    Default INFJ Compatibility - INFJ's Romantic Match?

    Hey!

    So I was just wondering if anyone knows the personality types that compliment an INFJ's? I was wondering if the sex of the INFJ or the other personality depends on it and how accurate the compatibility between the two are. I'm not looking for a match online, but I'd find it interesting if there was a specific type.

    Please, share thy wisdom.

    The poll doesn't match the thread title or the text in the OP?

    FYI we did a poll on rarest male type here and the INFJ did indeed 'win'. Of course, it's difficult to know whether that's just because voters knew it's supposed to be the rarest male type...

    Hehe, I'm new here. I'll go check out that thread.

    Yeah, I was curious to see anyway. I guess there's no need for the poll!

    To my knowledge, we haven't done a best-romantic-match-for-the-INFJ poll, so go ahead and actually make that one.

    Haha, I guess I should have done the poll on that one instead. I can't seem to change the poll. I'll have to make another one. Hehe.

    my brother's an INFJ. his first love was an INFP, that didn't work out. he's an enneagram 3 and had too hold back too much as she was overly sensitive.

    if i would have to guess i'd say his new girlfriend is an ISFP. it's working out very well. she's grounded which compliments him well.

    As a female INFJ, I have a distinct inclination toward NT males--particularly INTPs.

    I've never met a male INFJ in real life. As an INFJ, if I were a guy with guyish preferences, I'd imagine that I might be inclined toward an SJ woman.

    That sounds about right to me.
    “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.”

    Well I'm a male INFj but when it comes to romance there is just so much to consider. There is the chemistry factor where some types just click with me, such as ENFJs. Then there is the mental types, such as INTPs and a lot of INTJs, who provide a strong psychological connection. I tend to have strong emotional connections to INFPs. But when it comes to the spiritual connection that I crave, it's those amazing and fun loving ENFPs that drive me wild.

    I would have to say as far as long term, ENFP wins, as I don't think I could stand it if I ended up with an unhealthy INFP or a cynical INTP/INTJ. ENFPs just somehow bring the child out of me and I forget all my rigidity. Plus, they are just so super sexy. *drools*

    No! The SJ nurturing types of women are very attractive but they often lack substance beyond some religious affiliation.

    But I should probably mention that I'm bisexual so that may skew my perception of things.

    Best romantic match? No idea! I'll let you know once I do know, lol.

    Personally, I'm drawn much more to extroverts. I believe it is because I want someone to 'balance' me out, and bring me out - emotionally and socially. I have also only dated extroverts - they have all been EN's - because they have the ability to bring me out of my shell. I suppose I have never had a relationship with another introvert, because dating, in my experience, doesn't pan out well when it's two introverts going out on a date for the first time. Neither one talks or is really at ease, and it can lend to discomfort, and both people just wanting to go and hide. So, neither one really wants to see the other person a second time around. :-)

    As for NF vs NT - it's a tough call. I dated an ENFJ who was TOO emotional/needy for me, and an ENFP who was just...an unhealthy version of ENFP (I have two friends who are healthy ENFP's, so I know what they're like!). I've also dated an ENTJ who was TOO cynical/embittered/callous, and as a result I have very little patience/tolerance for cynicism and the like these days. My sample size of ENxx's is too small at this point!! I think though that there are less emotional ENF's out there, and less cynical ENT's out there -- so I'd need one of those. And..I know they exist. :-)

    Edit: spelled out the specific EN's I've dated. :-)
