Differences I've noticed involve time-awareness, commitment level regarding plans, etc. I always figured most of my tendencies in these areas were common to 5's, but it seems that the J/P difference is significant (though not necessarily problematic, if identified and handled with understanding) despite the similarity of enneatype.
> Well this is an interesting issue you have brought up. Your girlfriend sounds like a real catch! You should take her to the beach and make love to her in the ocean. If I were you, I would deal with her by making her dress up like a hooker and you could play the cop. INTP women are extremely sexy and fun and revel in making love to their boyfriends, like your girlfriend. That has been my experience anyway. Besides, if you have someone too similar to yourself the magnetic forces might disappear. I have heard of these magnets that are like the strongest in the world. They represent two people in love. Her crazy, sexy tendencies may sometimes drive you crazy, but her magnetic forces will surely pull you in (if you know what I mean). Her P-ness may get on your nerves at times, but you will grow to love her spontaneity and accepting attitude. If you're lucky, she might even let you be her love slave.

Thanks for your advice Mr. M! I will take it to heart. I am not a total J, so hopefully my P-ness won't get on *her* nerves when it pops up. As a 5 I seem to be inclined toward wanting to be someone's "love slave", so maybe I will get lucky in that regard!
