    I think he was replying to me about how I've reduced the amount of times I go out to once or twice per week and even though he's an introvert, he goes out more than that.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Oh ok thanks because I wasn't sure what I'd said that made him respond like that. Thanks.

    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.

    No problem...you see my name fits...I was lost for a bit...but
    I'm back!

    NOW....another ENFJ question please...how many of you just have a feeling you're right about something or someone but work hard to prove yourself wrong when it happens that you're right about something that's not very nice.

    example: You have a feeling about a situation or a person (and it's not good)and you're not sure why..you don't want to be right about it so you look for all the signs you can that you are actually wrong (even when you KNOW you're not)

    did that make ANY kind of sense?

    Well I llke to think that I have really good intuition so I always fallow my gut feeling (which tends to right most of the time). If I know that a person is not "good" I wouldn't try to disprove it because that would mean that I am trying to scape the reality of the matter and I would be lying to myself. On the contrary I would try to find out why I am feeling that this person is making me feel that way about them.

    I've had brief but intense physical reactions (my stomach will twist into knots) to people that I absolutely knew I wasn't going to get along with. Those only happen about once a year, but I trust those completely. I also have dreams about people that I think show me aspects of their personality that I should avoid. This past May I had a dream about my boss freaking out on me two nights in a row and then it happened the last week of the month. Coincidence? I don't know but I tend to go with those also.

    Then sometimes I'll just get this little weak feeling that I'm not going to like someone and I try to ignore those because those tend to be for things like they make a comment that I don't like or do something to someone that I find questionable. I try to let of enough of those instances accumulate before I believe them.

    I agree, even though im "I"NFJ, the same holds true for myself. I'm always more inclined to talk to and ask about how other people are holding up rather than myself.

    ^Yeah, I think the two types are very closely related (I have an INFJ brother, and we are eerily similar, so I can attest to this).
