    I personally can't stand love (the teenage passion kind, I mean). It's an annoying flurry of chemicals through your system that tells you that you want to be with a person. It's an enjoyable feeling, alright, but it makes you do many rash things. I want to date and marry a girl who will be a good partner for me, not someone I have a teenage passion for: teenage passions wear off. Really loving someone is a choice, and is something that must be worked on so that it doesn't fall apart. Bottling it in and ignoring it also sucks, which is annoying because that's generally what I do.

    I always thought love and passion are different things.
    Passion: Fi reigns.
    Love: Ti and Fi agree and strenghten each other

    The flurry of chemicals has been perfected by evolution for millions of years. It is bound to get you to the person best suited to propagate your genes. Of course, "being good for gene multiplying" is not the same as "being good for you". That's where logic and a healthy mind can help.

    Hmm. I've never thought as passion as being the child of Fi. Kind of interesting. So, passion in regards to a person might be Fi/Fe? And passion in regard to a thought Fi/Ti?

    Is love expressed as some form of Fe? Perhaps love is the ultimate caring mortar that binds us together in some way, an F concern. After all, it is our feeling that is more likely concerned with matters of the heart.

    Well, not really... just an easy way of saying.

    Have you read The solitude of prime numbers by Paolo Giordano? If not, you should... it's good. Mattia (the main character) hates 'normal' things like going to parties,... At one point, he meets a woman for who he would do all those 'normal' things. He still hates them, but it's a price he wants to pay in order to be together with her.
    You know you're in love when you want to do those things advocated by publicity (like buying flowers, spending a night together on a bench and looking at the stars while NOT discussing about light speed) just in order to be together with someone.
    But Mattia didn't realise you can actually have the best of two worlds. You don't have to do those things in order to show you love. Chances are, your boyfriend/girlfriend hates them too. Why sitting through a love movie in order to please someone who accepts it in order to please you when you could watch science fiction instead?
    And when you're sitting on a bench, looking at the stars, and the discussion does turn towards light speed... then you're the happiest person on earth.

    I wouldnt want to think that love can be allocated to a certain function, its more the whole person you are in love with. Of course, the most loving things in my girlfriend to me are, when she cares for me ( like leaving me a share of tobacco in the box in the mornings, because she knows we are both broke and cant buy new: maybe a Fe trait ) and when I go into a roleplay of words with her, in which we share a powerful Ni / Ne combo and both have a feeling of enlightnment in the course of discussion but with different things.

    She tho wouldnt be my girlfriend without her other traits aswell, for example her moodiness or forgetfulness. Plus her sometimes egoistic nature is a thing I like to criticize when it arises.

    These are tho all things I love in her and first in combination they form the person I love. If I were to advocate that to a certain mbti function or if I would make the assumption that due to the fact that I am loving her, all INFJs must be loveable creatures, I walk on dangerous ice; leaving my mind open to the danger of creating a dream world of things to me that works best for me, neglecting the real physical world and its new insights it can bring to create a new person of me thru the various stages of my life.

    On the quest of understanding, it's imparitive to keep a naive attitude.

    ^Banter? Humor? We're discussing theories! That's the whole purpose of our existence!
