ILE: usually pretty good unless they make socially awkward blunders and don't know or don't care how uncomfortable they are making the people around us. The Jon Stewart-esque types are a hit or miss with me but generally I find ILEs to be interesting and pleasant. If we hit each other's weak points, it's not pretty.
LII: Ok but I find that a lot of what they say about things, especially in criticism, bothers me. They offend me without meaning to and very often. When they point out the lack of logic, from their POV, of my actions or way of thinking, it irks me a lot. Otherwise they're fine at a distance and when we aren't trying to do something together as that usually destroys all harmony really, really fast.
ESE: I don't get them. They are ok but confuse me. I get on better with the Si subtype who are more chill and down to earth and make sense. The Fe subtype strikes me as cray cray and emotionally everywhere. Their attempts to get everyone to do stuff together makes me blanch inwardly and overall I can't help but find them as fake. I think we just confuse each other, but I know I can't ever tell if they are being sincere or not. Us trying to connect is like two paraplegics trying to waltz. It's silly and stupid.
SEI: At a distance I can say I really like them but when we get closer, I can't help but distrust them to not make me look bad or else emotionally manipulate me. They seem nice but too nice. Did I mention I feel they say things that just put me in a bad spot. Though the SEIs here seem really cool. I may be focusing too much on a few isolated cases.
SLE: I can relate to them a lot and feel a lot of sympathy but other times I feel like we really focus on different things. I'm sometimes bewildered by their competitiveness and need to win and have the spot light. I think we are generally kindly towards the other despite the confusion. I find them easy to understand but can focus too much on the complexity of things. Not everything has to be precise or reflect a mechanical understanding to be more than sufficient. I think my burst of randomness and my lack of consistence proves utterly bewildering to them. I also don't fully get the status consciousness and their way of measuring how good something is based on awards, recommendations, and credentials.
IEI: I generally find them really interesting and engaging. The dreamier ones are very alluring. Others make me feel like a million bucks by their smile and eyes. Where there is an attraction, I find myself more gallant. I enjoy cracking them up when I put on an "in your face" attitude. Either we have a lot to talk about and conversations are really interesting or we don't and things sink into a sort of silence that I don't know how to break out of. I feel like they color my world but I don't always know how to playfully respond to the really cutesy Fe at times or just don't feel like emoting back and that sometimes creates discomfort.
EIE: I find them very interesting. To be in their good favor is grand but to have their indignation is horrible. I usually say little around them as I find myself wary of saying something which displeases them. I find their advice to be uplifting, especially when it comes to someone who is older and wiser than me, but find it off putting when they try to fix me if they also have a lot of maturing to do. I prefer to keep a distance, in any case as I find close distance interactions awkward as I sense the frailty in long term communication.
LSI: Generally like them but feel like I need to watch myself. I generally feel vulnerable in their presence but at times feel like they can look after me.
ESI: Easy to talk with but don't find our relations especially insightful or meaningful. It's kind of redundant, our relations, so I like to kind of touch base briefly and leave it at that. I like experiencing things with them, though, and then talking about it afterwards since our after thoughts are pretty compatible. When they get moralistic, though, it can be really off-putting. I find many of them too focused on propriety and like they need to let loose a bit and worry less about being so damn proper. Of course, they wish I was more into that shit. Tough tits. Apparently I can be too impatient for their liking. But most will say I'm downright hilarious but usually there needs to be a third or fourth person to see that side of me.
LIE: Depends. I prefer these relations on the basis of friendship than joint work. I find we have a lot to talk about and that there isn't much awkwardness in talking and establishing an acquaintance. These are some of the people I first become familiar with in a group. Can tire me out, though. I usually prefer to let them do the talking and just respond without adding too much of my own feedback to avoid information overload.
SEE: Usually involves the other person seeing something in me or about me that makes them take notice. Usually it's something that isn't obvious to others. It's like they can latch onto me and see into me. That or we know how to have a crazy awesome time. However, there reaches a point where I feel the need to get away from them. I find being alone with them to be uncomfortable though sometimes if one of us can break through the awkwardness of it, we can spill our deepest thoughts. Sometimes, though, when we do have something to talk about, it is like we talk faster than we can think. It's kinda crazy. It feels like there is no invisible wall, like if our words were objects, that the communication space we share has no gravity. Information flows freely. It's weird.
ILI: Some, especially the meaner ones, put me off. It's like "damn, they are jerks" but then I start talking with them and I'm like "wow, s/he's super nice and helpful." Helpful is probably the first word that comes to mind. They know shit, they understand technical shit. I feel like I can rely on them for that stuff. I trust them enough to talk about really painful things but without feeling the painful emotions. I just tell them some really personal shit and it feels like it's ok. Comforting is a good word. I tend to become more confident and spontaneously playful. Same goes with them. When first meeting one of my friends, he remarked how he didn't understand why he was smiling and laughing for no reason. To be honest, though, I don't feel our relations ever go really deep. Like, we trust each other a lot, but it's nothing intense. I love doing stuff with them, though. I remember being in London and having difficulties making the most of the time with LII and ESI and wishing an ILI friend of mine was with me, feeling it would just come together more organically and would be so much more fun. This was way before I self-typed as I do now. In any case, I find them cute, easy to feel deep affection for. I only get frustrated, really, when I can't tell how they feel or if they care at all.
SLI: Love their artwork and style. I find them to be nice people, easy to be around, but otherwise boring. Usually ends up being a nod and smile relationship. I feel like I have to tone myself down around them instead of just saying abrasive but funny shit.
IEE: Easy to talk with, interesting, but I can get impatient in joint tasks when it comes to going from brainstorming to the actual activity. Or I don't agree with their suggestions for me to add more variety for the sake of variety, especially when my more direct and simplistic style connects better.
LSE: Alright, I guess. Have had a lot of negative experiences but on the other hand, I realize I take their advice for granted. A lot of what they say is a no brainer, to me, and feels like "no shit, Sherlock, quit treating me like I'm a five year old moron" but later I find myself using old advice in a current situation. I feel like they take life too slowly. I don't appreciate them trying to get me to slow down or judging me when I let loose and say cutting shit. I think they take me way too literally and need to not do that. Oh, and quit trying to help me so much. I can figure things out on my own, too, even if I have to do a little trial by error.
EII: I find their way of approaching life to be stifling but on the other hand, I admire their dedication and their capability of producing top quality work. They can be very inspiring to me and to others, and how they can bring out the best work in a group is what impresses me the most. I feel a bit awkward around them, though. Sometimes I feel like I put them off, like I come off as too full of myself, too aggressive, and feel like I say things that intimidate them and I don't understand it. Can be sneaky and I do not appreciate it when they put people down behind their backs, especially when they are frustrated by the other person's lack of fastidiousness but can't just confront them and talk about it without making a big to do about doing a few things differently. I feel like they can have too high standards that puts me off, initially, until I realize it's actually doable.
