How do you deal with strangers, then?The same goes for people. The law provides the framework for society to work with. Aside from that, as far as I'm concerned, you can consider something to be unethical and immoral, but those things are still to be negotiated between people.
No one's saying that they can't engage in their relationship the way they want to. Is it right for them to assume, however, that this makes cheating right per se? Does it give them the ability, if they divorce, to cheat on their next SO and when confronted, say "K, I'll be more mindful next time?"Example: cheating is considered immoral, not illegal. And open marriages do exist, where technically, cheating goes on, a practice that is considered immoral by many, but it's none of their business. That's between those two people.
I'm really talking more about general interpersonal conduct and not the intimate relationships between close people. Of course those are varied from couple to couple(?). The problem is that there just isn't enough time on this planet to get to know everyone that closely.That's the level I'm talking about. This is even below that still. You have to at least determine first what you want in the relationship and let your prospect partner know. I dunno about you, but when I start dating someone I state that I want an exclusive relationship with them. And he, in turn, can express the fact that he wants it to be temporary, casual or date other people as well. Same thing.
Doesn't this speak to the heart of why Fe-types think xNFPs are selfish?Edit: Sigh, I swore I wouldn't be a part of this anymore. We once again hijacked a thread for this ever lasting debate. Not that I mind the way it's going, the example that this INTJ provided of his interaction between him and his TP, has given us some serious stuff to work with, and it's getting us somewhere, but we really should stop derailing every thread into this topic people!
Close (we do have the same pattern with opposing orientations). INTJs shut themselves in. ENTPs shut various others out.You're sounding like an INTJ.
