    Clearly you are not involved in this discussion because you actually want to learn about the concept. Now I regret trying to answer your questions.

    I hope we are friends and that we communicate from here on out with respect and mutual understanding.

    A function of creativity is the thoughtful exploration of seemingly unrelated connections. Bridging less-than-visible points towards the creation of a tangible panorama.

    So maybe the connection is the same for all temperments but the NT (who is unable to convey their emotions into adequate words) would describe it as a mindmate whereas the NF would describe it as a soulmate?

    That's as near as I can figure it, but since I don't believe in soulmates, how can I buy into something that is essentially the same thing?

    I would be hesitant about making statements like that, because it implies that there's something internal and constant in NTs that prevents them from expressing their feelings. It might be the case that it doesn't come natural to some people to express themselves in words, but it's something you can develop if you practice learning to identify what you're going through, have the guts to communicate it, and learn the right words to convey your feelings so the other person is receptive.

    I think that they all fill the same type of needs in each temperament. While mindmates and soulmates can appear similiar, it seems that they may focus on different aspects of the relationship. While I think that there is a very thin line between these two, they can be distinguishable in certain dynamic relationships. I get the impression that soulmates is more of an all-encompassing thing, fulfilling each area of a persons life, including emotional health and nurturing. Mindmates can be more centralized around each other's psyche. Just because you're comparing apples to apples doesn't always make them interchangeable, imho.

    I don't think we're too quick to compare a mindmate to a playmate or a helpmate, because the needs met there are a bit more distinguishable.

    But don't all NT's have weak (tertiary or inferior) feeling functions? I would think that it wouldn't come natural for most NT's to express their feelings or even be distrustful of them. Of course, with work, someone could develop it. That is why the term mindmate might click with an NT because of the time they spend in their own minds.

    Right. My point was that even if it doesn't come naturally (meaning, it's not already there), it's not something you're stuck with. It's one of the problems I see in MBTI: people thinking that their type excuses them or makes it impossible for them to develop the weak parts of their personality. No such thing, it's just harder.

    Agree completely. But if you were to try to express something as vague as connection to a group of people you would use the language they are strongest in. That is why I am thinking that maybe mindmate wasn't intended to define something different but rather define the same thing differently for different people.
