    It’s not even close: Mind. I’m not sensitive enough that I need, or particularly want, anyone to understand me emotionally. I also agree with Mondo, in that individuals who focus on their mind are rare, and that I would prefer to be with someone who I can exchange ideas with and who can challenge me intellectually. Within my most preferred scenario I would marry a professional rival.

    Just because individuals who are “emotionally sufficient” are more common than those who are “intellectually sufficient” does not mean that one has to prefer them in a relationship. It’s the same with individuals who are more attracted to people possessing an above average physical appearance or socio-economical status.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    I think the poll results so far reflect a bit the influence that gender roles still have on people's preferences. NT men voted heart a lot more than NT women did.

    There are no right or wrong answers. Just interpretation of information.

    Probable but..
    I think we need a larger "sample" size before making any solid conclusions though.

    Sure, of course. I wasn't trying to conclude anything. But I will say that it goes inline with my thoughts on the matter for a long time now.

    The mental connection is very important, I'm finding. I used to not think so.

    I would say so, as well. The results between the polls are a lot more consistent with women. I'd also expect that this is due to the fact that a Thinking female less directly reflects expected gender roles than a Thinking male does. A Thinking male not only satisfies what many NTs admire in a person in general but also does not conflict with how many women expect a man to act.

    Ditto.

    Being loved really isn't enough... I need that mental connection. It makes me feel understood.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.
