    Default Does Duality imply statistically equal number of dual types

    that in the population there are the same number of duals? Theoretically, given the duality-theorem, there should be the same number of INTJs and ESFJs, ISTPs and ENFPs, and so on?

    If this were found to be true, it would be a huge leap forward for giving socionics some kind of formal scientific credibility.

    The concept of gender is not less true because there are not an equal proportion of men and women.

    Why does the theory imply that there would be equal types? No one said the world was perfect, there aren't even the same number of men and women in the world.

    So someone mentioned today that he thinks that ENxps are the least likely types to want to be with their duals. If that is true, it kinds sucks for the ISxps!

    Hmmm. I find that's true for me. Somehow there's just no real excitement.

    Good, more ISFps for INTjs

    Those isfps are cute. But I wouldnt mind a sly istp type if only they would come out of hiding. I think the reverse is actually more true. ISXPs dont want to be with their duals

    ISFps are ummmmmmmmmmmm too needy for me, I guess. Like I said in my duality thread, how the fuck should I know about what types are best for eachother in relationships?

    It's not that we enjoy being alone. It's just that people who are too forward force us away from them even if we don't want to.

    Rocky, do you find IEE to be too forward? If so, what would you suggest to them when approaching SLI? SLI seems very uncomfortable taking initiative in personal matter and so may go overlooked.

    No, I don't see IEEs being to forward most of the time... them and the SEE are ussually good with that. It's the Fe type who are "too forward". As for apporaching an SLI, hmm... don't get too emotional or bubbly. Act like you've know the person all your life, and you're not a stranger. If, say, an SLI is sitting there reading a book, it would be okay to ask what the book's about, or maybe bring up something that has personal significance, but don't ask "How do feel" or get outright emotional and intrusive.

    LOL! I completely agree. I can totally see how they work with ENTp though, because the ENTp is oblivious to thier worship and takes them for granted it seems.

    ISFp's are actually a little scary to me, almost like you could start a whole cult with 'em....or totally crush thier spirit with one misplaced word...
    I think they are a lot tougher than that.

    A misplaced word doesn't crush their spirit, but it may well make them explode in rage, throw a tantrum, or turn sullen for a few hours.

    Exactly, that is why they are so scary. Like being around something that you should feel a certain way towards...except that you don't.

    However, I am probably generalizing from a few cases of girls who seemed ISFp. They didn't have enough "bitch" in them for me I guess...I don't like to feel that I am walking on eggshells.
    You want a bitch, eh?
