  1. Don't have any sisters, and my girlfriend's parents generally speaking don't mind me. That said, I wonder if this is reversed for mothers? EDIT: The article about emotional word use doesn't say much about favorable treatment.
  2. How does this suggest intelligence? Sorry for joining the dogpile, by the way.
  3. Admittedly, the chefosexuality example muddied the waters quite a bit. However, even if you remove the "to the exclusion of all else" bit, you have pretty solid grounds for a definition. For instance, a heterosexual man or woman will not bang any man/woman they come across, although they are clearly more likely to bang the opposite sex than the same sex. A hypothetical "chefosexual" might not date all chefs, but would definitely not date a non-chef, and, for max comparison with sapiosexuality, would weight the scale "physical attractiveness" as less important than "chefing skills", such that a 5 and a 10 in the looks department with equal chefing skills would have the same chances (though if you go below, say, 3 it's still going to matter even though it's not weighted as highly). I might be willing to say it's more a fetish than an orientation, though. However... I hate to break it to you, but people like that do exist. Maybe not for security, but maybe the security turn-on just wasn't as pressing a social problem.

  4. Scorp's post, for reference. Bold is a goalpost shift, probably. "Noticing and appreciating" is not the same as being sexually aroused by. Unless your dick has hardened to a man who clearly presented as such, you're making a false comparison here. If you aren't, and you have actually been sexually attracted to those traits, I think the question is one of degree. If it's like a once in a blue moon thing, then kinsey scale rules apply and you're basically hetero. If it's more frequent, sorry to break this to you but you are bisexual. Was gonna address the other things in this post, but eagleseven replied so it'll have to be separate. Sorry about that.
  5. Male, non-sapiosexual here who doesn't seem to have the knee-jerk reaction to sapiosexuality others have. The arguments for its non-existence have been pretty shitty so far, though the arguments for it being deserving of label status seem a little off given that I've seen one chart at least show that preference for intelligence is basically the preference of many women. "Female sexuality" might be better.
  6. *eyes socionics Dual Theory* *looks back to everyone*
  7. Understanding other preferences as having value, possibly.
  8. What would I/others have to give you for an explanation of said mysteries? I ask because I enjoy hearing about myself. Also, with regards to forum subjects, I'd like to be here more often for deep discussions, which do go through my mind enough that I could start something in a different environment, but I find it harder to focus online? At least lately. ...... added to this post 2 minutes later: What if I do it subtly enough that you don't find it that annoying?
  9. This has been said about me also, though only in a romantic context. Stealing it anyway. Also.... Yeah, that's about it. If I ever date other people maybe more will surface.
  10. Perhaps it's the taste of the inside of my current partner's mouth, but it might also be the taste of the inside of all mouths. Either way, it kind of ruins the experience for me, though I'm not sure of how it affects the neurochemistry of it. Kissing is generally okay to excellent, depending on location and mood.
  11. Staying on the righteous/healthy path might sometimes require help, and asking for help may at times require telling people why you need it. Even having the audience who will judge you for failing to follow through can sometimes be a motivator. Wait, I'm a dumbass. Though, since I can't delete this, I'll just add that overcoming=/=overcoming so thoroughly that nothing at all could cause you to backslide.
  12. Zeus, King of the Gods!!!! King of the gods, ruler of Mount Olympus, and god of the sky, weather, thunder, lightning, law, order, and justice. He is the youngest son of Cronus and Rhea. He overthrew Cronus and gained the sovereignty of heaven for himself. In art he is depicted as a regal, mature man with a sturdy figure and dark beard. His usual attributes are the royal scepter and the lightning bolt. His sacred animals include the eagle and the bull. His Roman counterpart is Jupiter, also known as Jove.
  13. Non-INTJ who identifies with 2 and 5 here. The most. On the INTJ list. On my list, uh...*looks again* level 3.
  14. My assumption has been that the majority of people who read the stuff aren't intending to apply it literally--more to translate it into a modern business-world context. I haven't read, so I can't say if that's any better or not, but it is worth noting.
