    I am not one to have many friends, but have many acquaintances. The two people I get along well with (who don't irritate me) are both INFJ's (although one I suspect is borderline F/T and J/P) and of course my Husband who is an INTJ and I get on very well in fact without trying to sound sappy (eww) he is my bestest friend in the entire world!

    Based on my MBTI percentages what type do you think I'd get on best with?

    Also, what type do you get along best with? And I don't mean romantically.

    probably INxJs.

    Extroverts would annoy you from all the chatter/activity that would get underfoot, you need to maintain some control over your surroundings.
    P's aren't closure-oriented enough, you appreciate them in the right situations but too much openness results in a lack of efficiency/structure, which I think frustrates you over time.
    You might be able to deal with S's who can openly appreciate N's (they won't stymie your intuition at all).
    That's my guess.

    you might also be able to deal with ISFPs. Their lack of direction would annoy you... but you'd probably sense their deep compassion and open spirit and empathize with it.

    Jennifer, thank you for being the only person who has responded thus far. I can't help but wonder sometimes if I'd do better with an NT as a bff. Delilah possibly?

    I don't mean to, I'm just flaky, but I am loads of fun when I am around.

    I feel like cast-off fat jeans.

    Hey you're mentioned in the original OP okay? I also forgot to mention my lovely ISFJ friend. Her is beautiful and is one of the kindest, most smartest people I know. She is also very patient with my grammar, spelling and tolerates my need for gabbing now and then.

    She probably doesn't need as many ego strokes as I do, either.

    Edit: I voted for several types I think might be good for various reasons.

    Out of your purse, or out of my head?

    Delilah I don't think it will work out,. Now and then we can hang out, have some drinks and bitch about everything and cuss people out who look at us funny but if you're at all moody and/or have too many issues I can't handle that. I am assuming that's why you disappear for periods of time?

    Cafe you are very familiar to me and definitely different in person than online and I mean that in a very positive way. Very intelligent and very well read.
