I don't think it's really type-related ... but I'm not sure? I knew one person who was rather polyamorous who I think is IEE.what do you think of this and do you think it is type related to be open for polyamory? Do you think you could accept it? Why/why not? Would it be easier to accept being the person with two lovers or the person who shares the partner with another?
I've thought a lot about polyamory and I think that I have the clear, unavoidable, bottom line that I could only be with one person. I've imagined different scenarios... but... I don't think it would work for me. I don't have a problem with polyamory itself though or anything. I just seem to be emotionally only able to tie that deeply with one person... etc. And after searching myself a long time, I think that it seems this part of me is rather fixed in my nature, whereas a great many other things are easily shiftable and movable (malleable). Oh, also I couldn't be with someone who's with multiple partners.
As a side note, when I was reading Seven Years in Tibet, it was interesting that one wife and two husbands was very common there because there were significantly more men there than women (or so it said). And I think that definitely some of this can adapt to cultural practice, norms, population, etc. With the IEE I mentioned it was more a case of falling in love with multiple people at the same time and not being able to sort his feelings... and preferring to not have to in a sort of "let it be" way.
I only fall in love with one person at a time, however (at least so far). And I don't fall in love easily either. Anyway, if I were ever to fall in love with more than one person, then I don't know what would happen...
basically agree.I think polyamory probably isn't related to type, but to being open for untraditional choices, when that's what life offers you. I guess some types might be more open for that than others, though. And I think I've read somewhere that jealousy is more typical of some types than others.
ETA: oh, actually, though it could be related to being "traditional" in some cases, i think that also it's about just how one feels inside.
