Is it typical for IEE's to spill their guts to other IEE's? What type is the most likely to be the confidant of the IEE?
Lately, I believe I am an IEE again, but whenever I meet another one, it begins with us bonding over interests and ideas, and then ends with them talking about their feelings with me. All. The. Time. EII's do this to me too, but they're totally charming about it! They try leading into the emotional talk, and they can talk a little bit about what they're feeling, and then go back into non-feelings talk or fun. Come to think of it, EII may be the type that I am most likely to talk about my feelings with!
With the IEE's I know, though, they just come on full force, "This is how I'm feeling. Problems problems problems!" and it sucks because what I felt our friendship was established on, shared interests and ideas and lighthearted fun, becomes ruined now that I have to be the "emotional confidant."
Maybe it's not type related, I'm just usually extremely nice to people I've just met and I do honestly like it that people feel like they can trust me enough to share these personal things with, I just don't like it when it becomes a pattern.
Does anybody know what I'm talking about?
