    Default ENFP and INTP Magnetic Pull?

    Anyone else experienced this?

    I'm an ENFP who is extremely high on "N" and just slightly "F" so I am also largely in touch with my "T..." I've noticed that INTPs and I always have this magnetic pull and "click." We have an incredibly energized and engaging connection.

    INTPs to me (the ENFP) are like "hellllllooo!!!! I just found my long lost mindmate!!" Not only that but we both have a bit of an offbeat, quirky humor... This leads to lots of banter and wit, which of course fuels the chemistry all around... We also like to debate one another just for the heck of it and the intellectual stimulation/challenge.

    Sometimes when we start talking everyone just stops and stares because we are so absorbed in our own world. I think it's a great combo - plus I need a lot of autonomy and personal space (slightly E) myself so we both "get" each other! We would both rather burn in hell than talk on the phone lol.

    Yep....dialect
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Man, INTPs are the worst



    I didn't realize until I joined this forum that INTPs and ENFPs supposedly get along well IRL. I discovered around the same time that 2 of my good friends were INTP. My younger brother is also INTP and my parents are INTX so I also chalk it up to just getting primed for INTX communication styles, etc.

    When people seem cold on the surface or even awkward or very quiet, it often doesn't phase me. There are many times I feel like I can sense the the person inside coming through, if that makes sense. I think also being Fi dom, it can help you be more in touch with the 'inner feelings' of others.

    Or something.

    I do find that the ENFP joviality, confidence, light-heartedness and optimism are good counters to the INTP pessimism, criticism, self-doubt, and unsentimentality. Also, INTPs feel safe showing their child-like side to ENFPs who can appreciate and encourage it. INTPs provide a great partner for intellectual stimulation - both types generally dont' have a filter and can talk about a lot of random stuff and explore ideas. INTP criticism sometimes acts like 'fake J' - it's provides a counterpoint to ENFP unchecked wishful thinking and provides a trusted source for criticism when ENFPs need another POV.

    Weirdly, I just don't like INTPs. Maybe the ones I met were simply annoying, or maybe it's something that has to do with the type.
