I remember a few years back on PersonalityNation (when it still existed) someone had posted a few journal publications that studied exactly this. I wish I could find it, but I can't seem to. Either way it compared the ease of conversation, number of words said, and overall feeling each pair had (each type combination was set), and there was a pattern between which types matched best with others.
That said, I am not entirely sure I agree with the pairings the article you linked proposed. It makes sense on paper, but I wonder if it works well in practice. That and not everyone is going always fit in with it enough. With me anyway, the two main types I get irritated by the most do not fit these patterns.
MBTI: ExxJ tetramer Functions: Fe > Te > Ni > Se > Si > Ti > Fi > Ne
Enneagram: 1w2 - 3w4 - 6w5 (The Taskmaster) | sp/so Socionics: β-E dimer | - Big 5: slOaI Temperament: Choleric/Melancholic Alignment: Lawful Neutral External Perception:Nohari and Johari
Socionics compatibility behaves according to fluidity of communication. However, some things are better left not understood in the case that two individuals are compatible but are out for each others' throats. Just something to consider. Point being that sometimes, willingness to work on a relationship > inherent compatibility constraints.
I'm married to an ISFP. Failure to properly communicate is the biggest hurdle. Otherwise, they're quite similar in some ways. Both types crave independence and loathe feeling controlled and manipulated by others. Both types take pride or satisfaction from learning to do things themselves, although the ISFP will be a little more hands-on and is going to want to get right to the task at hand, whereas the INTP might be slightly more cautious or spend more time planning out said task and learning all of the details and concepts related to the task.
Hm... I dunno. I feel like I get along with most types equally -- or at least it depends on the individual. The only reason why the "In Charge" vs. "Behind the Scenes" rivalry rang true for me, was that I always used to drive my INTP dad crazy, growing up. Any time I showed too much of the "In-Charge" thing without, in his view, doing enough preparatory calculation, it would really rub him the wrong way! I wonder if that's why ESTJs bother you, @Such Irony? Too quick to act, without enough deliberation? And/or (another thing that bothered my dad asking for more deliberative input only to not take that advice and go a different direction?
