    Default Non-type related preferences

    What are some characteristics or talents would you prefer in a companion, not related to type?

    These could be educational related, socially related or hobby related. You may not be same psychologically today as you might be in 10 years (or maybe you will be). Take your best guesses here.

    Basically this, her body, her face, her voice, her attitude, I love it.
    The Barnum or Forer effect is the tendency for people to judge that general, universally valid statements about personality are actually specific descriptions of their own personalities. A "universally valid" statement is one that is true of everyone—or, more likely, nearly everyone. It is not known why people tend to make such misjudgments, but the effect has been experimentally reproduced.

    The psychologist Paul Meehl named this fallacy "the P.T. Barnum effect" because Barnum built his circus and dime museum on the principle of having something for everyone. It is also called "the Forer effect" after its discoverer, the psychologist Bertram R. Forer, who modestly dubbed it "the fallacy of personal validation".

    LOL I didn't think it would be blow up to wallpaper size.

    Extroverted, assertive, active, good at cooking and loves to do it, likes to go out and take me on adventures, good at fixing things, intense, loves to profess his love to me, romantic, good dancer/singer, likes to play a sport, dresses nicely, likes the same music as me, likes to plan but won't try to trap me in plans. That's all I can think about for now.

    Rather than people who have it together all the time, I like people who make obvious mistakes and need a lot of “help”.

    Normal and simple (in the best sense of the word), good sense of self, but no exaggerated self confidence. Nice and overall healthy. Engaged in the world and life in a balanced way.
    The decisive thing is not the reality of the object, but the reality of the subjective factor, i.e. the primordial images, which in their totality represent a psychic mirror-world. It is a mirror, however, with the peculiar capacity of representing the present contents of consciousness not in their known and customary form but in a certain sense sub specie aeternitatis, somewhat as a million-year old consciousness might see them.

    Tries to be nice, but.....

    Upfront bishiness > low key bishiness

    Prefers to argue > prefers to say nothing

    Judgmental > no standards

    Honest > pretends/lies

    Fair > bias

    Surprised nobody mentioned a love for fried chicken being a must or that their ideal companion's B-O be the smell of ocean water.

    meh I don't know how to answer these things... things I like in people are probably stereotypical SLE stuff I think, so asking me to not make it 'type related' is also in a weird way asking me to not be genuine.

    I want them to be perverted, but understand morality, boundaries/limits as well
    I want them to be bad-ass- but also kind
    I want to them to have street smarts, but also book smarts
    I want them to have a big dick- but. No, no but there. Just have a big dick.

    Shares my core beliefs. Outgoing, assertive, funny, and complimentary. At least decently intelligent. Works hard in regard to his education or career but doesn't allow it to consume his life. Cares about physical fitness and would work out with me. Tall, lean, and has short/medium-length hair.
