Thank you very much for the well wishes Valdyr. You post wasn't boring, Liz. I'm thrilled people starting replying, I was worried this thread was going to sink. This is a topic I want to discuss, so thank you.
Ptarmigan, thank you also. And I figured at the very least my sentimentality would't offend anyone on this forum, I'm glad it is even appreciated by some.

Most NPs enjoy reading, which serves as one way they can engage in Ne dialogue in this case, with the writer. Hence, when two NPs are paired in a relationship, they typically enjoy discussing new ideas they gleaned from print or other media. This can serve as a wonderful means of connecting with each other in the forum of ideas.

In other words, there may be such a thing as too much typological similarity in a relationship. The risk, of course, is that NPs may harbor negative or inaccurate judgments about their partner without opening up those sentiments to dialogue.
