I'm not an INTP but still longed to click something, somewhere for some reason.
This is a discussion on Types You've Dated or Had a Relationship with? within the INTP Forum - The Thinkers forums, part of the NT's Temperament Forum- The Intellects category; Originally Posted by stuff Very true :) I actually have no regrets about any of them, I learned a lot ...
lt's great that people take a lot of time to understand themselves now but l feel like so many younger people don't even feel like they're obligated to deal with people who are different than them or really even anything that makes them uncomfortable.
l don't see them ever growing up lol.
Maybe l should take my rant to the Generations forum though. l sound like a grumpy Gen Xer. And l'm not, even.
There's a flip side to everything, I suppose....
Going to school with younger people who grew up interneting and using social networking and gaming and all that, it really struck me. They have a really hard time interacting with people outside their cliques. I know people have always been like that, but there used to be some sense of common courtesy when I was their age. It wasn't cool to just jump on anyone who was different, it was cooler to be the bigger person, especially when it came to the "socially vulnerable" -- like aspies, learning disabled, poor people, etc. There were still bullies, but they were the rarer exception. Now it's just a free-for-all of constant shit-slinging. They do it on their phones all through class.
The internet might be making people dumber in certain key ways.
Exactly. l see it with everything.
Also a reluctance to "label" anything at the same time, which results in completely ignoring some of the positive differences that different groups of people have, too.
But who knows, they're going to become the adults who run everything soon enough and then maybe every identifiable object or label as we know it will cease to exist and we'll all coexist as an ageless, genderless, multi-racial, pansexual amorphous blob lol.
Both of my relationships were more pseudo-relationships than real ones. But whatever.
I'm typing these people in retrospect, because I don't date based on MBTI.
INFP - Sweet guy. I tried to convince myself we had more in common than we did. He had low self-confidence, kind of wimpy. Very intelligent. Very romantic. Kind of flaky. I dumped him, we're still friends.
ENTP - Very witty, weird. We clicked really well conversationally. We flirted while having conversations about etymology, which I'm under the impression is an NT kind of thing to do. Oh God, he was hot. More confident than I was. Good kisser. The relationship ended when he suddenly flaked when it seemed like the relationship had reached the point when it needed to be serious. We don't really talk any more, but I ran into him at a bowling alley recently and it wasn't terribly awkward.

An INTP: Everything that wasn't entirely esoteric she had no respect for. Even HUMOR. Entirely intense, impersonal, cold even towards me. I lost interest fast.
INTJ: Even more extreme than the intp.
ESFP: Religious fanatic, I think I enjoyed the fact that my actions put her into turmoil. Because of me she had sex before marriage, went to a party and engaged in light drug use, and began "questioning god." I'm laughing right now I went into her life and flipped everything upside down. I didn't have that malicious intent, the way that I naturally am personality wise simply resulted in all of that happening.
ENTP: We were friends with benefits. We were both too "free" to commit to each other. I wouldn't of wanted that in any case.
ISFP: We have a love hate relationship. Were not actually dating though. She has an obscene sense of humor as well and still manages to be classy. She's good looking too like.......it's intimidating. It's extremely complicated we've both stated that we like each other but she's in a relationship and I drift around from person to person (I'd be willing to commit to her). When I'm nice to her she's suddenly mean. When I ignore her she says she misses me. If I'm apathetic towards her she gets VERY affectionate towards me. So I start acknowledging her again and then she's indifferent towards me again. It's a constant game of rejection and acceptance on both of our parts. Sometimes she'll say something deep regarding how she feels (towards me) and then insult me in a joking manner almost if what she said embarrassed her. And I'm OVERLY sarcastic at times so my reply usually stings, and then she gets upset. Also she gets EXTREMELY jealous even though were not together. I can't tell if she actually likes me. I like her the most out of all of the above though.
I can't believe I'm in that type of relationship.
