I have had a lot of trouble finding an answer on this, mainly because searching for import obviously has far more results for the other meaning.
The few results I have found always give examples of the word "import" in the context "of import". For example; He was a man of import; It was of great import that they arrive on time. etc.
I realise that import could be considered archaic, but can it be used without the word "of"?
For example; he was obsessed with his own import; He was attracted by her import. etc.
