    Default What has been your most fulfilling relationship thus far?

    I know in THEORY, your dual is supposed to provide the best and most fulfilling relationship, but in your EXPERIENCE what has been your most fulfilling relationship in life thus far?

    I haven't had much interactions with my duals yet in life, so for me I'd have to say it was a fellow IEI/INFp, and believe it or not my conflictor, ESTj.

    number one with my semi-dual potentially dual best friend.
    after that with another female IEI, then another female IEI.

    i've dated one dual but it was very messy and he was very unhealthy. he was a blast to be with but had too many emotional problems and didn't trust me at all, etc

    Beta interrelations, all four covered by friendships and love partnerings, despite my particular type: mirror, identity, duality, and activity. These have been my most important, intimate, supportive, and transformative relationships.

    Also good/important, depending on my type: semi-duality, benefit, look-alike.

    Problematic: being supervised, and opposite-quadra relations.

    Definitely definitely definitely my EIE husband. I don't have to worry about offending him, he always lets me know how he feels about things, communication is 100% open and unreserved, his energy level compliments mine perfectly.... I could go on and on.

    My longest and closest friendship is with an ILI, and while there have been rough patches and our communication is quite sporadic, overall it is quite fulfilling. (And she's pretty much the only person I've managed to stay in contact with over the years. I'm horrible at staying in touch with people.)
    Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

    Romantic:

    Don't know about this Dual business, but dual, SLE. He annoys me, he challenges me, his company makes me become more balanced, I adore him and his strengths. We don't always get each other, but we always know how to react to each other.

    Most fulfilling was with a hyper smart IEI girl. Should have married her, tbh.

    Fulfilling? My ILE best friend. I genuinely love him, he and my mum are the two people I'd say I trust completely, which is nice for me. The person who's made me grow the most was another ILE, also a very good friend.

    Ne is good for me because it seems to come up with this ideal image of who I am, but an ideal that is wholly liveable

    Dual husband. After that, I had a semi-dual boyfriend once upon a time I was quite fond of. He'd probably be #2.

    No, it's not about that at all. It's about lasting that long... at your age... sounds like fiction.

    Best feeling of mutual psychological understanding/"oneness" - identical

    Best feeling of safety/security, being valued for my natural abilities - dual

    It's like if I explain what's going on in my head to a fellow IEI, they'll get it and share their insights, while a dual would laugh and marvel at how my strange mind works and what a unique snowflake I am. Both are nice in different ways but it's hard to say which I'd prefer at any one time.
