    Default Hey ENFP, what do you think of the INTP?

    There are crazy stories about these two chemistry matches. Everything from magic, to a couple about automatic dislike, to leaving a hole in your heart.
    Personally I think it could be one fo the best MBTI matches. INTPs let ENFPs take the spotlight, and can be emotional and need us to soothe their worries.
    But I see nothing but sob stories about ENFP-INTP relationships.
    It usually ends with the ENFP leaving and breaking the INTP's heart. A lot of people blame the ENFP's superficiality, or lack of interest.
    The way I could see it going wrong is:
    Instant chemistry. It's intense and everything feels perfect and matched. The INTP begins to worry that the ENFP doesn't feel the same, and being that we usually have to prod them a little to get their deeper emotions out, they don't tell us. Instead they distance themselves, and the ENFp takes this so completely the wrong way. They feel like the INTP doesn't like them anymore and end up leaving for fear of being hurt or hurting the INTP.


    I'm currently in a long-lasting INTP-ENFP relationship, and we both recognize the signs of the story above. We've worked out a damn good system. It's still a little disheartening to see nothing but sad stories.

    So guys, what's your take on ENFP-INTP relations and the INTP in general?

    Seems like it could work under the right circumstances.

    They're cute in social situations, and it's refreshing that they don't seem to give a damn about them sometimes. Oh, and they like at least a sprinkling of independence, which is nice.

    As long as they're not one of those terribly stubborn types. There's nothing worse than someone who thinks that they're right and can't change their mind and thinks that their view is the absolute objective truth.

    I find the chemistry can be incredible with INTPs, and usually instantaneous almost. I can see it working, but what usually makes me decide against it for long-term is the fact that you inevitably get that miscommunication between Fi,Ti,Te and Fe. And it takes forever to get those miscommunications sorted, I find. I find that while with NTJs it takes slower to build up to that same intensity, the communication is more natural and gives less head aches.

    I have trouble taking INTPs seriously. I'm not sure why.

    I am not sure what do I think about this combo. Maybe when I meet a normal INTP I will be able to tell. You know... most were too much of a mess to know how it works when they're healthy.

    My one ex was INTP. my dad was INTP. and one dude I was in some half-relationship with was INTP. all of them were huge mess.

    I like most INTPs. Some of them are really fascinating, but others can be just a bit too abstract to me, like as if their brains are living in some other universe. My relationships with with INTPs are nothing special. I like talking with them and stuff, but I prefer studying them from afar. They're fun, but I get enough of INTPs quickly.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Except me and the OP, right? Please tell us that we're special.


    So what do INTPs think of us? Be gentle, lest there be some way for us to interpret your opinions as personal criticisms and then cry.

    Well I don't know about ENFPs, but I think IXTPs are pretty freaking awesome.
