The word "needy" has a negative connotation, but I never really understood why. Is it so wrong to have needs and to express those needs? While I'm not advocating for codependence over independence, I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting affirmation and support, especially when you're in a relationship. There are the Myers-Briggs personality types who like attention from their partners on a daily basis because for them, relationships are partnerships. They enjoy compliments, and regular date nights, and getting memes sent to them in the middle of the day. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Myers-Briggs types who prefer attentive partners don't necessarily rely on their SOs for everything. However, if their boo is too busy to eat dinner with them a few times a week or send a good morning text, these types are more likely than others to feel let down. They also tend to be judging types rather than perceiving types, which means they value predictability over spontaneity. Not sure what your type is? Take the personality test to find out. You may be one of the Myers-Briggs personality types who prefers "we-time" to "me-time," and you know what? That A-OK in my book.
