    I am deeply attracted to both of these types, but for some reason cannot imagine these two types jelling, especially in the romantic sense.

    ^ Depends on the person. I know a couple of INTJs who I think are reasonable, and a few others who are absolutely crazy. I think it's related to the level of J-ism, relative to my P-ness.

    That's exactly what I mean.

    I wouldn't be able to sleep at night in fear they'd attempt to turn me into a robot. :eek:

    Thank you Aphrodite. I hope you find your Spock. ; D

    SillySapienne, I have to admit that intimacy in the beginning was a bit awkward because it took some time for us to really open up and trust each other, but once we did, it was incredible! ISTPs show their love through action and INTJs . . . well we like to search for complete mastery of the things that interest us . . . so it's always evolving. Many ENFPs I know seem to need a lot of affirmation from their mates. I had to learn early on that my ISTP was best at telling me he loved me by watching movies and squeezing my shoulders when the romantic lead told his woman he loved her. Now he's more comfortable with articulating his love for me because I didn't push him to do it. I also know that when he says it . . . he REALLY means it!

    Oh, and Speed! My ISTP man and I both LOVE Stargate! Has anyone typed John Crichton and Aeryn Sun of Farscape? LOL!

    I'm friends with an INTJ and I'd go nuts with him around all of the time. We have stupid arguments and he thinks I'm pedantic. Of course Ns get the better of me when they spin something around in circles and I lose sight of the original point. My ENTP friend does the same thing. The INTJ is also quite the elitist and that drives me absolutely crazy. I don't know what it is about them, but the Ns I know are cool friends but I'd never want to date them. The closest would be my eNFP friend, but even he is a little out there.

    I know it sounds like I'm ragging on the Ns, but I just mean romantically. You guys are generally pretty awesome friends

    I just realized why my husband is always saying, "The POINT is . . . " Haha!

    We have also realized that had we met many years earlier we would have most likely not been attracted to each other at all . . . It took me a long time to realize that what I was looking for in a man was courage and the acceptance to be myself.

    Somehow the type appeals to me. Maybe because they seem to roll with the Ni punches.
