    Default Favorite type that's really different from yours

    One of my favorite types is ESTP... I almost always get along with them, they're fucking hilarious & seem to naturally bring out a social side of my personality that I always enjoy but which simply doesn't exist around most people. I can see how a lot of INFPs wouldn't get along with them so great, since they're so crude & unserious & semi-goofy in how they talk & act, but to me it's the best circuit-breaker from any weird mental stuff I might be going thru.

    They have that zany humor I always enjoy, they're obviously the best carousing partners, & they seem like the most innately kind-hearted of all the thinkers despite whatever gross humor they have. As an INFP you feel out of place at first, but what you realize eventually is that the disgusting sex-humor is kind of tidy in a way, it's sort of automatic & shallowly imaginative so if you come back over the top with something truly heinously fucked-up & dark & hilarious, they get a respect for you. Maybe female INFPs would have more trouble with it, but for me it's soooo easy to riff on the general pattern of dirty sex jokes & come up with even worse stuff.

    Admittedly, most of this is about male ESTPs, since I don't think I know many female ones.

    BUT anyway, which of the types that are 'very different' from yours is your favorite?

    I really like ISxJs though I'm usually much more impulsive and eccentric than they are. They make me feel safe, and the intelligent ISxJs tend to be smart in a very "sensible" way that I certainly should be exposed to whenever possible.

    It may be some childhood thing, it could be some "balances my lesser functions" thing, but I feel that some of them speak to some inner hidden part of me.

    I say ISxJs because ESFJs can actually be somewhat like me in their huge displays of emotion, and I have a much more negative reaction to some ESTJs than ISTJs, I don't know why one letter makes so much difference to me.

    Of course it depends on the person. Individual interests and belief systems and level of intelligence are everything. There are ISFJs who make me feel suffocated with their particular morality and ISTJs who bore me to tears.

    Just like there are other ENFPs who I might get along with much less well, because I find them to be flakier than me, or whatever.

    xNFJ. Somehow I'm always drawn to them, and they're drawn to me. Two of my best friends are ENFJs, and my oldest friend (i.e. the friend I've been friends with the longest) is an INFJ.

    It's probably because my mom is INFJ and we're really close.

    How different does a type have to be to qualify as "very" different? I tend to feel fairly similar to INFPs in some ways and ISTPs in some other ways, maybe even ENTPs (more so online than in person). The other types all feel quite different to me. I guess I'd say xNFJs as well. I haven't known very many, but the ones I've met (and even the ones I've sort of gotten to know by hanging around here), give me the impression of being very different in an intriguing and endearing way, and at the same time a good "fit" with me.

    ESxPs can be a lot of fun too, but if they're markedly extraverted I can only take them in small doses.

    ESTPs. I get along with them pretty well. I wouldn't have a long term relationship with one though, as, ime, they seem to lack a monogamic inclination.

    Yeah, I doubt I could be an ESTP woman's boyfriend; in relationships I think you need levels of deeper compatibility. I think ESTPs as people care more overall about friendships than relationships anyway.

    My younger brother & sister are ENFJ, & picturing them hanging w/ INTP people tends to make sense. They're socially sensible but open-minded at the same time, so people with eccentric loner tendencies tend to feel at ease around them.

    I feel the same way as you about really extraverted ESFPs-- they can be so unstoppingly in the moment that I just cant take it after a while. ESTPs are usually a bit calmer.

    I really love male INTJs and male ENFPs... And apparently I attract female ENFJs to myself like zombies to a pipe bomb. xD
    Those who pursue truth must not be arrogant. Just because it can't be proven scientifically, you must not laugh at miracles. You must not deny your eyes the beauty of this world.
