I get the feeling if you're unsatisfied with your partner, you will come right out & say it to their face. Right?
I agree with that. When I'm not happy in a relationship or don't want to go out with someone, I say it right away, which is usually a bit of a problem for the other person, because I'm sometimes brutaly honest. I'm still trying to fix saying something like: "In my opinion, the outcome of our relationship is just negative. I don't get any benefits from it anymore. I'm sorry, but I don't gain anything from our relationship" (That's also a great example of just breaking down emotions into actions, benefits and problems)Yup, also the type most likely to be oblivious that our relationship partner is cheating behind our back. IMHO an ESTJ is the quickest to leave a dissatisfying intimate relationship.
Ironic that I was very recently discussing a tangential topic with a good friend.I wouldn't really care, if he cheated, because even if I noticed, it "didn't happen", right?
Hmm... Well, I have yet to see someone who's really cheating on me. ^^ I mean, I'm still pretty young, so my philosophy is most likely going to change, but at the moment, I actually get jealous really easily. For example when I saw my ex-boyfriend with another girl. However, if I don't see, whatever he's doing behind my back, I really don't care, because, well, what I don't see isn't proven to exist. Even if I noticed, I'd try to talk about it, because I hate change and emotional problems and whatsoever, so I try to sort things out as soon as possible.Ironic that I was very recently discussing a tangential topic with a good friend.
During my youth I needed to know everything about anything that interested me, except that I'd rather have not known were my SO cheating behind my back. More recently I've adopted the philosophy that life is too short to tolerate loved ones treating me similar to a yoyo or a doormat, I'd want to know were somebody cheating on me or otherwise treating me like shit.
IOW don't jerk me around telling me to stay or go as though I'm a yoyo & don't track mud all over my insides
You are asking the question in a relationship context. I understand where you're coming from, but it's quite hard to answer it in a general way.I get the feeling if you're unsatisfied with your partner, you will come right out & say it to their face. Right?
