I also agree that gender is an important issue, women and male ENTJs can be very different in dating preferences.These relations can normally bring a feeling of satisfaction from interaction with an equal and not boring partner. Its fascinating, but I don’t really understand it completely.Fi as a mental process is the flow of judgements on perceptions personal ideals or feeling of right and wrong.Fi strives for integrity and consistency in it’s ideals.Further discussion revealed that we react very differently to memories.I was talking about how something like music or something like a photograph can remind me how I at the time I associated related memories, but he said that to remember how he felt, he would have to ‘reload his premises’ from that time - i.e.In other words, both partners are likely to think that the other cares about the wrong things, at the wrong times, and misallocates emotional impact.
