ENTP-

touch

(some day i will write up some long ramble on further thoughts on this topic)

...anyone find any correlations yet?

----

edit: quick tabulation of results thus far (function order does not follow rank in personality necessarily):

Ne-Ti
Touch/QT

Ne-Fi

Touch, WoA

Se-Ti:
WoA QT

Si-Te:
QT

Ne-Fi:
QT, touch

Ne-Ti
Touch Gifts

Ni-Te:
QT, Aos

Si-Te
QT Touch

Ni-Fe
QT AoS

Ne-Fi
Touch QT

Ne-Fi
WoA QT

Si-Te
QT

Ni-Te
Touch WoA

Ni-Fe
QT Touch

Se-Fi
WoA QT

Ne-Ti
Touch, AoS

---

what I see: A fairly clear correlation between N, (especially Ne?), and listing touch as one of the top two. (obviously sample size isn't very large, but only 1 out of the 5 Ss listed it, as opposed to 8/11 N's)

QT is definitely the #1 language (amongst those types that responded)... (so weird for me, I would totally have guessed AoS but apparently that's just because that's my personal #1)
3 out of the 4 people who did not list QT were NTs (the last one was an NF). (The two remaining NTs-- 1 Ne-Ti, 1 Ni-Te-- did list it)

Nothing else leaps out at me.


Sample distribution:

out of 16 respondents:
Ne: 7
Ni: 4
Se: 2
Si: 3
--
Ti: 4
Te: 5
Fi: 5
Fe: 2

ENFP and quality time isn't really one of mine... It's important of course but I find discussion/contrasting of ideas to be the most bonding thing there is. A person is their thoughts, but I don't need to see them frequently or lengthily.

Edit: Yes and touch.

"Yes and touch" isn't (in your top two, just like QT isn't), or "yes and touch" is (in your top two... what does the 'and' mean?)?

Another thought:
this could all be more useful if choices were (much) more clearly defined. What a person thinks the words "Quality Time" mean would affect the answer. Someone could say "discussing/contrasting ideas" IS quality time, for example.

Sorry, I saw people mentioning touch being a big one for intuitives only after I'd made my post. I would say that is a top 2, yes. Kind of contradictory with my not needing quality time haha

Well nowadays discussion can be done from a distance. I guess I just didn't count in quality time because I don't tend to need to have the person around a lot (that doesn't mean I enjoy distance more though). The companionship is more in the mind for me, knowing there's someone on your wavelength out there who you can share the complexity that derives from intuition with. I meet so few people I find intricate enough to level with me...

INTJ

12/12 Physical Touch *
8/12 Quality Time
6/12 Words of Affirmation
4/12 Acts of Service
0/12 Receiving Gifts


* I should note that "physical touch" is something I'm only truly comfortable with a spouse. In general social interactions, when people touch me casually, I find it a bit uncomfortable.

What, the fact that I don't typically like casual physical touch, or the fact that I put a footnote in my answers? ;)
Both.

(My relationship (as a very touch-person) with a close INTJ friend went like this:
Year one: Aaah! Don't touch me!
Year two: Your allotted allowance of touch is once a month.
Year three: HUGS! ...but i am slightly embarrassed that I like them so stop laughing and hug me already.)

Wow I can't imagine that. Physical touch is my most important desire of expressing and also receiving love with a wife. When I was with my INFJ ex, she was so anti-affection it drove me crazy. I'm very cuddly, as a husband. I've heard that many INTJs are extremely affectionate to the one person who they've dropped their guard with.

Well, at times, the J's clash with each other pretty intensely, but I'm not so sure about unfulfilled... my dad can actually be very thoughtful when it comes to blessing my mom, like cleaning house before she get's home, and giving her hugs when she needs them.

It's pretty weird actually, they barely have any overlap. But they are both happy, so, I guess it's all good, huh?

Yes indeed, its actually very encouraging. I'm courting an ENFJ woman and I've read comments saying such a combo is not advised. I'm optimistic though. Our love languages line up, so that's a good bonus too.
