    They are too indecisive to answer such a closed ended question.

    xxFJ I think. I don't really like NTs. I feel like I clash with them quite often or I just find them irritating.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    For me it's ENXPs, especially ENTPs. I know that dating someone with the same first function as yourself *could* make for an unbalanced dynamic, but honestly, my biggest problem in romantic relationships is stagnation. My experience of shared dominant Ne (dating an ENTP now, dated an ENFP before that) has been one of partners-in-crime, who do everything a little too big and push all the lines a little too much, but have a hell of a good time. ::shrugs::

    I tend to like NTs especially cause I do need a bit of balance on the Thinking/Feeling scale. For instance, I'm inclined to be waaaay over-idealistic. NTs aren't afraid to point out the ridiculousness there, and get me to laugh at myself. And I'm not afraid to tackle-hug them, so we're even. We're good for each other.

    INTJs are also amazing. Never got bored there!

    I've only been with F's. I've been close enough with INTJs but I forget they are male, apparently.

    ENFP translation: there is always the possibility that the true answer could change, or perhaps there is more than one right answer for each person, or perhaps there are so many nuances in type from person to person that even if we gave you an answer, it would just be one shade of gray on a sliding scale.

These two types have exactly same cognitive functions but in reverse formation, making them form what's called a Duality relationship (described under SLI-IEE, ISTJ becomes ISTp in socionics since that is their Si leading Te creative type). Unfortunately these two types may rarely meet, so their unions are very few. NFs are just more likely to get together with other NFs and ignore STs due to sensor type prejudices.

    Other favorable matches for ENFP include: INFP (mirror relationship), ESTJ (activity relationship), INTJ (mirage relationship), ENTJ and ESFJ (benefit relationship), INFJ (extinguishment relationship), ISFJ (semi-duality relationship)
    Yeah, I believe ISTJ is potentially one of them.

    Just like I think INTJ and ESFP (also relationship of duality) is a possibility.

    But, having dated many EFPs, and having my two most serious relationships be with an ESFP and an ENFP, I can say that, while there are some pro's to the INTJ-ESFP relationship that don't (theoretically [and possibly in reality]) exist (at least not in the same way, or to the same extent) within the INTJ-ENFP relationship, there are also some major pro's in the INTJ-ENFP relationship that don't exist in the INTJ-ESFP relationship.

    The more I've come to understand typology, the less I've come to believe that there is indeed one type that is best for another type, at least not by the time you get down to the individual level, where individual differences, not to mention alternate typologies like the enneagram and the instinctual variants, can be just as important (and possibly more) than MBTI/Socionics/Jungian type.

    I'm actually kinda shocked ESFP is in the lead right now...

    Unusually sexual?

    Umm... do you never read anything anyone else posts on this board?

    I don't think I could count on both my hands and feet the number of times I've read someone on here say that their INTJ s.o. or ex is/was a freak...

    I mean... do you know who @ceecee is? Have you read her posts?

    Yeah, pretty much this.

    It's been interesting to see this play out.

    I mean, it makes perfect sense when you think about it (Ne doesn't want to be put in a box; always wants to be outside the box; to vote for one would be to willfully go in a box), but I guess I also kinda figured the ENFPs are so interested in the subject that they'd be a little more willing to dive in and give an answer. Frankly, I think they're just trying to keep their typeC dating options open...

    For a poster who's been here so long, but has so few posts, you do always manage to spring up when the moment fits.

    Yours is a very interesting answer. Do you know what enneagram type you are? Instinctual variant?

    @Zarathustra

    @ceecee is female. I wouldn't be interested in a female INTJ, but perhaps a male one

    I wanna state that I voted under coercion for INTJ, even though I'm not sure about my ENFP label at all, so the results might be scewed slightly.

    I will not name the party that coerced me.

    That is all.
