    INFPs can be... resistant when it comes to gravitating naturally towards compatibility. Many of us don't find love unless it comes up and punches us in the face.

    Edit: Also, those types may simply not be for you.

    Other than that, sound advice. Compatibility is rarely solely based on 'type match'. There are way too many other factors.
    It's sarcasm.

    One of the many traits why everyone loves INTJs.

    I didn't mean to sound like I was limiting to type only for compatability. I realize there are a lot of other factors. But I believe the opposite to be true, where incompatable types do have a negative effect.

    But I'm kind of glad to hear my theory is flawed.

    But I agree.
    Incompatible types generally do have a negative effect (unless both parties are both balanced, and still then, it would be harder to click I'd say).
    I didn't want to say the other factors are more important. Because even if the other factors are positive, and the personalities don't click, then it doesn't work out. But then again even if the personalities click but the other factors don't then it's still hard to make things click (probably easier than the first though). That is why I said half...

    I'm not sure what your theory was though, you said a few things. If it is that INFP doesn't have a match though then that is a flawed theory. Of course INFPs have a match.

    Could INFPs lack a compatible type?
    This seems very likely.

    The problem is not type, it's maturity and preferences. For instance, ENFJ's dislike passivity, which is what INFP's are known for, and INFP's dislike assertiveness, which is what ENFJ's are known for. Each likes the aspect in the other because they don't have it, so a middle ground has to be established, but that's true for any relationship.

    I think I work really well with INFPs; we complement each other very nicely, and we have a great ability to communicate. I would talk to and INFP I knew for like 5 hours on the phone and we would go out for coffee at 4, and it would still be talking at 11. We would never run out of things to say.

    Ok, I'm not willing to give up on the theory that easily.

    I once filled out a personality questionnaire on a dating site. At the end of it, they basically said that statistically they felt they couldn't find a match for me. I suppose it could be a case that they designed for the majority, which is the SP/SJ pairing, but it still kind of sucked.

    I mean, there are probably worker ants that are pissed that there is no clear career goal to becoming a queen. But not every ant can be a queen.

    So from a big picture view, if an INFP is simply supposed to be a catalyst for other relationships, and maybe write cool poetry and love songs, then maybe it's ok.
