    • I haven't dated an INFJ, but one of my best friends is one. I personally think the INFJ isn't a type that I could handle at my current level of maturity. The love of an INFJ is so tender and tepid. I prefer the intensity of an INTJ.

    • I'm beyond frustrated at the slim prospects of finding an INFJ who is both eligible and attractive to me..... They are so rare! I need to find some sort of INFJ meetup in my area. Maybe I'll start one and make it my dating pool? Haha.

    • I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting a couple of INFJ's but I find INTJ's more my type for some odd reason. I love a reserved and calculated woman.

    • Not dated, but one of my best friends is INFJ. The conversation is very intuitive and flows very naturally.

    • There is this article i read that was really insightful.

      http://infj.tribe.net/thread/ed318644-55cc-4346-ba69-6b3a9e30611a

      I have direct experience with an INFJ. She is a co-worker of mine and we went on several dates. But because of work, we found it hard to take it any further. But the chemistry and communication was magical.

      Has any else felt the same?

    • I confess, the ENTP is one of my favorite types.. second only to the INFP, but isn't this thread a little.. too self-serving?

      I mean, 'Look how awesome my type is!' pretty much translates directly into 'Tell me how awesome I am!' and I don't know.. that's not an endearing quality regardless of type.

    • In the beginning, there was boredom, routine and "blahhh". Then a great alchemist impregnated a pegasus and BLAMMMM!!!! ENTP was born!

    • I am glad that the unintelligible are too dismissive to find this site. However, I am equally saddened when I think that there are others out there who feel and think as we do who don't know about this site.

    • ENTP
      Extraverted Intuition with Thinking

      People with ENTP preferences are ingenious innovators who always see new possibilities and new ways of doing things. They have a lot of imagination and initiative for starting projects and a lot of impulsive energy for carrying them out. They are sure of the worth of their inspirations and tireless with the problems involved.They are stimulated by difficulties and most ingenious in solving them.They enjoy feeling competent in a variety of areas and value this in others as well.

      They are extremely perceptive about the attitudes of other people, and can use this knowledge to win support for their projects. They aim to understand rather than to judge people. Their energy comes from a succession of new interests and their world is full of possible projects.They may be interested in so many different things that they have difficulty focusing. Their thinking can then help them select projects by supplying some analysis and constructive criticism of their inspirations, and thus add depth to the insights supplied by their intuition. Their use of thinking also makes ENTPs rather objective
      in their approach to their current project and to the people in their lives.
      ENTPs are not likely to stay in any occupation that does not provide many new challenges.With talent, they can be inventors, scientists, journalists, troubleshooters, marketers, promoters, computer analysts, or almost anything that it interests them to be.
      A difficulty for people with ENTP preferences is that they hate uninspired routine and find it remarkably hard to apply themselves to sometimes necessary detail unconnected with any major interest.Worse yet, they may get bored with their own projects as soon as the major problems have been solved or the initial challenge has been met.They need to learn
      to follow through, but are happiest and most effective in jobs that permit one project after another, with somebody else taking over as soon as the situation is well in hand.

      Because ENTPs are always being drawn to the exciting challenges of new possibilities, it is essential that they develop their judgment. If their judgment is undeveloped, they may commit themselves to ill-chosen projects, fail to finish anything, and squander their inspirations on uncompleted tasks.

    • ENTP + ISTJ = Herp-a-Derp Sandwich with cheese. Boring!!!!

    • November 4, 2013 1:16:56 PM PST
    • I'm not entirely sure if he was ISTP (adventurous, quiet, imaginative, practical, independent, sweet and very interesting) but it was the best match an ENTP girl could want. A delight to date :)

    • Just got off a relationship with an ISTJ...I would summarise with: better as friends. I thought the relationship had potential because one of my best friend is ISTJ also. But in dating scenario a lot more than Ne ; Si interaction must come into play... Your domInant Ne joker might annoy her when she's trying to take care of business and I just find her Si to be the very definition of boring....our verbal interaction mostly consists of just me making jokes and her giggling at them... Which is fine except when her Te pops up occasionally before me and I just refuse to tolerate such behaviours...for a while she had to contain her Te in front of me but that would come out again...eventually. And in those moments she would call my Ti a "robot" or "cold blooded" because I would ignore her pleas for my lack of Fi... I would occasionally use my fe to compensate but doing so with Fi expectations insults my fe and I can only express so much warm mushy feeling at one time...but wow, yeah I wrote a lot. I we still talk about trivial things and still keep in contact despite a somewhat messy breakup. But by no means talk my word for it..everyone is different and yours just might work! Good luck.

    • I find that INFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, INTP, and INTJ are all suitable for an ENTP. As to which is the best....I think it depends on the individual.

    • ISTP (maybe ISFP) seems like the best type to date - we can get them to open up bit and if you find the right one they are endlessly interesting to observe. They also seem to not mind having evil genius side-kicks who can pad out their 'not all that well thought' through impulsive and exciting plans. I like how they're action orientated and good at doing stuff because it gets me to actually move away from the concept phase... They're not big on following the system (possibly appealing to our inner anarchists) but they are also fairly 'stable' which is sometimes nice to have in a partner. They do need a lot of space (and enforce this) but this helps me to remember and focus on my own projects and priorities. Interestingly the one I knew was the most romantic guy I had ever dated simply because instead of doing cheesy OTT stuff he would just sometimes do something spontaneous and unexpected.

    • I'm searching for an intelligent Fe-user. Intuitiveness is not a must, a good amount of brains is though.

      I know a lot of people are put off by the percieved bossiness of heavy Fe-users but honestly i want that. At least they show they care, if they do.

    • I think that there are a number of factors that range from compatibility, to chemistry, to comparative values, to converged goals, and to complimentary characteristics. There are multiple personality theories and most of them deal with only a few of these qualities, so finding a "type" through personalities is very difficult. MBTI focuses on cognitive functions and grapples with the idea of how people think differently, while the instinct theory is founded more towards values and perceived needs.

      But to answer the question, I have found that the types that I am compatible with are usually based upon their openness and acceptability. They also must not lack the capacity to care for the needs of others, but that need is hardly unique.

    • October 2, 2012 7:59:03 PM PDT
    • Well, according to the site its your instincts that matter far more. That said, the only steadfast rule about MBTI I've found is that Intuitives are better with Intuitives and Sensorials are better with Sensorials.

    • I dont usually get dates, but when I do, I dont know how to type them anyway. XD
