    Default What does the INFP - INFP relation look like?

    Okay ya.

    I am curious about this because my one INFP friend is very attracted to my other INFP friend. AND i hear it frequently mentioned in threads, that infps (atleast in theory) prefer their same type.

    Now to me this concept seems a bit strange, to say the least. Perhaps It's because I can't fathom two ENFP's together. The craziness, the shenanigans, the energy, and fighting for the lime light. UGH! But I really wonder what the hell two INFP's would look like? How would they operate in this cruel reality? Would one pick up the slack the other leaves? Would the behaviors (not core personality) significantly change? Would they ever leave their home? (Real concern revealed haha).

    What has been your experience?

    Near for me. I've never fell in love with a INFP
    I had an ex who was a ISFP and the mutual Fi made our relation extremely difficult. We shared meaningfull moments, we certainly loved each other, but at the end our self absortion and her tendency to be so egocentric and hermetic destroyed the relationship...
    Recently Im getting to know an ESFJ girl... The difference is huge.

    @FineLine - he is an INFP married to an INFP - he may have some thoughts on the topic.

    Back when the INFP forum was still around this relationship was seen as a "heaven or hell" type relationship. REALLY good, or REALLY bad. I've read that male INFP's often marry INFP women [likewise female ENFJ's often marry male ENFJ's].

    I feel like an ENTP/INFP hybrid frequently. Or sometimes I just think I am ENFP, and sometimes I think I'm INTP. I feel like I can jump all over depending on the situation.

    On topic, I think that INFP + INFP at least one of them would have to be a bit more extroverted, nearly 0 midline. Otherwise no one could step up to the plate to get things moving.

    Really anything. Need someone to take initiative in general. Even just starting the dating process going might be a huge task for two INFP.

    I think I might identify one girl from my former school as INFP (100% sure I am not though), other than that I cannot remember having known more INFPs (maybe I did but didn't realize). While there was always some symphathy going on between each other I would say, we were both not really the initiating kind of people (she maybe a little more than me but still not very much) so we didn't get real friends or so, although I actually liked her. It was no romantic interest going on though from my side, probably not from her side either although at start I was not 100% sure.
