Stop taking everything off my head. LOL! *hugs*So when some woman comes along who seems imaginative, and slightly quirky/unpredictable/mysterious, and able to follow what he's saying and even push him a bit ahead of himself....well, there is a zap or connection there, he gets a jolt off it.
As a male INTP, I won't overblow his possible hang-ups, or whatever that void is. Introverted Thinking can really create a really strong "lie" of making the void appear smaller than what it actually is. And it always work like that.I would think it hurts him a lot on the inside. Even if he can detach or act indifferent. And it's not just losing you, but losing "possibilities" for his life to change. A very big broad loss in addition to the specifics of you.
Hmmm....come to think of it. My "dream girl" falls in the INFP category. If you've watched the movie 300, you can imagine the set-up between Leonidas and his wife, of how he consults her before going to war, with him having doubts about his endeavor, and he needs the moral support of the wife.I guess it would hurt him... Not to get too off the point, although I think it is quite related, but how do you think animus/anima relates in this. We could have just been projecting onto each other... intensely. Do you think INTP have a particular animus (like a particular type) or would this be more inclined to very specific characteristics based un upbrining - I leaning more towards the latter.
As vivid as my memory is (or any INTP for that matter), I don't think I'm detached from reality that much to envision that perfect archetypal girl to the point of making her almost a surreal entity in my mind, which I daydream about, when at the same time, I have a fully working relationship in the real world. The idea of interacting with an effeminate subconscious is something that happens to me on some occasions, but it doesn't affect me that much to the point of affecting my daily life.
Well, of course, things do get surprising when that archetypal girl shows up in reality--basically manifests in a certain real life person.
