    Ni Fe Ti Se vs. Ne Fi Te Si

    it seems like it would be auspicious,
    or is it just a constant " inward vs. outward " struggle ?
    Yeah.

    My understanding: the logic is that you need someone to communicate well with (share N or S preference), but also someone who will "balance you out" (all the other preferences opposite).

    My experience, having known about the MBTI since middle school, is that there isn't much correlation, so I wouldn't put much stock into this. There may be something to sharing N or S, especially with NT-NF couples, which I seem to know of an improbably high amount of -- but other than that I wouldn't really worry about it.

    You do realize thats an INTJ vs. ENFP layout
    and the only proof is the IxxJ vs ExxP scenario

    I'm bumping an old thread that peetered out back in March. I think we all know that INFJs supposedly match well with ENFPs and ENTPs. But I found this type match a new one on me:

    Anyone have some light to shed on this? Experience?

    i'm an enfp. my best friend is an infj male and another close friend is an infj female. i also know another male infj.

    if anything, there aren't enough infj females around me, otherwise i would have found one and probably even proposed to one by now. my best friend and i used to joke about how we wish the other was a girl because we couldn't find girlfriends. honestly, if there's any type i'd absolutely kill to be in a relationship with it's with an infj.

    the other would be an intj but do you know how hard it is to find a female one of those? man, the universe is just stacked against me.

    Every female INFJ that I've known well (3 of them) has been incredibly attracted to the ESTP. It's often to their detriment, as the younger ESTP male tends to be a bit of a player, and the two that got into relationships with them got their hearts broken.

    The INFJ that I still am in contact with is currently engaged to an especially out-going (MBTI tested) ISTP. It seems to work out well, as he encompasses the moment and remains level headed when she loses hers. ISTPs have a neat way at looking at the world, are usually friendly, funny in a teasing and challenging manner, upbeat, and loyal... all traits that the INFJ appreciates. This ISTP is a bit of a philosophizer too, so his ISTP perspective provides interesting view points of the world.

    Hah, all this is frustrating to this INFP male that finds himself drawn INFJs, despite his better judgement!

    Keep looking for the INFJ. I've been dating one for about 9 months and it's been fantastic. She's so emotionally in tune and supportive. My only slight issue relates to compliments: I like to give and receive positive feedback, she likes to leave these things unsaid. Still, her deep caring more than makes up for such a minor concern.
    As for the INTJ females, they're floating around. I've met several at my college. I'm not sure if I could see myself with one given that my two close INTJ friends, one male and one female, are kind of possessive. Maybe that's not universal, but both of the INTJ's I know are really needy.
