    I was friends for a while with a male INTJ who is now dating my INFP sister and I am currently engaged to an ISFP.

    Crazy'ness! Well...thats my opinion (all in fun though).

    The question I mainly ask is, would a male INFJ and a female INFJ get along? ..

    Because you need give and take in a relationship ship, if both sides are trying to give or both sides are trying to take, would that make things end permanently due to mis-communication? or is that just my line of thinking.

    I agree with the ENTP consensus although I admit I have a morbid/fatal attraction toward INTP's because of their incredible depth, psychological complexity, and facility with language - it's kind of a an "intellectual bad boy"-type attraction... but most of one key experience was gained via writing where we revealed much more than we would have in person... so I'm not sure the attraction would have naturally happened otherwise.
    As far as the N-S debate, there seems to be a much better "mind match" with similar types. I grew up in a family of sensors, yet my N friends intuitively know me so much better. I appreciate sensors' groundedness and lack of fickleness, traits that can be lacking in N's (present company included) .. but the mental excitement just isn't there for me.
    My favorite boss was an ENTP. I knew what he wanted before he asked for it, and he was all around a fun person to work for. He, in turn, seemed to appreciate that I "got" him and his humor and accepted his foibles. I think INFJ's need someone to pull them out of their (our) overly-serious navel-gazing.

    I think INTPs are a fairly good match for INFJs as well.

    I don't know about other infjs, and I don't generally use mbti-type as a prerequisite for dating, but I don't think i'd be drawn to an infj guy. Not because of the give-take thing, but because I feel like I need the even-keel temperament of NTs. I'm so easily influenced by other people's emotions, that I don't want a mate who has great emotional fluctuation on a daily basis. Not that all NFs are emotional basket cases, but if I'm feeling bad, and my mate is so sympathetic that he starts feeling bad because I am, then we're in a pickle. (yeah, that's a simplistic reply. there's no perfect answer to that question...)

    Also, I just love the way NT minds work. So sexy.

    I'm married to an INTJ. It was 9 years this past May and we have three children together.
    It works because we understand each other and I also know that deep down inside he is a wonderful person even though he doesn't always show it. He is also very kind and understanding when my emotional side rears it's ugly head. We never argue because he is too logical for that. I used to get upset when he would refuse to engage me until I finally realized that using logic and reason from can be pretty liberating for a feeler.
    Time is a delicate mistress.

    My INTP is a non-arguer too. It took some getting used to but now I love it. It means I don't have to worry about getting into some horrible nasty communication loop when I occasionally fly off the handle. It feels very safe to know that somebody with a cool head is around to hold down the fort when I loose my cool.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    That's exactly how I feel about relationships. My girlfriend is probably IxTP and she's the only relationship where I've felt some kind of balance. With extravert girls things always started intense and didn't last long.

    Yea, my ISTP is really laidback. After dealing with dramatic guys in the past, it's really refreshing to not have a constant argument brewing.
