    Default ISTP-INFP Relationship

    Thoughts?


    And just to satisfy my curiosity...

    hypothetical scenario:

    You're in a relationship with an INFP that's managed to catch your interest. You and your friends go out to Vegas for a crazy-ass bachelor party for one of your friends. You drink a lot, you gamble a lot, and there are hot girls/guys all around.

    Would you (and be honest) enjoy the hot girls/guys (if not sex, then what?) as much as you enjoy the other two mediums of entertainment? Especially if there's no way your boyfriend/girlfriend would find out? Or would that matter at all?

    If you were engaged?

    Married?

    Just curious...

    It depends on the individual ISTP.

    Even if they love that sort of stimulation, when they decide to commit to someone, when they decide to love someone, it's as good as any other commitments.

    There are douche ISTPs and there are ones who would never ever cheat.

    This is an odd question. I sense that you have a purpose behind this.

    It was just a thought in my head :blushing:

    In hindsight it probably should have stayed there

    Individual basis. MBTI does not measure ethical standards of behavior.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    well, i'm not quite INFP, but i don't have a huge problem with my partner enjoying hot people around, though i would appreciate being asked about the whole sex thing first. i mean honestly, if you're half-drunk and suddenly get the chance to fool around with 5 showgirls, i can't really begrudge you that. i'd want to hear all about it though

    seriously though SP =/= addicted to physical stimulation. just cause you prefer and are better at sensing physical things and living in the moment doesn't mean you don't have relationship boundaries too

    My ISTP has been the guy who would have enjoyed the other 'entertainment' and the guy who wouldn't dream of straying. If the INFP in this situation had a solid relationship with the ISTP I don't think there would be a problem.

    It wouldn't work. But I would have sex with her. When I got tired of her, I'd just read her some poetry, and magically be single again.

    He'll only cheat on you if a clear opportunity presents itself.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
