    so this theory actually makes everyones odds go down!

    it was hard enough when said ENTJ knew he needed to find ENFP or ENTP, (1/8 of the types) and now i need to find what would only be 1/16 (ENfp or ENtp) of that 1/8 pool?! (someone check my math)

    and thats not even taking into account that most of the population is SJ and SP!

    eNtj with INFP, ENtj with ENFP or ENTj with ENTP etc could all fit into this theory as being the "best" match.
    I totally agree. I've never really found the idea of an ENTJ very enticing, whereas with Lemons' theory, I'd be best paired with an ISFJ/INFJ, which I actually find much more appealing. Of course, this is all based off of the stereotypes for the different profiles; never know who I'll find "perfect" five years from now.

    What I like best is that it takes into account different preferences for different people, instead of relying on the stereotypes for each profile. However, some people may have a strong inclination towards, lets say "feeling", but may have an appreciation for a strong inclination towards "thinking" in their partner, which wouldn't work in Lemons' theory. But, there are exceptions to everything, and I personally find this theory fascinating.

    Would it really be that fun if it were easy?

    Correct.

    In any case it's just a theory. Completely harmless

    What if 3/4 of the preferences are pretty strong? Does the same still apply? If so, I believe my ideal would be INTJ.

    I actually had a sorta kinda relationship with an INTJ male in high school, and I found we often got stuck in the same rut that I find myself stuck in with my female INTJ friends - we tend to get stuck snarking about virtually everything. It's a little too much cynicism and tends to put me in an immature "everything sucks!" mood after too much time together. Still, I've been attracted to male INTJs quite a few times; I tend to be interested in INTJs, ENTPs, and especially INFPs.

    Maybe you're hanging out with a lot of NTs.
