A split-attraction-model term/affix for specifying emotional/non-appearance-based attraction and/or orientation (relative to genders and gender-based presentations exclusively). This can be affixed to any orientation term, to create terms such as faerebi-oriented (non-appearance-based or emotional attraction to multiple genders/people of a variety of genders), mentaurian (ment+aurian, a term for NINgender+FINgender+MINgender people emotionally attracted to MINgender and FINgender people), mentavincian (emotional-attraction-wise MLM), and many others. The term faer-/faere- comes from the Sindarin (a Tolkien Elvish language) term for the soul or spirit, while ment-/menta- comes from a shortening of the word mental.
