^This^ is oddly how I feel with those in my past relationships (ISFPs, ENFP, etc...) - having an ENTP significant other for me is actually a breath of fresh air because she has a thick skin and can call me on my shit and not stab me to death with it. The tiptoeing can be sweet, but I actually really welcome that criticism because the intent is not to harm me - it is to chew on the subject using Ne. I really appreciate that and it's the first time that I've had it in a relationship and I am having a blast.Malkovich said:I like them... from afar. It's pretty tasking to have a relationship with them, I feel like I'm walking on egg shells all the time trying not to hurt them. It's not just that they're ridiculously easily hurt, it's also that there's something about them that really makes me not want to hurt them (unlike with most people where I just shrug it off when I accidentally do, with INFPs I feel pretty bad about it). They're just too much work and stress for me, and too little mutual understanding. Sorry.
Shit, this made me laugh because I think this is both accurate and genuine... Gwad, I can hear my GF's voice saying this. LMAO.Monte said:General speaking, when you guys are being fucking awesome, you guys are being fucking awesome, but when you guys want to be annoying, sensitive fucks, you guys want to be annoying sensitive fucks.
This is the weirdest thing I have had to deal with in a relationship - you guys are as bad as us INFPs when it comes to compliments. In addition, nobody seems to want to tell you guys that you are awesome. Not the superficial 'good job on that excel guide for dummies that you made it so that the rest of your workteam doesn't die trying to complete this task', but the 'you know that you are good person, right? Like smart, beautiful, sexy, and I love you.'Overall, I like you guys, you make me feel a bit more human and you honestly make me feel like someone gives a shit about me. You're good brain buddies and when you're not taking a debate too seriously, you can be very entertaining. And the two I know are very good at some form of art.
Shit, this made me laugh too, but mostly at myself. It's not just him. I don't think things are stupid... just irrelevant until they become something important to me personally. You guys and gals really like conversation, but it's not the type of conversation I'm used to - there is a lot less... finesse in most of the subjects that are explored. You guys aren't searching for the meaning of life - you're searching for the meaning of everything. At once. It's fascinating, but can also be exhausting.You all are so easy to offend, and it's always the weirdest things. We can joke about the holocaust or slavery or killing one another's grandparents because they're old anyway, but then some tiny, microscopic comment will be made and first you get quiet. I know you're thinking about it, trying to rationalize it, but it doesn't work and then next comes the question of whether or not I really believe that, I don't take your concern seriously enough, you get pissy. I'm not sure if this is just my boyfriend or what, but if he doesn't agree with something, or before he gets to know something, it's stupid. His philosophy is that something is stupid until proven otherwise, which is fucking retarded.
