It's not so much smothering with charm to make them come back as it is testing them to see if they can withstand our off-kilter personalities, to find out if we can really be ourselves around them...and of course, just to see how they'll react. Curiosity about what will happen when we push the next button is usually the main motivator.
    I distrust feeling figured out because above all I feel that when someone figures me out they will have no other option but to reject or accept me. I assume a lot of the time that I will be rejected, so in a way I prefer being misunderstood. Because if I am misunderstood I am never truly rejected. Only never known.

    Also, I tend to feel that I have to earn someone's love by suffering for it. It can be a bad habit.

I've run into it more with E _ T _ types, but that may just be our combo of personalities interacting or maybe just the specific ones I have met.
    This is probably pretty typical of ETPs, but don't confuse us with ETJs. They're something different altogether. They do need a certain form of approval from the external world, but they're looking for it and evaluating it in very different terms.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Although there is a distrust, is there a craving to be known if utter acceptance is the result? Or is there preference in the unknown because of comfort?

    How would you describe that? The two types I've noticed that most with are ESTJ and ENTJ.

    I have to go. I hope you're both on later. I have more questions about what you wrote to ask you Synarch.

    Of course there is always a desire for love (acceptance). It is just difficult to believe sometimes that anyone could ever really love you. I think this is why I gravitate towards INXJ types for friends, etc. I only believe the bonds that develop over time through mutual and gradual exposure. Shedding armor and revealing one's nakedness and vulnerability over time. I do not trust or believe in that which is easily won. Even when loved consistently it takes a lot of time for it all to sink in. Patience and recognition and true appreciation.
