    Default Best Type for ENFJs?

    So what's our best type match? Some say INTPs, others INFPs, still others ISTPs (which, personally I think is a terrible idea, but I digress).

    What's your opinion? Have you ever been an ENFJ/or dated one?

    I'm currently on INFJs, but it changes from week to week.

    I personally think it is about balance not type. For example, my strong N would clash w/ strong Si. Also, two strong EXXJs would probably overpower each other. The ideal mate is probably going to be highly subjective and vary from person to person.

    All that said, I think IXXPs could be a good match but I would prefer EXXP.

    My mom is an ENFJ and she likes __TP guys, namely E_TP.

    Again, I'm in for ISTPs and NTPs.

    I have felt most consistently attracted to ENTPs, I think, because my Ni is really strong and my I/E axis is so close together. I also like their ability to bring me out and make me feel affectionate/cuddly with them against my spiny will. They make me say and do things automatically that I never say or do without threat of torture first. It's an active dynamic, but comfortable at the same time. They aren't afraid of me. They treat me like a sparkly object that may delightfully kill them at any time. And they given me the best gifts, like they understand the next two steps past the obvious of how my brain works.

    ISTPs "get" me. Nuff said.

    But I also advocate the ENFJ/INFP relationship.

    With ISTPs that are 9w1 the problem may be that we are not self-concious. So while ENFJs like to be able to follow a "role" or have rules. I dont think that a 9w1 ISTP really knows themself good enough to be able to provide that because of the peacemaker role. And the peacemaker role itself seems to get me into problems with an ENFJ. I tend to step on one persons toes to try to support someone else and I end up sticking up for the underdog. Maybe an enneagram 5 ISTP which sounds like they lean more towards ISTJ.

    But really all that matters is what works in real life. What I put above seems to fit the issues between me(ISTP) and my wife(ENFJ) down to the arguement we had last night. So maybe a enneagram 9w8 or type 5 ISTP works better than a 9w1 ISTP.

    Surprisingly, I am all about an ENFP... Can think like an NT, the passion of an NF, the free spirit of a P. What isn't to like?

    My INTP brother has been with his ENFJ girlfriend for six and a half years.

    Wait a sec, I got first dibbs on any attempt to impress the good Lady Jaye.
    As ENFPs never like being thought of in the terms of "possession" or "resource", so I understand that sending her to me, does not negate the fact that she can (and may just) leave at any time.
