    My Mom, God love her, may or may not be self centered, but i never seem to realize it.
    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?

They would see him much differently, so judging someone's marriage from the outside-in is usually impossible.
    I know it's hard to hear semi-negative things about your type, but she has told me the same things that he has. No one is judging you.

    Yea, I couldn't see relating well too an SJ in a LT relationship either. I really enjoy SPs, and find that I'm able to relax and let go with them(not worry as much about the future). I have an easy time with other NFs as well, but I don't remember knowing too many male E-NFs. E-NTs are cool too.

    I'm an INFJ and I did recognize my propensity to want this 'perfect' relationship, and certain things I'd always fantasized about seemed so much better in the fantasy than they did when they ACTUALLY happened. I recognized this though, acknowledged it aloud, and tried to work hard on appreciating what I had rather than chasing this stuff in my head.

    I definitely see where my personality can be challenging, that's why I took pains to meet in the middle. Still, I sort of think my ex and I both tried really hard to meet in the middle but neither of us had the ability to recognize just how much the other was doing, if that makes sense. I probably neglected to see his efforts because I'm wired so innately different, and vice versa.

    I have been really interested in the topic of personality types in reference to marriage/relationships. I don't want to get too crazy with it to the point I get like "I'm totally going to type everyone I date and I won't date them again if their type is on the 'incompatible with INFJ' list!!!".

    It's just interesting to see how different types approach relationships, what things the different types have in common in terms of relationships.
    That sounds very ISTP to me.

    Oh ok, well if she agrees...How old is this lady?

    I wasn't thinking you were judging me in particular, I was just saying in general, marriages can be kooky arrangements. It's difficult to tell what's really going on unless you're there all the time.

    Supposedly the worst arrangements are between Extroverts and Introverts. Particularly extroverted women and introverted men. Go figure...

    She's 38 now. Yeah, no one ever really knows what goes on behind closed doors - - and I don't want to know!

    Haha. Good thing there are always exceptions, right and that MB type isn't the end all be all. Are you with an introvert or extrovert?

    He's an INTJ. As introverted as they come. Funny, eh? But we have matching souls...I know, I know, very mysterious INFJ jibberish. But it's true, even after spending the first few years trying to terminate one another. I always surmise that nurture (or lack thereof) made his closet F a T. He scowls when I say that out loud.

    Two introverts together. Sweet!! I could see how that might be heaven seeing as you guys are so rare, and probably largely misunderstood by this generally extroverted world. Happy to hear of bliss somewhere on earth!!

    So you guys tried to off each other early into the the relationship? How old were you then? Why the change? What made you stay together? I'm interested in knowing. You know for us NFers...there's always hope.
