    Default Super-ego relationship description from socion.info

    From: http://socion.info/superego.html

    A clear explanation of Super-ego releations
    By Reuben McNew [ENTp]

    Usually Super-ego partners express interest in each other’s behaviors, and may be at first attracted. Even though partners may not have much in common, they can feel at awe in light of their own sources of confidence, and may seem a bit intrigued by each other. They can often be impressed in the fact that they each have such unique strengths and that each partner is able to do things in ways that are very difficult and complicated for the other; this occurs entirely in that one partner's strongest strengths are always the other's weakest weaknesses. Wherever one partner draws their confidence, the other feels most unconfident.

    Though it would seem as though partners could support and care for each other, Super-ego Partners typically lack an ability to appropriate a balancing out of their own confidences and may display their strength and weaknesses at different intervals. For example, when two super-ego partners meet, only one may completely manage to display his or her confident side, while the other displays his or her weak side. Super-ego partners often remain on a close even-footing to the other, but not totally; one of them usually manifest a slight superiority to the other. Because of this, one of the partners may continually supplicate, place the other on a pedestal, or continually and persistently cut the other partner down. One partner may even go out of his or her way to initially point out weakness, or may pick on specific habits and behaviors of the other partner, or may chastise him or her in some way; others may appear needy or clingy.

    In Super-ego partners of opposite sex relations, an initial attraction may develop. However, their actual interest towards each other can be sporadic and displayed at different points in time. One partner approaches the other, and he or she appears distant. The other partner approaches the other, and he or she appears distant. This odd behavioral cycle displayed among Super-ego partners could confuse observers, who may just simply determine the partners fickle and unable to make up their minds about each other. The constant acceptation and rejection may even make the partners themselves wonder where they stand, and where their interest and motivation lies; opposite sex partners usually end up distaining each other.

    This strange cycle presented in Super-ego relations may initially seem harmless enough to both partners for a brief period of time, but only while partners remain unfamiliar to each other. When a personal understanding develops, friction usually envelopes the relationship. When this occurs, Super-ego partners eventually tire of each other and part ways.

    ecause of this, one of the partners may continually supplicate, place the other on a pedestal, or continually and persistently cut the other partner down. One partner may even go out of his or her way to initially point out weakness, or may pick on specific habits and behaviors of the other partner, or may chastise him or her in some way; others may appear needy or clingy.
    I think there's a lot of truth to this. I believe ISTP is my super-ego type as I tend to have both a hard time feeling on equal footing with them and am amazed by people who have a lot of mechanical skill. And both of us being introverts, they can be hard to approach and I can sense they feel the same about me. I could give a lot of examples, but they tend to really show up my weaknesses even though I don't think they're really consciously aware of it. That part of your description about putting them on a pedestal and person feeling slightly inferior or superior to the other really rang a bell for me.

    Yeah, I based the whole description on an ESFp girl that was interested in me once. The description is pretty much word for word on how our relationship travelled along, all the way to the point to where we where she would supplicate towards me and then make fun of the way I behaved. I sort of got sick of the way we were treating each other and stopped seeing her, she appeared to feel the same way.

    Really? I guess taking that she was INFp that convinces me your are ISTp ... because all of the relationships I have had with people of diffrent types all also line up with me being ENTp ..

    By the way, all of the relationship descriptions I wrote on the http://socion.info website are based on my own personal experiences, so they are atleast as accurate as when an ENTp is involved in the relationship. I am just not sure how accurate they are for every type, which is why it always make me glad to hear people of other types saying they have experienced the same type of stuff with the relationships.

    Oddly enough I have little interaction with mine. I usually avoid people that bore me. Okay that sounds arrogant.. and it is =/
