    I've never loved an INTP. I've dated different INTPs but a lot of lack the kind of depth in emotions that I'd describe as healthy. I trust a lot in the face and that is usually lacking for me in INTP. They make however great friends to have during university and sitting down at a coffee shop to discuss ideas but usually nothing I'd write home about in a romantic way. Maybe one day an INTP can show me otherwise.

    ^If you're into girls, unlikely; if you're into guys, almost certainly not.

    Thank you Salome. However, on forums they seem to be one of my favorite posters as they infuse the kind of energy and logic that I follow. I am the opposite - a better speaker than writer.

    Ive been courted by a young INTP in the past, and would have dated him gladly if Id have been single. He was my best friend. My INTJs best friend is also INTP and I like him a great deal as well, which he seems to reciprocate. I find that I love the fact that they can take about anything in a humorous, almost ironic way. It really is a game of Ne, where you take different angles on a situation and elaborate on each others povs. They enrich my mind in that way, and their dry, analytical approach makes it easy to a) follow the game and b) guarantees amusement.

    On a more feelery note...they can be utterly squishy and sweet when they get all emotional about something or someone, and are some of the most loyal people around when healthy. Often they have great insight into people on a more theoretical, detached level, and ask me to fill them in on a practical level, when they are curious about someone in their environment. Vice versa, I find their theoretical hypotheses often illuminating to branch out my own knowledge wrt human nature.

    Lastly, they seem to have little trouble with my typical intense focus on them. In fact...they appear to bask in it, which for once means I do not have to reign myself in too much. I appreciate that a lot

    @Fourplay, It's because we share leading functions so can usually understand each other well but still have complementary strengths, which we admire in each other. This works for superficial interactions, like talking about shared interests in an impersonal space like a public forum. In private, it can lead to an erosive competitiveness though. Where I've seen it work is if the ENTP is female. I think her femininity maybe softens the impulse to go for the jugular that ENTPs frequently exhibit.
    I find ENTPs fascinating, if a little overwhelming in person, so I tend to admire them from a safe distance.

    A good heart; fierce loyalty in the relationship; caring in quiet practical ways; dry, intelligent humor and a sense of whimsy; compatible socializing habits and desire for independence (we give each other plenty of space); great troubleshooter of Ni-based grand schemes; very laid-back and easy-going, which balances my tendency to be more focused, scheduled, and stressed. My SO of many years is INTP. We speak the same language, our lifestyles are compatible, but our perspectives different enough to complement each other and provide balance.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
