    :yim_rolling_on_the_ It seems to be a common coupling - no idea why.

    That's very well said. I can see how you'd do well with an INFP. Many of us are looking for someone to take with us into our inner worlds, but it's hard to find people who want to take the journey.
    What inner world? Can you describe/specify that? I'm, personally, interested in someone who'd understand how my inner world shapes my external world and my external desires and goals. The worse thing for me will be to stick myself deeper into my inner world. I need to make myself applicable.

    Off on a random thought, I couldn't see myself with a dominant-ish type. I need someone laid-back and non-judgmental, someone who will let me do my thing without being all like you're wasting your time/you should be doing this and this instead. But at the same time, I want someone who's interested in what I am doing with my life and who I am as a person and we can share ideas, without being just 'that's cool. good job. am i making dinner or are you?' that's not a lot to ask...

    Th statement does sound strange...Could and Lack...and Compatible.

    When you are focusing on what you do lack in your life then you are lacking. When you are focusing on what you want to expand on in your life than you are expanding. A closed book or an open book?

    Compatible is a comparison term like competition, then the strangeness of the term compatible feels that we need to be in survival mode to compete with our lack in order to stay empty...which sounds wrong don't you think. And hence why do we want to be compatible with anyone if we are afraid to be compatible with ourselves first? Feels like then we are wanting to adapt to change to other people rather than being authentic. And then compatibility is a none issue. Hahha thinks of combat boots strangely.

    I think Socionics is useful here, but it is necessary to get your type right before it can be. Generally speaking, INFPs are INFj in Socionics (which would make their most compatible type ESTj -- ESTP or ESTJ in MBTI), but some are INFp or INTp, which would make their dual type respectively ESTp (ENTJ), or ESFp (generally ESFJ).

    Are any types compatible? Isn't love a choice? If half the world divorces, then half the world is INFP? lolz, no. Let's face it, when the INFP breaks down and loves something, it's as imperfectly perfect as anything could be. Yes, as imperfect as the INFP. The INFP sees whatever the INFP wants to see (typically through rose-colored glasses). What the INFP likes, the INFP puts up on a pedastal and works hard to keep it there if mutual. The INFP doesn't force people into anything; though we understand the power of persuasion over time. The fact that the INFP doesn't typically commit to worldy standards, rules or schedules (though we respect differences), it doesn't mean the INFP is incompatible. It just means simply this, "what's all the fuss for?" No worries. So, the world doesn't wait for the INFP. So what! It doesn't mean we're incompatible with all other types.

    Actually, yes and no, respectively. Compatibility theories don't work for MBTI, but they do, I find, quite beautifully for Socionics (dual isn't your only choice though). As for love, it's the result of a flood of endorphins. It isn't possible to choose who we fall in love with, or whom we're attracted to.

    IMO the potential problem in relationships for INFP, might not be finding people that give them the kind of love they need, but knowing how to fully love themselves first, so that afterwards someone else can. So the essential self-love part of relationship is the crux of the dilemma for the INFPs that have trouble with love.
    thirded.

    and actually, that's kind of a fascinating point in reference to the thread title, because unless you allow yourself to be loved, you're not going to be compatible with anyone.

    What if INFPs are meant to be a catalyst for other relationships, but are not meant to engage themselves?
    That is an interesting idea. tbh, i think there some INFPs who are in fact not even engaged and/or engaging enough to act as a catalyst for other relationships... I know I'm not ....

    INFPS dislike assertiveness
    I don't dislike assertiveness.
