    Default NF and NT... drawn together like moth to flame

    I read that somewhere before.

    What is it that brings them together? Besides the obvious "N".

    Anything I could offer would be a description of N... but okay.

    We're both attracted to patterns, and the reason that we tend to come together is because we tend to provide the material the other needs. We need NT's to create systems for dealing with patterns, so that we can apply those systems in ways that help us describe and come to terms with our feelings. In turn, once we've applied those systems to that end successfully, we can use them to help the NT's get in touch with their emotions in a way that isn't as repugnant to them as what's typically offered by Sensors. Then they can refine the system even more, and give it back to us, in a cycle of refining and reapplying.

    That's my guess, anyway.

    I think it might have something to do with how the N works within each and the need to follow it.

    an NF goes by their intuition, but often doesn't know how to make a plan to go about manifesting them, so the NT can add the logic and realism into the equation.

    on the other hand, an NT gets those intuitions, but sits there trying to justify why they "feel" the way they do. The NF can help them piece together their "feelings" enough to give them reason and inspire them with a more abstract sense to just go for it.

    EDIT: soo..I posted about the same time as Athenian, saying it seems, something very similar.. but I'm just going to leave it as further thought.

    NFs can understand NT's thoughts, and they think about similar things. They both have an intense drive for self-improvement. NTs can sort and mold the NF's ideas into something coherent (thank god) and NF can lavishly praise the NT, which the NT, suffering from low self-esteem and persistent self-doubt, eats up like Ivy's sandwiches.

    this is what an ENFJ said to me earlier today...............



    Her: all i wanted to say was i think ur cute and i liked what i know so far of ur personality, i think i have some things in common with u and i made it clear to u that i was interested in getting to know u better

    Me: hmm jus out of curiousity what things do u think we have in common?

    Her: honestly im not gonna answer that because i know inside (I swear), I pick up on things quick.





    It's not the first time with an NF. There seems to just be an almost immediate connection.

    Hard to describe. Kind of like "hey, youre like me, arent you...thats weird, i thought i was alone here"

    My wife is an ENFJ.

    She is able to analyze emotions and empathize much more efficiently than I can.

    Conversely, I provide the esoteric systems appreciation that she (sometimes) lacks.

    I'm attracted to NTs for their ability to cut through haze, their informed constructive objectivity and their nearly bullet-proof humor.

    I can only speak from personal experience on why NTs like NFs. I've been told they like the "heat" (I always get images of turtles sunning pleasantly on rocks... lol). They like the emotional support. They like the sensation of empathic connection.

    NFs make me feel like a human being.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
