    My experience is that I love NT's. Although I usually cannot relate in the beginning, I always end up enjoying the company of NTs. They bring out the best in me- change and growth. My favorite philosophical discussions have been with NT's.

    How did she take identity from the relationship? Was she further defining herself as she already was? In what way was the identity she drew from the relationship not the best thing?

    well if everything is...then nothing isn't...and you can't have nothing is then because everything would be...and you'd have ants running around with top hats and there's just no room for all that...is that the particular philosophy you subscribe to? or what?

    Your ifs are questionable, young lady. Why must everything be?

    Funny, "What would you like to know." is it possible to know philosophy? Is Philosophy full of facts, or more of a debate?

    I am not afraid to engage in philisophical debates with NTs, although I am at my best when the subject is in relation to people. I fully admit, I have little in depth precise knowledge when it comes to just any subject.

    I am aware that many NTs decide on "specialty" areas of interest and become very well-versed on these subjects. As far as I know this is the closest to the NF's lifelong search for identity- only for the NT the search is for knowledge, competency, and such.

    Thoughts?

    A debate over facts, perhaps? What I know about philosophy is that I have a vast library of conclusions in my head, which are by their philosophical nature, naturally subjective. So, if you want to know something as I know it, ask.

    I ain't afraid of no man.

    I'm a generalist, which in a roundabout way means I'm a specialist in philosophy, because I know a little about everything.

    I sure as hell did, but I think I'm more F than most and I identify pretty well with Enneagram 4.
