It's funny, I read your post as if you looked at women like the Terminator scans for targets. With the red vision and the cool little dialogue that pops up that gives their intent and possibly course of action.

You ask why do women do the things they do, then generalize the concept that men do not do those things. I think it's because, women are not men~ and perhaps men are not what you think they are either. Try to identify less with their gender and more about what they're telling you as individuals. If you put a blanket perspective on an entire gender you're bound to miss on the subtleties of their way around you.

I would think being here on the forum dedicated to looking at personalities and the individuals who possess them, you would understand that people are not their gender. That each personality type has both gender types associated with it. Though some may be rarer than others, typing people based on something like that is ridiculous.

ENFP males are very rare for instance, many of the qualities I possess are qualities many women are associated to possess. Some may call me feminine. However doesn't my existence mean that these are also the qualities of a man as well? Should they then also be considered masculine? Are they not 'my' qualities? Am I not male? Does it really matter? Get to know me and find out~ but many, like you, are not looking at that aspect of who I am. They see gender, and what they feel should amount to it.

People aren't going outside of a gender norm~ gender norms are something we arbitrarily assigned things because as this website's existence also shows, is something we like. We like categorizing people and events (look at all the sub-sub genres of music out there), but things are what they are I suppose. I would hope MBTI would help teach that isn't really the case with people in general.

When a woman approaches you, and does something, it's not necessarily because she's a woman. It's because she has had a series of experiences in her life, both personal and impersonal that have lead her to act the way she does. Her family, friends and way of being have made her, what she is. She has a name, a history you cannot see in the brief moment you've acknowledged her existence in this world. I only ask that you should try to look closer.
