If you had to choose a marriage partner...which of the three relationships would you prefer that are listed below? I think these are the best possible matches available and yet each has a downfall and decide which one you could put up with for the next 50 years...post your opinion.
a.(Myers Briggs pedagogue or cohort depending on type) Illusory relations - Mirage - Opposites attract. Their dominant function is well matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by the opposite bent of the same letter. Both have something to teach the other about their subject of interest. They enjoy the lesson. They share ideas well and are true mindmates.
Downfall: After the mirage wears off, the relationship no longer feels perfect and you start to see weaknesses and argue more. This doesn't mean you are any less compatible, it just means that your relationship may not be the most peaceful one.
b. (Myers Briggs Contrast relationship) Contrary relations - Extinguishment -Opposites attract. Their dominant function is well matched with a partner whose personality is dominated by the opposite bent of the same letter. Both are confident in the same areas so they strengthen one another's ego. This relationship is great for healing when insecure and unsure of yourself. There are hardly any differences of opinion or argument in this peaceful relationship. So they both have the same focus on life and they accept each other as they are. This is the option to choose if you want to be the couple that has been together ten years without a single argument and little to no resentment or hidden angst either.
Downfall: This combination is not the most passionate one and can sometimes get boring. It can also get stuck in a rut because it does not expect either one to change.
c. (Myers Briggs Supplement relationship) Relations of activity - Activation -Best friends and lovers. Their primary function Fe is your tertiary function and your primary function Ne is their tertiary function so both will become a better person when together because they can help to strengthen each others weaknesses. This is a relatively peaceful relationship that encourages more than it degrades as you both strengthen your weaknesses just by being together. You are never bored together and fights end passionately with a deeper love and appreciation for each other. This match brings out your inner child and you will laugh more than you ever have in your life because it is very easy to have fun together. This connection does not lack in passion by any means. True soulmates of the heart!
Downfall: This relationship can leave you feeling like you are constantly improving but that may make you insecure like you are never good enough the way you are and at time when you need healing, this could be detrimental to your self esteem.
And in case you are wondering...here is a list of each of these relationships by type so you don't have to look elsewhere to find out who your favorite of the above matches is...so find your type below and it will outline a-c from above. (I have already adjusted the types to fit Myers Briggs from Socionics so just look for your Myers Briggs type.)
***DISCLAIMER- Generally, ENFP's, ENTJ's, ESTJ's, and ESFP's do not like their Supplement option C. The differences are too great.***
