    I've found INFPs and ENFJs do go well together. It's a very balanced relationship, where the primary functions of E/I compliment each other. If you look at the primary functions, the ENFJ is: Fe/Ni/Se/Ti and the INFP is Fi/Ne/Si/Te. I think they see themselves and who they would like to be in each other, and that strengthens them both when they're together.

    ENFJs are the only type I've ever known who seem to naturally get me and accept me as I am, even encouraging me to do what others would see as odd or dreamy. And I find ENFJs inspiring and refreshing. The only friend I've remained in contact with since high school is an ENFJ.

    I'm so unfamiliar with INFP women. What is the best indication of the type? Per ongoing thread, it almost feels wrong not going out in search of one.

    This thread is making me want to go out and find an INFP girl....

    I think this kind of relationship would be really good for people that are young. Keirsey says that ENFJ-INTP is where it's at but that's definitely a relationship that works only if both are mature. I find that INTP girls have a lot of angst about they are and how they're perceived and simply don't feel attractive. I would think that this would result in both sides duking it out with their main contenders and leaving both with a very negative perception of their own inferior functions. ENFJ-INFP is definitely the ticket for right now.

    It's good to hear that you relationship, whatever it may end up being, is working well for you since the OP, OP. I know that I always fear being so overbearing with my Fe and scaring the pretty butterflies away.

    Oh, I remember reading on some forum, probably this one, perhaps the biggest challenge that the INFP-ENFJ pairing faces is that they are each strongest where the other is weakest. Which is great at first, but wears on you over time, supposedly. INFP's have an EXTREMELY well developed sense of self, and know who they are and generally don't let others push them out of that. BUT, they are not really so good in groups, and generally aren't good at being "social leaders." We tend to like to stay in the back and observe or daydream, or to deal with people one-on-one in depth. ENFJ's do EXTREMELY well as group/social leaders, "see" the needs of others, and can respond appropriately to people and situations. But they don't necessarily know who they are outside of others expectations, and so can blow around in the wind of others and other people needs or desires. Put succinctly, INFP know who they are while generally leaving others alone, while ENFJ's are amazing at being everything to everybody until they realize that they don't necessarily know who they are themselves.

    At least, that's my attempt to describe what I remember reading.

    Thoughts???

    I would say that this is fairly accurate, especially for younger people of each type. I think being in a constant state of flux and continuously testing the values you have taken on as an ENFJ is part of who we are.

    I think people also mix up when an ENFJ accepts someones values with actually infusing ourselves with them. We have our own values but we don't always want to project them on other people if we know it will cause trauma.
