    Maybe ENTPs. INTPs... more unlikely.

    But, when I've had the opportunity to try my hand, I generally don't stray or have much interest in doing so. Even unrequited crushes are strangely monogamous. It'll gradually fade, then I can develop a new object of affection.
    This. I have exactly zero interest in "playing the field", or however the saying goes.

    Actually juggling benefriends can be easier than a typical single LTR. Usually the benefriends eventually gets neglected and moves on to more stable pastures. Even so it sucks up tremendous energy. What seems to happen more is that some of the targets of affection get into a commitment and consistency mode and the relationship continues off its own fumes/drift and the INTP not insisting on closure. (i.e. have sex with a partner(s) and they still come around on occasion for conversation and intimacy.

    In general I think most INTPs would be ideally happy just to have one mate who would give them their space and put up with occasional flirty or idiosyncratic behavior.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Could be a generalization, but I believe that INTP's are knowledge seekers more than anything. To rid that life purpose of theirs is to remove "women" in some.

    Spending time alone, concentrated on thought, learning (having zits) =/= unsatisfactory for the INTP. It is an acceptable behavior, and if you don't agree, you can fuck off. The norm doesn't objectify what is proper.

    (of course, a decent amount of socializing is needed here and there. But even those extroverted acts are ultimately for the benefit of Ti and Ne. Share ideas with others through Fe and learn through communication.) Happiness is being what you are.

    As to anyone's type, if well-informed, can only be the true judge of his/her character.

    I think this is accurate for some intps from what I've read and seen. There will obviously be variation.

    No disagreement here.

    Wow, four??? Now that I find really tough. I think three is the max (unless you have a career where you travel alot and lots of cash to finance it).

    I've found 2 to be a nice harmony but I can say that I really miss my third angle in the mix right now.

    Of course I believe in Astrology!! What do you think got me this far to begin with (:

    Actually, I think there is a higher "spiritual" side to believing in Astrology/Religion and other things like destiny, coincidence and the like. I'm definitely an INTP that simply reads, begins to see patterns, bases his beliefs on tried and tested observations. I theorize. Ask a person at a social gathering their sign and then test my knowledge of them in the same manner one would casually list off a few traits on a INFJ or other type.

    I generally focus on the profile and character descriptions of Astrology instead of the "what will happen tomorrow" stuff. I have although had visions where I seem to see how the future stuff may make sense but I decided not to really get into that since it conflicts with my strong Catholic views on God and what we should and shouldn't do.

    For theory purposes, let's assume that an INTP is seeking knowledge on women. He begins to understand life after a divorce, losing a child, near death experiences, economic cycles and world events. Well, this knowledge seeking is still there but it creates a thread on human emotions. The human emotion thread (thought thread) is not really something he consciously decided to do but rather part of a situation that developed and he rationalized as a fruit of all the confusion that initially arose. Believe me, I've been confused at times and have so far been able to get on my feet by resorting to my logic, my verbal proficiency to communicate my feelings and proactively, from then on, continue with whatever outcome. Let's not forget that I do believe in spiritual things as well. I believe location, meeting a person and a particular spot, a particular time when a minutes difference or change of situation could have prevented that encounter from happening in the first place. When you live life in "the zone" per se, I like to see myself as a wonderfully lucking bystander enjoying life who is seeking knowledge, piling up mountains of love and releasing it all back to the world that brought it to begin with.

    yeah, yeah, by multiply cheating on his girlfriends.

    you'd be a good seller though, perhaps. Like those scam television astrologists you know.
