has merit from a certain perspective.

    Ok, end of type discussion on here. Any further discussion on the subject will be moved to my other thread, or ignored, as I see fit.

    Oh ok. Will look at those. Sry.

    I agree that the idea of sexual intercourse ( two different but complimentary being coming together to create something more than themselves) is a useful analogy for the integration of all sorts of different people. But that isn't the meaning of this proverb. The proverb clearly states that there is a gender binary and distinct gender roles. If the proverb is supposed to mean something different why is it written in this specific way? I don't think it's a case of people only seeing the surface meaning, but just disagreeing with the actual meaning (which in my opinion isn't all that complex to begin with).

    Could you explain what the more complex meaning is?
    I would say that it is meant to be understood non-literally, as most things of this nature are. So people who like to take things literally and focus on gender roles associated with the binary would not find it useful. Things said in symbolic ways held a lot more significance in tribal cultures. In modern American culture at least, we either tend to say things completely literally and rationally, or are completely fluffy and sentimental. In my opinion the OP was meant to lie somewhere in the middle, if you take the culture into account. So examining it with logic and literalism alone isn't going to give you the true meaning.

    Fi. Get with authenticity. Delusion is annoying.
    Alright. I can see we're going nowhere. I have no obligation to prove myself to you, and I'm not going to bother continuing to try since you aren't interested in hearing my point of view. If it pisses you and a couple of other people off, so be it.

    It's impossible for any thinking person to do what you ask, i.e. trust that you know yourself based on your ideas.

    I can't fathom andante's patience in continuing to engage you when you are so resistant to reason. Assume it's just because she enjoys cat and mouse games.
    I didn't ask for it in this thread. It's easy, just go to my profile, click on started threads, and you'll find the relevant ones near the top. I don't want to bring feedback on my type into every discussion because that would be selfish and egocentric, and would bore everyone. But here you 2 have done it for me. And really, when I started the type threads, I did it from the point of view of telling people what my type was and why, not asking for them to tell me I'm wrong. Unless they had convincing evidence, which few people have. I've stated this I don't know how many times.

    Don't trust me based on my ideas, just trust me based on the fact that I know myself much better than any of you. You can't really believe you know the full picture of what goes on inside my head.
