    Default NT's and Love?

    One thing I seem to enjoy is 'falling in love'.
    I don't know why I enjoy it- I have done it often.
    However, in most ways, I relate much more to the T preference than F.

    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'.

    I think id say so because it gives a different perspective on things, it kind of opens up how much your feeling can drive things and how powerful they can be in a sense it is a different logical framework that is very hard to understand and come to grips with.

    You also really get a sense for how opposing thinking and feeling can be. Its like an endless war with your thinking bringing up an endless amount of theories and logical ways to act.
    eventually you get to a point where your just like yea I really like this person yet im spending an inordinate amount of time thinking about why I should not feel that way.

    Oh, how I hate these threads.

    NTs should not love. We are supposed to be cold-hearted sociopaths.

    Um, yeah. Pretty much. That sentiment is still alive and well within me, just tempered (or butchered) a lot by life experience.

    My husband is ENTP; I am INTP.

    We met 18 years ago... the first night we were together we were stranded together, by friends who took off to hook up. We didn't notice too much, we were deep into conversation... conversation led to...

    Our relationship basically started as a one-night stand .... we've been married for 17 years. How's that for obsessive sort of love?

    My ENTP husband jumps through hoops to make me happy all the time... he's kind of romantic like that...

    We are often deficient in the same areas... we are also on the same wave line more often than not.... consider this real-life scenario:

    "So ...neither one of us thought to pay the electric bill?".... "Okay, it's now been paid .... but service will not be restored until sometime tomorrow morning, what are we suppose to do until then?".... "Hmmm.... aaahhhh....ooohhh...."

    Who needs electricity when you can make your own?

    I don't think I've ever felt the full implications of romantic love. I've been infatuated. I've had a deep, affectionate concern for some people. But I've never had both for one person at the same time. I've always thought of true love as feeling those two things for the same person.

    I've sadly never gotten the chance to try nurturing infatuation into love.
    As for those I care about... they were not material for infatuation.

    The lord giveth and the lord taketh away.

    Man is he a taker... That is how I have to describe my experience with love. Don't know if it's just my life or a trend with NT's?
