    Default Best use of every intertype relationship

    We tend to look at socionics relations through our love glasses. Unfortunately this makes dual the only relationship that seems the best.

    However every intertype relationship will be the best relation for a certain kind of environment. So I would like to know what you think.

    Here's my incomplete list, maybe you smart asses can complete it.

    Best love partner: Dual
    Best teacher: Identical
    Best close friend: Mirror
    Best backup guy during a bar fight: Supervisee?
    Best warbuddy: Business
    Best ....

    I've left out Supervisee, because I don't really know what they are specifically "best" for, haha.

    (I've thought of "Submissive"/Slave, but ... it did not feel good to me, haha.)

    Can't imagine an ILE backing me up in a barfight, but I've had them help me troll people before, and they're masters at that.

    dual: best communication, best supporter (when healthy)
    identical: best reference for personal growth and happiness
    activity: best hook-ups
    mirror: best friend
    semi-dual
    : best at giving tough love
    kindred: best at providing a reality check
    benefactor: best co-worker
    supervisor: best at motivating and inspiring (from afar)
    conflictor: best external point of reference (if I can do what they do half as well, I'm probably doing all right)
    quasi: best for shooting the shit
    super-ego: best teammate
    extinguishment: best auntie/uncle
    mirage: best nurse
    beneficiary: second-best hookup lmao
    business: best child
    supervisee: best mindless entertainment
    someday the grapes will be wine
    and someday you will be mine

    Best person for just hanging out and having fun: Activity

    Best person for strengthening your understanding on something: Mirror

    Best person for making you a stronger person overall: Conflict (if you live to tell about it).

    I resonate with this. I worked under an SLE for 9 summers. How he trained me and expected me to behave and react to situations definitely has made me stronger in some ways, or at least given me skills and habits I would not have otherwise even considered having.

    yes i can also agree, conflictor can learn you stuff and make you a stronger person. it's probably the most underrated relationship because of the conflict at really close distance.

    My advice at this point: Okay, learn from your Conflict relation, grow stronger, but then GET THE HELL AWAY FROM THEM.
    Sorry for that dramatic "exclamation", but... being dependent on my Conflictor, I am so tired of it. It is so grueling. Whenever you are going through some rough patch, them being around makes it 1000x times worse. You grow for a while, everything goes well, but then their critique sabotages your entire growth, and you feel like you are back at square 1. It is bad.

    Good point, you are right, they build parts of you, but break others. Their critique yes. pfff, i don't think that i am so critical at them as they are towards me btw.

    I have noticed Conflict seems to be the worst for the introverts. Probably because extroverted IE get expressed more "openly, tangibly", if that makes sense.
    Several extroverts don't report Conflict to be as bad, or they are simply not always as aware of it.

    @Sol I tried to keep you out of trouble but you are digging your own cell. I can't make anyone do anything. I can only remind you to be respectful and guilt you.
