    Yes. This person's problem isn't overactive Ne+Ti, it's that approaching an attractive person massively raises anxiety levels. The anxiety is the underlying issue. An ENTP man is just as capable of seeing a woman and saying "she's hot, I'm going to see if I can convince her to sleep with me" and approaching as anyone else. An ESTP man with significant anxiety issues surrounding women is just as likely to get trapped in looping thoughts while trying to analyze every aspect of the attractive woman. This is because it a standard response to anxiety shared by all members of humanity who get anxious.

    You can't analyze or describe emotions, you can only feel them. It is phenomenological in the same sense that the perception of color is. You can talk about neurotransmitters in just the same way that you do wavelengths of light, but those only speak to triggering mechanisms, and do not describe the experiential character of emotion and color, respectively.

There is a point where you just realize not everything about humans is logical?

    I am certainly Fi-driven but I also feel I relate to some of the things that poster was talking about.
    Coming late to the party (as usual) but, Ti is about being detached. It's used very much like a device. Standing back, building a model of understanding. Construction materials courtesy of Ne. And yes, there is a point where a Ti-dom or aux realizes that everything about humans is not logical. It is a moment of horror, hopelessness, and profound confusion. It can also be a moment of clarity, change, and wonder.

    I have a difficult time resisting analyzing everything I encounter. I'm convinced there is meaning, a pattern, and order in there, if I just poke, prod, and mess with it enough. Then I will "understand". I'm also old enough to know that some things cannot be understood (I can't believe I just said that!) and that it can even be a road to nowhere because it won't solve anything. There have been too many times when I was trying too hard to understand, missed everything, when I should have just experienced.

    I don't care about the patterns or some grand puzzle to unlock. The whole idea is kind of broken to me..it's always been broken. If I can't change it, I might as well do something else. Work on self improvement or something. Not "relationship improvement". Who knows, maybe that'll take me somewhere new, and I can revisit relationships. This is me resigning to saying it can't be understood. At the same time, I don't care to drop my guard and take some "leap of faith". "Oh, how I just need someone to complete me!" No, I don't. Maybe INTPs have greater ideals about it that push them there, without a sense of understanding.

    Idk =\ being a girl, I'm sure your pursuits are slightly different than mine. I don't know how the typical man would react with intensity that us ENTP's can exude. I, personally, enjoy intensive feedback in the same manner I give it. Any more would probably turn me off, any less as well.


    My largest concern right now is when sex will be introduced into the relationship... I'm dating so many people, but I don't know who to 'choose', or if I should even 'choose', or what...

    I've hurt people in the past about my selections with no to little intent of pursuit regarding a relationship, I feel guilty for things like that five years later...
    You are going to be hurt and hurt others in dating. Even if your actions during dating were with everyone's best intentions. Everyone should accept that. It's easier to handle when it happens. No surprises. No guilt.

    Hmmm, I'm glad you said that without me even going into detail.


    So people just get hurt. It's gonna take me a while to get used to that one.

    Are you being sarcastic, rude or neither?

    Yes totally this is how it looks from the outside too.

    Neither =( very appreciative, actually....



    it seems everyone always takes what i say the wrong way. i wonder what's wrong with me. read my wall posts, people are always.... idk. i suck i guess.









    what i mean was that there is more detail that would put my perspective into a favorable light, such as when i was pursuing sexual encounters with these females i had no intent of hurting them. i just grew... bored. and moved on. but they didn't. so to this day i feel guilty for it. but i didn't feel like going into depth. yet you still understood, without me telling, so it felt awesome.

    i guess i just come across in a very sarcastic manner. i really don't know.
