    Indeed. I refer you to murkow's point about the possibility of taking him from her.

    This whole thing is just his Ni going haywire.

    He knows where he'll go if he keeps talking to you, and his hubris makes him think he knows better than his intuitions.

    He needs a good kick in the head.
    wails from the crypt.

    Could be a more E thing vs myself as I'm an I, as I might just keep it inside in respect to all. Confessing though can get a lot of your chest, problem is I don't think it did the trick as he is obviously conflicted with his NTJ to his current SO towards possibly a much stronger N attraction to you.

    So is THAT what he's doing? Putting a shot across my bow? I'm not sure how he expects me to accomplish that, knowing that I'm sick.

    Ahhh. So he perceives himself to be walking through a minefield by speaking to me, only a minefield he thinks he might be able to navigate? I have to wonder why I'm such a pitfall if his situation is as he had it planned. Unless I wasn't part of the plan, perhaps.

    This is very clarifying. I have an INTJ guy friend, and sometimes I can see him internally exploding, but saying very little. He's so transparent to me, though. I can tell when he's upset even when he's stony faced.
