    Default Functions and MBTI types getting along

    I was just thinking about how I naturally seem to like some personality types more than others. My strongest functions are definitely Ne, Fi, Fe and Ni. It seems that I get along best with people who have one of the mentioned functions as their dominant or auxiliary function. I do seem to understand somehow naturally also dominant Se people because of my long experience with one of them. .

    So I put MBTI types in order regarding how much similar functions we have or how well we seem to connect.

    ENFP: NeFiTeSi NiFeTiSe
    ENTP: NeTiFeSi NiTeFiSe

    INFP: FiNeSiTe FeNiSeTi
    ENFJ: FeNiSeTi FiNeSiTe
    INFJ: NiFeTiSe NeFiTeSi

    ISFP: FiSeNiTe FeSiNeTi
    ESFJ: FeSiNeTi FiSeNiTe

    ISFJ: SiFeTiNe SeFiTeNi
    ESFP: SeFiTeNi SiFeTiNe
    ENTJ: TeNiSeFi TiNeSiFe

    INTP: TiNeFeSi TeNiSeFi
    INTJ: NiTeFiSe NeTiFeSi

    ESTP: SeTiFeNi SiTeFiNe
    ISTP: TiSeNiFe TeSiNeFi

    ISTJ: SiTeFiNe SeTiFeNi
    ESTJ: TeSiNeFi TiSeNiFe

    Any comments/thoughts?

    There are a few of us I/ENFJs on INFPgc. Let's just say that the dynamics can get very... interesting at times

    Maybe lots of NF's in a group can be trouble (did you mean that?) but one to one it usually works.

    In experience, I find the model of type and agreement to work, I dunno, half the time. On the other hand, one of my favorite teachers was an ISTJ, and I was friends in high school with an _STP. For me, I like to say La dee da, that part of the theory doesn't work a lot of the time.

    I find matching interaction styles is more relevant than functions for me. I get along very well with other "chart-the course" people and tend to clash (typically) with "in-charge" people, while having the least in common with "behind-the-scenes" people.

    Your right. Me too. Just wondered it that "theory" could work!

    You're going to hate me for this. I know what I'm about to say is not needed, but I can't help myself.

    Isn't it Ti, Ne, Si, Fe?

    There, I said it. I'm sorry. I've ruined this thread for everyone.

    I'll get me coat.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    I don't hate anybody for noticing mistakes that I make .
    I'm only human and not perfect in any way.

    I know you've spoken of that being your experience, and I admit I've had some frustrations at times as well, but my personal experience of INFP's is exceptionally positive.

    I think in recollecting my past friendships I am most drawn to other INFJ's, INFP's, ENFP's, and the occasional INTP. I've found some superficial enjoyment in the company of those I've guessed to be ISFJ's, ISFP's, and a possible ESFP. I generally manage to find common ground with most anyone, but this seems to cover where I'm most drawn in relationships.

    My strongest functions are Ni, Ne, Fi, and Fe. That seems to be reflected in those I find the most enjoyable relations with. I suppose the next tier would be those I share some form of feeling judgement with even if lacking the N component. They tend to warm my heart with their caring for others.

    Not sure I'd concurr with the whole "getting along" idea. I have two best mates, one is an ENFP and the other is an ENFJ. Go figure.

    The INTJ I know I wouldn't say I get on with all that well, he's too competitive and argumentative for that to work, though I could see him clicking with an ENTP.

    I do tend to click with the thinking of NTs but in practice I've found that it's the NFs who I tend to get on with better as I just can't be bothered to try and keep an NTs mind focused on whatever it is we are doing. I just let them wander off and back again.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
