I'm kinda curious about this friend of mine. What type do you think she is? She hasn't been in my town for..eek..3 years...so I'm not sure how much I'll remember that is consequential socionics-wise... but I'll give it a shot.
She loves debating law and politics. She never did this around me, though, since I don't know anything about either So I can't say much about her arguing style... She listened to speakers on both sides, though, moderate through extreme. Sometimes I'd wonder - how can she listen to this guy? She's a lawyer now, specializing in international law.
Her S.O. is an EIE. One long-standing point of friction is the fact that he's told her he needs more verbal affirmation and encouragement in general. Her response to that is, "I just can't do that. That's not me." I don't think I've seen her get emotional about anything, except where he's concerned. They seem comfortable with each other... although very independent of each other too.
Her description of how they started is that he is not what she previously went for. She broke up with a complete nut job and started dating him and he grew on her. She is of the opinion that you can 'grow' to love someone. (Whereas mine would be that there are some people who don't go together no matter how long you're with them) She also discounts her ESE friend's necessity for 'chemistry' - a 'click' - doesn't think that's important in the beginning.
Work - she's pretty reliable. I think she was given a lot of responsibility for someone her age.
She will stand her ground if someone is trying to give her the short end of the deal. One instance in particular makes me laugh - she sold her car, and a foreign person from a 'haggling' country offered to pay the asking price for it. He arrived and told her he'd pay significantly less. She argued with him for 30 minutes until he gave her full price. She threw in her box of car care supplies as a bonus.
Overall I'd say she is sociable, but she doesn't do a great deal of initiating. Kind of similar to myself, I guess.
If I can think of anything else I'll add it... I'm kind of wondering if she's LSE and I was totally clueless as to what one of those looks like...
