Ada's experience sounds pretty familiar. Including the forgetting to pay the bills part.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Actually, I've never fallen in 'love'. I'm 18 years old and there are only two people I've really liked so far. And I was always quick to label it as an infatuation rather than love. I like to question love, (only in the romantic sense of it. I believe in most other variations of love). I often wonder whether it actually exists, outside of hormones.
I'd definitely like to experience it though. I'm sure the dopamine rush must be damn good.
So yeah, not much lovin' here for me. My INTP friend, though, is quick to fall into obsessions.
I often wonder whether it actually exists, outside of hormones.
I often wonder that too. It seems the most successful marriages I know of are those that don't begin with that 'romantic spark of love' but rather uniting based on similar interests and starting out as friends.
That's at least how my parents (both T types) started out and they've been married for 27 years without any problems.
One thing I seem to enjoy is 'falling in love'.
I remembered reading somewhere that INTP's and ENTP's are prone to the obsessive sort of love in their younger years.
Do other XNTP's here find that to be true?
When I meet a person I really like, I will often be willing to do anything I can to make that person happy- my way of showing love- of being the 'nice guy'.
Yeah, thats true for me. I try not to be too nice to the person, but i always fail, kind of... i m easily hurt by the person who i love, but i forgive fast( which reminds me of my extremly loyal isfj mother).... propably in love i m more the i"nf"p rather than nt
I was several times in love, due to the preference of daydreaming i kind of get stuck with dreaming and thinking about the person i like.
i started to fall in love pretty early (with 8 or so),but i was always too shy, i had my really first big love with 16 and than again with 18
