    I'm trying to see if there's a connection between enemy match and your experiences.

    I don't feel this current line of questioning relates to the initial point that I made whatsoever. And while I'm sure that understanding how enemy percentages plays a role in chemistry, it's still besides the basic point that I don't think your study shows what you were trying to show.

    Intertype relationships in socionics focus on actual psychological compatibility, which is related to, but not identical to the kinds of relationship preferences that match percentages indicate on OKC. The value of your study from what I can tell is providing some validity to the idea that there is some significance in the relationship between MBTI type and patterns of behavior. That validity of typology as a whole is challenged regularly enough that that's a fairly interesting finding.

    It's also interesting to have some data around what constitutes true "nearest types" in MBTI. I don't think it would be obvious to most people that ENFxs are closer to ENTJs in terms of how they behave in relationships or what they value in partners than any of the other NT types. That's an insight that's intriguing enough to me without needing the data to say something it's not.

    There's a version that calculated similarity: Most similar types (according to answers on OkCupid)

    Well...now you have a solid companion to that initial study.

    This is like that photocopier thing.

    Well, this is pretty good proof that type compatibility is a bullshit theory.

    That being the case, it would make a lot of sense that those who share a type would have the highest "compatibilities" as they should theoretically share relationship preferences/styles as well.

    More anecdotally, two of my longest term relationships were with guys with whom I had match scores in the 70% range. Anything above 90%, ime, and you just kind of slide right past each other as there's not enough friction to really create a spark.
    YES.

    Someone gave me advice to not answer too many questions when using OKcupid. Back when I tried that site, I found that a good strategy. Even a match in the high 80s was not too identical, since I kept the questions to around 400-500 and only bothered with the more serious ones.

    It's also based on what you think you like or would like, which is not necessarily how you experience and respond to other people, especially emotionally.

    It's like seeing/hearing about a new food and thinking it sounds gross, but then you try it and really like it. Or you see a dish and think you'll like it, but then you find it rather bland or even yucky. What you think you will like is not how you necessarily end up experiencing something (including people...who are not food XD ), or there is stuff you'd never imagine you'd like or are okay with until you give it a shot. That's why the algorithm thing ends up failing for me.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I appreciate the way that you said this. Attraction is such a fascinating thing, because of how complex the relationship can be between what we think we'd like and what we actually like.

    It's like that eternal business of the known knowns, the known unknowns and the unknown unknowns. Someone could hit you super hard with something you didn't even know you wanted, much less know how to ask for it. And that unknown unknown desire could end up superseding whatever checklist of knowns you'd had prior to interacting with that person. You could have little in common in terms of preference, but strong mutual attraction and compatible interaction styles and still ultimately work it out.
