    I'm neither an ENTP nor am I in a relationship with one, but I'd enjoy my marriage a lot less without debate. I don't enjoy arguing about ourselves but I do enjoy arguing about some topic or another, and even if it gets a little heated. IME this kind of verbal sparring is a good way to remind each other that you're safe together, and you will always pull back before actual harm is done.

    (On the back end, were I dating, it could also be a way to identify jackasses for dumping--those with whom I don't feel safe or assured that he'd pull back before he did harm go in the seconds pile.)

    I don't think i cold have an SO and not debate with them or atleast discuss cause if they refuse to get in to a debate then i get bored and just fuck off.

    It is also a good way to build ardor.

    So, the real question here is why does comfortable conflict encourage desire?

    Maybe because a lot of the physiological responses that come up during a conflict are similar to the ones that come up during arousal. Or maybe because it's called intercourse and that's a naughty word.

    ^^I think this has a lot to do with it. When you have an SO, you know that you have guaranteed sex.

    Challenges make the prize that much sweeter and much less routine. It keeps you on top of your game.

    Ah, interesting. Well, when we are stirred to anger, we are indeed aroused in some fashion. Anger is the emotion closest to sexual arousal in similarity, perhaps. What other emotions are so invigorating and bodily?
