    Default NT's and Love Triangles

    This is me trying to figure out if the reason I have an obsession with creating love triangles, reading about love triangles etc. is just me or if it's a part of the NT way. Anyone else?

    I'm into them or obsessed with them, but I am in one right now if that counts.

    What i'm saying is that it's more of a human trait and more generally an evolutionary trait to seek out rare ressources, be excited by problem solving and the prospect of a superior reward in case of resolution/acquisition. yet different sets of social rules, human guilt (tool of social cohesion) and the human trait of danger avoidance makes the actual resolution more of a conceptual bait than a plausible reality.
    + feelings of infatuation are addictive for obvious reason from a biological anthropologist's point of view

    Which btw, of course means that if you focus on it, you give it more importance, increase the percieved reward and by making it more of a big deal, also increase cyclical obsessive thoughts of infatuation and danger avoidance, as a mistake would lead to a bigger percieved loss.
    There's also the fact that ppl in the competitive side of a love triangle (i assume u mean 1 girl 2 guys(or whatever gender you are)) (except if you're homosexual)
    Anyway, ppl on the competitive side of a love triangle just are percieved as needy or at least not in a position of strength(they don't bring percieved value, they ask for value), which just isn't attractive.

    feedback loops, ya know.

    When I say obsessive thoughs I mean 'repetitive thought patterns', not making a judgment
