    Why is it that ENTP is always pegged as the compensatory narcissist? Why is it always about how great they are and how dumb everyone else is?

At face value I would say and INFJ would be a really poor match for the ENTP but I know the workings of both and the dynamic when both parties are willing to put their guard down long enough to let the other see what's really going on.

    The other issue is I know A LOT of people that think they're INFJ, I know very few that really are. There are some classic examples of an INFJ and the different outlooks they can have, Sanveane, Cascadeco, Lexicon to name a few though for each of them there are 5 people saying they're INFJ who aren't in fact Ni/Fe dominant. See what I'm getting at?

    I'm not overly critical, I'm good with people when they're at their worst and unlike most other types I would never exploit the things about an INFJ that not only make them so amazing but also make them so easy to exploit.

    So I don't know about other ENTPs, I know I have done a lot of growing, I'm very self aware and the sharp edges of mine that were once damaging to others have been worn smooth with age.

I doubt one will even respond to that because ENFJs don't post in the forums due to always being out doing something for somebody other than themselves.

    There are many reasons I question the INFJ/ENTP pairing as it's hard to find an INFJ that's all there and not lost in taking care of somebody else but some of the most amazing people I know are INFJs though I think they fair pretty poorly if raised by the wrong people causing nature versus nature to play a fairly large roll in what they're like as adults.

    The ENTP is like 10% ESTP and 90% INTP, not mixed or blended in any way shape or form. So if you see us out I highly doubt you'll be able to pick an ENTP out of the crowd. I think that's what makes us hard to meet, it would have to be random, there is no pattern you could use to meet me. I'm a recluse and love my alone time but you would never know that if you saw me out, you would think I was an over the top ball of energy.

I will only say that I know more than one INFJ/INTJ couple, fairly common when you factor in them being two of the three least common types. By contrast I don't know a single Ne/Ne couple and it would honestly disturb me, other Ne doms feel like family to me.

    I've heard a lot of INFJs say "gross", "that's nasty" or "that's like incest" when talking about Ni/Ni pairings. To partly use something Synarch once said I/I couples have WAY TOO much self and E/E couples don't have enough.

    I think you should get two magnets to illustrate this example, try putting the two -/- together and see how that works, now give the +/+ a try and you'll understand why you see two Is together but never two Es, because with the Es it's very clear there's an issue where as with the two Is they feel safe in a lazy sort of way. Now try the -/+ and you will better understand something that was very clear to Jung.

    As for the introverting/extroverting where it relates to a Ne dom. People WHY ARE YOU NOT GETTING THIS! The four most introverted of all the MBTI types are:

    ENTP
    INFP
    INTJ
    INTP

    Notice, you as an INFJ with a secondary Fe function don't make that list. Most introverted would be a Ti/Ne (that's makes perfect sense followed by a Ni/Te, Fi/Ne and coming in as the most introverted of all the extroverts...Ne/Ti.

    I'm saying this because I keep hearing the same thing over and over again about ENTPs and it makes me question if the people saying it actually know one or if they just met one that was extroverting.

    Picture the ENTP like the turbo charged introvert, it's there when we need it but sometimes you seriously need to talk me into using it.

    Hell, Sunday I went out with my INFJ friend at a club and he was hanging in there, I had to walk out just to get away from people cause I couldn't deal with them anymore.
    oh now I remember

    I love the smell of frantic "my way or the highway" verbose propaganda in the morning. You ruffle their feathers and the talons come out.

    The real world doesn't exist. Ne has decreed it. Nothing else works except ENTP/INFJ. Please be sure to explain that to all the INFJs I know who have happily found love with ISTPs, ENFPs, INFPs, ISFPs, ESTPs, etc because they're truly mistaken little sheep and should be gently guided back onto the straight and narrow-minded. INFJs are strong-willed and can think for themselves. Happiness can come in any form for them. Stop trying to ram it down their throats.

    Only one form of happiness is surely a monochrome world. Good luck with that.

    As to my post count -- I've been mortally ill for some time, and have not been strong enough to go out much. That's why I'm pathetic.

    Dude, below the belt, and reeking of self-righteousness. I admire your passion and the fact that you obviously feel strongly about this, but curb the lashing out to those that happen to disagree, will ya, especially if you pretty much asked for that reaction with your original post.

    Dom, how is it you like these guys, seriously?

    Oh, totally, although I didn't interpret the OP quite in that way. Ultimately it always boils down to the individual (although I think there are general things/needs that remain consistent for INFJ's, in terms of their overall happiness and fulfillment in a relationship); I have INFJ friends who have preferences for types who are quite different from who I have preferences for. I think there are a lot of sound reasons for why ENTP/INFJ is good, but there are sound reasons for other partnerships as well.

    You do bring so much wonderful-ness to the boards, and you're most definitely not pathetic (but that shouldn't really need to be clarified ). My favorite Ni-partner-in-crime!!

    Have you ever bothered asking yourself why this situation evokes such a strong reaction?

    The ones I know IRL don't do this, so *shrug*. Maybe I should have my head examined (to check up on the clouds of dustbunnies there in the attic). If he were already idyllically paired, I doubt we'd be seeing such flames and vitriol. Frustration drives a thwarted man/male-type thing to many conflagrations. Perhaps this is the case. Perhaps not. It's pure speculation on the 'netz.

    Oh yes. It's not a deep well. It's an obvious thing. I find that the aggressive "this is the only way" attitude of many, shall me say, sects, on the board to overbearing and a pointless waste of energy. It makes me tired all over seeing yet another "you can't marry/date X type because it's wrong/chemically impossible/forbidden by God and Allah thus say I" thread.

    On this board, INFJs are treated like the Holy Grail, like angels who radiate constant good will and sunshine, who cough up solid gold hairballs. I love INFJs dearly (very nearly being one myself) and enjoy their company immensely as I feel very mano-y-mano and jacked in when I'm around them. I've made INFJ friends here and IRL and I love them to pieces.

    But I also know their dark sides (again, I don't have to look further than myself) having been raised by one and knowing many over the years, and because I can see them for what they truly are - beauty spots/warts and all - I feel I know them and can appreciate them fully. When I start seeing a lopsided glorification of anything, I feel the need to correct it (ex. the S-hate barrage), especially a driven and apparently (to my eye) ridiculous white-washing of something that can stand on it's own merits and needs no inflation like a parade balloon. Gilding the lily, as they say. (Who's they? It's a secret!)

    That's my reaction, and I thank you for asking.

    Is it so obvious, then? Are we not living in a world where half of all marriages fail?

    Why do you think people (particular NT males) value INFJs so much?

    But I also know their dark sides (again, I don't have to look further than myself) having been raised by one and knowing many over the years, and because I can see them for what they truly are - beauty spots/warts and all - I feel I know them and can appreciate them fully.

    Meh, it's the internet. Everyone here's a persona, anyway, as you correctly mentioned. You've got a mix of teenagers talking to twenty-somethings talking to people with families. The trick is to figure out what's being said to make someone feel better, what's an expression of immaturity and inexperience, and what is a question based on the very foundations of human society.

    Is there something that INFJs do that is rare in other potential dating partners? If so, why do you think others value it so highly?

    That's my reaction, and I thank you for asking.
