    Default INTJ attracting INFP

    I've realized that a lot of the girls who find me attractive are INFP. Even more so than the ENFP/ENTP who are supposed to be our ideal partner. Any explanations?

    It doesn't seem surprising to me at all that an INFP would find an INTJ attractive. Many do. NFPs I think can be drawn to NTJs, and NFJs to NTPs.

    I mean, not always, of course, but there are certain patterns which show themselves.

    Nebby, how the heck would an ISFP mistake themselves for INTJ?

    ^My post is tinged with sarcasm. It seems that this is not a talent of mine.

    I find that I am naturally attracted to ISFJs and INFJs. To be totally honest, I would never want a girlfriend with dominant Ti. That would drive me nuts. I also despise Ni users and could never date one. They tend to be self-righteous and narrow minded in my experience.

    Oh yeah, and strong Te is even worse.

    NT can be a good balance for us. A fellow I is generally relaxing to be around. and the J balances our super P traits. (at least someone will pay the bills )

    I try to get Along with ENTJs but I think I just confuse and annoy them.

    Hm...well, a lot of INTJ guys have found me attractive in the past. I can't say I returned the feeling; I've been drawn more to INTPs & INFJs. I think some INxx types are just drawn to each other because there is an understanding that comes out of being an INxx type in an SJ world. It's like, "hey, you think a bit differently, kinda like I do", but there are still many differences to keep things interesting.

    I've heard NTs and NFs usually complement each other in a relationship, much like SJs and SPs. That's hardly a rigid rule, of course.

    We like INTJs' tiny pool of Fi.

    Ha! For me it is. I love my S friends but I don't connect on a deeper level with them.

    Scenario 1 with my ISFJ friend:

    Me: I was thinking about whether or not we can ride sharks in heaven.
    ISFJ: So I was looking at Victoria's Secret the other night and found the CUTEST bra, omg you have to get one!
    Me: And then I went on a journey to see Saturn... did you know that I celebrate my Saturn birthdays?
    ISFJ: So after we eat here, we need to go buy some ok?
    Me: And then I woke up and I really wanted to hug my pillow because I had a sad dream and I cried.
    ISFJ: Are you listening to me? We are going to Victoria's Secret!
    Me: What?

    Me with my INFP best friend:

    Me: I was thinking about whether we can rides sharks in heaven.
    BF: OMG! THAT WOULD RULE! But what if they want to eat us? :X
    Me: It's ok! In heaven we will be made out of cream cheese so they won't WANT to eat us!
    BF: OMG FOOLPROOF IDEA! Let's go test it!

    ETC.

    I am too NF to really date another NF. Our combined NF-ness would form Voltron and then a neutron star and then a black hole. Maybe in that order.

    I need a nice scientific NT who wants to play "let's discover lightening! you be the kite, and I hold you." Me: yay!
