    Hmm good question. I have no idea. Perhaps simultaneously? Lol, I really do hate how it's portrayed in movies. Subtract all the goony goo goo stuff & it's just two people connecting on a deeper level. I haven't experienced this type of connection much though.

    Interesting. So as an NT, do you believe in a mindmate?

    (Edit: Ref the bits about the use of the term 'soulmate')
    Mmm so I'm not alone in not liking that word, but let's try not to reduce this argument to semantics. 'Soulmate', as a word, has rather unfortunate associations.
    Did you mean something like a 'kindred spirit' (like in Anne of Green Gables)?
    If so, there is a lot of material around about NT-NF compatibility (which I usually interpret as potential, rather than destiny). Yeah.

    (and aren't we all off our oscillatory rockers to varying degrees of displacement )

    NT Conceptualist to NF Idealist
    Marriage to an Idealist is probably the best option for a Conceptualist. NTs and NFs share an abiding interest in the abstract, internal world, and so can find with each other a companionship of ideas, a mutual love of insights and concepts, even a similar fluency for the abstract language, that bonds them securely. At the same time, NFs bring a personal warmth to their relationships which appeals to the analytical, self controlled NTs, and helps them put aside their work and take time for a personal life.

    Conflicts, of course, are inherent in all relationships, and even so with the NT-NF relationship. If sharing ideas with an NT means arguing over definitions, logical categories, and necessary consequences, it is onerous to NFs, who are willing to engage in such debates for a short period of time, and only if the discussion remains friendly. And conflict between the NTs cool resistance to showing emotion and the NFs desire for emotional expressiveness is an endless problem in their relationships, though one that usually overshadowed by these two temperaments' rare compatibality.

    i think it's just a more romanticized way of looking at it...for a spiritual person, it's lovely to think that you found the person you were meant to find...having the life you were meant to have...it's the idealist nature to feel that way, i believe...but that doesn't mean they think it has to be effortless...not at all.

    i don't believe in "soul mate" in the traditional sense but i think certain people come into your life for a reason.

    What a joke. All this does is to show weakness in a different way.
    In this life you can be either demanding, or selective.

    Demanding on yourself and your significant other. Demanding to make a fake relationship work.

    It's like making a square peg fit into a round hole. You're going to have to carve your peg. Or your hole.
    Don't get carried away with the metaphor.

    This never, or at best rarely works, because people are weak and they always run out of energy.

    Being selective, on the other hand, requires just as much hard work during the screening process, only that it's easier to maintain your fervor because there's always the constant reminder of loneliness to kick you in the ass.

    But soul mates... yeah soul mates are a joke of an idea too.

    It's a well known fact that the INFJ's ate their souls.
    And developed symptoms of acute food poisoning right after.
