    (INTJ is INTp/ILI in socionics while INFP is INFj/EII)

    Which one is best - you decide
    Do you have any more of these articles for the other relations?

    Totally agree.

    In fact, I just wrote about that in this thread as a potential explanation as to why there are so many proclaimed EFP 2s on PersonalityCafe.

    Because they're Fe users; they don't really know themselves.

    I've considered the same typing Oro has come up with, but, whenever I do, I think you myself, "But I dunno, uumlau could be something else."

    I think the direction my mind has been heading has always been towards 9, but that's a pretty rare type for an INTJ, so I always go back to 5w6.

    I recommend you get this book (http://www.amazon.com/Personality-Ty.../dp/0395798671).

    It's way more in-depth than anything you find on the internet.
    I already have that book (it's Oro's, but same difference). I don't find it enlightening.

    FWIW, I took another test at PB's suggestion. Results are here: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...=1#post1860998

    It takes more than three licks to get to the center of an INTJ!

    no, that's a typical back and forth we have with recipes, where he is so [goddamned, friggin'] literal about a recipe, when in fact they are sometimes written like poems, which have a lot of stuff left out. It is a recipe, not instructions on how to make an atom bomb.

    So, typically I do the cooking and he swoopss by and makes the occasional 'correction', adding stuff like garlic powder, when I'm not at the stove. It is a little infuriating, but I let it go.

    He is just one intj, and can't be held to represent the whole genome. But I think in general, intjs can be....difficult. I say that with gentle, white gloves. But honestly, you must admit that intjs can be difficult? Of course, any type can be difficult depending on your own personality. I can see how infp's could be difficult if you're the type that wants to get stuff done and decided.

    I mean, you have long posts about dominating the world. Cannot be the easiest type to get along with!!! (and I write this, not in the midst of a dispute with my SO)

    I find that lots of INTJs take up cooking as a hobby, and they aren't ones to follow a recipe. Their fascination instead seems to be finding new ways of mixing things together, or experimenting to find the perfect way to prepare a favorite dish.

    Try this book out on your INTJ: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0316118400/...l_634yt5ohhx_b I'm not so interested in cooking, myself, but when I do, this is how I think of it. It would explain his penchant for swooping by and adding garlic, for example.

    One other thing to note about INTJs: when INTJs become very literal, it means we're still too ignorant of a topic to properly intuit anything about it. That's why we can be utterly intuitive about a math problem, but extremely literal when dealing with human relationships. This doesn't mean we're entirely ignorant, of course: in software development, I have to treat any new technology or language very literally for a while - to the point where I'm impatient for the intuition to kick in and show me how to fill in all the blanks.

    25 pages? I'll say neither but if you must, ENFP with a weak F.

    See here it is. I don't think that it's that INTJs are difficult to get along with per se. I think that it's that it's more difficult for INFPs and INTJs to get along than for ENFPs and INTJs to get along.

    I've come to believe that one can predict with relative certainty the positive feelings and the obstacles that any two types will encounter when interrelating. Obviously, many factors other than type are involved when two types interact, however type always plays a role.

    If the aforementioned theory is correct, then is it not reasonable to say that one type pairing faces more or less obstacles than another type pairing? Thus, I've come to conclude that an INTJ-INFP pairing will face Dom Fi (INFP) and Aux Te (INTJ) clashes that will make such relations more conflict-proned than an ENFP-INTJ pairing.

    ENFP and INTJs both have their Fi and Te in the auxilliary and tertiary positions (thought they are reversed). Imagine a mature INTJ or ENFP who has good control of their tertiary function and can use both their auxiliary and tertiary functions with relative ease.

    INTJ = Ni > Te > Fi > Se
    ENFP = Ne > Fi > Te > Si

    This means you have two people with dominant intuition who both use Te and Fi well. Such a match might be said to have been made in heaven. Whereas take a look at the INFP / INTJ pairing:

    INTJ = Ni > Te > Fi > Se
    INFP = Fi > Ne > Si > Te

    An INFP's dominant Fi feels very different than tertiary Fi. What's more, I've heard more than one INFP say on this forum and IRL that Te (that likes to "get stuff done and decided" as xenaprincess said) feels very "destabilizing" to them. Well look how prominent an INTJ's Te is. Thus, we can say that in the above scenario, there is an inherent Te aux/Fi dom obstacle to overcome between INFPs and INTJs.

    Does this make sense?
