    Default Which works better: Semi-duality or Activity Relations?

    Semi-duality or activation?

    It's not a trick question; I'm genuinely interested to hear people's response to this, because I'm not sure there is a "right" or "wrong" answer. It's basically down to what you think is more important; complete quadra value compatibility or functional ordering.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.

    so if given a choice between being with an isfp or an estj, i'd choose the isfp.
    so semi-duality

    Mainly because I lust after Si...
    and prefer an IP temperament over an EJ temperament by far!!

    Same with me.

    I can also add that ESFjs make me feel shy a lot of the time. They're so wonderfully sociable that it makes me feel awkward a lot of the time.

    I find semi-duals more stimulating than activity partners. But activity is probably better over the long term, because I know with semi-duals, once I get over their awesome , it's gonna get boring, whereas the activity will keep me interested.

    Activities have more room to support each other. Semi-duality sounds attractive from descriptions but impotent and egocentric.

    Activity.

    Activation without a doubt. My semi-dual (SLE) reminds me of a psychopath and my parents are semi-duals and they don't get along at all, but my closest and most rewarding relationships have been with ESIs.

    The semi-dual might be easier to build a life with due to temperament compatibility, but activity is way better on whole.

    Those are tears of laughter. Not because your partner is a psychopath, but bc someone other than IEI is saying this.

    activity- way more resonance in thoughts
    my semi duals are hot. but the closer i get the more i don't get them
    There was no place that destruction did not touch...At best it made everything feel flooded, urgent, while pushing towards decay and exposing the imminent failure of managing to maintain a form at all. Inside this was the kernel of wholeness. She could be broken down into a small, granular piece, a bit of debris jostling against other bits of debris, and in that friction there was some sense of having a boundary or a presence, and that thing-ness of the self, reduced to a basic instinctive sensation, was an almost-nothing feeling that, in its small hard knot of a numb halo, made it clear to her that you were here, you were now.

    Semi-duals because they make me draw Madonna tattoos on their shoulders while they complain about school.

    I've have a better temperament compability with EJs than IP:s (mostly because of the extraversion, irrationality isn't really a problem), but I find victim men repulsive sexually. I've had a lot of great discussions with LIEs, but we can't really achieve/work together on anything concrete, and grow easily annoyed at each other if the communication is prolonged. I'm currently with a Te-SLI, and the only problem has been that both would prefer the other to take the initiative for action a bit more thant what is natural. So, activity.

    I used to think I was IEI .. still may be.. so comparing my relationships with LSI vs SEE assuming I'm IEI -- definitely LSI. But then again they're most likely my dual so why am I saying anything hahaha

    SEEs and I can get along, but it does grow boring after a while - there's definitely not enough stimulating conversation there.. it's like we are comfortable with eachother but it's not exciting

    one of the things that make me think esi>eii for myself is that i find Ni polr extremely frustrating. and if i felt stifled and controlled in a relationship with an sli, i wonder how much worse it would be in a relationship with an lse. irrationality is difficult for me to deal with in romantic relationships, but i'm always attracted to Ip types anyway.

    Just looking at my closest friends, I have more semi-duals than activities. I think SEEs find me slightly boring and I not really compliant enough.

    I don't like LSE's lack of Ni. The EJ temperament is nice and goes well with my like of stable communication/knowing what I'm getting etc but Ni PoLr just bugs me pretty quickly. Theyre okay to occassionally do things with but I do not see it lasting more than a few weeks relationship-wise (or even friendship-wise). The LSEs I know I'm okay with at a distance and find their straightforward nature alright, but they're opinions ..ah man... Too black/white.


    ILIs... I like them as well...at a distance. I've never been close with one so Ive no idea how'd get along as friends. I dont like feeling forced to be more outgoing than I am though.. If it's my choice, ya sure. If it's because someone else needs a continuos prodding to do something or interact with me..it would quickly grow tiring and I wouldn't want to have to play a role that isn't how I naturally act to get along with someone.
