    Who knows?

    Probably has little to do with MBTI.

    maybe not, but in the past i can chalk up almost all of our weird contact misunderstandings to Fi Fe gaps. it seemed worth asking.

    Without further context, it's really hard to narrow down the countless possibilities.

    Maybe he's just going through some "stuff"?

    Can you provide any details? It's hard to say without knowing anything about what was said.

    Sometimes I'm more social than other times, too. When I have a lot on my plate, the social stuff gets put on the backburner until I feel like I can handle everything again.

    that's just the thing though, i don't know the details either.

    macguffin may be entirely right that there may be no MBTI correlation whatsoever, but i don't really have anywhere else to turn with this question. it's kind of a last-ditch attempt.

    thanks for your interest

    Could be he's really upset about something? It may or not be you? TBH, in my personal experiences, if I quit talking to someone that I'd been conversing with regularly without explanation, they probably said something to upset me and I'm trying to make sense of it or I've just shut down on them.

    Again, hard to be sure still.

    Ignore him until he contacts you. You'll get his attention when he does. Then tell him what you told us here.

    i guess my question is just what would suddenly precipitate a Fe dom to, without warning or notice, essentially cut off contact with you?

    If you can't think of any weirdness that happened between you, it's probably not you at all. Maybe something happened at the conference that's weirding him out, or maybe he's dealing with something else entirely. Maybe give him a few days and see if he's back to normal.

    thank you iwakar, that's helpful

    what i'm afraid of, too. i don't want there to be bad blood between us. i think he's awesome.

    hm, okay. my first inclination is to reach out, though admittedly that usually ends up exploding in my face when i try it. i just have a very hard time dealing with myself when i know that someone i really like might be unhappy with me.

    need... to... fix... *twitch*
