    Yeah, I probably wouldn't be very good at that and in fact am not. This whole making connections things.

    Wow, what a fascinating (and likely apt) observation. The crossing of boundaries by myself and others makes me panicky...

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I mean it is foreign to me. I can't remember really doing that. It seems like my conversations usually involve the transfer of information.

    When I see people relating through conversation I wonder what's happening. What are they experiencing? Why do they do it?

    I think he meant it's foreign for him

    And that's interesting....I feel my male friends DO relate to me. Maybe I am delusional, but I don't think so . I mean, it helps that these guys are NFs or SFPs & we DO have many common interests and a tendency to like to relate emotionally to people. I've even had an INTP friend relate to me (but admittedly there was a romantic vibe - still, he related! ).

    I think they are using a positive form of empathy, which allows this connection to happen.... but it is rather mystical.

    See, I actively cross boundaries because I want to know how their mechanism works and what they'll do. And I want to know if I can affect others in some way. And if I can affect them, what happens and why?

    i mean that many of us have a preference for personal conversations...dislike the formality of pleasant chit chat and skip ahead to more interesting (to us) types of personal conversations...to anyone...the old woman at the park...or kids or the new person at work...not in that...feed my ego and crave me sexually please way that you made it sound like.

    Boundaries are ultimately useless as they only exist because we allow them too... we can destroy them at any time most just choose not too, but this hinders a great deal of learning on everyones part.
