As far as low maintenance of your own type (not necessarily others) the following appears to be a good rule of them.

    I over E. Es need people more often and Is are more self content to be alone/need fewer people. Less work/hassle finding surplus people for own needs for I (especially w internet equivalents that seem to work better w Is than Es).

    S over N. Being in moment tends to be less painful than living in the past or future

    F over T. This one is a close one feelers feel more pain but also feel more happiness in general. Thinkers are rarely truly at peace because the truth can be so illusive where beauty not so much.

    P over J. Js are in the prison of their own judging which outweighs the many conundrums of uncertainty Ps feel. Most of life is a process rather than a conclusion so being comfortable with the process in and of itself tends to give the more a plenty chunks of happiness.
    Yeah, that is a really good answer. And not only because it makes me the happiest type. To be honest though, I am not always happy and if I am not always happy then you other types are not happy even more. And that makes me sad.

    Not relative to type.

    I think I read somewhere that ESXX tend to be the most satisfied in marriages so I'm going to equate that w/ happiness.

    xSFP's

    They're very easy-going and lighthearted (not to be mistaken for shallow and stupid) and it takes a lot to get them down but when/if they do get down they snap out of it as soon as you wave a glow stick in front of their face. lol

    Wow, I know some miserable, depressed SFPs....two in my family actually. My ISFP step-dad's foul moodiness is insufferable and ESFP sister has had TWO nervous breakdowns & constantly fights off depression.

    From my observation though, ESxx types seem the most content with their life circumstances. Maybe in places where Introversion is not seen as a flaw it would be easier to be one, but I think E is a big advantage in navigating life.

    Yeah, that's probably true.

    ESFP. The type pretty much defines the term "party animal."

    It would suck if you're a fun loving ESFP or ENFP though, and then you're not popular for superficial reasons (like maybe cuz of some lifestyle thing that others hate, or people in your area don't think you're attractive). Just a thought. There's always something that can bring even a naturally fun loving person down. Kind of tragic actually :\
