    Heart.

    My reasoning being that as someone stated on the first page, a companion who has a sharp mind is only interesting for a bit. I'd rather have someone who could show me that feelings aren't all that bad to have.

    I'm really shocked only 3 ppl selected body.

    I think it's because it doesn't sound appealing:
    Body including face.

    What’s the point, especially in a long term relationship? The appeal of the human body goes down the crapper after a certain age. Barring Dementia and Alzheimer’s, the mind and heart are far more resilient.
    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?

    This is a terrible poll. Intellectual or emotional "capacity"?

    Compatibility cannot be trivialized to those factors.

    I agree. I brought it up eariler, but they would not change it. I explained that emotional capacity was just someone's ability for a certain level of emotion and was not at all an accurate summary of personality, and that intellectual capacity was simply intelligence, and not even a designated type of intelligence at that, and could hardly be well measured or used as a way to determine how happy someone would make you. A personality is made up of far more varying factors than this.

    For some reason, they wanted to keep it exactly how it is.

    yeah... i think it's kind of an eventual Ne dom desire... either someone with J or dom Ti or something to help hold us down

    If I had a relationship, I'd want it to be serious. Not serious like all stoic and stuff, just like not a game or a fling or anything.
    i suspect i've passed up a few potential relationships because they were those "let's see what develops" kind of deals. i don't want to see what develops. i want to make it happen.

    1. Mind
    A brilliant 'Mind' is incredibly appealing. Throw in a little 'Heart' (not too much), now we're talkin' sexy. One without the other is not fulfilling.

    Some might say the 'Body' is a reflection of what's on the inside...

    Heart. To help me thaw me out a bit. Relationships should have warm-fuzzies and that's something I can't provide.

    Mind is for work. I'd like a partner I can turn off with.

    I've got a minimum body threshold but it's not that high.

    I've been chasing enfp's recently.

    Once you've had the mind meld, you'll never go back. Mind trumps everything by a long shot.
