You may be right. This is not an exact science. I'll give it another look.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Am I a post-whore? I guess I am sometimes. But that's probably because I scrutinize myself (without people knowing it or noticing it) a lot. Except now that I say that I do.
But actually, the percentage of post-whores on this place is very low compared to other forums i've visited. Even if this forum wasn't about personality-types and psychology etc, i'd still LOVE to hang out here. It's just so diverse and fun... And after a while you almost get to know you guys, and now I seriously doubt i'd want to be without MBTIc any year soon.

Oh dear. ProteanMix is going to be unhappy about how the thread has gone.
I have to admit I'm not really sure if we're helping her accomplish what she was trying to accomplish.

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.
