    But the INTP still has to accept the chosing one.

    I was absolutely compelled to talk to this person, and as I got to know them, they turned out to be everything I wasn't. It was like two puzzle-pieces came together to make a blissful finished product.

    What type is the other puzzle piece?
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    I would like to say "Because he was filthy rich."

    If someone out there could set me up so that I would be able to say that, I'd be very much obliged.

    ENFP. I didn't expect it either. I was all wrapped up in socionics and identical type relations at the time, and definitely didn't believe in that love-at-first-sight nonsense...

    It's not nonsense, sometimes you hit one out of the park.
    Glad it worked for you.

    Everyone is so different. Some thrive in opposite pairings, others need people who are more similar in order for things to last.

    More seriously, for me, what I've found is that I need someone who is smart, funny, laid-back, empathetic/sensitive, and independent. I'm still wavering on the "creative" thing, since one way I bond would be by sharing a creative vision with a mate; in any case, I admire people with self-vision and a purpose to their lives as well.

    My part relationship was a mistake in many ways. Apparently my basic criteria as a teenager for a partner was "someone who likes me first and who believes the same things I do." That was not a great foundation for me to build a relationship on (especially when our beliefs diverged!), I was just too desperate and befuddled at the time to understand my legitimate needs and then pursue them. Instead I just tried to flex to whatever came my way.

    I would recommend NOT doing the "flexy" thing into a relationship, and instead be more proactive in screening potential mates.

    It didn't, actually. It ended in one of the more horrendous ways I could possibly imagine. But, it was pretty awesome while it lasted.

    Oh gee, talk about the "twist ending" I didn't know was coming. sorry... and sorry things ended badly as well.

    It sounds like you at least took something away from it, though.

    Personally, while I have a few ENFP friends, I also tend to get into arguments with other ENFPs I know. Not good. (It seems to depend on whether they are more N or more F.)
