Hi all. - I am in love with an INTP. I must emphasize that I feel DEEP, PASSIONATE INFP love for this man.
The mental and emotional rapport we have is excellent, and the sex is amazing. He has strong emotions but he keeps them under wraps much better than I do, and he is able to rationally think his way out of some of his issues better than I do.
We are both smart, but he assimilates information in a more cool, rational matter, where learning is an emotional experience for me...I have to FEEL something about the subject to learn well. I don't find any of our differences to be a problem, in fact I think we compliment each other perfectly. And fortunately our socio-political views, and our ideals for humanity, align completely.
He listens to my endless rambling about my feelings, and holds me if I have to cry (and I have indeed done the same for him, just not as often hehe) - He has an incredible amount of patience with me. I need his relative stability, calmness, lucid rationality - And he needs my frivolity, my passionate, raw emotionality, and the intense romance and affection I smother him with. He loves it. He needs it...and he says he's never been as connected to anyone in the world as he is with me. Which melts my heart...and I admit I feel the same way about him.
It seems that most INFPs perceive INTPs as very cold individuals. D, the man I love, has told me that he is extremely quiet around strangers and many people think he is cold, emotionless; so I can understand the misconceptions some people have. He is about 60/40 T to F, so he is not overwhelmingly Thinking oriented, which helps, I think. But he is definitely very introverted, much more so than I.
I am having a wonderful time with my INTP, though most people see the two types as incompatible.
Have any of you guys ever been in love with an INTP?
